The manga, so far, has been one of my favorite of romance shounen due to its honest and calm atmosphere of the story. The characters are well built and the drawings are quite something, but agreeing with some people here, I think the story lacks pace while keeping the conclusion. If it's like this, the readers seem kind of forced to follow through the story without considering their real-time track, making them in waiting for the progress that is near forever to be seen. I don't compel the story to be through irresponsibly, but adding more characters at this point is, harshly speaking, pointless. What is the point of adding a foreigner into the circle when it's clearly the time for Yuu and Mugi alone, except that there's some kind of intention of pulling out some fanservice? Are we going to see Yuu and Mugi get married? To me, Yuu seems to be the real antagonist here. It is not an innocence of lovers anymore, it is already an ignorance, irresponsible manner to the relationship. Some might see this as obstruction to get through; some, just like me, are getting impatient.

There is a reason why its so many chapters in. The story does drag in parts, thats how it is for every manga at some point. What you get out of pastell is a unique story with interesting characters. Which is what we are all looking for right? There are some truly awesome moments so far, and its not even done. Whats better is that the characters evolve! They change around each other and what not.

There's fan service every now and then but not enough to make it silly, The art is amazing, like none iver ever seen before. the settings used in this manga are from the real world place. (the Author lived there as a child)
I wait every month for a new chapter to come out, this is really the only manga I do that for.

I have read many manga. Many of them I am still waiting for new chapters to come out. Some I have finished. Well I started this one a couple days ago and I have to say I LOVE IT. It's super funny and the main character Mugi Tadano is not that complex. Usually, in manga like this, the main character is usually a super complex character who battles with himself over who he should be with this girl or that girl, but Mugi is different. He loves Yuu and that's it lol. Well, I love it and don't really care if it has ecchi because i know that why some people bitch about certain mangas. It's just a regular slice of life manga that has some good art.

15 volumes and its still ongoing?? when is this series gonna end? i mean the feelings between Yuu and Mugi are always the same, but noone dare confess.. this situation is pretty annoying imo.. i'd hope we could at least see some more about Yuu's side of the romance, yet we just get to meet new and useless charas who keep saying Y&M make a nice couple togheter, aahh the only reason im still folowing all of this is the art and the fanservice, the plot already died long ago (i swear, if yuu ends up saying she fell in love at first sight, i'm really going to Japan to kill Kobayashi:-D)

great laid-back ecchi rom-com

a very nice ecchi/comedy/romance in slice-of-life fashion. one of few mangas that gives a very 'homely' feeling, while having both ecchi/romance, which just add to the goodness. the main character is not the typical retard of these kinds of mangas, and the girls are also pretty good. the art style is different, but is well suited to this kind of story. pace is a bit slow, with the 1 a month releases, but that just enhances the laid-back feeling, though faster releases would have been nicer. overall, a great, and my favourite, slice-of-life ecchi rom-com.
