Fuuko is a happy and cheerful girl. One day, two cousins, Daiya and Ichi, move into the apartment upstairs. Cold Ichi and mischievous Daiya gave a very bad first impression! All three are going to the same school as well! How will Fuuko's high school life turn out?
Note: Based on the manga, a TV-Drama was aired by the name "Love Buffet."

Before, I was already at my limit and wanted to drop this manga because of Fuuko's indisiciveness however I was bored one day and decided to read book 1 -17 in one go and I was like "HUUUUH? WHY DID I HATE THIS MANGA IN THE FIRST PLACE?" I mean, reading how much these two guys break her heart makes my heart really broken too. She felt infatuation. She got hurt. She wanted to move on. She fell in love for the first time. She was hurt once again. She wanted to move on. And so she decided to try loving someone again. I mean, isn't it some kind of reality to some of us?
and I also don't think now that she goes back and forth between cousins. It could be true and obvious that she can't completely choose between them but it's probably because of the fact that they're cousins. and that no matter what they are, where they go, they will always be bounded with the word "cousins". If Ichi is just some random guy who she fell in love with, If Ichi isn't any related to Daiya, If Ichi isn't in Fuuko's class, If Ichi only doesn't live above her, she would have completely gotten over him. Fuuko sees Ichi 24/7 so no matter how much she wants to move on, if Ichi is around, she just can't. She fell in love really bad for Ichi so I really understand her.
I don't hate her anymore. It's only a normal thing to act this way after falling in and out of love.Just like Daiya said before, it would be weird if she didn't fall in love with either of them; she's surrounded with handsome and awesome guys.
So I'm going to give it a 9 for the romance covered in this manga is deeper than I thought it would be.

3.5 years of reading and still going!
Ahh, I just realized I've been reading this manga for 3 1/2 years now. Thinking of it that way is rather incredible, haha. There were certainly times when I got really tired of some characters, and impatient with how it dragged things on (though, looking back, I think part of this was because the scanlation group working on it began to release less frequently), but in recent chapters I've found it a lot more enjoyable and just really fun to read (plus a new group has picked it up! yay!). Nanaji-sensei has a great sense of humour The story itself is rather basic and doesn't have a catchy gimmick or something to set it apart from other shoujo manga, but the way it's drawn and written are what make it worth reading. And after spending this long reading about the characters, I can't help but be interested in them!
So anyway, I think my point is... if you seek a LONG shoujo manga with a nice mixture of drama and humour and adorable art, you should read this. And try not to get impatient and give up in the middle, because it does get better, in this humble reviewer's opinion! (also, it is a lot more enjoyable to read a few chapters at a time. with Margaret magazine's twice-a-month publication, a single chapter can be frustratingly short)
OMG!! thx for the spoiler... It did annoy me in the middle, and made me boring as well,,, but till the 20th, i just love it,,, Found that fu-chan finally lubb him that much,, and when i noe the end, i decide to find it ASAP!!! she actually back to tha first man!! yay...
Eh... I don't know how long it's been droning on like this, but man I don't know if I'm going to consider reading the rest of the chapters once they're scanlated, or just wait and read the last chapter/volume when that's scanlated while skipping the rest. Seriously, this indecisiveness is driving me nuts. I'm only giving this a 7/10 because I love Daiya so much. And seriously, wtf with the latest chapter. Like it couldn't get any worse, and then you throw in something you see IN A KOREAN MELODRAMA.
I used to like this, before everything degenerated into a whiny and indecisive mess. It's natural to cry after something saddening happened, but to keep on crying and crying for the same thing chapter after chapter, it's a wonder that her friends still stuck by her. Typical shoujo.
Ichi's personality dissapointed me...he's always surprised at everything she says...Im still early in the series but It seems while shes drooling of daiya, hes gonna start drooling over her..which makes me mad...
As the manga goes on, its as if everyone is falling in and out of love with everyone..kinda sh*tty if you ask me. I wanted to see atleast one consistent pairing...if it continues like this I wont be able to continue..shoujo's are too much like soap operas..they get annoying after a while..

well i read the ending in japanese (didn't understand it though) and i have to say that i am a little dissapoint about who she ends up with but i still think that this manga diserves a decent rating because when you get to the point where you are totally wrapped up in it like i was, all i have to say is that this was that i had a lot of fun reading it and that it wasn't a waste of time in my oppenion!

i love this!!!
i love this manga sooo much........daiya is sooo cool and cute!!!......
Spoiler (highlight to view)
who will fuuko end with??....... is it daiya or ichi??..... if you choose ichi, you're wrong!....... cuz she will end with DAIYA!!!.... hehehe...... theres a lot lot of twist in this manga... and the heroine here is such a "cry baby"....... i love the love triangle here...... ^_^
is crying wrong?
if you think, that all manga's heroines should be tough, go and read shounen... what's wrong with crying, when you're hurt? maby she's a little crybaby, but I think, most women are (count me in). though I'm a shoujo-veteran, I found this story interesting. what shocked me the most is that I didn't dislike this whole "yo-yo" love between three main characters... I kind of understand Fuu and her feelings and I don't find them superficial. which is strange, couse it's not suppose to be like that in reality (and usually- I'm more judgemental).
The manga was really good until about the 13th volume. But after that in just went downhill in my humble opinion. The heroine just turned out to be really stupid. And I really liked her until that 13th volume. After that she just got kind of annoying. It's a classic shoujo manga with a tiny twist to it.
