Too Cute :]

I don't read a lot of shoujo, and when I do, it's usually a good thing :]
It's so cute I don't know where to start, it just left like a warm and happy feeling with every chapter, made me happy.
Only reason why I gave it a 9 is because I think the relationship started...way too fast. But then again I guess it could happen.

If your looking for something deep, this is not it. They met. They fall in love. There are a few complications but nothing so deep that it causes the sky to fall.

No... seriously, don't. It's a light shoujo, without mindboggling complications and unnecessary drama. A cute girl and a cool guy fell in love- that's it. If you're looking for something more serious, than you picked the wrong genre.

Well I'm quite surprised with the good reviews.

It has a very nice shoujo manga artwork. Hot guy, cute girl, yep. They're always lovey dovey and stuff. That part is fun to watch.

But it really bothers me how the development of their relationship is so illogical -_- . I mean how can they fall in love so quickly? They hadn't even gotten to deeply know each other, and then it's more flirting/smooching. Way too much kissing isn't that nice in the story when there isn't much meaning behind it DX

Beautiful Story

I've read the story about 3 times or so. and I STILL like it! The story might not be COMPLETELY original, but at least the mangaka could make the forbidden love scenario interesting WITHOUT turning it into a smut bordering on creepy shoujo manga, might I add the art is REALLY nice. Very nice for it's length, if you're looking for a quick and nice story, I really recommend this one.

One of the best mangas I have ever read and definitely one of the most engaging plots. It has beautiful artwork and is really romantic. Love this manga so much!

Definitely not one for the guys! this is so sweet! Possibly the best one I've read in a while (Manga deprived, it's tragic but social services won't do anything about it) Excuse me for being a sick son of a b**ch but I always like forbidden love (Pedophilia, incest, and other crazy stuff like that) Oh, it's not like I'm giving anything away! Just look at the picture, I'll wait a few seconds...see how young she looks!Ahhhh! love it!!!1

The characters make the story here. They are so wonderful (that's an old adjective I haven't heard in a while) I like how she's so shy and he's so bold. A great pair. You should read it!

This manga was quite well in perspective. But then again I really couldn't see it becoming any better. Overall story was nicely done, and art was decent. I was quite relieved with the plot though. I think I'll stop here though so I don't include in spoilers smile.
