I saw the bad reviews, but then I thought 'what the heck, smut is smut' and started reading it... But seriously, the plot is so boring and the art isn't great so it couldn't sustain me to go on... it is a waste of time!

Well this is...shit. That's all there is to it. It's so fucking bad that I'm too embarrassed to have it in any of my lists - not even worth the read as a time-waster. All those who read this should do so either for whatever slivers of comedy can be found from reading such a pathetic, failed attempt at a real plot and dialogue, or so as to experience just how monumentally crap this manga (I hate to consider that this was actually published as one) truly is.
I have personally always considered this mangaka to be the embodiment of FAIL, having unfortunately come across several of her other works - some of which are, even more unfortunately, considered popular for reasons I will never understand. However, imo this has to be the worst...since I cant imagine how any series could be worse.
Not even worth the rating, but since I'm feeling generous 1/10 (which fyi is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than it deserves).

NB/ This is, so far, the only rare exception to my MU rules whereby I not only believe that the lowest possible rating is justified but that any higher ratings have been provided by individuals who are retarded due to heavy inbreeding and/or those who themselves dream of being raped repeatedly on several different occasions and of only having relationships with people who treat them as though they are nothing more than mere cumbuckets.

I'm still reading though, for the 'smut' only. The story is crap. The art is less than average. Though the sexual situations are not as explicit, this is no better than hentai. I know it isn't hentai, but it's more hentai than shoujo!
Geez why is it categorized as 'shoujo', when this title isn't meant for young girls? It isn't worth being called 'josei' either lol... this is just "pure smut"+really messed up stuff

I'm gonna continue reading only to kill myself later, ja

The boyfriend:
Makes his girlfriend his "toy"
Acts like it's his right to punish her sexually when she's made him mad
Suspects everything with a dick of wanting to fuck his girlfriend
Doesn't listen to his girlfriend when she tells him he's hurting her

The girlfriend:
Acts like it's her boyfriend's right to sexually abuse her when she's made him mad
Acts like it's fine that he called her his "toy"
Considers herself a bad person when she "allows" anyone other than her boyfriend to rape her
Is raped practically every other chapter
Thinks that her boyfriend always knows best, so if he criticizes her, it's her fault for not living up to his standards
Thinks that when her boyfriend actually does listen to her when she tells him to stop (which is almost never), he's the kindest guy in the world
Apologizes for being so selfish when, (and this happens rarely), she's actually the one to ask him to give her a hand job, rather than him forcing himself on her

The plot:
Sex, rape, rape, rape, sex, rape, oral sex, rape rape, make up sex, rape
You get the idea. When the main character isn't being raped, the manga is made up of painfully obvious dialogue and plotlines. It's so bad, it makes me want to kill someone. namely, whatever pervert wrote this crap.

The main character is in a horrible situation; she's basically stuck between being raped by her boyfriend or being raped by strangers. And apparently if it's her boyfriend then that makes it okay or something. It's just so sick. I mean, the boyfriend is treated as some sort of hero or something, when in reality he's just a controlling rapist.

This is just a sick sick manga that mocks these types of situations. Lots of people are raped and abused by their partners, and this acts like that isn't even a serious issue. It's a disgrace. It's people who read and enjoy these types of manga that grow up to be like the boyfriend in this story.

Everything else
Enough with my ranting. Besides the obvious stuff that's wrong with this manga, the characters are also extremely limited and there is no character development. Plus the whole manga revolves around the main characters' relationship: it's like they have no lives outside of each other, which is so sad, not to mention boring.

Plus the art is just bad. It might not look that bad from the picture shown above, but believe me, it's a lot worse than it appears.

If I could, I'd rate this manga 0/10

And by the way, why do so many guys want to rape Seri (the girlfriend)? She's not even supposed to be that pretty or smart or anything. And yet I'm pretty sure she should be in the Guinness Book Of World Records for the number of times she got raped freshman year . . .

Edit: I'd just like to add something. In what crazy world does this manga count as a comedy?

