I mean the story gets a little bland every now and then but then something always happen that makes me smile. I kinda wish the ending was a bit more different but oh well. It was good.

I loved this manga! It might sound strange the main lead being 10 years old but it doesnt feel strange. He is so mature and lovable that i cant help rooting for him. And his love for her is so complete and sweet that it makes me all mushy inside. Also the art is very simple and very fitting to the story. I very much enjoyed reading this. It is worth your time.

this was incredibly sweet! i was hesitant to read something with such a huge age gap difference. well, as it turns out, this 10 year old boy is more of a man than many other guys ive read in other mangas. hes hard working, caring and even at the age of 10, tries his best to protect the things he loves. hes a hell lot smarter than alot of other manga guys too. haha.

the only bad points are...the art is not thattt superb...and i wish they did a '10 years later' scene afterwards. i wanted to see the part where they get married, etc!

Satoko (16) lives with her mother and there is a large debt they have to pay. Her mother decided to take the offer of an arranged marriage for Satoko. They both move to the house (mansion) of Satokos future (rich) husband. But her to-be husband, Fuuma, is now only 10 years old. This sweet slice of life manga shows us their everyday life and the beginning of their love.

Although the story seems unoriginal, the storytelling was done very well.

Art is simple, I don't think I found some panel badly drawn. The anatomy is good, the faces are beautiful, it was easy to tell the characters apart, but there weren't that many. The art is kind of sketchy. Actually it had that kind of art I like the most. But I can't give it a 10, because there wasn't really much drawn. Simplicity at it's best.

Satoko is a nice girl, optimistic, a bit of an airhead. I wouldn't say she was clumsy or stupid. She cared for people and wanted everyone to be happy. Kind of reminded me of Tohru from Furuba. You can't really hate her.
Fuuma, a 10 years old boy was quite unrealistic. He didn't act his age, but there were times he did. These were enjoyable. He was flustrated he is younger that Satoko. That made him even younger, lmao. You can't really hate him either.
Although I did hate her mother a bit....... Well, nothing's perfect.

I actually ate every page. Not literally. Couldn't stop reading. It was like made for me. Even the idea of an arranged marriage wasn't that horrible. It was really cute and sweet and I couldn't help but smile all the time I was reading it. Definitely something to read when you are down.

An awesome manga, i prefer shotacons like these, even though the child is 10years old you seriously get the feeling of a matured man. Satoko however shuld be more strong though.

Just a couple of extra pages on the end of the last chapter and this would've been perfect for me. Something to show what happened after Fuuma grew up and them getting married or having kids, if that was the way the author imagined the ending (because presumably, she wouldn't have them going their separate ways?).
That aside, I felt sometime the panelling was slightly imaginative and I didn't always understand what was going on. It was a "miss a panel miss the story" storytelling. Personally it kind of bothered me that a seventeen year old fell in love with a ten year old but that's just me, and you expect that when you pick this up. Overall I felt like this was missing something, and the lack of an ending lowered my rating of this series.

At first I was thrown off by the huge age gap between the two protagonists. I mean, 17 year old teenage girl and a 10 year old boy? But Fuuma acts far older than his age, and as the manga progresses, he is drawn older and becomes much more of a 'bishie'. That certainly helps.

Once you get over the age gap, it's a sweet little story of acceptance. The reluctant-fiancee-turned-lover plot isn't exactly revolutionary, but it's still a nice, light story. Worth a try if you have a bit of free time.

I don't always read mangas that have the younger male older female category but this was an exception because when I saw the cover...I was like:"Oh...this one (looks) cute" yeah I just decide like that. Plus it has the category of Male lead falls in love's just the right one to read at that time (my mood decides what category of the manga that i'll read)
and I was glad that I read this...this manga didn't fail me.
I really love the moments where Fuuma is jealous~

Sometimes the drawing confuses me, during those fighting scenes especially, everything's all mumble jumbled up, just don understand what's going on. I think that it's draggy, the main points were the beginning where they met and the end where everyone share their past memories, then after that it could have fast forward few years later when Fuuma was taller, and see what new interesting feels Satoko will have for him. One thing I liked was that it was mutual love when he was still shorter than her, that shows that she loves him no matter what.
