Description
The heroine is named Kinoshita Sakiko. She is 20 years old, and a college student. She is totally in love with her 28 year old university professor, Chifyu-sensei. He is tall, moody, and handsome, with short dark hair and sexy eyes. Unfortunately for Sakiko, he always refuses her very aggressive displays of affection. Yet she never gives up. Even when faced with a housing crisis, Sakiko goes to drastic lengths to earn money so she can stay in the area and continue her pursuit of her teacher. However Sakiko isn't very bright when it comes to making money. She actually tries to sell herself on a street corner!! But her price is too high, and no one is interested. Then she meets a guy on the street named Natsuo. He is also really cute, with long blond hair. He is interested in Sakiko, and after one really great kiss, he takes her to his apartment. Things are starting to get steamy when they are interrupted by the arrival of Natsuo's brother. Guess who it is?

Ending made it worth it.

Ohh I had so many mixed feelings on this one. I despise adultery, one person having multiple partners at once and the like, and the nonchalant approach to it made me angry, initially. The fact the female lead loved both brothers and they were okay with that was unbearable at first, as well.
But around chapter 10 I started to get actually hooked. The mangaka's usual humor kicked in while at the same time things got more serious, and by the last chapter I was teary-eyed and very happy I stuck with this.

So, yes, initially I can safely say everyone will probably hate this due to the nonchalant approach to controversial themese such as adultery like I did, but by the end you realize everything was not mindless babble. The important thing to remember (without spoiling the story) is love is complicated but everyone only has one person in the end. The issues as they seem in the begining are not what they look like at the end.
And I promise you the female lead gets smarter than she starts out as.

Conclusion: Art and comedy are perfect as usual (the real comedy didn't kick in for me until chapter 10-ish, though, but once it does you won't stop laughing), and if you manage to suffer through the first half the ending really makes things worth it.
I have to say this is one of my favorite YOSIHHARA works just because this is the first that made me laugh as well as get teary-eyed with happiness.

This manga was recommended to me because of the amount of comedy in it, which was supposed to be very high and good. And I've gotta admit, this manga was freakin' funny! I just laughed out loud, many times. Sakiko is just so stupid and the way the mangaka drew her, like she's a cat or something it's just so funny.
I just couldn't rate it higher than a 7 though, because the storyline didn't really hook me and some things (well the whole story actually) were just too unrealistic and of course, no manga is realistic but when you're like: 'Wtf, this is just way too crazy. Who the fuck responds like that?' the only answer can be: an oversexed mangaka with an unhealthy amount of imagination. I really love Yuki Yoshihara though. She is very funny and I've really enjoyed reading her works.
Recommended as a light read!

I don't believe in adultery and I think that it kind of crossed the line a bit in this manga. However there were some funny parts through out the story line and I found myself chuckling on more than a few occasions.

Yoshihara-sensei is probably one of my favorite artists. Her characters are always well-develop, her plots are always simple, and she never ceases to make me laugh.

But, truth be told, I'm not really crazy about this one. Although it shares some similarities to Itadakimasu, the latter is just a little bit more bearable for me. Had the love triangle excluded that one particular complexity, then I would have been able to appreciate it more.

This is probably the only series that I've read by Yoshihara that I didn't completely like, but I won't deny it's fun factor and classic Yoshihara humor either.

I love Yoshihara Yuki! This manga cracks me up. So funny.
The plot is a bit insipid(okay, a lot insipid), but it's enjoyable.
It's funny. And I have to say, the art isn't half bad either. Classic smut art--pleasing to the eye, and Yoshihara throws in some very funny faces.

The humor is a tad mature, as are some of the scenes, but I think most of us can handle it. That being said, it's classic Yoshihara Yuki, so if you didn't like her other work, then I don't think this is the manga for you.

Um...I usually love Yoshihara-sensei's stuff (because of the complete and utter crack), but this series just didn't do it for me. Sakiko, what were you thinking?

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Losing your virginity to your love interestís younger brother, and proceeding to practice sex techniques with him while still claiming to be head over heels for the love interest? That's kinda....


Strangely enough, I loved the character design. Their personalities were pretty good, and they were quite comical. Had that central plot been a little different, I would have loved this story just as much as sensei's others. I know that Sakiko was made out to be a straight forward "go-getter"-type heroine (and most of the time I really loved her for that), but *sigh*...really now. I was a little disappointed. I'm not even going to lie.

Like I've said, I don't hate this series. It was actually very good, and Yoshihara'sensei is just as thorough as ever. This one series just wasn't my thing. That's just my opinion though. Nothing more

Story --- 6
Art --- 10
Characters --- 8

The story itshelf is brainless but it's good for persons who are looking for something funny and not too much complicated and here, the manga makes his role well. Even thought, we could find more funny and interesting mangas. The plot almost doesn't exist but sometimes there is no need of a main plot. The mistake here was the non diversity. If we whant to keep are readers intertening we nee to make each chapters diferents or else the story becomes repetitive witch is that case.
The art remembers me of another mangaka... I like the way she does the eyes and the nose. It's pretty original and beautifull. Here I don't think I have nothing to complain.
The characters are original but there personality, at times, becomes almost ridicolous and exagereted like the main character who should be more grow up for here age.
Witch means if you are looking for a light comedy you have find the story you are looking.

I had issues with the plot... At first it seemed sort of intriguing, but who could I side with a woman who does anything she to have her sensei divorce his wife? Although the ending kind of fixed that I suppose... =/

It does have very funny moments scattered throughout the manga, so I did have my laughs when Sakiko-san acted over the top.

For people who love the smutty scenes, this would probably be a decent read for you.

Not a BAD plot, a little cliche, but all and all no bad (not good either... more... fair). What turned me off was the use of sex as the vocal point of the plot. Don't get me wrong, I'm a girl who loves her smut, but that just was.... well it could have been more... I don't know how to describe it, but it just wasn't a strong manga. And that's that.
