This one was defiantly a cute one. The relationship was slow but a good slow. I would have liked yo see his grandfather accepting them, but hey you never know, it might have happened later in their lives.

i was sad to see this one end! even with the cliches, and the idiot characters, i liked it for some reason... there were generally unresolved things, even the author admitted that she just didn't want to draw any more... haha... oh well.

there were a couple missing elements, and looking back it's not perfect, but it's a pretty good read.

poor teppei! he's a good friend though... kinda.. he didn't do anything with his jealousy really though :p (stupid characters!) plus the back and forth misunderstandings between naoto and her were irksome. seeeeriously. and the comment that mogiks mentioned was stupid too. really rieko?! naoto?! at least get that cleared up! don't just forget he "raped" you! although honestly i think the author forgot too hahaha

in general i liked the heroine though. and the art. solid 8/10

First off, I liked the artwork sooo much better than the earlier works. Big improvement! (Loved Hot Gimmick btw) The story wasn't so bad but I guess a little predictable.. too bad there wasn't much of a change for Teppie, though smh I just wished the ending showed a little bit of what might have happened in the future. But it was an ok read.

The only reason I wouldn't rate it higher is because of the art, but the plot is interesting. While it's probably not the most original thing you've ever seen (though what is), the plot simply draws you in, and you find yourself rooting for certain characters along the way. The female lead is not just a school idol, but a smart girl with her heart in the right place. Also, she is spirited, but not overly so, nor is she overly righteous (which can often be annoying). The male lead may not seem original, but the character development is so subtle that it can be easily missed (while the development within the main character is much more obvious). It's light-hearted comedy at times, while being dramatic when the situation calls for it. And it does have a lot of messages, though they don't really jump out at you unless you look for them. All in all, I'd try it.
It may not be for everyone, but please remember. How a reader views/interprets a manga is often a reflection of the reader herself. smile

Personally, I think this is one of the better and more unique shoujos I've read. 1st, the girl is strong and not the typical crybaby who can't do anything, and 2nd,

I don't think she ends up with her childhood friend, which can be said for most romance.

Good art and a great light romance read, I definitely recommend it!
