well, i loved it. and i think the art's great. especially the bishie and the main. they're really cute!
Top 20 mangas list. Loved this one. Have read 4 times and will continue to read it when I need a pick-me-up. Love the plot, the characters, the romance, the "drama", and that ending was beautiful! A very, very well-written and drawn manga. I expect no less from Mitsuki Kako. She's brilliant and I love all of her works
Don't believe at the high rating
Another cliched, boring shoujo with cardboard characters and no major plot development. The main couple are overly sweet and lovey-dovey in a cringe-worthy way. And did I mention that this is a complete snorefest which you often read when you have nothing to do on a rainy day?
This manga was quite well in perspective. But then again I really couldn't see it becoming any better. Overall story was nicely done, and art was decent. I was quite relieved with the plot though. I think I'll stop here though so I don't include in spoilers .
this manga is really sweet even though the girl is sometimes naive but the man is protective of her from other guys and she doesn't know that ^^;..the artwork is ok but the storyline makes up for it
It was a sweet read, but the storyline was pretty dull. It made the whole thing look too easy. When in society that really would not be proper and easily looked at as okay. Art work was frog like.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a girl is waking home and randomly kisses someone?? So weird. Then he ends up being her caretaker cause her parents aren't ever around. First why wasn't this happening to begin with and second, great parenting. Then they start secretly dating. The whole manga revolves around their house and even though there are friend that make things "difficult". Not really. They end up doing it together. they are suppost to be uncle and niece but they seem to off the bat not really care even if he was blood related. The fact he's in his 20s and her 16-17? Was overlooked easily as well as her losing her flower to him. And to top it off he goes "I want to date her" and the dad just goes "sure, but I'm pissed about it" with a smile?! Really dull.
Can't believe it...
I'm a girl, I also like romance-shoujo stuff, and yet, I find this series IRRITATED! This manga has such a high rate, and I feel like I have been fooled by it. It's way too cliched, unrealistic, both main protagonists annoy me. >.< I drop it after 2 chapters. Can't continue this. Give it a 2, because of the nice art, lol
One of the best mangas I have ever read and definitely one of the most engaging plots. It has beautiful artwork and is really romantic. Love this manga so much! <3
I really adore this story. The trials the two go through. The internal struggles of each of them. It is truly a beautiful and touching story. I wish it could go on and on, but it did have the perfect ending.
Very sweet (but not overly so)
This was a very sweet & lovely manga... and even though it's listed in the "drama" genre, there's actually not much drama-- it was a very light-hearted read in my opinion. And the length (3 volumes) seems just right for this particular story. Overall, it left me with a very warm, happy feeling.
