Vaguely reminds me of another manga...
Whirlwind romance, it is. A lot of smut and romance, not much plot... Basically an idealized world for a hopeless romantic, weak-willed female who just want to meet the perfect guy, fall in love, have a lot of you-know-what and still feel insecure of the entire relationship.
I would actually think this how some shoujo manga was set out to be.. simple, no-nonsense, just romance and heartbreak so I wouldn't judge this story too harshly.
Still a good read if you like those stuff. Otherwise, avoid!
Not reading anymore
The latest chapter (chapter 28) all the main character does is cry, waaa Hokuto is cheating on me Hokuto is cheating on me that's all that happens. HE IS NOT CHEATING. I use to really like this manga but the sex isn't really tasteful it's more like let's do it because we need to put fan service into every single chapter and the storyline seems to be going no where as of yet. What is with Chiwa's crying anyway? It's so so so annoying and she always seems to make Hokuto mad. Then he turns into some violent person who practically storms out making you think they're over so so many times. This manga is ok until you get to the most recent chapters where the main character Chiwa becomes a typical shojo "heroine" and Hokuto violent and sort of masochistic. Don't read if violent guys and crybaby main leads are not your thing.

It's hard to describe what i think of this manga, but i like it overall. If you a fan of Josei with a shoujo feeling, this is perfect. It has the right amount of drama, that didn't make me want to bang my head against the wall. There are times though that i wanted to smack one or both main characters, but that was just because i wanted misunderstandings fixed right away.
Warning: This is not a manga to read chapter per chapter. I suggest waiting until it's fully completed or reading it by volume. Not only will it keep the story line fresh in your mind, but i feel it's easier to understand characters motivation.
i saw my little sister reading this series and i just have to give it a shot. And after reading it to ch 20 in a few hours i gotta] say this, I LOVE IT ALL THE WAY. DEFINALTY GOTTA BUY IT! Love the storyline, love thr characters and the plot and i love the comedy to it all. S THIS SERIES IS A ABSOLTE 10 in my book.
Honestly, I don't see what there's to like about this manga. A selfish male lead who does change, but still annoys me. A heroine with no brains at all. Annoying cliches. Along with more stupid characters.
Maybe I'm just a black sheep or something, but I just don't I just don't find this to be worth it.
At first seemed like a standard manga, then...
First two or three chapters were alright. Then it went down in the dumps once the mangaka decided to make the girl an idiot. The recent chapters are especially painful and rather degrading to women in general.
I've been a stalker of Enjouji Maki eversince I've read her manga "Fu Junai". I must say that although her usual smuts and illustrations (which never fail to keep me captivated!) are consistent, Hapi Mari is a fresh slot in the array of her works. The romance is slow and the plot develops at an even level. But the recipe is just right to make the story between Hokuto and Chiwa perfectly cooked. I am reviewing this manga while I am at chapter 23. This are my feelings. A fresh manga (experimental, it seems) is succesfully done. Good job!
I'm love this
I must admite I have very resemble character like...Hokuto. I'm a girl so prabobly it has to by Chiwa, but...well, me and him are alike (but of cours no mother-car accident and murder dad or big company in my hand). When he is angry on Chiwa and she don't know why, I know.I'm glad I found a character who I can relate in this manga
Grossly annoying factors..
..added with the adorable nature of the male. I find it hard to like a
Spoiler (highlight to view)
naive woman, who blushes on every touch, is a middle schooler in denial and love and OF COURSE! a virgin, countered with cliched plot devices like fainting at the right moment, who on earth!? does that?
. If you are looking for a Josei with a smart woman- this DEFINITELY is NOT what you are looking for

I've read all of Enjouji Maki's work and this manga is my second best amongst her masterpiece, first is Private Prince. Her style of drawing is what im looking for in a manga and also the plot. Perfect.
This manga gives off the feeling of "wanting more". It really does have a great character development, to chiwa from her husband. It's attractive (: Im still waiting for the next chapter releases. I highly recommend this manga.
