Warm and fuzzy
So i've finished reading this! Well, there's nothing bad about this manga. It's very warm and the storyline goes very smoothly. There's a little bit of jealousy here and there but still ended up in a fuzzy situation. Overall, it's a nice read! I do like the art too!
Although there are some cliche on this manga, I still find it sweet and heart warming. I recommend this to those hardcore shoujo lover's. Even though the ending is typical for shoujo readers, it still my preferred ending for them. For the not over the top fluffiness and nice artwork I will give this manga an 8 score.
This is the first time I'm fooled by the rating system in Baka-Update.
Normally, manga which has a rating as high as this one, 8.4, is sure to be good. But when I started reading, ok, this girl is speaking to herself, oh hey she meets a "cool" guy (or so he is called numerous times in the series) which is ohsotypicalinshoujo, and then he thinks she's cute, then they kiss, them BAM obstacle, she's so weak, he's so "cool" (again) and calmed (how predictable) and in control (ohmygodgetmeoutofhere), and everything that is so UNREALISTIC and TYPICAL... And at the end [SPOILER ALERT] they get married and lived happily ever after. Oh, did I mention he's only 7 years older than her and they hit it off right after she graduated from high school and he's her father's non-related-in-blood brother? *Rolling Eyes*
Even though I finished it myself but still, this manga is overrated OMIGOD! Why people?? You 800 something people...
*Crying* I wasted 100mb because of this *Crying* Not worth it!

One of my faves
Loved it!! <3 It's one of my all time favourites. The plot is really well written and the art is amazing. I just wish I could find more mangas like this. I recommend for you to read it. <3
Don't believe at the high rating
Another cliched, boring shoujo with cardboard characters and no major plot development. The main couple are overly sweet and lovey-dovey in a cringe-worthy way. And did I mention that this is a complete snorefest which you often read when you have nothing to do on a rainy day?
I love this manga! Is so cute and sweet! The art, the story, and the characters are all so great! i was worried it was going to be a really dramatic manga with all sorts of twist and a dark past, but i wasn't. It really showed how their love and relationship becomes deeper as the story progresses, not it a dirty way that many manga do(which ruins it and makes me hate it) but in an emotional way. It's a great story that i think anyone would love!^_^
This is definitely on my highly reccomended list... the art is beautiful and so is the relationship. It's absolutely heart-warming and I could read this manga again and again and never tire of it. If you're looking for something cheery and romantic this would definitely be a manga you should read.
I will say that I did think the female protagonist lacks some in character... she does develop some background in the later chapters but the novel ends with you still knowing very little about her past-life before she met Jin-ni. Nonetheless, it's not as if she's lacking so much that it isn't a great read, I was just hoping for an insightful chapter about her that never came.
Most Beautiful Shojo EVER
This is my all-time favorite manga. The art is beautiful, the story is beautiful, and their relationship makes me sigh (happily. and jealously) =) I'm a harsh critic, and even I give this a 10. I'd give it even higher if it was technologically possible. completely recommended.
My Fave Romance Shojo
This manga still stands to be my favorite shojo romance manga. It incorporates a lot of the things I like such as age gap, height/size difference, lovey dovey touchy feely, live in lovers, absent parents, guardian relationship, just to name a few! I don't give out tens often, but this, I feel, is a nine for sure. Yes, I was put off a little by the beginning on how they met and kissed all of the sudden and the ending. I love the art and the male lead especially. Sure, this isn't especially deep, but it's heartfelt and meaningful. It is also refreshing as it's not fully ridden of angst and drama, its simple in a beautiful, elegant way. I could read this over and over. In fact, I think I will.
