From Da Gurlz Translationz:

Because Yukino's mom is a housekeeper for the Renjo familiy, she has to suffer the pain of hearing her mom praise the family she takes care of. And this is why Yukino has been trying to beat Renjo Tamaki for most of her life, so her mom would care more about her than the Renjo family. But when her mom gets sick, and she has to take care of the Renjo family instead, her goals change a little.

Also contains the side story "Kira Kira Suruhimade" in the final volume.

Not anything exciting

The characters are better than typical shoujo with a rather strong-willed main female protagonist. The plot isn't so bad, but somehow it annoys me to no end. Every time someone was about to say something slightly important and started the sentence ("I...", "That...", "Actually...", "About that..."), some other characters would immediately butt in so things got entangled up until the chapter next to last. The coupling is quite predictable though. Overall it's alright, neither frustrating nor boring like the usual shoujo, but sure doesn't deserve any superlative adjective.

The plot was good and all and the art got better, by the end it was like the drawings of tokyo boys and girls (same author), which's art i like. I couldn't help being annoyed through all the 6 volumes, by volume 4 i was in physical pain and wanted to hit something so bad, so i justed skimmed the 2 remaining volumes and stopped on the important parts. The most important thing for me about this manga is how much i hated the characters all the time. i hated the mother for punishing her daughter for somthing that was absolutely NOT her fault, but she did it anyway because it made her ease her guilt. I hated all three Renjou's father, for having almost no regard for human feelings, he knew people were suffering, but chose to do whatever he wanted, he was utterly selfish, he chose to stay besaide Yukino's mother when that meant her suffering, just because to him she was a friend, with no regards of her feelings and didn't help her daughter neither did he help his sons, he just helps a bit at the end, just horrible. i basically hated all adults of this manga ta some point or another in diferent degrees. during all the manga i found the romance to be tedious as well, all characters were so undecisive al the freakin time!!! soooo anoying, just the last volume, regarding romance, did i like.

I mostly used the post to vent my anger against this manga, beware, the characters my be annoying, and the manga may lag in unimportant parts of the plot for way to long. It IS a good manga, but for some reason i hated it.

couldn't expect less from aihara sensei!
short but amazing plot. the part about kyouko's father wasn't really that important and was kinda confusing but everything else was realistic and wonderful.
each character had their own solid unique personalities and flaws and they all stood chance at winning kyouko. main lead was thank god, not weak but strong, and she's not dumb, nor is she flat chested (rare qualities of a shoujo lead.). all the guys were hot and cute. they all love her in their own way. but i guess you could've predicted that she wouldn;t have ended up with tamaki from the beginning.
wonderful read.

This wasn't so bad.. lol In the beginning the artwork was really bad and it almost made me want to give up, but I persevered!! And I like the story. But in truth the ending was predictable... Well the way it ended for Tamaki didn't quite go with my predictions, but I'm glad everyone was happy in the end.

It's not awful. There's nothing major that I can say things about. But, it's very blah. The art isn't good, although it gets better later on, and the characters are I have to say, pretty annoying. Yukino is smart, and supposedly 'strong-willed' but that's really not true. She wavers way too easily. And all the boys fall in love with her. Obviously. This IS a harem shoujo. The characters really didn't make me care about them. They weren't funny, sweet, sensitive, or even cute. Reading this manga really just made me... not feel anything. Besides boredom and slight irritation.

Art: First 2 volumes are okay but the drawing gets SOOOO much better later on to the point where even i noticed the improvement! Love the art

Story: Unique in some ways and i love how the story is well planned and not rushed! This manga also plays with your mind and tricks you but in a good and captivating way wink

Characters: Fell in love with all of them. Yukino is such a strong and amazing person as opposed to a typical dependent shoujo heroin. She's confident, strong willed, independent and honest. The guys are of course, good looking but they're all in their own ways, very caring
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ending: I loved it! I love how she ended up with Mito because you can tell that he really, truly loves her more than his brothers. Although it was pretty obvious from the start, the manga tricks you a little ;) haha.

I've had this on my manga list for a while and i finally decided to read it. WOW this manga was really good. Definitely recommend it! Don't give up because of the art in the first volume because i promise you, it gets a lot better.

So Good!

Having read all of Miki Aihara's completed works, I can definitely say this one is my favorite of them all. All of the characters are likable (or at least meant to be unlikable wink), the plot is engaging... and the three guys are all valid choices! I know Aihara likes a good love triangle (square? hexagon? wink), but sometimes some of the guys in those stories don't really come off as valid options for the heroine. She's just... clearly not suited for them. In this story, all three seem like valid partners for Kyouko to decide on. They each have positive and negative characteristics that make them charming and human, all at once.

The series does get a bit like a soap opera, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! I love that aspect of Aihara's works. She definitely knows how to kick the drama up a notch without resorting to the usual romantic cliches. It's a welcome thing to see the drama come from family issues and outside influences.

Definitely recommended for fans of Hot Gimmick and Miki Aihara's work in general smile And I'd recommend it to anyone unfamiliar with her work who would like something to try by her.

After a long time, i felt pretty good while reading a SHOJO manga,i usually quit half way while reading a shojo manga but SO BAD made me read it till the end. i could feel a strong spirit or a positive spirit from the female lead and i just love such female lead characters. And those three Renjo's were also pretty good and i just loved them all.

it started good......but...........
the main character sucks!!! big time. at first she was ok, she had real reasons to hate the guy, but then she meets him and falls in love with him, which would have been just fine if it took some more time. and she goes all ga-ga for him, and rejects the middle son, and well we all know the youngest doesn't stand a chance, but she still gets all jealous over the other she had already rejected, while being with the one she claims to love.
throughout the almost finished manga she just pisses me off so much!!!!!!!!!!

I really enjoyed this reverse harem manga, turned out to have way more depth than I was expecting. The main female is definitely Aihara's best one and a great female lead in general.

The boys are very cliche individuals at the beginning meeting your reverse harem stereotypes perfectly, which is fine. The dramaz I felt actually gave them more depth and flawed them, making them more than just their cliches. The development of the relationships were well paced, not rushed at all, each very suited to the types of relationships that Yukino had with each boy.

The plot itself isn't great, very mundane and typical, just a background to the developing relationships and an effort to complicate Yukino's relationships with the boys. The mystery in the story feels drawn out too long and made out to be way more than it really is (although I still don't know the whole story).

But overall I really look forward to reading the last 2 volumes.
