Description
From Aerandria Scans:

Takamura Uru takes her mother’s remarriage as an opportunity to strike out on her own and begin a part time job. Filled with the thought of “If only I could make someone happy…”, she begins working at Café Bohneur, a shop famous for cakes; but the employees, Ichirou-kun and Shindou-san, turn out to be incredibly unsociable. These two, though frightening at first glance, begin to change something inside of her. This is the start of a romance about Uru’s search for happiness.

Contains the Oneshot "Suitei Seinen Shoujo"

If I had to pick something about this manga that makes it stand out, I'd say it's the humor. I laughed so many times. Somehow Uru's expressions never get old. haha Aside from that, it's a pretty standard reverse harem as others have said, but it's done well in that all the characters who fall in love with her are likable. I was slightly disappointed that it's obvious who she'll be with from about page one since I liked the other characters more. *cough* Sou *cough*

Also, I'm not sure if it got canceled or the author just got sick of things and wanted to end it, but the ending was really rushed, It felt like, how many loose ends can I tie up in three chapters (which is surprisingly a lot) sort of deal. It was mostly satisfying, but could have been a lot better as somethings were still left unsolved and it just felt extremely rushed.

I really wanted to hear about the manager! For a while it seemed like we'd get to know eventually, and then it was forgotten. Also the whole thing with Sakuraba being the father felt like it came out of left field. And the two slowest people ever realized their feelings and confessed in the blink of an eye, and not even a kiss!


Also, somewhere in the middle the author decides to introduce like 10 side characters in consecutive chapters and it gets kind of boring and confusing since some of them look kind of similar. I almost stopped there, but just keep going! It gets really good again after that! All in all, I'd say this is very good for what it is. Definitely read it if you want a good laugh!

It's cute but it wasn't my cup of tea though. I thought it was unnecessarily long and the plot went way off from where it started. That is to say, some of the stuff that happened later kinda came out of nowhere to me. The "plot" appeared too late (I would seriously say the main conflict starts at chap. 51) for my liking and the ending left more questions than it answered. Also, most conflicts were so predictable and episodic, I had to skip them.

This manga would have been a lot better as a simple comedic love-polygon type story.

Although repetive with very shallow conflicts that were all easily resoved each chapter, it was still sweet and likable for the first five volumes or so. I started to get bored even by that point, though, so when then scanlation quality for the volumes that were unfinished by TP went downhill fast, it wasn't worth the struggle to read it.

Well i thought people were exaggerating about Uru, but it's turns out she is quite cute, in a non annoying way. I can actually see why the guys would be falling for her. Her most charming feature is her strength, she's no damsel in distress, if anything she's the knight who comes to the rescue.LOL

I like the bit of humor that zips into the chapters, along with the glimpses about their family background and such. It's impressive that the series stayed good throughout so many volumes! My favorite part was how there was an underlying mystery or secret, where we got certain clues in every volume, but not knowing everything 100% until towards the end.

One of my all-time favorite shoujo mangas have finally been picked up! And what's more, by TOKYOPOP~! I cannot even begin to express how super duper happy I am!!!

Cute and simple art. Fairly simple plot in the beginning, but with the latest chapters and all, I feel that there's more to the story, depth wise I mean.

If you have not yet read this manga, then please do so because I assure you that you will not be dissapointed. :3

Picked this up a long time ago and only just finished it (though I skipped quite a bit). It's comedic and adorable, your typical shoujo; but be warned it's undesirably lengthy and will likely bore you at times.

This manga was really good! It was light, cute but definitely not too fluffy or over-dramatic. The main characters aren't whiny or annoying at all, they were all very strong and independent. I especially love Uru. Despite her innocent smile, she is quite the strong character, she's not like other shoujo girls who rely on the guy to solve everything. She does things herself and she figures out ways to solve things without causing trouble to the people around her. It's a light heart-felt manga but it's definitely worth a read. You'll fall in love with all the characters and their character development.

One thing:

I wish there was more romance. I mean, it was cute and all but it was so slow and the ending wasn't satisfying enough for me. I woulda been happy if they kissed in the end when he comes back or something. AND OMG ICHIROU!! Ugh.. it's hard when the main character gets close to both guys and both guys care for her equally but she has to choose one but she doesn't choose the one who makes it the most clear how much he cares for her. and it's just heartbreaking...


Overall a 9.

Overall i liked reading this. It was different than i imagined it to be, but in a cute way. All the characters are loveable and the storyline down the road dug into more complex issues which i wasnt expecting. Uru, i dont know why but she reminds me of Tohru, you cant help but love her and want to protect her (even if she probably doesnt need it with that incredible strength of hers) xD

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I really love both Shindou and Ichirou and knew from the start who she would end up with. Its a shame it really wasnt Ichirou though since I felt they had a strong chemistry with another and even more interaction but at the same time Im not disappointed she didnt end up with him (maybe since I already knew from the start). Im a little upset though you didnt get to see Uru and Shindou kiss in the end! :( Everything was pretty rush and i felt it wouldve had a better close with all the other characters if it were just another volume longer.

I didnt like how the author, even after three years, had all the other guys STILL in love with Uru. I only wished even if there wasnt another girl in the picture for all of them at least have them over and happy for her instead of still aiming for Uru when she's already in a relationship. But its OK I made up my own story for them all anyway with a very good ending. especially Ichirou T,T

This is honestly one of my favorite mangas of all time. I would highly encourage everybody to read it! It's so uplifting and funny and it's a touching story all at the same time. I absolutely adore this, the characters are wonderful, the plot is really enjoyable and it's innocent and cute. I love this. Please read it!

I loved this manga. It had me laughing every chapter. It was possibly one of the best manga I've ever read.

But I wish the author would've included some love interests that actually stood a chance. Because it was pretty obvious who Uru was going to end up with.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When Uru turned Sou down, and he cried, my heart broke into little pieces. Some little part of me was hoping she'd be with him. But If she doesn't want him, I will gladly take him for myself.


The ending was so rushed. I hated it. It's like she wrapped up this amazing book in less than a chapter. The time skip was done so wrong. You don't get a glimpse of their married life, or get to see their children. I was kinda ticked off. Because of that I had to knock a point off.

At the end of the day, It was a really good book. I would recommend it to any of my friends.
