I do admit that the first chapter - which sets the premise for the whole story - is a little...unrealistic? Apart from the low probablity that the very guy she kisses and falls in love with is her uncle, to fall in love after just one kiss without knowing each other seems a little shallow. However, that being said, I do believe the mangaka did that to prevent the story dragging on. It's refreshing that the manga focuses on what happens after they get together - rather than the process leading up to it - in a very slow, unmelodramatic way while still keeping you rapt.The development between their relationship, the closure the ending gives and the length of this manga - not too long, not too short - all combine to make this a beautiful, light read without any of the usual shoujo heroines and whinnings that go with them

Oh dear lord, I absolutely adored this!! It was so gorgeous. The mangka has shoujo down to a pan. She doesn't bombard us with tasteless smut or unnecessary angst; there is the right level of romance and sexiness. Furthermore, whilst the heroine is not an ass-kicking woman, she is not weak and pathetic. Plus, she's really cute. You can see what the male lead sees in her; I would wink

There is also some romantic opposition, but it is more realistic; when she meets his old girlfriend rather than her turning out to be a backstabbing bitch she is a normal woman; after all, this annoys me in shoujo (why nice people date heartless bitches). There's nothing too dramatic in opposition.

I'm torn between wanting this to be much longer, and being glad of the short length which means it wasn't dragged out and tedious. The art is really pretty too, which is rare for a shoujo of this nature! Definitely recommend!

I can't say enough good about this manga. Wish I could find more like it - romantic w/o being smutty and altogether lovely. I sometimes go back and read it again just for the pleasure of the story and the characters' development.

this manga is one of my favourites .Everything about it is good; the art, the story, the telling.
I especially liked the way the wee bit of smut in is done well not like other mangas where it focuses more on the smut and not the stuff behind it.
I also liked the way that there are no real complications[except the parents and that is resolved well] to the story, it just focuses on how their love plays out.
Another thing that I love about this story is the way that the mangaka ends it ;with a bit on what happens after not just a "they live happily ever after" that tends to keep you guessing.

Bottom Line : This manga is a must read for all those who want a change from the complicatedness of other shoujo mangas.

Haha, this one was really cute. And very refreshing too!! No drama, no angst, no twists, no secrets~~! Just simply love. <3 Very cute. Something to relieve your mind when you're depressed over a twist in your drama (i.e your OTP broke up or something) and to remind you that there are happy endings out there. Though they didn't go through much, almost no, hardship, you can tell there's a pure love there. And I like how 'like' turned into 'love'.

Anyway, it's good. Could've been more plot or hardships though, so I'm giving it a 9.

I don't read a lot of shoujo, and when I do, it's usually a good thing :]
It's so cute I don't know where to start, it just left like a warm and happy feeling with every chapter, made me happy.
Only reason why I gave it a 9 is because I think the relationship started...way too fast. But then again I guess it could happen.

If your looking for something deep, this is not it. They met. They fall in love. There are a few complications but nothing so deep that it causes the sky to fall.

No... seriously, don't. It's a light shoujo, without mindboggling complications and unnecessary drama. A cute girl and a cool guy fell in love- that's it. If you're looking for something more serious, than you picked the wrong genre.
