A cute lovey-dovey story with great artwork. I really enjoyed the plot and concept. It'll leave you with that nice warm feeling a romance should.

The only issue I had was the shitty excuse for grammar Sweet-Lunacy translated with. It seemed to appear and disappear ever few chapters. But damn, it ruined the mood so many times.

A few years ago I was really smitten with Hino Matsuri's art, and that made it very easy for me to like her stories... When I look back, this isn't that amazing, but it's still very pretty art and a fairly entertaining story. Even if it's kinda silly at times...

Honestly it was an okay read, nothing much else. The story didn't fully grasp my attention..At times I felt a bit weird about the story line, it didn't really sit well with me. As for the art, I didn't really like it that much but from what I can tell, the art she produces becomes better in Vampire Knight. I didn't like any of the characters especially the main, I thought she was annoying and not much development was shown. Other than that, it kept me a bit interested till the very end, so I'll give it that much.

This story was adorable. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves sweet scenes and a funny romantic story. this manga is one of my favourites.
The art was cute and pretty and none of the characters were noticeably intolerable.
Loved this a lot~
tho i wish VERY badly that it lasted longer =]

The artwork is very beautiful and the storyline is pretty simple. MeruPuri is pretty funny I guess, overall, I guess it's pretty good though I wish it was longer.

Absolutely MARVELOUS, this work is a gem amongst manga! The artwork is beautiful and the plotline is sweet and adorable. Some poor translation (not scanlation, just the speech) in the beginning volumes is annoying, but it's easy to overlook because the story is so endearing. You'll fall in love with the characters, and as soon as the action picks up in volume 3, you just can't stop reading. True love really does conquer all!

The main pairing is cute, but rather odd and it's a little awkward with such an age difference, though it is made up for a little at the end. For a short manga, nearly all the loose ends are tied up (and wonderfully too) but I didn't like how the last volume was so dedicated to closure. Regardless, I loved the entire thing and the ending was so sweet and touching.

Short and sweet, with only four volumes and twenty-two chapters, do not pass this one up! Read it and you won't regret it!

The art was magnificent! What you would expect from a Hino Matsuri's work. The magical love story was fabulous to a fault! I never liked girl gets married to a younger boy-type of story but this is among the exception that I would consider one of the best. You'll never regret reading this story. It deserves more than just reading....savouring it is recommended.

It's a fun read! I thought I wouldn't like it but I was wrong, it's good that I trusted the ratings rather than the synopsis.
