Poor Mugi Tadano! Heartbroken after his girlfriend moves away, he takes a summer job at his friend Kazuki's beachside snack bar/hotel on a tropical island. It seems like the perfect plan - until he meets Yuu, who might just be the cutest person that Mugi has ever seen.

15 volumes and its still ongoing?? when is this series gonna end? i mean the feelings between Yuu and Mugi are always the same, but noone dare confess.. this situation is pretty annoying imo.. i'd hope we could at least see some more about Yuu's side of the romance, yet we just get to meet new and useless charas who keep saying Y&M make a nice couple togheter, aahh the only reason im still folowing all of this is the art and the fanservice, the plot already died long ago (i swear, if yuu ends up saying she fell in love at first sight, i'm really going to Japan to kill Kobayashi:-D)

a very nice ecchi/comedy/romance in slice-of-life fashion. one of few mangas that gives a very 'homely' feeling, while having both ecchi/romance, which just add to the goodness. the main character is not the typical retard of these kinds of mangas, and the girls are also pretty good. the art style is different, but is well suited to this kind of story. pace is a bit slow, with the 1 a month releases, but that just enhances the laid-back feeling, though faster releases would have been nicer. overall, a great, and my favourite, slice-of-life ecchi rom-com.

For me, it is perfect in all aspect (story, comedy, art (cute!), speed (I'm a mole with a slow brain, so I like slow pace). This one is better than Parallel, Orange road.. I enjoy reading this story repeatedly smile Before this one, I was readying something like Berserk,..Maji,..Azumi,.. and last, beside this one, I'm following Open sesame, as good as this one.

Not one of the best, but definitely acceptable. Honestly, the story flows slowly, which ain't really the best option, but not bad actually.

The art is ok, quite cute actually, but sometimes too plain, to the point that you can't decipher each character's reaction to an event.

A longer carbon copy of Parallel, up to some extent. Harem-ish too (somewhat), but not unbelievably so. Ecchi scenes are rampant, but since the characters are geared up to be more cute than sexy, you won't react to it that much.

I think it's a great and a really cute manga. Somehow though, I can't wait for it to end!

This manga is pretty good, but not Awesome.
Most of the character designs are just too similar and bland, but the fanservice is very well executed.
Story is also good but nothing that keeps going in your head till you read the next chapter/volume.
Definitely check it out if you're into the genre. But I like reading other series better.