I've read a bit of smut... and this one was different. Like many others who have commented, this has a really shallow and repetitive story line. This manga focuses on a lot of non-consensual sexual situations (think extreme sexual harassment / fingering / rape). I wound up reading up to the 5th volume, but I stopped... too much rape... same storyline... just different men. I pity the girl... if a real girl went through all of this, I'd expect her to frequent her OB-GYN because this is definitely not healthy.

When I go and read a manga or any story it is usually for entertainment. I personally like stories that are rather uplifting but I do not mind conflict. The main problem that this story has apart from the abusive craps for the male characters is the way there is no constancy in the actions of the characters with reality. I hate paradise kiss for that very same reason.

I can usually take smut but the genre is way overfilled with abusive morons who get the girl in the end. Rape and abuse, certainly not much to recommend in this manga.

I read this through to the end, because I like Kanan Minami's work and because I tend to finish most series I start. There's very few that I stop reading, but this one... Wow.

I like shoujo - even the trashy melodramatic smutty stuff. I like Kanan Minami's work, so you know I knew what I was signing up for. So this isn't coming from someone with a bias against shoujo or someone who can't enjoy a good old smutfest.

But this... is something else entirely. This is 8 volumes of sex, with some really transparent plot devices thrown in at times to break up the monotony. And it IS monotonous. It feels like the same sex scene over and over and over... and over... and over... again. If you never thought sex could be boring, it's because you haven't read this manga yet.

In addition to this, there's no real plot. The eight volumes consist of the main couple having sex and having obstacles thrown in their way. Unfortunately, these obstacles are as varied and exciting as the sex scenes are - that is to say, they're the SAME plot twists/obstacles thrown in over and over and over... and over... and over... again.

All of that said, the plot obstacle that keeps being presented is really bad. Now, I admit that I like the occasional rape plot. If it's done well, it can be an interesting part of a story. This, however, is just a girl who gets sexually assaulted in some way by every single man who crosses her path. And I mean every. single. one. So you add THAT to the formula above and... Yeah. It's THAT bad, people.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, to be honest. Even fans of Kanan Minami's work should steer clear. If you're a completist like me, who likes to read all of a mangaka's work, then I suppose it can't be helped... but at least go into it knowing what to expect.

Now, the one-shot side stories are a different subject. There's some good stuff in those. "Virgin Beast" is a cute story with a lot of humor in the first couple pages (that declaration in the school hallway is classic). "Scarred Innocence" is a darker story that keeps you guessing and manages to be charming, despite the darkness running under the surface. "Rescued Letter, Complicated Love" isn't the best, but it's worth a quick read. The male lead wears on your patience pretty quickly, but he kind of grows on you at the same time. "Ribbon" is a really cute little story about childhood friends who reunite with more than friendship brewing.

Bottom Line: Download it for the one-shots. Forget the rest.

I'd just like to say that I don't believe that SMUT = DUMBASSES. People keep saying "It's this, this, and this. So you should know better." But this particular manga is not inclusive of the entire genre. Sorry, but it's just not. Because I've read plenty of smut in both English and mainly Japanese that doesn't consist of rape, a dumb heroine (Seri's not that bright...), and has traces of an actual plot. "Traces" being the operative word here...

Much like jptranslator_girl said, summaries can be misleading. And plenty of smut series' start off one way, then goes off into a completely different direction less than halfway through smile . Some suck and some don't. Not all smut is the same.

I'm not downing the people who liked this manga, because your taste is your own and you have your reasons for liking what you like. Honestly, I really would recommend giving this series a try. You might like it, but then again you might not. I love reading smut, and obviously sex doesn't bother me, but I didn't like this at all; for various reasons....which have all been stated by various users.

This series is chalk full of non-consensual sex between the "heroine" and some random guy, and then make up sex between the "heroine" and her actual boyfriend almost immediately afterwards. It's pretty silly, redundant, and repetitive. So many people had their hands on this chick that it was just ridiculous.

P.S. This probably isn't even worth mentioning, but I've only seen this much rape and/or attempted rape in hentai. Scary, I know.

My true rating would be a 0 / 10.0, if possible.
