Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring

How many times must he confess before she gets it? Well I guess I don't mind, love watching the mangaka friend with Ryou-kun and Asuka-chan hahaha. I'm definitely going out and buying the licensed version!

I love Kanno Aya's artwork. It's beautiful, of course, and the pictures are very consistent and er.. "read nicely".

However, I was expecting more from the story, because "Forever Honey" was so nice and deep. Maybe I'm being biased, because I prefer stories with female leads and would've given this manga a higher rating if the gender roles were switched.. bigrazz But minus that, the story is just really bland. It's lacking something that I can't quite put my finger on.

after the first chapter, I was so shocked I could not talk for about 6 minutes. It was just so freaking amazing.

WHY IS IT SO AMAZING?!?!?!?

such a refreshing manga to read the art is well drawn but the live action is much captivating. main guy heroine is good-looking and well, the girl is pretty cute she look a little bit of Toda Erika which i kind of like for some reason. though its a slow scanlate progress its a good thing there's live action.. though i prefer the jdrama i had a go reading the manga... xx

OMG. I can't believed it.
Is this manga for specially me? DX
It just soooooo cute. I just love this Asuka-chan. I can't help it imagining him to be my future lover because, i don't know cooking or girly stuff but know karate xD

Omg, very much worthy this shoujo manga for all shojo lover girl! ^_^
you eventually develop love to this manga character because : -
1. there's Asuka ~ chan! xD
2. very cute drawing and character >.<
3. Not any other shoujo manga, the main cast lead is a guy who is like a girl~
4. ... because it's tooo cute~

like everyone else has said... It's so cute! x3 So far, not much to say about this with only three chapters out, but my rating might change after I read more.

This is officially the best role-reversal manga EVER! And it does it WITHOUT gender-bending, so more the kudos to the mangaka. Seriously.
