good but way to long

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.

It's grown overtime

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

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.

Amazing series but it’s already chapter 165. Does anybody know how much longer the author is planning to keep this up?

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👍

Vapid and boring

Pushy and sexual harassing male lead.

Tsundere heroine who melts every time he touches her.

Pushy and sexual harassing second lead who the dumb heroine continues to allow to hug, kiss and flirt with her.

The same cycle over and over. Very boring and repetitive. Slow with no real plot (and it isn't a fun "slice of life" vibe either). Looking at the rating, I'll add overrated.

It's weird!

Picked this up after L_DK, thought it was similar with 2 main leads. Oh boy! They are nothing alike! Just finished chapter 33, when they finally agree to say the L word. How do I feel? Totally baffled, this manga is so weird. The FMC talked to herself too much, 70-80% of the manga up to this point is she talk to herself! I feel this acceptance of going out is somewhat unearned. The MC doesn't do much to earn that much love from FMC, he borders sexual harassment and has super predatory behavior upon an inexperienced, confused female lead. MC is not even nice to people around him. Will try to read the rest of the chapter but up till now, the set-up for this manga has been totally unconvincing to me.

Up to chapter 48 now. This is probably the most slow-burn manga I've ever read! The first 8 volumes have incredibly slow pacing. I have a feeling this is a masochistic manga that full of monologues by the female MC! If it's not for the art style, I would have dropped this manga already. Hopefully, it gets more interesting from volume 9 on.

Good but the MC is annoying

Everyone is complaining about Naruse and I get it like, I wouldn't like him that much if he weren't cute, but my main complaint is the MC. She is very annoying, especially when they started to date. She can't even be honest with him, she always wondered why he can't trust her, yeah its because you can't be truthful with him and say whats on your mind or when he actually does something nice for you (for once) you won't even thank him just push him away and then make up for it in a stupid way. Also she's extremely ignorant when it comes to friendships and relationships, the only good role she can play is a big sister. Overall the plot is pretty decent, the art is well done and the translations are as well good but if youre looking for non aggravating characters this isn't the story for you.

I can't understand why the other readers don't like this. This is a very great manga and I can assure you that. The male lead is not as horrible as everyone thinks he is. It gets pretty interesting after they start going out. It gets better as chapters go by. This is one of my fav shoujo manga after Kaichou wa maid-sama. The male lead truly loves her and is not selfish like some people think he is.
