Well, I must say,..

I really did like this manga, the art is very nice. But I just plain HATE plots like this one. I can't really say that she might end up with Tsukasa and it's too early to draw conclusions but personally in my point of view, this would be your overly-dramatic yet typical shoujo. I love Kazuma, but looking at Tsukasa, I conclude he's a complete jerk, BUT wtf?! a jerk with a soft side? (Just like in Moe Kare) I suspect that Kazuma might never be more than just a "friend" to Midori, since she and Tsukasa has quite a history...

And Midori, oh yes, she actually is very strong... but wtf? She's actually a lot more weaker when around Tsukasa. And Kazuma, ohh my. The poor boy is in love with her, and here she is driving him over the edge unintentionally...

Anyways, I must stop... Flame at me all you like.. Honestly, I really do like this manga and surprisingly, I'd like to see how it ends (:

i like this manga cuz it's really cute with the whole love triangle between midori, kazuma, and tsukasa. . . it reminded me of skip beat because of the whole revenge thing and the girl surprising others, especially cuz she didn't cry. . . she kicked a soccer ball straight into tsukasa's face!!! but she's not as interesting a character as kyoko in skip beat. . . and is it just me, or does tsukasa resemble sho fuwa from skip beat??!! definitely check out these two mangas. they're awesome!! but omg, i'm sorry kazuma. . . even though in real life kazuma's much better than tsukasa, i can't help but like tsukasa. . . he cares for midori and something happened within those three years that they didn't see each other. okay, i admit it, i'm also just a sucker for bad boys. xD

its so cute! Every time i read it, my heart beats so fast, and i just get so sucked into the story, i don't know who she'll end up with though... i kinda want her to end up with the guy that she first liked when she was little even though he's a bit mean, but he does show signs of affection from time to time and its just so cute even though the smut doesn't exactly match with the type of drawing, its still too awesome!

i tried reading it... but she looks like a girl. She has boobies!
And they are obviously there... but noone notices, like magic.
wtf is going on?
*I don't even think they draw her naked well, so what's the point of the smut? XD*
Maybe I'll try to read it again later, but I couldn't get past chapter 2.
The revenge story reminds me of skip beat, but dirtier and on fast foward. Replace entertainment business with soccer, and make the heroine less awesome.
The art is cute though! Too cute really... chibi one scene, her having sex the next. >>;

the plot is very cute (in a sick ecchi sort of way) eventhough it is a bit revealing and grown up, the manga it self is addictiong, and come on who are we kidding, when it all comes right down to it were all perverts. the main character is very naive, but that is one of her strong points, she is also very cute and funny with a kickass one of a kind personality!

Despite reading all of the good comments about this manga... ><

The plot is..unrealistic. The main character is naive, lacks in common sense, and is just..annoyingly stupid? The 'ecchi' part just..doesn't belong. It just makes the main character look dumber than she already is. Also, as a gender bender, why doesn't she bind her breasts? The male characters must have an eyesight of 3/20 or something to not see her chest.

...
Actually, if you dropped like 90% of the ecchi parts of the manga, it'd be tolerable. (Maybe. At least, I hope so.)

No, never mind. There's no saving this series.

I love the main character.
She's so fscking strong I love her.
Whenever that jerk does something awful I always think "Smack him, kick him, punch him in the face, anything. Please just hurt him right here and now"
and BAM!
A soccor ball in the face =)
I love this story; smut, comedy, drama, cliche mixed with originality, and lots more.
This is a MUST READ.

one of the best mature mangas i have ever seen!!! gotta love the love triangle here. and oooh, the cliffhangers are gonna kill ya.... i swear i had died* LOL. several times after reading each chapter only to find out that i have to wait for another days just to see the next chapter of it... I SO SO LOVE THE CLIFFHANGERS!!! really the best manga out there... and you don't have any idea at all with who's ending up with who... i really have the feeling she might end up with kazuma since tsukasa has only been the focus on the first few volumes with not much of a love progress between kazumaXmidori... just like the story of moe kare.... but anyways, i actually don't care if she ends up with anybody since she deserves to be loved by both of them... yaaay! definitely a must read manga!
