Poor Mugi Tadano! Heartbroken after his girlfriend moves away, he takes a summer job at his friend Kazuki's beachside snack bar/hotel on a tropical island. It seems like the perfect plan - until he meets Yuu, who might just be the cutest person that Mugi has ever seen.

However, if you hope on reading an ending, I wouldn't. Guess how many chapters have come out this year. Just this year, 2008.


Doubt it'll end in my lifetime.

Being a large burly man, I have read mostly bloody and violent manga etc. But I need Warm And Fuzzy Feelings every so often to keep going. I read most of Ichigo 100% until the drama started turning my stomach sour, and similar is coming on with Suzuka so I've put that one down. However, Pastel doesn't cause this. I find it to be warmer and far more comfortable. I did not give it a 10 because I do agree the mangaka could have sped a few things up. Overall I've found the artwork to be very enjoyable, and the characters pretty fun. This isn't mindblowing by any means, but this IS fun and something I can read without needing tums. Just call me a big softie.

I liked this series initially, as I enjoyed Parallel, the preceding work by Kobayashi. At this point though, the plot is getting extremely stale, and a major event needs to occur soon in order to revamp the storyline. Good, albeit simple, art, ecchi fanservice, typical shounen romance story aspects.

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.
