Frustration after completing the whole thing: It went from a 9 to an 8 to a 2  
by LienHoa
April 10th, 2023, 2:13am
Rating: 2.0  / 10.0
Update no.2: 1 day after completing the serie: GUYS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU SKIP LIKE CHAPTERS 124
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(where she went on a date with Shizuka after the fight)
TO 127 BECAUSE IT'S LITERALLY TRASH WRITING. I don't think the author was in her right mind writing that. Or maybe she has never been normal considering she didn't written off a character like Shizuka and kept buffing him with flowers, sparkles, back stories and "kyaa kyaa" girls who chase after him from ages. So
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Our girl Yuki basically cheats on Naruse
and ruins every tiny love i have for her and the manga. I read this the first time in my 9th grade and picked up the serie now that I'm 21, I reread the whole fking thing just to have this post manga frustration. I never liked to say hurtful thing especially to a Female Lead, but the author has to bring out the worst in Yuki's annoying behaviors. She was just being dumb, dense and oblivious and couldn't draw boundaries, reject people straightforwardly and keep distance herself from Shizuka and was giving Naruse (and readers) the ambiguous fear and insecurity of losing her the whole time. But now, she can't even do the bare minimum which is not
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to cheat
. I can't tolerate this. My heart is broken. I need the author to re write this character of Yuki and treat Naruse right. Moreover, homegirl also complains too much. TvT Tl;dr IF YOU GUYS DON'T WANNA HAVE THE POST MANGA FRUSTRATIONS LIKE ME, DON'T READ THE DRAMAS LAST 10 CHAPTERS, esp c.124.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there's also no real wedding, no children and no growing old together
but what was i expecting when the root basic problem (which is communication) is not even solved. This manga's ending left you with nothing but this lingering feeling of unsatisfaction because it ruined your nostalgic teen love for it. If you have a partner, pls treat them right. It would have been a lovely manga if Yuki loved Naruse better: giving him all her attention, appreciating him more, caring less about what other people think, making him feel safe, sayinf love affirmations to him more (look how happy Naruse is even with Yuki's small confirmations of love, which is a good progress from Yuki, if it's not for the latest chapters that ruined everything).

Update no.1 after completing the serie: GUYS, HEAR ME OUT. DON'T READ THIS. IT'S NOT WORTH IT. IT MAKES YOUR BLOOD BOIL.

Lemme make this clear. I totally loved this manga. I read this the first time in like 2013 and loved it so so much. I waited all day for a new chapter.

Today, 2023, i decided to pick it up again, as an adult... I reread the whole thing in 2 days and I was deeply disappointed.

This serie starts off so wonderfully. It has so much potential to be one of the best shoujos. When the author wants, she can give you all the feels in the world. I was so so so emotionally invested in the characters.

But somehow, fck, she chooses violence. The last like 10 chapters are the worst. Don't read them. I warn you.

THE WHOLE SHIZUKA SITUATION HAS BEEN IRKING ME SINCE IT STARTS, BUT 10 LAST CHAPTERS ARE THE WORST.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
An ex of Naruse appears, they fight, and somehow Yuki chooses to do something morally wrong in an already messed up situation: going out with Shizuka, get kissed again. She basically freaking cheats!


And you know what, it's not even the worst yet, the worst thing is: THEY ARE SO WISHY WASHY ABOUT SOLVING THIS PROBLEM, and it gives you a lingering unsatisfying feeling.

1. PROBLEMATIC CHARACTERS ✅
2. PROBLEMATIC CHARACTERS THAT SEEM TO HAVE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENTS BUT ACTUALLY NEVER DO ✅

I just want some lovey dovey content, yes, i kinda got them. I just want to see Shou and Yuki happy, get married, have kids, grow old toghether. I was tryna be patient reading this waiting for our couple's character development. But all i get is stupid, unnecessary drama i didn't ask for. The worse thing is, they're the same, repetitive shit: the Shizuka problem. And an anti-character development.

A bad serie is not a bad thing. A bad thing is something you liked
so much, emotionally invested into so much turned out like shit. I wish i didn't reread it. My nostalgic middle school love for this serie could have been in peace.

I think i would never read anything by this author again (i have completed like 5 series of hers).

