Pretty good

The relationship between the two characters is really interesting. It's a love/hate relationship and I think that's a very realistic view of marriage. I loved the plot and the character development. You really get the feeling of "growing together" in this manga and I like it's pretty typical but not overly gushy! I loved Chiwa's strong and hard working personality but I also loved her weak side because it just shows how human she is. Hokuto is definitely one I had to adjust to though. I didn't like his selfish, arrogant side at first and I thought that his character would probably be the reason why Id stop reading the manga but he proved me wrong! You start to see that under all of that, he just wants to love and be loved. They're a pretty great couple in my opinion, a more realistic couple than other couples out there in the manga world.
9/10!

I'm not giving full mark, not because of some lack from the author but because the protagonists are soooo traditional : a good but annoying bride doing everything she can for her important husband. Ughh I hate that... I prefer people breaking habits smile.

It turned out to actually be pretty good.

I mean everyone said that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hokuto slapped Chiwa a few times, but he pretty much apologized immediantly.
I'm not trying to justify his actions or anything, but I think the author wanted Hokuto to be aghast at what he had just done.

Excellent character development. It keeps me wanting to read more. Not forgetting to mention that it's also an outstanding josei/shoujo manga of the strong-heroine-vs.-possessive/emo-princely-boyfriend genre, lol (^^)b

edit: After reading further, I think it tends to repeat similar incidents, and the routine is already starting to get old. So I would say, it's exciting until around volume 6~7, but I think the series should just go straight back to the main plot now rather than keep repeating the cheesy love-love parts.

Not good enough for Josei

If you are a fan of a simple light romance story with some smutty scenes it's worth to try. You can enjoy it to a certain level. But if you expect more you won't get it.
The strenght, the flow of the story and its characters building are in shoujo manga level. Early chapters were okay until it failed to develop in later chapters. Mostly because of the main char's inconstant behaviors. The setting is in work environment and she is an office lady, that's all ...that can be categorized as Josei.

Seriously, he's so patient with his wifey even though he once a playboy but that's also the reason why he can handle woman so perfectly right?
The pair of this two is great too.Seriously, I can think how my future can be bigrazz

Despite all that, the event is soo sweet and it end up with sweet ending actually between two newlywed. Chiwa preety interesting actually, with her super naive about man - but not stupid, idiotic character.

Could have been better

So the manga is not too bad, the romance is really heartwarming and the drawings are very good, but at some point it got boring and was difficult to keep on reading. Also, I don't know if it's because my culture is different or what (i'm from Spain) but the values of a wife transmitted by this series bothered me way too much, so that's one more reason why I couldn't enjoy it to the fullest.
Anyway, if it had been shorter it would have been waaaay better, as it wouldn't have gotten boring. But overall it wasn't that bad I guess.

Great Beginning But Falls Off   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The first couple of chapters were hilariously funny with just the right dose of romance. This changed, however, in the latter half; I found myself skimming through the pages. There were still very sweet and funny moments but not of the same caliber as the first chapters.

Normally these issues wouldn't keep me from giving this series a higher score but the female MC (I don't even remember her name anymore) got pretty annoying with her bouts of tears. I don't think there is a chapter without her crying -- she's that bad.

thrilling beginning though it stumbles a lot later on

i think the beginning of the manga started off phenomenally with all the romantic tension and stuff between chiwa and hokuto, and later on digging a bit into both of their pasts. later on, however, i started to get bored with all the random plot twists and so much angsting about hokuto's typical family drama. also, hokuto slapping chiwa just seems like character break. wtf enjouji-sensei. since when is that supposed to be acceptable by any standards. and chiwa's just supposed to accept and take it because she's his wife? thanks for encouraging submissive behavior in your female audience.

aside from that huge thorn in this manga, everything else was pretty decent. enjouji maki why do you ruin your good mangas with all this patriarchy bs?!

edit: to all the people who are like "ZOMG HYPOCRITES YOU ENJOYED CHIWA SLAPPING HOKUTO!!" since when did ANYONE say that? -_- no one needs to be slapped for any reason, much less a husband slapping his wife because she thinks she's being an idiot. that aside, what's even more infuriating is chiwa's response. instead of chewing him out, she conceded that she WAS an idiot and then spent the next couple pages/chapters crying over him possibly rejecting her blah blah. what?! in the beginning i believed chiwa had spunk and a backbone, but by the end of the series she was just another snively generic shoujo blob dependent on a dominating man. yawn.
