Fairly high quality here, compared to her other one-shots, which was good. But the published one-shots of this mangaka (and she has a lot) all generally seem to have a pattern quality-wise. There are four one-shots; two are average-good, one is average-bad, and one is a gem. In this case it's 1/3 no Kareshi that's the gem. It was adorable ^_^ Cute, short and made me laugh.

I loved all of the stories. The last is kind of cheesy but it has some great moments! All of them are very well drawn. If you're just looking for some romantic and cute oneshots with hot guys and happy, positive endings then this is a good read.

1/3 no Kareshi gets a 10 and one of my favorite one-shots of all time.
Uso to Koi no Hajimari is a 9 and decent for a re-read.
Suki ni Naru Made Matte is a 7.
Deatta Toki ni Boku wa Mou Inai a 5.

.. was what i was going to say until i read the third story, my 1/3 boyfriend! that was great~ don't want to give anything away but.. it was good. hehe. (i even re-read it again after i finished it lol, a rarity)

but the first two stories were just eh. veeeeery predictable i knew what was going to happen by like the third page. boo. although cute i guess, nothing worth discarding completely.

the last story was very unique, even though it was a bit predictable. very cute and funny.

although, smut.. ? i didn't really think there was that much.. i mean the nakedness, but nothing really happened x3

It was a really good one-shot. I liked the story along with the characters, blah blah blah, other review stuff. Look, He takes a picture of her underwear and blackmails her. If that sounds like something you'd want to read, go for it. If not, then quite wasting both our time and find something else.

When I first downloaded this manga I thought it was going to be a cute shoujo due to the cute cover picture and ambigious descripition,and though its got its bit it pretty much is a cute shoujo. The nature of the story was made painfully obvious within seconds of reading going through the usual plot scenarios but still its got a pretty stable plotline compared to most stories that follow the same path of the weak female character and the almost-evil male love interest, it is sort of a requirment for this type of story I suppose. Its good if your into that semi-naughty but not really sort of story and I would recommend it.

Nice romance, though nothing extraordinary. But since it's a bit of a forbidden love, or at least the atmosphere, I consider it a pretty good read.
