I don't get the appeal...
I'm sorry, but what exactly is good about this manga? The style is the almost exact same style you see in most shoujo/romance/school-life manga. There aren't many details and the art isn't proportional all the time. And the characters don't have good expressions. Erase the eyebrows and their faces look the same when angry, sad, happy, etc. No offence, there's really nothing special about the art. I don't even want to talk about the plot; it's just reused archetypes that are present in almost every single shoujo manga. If the readers already know the outcome of the story [it is obvious who Hotaru will end up with], the mangaka should do something to keep her readers's attention.
Anyone can draw well, but not everyone can make a good plot that can attract and keep readers. I will give this manga a little more time and give it a rating after I read a bit more. If it's this popular, there's a reason for it, right...?

As others have said, it's a cliche magnet but the artwork really makes up for it! It's a great shoujo for those who are just starting to get into shoujo manga or manga in general. I'm currently on chapter 13 and this far in to it, I give it a 6.5/10.
Im Aikawa Saki-biased. No matter how cliched it is, I will definitely love it.
Gahhh. Im speechless. The way Aikawa Saki draw her characters are really really prettyyyyyyyy omg it makes the story alive. lol
Typical shoujo, as everyone else has been saying. Nothing really new here, and the main character is kind of annoying, but it's cute, it's not plotless, and the art is really pretty.
And, having just finished chapter 12, I am a little curious as to where it will go from here. It kind of feels like a 'the end' already, but we've still got almost two whole volumes left to go. Maybe it'll get more interesting as things progress.
[EDIT] ...No, it didn't get more interesting. The just took the typical shoujo route - no originality at all, and totally predictable as to where it'll go from here.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Did they really have to throw in the never-seen-before pushy ex-girlfriend? Could you possibly have picked a more typical way to continue the story? I doubt it.
At this point, I'm reading this just so I can say I finished it. But I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Entirely too cliche and generally boring - and I don't really like, well, any of the characters at this point. Definitely pass this up :/

It's pretty cheesy at some parts yes but her art style really nearly always gets me hooked. I hate it when the girl always cries tho and the guy and his brothers is always having to comfort her but I still love the other characters. It's definitely a Shoujo manga alright.
i have just read the first chapter, and my head is one side, going wtf? whats with this girl? she has love problems, she got into this new guy, in a few pgs! WTH! its just weird...................the way that she overact for everything! like how the guy pushed her to the wall, and he didn't really do anything to her, and yet she spents the next pgs ignoring and thinking that hes a bad person. i get the feeling that the author, knew and was very excited about some parts in the story, but for it to make sense he needs to fast forward the first parts, which is rather RIDICULOUS! the drawing how ever is great~ it is by AIKAWA Saki
Cliche story. Totally hate the main girl. A typical annoying, teary-eyed, weak, indecisive heroine. I only read it because of the art. I love how she drew her boys. But, I like the older brother more than the younger one. He's just more appealing to me than the main hero. I'll continue reading it to see how more stupid it can get. All of this mangakas stories are the same, clique and has the same type of annoying girl. -__-;
When I read this manga, I almost immediately hated the main character. She likes a guy, but gets clingy with his brother. She a needy, whiny, spoiled, brat of a character. If she was in grade school her actions and attitudes might make sense. But for a high school student, its like she hasn't grown up. She acts like a kid. One of the 2 main male characters is also annoying. Haruna Sensei half the time looks like a girl.
Having said this though, the story does improve. Yes its back and forth with the girl unable to make up her mind, but it seems to mature as the story goes along. Going from a grade school story to a high school story. I don't rate it well, because the beginning is so painful, but I might change my mind when the story is finally complete.
This is the most retarded BS I've ever read in my life. ~_~;
Honestly, stick to one guy. =/ First she gets on clingy with the sensei, then with the black haired dude, then the sensei AGAIN, and the black haired dude again...
AHH, SHE'S DRIVING ME INSANE.
-ONE- guy please.
3 volumes and somehow this pathetic reason of a "love triangle" (or square, in a way, though I dont count it as a square because her friend is so minor of a character she doesn't matter) is still ongoing. IS IT NOT OBVIOUS ALREADY? GET ... TO ... THE ... POINT ...
Anywho, I am kind of rooting for the teacher dude (even if we all know it's not gonna happen). The black haired guy can honestly go off himself, he pisses me off.