First review: Đọc hồi lớp 9 mê hết nấc luôn, suốt ngày chỉ mong ra chap mới. Lên lớp 11 mình có đọc lai rai.🍻
Hôm qua đọc lại giữa chừng (cỡ chap 5 mấy) thì không thích dynamic giữa Naruse với Yuki lứm (Naruse thích gì làm nấy, không tôn trọng những gì Yuki nói); ước gì Yuki thành thật hơn; cảm thấy nam phụ hơi kì cục kẹo, suốt ngày bảo Shou phải làm thế này thế nọ. Mình cũng đã không thích cách tác giả viết mạch truyện cho lắm, cái pace ý, khúc sau truyện có nhiều kiểu slice of life và nhiều monologue quá nên hơi chán. Lúc sau lại cho thêm nguyên đống nhân vật phụ vào và lặp lại vòng lặp Naruse ghen tuông.

Nhưng mà, hôm nay đọc lại từ đầu thì thấy hai bạn ấy c, cũng cute: luôn hướng về nhao nè, luôn thể hiện tình củm dth lắm. Cho dù nhiều khi mình thấy Yuki làm Shou thất vọng bởi tính tsundere của bả thì sau đó Yuki luôn bù đắp lại bằng những hành động rất là Yuki. Cho dù tsuntsun thì Yuki vẫn cố gắng biểu lộ cảm xúc và nói ra suy nghĩ của mình, vậy nên đó là một điểm cộng. 2 bạn ý cũng communicate tốt mà.

Hmmm, và Naruse thích gì làm nấy thật (và đó là the whole point của manga luôn, tên Namaiki.. mà). Nhưng sau khi đọc lại đến tầm c 61, thấy Naruse nhiều khi láo láo zậy thui chứ vẫn tôn trọng Yuki mà nhỉ. (À mà mấy khúc tự nhiên nhào zô hun con gái người ta mình hong bênh được).

Nói chung đọc bộ này supply cơm tró đáp ứng đủ mà cấn thì cũng có nhiều chỗ cấn làm mình không relax + giải trí thoải mái được, vì cứ phải suy nghĩ đúng sai, ví dụ như giữa bạn nam phụ với Yuki nè. Yuki dense quá không hiểu nổi motive của nam phụ (điểm trừ bự), hong có chịu quyết đoán từ chối người ta, còn bạn Shizuka thì cứ sáp sáp lại bạn gái của bạn. Chán hết nước chấm, chán giùm Naruse luôn. Ròi lúc Shizuka tỏ tình tác giả vẽ cho hẳn khung to bự rồi cho ánh sáng lấp lánh các kiểu nữa chứ. Phải nói thật Shizuka là nam phụ mình... hong ưa nhất từ trước đến nay luôn; vì bạn cứ có mùi loser thế nào (huhu gay gắt quá sorry): người tốt mà không ra người tốt, cứ tiểu nhân lòng vòng. Và bây giờ cứ đến phân đoạn chơi bóng rổ nhiều chữ là mình bỏ qua, mình chỉ ngắm cách tác giả vẽ dáng thôi- mình ghét đọc mấy câu motivational sến sến lắm. Nhiều khi cờ ring không chịu được ý nhưng cũng có thể là do mình skim chăng?

Art thì xinh hết cỡ. Tác giả vẽ Naruse đẹp ơi là đẹp, bất cần đời, thích gì làm đó, nắm được spirit của character design lắm. Lâu lâu mình đã bị sự đẹp trai đó làm mờ mắt trước những hành động moral questionable của bạn ý (bây giờ nghĩ lại mình vẫn call out được): như là hành động hơi có mùi sexual harassment nè, hơi pushy nè (xem mấy tập đầu, đã là gì của nhao đâu mà thấy nhỏ là cứ hun chùn chụt, cho dù đã là gì đi nữa thì cũng đâu phải là được làm thế), hơi manipulative nè, kiểm soát nè ("chị không được thế này, chị không được thế kia"; "cười zới mấy thằng con zai khác": cái này chắc là fan service rồi, thôi tạm bỏ qua; nhưng còn vụ Yuki đi làm thêm: mình nhớ mang máng Shou cũng nói câu gì làm mình khíu chọ lắm). Vẽ nữ mình thấy hong đẹp bằng.
Đúng như jackalan nói, Naruse thì hơi pushy, trong khi Yuki lại là một cô gái confused, không multi task được, lâng lâng lâng lâng.

