That's because I recommend it. I more than enjoyed it XD Kind of re-read it, and I now finished it! Hokuto is definitely one of my all-time favorite shouju male lead. I LOVE LOVE the art, and of course Hokuto. It's a worth read story, good smut scenes and all. Made me laugh quite a bit too. Just read it, even if the ending is kind of predictable, it's still funny. I want more of them! But I'll be watching for this mangaka, which is weird for me, that's how much I loved it, from cliché scene to every not so cliché part. If you love shouju, this is the one for you!

PD. I didn't remember the scene some comments are saying until I read it. Maybe because from one chapter to another it took quite some time. But you'll forget it! And love Hokuto at the end, it's just fiction, let it go for the sake of the rest of the story.

Yay! Finally completed it. It was a really great read. I loved the romance between Hokuto and Chiwa. I wanted to see their baby though! But anyways, I'm glad I picked this manga up. One of my favourites.

So he slapped her, for being dumb........ I get a slap to the ass when Im dumb, but thats just the way my Husband is. When hes dumb I smack him to.... Its not abuse, its discipline. Anyway its a great manga I really wish Viz would get a hold of it.

Okay, sure you guys say that its not a good manga just because husband slapped wife but hey, I'm a girl too, and look at it this way --its always been wife slapping husband, isn't that considered violence too?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And Hokuto slapped chiwa to wake her up, not like "u bitch, how dare u say stuff about me like that and blah blah blah" he slapped her meaning "don't u have faith in your hubby? Where did all those ideas cone from? I'm slapong u cuz u needa wake up! " Sure I was shocked at hokuto slapping chiwa, but he didn't mean ill.
And its not like he abuses her. And didn't Chiwa slap Hokuto many times before?

It turned out to actually be pretty good.

I mean everyone said that

Hokuto slapped Chiwa a few times, but he pretty much apologized immediantly.
I'm not trying to justify his actions or anything, but I think the author wanted Hokuto to be aghast at what he had just done.

I used to like this manga, but I stopped reading this manga
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
since Hokuto slaped Chiwa. I mean, this a shoujo manga! what's the point? make girls understand that if they are being annoying you husband can slap you? that's just wrong, really. And If it wasn't like she was doing something so terrible, like you'd say "well, she was a bitch and that slap was rightful" nah, it was something along the lines :"get yourself woman", and maybe I'm overreacting, but I can't really support a manga where a poor young wife gets slaped for such thing, while she isn't anything but supporting of her husband, where it's suppoused to be about love, being together, and other random shoujo manga thing.
One thing is the whole 'I don't want to have sex-but-I want in the end'/Dub-Con in some shoujo mangas, and other thing is Domestic Violence.

:/ that.

I read it, but don't actually enjoy it much. Chiwa is just spineless and quite annoying. Hokuto was a jerk to start with, but is the only character with actual growth in the manga. Chiwa is still the same crybaby who jumps to conclusions she's been since the first chapter. She's also not even slightly understanding about the feelings of her husband towards his past and family. I don't like how she's portrayed as right in the situations that come up. She's also pretty much a giant hypocrite

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
getting upset about him working with a former lover while she is working on herself and hiding it from him... really now.

Though his faults lie in still doing things that he probably knows will upset her. Then she gets upset and you find out again he's not doing what she suspects him of doing, but this pattern continues. She doesn't have much trust in him at all and is very insecure because of his actions . Their problems could be easily solved if they actually talked to each other honestly for once. It's definitely not an adult romance despite them being married. Her other manga Private Prince was a lot more enjoyable and you got the feeling the relationship was between equals.

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!
