Somebody else's fantasy

I've read up to volume 6 so I don't know if he changes later, but as of now...if he wasn't considered handsome, I seriously doubt the commenters below would still pardon his behaviour and fangirl all over him.

Why I dislike his character:

Not humble - (the girl even states it outright; he's arrogant and self-indulgent). Let me ask you: if it's not because of his appearance, would you really like this kind of guy?

Selfish - does what he wants (like forceful kissing, or embarrassing her because, for his own amusement, he likes seeing her flustered), and KISSING HER WHEN HE HAS A FEVER.

Awful -he hits the guy she likes out of jealousy - the poor innocent guy (because she never confessed to the guy or showed her feelings, so how would that other guy know?)

(This last one will have overlapping examples)
Forceful - such as kissing (esp. When she doesn't expect it or want it - even when she doesn't like him yet and when he didn't even confess yet!!!), and also dragging her somewhere. Look, even if it's to cheer her up, there's a limit - don't drag her to a closeted room and then forcefully kiss her! If their relationship really continues (i.e. marriage) these kinds of behaviour is what often leads to domestic violence. I understand that this kind of thing is fan service, but by doing so, the author is conveying an underlying message that force is alright since he "loves" her. Even though the manga doesn't state it outright, it is encouraging unhealthy ideas like "he does that because he likes you." In reality, that kind of reasoning is very untrue - if he truly loves her, would he kiss her - forcefully - even though he has a FEVER? That's basically demonstrating that he puts his desires over her health.

You might be thinking, "this is just a manga, why get so worked up over it?" That may be true, but what we read WILL unconsciously affect the way we think. If we immerse ourselves with stories portraying such unhealthy relationships as healthy, it would gradually become natural for us to think that such actions and behaviour is alright, that it's normal, and that it means he loves you - and that cannot be further from the truth. He may love you - but how much? Obviously not enough to put you before himself. A love that's self-seeking and self-gratifying.

Fortunately, the girl knows this before falling in love with him, so at least she's aware...not that it does her any good in the long run since she still falls in love with this arrogant jerk.

This manga indeed represents society's concept of love these days, especially in shoujo. More and more often, love that is selfish is now considered as romantic and acceptable, just because he does a few nice and sweet things for the girl and the author made him look cool and suave.
Real love is unselfish. This manga does not portray that - at least, definitely not the guy.

Upon my first reading of this manga, actually, I didn't really like it. There's some categories I didn't like (but I have tolerated it, and I rather like it now). The part when male lead was really aggressive toward female lead is disturbing actually (imo), like kissing when the feeling wasn't mutual etc. That seems sexual harassment, no matter how handsome he is. Though I should not taken it seriously, because it's a manga, it's for fun reading.
But then, I continued reading till the last chapter available in english, I can't stop wishing there's another release for next day. After the main main couple become canon, it's been fun to read. And I really hope this manga can hold till 100++ vols (if I'm not getting bored by then).

The characters are very drawn well. Even though female lead was seen as stoic girl at first, she's becoming more expressive. The only one who isn't really expressive since beginning is male lead. Seriously, he only has one expression throughout the volumes (I exagerrated it). The rest characters aren't important, they're there for the sake of storyline, after it's done they'll gone. You can see it from the volume covers of this manga. All of them is a potrait of two main lead (naruse and yuki).

I can understand what other commentators have said about the protagonist not being decisive, but I found that really rang honest with the uncertainty a lot of girls feel in relationship and romance matters. Furthermore, I appreciated how the characters actually change and develop through this manga. I would say that in the majority of shoujo stories I've read (many of which I've still enjoyed) characters don't change in their personalities or goals from the first page to the last. Either that, or the development feels unrealistic. :\ Like you'd never see those transformations happen to such people in real life, you know?! But yep. In Namaikizakari, not only did I get plenty of "kyaaa!!" moments, but sincerely appreciated the character development in the two protagonists a lot.

I mean, it was cute at first how she resists him but come on, you already confessed and such how selfish can you get? Like if you can't commit and be seriously involved with him then reject him at once - plain and simple.

She just became really really irritating with her one step forward three steps back and her indecision as the story progresses that it got on my nerves.

I usually like these types of stories (i.e. maid sama), but seriously after coming this far and with this amount of chapters, I just got annoyed with the progress of the love story.

I mean it was good, but yeah, I'm not gonna continue with it anymore sad

Stubborn female leads are good but I hate it when they do nothing but avoid a guy stalking you for 31 chapters. Seriously, enough is enough. You either go out with him or you don't.

I think this puppy love manga is so cute! It has potential. I love how he declares his love in the first chapter. I'm tired of shoujo mangas with main characters taking 20 chapters to confess their love...NO! No Bueno. Those mangas give you unnecessary heart break

This guy has HOT pheromonal action oozing in every panel. He's like the male MC from Stroke Material plus Kaichou wa maid sama (as a LOT of tsukkomus will tell you) and Kei from Special A. Meaning he is besotted but collected but devious yet charming still a little bit rakish and.... Ohh I could go on!

And the heroine is very fun as well. Very kuudere, very collected, very committed to staying collected at all times too.. and when someone comes along and tries to drive her up the wall... well you can see her reaction in the cover art can you not!

Superbly paced school-life romance to enjoy with an occasional sprinkling of over the top humor which keeps you hooked.

Argh! I'm at chapter 18 (with mangalator) and tbh I can't believe the audacious (and panty droppingly hot) things he does considering they haven't started "Dating" yet.

I'm just going to use another commentor's words here, since her description was perfect.

"This is shoujo. And not your Typical -- 'HEY IM IN LOVE WITH A JERK AND IM A HAPPY GIRL' Shoujo. It's the -- 'HOLY CRAP WHY IS THIS GUY TOUCHING ME. HELP' kind of shoujo...
Reminds me of Kaichou wa Maid sama. smile

Heroine isn't a push over crybaby. She's a girl with a temper she can hold to most people. Then here comes a cannon ball, shooting her down and pushing down her barrier. Instead of the girl being crazy for the guy who manages to see her inner self and be okay with it, Yuki doesn't even give two sh*ts to someone like Naruse. It's like a soldier defending a wall; They don't stop shooting even if their defenses are down, until you are dead on the ground. I mean, she has a crush, and here comes this guy who groped her and kissed her, and now confessing he likes her. She didn't blush and say 'TAKE ME SENPAI'. She says 'OH GOD' with a dreadful stare. I mean, what's better than THAT?" --Mangahere. com comment

So far you have a cool female lead who, is well, as the tags says. She's not cold per, se, but more rational, kinda like the main girl (forgot her name- Shizuku?) from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. The male lead is your typical arrogant-ish guy who seems to see right through her. For once, you also see a female lead that says
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"oh gosh/[crap]" when he confesses to her!

This has potential, I just hope she doesn't lose too much of her coldness as the story progresses or starting to get the blushy thing like many shoujo gals that were awesome before, but have resulted to.