Re: greenmilktea: "he puts his desires over her health". Mình thấy greenmilktea nói rất đúng luôn: khi Naruse bị sốt, hắn vẫn nhào đến hôn và potentially lây bệnh cho Yuki; nhưng mà khi Yuki bị sốt, Naruse hun lên trán 🤡💀

I started this when I was a teen a finished it when I was an adult. I can't say the same stories that appealed to me then still appeal to me now.

It's a cliched read but fun if you're into expressionless capable leads. I do wish Yuki gained more confidence throughout the series but it's something lighthearted you can get into.

I rated this manga a 10 because I loved the series and would love to reread the entire thing as it’s now complete. However, there were times when the conflict was unresolved and the author didn’t do their best. BUT this is still such a great manga that I would reread time and time again because of the love and character development between the two characters. It even starts as shoujo and turns into slightly mature.

A dense, insecure, annoying, overthinking, anxious, selfish, shy and tsundere... She's got all the traits that match Sakura from Naruto.
If this manga had a tragic ending and she had di*d I would laughed so hard from happiness.

I stopped reading after a while, but definitely a good standard shoujo manga. I really enjoyed reading about a cool female lead, though the cool factor does decrease along the way. Also unfortunate, the story uses cliches to stretch the length. Would have been great if they kept it short and sweet, so I could reread and enjoy.

At the time of writing this the latest chapter is 123 and the manga has done a complete 180

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It started out as a typical problematic shoujo where the guy is aggressive then once the main characters start going out it becomes more about the main female character trying to get comfortable showing affection
I think the best parts are after the main female character starts college and the main couple gets some really cute moments
I love how the story expands and we get to see the main characters grow up / find their way through college with each other


There are times where I feel like the author struggles to come up with conflicts but I think they've done an amazing job and I've gotten so attached to the female lead
Overall I'm so glad I found this manga

Impressionable sexual predatory behaviors and abusive relationship  
by jackalan
September 23rd, 2020, 12:34am
Rating: N/A
My subject comes pretty strong. But it is what this manga is about: a predatory fantasy in a "sweet, romantic, high school love story" clothing with pushy male lead and push-over female lead. (PJ1 summed it up!)

I read this a couple (?) of years ago and dropped it. Today while looking at another title, this popped up in my feeds: the worst of it. The extra chapter where: even though the FL resisted physically AND verbally, the ML still jumped at her, forced his tongue down her throat, pressed her down, etc. The fan service was indeed "hot-and-steamy" and all-kind of imagining with explicit language like "come"/ejaculate (this is health science, so calm your horses). "Did they do it?" "What is happening?" I can just hear girls squealing out of the comment sections on various sites while my eyebrows furrowed... hard.

The hell is it going on with this manga? Shoujo is meant for young girls demographic. And this is just toxic! Then I remembered a bunch of older shoujos like Fushigi Yugi, Red River, Kaitou Jeanne, Peach Girl etc. Whoops.

I kind of get how a teenager's body and mind reacts and develops different from adults. Sale is important for the survival in business and contribution in the economy. But they should do better. We should do better. I am uncertain if Japan is very liberal or very objectifying and oppressive these days - it's always dangling between these fine lines. But I agree with milkgreentea, girls will get impressions out of these works. And this is not romantic. It is not love. If this was to happen in real world, in the US for instance, imagine the sensationalisation coming from the media reporting a high school/college rape case. And there will be more coming to light, more progress made. So these shoujo mangas'd better catch up with the current and really do more than just pretty art.

P/s: I don't say that I didn't enjoy this kind of fiction growing up. But now it's different because I can reflect on how impressionable they can be and how they can morph one's thinking and development. Sure, one can say something like "who cares" and overlook this. Still. Be better, do better! Write better leads so that we readers aren't just amused, but can actually learn something from.

Some people are saying that the FMC can't be honest with her feelings but that's what a tsundere is..😕 Ain't that the way tsuderes behave? BTW later on when the MC pushes her, she sometimes takes the lead and starts to get honest with her feelings... So pretty good and one of my favorite shoujo mangas... Totally recommended👍
