It should have finished ages ago, but it went on for too long. It started as a romcom, then the comedy went out of the story somewhere along the line and the romance most of the time was thin to say the least. It would have been more bearable if it was much shorter. Having umpteen almost confession failures is annoying.

To those who say it is realistic, what kinda of school life did you have? You would be hard pressed to find another manga with so many misunderstandings in while trying to tell someone you liked them.

The quality (drama) picked up towards the end and that's why the score is higher than had it stayed the same.

if you are sick and tired of your regular cliche shoujos, this is definitely a must read. as a reviewer mentioned before me, it has EVERYTHING. it has couples of all different stages of relationships and romantic stages. i found some of their issues so completely relatable and understandable.

idk how the author does it but he does an amazing job fleshing out and developing each of these characters even though the cast is HUGE. each of these characters fall off the page and become so real life that you start to care for them, and when they're sad you can't help but feel it too.

A magical combination of awkward but realistic situations, completely off the wall humor at times, and actual romantic development. There's more than a little romance here that stays at the will they/won't they stage, but there's more than a little that DON'T, and in fact start going out. It's incredible! Large series with a large cast and lots to love. Lauded at length in review.

It has tons of couples all at different stages of their relationships and romantic stages. There's unrequited love, new couples, those still trying to become a couple, etc. It almost contains all romantic plots you can find in the typical romance manga while being hilarious at the same time! Since it's a 4-koma, it focuses on one couple each chapter and switches to a different one in the next. But it also develops and fleshes out the characters slowly through this method as some pairs are still at the same stage they were ten chapters ago. It's amazing how the author keeps track of all these students as there's a HUGE cast of characters, and if you don't like one couple, you can easily move onwards and follow the pairs you do like. They all have different personalities and some situations can be so incredibly cringey BUT hilarious(such as a certain masked individual or another "hero" who can sweep away the hearts of cats)!
If you're tired of the annoying, no development romance manga read this for the freshest breath of air that can reignite your love for romance stories.
