Nitta Arata is a typical 21 year-old junior attending college of science and engineering at Toaru University. He is bright, he's in the engineering program after all, but he definitely is from a working class background. He has been working his way through college for the past 3 years without major incident, so being swept up in a warped experiment of an equally warped professor was the last thing he expected in the second half of his college days.

One day, Arata received a letter asking him to meet someone whose initials were "N.H." at a relatively secluded location on campus. The letter looked suspiciously like a "love letter", but Arata had his doubts. More likely it was a cruel practical joke perpetrated by one of his buddies, especially when the initials matched those belonging to "Nogi Hatsune", also know as "Miss Engineer", the reigning heartthrob of the engineering department. Why would somebody like her be interested in a nobody like himself? The short answer was that she would not be interested, but why take the chance of missing out? So there was Arata, in ultra-cynical mode, waiting at the appointed location when he was suddenly grabbed from behind! His last thoughts as world turned to black was that the gloved hands covering his mouth and nose reeked of ether...

At first, I thought it was a good comedy. Then, I found that the story went absolutely nowhere, and the romance was very poorly developed. The ending was horrible. You get a few kicks from the comedy, but that's about it. The chapters are extremely short too. I expected too much.

It was better then I thought, but still not great. Like many others mentioned it was a fairly straightforward plot, which comes with it pros and cons. You won't remember this story far in the future, but it was fun and easy to read while it lasted.

This manga has a weak plot to say the least, totally predictable and felt more like random ideas where just being tossed around all throughout the story. I found that the initial idea was pretty unique, two people put in that situation, what would they do and how would they end up. Unfortunately the mangaka did not exploit all the benefits behind this idea and I felt that it was kinda wasted on simple humouristic situations and complete lack of any twist. The romance was also lacking, two people in their situation I would have expected to see romance growing between the two leads and maybe even throw in some ecchi situations. Unfortunately, that was not the case. In the end, the manga has no real plot and lacking in romance and the comedy was average at best. I gave it a rating of 7 just because it was interesting enough to keep me entertained for a few hours.

As others have pointed out, you're not getting more than an average romantic comedy with this one. The plot is fairly straightforward and predictable, and the characters pretty one-dimensional. Also, the artwork isn't horrible, but it isn't great either; strictly average at best.

Even with all this though, when all was said and done I still had fun with it. The simpleness of everything really means you can cruise through this without overloading your brain, and although the end comes quick (too quick in my book), it's still fairly satisfying and gives a decent close to the series.

Recommended for fans of the genre who have a few hours to waste.

Simple -almost primitive- but good

The low quality art almost pushed me away from this series; the story is simple, the events are simple, heck even the secondary characters are one-dimensional. Now that I've finished it, I can say that I can't regret reading it.

Recommended for those who are lacking anything interesting to read.

it was doing ok but then it just ends. yeah just suddenly over. Feel like that the author decided not to continue the series over night and so he/she made up a short, rather meaningless ending.

I found this manga pretty good... The story is kind of lame, but it was necessary to force that kind of situation the manga is about.
The art is ok and it's not boring reading it, so yea, pretty good.
