The story may seem typical but sometimes thats one of the good points of a book. Whenever im in an angry / bad mood or feeling annoyed and i read one of Mitsuki Kako's works i just feel calm and light hearted again....(I'm also smiling sometimes without realising it, lol)
So if you're looking for a nice simple read that mostly displays happiness i recommend this to you.
The art is nice, the Female Lead looks quite cute (or adorable) and mature in a way, while the Male Lead looks quite handsome. One of my favourite artists.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The Male Lead's weakness is sooo funny! XD
...but then again...im scared of centipedes too....

I can't say enough good about this manga. Wish I could find more like it - romantic w/o being smutty and altogether lovely. I sometimes go back and read it again just for the pleasure of the story and the characters' development.

this manga is one of my favourites .Everything about it is good; the art, the story, the telling.
I especially liked the way the wee bit of smut in is done well not like other mangas where it focuses more on the smut and not the stuff behind it.
I also liked the way that there are no real complications[except the parents and that is resolved well] to the story, it just focuses on how their love plays out.
Another thing that I love about this story is the way that the mangaka ends it ;with a bit on what happens after not just a "they live happily ever after" that tends to keep you guessing.

Bottom Line : This manga is a must read for all those who want a change from the complicatedness of other shoujo mangas.

this story gives me the good chills. nice flowing artwork, it's not too stiff and complements the very nicely paced storyline. too bad it's going to end in 3 volumes, but it may be satisfying enough to justify the shortness.

I guess it is pretty good but the main thing that really bothers me the most is the drawing. The guy's fingers are really fat.

It was a sweet read, but the storyline was pretty dull. It made the whole thing look too easy. When in society that really would not be proper and easily looked at as okay. Art work was frog like.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a girl is waking home and randomly kisses someone?? So weird. Then he ends up being her caretaker cause her parents aren't ever around. First why wasn't this happening to begin with and second, great parenting. Then they start secretly dating. The whole manga revolves around their house and even though there are friend that make things "difficult". Not really. They end up doing it together. they are suppost to be uncle and niece but they seem to off the bat not really care even if he was blood related. The fact he's in his 20s and her 16-17? Was overlooked easily as well as her losing her flower to him. And to top it off he goes "I want to date her" and the dad just goes "sure, but I'm pissed about it" with a smile?! Really dull.

There is nothing creative or original in this manga. The plot is contrived and the characters aren't well developed. But if you're just looking for more shoujo fluff this will do in a pinch. I've underrated it, but only because it is so highly overrated.

Oh dear lord, I absolutely adored this!! It was so gorgeous. The mangka has shoujo down to a pan. She doesn't bombard us with tasteless smut or unnecessary angst; there is the right level of romance and sexiness. Furthermore, whilst the heroine is not an ass-kicking woman, she is not weak and pathetic. Plus, she's really cute. You can see what the male lead sees in her; I would wink

There is also some romantic opposition, but it is more realistic; when she meets his old girlfriend rather than her turning out to be a backstabbing bitch she is a normal woman; after all, this annoys me in shoujo (why nice people date heartless bitches). There's nothing too dramatic in opposition.

I'm torn between wanting this to be much longer, and being glad of the short length which means it wasn't dragged out and tedious. The art is really pretty too, which is rare for a shoujo of this nature! Definitely recommend!
