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!!!

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.
but all in all, it was decent. (:
&&the art is a plus. just try it and see. ♥♥~

I used to love it, and even tho they're just raws I can see there is WAY too much freakin blushing and tears going on later it's ridiculous! Anyways...they're all drawn well. *nom nom nom* I prefered the other pairing better than the one she ends up with but meh...that's my tastes. Hope you've enjoyed my useless uninformative comment. \(^o^)/
stopped off at volume 13
the art is freaaaaking amazing! I used to love this manga and the authenticity of the characters' emotions...but by volume 13 and the love triangle was just starting in full force (and the series doesn't end till volume 22), i thought it was just too much to take to watch Fuuko switch between Ichi and Daiya. This would have been more readable if the story was condensed to 10 volumes. It's been many many yea rs since i started Parfait Tic. The indecisiveness and the crying was welcomed back when i was a teen. Now after seeing many strong heroines in other shoujo manga, I'm losing patience.
However, I do recommend people read it at least up to volume 13 and admire the art. The art is one of the best in the manga world.

I totally agree with infamyss comments on this manga, it's exactly what I had felt about it! The first time I read it, I couldn't take Fuuko's indecisiveness. She was switching between Ichi and Daiya, and I kinda got sick of it.
But re-reading it at one go till the end gave me a different feeling. I've to admit I like it a lot better than I did initially.
One lament is.. bad ending. It could have been rounded up more decently, I thought it was quite abrupt.
