great laid-back ecchi rom-com

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.

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.

What everyone below me said is pretty much the sum of it, seriously this is one of the first romance comedy mangas a read back in 2004 and its still not done and its still doing the same old slow shit thats why i keep stop reading this for a few months than go back. this manga was great in the beginning but later on way later on it made me hate slow romance manga and even more it made me hate indecisive, super weak willed male leads.....
