Not extraordinary, but not bad either

At first I was thrown off by the huge age gap between the two protagonists. I mean, 17 year old teenage girl and a 10 year old boy? But Fuuma acts far older than his age, and as the manga progresses, he is drawn older and becomes much more of a 'bishie'. That certainly helps.

Once you get over the age gap, it's a sweet little story of acceptance. The reluctant-fiancee-turned-lover plot isn't exactly revolutionary, but it's still a nice, light story. Worth a try if you have a bit of free time.

Just a couple of extra pages on the end of the last chapter and this would've been perfect for me. Something to show what happened after Fuuma grew up and them getting married or having kids, if that was the way the author imagined the ending (because presumably, she wouldn't have them going their separate ways?).
That aside, I felt sometime the panelling was slightly imaginative and I didn't always understand what was going on. It was a "miss a panel miss the story" storytelling. Personally it kind of bothered me that a seventeen year old fell in love with a ten year old but that's just me, and you expect that when you pick this up. Overall I felt like this was missing something, and the lack of an ending lowered my rating of this series.

when i read the first chapter i kinda didn't like it, it felt unrealistic for a child to do or act like that.
good thing i decided to stick a little longer, i got used to the manga and story got better and better.

at first i didnt really liked it...cause it was a little bit confusing cause i dont really know who is the one talking and im getting the weird messages...<imagine that!>..but fortunately enough...i finally got used to it..

about the art...its not exactly the best...but i prefer it rather than over-the-bishie-art of somekind <that gives me creeps>

the story is also nice!! though i guess i expected too much..*coughmerupuricough*

overall it was pleasant read!! fuuma was so great!!! he is so mature!!! i really think that he is even more mature than older people..about satoko...i didnt really think that she is annoying...shes tough in her own way...

read it!! dfinitely recommended!!

Although it's a sweet read but it's pretty boring at the same time. I thought I could see them get married at the end or maybe see the little kid grow up into a fine man but there's nothing like that. The story might be nice, drawing is okay but there's not much development. It shouldn't have 4 volumes if the story doesn't develop that much. I gave it an 8 mainly because of...HAGANE!! Haha, he's so cute and sweet. Although he's not the main character, but he's so funny and gentle!

I really loved it. Fuuma is maybe the best male protagonist in a shoujo manga I've ever seen despite beeng 10 years old. Maybe it'd have been better if he was 13y old (Young enough to be embarassing beeing his fiance, but old enough to his mature romantic feelings to be more realistic.) but after a while it doesn't matter.

The only fault of this series is beeng too short. I'd have loved to read more chapters like the one during the school festival. And I'd have loved to see how Satokos other friends react if they find out about the engagement, and more so about their (Fuuma's and Satoko's) feelings about the engagement.

I really liked this manga. It was very, very cute. The art wasn't the best, but the story was adorable, and the characters were nicely developed. The age gap wasn't really a big deal to me... and really, I don't think she would be a pedophile. A pedophile is an adult who is sexually attracted to young children. She's not sexually attracted. And really, she didn't want to get married to him in the first place. Very cute. For shoujo readers, I would reccomend it.

I admit I don't really like the idea of an older girl X younger boy couples, maybe I am being strictly conservative for my shoujo's... but this is an exception. I love how the story was made. Everyone should read it.. over and over!!

The plot has a "forced marriage" theme to it that really weighs down the plot. The characters lack of ability to communicate their feelings causes the usual cliche plot devices to crop up. Lastly, although the series calls itself a comedy, the characters are mopey and spend most of their time wallowing in self pity.
