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"

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.

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 start with good story and character but after volume 8 or so it became kind of mehh, it is not bad it just drag too long with the author introducing too many character that actually not used too much. Also after awhile the author keep hinting bad thing and introducing new antagonist but it was done really badly, because how it resolve so quickly, it make the whole thing looks lame and not as big as the author want it to looks.

I also doesn't like the slow romance at all it's feel so forced it is sooo slow and suddenly going at full speed and then suddenly poof its over. Honestly if you want slow romance I would recommend Taiyou no Ie, this one done really badly, but regardless it is still fun manga to read.

I dropped it after a while because it was too much repetition, and the actual romantic content was almost non existent. I think this titled was probably aimed at younger girls (12-13) and for someone a little older like myself, this title just doesn't cut it.

That's the bad thing about shoujo, you can't really go by the description or the series tags. You never know what your getting or for what age group until you start reading the story.

Cute, but way too long

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.

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

CLICHE

A simple, sweet manga if you're looking for a nice cliche where everyone falls in love with the protagonist and everyone has one or two interesting character quirks to spice things up. It's like every other manga out there, but there's technically nothing wrong with it (besides everything being overdone) so I couldn't give it a score lower than a 7. The characters are likable...2D but likable. I got to the 7th volume before I gave up, so it is worth a look. Don't force yourself to finish it though.
