I had my doubts about this manga and even after reading it there were some things I just didn't like, but, overall, I think it was really good.

My list of dislikes is short: I think the story was repetitive with somethings--they argued about the same thing so many times, but I suppose a real marriage would be similar.

And Chiwa's constant crying about EVERYTHING. I don't remember a chapter where she wasn't tearing up. In the beginning I thought Chiwa would be a badass that didn't take crap from anyone, but the moments where Chiwa actually reverted back to that girl that threw a drink on Hokuto were few and far between. The rest is filled with fights, running away, and then making up.

But I guess that kept it interesting. I liked everything else: From the drama within the Mamiya family, to Hokuto's past, I actually like that he works so much and I can't understand how Chiwa can be so sensitive about that. He's a freaking president of a company! He can't entertain her everyday! I like the exs although I feel like Chiwa had way too many admirers and she didn't feel like it was a big deal, but she just wants to roll in a ball and die when she finds out Hokuto had an ex-girlfriend.

I like how everything was wrapped up, although I wish I could have seen an extra of life after the baby. I can't even imagine what that would be like.

A few minor annoyances that were usually resolved by the end of the chapter and sometimes the characters became a little annoying at which point they deserved a good slap. There were moments I laughed, cried, screamed and said "That's it, I'm done with this," just to go on reading it again.

Overall, it was a really good read, I read it all in one sitting(with breaks to stop myself from throwing my computer)and I'm sure I'll revisit this story in the future.

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.

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.

I like how the love wasn't instant, and it took some time before the main characters were an actual wife and husband. It does help that Hokuto is pretty good looking. I enjoyed the story and I always wanted to read more all the time; I even wanted to read it twice. I also enjoyed the love between Hokuto and Chiwa; I could tell they had a genuine love for each other and that's important to me. Even though the ending was good, I wish we'd seem a bit more (like maybe a few years after the wedding ceremony). The only thing I didn't like was how the Chiwa cried in almost every volume. That got annoying. But I guess she made up for it for doing something a bit bold. She is still a weak character, but I don't mind her that much now.

As many before me said this manga started so well and it lasted till maybe 20-something chapter.After that it became repetitive and for me personally boring.
I love how relationship between Chiwa and Hokuto developed and i loved their fights but i think some were unecessary.Chiwa at start was really awesome and she did alot of things for Hokuto.Its funny how at start she believed him when he said he wont cheat but later on doubted him all the time.In the latest chapters she kept crying and doubting him which was annoying me so much i wanted to slap her...so yeah,i also think that Hokuto didnt do anything wrong when he slaped her twice.Just like she did to him because of words he said,she deserved it for what she said to him.Now i dont support violence but you cant put what happened here to that folder.And anyway when we women are so up on being equal in everything,why cant man slap a woman when she hurts him?
One more thing,in latest chapters it felt like Hokuto apologized too much.
Now about art i adore,clean and big,not confusing biggrin
Oh and about sex...for me it blended nicely into story,it was sweet and at moments hot XD

All in all it was fun read and i recommend to people who like bit of comedy and romance with some sex scenes mixed in smile

Not much to rave about, it's pretty average in all aspects. In response to the people complaining about the slap scene and how it was domestic abuse I'd like for all of you to think about all the times a woman has slapped a man in manga, on tv, in movies, etc, if you had no problems with that, then you shouldn't have a problem with this because there is no difference. What has the world come to if it's only a crime if one gender commits it? Besides, by the time you are reading a manga like this you should know by then that hitting people in general is a no no.

But yeah anywho I'd recommend this to people who have some time to kill and not expecting much more than some decent artwork.

I agree with the below comments, people who are pointing out the "Violence" are the very same people who turn a blind eye to 99% of Female on Male violence ...seriously hw is this to be treated differently than all those Obnoxious female leads who keep slapping and hurting their weak gullible male leads? i smell Hypocricy

anyways coming back to this manga, i thought it was really sweet and how they tried to play the Bride and groom part with lots of comedic essence added to it....the Characters evolve towards the end and i guess i am glad i stuck with it coz this is one of those Sweet Shoujos out there

RECOMMENDED

I might be biased, but first off, that art is pretty awesome and pretty. Don't tell me you didn't like the art, cause I sure did and I'm pretty picky when it comes to art when reading manga.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And about Hokuto slapping Chiwa... Well, what Enjouji Maki is trying to portray here is reality. You can't have Chiwa just slap Hokuto and him not be able to. I mean, just because this is shoujo doesn't mean she can't make Hokuto do that. She's trying to tell a story here and well, stories are based off of life so there. I was actually surprised when Hokuto first slapped Chiwa (LOL too much slapping here jk. I think Hokuto slaps her two times...) but then, I'm not mad. I mean, it just goes to show that a guy can hit a girl. It happens in real life, we can't ignore that.

Next off... It was dramatic with all the mystery with Hokuto's family background, but hey, it's not like orphans don't exist. But I hate his family, nuff said. So annoying, and I was expecting him to be the head of the company by the end of the manga but hey, Enjouji-sensei gave us a middle ground. He left the company but he decided to make his own company and have his wife work with him.


Then the sex fits into the story. That's what I like about Enjouji Maki's works. It's not like other smut manga I've read where they just slap on the sex wherever they decide to and not every chapter has sex in it.

And the humor in the story kinda cancels out the drama. It's a perfect balance, from how I see it.

I've actually read all her works in one night and it was all awesome. Any work from Enjouji Maki, I'd recommend to those who kinda like cliches but not really cliches... The ones where the overview of the story is a cliche but how she gets you there isn't.

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 smile
