I've finally reached the end of Hapi Mari and I couldn't be more content =D This is one of the best I've read, though I could've done without some of the twists and turns smh

I loved the characters. Chiwas was so adorable, and I could just gobble Hokuto all up!! But I could just kill those stupid Mamiya cousins. Grr!! But why was Grandpa so powerless. He's still head of the family... though he's old.

Hehehe The art was also very wonderful. It really helped the story.

One thing I hated though was..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
how could Hokuto not be his daddy's kid when they looked so much alike? I don't like that Enjouji sensie did that. It wasn't fair =(


I wish Enjouji sensei could've showed Chiwa's and Hokuto's child.. I bet s/he would be really adorable =)

That's because I recommend it. I more than enjoyed it XD Kind of re-read it, and I now finished it! Hokuto is definitely one of my all-time favorite shouju male lead. I LOVE LOVE the art, and of course Hokuto. It's a worth read story, good smut scenes and all. Made me laugh quite a bit too. Just read it, even if the ending is kind of predictable, it's still funny. I want more of them! But I'll be watching for this mangaka, which is weird for me, that's how much I loved it, from cliché scene to every not so cliché part. If you love shouju, this is the one for you!

PD. I didn't remember the scene some comments are saying until I read it. Maybe because from one chapter to another it took quite some time. But you'll forget it! And love Hokuto at the end, it's just fiction, let it go for the sake of the rest of the story.

Yay! Finally completed it. It was a really great read. I loved the romance between Hokuto and Chiwa. I wanted to see their baby though! But anyways, I'm glad I picked this manga up. One of my favourites.

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.

Actually, I love all of Enjouji Maki-sensei works, but this is my "favorite" one and the most favorite romance manga I ever read. The art, storyline, and overall is just perfect that I hope there will be a sequel for this manga. RECOMMENDED ONE XD

I picked this up thinking it was a Josei but like what the rest of reviewers said, it's a Shoujo in the skin of a Josei. And it has all the cliched tropes at that. Still, it makes for a light, guilty pleasure read to pass the time.
What's funny is...everything would have been so much better if the author had just broke out of the stereotypical flow and made the MC actually quit her job to go with her senpai in the first few chapters, and from there make herself into a woman capable of standing on her own two feet and gradually be on equal terms with her husband. Instead, the MC is constantly beating herself up as worthless and basing her entire self-worth on the husband and their unhealthy relationship. What saves it apart from the cliched plot devices to throw those two together and force them to grow closer...is how the guy is shown to be an actual cold block of ice when you think he might have thawed.

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.

Very Sexy

This manga is definitely hot stuff. Lots of sexual tension and sweet romantic moments. The male lead, Hokuto, is actually pretty cute (personality wise). Plus, he's sexy as hell. The relationship between the two main characters is really great in this manga. Hokuto is really sweet to Chiwa. I don't know if he's really in love with her yet, but he sure is displaying all the traits of a man in love. There's lots of chemistry and lots of laughable moments. You'll have a great time reading this.

This series was funny, serious, and quite realistic in a lot of ways. I really enjoyed it. There were times where I found myself laughing out loud or talking to myself . I love the art work. There's something about it that's fits my tastes perfectly. The panels were really easy to read/follow. Sometimes I read mangas where the story gets confusing to follow in parts or the dialogue just doesnít work for me. I didnít have this problem with Happy Marriage. The plot flowed nicely and I enjoyed the dialogue because it felt very natural and realistic.

What I like most about this series is that despite some of the obvious clichés here, the relationship between the main characters developes in a very believable manner. It seems natural and it pulls you in. The relationship is charming and that charm carries the story to the end.

The main characters were great - funny, insightful, cute, etc. I also loved the ensemble cast and getting to know about our heroís past. I think the mystery there could have been a bit stronger, but I was glad that it wasn't over the top. It didnít take away from the story. I think my only issue is that our heroineís father disappears for too much of the story. We donít really get to know much about him except that heís a bit of a trouble maker that means well.

Overall, if youíre looking for a mature romance manga, Iíd definitely give this one a try. It was a lot of fun and I read all 10 volumes in two days.

I started reading this with low expectations of it being the same standard smutty josei. It's totally different from my expectation, and a pleasantly surprisingly good romantic comedy. Both leads are decent well rounded characters. Although the Chiwa does have her irritating moments of crying I can't help but root for her success in re: to Hokuto. She's plucky and cute and acknowledges her shortcomings. Hokuto, on the other hand I'm surprised to see that he's not the average everyday forceful boyfriend/husband who commands their SO every so often with no regards for their feelings. He does have his moments of that, but it's not apparent or shockingly stark. At least the author makes a focus to show that he's not some perfect rich kid with no problems or flaws.
Also one of the better parts that I'm happy about is that he considers the pair as equals and upholds the marriage that bind them.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Although there was one moment when Hokuto threatened raped that was uncomfortable to read. I understand it's suppose to be comedic but still...


The plot is nothing really special, it's amusing and really quick to read. If you enjoy shoujo and smut, go for this.

The ending could have been better. :/
