No... seriously, don't. It's a light shoujo, without mindboggling complications and unnecessary drama. A cute girl and a cool guy fell in love- that's it. If you're looking for something more serious, than you picked the wrong genre.
This is a really heart warming manga that was just such a cute and enjoyable read. I recommend this one.
it started well, the pace was good, the art was nice to and it ended and ended well.
Err.. "cute" :D
I usually hate shoujo and stereotype them to having bad art, but the art in this series is really beautiful and cute. The story is nothing revolutionary but it's well done. I've recently found some good shoujo(with good art) but unfortunately some are really drawn out and, naturally, become boring. Fortunately, this is not one of them.
Overall it gets a..
DEFINITELY A RECOMMENDATION!
I can't believe I've put it off until now. >.> This manga was AMAZING. I loooooved it. The moments are NOT smutty, but romantic. The mangaka did a wonderful job. I want to cry now. ;-;
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
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!^_^
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.
I'm such a sucker for relationships with age differences...
Haha, this one was really cute. And very refreshing too!! No drama, no angst, no twists, no secrets~~! Just simply love. <3 Very cute. Something to relieve your mind when you're depressed over a twist in your drama (i.e your OTP broke up or something) and to remind you that there are happy endings out there. Though they didn't go through much, almost no, hardship, you can tell there's a pure love there. And I like how 'like' turned into 'love'.
Anyway, it's good. Could've been more plot or hardships though, so I'm giving it a 9.
I've read the story about 3 times or so. and I STILL like it! The story might not be COMPLETELY original, but at least the mangaka could make the forbidden love scenario interesting WITHOUT turning it into a smut bordering on creepy shoujo manga, might I add the art is REALLY nice. Very nice for it's length, if you're looking for a quick and nice story, I really recommend this one.

It was so adorable!
Definitely not one for the guys! this is so sweet! Possibly the best one I've read in a while (Manga deprived, it's tragic but social services won't do anything about it) Excuse me for being a sick son of a b**ch but I always like forbidden love (Pedophilia, incest, and other crazy stuff like that) Oh, it's not like I'm giving anything away! Just look at the picture, I'll wait a few seconds...see how young she looks!Ahhhh! love it!!!1
The characters make the story here. They are so wonderful (that's an old adjective I haven't heard in a while) I like how she's so shy and he's so bold. A great pair. You should read it!
