I finally found the joy in watching anime again.

I watched the anime of this first and was already hooked by the opening. I just love how this mangaka creates such unique characters. Indeed, it is funny, but not too comedic. After I watched the two episodes, I read the manga and thought the anime had better quality of illustration even though their basically the same. I'm not saying I don't like the manga; I totally looove it! It doesn't say much about romance, but I am 99% sure there will be. If you love shoujo manga, I would recommend this.

well.. based from those two chapters that i've read... it's comedy and kinda mature... but i like it! especially kurara.... you guys should give it a try... it's really goood ;D...

Ehem! After a week i decided to edit my com. From before(which was the one up there) ^^^^
i'm sure people(some) who check out this manga watched the anime first(becuase for the past 6 weeks before the anime even came out, this page doesnt have enough info nor visitors till the anime was aired) well naturaly it'll become popular .. BUT THE ANIME AND THE MANGA WILL CONFUSE YOU!
I'm telling you,, both of them are good! BUT CHOOSE ONLY ONE OF THEM TO SEE ... Cuz since the manga and the anime ALMOST has the same day of release date... You'll get confused between the two, BUT! If u can bear with it... Go ahead..(^_^)
