It's hard to describe what i think of this manga, but i like it overall. If you a fan of Josei with a shoujo feeling, this is perfect. It has the right amount of drama, that didn't make me want to bang my head against the wall. There are times though that i wanted to smack one or both main characters, but that was just because i wanted misunderstandings fixed right away.
Warning: This is not a manga to read chapter per chapter. I suggest waiting until it's fully completed or reading it by volume. Not only will it keep the story line fresh in your mind, but i feel it's easier to understand characters motivation.
i saw my little sister reading this series and i just have to give it a shot. And after reading it to ch 20 in a few hours i gotta] say this, I LOVE IT ALL THE WAY. DEFINALTY GOTTA BUY IT! Love the storyline, love thr characters and the plot and i love the comedy to it all. S THIS SERIES IS A ABSOLTE 10 in my book.
Honestly, I don't see what there's to like about this manga. A selfish male lead who does change, but still annoys me. A heroine with no brains at all. Annoying cliches. Along with more stupid characters.
Maybe I'm just a black sheep or something, but I just don't I just don't find this to be worth it.
At first seemed like a standard manga, then...
First two or three chapters were alright. Then it went down in the dumps once the mangaka decided to make the girl an idiot. The recent chapters are especially painful and rather degrading to women in general.
I've been a stalker of Enjouji Maki eversince I've read her manga "Fu Junai". I must say that although her usual smuts and illustrations (which never fail to keep me captivated!) are consistent, Hapi Mari is a fresh slot in the array of her works. The romance is slow and the plot develops at an even level. But the recipe is just right to make the story between Hokuto and Chiwa perfectly cooked. I am reviewing this manga while I am at chapter 23. This are my feelings. A fresh manga (experimental, it seems) is succesfully done. Good job!
I'm love this
I must admite I have very resemble character like...Hokuto. I'm a girl so prabobly it has to by Chiwa, but...well, me and him are alike (but of cours no mother-car accident and murder dad or big company in my hand). When he is angry on Chiwa and she don't know why, I know.I'm glad I found a character who I can relate in this manga
Grossly annoying factors..
..added with the adorable nature of the male. I find it hard to like a
Spoiler (highlight to view)
naive woman, who blushes on every touch, is a middle schooler in denial and love and OF COURSE! a virgin, countered with cliched plot devices like fainting at the right moment, who on earth!? does that?
. If you are looking for a Josei with a smart woman- this DEFINITELY is NOT what you are looking for

I've read all of Enjouji Maki's work and this manga is my second best amongst her masterpiece, first is Private Prince. Her style of drawing is what im looking for in a manga and also the plot. Perfect.
This manga gives off the feeling of "wanting more". It really does have a great character development, to chiwa from her husband. It's attractive (: Im still waiting for the next chapter releases. I highly recommend this manga.

As far as fairly standard, subordinate-but-sweet loves brooding-jerk-boss josei goes it isn't bad. There's some character development and the drawing is good, BUT it's cliche, predictable and the female character is not at all interesting. If you like this genre, I suggest reading Midnight Secretary instead.
Excellent character development. It keeps me wanting to read more. Not forgetting to mention that it's also an outstanding josei/shoujo manga of the strong-heroine-vs.-possessive/emo-princely-boyfriend genre, lol (^^)b
edit: After reading further, I think it tends to repeat similar incidents, and the routine is already starting to get old. So I would say, it's exciting until around volume 6~7, but I think the series should just go straight back to the main plot now rather than keep repeating the cheesy love-love parts.
