I enjoyed this manga, will definitely recommend. It's better than a lot of shoujo out there, although it probably has a lot of cliches as others have pointed out. Unlike some commenters though, I did not find the chibi drawings that bad...IMO it's a trivial aspect of the manga anyway.

While I was satisfied with the ending in general (sigh....I'm a sucker for happy endings), I found the twist, where
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Takara breaks up with Hikaru, extremely lame. It felt like a cop out, as if the writer had written herself into a corner (which I think she did) and pulled an asspull to give Arata his opportunity. It portrayed Takara to be a jerk. Not that I wasn't happy, I rooted for Arata from the very start (Takara is perfect. In every. Single. Way. Boring. I was disappointed at first because I actually thought that Takara was the official ship...yay that he wasn't), but the reason Takara broke up exceeded my tolerance for incredibly weird/nonsensical/unrealistic reasons. Yes Takara, because it makes so much sense to try to love someone simply because they saved you even though you would end up hurting her MORE by not sincerely loving her. I felt a bit satisfied when he got owned by her near the end ("no, YOU got rejected..muahahaha...okay I'm exaggerating).

Even though that part of the manga was terrible, it's still a good read. Interesting setup (hmm...maybe I just haven't come across many twin brother love triangles) and interesting story. Love the ending...sigh I'm a sucker for happy endings.

As a lover of shoujo manga, I absolutely, positively, adored this piece by Ikeyamada Go in particular. Sure, her works tend to be rather cliche and a bit repetitive sometimes, but for me, she definitely made Moe Kare work.

Hikaru is one of those somewhat air-heady and annoying heroines I usually hate, but in all honesty, I found her to be rather charming and adorable. Others may be put off by her, but I sure wasn't.

Her love interest then appears, but to add a ridiculously cliche twist to the plot so does his

look-alike (twin) brother!
<---(not sure if this is a spoiler but I'll add it anyway)

And yet, despite this, I continued reading.

I was so glad I did when I finally finished the series. The events throughout the series are hilarious, steamy, as well as romantic. I couldn't stop squealing over the moments she had with her love interest(s). I laughed, blushed, and cried along with Hikaru and the things that were happening around and to her.

A great read for any shoujo fan who isn't too picky and overly-critical of the things they read.

One of the better standard-clichéd school shoujo mangas out there.

The first volumes it was pretty much like most shoujo mangas with the difference that it had quite a fast and smooth development in the relationship of the two main characters. Also the characters were quite open with their emotions to each other. Which I for once found very refreshing.
Some cliches got spared (like the jealous females mobbing the main char, main char was not in the victim role etc.) but most were present.
After half way through the story it even manages to come up with some serious drama and afterwards I wasn't even sure anymore how it'd develop and end. There were 3 possible ways in my head and it took till the last volume until I could predict it again. Was my preferred outcome from my 3 choices.
I think the last 2-3 volumes actually make this manga worth reading.

The art is very moe - totally silly at times, but oh well... I though of it as kind of cute (so I fell for the moe scheme) and it often added to my entertainment (esp. the chibby moments of Arata). I rarely read mangas with such art anyway. Was interesting.

Can recommend it to shoujo fans, it's very shoujotastic, unless you totally can't stand moe (check wiki or similar if you don't know what moe is) and silly art. But that again has to do with taste and not with quality.

If you liked its setting you may try Parfait Tic!. (Not a recommendation from me, just a similar setting)

Life ain't easy, righteous and fair. And love has no on/off button.

another indecisive easy girl, i hated that she doesnt like that she got dumped for another girl, but she just stands there and cheats on her boyfriend who is a good guy. she was so disgusting. both guys should have stayed far away from her.

This is the best manga that i have read until today. it's cute and there are so many unpredictable things that keep happening. I was really happy that she ended up with Arata i supported him from the beginning. It even made me cry for some stupid reason.
But this is totally the best manga ever.

this manga has good plot. not an original one, but a good one nonetheless.
the drawing is ok. a bit on kiddy side, which is definitely a drawback in my opinion.
i picked up this manga because it has bishies in it and i love bishies. lol.

When I first started this manga I rolled my eyes. So much of this was cliche but it did have good character development and the art grew on me. I try to give most anime/manga a try so I was pleasantly surprised when I found it really starting to make me want to read more.

despite every cliche thrown in, despite the fact that it had the kind of artwork i dislike the most (kinda childish, awkward, non-standing out, overly blushing characters), despite everything else, i still managed to like this?? i don't get it XD

despite it all, i actually liked it. didn't think i would at all, in fact the first few volumes i was laughing at it and wondering if i could suffer through and read it all. but i did! and i liked the themes and the story, no matter how cliched. it's all about your first love, first heartbreak, and how you deal with love. very love-romance-cheese-ified. lol. but that sort of story is good every once in a while, i guess. and i really liked how the ending tied in with a part in the beginning. did anyone else catch that.. ? (when she was on the train, and she muttered.. names.. both in the end and beginning) ha.

kind of bitter-sweet. reaaaally cliched. but maybe there's a reason why cliches are so popular? i mean people need to like them if authors want to use the situation so much. x33 time skips were cleverly placed in the right spots to help the story along. and the extra at the end was cute, it kind of gave an absolute conclusion. i haven't read manga with a complete conclusion like that in a while~!

but yeah, so give it a try. you might find yourself kinda liking it.

Meaning of the story

When i first read this manga, i thought that it would be one of those mangas where the heroine's a cute, helpless girl that gets abused every now and then >> so cliche and ovva it!<<
But once i read this,, especially those last few chapters, i seriously cried over them. Ok, i might be some puss-wuss for crying over something that wasn't AS tragic as some other mangas, but i thought this story also had a pure love line in it. When Takara was forced to leave Hikaru after the car accident, i got so depressed after they shared their first and last night together. I literally cried my eyes out for 5 hours straight when i saw her in the morning crying. Looking like a fool, i read the next few chapters as it shows how Takara has to restrain himself from going back to Hikaru even though it's SOO obvious he loves her still. And i cudn't accpet Arata until the very end where he says he wont sleep with Hikaru until he can prove he trully loves her -- && i only accepted him because he looked sooo much like Takara (kyaaa)
Don't get me wrong, i know that there are lotsa people who favour Arata over Takara, and im not picking a fight or anything but i "personally" was disappointed that Takara and Hikaru couldn't be together. I was so happy when i realised Takara hadn't moved on (evil personality appearing) MwAAAAHHAAAAa > i thought Arata was gonna get owned..
I cna't help it, ima prince-lova type and Takara fits it soo puurfectlii,, but then again Hikaru chose Arata and i guess i shud acknowledge that..
I still cry over the last few chapters and wonder what happened to Takara -- did he and his wife have such cute kids too?? or did he go depresso and live off Hikaru remainsconfused Okok im sowwi Takara but if my bf was not then u cud have mee!!

Anyway i just wanted to say i looveee this manga and yea yea its cliche but hey its ur fault if you didn't like it coz of that becoz on the descriptions on wikipedia it says "stereotype" so that just back fires at you>><
This manga is so cute and loviiin,, it isn't very smuttish, just one love scene and even thats brief and more sad than romantic.
Please read and enjoy, but not if you think this is your highly-smuttish sex manga -- be respectful and take some of this to heart.

p.s otaku girl -- hehehe soo cuteee
