Fuuko is a happy and cheerful girl. One day, two cousins, Daiya and Ichi, move into the apartment upstairs. Cold Ichi and mischievous Daiya gave a very bad first impression! All three are going to the same school as well! How will Fuuko's high school life turn out?
Note: Based on the manga, a TV-Drama was aired by the name "Love Buffet."

I totally agree with infamyss comments on this manga, it's exactly what I had felt about it! The first time I read it, I couldn't take Fuuko's indecisiveness. She was switching between Ichi and Daiya, and I kinda got sick of it.
But re-reading it at one go till the end gave me a different feeling. I've to admit I like it a lot better than I did initially.
One lament is.. bad ending. It could have been rounded up more decently, I thought it was quite abrupt.
Seriously where does the title come from?
Seriously where does the title come from?
I know the ending (well not the whole thing but who she ends with. I like the couple), and i know that there are still more volumes to come with hard core painful drama. I USED to like this piece but not as much (at least i think so) but i still download a chapter when i see it is released. Dammit this manga makes so confused. My fave character is DAICHI!!!! Cute energenic hero of mine >_<

After Chapter 112 I was like "and there it goes again" I mean WTF is he thinking? I really liked Ichi but the thing with his somehow "ex" was just not necessary and very stupid and naive by him. It showed his lack of character and now i think Daiya is the better choice. I chear for him

Somebody help me
The heroine is so silly and I dunno what's in the mangaka's mind to give her a new hairstyle every second day - that's so unrealistic and lets her look like someone who only cares about her looks. Well girls do care about that esp. around that age but that here is just absurd. That point made her very unappealing to me. Also that her love wavers like a grass stalk in the wind and the story is very dragging.
Can't explain why I keep reading, was about to drop it several times but I always end up looking whether there were new chapters released XD Well I guess I really want to know with whom she'll end up with and how emo-boy will develop. Also the art is very pretty and fresh and young.
I guess it's a very entertaining piece of work for ~14 year olds.
I actually love this
I just have to agree with infamyss, blackr0se and lys completely. I don't care what other people say about this manga, because I love it and nothings gonna change about that. I love Fuuko and Daiya. Not just together, but individually too.
good but got really terrible
I liked it at first... because the drawings were pretty (especially Ichi.) HOWEVER... it got soooo boring and long and sloooow. First she likes this guy... then she likes the other guy... then she changes her mind and goes back to the first guy... blah blah blah, it just keeps going like that. It's like they're the only three people alive on earth and she has to choose one of them to mate with or mankind will die!!! -shakes head- If you like shoujo mangas with a lot of "heartfelt" moments and complicated love triangles, then this one is for you. If you don't... then don't read.
it drags too much...i dont' mind the girl being indecisive but sometimes i think it's just ridiculous........suddenly, Daychi breaks up with her cuz being with her make him hates himeself...wut is that?!?! i think the girl should confess and not wait unitl the last minute....... and the ending...........wut is that.........and drag so long...........at least wrap it decently sigh..... ... .....
it exceeded my expectations; re: Fuuko
LMAO. No, you do not violate the shojo world's law when the heroine is indicisive. There are people like that. Fact.
At first I was about to drop the manga because of the art in the first volume but surprisingly it got better. And I am not surprised of Daiya and Ichi's attachment to Fuuko because frankly, she's near them. Figuratively and literally. And it may be a flaw to others but it is not entirely Fuuko's fault for being confused between the two.
I understand when people say she cries too much--but there are characters like that. You cannot turn every single person into a steel-cold robot and be cool about it when their heart gets broken. THAT would make a boring storyline. And for someone as naive as her, it is relatively fine. At least not all women in this story are mushy weepy women.
I give it a 9.5 because of the first volume art. It gets better (and so does the plot), so there. I recommend it for those who do not wish every single heroine to be a hardcore non-feeling robot. That is all.

Before, I was already at my limit and wanted to drop this manga because of Fuuko's indisiciveness however I was bored one day and decided to read book 1 -17 in one go and I was like "HUUUUH? WHY DID I HATE THIS MANGA IN THE FIRST PLACE?" I mean, reading how much these two guys break her heart makes my heart really broken too. She felt infatuation. She got hurt. She wanted to move on. She fell in love for the first time. She was hurt once again. She wanted to move on. And so she decided to try loving someone again. I mean, isn't it some kind of reality to some of us?
and I also don't think now that she goes back and forth between cousins. It could be true and obvious that she can't completely choose between them but it's probably because of the fact that they're cousins. and that no matter what they are, where they go, they will always be bounded with the word "cousins". If Ichi is just some random guy who she fell in love with, If Ichi isn't any related to Daiya, If Ichi isn't in Fuuko's class, If Ichi only doesn't live above her, she would have completely gotten over him. Fuuko sees Ichi 24/7 so no matter how much she wants to move on, if Ichi is around, she just can't. She fell in love really bad for Ichi so I really understand her.
I don't hate her anymore. It's only a normal thing to act this way after falling in and out of love.Just like Daiya said before, it would be weird if she didn't fall in love with either of them; she's surrounded with handsome and awesome guys.
So I'm going to give it a 9 for the romance covered in this manga is deeper than I thought it would be.

3.5 years of reading and still going!
Ahh, I just realized I've been reading this manga for 3 1/2 years now. Thinking of it that way is rather incredible, haha. There were certainly times when I got really tired of some characters, and impatient with how it dragged things on (though, looking back, I think part of this was because the scanlation group working on it began to release less frequently), but in recent chapters I've found it a lot more enjoyable and just really fun to read (plus a new group has picked it up! yay!). Nanaji-sensei has a great sense of humour The story itself is rather basic and doesn't have a catchy gimmick or something to set it apart from other shoujo manga, but the way it's drawn and written are what make it worth reading. And after spending this long reading about the characters, I can't help but be interested in them!
So anyway, I think my point is... if you seek a LONG shoujo manga with a nice mixture of drama and humour and adorable art, you should read this. And try not to get impatient and give up in the middle, because it does get better, in this humble reviewer's opinion! (also, it is a lot more enjoyable to read a few chapters at a time. with Margaret magazine's twice-a-month publication, a single chapter can be frustratingly short)
