|Hapi Mari isn't one of my favorites...My first impression was that it's one of those smut mangas where the mangaka dragged the plot with melodrama, 'stolen kisses' and sexual tension in every chapter *cough*Love monster,Desire climax*cough*. Atleast the characters in this manga are interesting..it reminds me of Yoshihara Yuki's works but less crazier. After recently picking up the 4th and 6th vol, I'm glad things changed!

I'm soooooo happy that they finally consumated their marriage. Well, the sex scene wasn't great [Chiwa's overly shy and submissive..] but I LOVE how the plot changed so much after the chapter. There's no more sexual tension that drives the plotline and it's just pure 'Shoujo-romance' story between them.
I'm glad the standards of this manga has improved. Sure there's drama but it's cute. Hokuto's a great and tolerant husband, Chiwa's antics trying to be a good wife never fail to put a smile on my face. It's so sweet looking at them going all lovey-dovey and fighting each other like normal married couples do. It's cute. And I like it. ^^
What are your thoughts about it?
Rape is imminent.
