Great Beginning But Falls Off   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The first couple of chapters were hilariously funny with just the right dose of romance. This changed, however, in the latter half; I found myself skimming through the pages. There were still very sweet and funny moments but not of the same caliber as the first chapters.

Normally these issues wouldn't keep me from giving this series a higher score but the female MC (I don't even remember her name anymore) got pretty annoying with her bouts of tears. I don't think there is a chapter without her crying -- she's that bad.

very long!

If it wasn't so long I would've given it 10, but somewhere in the middle of it I was kinda bored.. I personally don't like very long mangas that are long for no reason. The story was very good at first, but for me it kept deteriorating. I anticipated the sex for long (which is good and I like it that way) but when the sex parts finally came, they didn't end. every chapter just had to end with a sex scene and I find no purpose in that ^^"
To me it felt like "whoa wayyy too much smut". I know, I'm crazy! there's no such thing as "too much smut", but these are my feeling for this one.
All in all I recommend reading it and at times just skipping the idle parts smile

A Bit Serious and Lacked Romanticness   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

In the start of the volume, i kinda like the comedic romance between them.
But as the chapters progress, the plot become overly dramatic and the male protagonist was always missing in action and not by the girls side. It lacks the doki doki feeling which makes my heart skip a bit.
The sex was a bit unappealing. The foreplay they make was like of those in the yaoi manga. I'm not insulting yaoi manga, in fact i'm a hardcore fan of them. I just thought that the girl's face when they have sex is a distasteful, its not erotic and the girl seems always in pain.

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.

It was entertaining, an easy read as well. I liked the manga...the female protagonist, I wish she would be a stronger woman. I was surprised by the male protagonists
'S sharing of feelings. I don't see it usually in many manga. I'm still not sure about some of his character traits and actions.

Hapi Mari isn't one of those romance mangas that are boring as hell. It's one were you see the ups and downs of a marriage. It isn't one of those that are over dramatized. It truly feels like how a marriage would be in real life. Chiwa may be an idiot but she tries her best in anything she does.

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.
