Description
Despite her family's protests, Aoi Sakuraba decides that she is going to marry Kaoru Hanabishi, her love of eighteen years. Once he realizes that her intentions are genuine - and that she's not just trying to get him to reconcile with his estranged (and domineering) family - he begins to definitely warm up to the idea, too. What obstacles must the two overcome in order to be together?

The characters in this manga are what kept me reading it. I couldn't put the books down until I knew that everything would turn out right. I'll admit it, I had a tear in my eye in the end because it was so emotional. The ending is so worth it, so stick it out.

IT IS completely scanlated

Updated the series info, please don't change...
Yep, series is completely scanlated as of now. You want the scans
you have to check out on FH.
And those are TP scans so I hope your alright with that.

As for the series itself, it's not your typical harem comedy where the main
protagonist is either indecisive or a complete moron and girls still flock around
him...nope Kaoru is diferent, he's both strong in mind and his resolutions and
is definetly NOT indecisive. All the charactes are given enough of a background
to stand firm and are very likeable and realistic. Even the antagonists have their
own motives why they're acting the way they do...they're not your typical I'm a
bad guy so I act bad...plot and storyline are ok and also arose from all the other
pointless harem series *cough*To Love Ru*cough*...

Overall a good series and worth reading.

Ai Yori Aoshi-my thoughts

I have to say that, this manga has been great. It was fully a love-story and the feelings the lead-characters had for eachother while they lived in the same building with new people coming in to the house, to live with them.
All of the characters in the manga had a different story behind them, and some of them had a similarity as their background.
The new thing for me with reading romance/harem/comedy tagged manga is that the main-couple is already deeply in love and they both know about eachothers feelings while trying to hide their love from the rest of the world.
Even with "missunderstandings" their love is strong, compared to what in other mangas quickly turn the loved person to hate the main-char.

This is one of my most favorite manga ever. Awesome storyline that breaks away from the overdone and cliche. It's still a harem comedy, so there's still some of the usual stuff. Great artwork. Maybe not at the beginning, but it gets better. This I believe was one of his first works, so Kou does get better. Some chapters of the last volumes definitely ain't for kids. I was so mad when Humanist quit at volume 10, but recently a guy at Franky House took it up. I highly recommend this manga. Lots of heart felt moments, good and bad, and a compelling cast of characters who you fall in love with completely. If you end up liking it in the least, you should also read Umi no Misaki as well.

Anyone scanlating?

Is anyone scanlating this manga? I enjoy it very much but according to baka-updates the last scanlation was over 400 days ago, and I can't find any newer chapters. I don't like reading mangas that don't finish scanlating, since I get really into good mangas then I never get to read the end. One of these days I need to learn japanese or something so I can just read the raws >.<

Stick it out.

Stick it out through the harem elements and other frustrating elements. The underlying story really comes out in the end and just makes it all so worth it. The beginning and end are definitely the strongest, and I couldn't put the books down as I went through the last three volumes. Best I've read, and after how I've felt about some series, that's saying quite a bit.

There are a lot of nudity in this manga but they haven't kissed once. I think the mangaka focused a little to much on the bobies but not on the face.

p.s:I stoped reading at chpt 17. I can't take it any longer.
