Fuuko is a happy and cheerful girl. One day, two cousins, Daiya and Ichi, move into the apartment upstairs. Cold Ichi and mischievous Daiya gave a very bad first impression! All three are going to the same school as well! How will Fuuko's high school life turn out?
Note: Based on the manga, a TV-Drama was aired by the name "Love Buffet."

Don't judge a book by its cover like I did.
I avoided this manga for a long time. LONG TIME. And now that I'm reading it I can't wait to find out what happens next! The beginning was boring (childish, silly, blah art), but then the storyline started getting better and better until I finished reading the last scanlated chapter some time after 3am. That's over 10 hours of non-stop reading, folks. Ridiculous. The story makes me laugh, cry, and I don't know how many times I've screamed (aloud) in anger at the characters and their dumb mistakes. Or laughed so much and so loudly my family members want to know what the heck I'm reading. But I love it and I highly recommend it.
I still love this manga. I didn't think I'd love it though. The first time I saw the cover I instantly went: "ew", but the art is actually gorgeous. Flawless actually.
Read this if you don't mind one or two love-triangles, read this is you actually like to NOT know who the girl will end up with, read this if you're into romance and comedy. Try reading it, despite the many comments on how it becomes a little bit too much towards end.
*clap, clap, clap*
bravo to the author for keeping perfect art. I truly love the drawings, makes me fall in love with both male leads, but...in terms of character, the only one I like (or, love..><,) would be Daiya. I've read a lot of manga which has playboy characters but Daiya is probably the most lovable. He plays with girls simply because the girls themselves want to play, but he doesn't play around with serious girls as he respects their feelings for him. This manga made me laugh every chapter, kept me interested from start to finish (and, in the future..><,) and I'll probably be re-reading this all-over again after some weeks. Want to fall in love reading manga? Read this. Cos this is all about falling in love...though, only up to that point. Because if you're looking for falling in love and seeing it being shared, then, probably you'll be pissed later on. haha. I like this manga, and I love Daiya! woohoo...(though my type is definitely Ichi, but Ichi is disappointing during the Iori-arc. It was a huge turn-off.)
Hello everyone. I've read plenty of shounen romances, but this is my first shoujo romance I've ever read, and it's pretty good in my opinion. The art was a huge turnoff for me at the start, and it took me a while to get used to shoujo art, and I could tell that the art was getting better later on. The pace of this manga was slow but it really fits, and it feels pretty natural. The reason of the pace was Fuuko's development. She was a silly genki girl at the start and struggled to move on, and when she was trying to move on she made many mistakes. I loved Daiya and Ichi too (no homo). Two bishonen falling for Fuuko is a bit...unrealistic for me. Both of them made many mistakes too. Ichi was confused with his past and then being hot-and-cold, and Daiya was taking his first steps in to a serious relationship despite being a player. Overall, I enjoyed the struggle. And yay for Aiko-senpai and Isocchi, those two are awesome!!!
Spoiler (highlight to view)
At the first 10...or so manga volumes, I could totally relate to Fuuko with no serious question. But as soon as she starts dating Daiya, she comments and questions about the smallest and stupidest little things that happen around her. WHO the hell gets curious where Daiya went with his other girlfriends? She's become very childish while dating Daiya, she overreacts over the slightest romantic gestures Daiya's done for her, and she honestly didn't have to date Daiya when she knew for sure she wasn't over Ichi. My intesterest for this manga started falling DRAMATICALLY when she dated Daiya. But no doubt, the beginning's got a good start. Honestly, I'm assuming she might not end up with either one of them; she might end up with some other dude as the manga skips 5 years ahead of her lifetime. HONESTLY.
I enjoy love triangles and I hate short stories. For me this was a good combo. I loved the art and enjoyed the improvement in her style as well, I thought both guys were total bishies, she was cute, although a little loli.
I enjoy all the characters, I didn't think Fuuku was switching all the time, she was moving on and as this was a long manga, it did take time. It was more unrealistic to have both hot bishies fall for her, but then, the manga played with that anyway. But I was more invested in the males than the girl, so I enjoyed the struggle.
Its by no means original, but I found it quite satisfying. I disagree with 5 volumes, but she could have made it shorter and finished it by the 18th.
DRAAAMAAAAA. It would probably make a good 5 volume book, but the author drags it out to 21. Think fruits basket, but if Tohru (the main character) had fallen in love with both Yuki and Kyo on the first page and then it went on to be 21 books. Just about that. Yeah. Howeveeer I'm not saying I don't like it, just prepare yourself for drama, and lots of it.

The art was only satisfactory. The drawings of the characters were.. *speechless*. It may have gotten better later in the series but I'm a person who judge a book by it's cover so.. - - .. After reading a few pages & seeing the girl with that fat face + the guys who didn't look like a bishie ( I'm a big fan of bishies ), I simply had to give up this manga.
Plus, it was predictable.. (After the summary, I already had a picture in my mind that this could be a rather intense love triangle with alot of tears from the female, considering the length of the manga) And I was right, after reading all of the comments.
Therefore, I would not rate this manga as I have not read it, and I would never want to read it ( I already had a bad impression of the manga from the few pages I have read.) Also, I do not think it is worth the time to read this manga up to X chapters , and give up.
To all of the lovers for this manga, happy reading
worst thing to read
Art - 10/10 but I dislike the manga so I cannot even indulge in the art. If you are sensitive individuals who get depressed because of the manga they read, avoid this manga. At all costs. I loved this manga in the beginning. But after a while, when Ichi had his b**** fit i just couldn't take it. I mean, come on! I know the ending of this and i wish I didn't =|
Gets Pretty Tiring, BUT Okay. =^=
in my opinion, it was really good at first. the storyline and art was perfect for any shoujo manga. i got pretty far, but then the love triangle and story sorta pushed it, but i decided to continue to give it a chance. after a while though, it just got plain annoying.
