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.

I gave this manga a 7 because while the manga started off pretty good, it started getting really boring and i mean REALLY BORING. I wont spoil to much but nothing happens after some major romantic developments, I gave it a decent review because the beginning was a decent read. Also the art manages to get worse...much worse I find it hard to look at the characters now and it's not even that the artist got lazy or something, the damn drawing style just became incredibly stupid. W.e though 7 for decent start.

I had a big smile on my face but not before going through all that "at the edge" moments. I agree with eNviS, I mean what the &*%^!!! If that chapter 80 doesnt come, I will seriously kick my laptop.. I gave 8.5, because I am neither nine-ing or eight-ing this manga (this author left me undecided).

Hmmm.. the charater changed.. I mean, Yuu's personality changed. gah!!.. i'm getting irritated with the author..
