This story has many possible arcs it could follow, but it's so well written and drawn that I think it can be trusted to handle whichever one it chooses well. As in very many manga there is a transgressive element here, a kind of element which the Japanese seem very good at inserting in their stories. The girl is a teenager and the man appears to be in his late 30s or early '40s. What seems, so far, to draw them together is that they're both smart, or at least given to thinking their actions out carefully and thoroughly.

I like Japanese transgressive elements like we have in this manga! I've heard it said that the Japanese are so obedient to all social rules in their real lives that the intensely need a bit of transgression in their stories in order not to feel entirely smothered by convention. Whether that's true or not, the small transgression here opens out the story and makes it likely that what happens in it will not be standard fare.

I look forward to the development of this plot far more than most.

Refreshing Age-Gap

I'm a sucker for age-gap romance manga, so this story pulled me in from the start. It is about a teenage girl's crush on her much older boss, and although it's been done before, there is definitely something very unique about the two main characters and the story exposition. The art is beautiful as well and reminds me of 80s/90s manga!

Female lead: She's athletic and beautiful, sure. But, more than that she's inquisitive, strong-willed, and determined. She has a consistency about her that doesn't waver when something unexpected comes her way.

Although there is a short arc in one of the earlier chapters where she seems out of character. It's the part where her coworker blackmails her into going on a date with him, threatening to reveal her doodles about the boss. She gives in and goes. But she already told the boss her feelings by then!

Thankfully this arc was finished within a chapter!

Male lead: He's not handsome, wealthy, or extremely intelligent per se. But, that's what makes him so interesting. He's fairly average. And that's okay because more importantly he's passionate about a hobby, hard-working, and kind. Sometimes these traits can carry people much further in life than money or beauty.

Highly recommended for fans of romance and slice-of-life!

The story is basically about a young teenage girls first unrequited love. It very sweet and pretty heart warming at times.

Out of all the age gap romance I've read with and an old man and a really young girl I like this one the best. The pace is great not to fast not too slow. The plot isn't all over the place and gives good bits of the characters' history and personality here and there.The main heroine is a cool teenage beauty who is slightly depressed. She cares very little for others she's not close to or what others think or whats popular. She literally will not give the time or day to just anyone unless necessary. She pretty strong willed and straight forward especially when it comes to love which makes for very amusing scenes. The main love interest is actually just a typical normal person which is refreshing from the extreme/perverted personalities we normally see, its great he's not some potential pedophile as of yet. He is a klutzy but kind man who carries some baggage with him. What's great is that he clearly understands their situations and tries his best to approach it in the most appropriate way he can.

Great art, unique story, love the main character! Different from the typical shoujo fare. I usually can't stand romance manga cause they're all so tasteless and generic, but this is really a well done manga! Can't wait to read more!
