This manga has got to be the best friggin' manga I've ever read thus far. It's been months since I first saw it. I'm still waiting for scanlations and even when I read other good stuff, this manga will always remain number 1 for me.
I'm a fan of gender-blender manga. Like gender-blender? Give this a read. It's funny, the art is very nicely drawn - very pretty characters, the romance between the two main characters, Umi and Naka, is extra sweet because usually they are bickering or Umi is harassing (verbal and physical) Naka in some way and that makes it even more surprising and sweet when a little romantic scene comes into play. Basically it's one of those love-hate relationships. (except so far, the 'love' is just developing) I don't think this is like any other manga I've read.
So if you want a fun, sweet, humorous manga to read, I HIGHLY recommend this. Well.. I'll just recommend this for everyone. You'll really like it.
the characters are this mangas strong point, also if you like a romance with good advancing speed then this is for you. read up to vol.2
I have just complete reading it and what can I say, it is simply amazing I LIKE EVERY COUPLE IN THIS MANGA Spoiler Alert :
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Umi and naka are cute , but Ichigo and chi were so cuuuute and Iku and Mihane were awesome I specially was sad at chi's love to mihane *sorry I do not know if her name is right or not*
anyway you must read it and you will understand me The End :
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The last chapter was so cute seeing the growing up Umi and seeing Iku and mihane getting married is just way too awesome
over all it is a perfect manga
Cute, but just not my cup of tea
Cute as a whole, but some plot arcs are redundant and the pace is too uniform. The author carefully focuses a lot on character growth; however, some of the developments are just not very convincing to me, and I don't grow attached to most of the characters. All in all, I like this manga a lot, but I just don't love it. Maybe that's just me. Still would recommend it to shoujo readers.
Dry and disappointing
It's hard to read unless you find the side characters interesting. Most of the story focuses on Naka failing as a model. Meanwhile, romance happens with her and Umi without any meaning other than she wants to defeat him/move forward and he can't let go of her. But the worst part is so much effort is place on the romance between the side characters of Mihane and Ikue. This is more about Mihane and Ikue falling in love than Nake and Umi. While Naka and Umi come off as 2D with little personality and little to no effort placed on the development of their romance. If emphasis was placed on Naka and Umi's romance instead of Mihane and Ikue's than this would have been worth reading. Lastly, Mihane is Naka's competitor and she isn't even interesting but there's even a love triangle for her?!

nothing very great
i like the premise but wont say its innovative, (remember Shoujo Shounen ?) its morale boosting to some maybe thats y ppl liked it but please dont compare this to kodocha, which is a work of art..this manga is cute, the drawing lines seem drawn in a way to emphasize the lightness of the atmosphere though of course she cries, he consoles, very typical actually

Greatest of the Greastest-ness.
This is officially my favourite manga, I've just bought volume 5 and it gets better and better in each volume, there is so much humor, whenever I read it, it just cheers me up! I've read the raws up to ch.74 as I'm studying japanese at school. The afro-ness is really random too. It's funny when Umi and Naka get embarrased and start doing weird things, thinking they need to go to the doctors because they have something worng with their hearts lmao. All the characters are funny in their own ways! Funniest are Naka, Umi and Tsutsumi! Anyways, it's a MUST READ!! =]
i love this manga soooooo much!!! it so cute i love naka and umi>.<yeahhh there so cute>.<but i wonder how nake and tsutsumi well be as a 2 sum .men at least to make umi mad or something then the manga welll bee more amzing then it is now but this manga is A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
aaw....>.< I just bought volume 4 and the story is getting even more interesting. At the beginning I thought, that there is no plot and so on,but then I read vol.4 and I definitely love this manga. It's very funny, I can't stop laugh ---> AFRO xDD and there is also Tsutsumi and the sister of Chi-san (I forgot her name uu'''), who brought the turn, I just can say: I knew it > !! And Fukuyama-san's freetalk is also very funny xDD READ CHARMING JUNKIE it's worth it.
((sorry for my bad english, i'm just a 14 years old girl, who just learned english as a subject in the school))
