Description
27-year-old Hotaru would rather sleep at home than seek romance, but due to unforeseen circumstances, suddenly she’s living with her boss, Takano. What’s more is that she now has a budding relationship with Makoto, who’s younger than she is. Like a dried fish thrown back into the ocean, can she learn to swim again and rediscover the ways of romance?

Rare Josei   
Rating: N/A

One and only Josei with a mid twenties heroine that I have come across (since most are high school girls, honestly do they really have such an active life?), so I was sorta looking forward to this. I still like it and thats coz of the boss. Nice to see an actual mature man who is pretty unfazed by Hotaru's antics biggrin It isnt the best but I do agree it could be bette. However, the setting is good though very shoujo-ish, still I like the childishness of the character a bit coz they could have made it absolutely boring. Am goin through the RAWs now..

well - I've only watched the live drama (google it) ^^~ it's nothing deep but it's still pretty funny. If you have spare time - do watch it *cough* on mysoju.com *cough* anywayz... final words: not by any mean great nor deep but entertaining nevertheless.

When I started reading it, I was turned off by the superplain art and what seemed to be a lame shoujo plot hook -- a 27-year-old woman has to live with her boss. But actually, it doesn't seem too contrived. ^^
Lower rating because of the art.
