My Fave Romance Shojo   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This manga still stands to be my favorite shojo romance manga. It incorporates a lot of the things I like such as age gap, height/size difference, lovey dovey touchy feely, live in lovers, absent parents, guardian relationship, just to name a few! I don't give out tens often, but this, I feel, is a nine for sure. Yes, I was put off a little by the beginning on how they met and kissed all of the sudden and the ending. I love the art and the male lead especially. Sure, this isn't especially deep, but it's heartfelt and meaningful. It is also refreshing as it's not fully ridden of angst and drama, its simple in a beautiful, elegant way. I could read this over and over. In fact, I think I will.

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.

Beautiful Story

I've read the story about 3 times or so. and I STILL like it! The story might not be COMPLETELY original, but at least the mangaka could make the forbidden love scenario interesting WITHOUT turning it into a smut bordering on creepy shoujo manga, might I add the art is REALLY nice. Very nice for it's length, if you're looking for a quick and nice story, I really recommend this one.

Definitely not one for the guys! this is so sweet! Possibly the best one I've read in a while (Manga deprived, it's tragic but social services won't do anything about it) Excuse me for being a sick son of a b**ch but I always like forbidden love (Pedophilia, incest, and other crazy stuff like that) Oh, it's not like I'm giving anything away! Just look at the picture, I'll wait a few seconds...see how young she looks!Ahhhh! love it!!!1

The characters make the story here. They are so wonderful (that's an old adjective I haven't heard in a while) I like how she's so shy and he's so bold. A great pair. You should read it!

It was such an adorable story despite being cliched and pretty much a typical shoujo. But I love the art style and the story actually made me go, "Aww.." a couple times. A cute romance story with beautiful art.

i mean it's the typical shoujo, and I love shoujos because of that. the couple is very sweet! the girl doesn't act dumb, but she's innocent in comparison to the guy because of the 7 yr age difference.

this manga is probably one of the worst manga i have ever read,,it is not just cliche it is nonsensical!!! i didnt get it when a girl saw a man under sakura trees and suddenly he kisses her and then she likes him like crazy!!!and also the man likes her all this in one chapter!! i double-checked if there were a prequel but i was wrong,,,the art was also not very good,so dont be deceived by the cover,,sorry,but this manga was no good for me and just wasted my time as there was no plot in the first place!!!
