From Divine Sanctuary:

"If you don't want your 'secret' to be exposed, would you listen to my "wish"...?" Satsuki is both beautiful and smart, and she's popular in the whole academy, but actually, she has a "secret" that she can't tell anyone. One day, she witnessed her classmate, Okuno-kun, working part-time at a butler tea house. As a "bargaining point" to get Satsuki to keep quiet about this, he agreed to listen to her "wish", but then...?!

Also contains three other short stories:

Kimi no Suki na Hito (The Person That She Likes)

Omou, Clavier (Think Of You, Clavier)

Bijo wo Hirotte Sodatemasen ka? (Would You Like To Adopt And Raise A Beauty?)

The first story was kinda okay, shoujo and all. Not that bad.
The second...I skimmed through it cuz it got ridiculous.
The third wasn't long enough-too little background info, setting all over the place, timeline weird.
Fourth....skip it. Just skip it.

1st story: 7.1/10 - a bit of originality
2nd: 7.1/10 - rather typical, but not too bad
3rd: 6.3/10 - starting to REALLY lose meaning (unless you love student-teacher relationships)
4th: 4.2/10 - getting ridiculous and all over the place

As my rating shows, read the first two stories and skip the last one is what I recommend.

first of all i have two things that i noticed: first, the characters were very interesting, and second, mayeb the first one is kind of related on the fact that they are more or less have a homosexual side to them..

Himitsu no Shitsuji- the old blackmailing is pulling us together.. old but the characters are cute
Spoiler (highlight to view)
a butler and a wannabe mangaka
and i thought that it was some sort of real nasty secret.

The Person that She Likes- yep, enter gay-liike guy here and some cute rival and ordinary girl plus dramatic bullying.. and you got yourself a story. shoujo loving girls arent that hard to please.. in fact i think that this one's especially sweet!~!

I Think of you Clavier- though i still have some bits of trauma from the piano bit of the story, i might say that its hecka cute, but the love kindda came from nowhere but maybe its just my biased opinion because i used to have a real hot piano teacher and i cant concentrate but i was too young back then to actually think like the heroine.

Would you like to Adopt and raise a Beauty?- i was kindda confused at first whether the guy is gay or straight. it was a bit weird seems like girls like gay guys.. hmm.. i have a lot of slightly gay friends so it make me uncomfortable..

third thing that ive noticed: even though the stories arent really comedy.. it makes me wanna giggle and laugh.. smile which i assume is nice smile

the feel was very refreshing, and i thought the stories all had a very unique element to it. each one of them~! sure there was cliches, but there were also elements that made them stand out from other typical stories. that's what i liked. :]

not terribly memorable, but then again 99% of oneshots are, so i wouldn't include that as a huge weighted factor. read! it's a nice, short, enjoyable read, and the stories made me smile.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i especially liked the element in the second, about the effeminate guy. that was good~! not at all like other stories' main character. and the main girl drawing manga. veryyy refreshing

oh, and the art imo was pretty. .. as you can see from the cover, lol

Initially I wanted to give this manga a 6, but after reading the first and third story, I feel that it deserves a 7.

Himitsu no Shitsuji-kun: Compared to the other stories, this story is surprisingly good- good drawing + storyline. It was also sweet but not too over. However, it does not leave a deep impression (after the second story, I was like : umm.. what was the first story?)

The Person That She Likes: I thought i'll stop reading this manga after I read this story. That's how bad it is, although the characters are nicely drawn , the story .. that's another story altogether. Maybe it's just me who didn't like it.

I Think Of You, Clavier: Sweet, but extremely predictable. The teacher and student were cute in their way, and I would say it was a rather nice read.

Would you like to adopt and raise a beauty?: Terrible for me. Perhaps I'm not a fan of cross dressing guys, but how come I enjoyed charming junkie? The drawing makes me think if the story is drawn by the same artist. Storyline was confusing and had no link. I do not understand anything from this manga.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
What? Hairdresser dress up hair for girl > Girl v happy > Girl found hairdresser crossdressing > hairdresser claims he had been abused by a guy (wtf is this?) > Girl happily takes in hairdresser > Girl found out hairdresser was a guy > Girl still accept hairdresser > Girl goes on date > hairdresser dress her up > hairdresser leaving > ??????? > hairdresser ?? x Girl ??

The whole story do not show any distinct/ hidden feelings the girl had for the hairdresser, or the hairdresser had for the girl. They just some sorta - came to love each otherconfused wtf.

Overall, don't read this manga unless you're really feeling bored and got nothing else to read. - - . I'm sorry for being so mean on this manga , but a 7 is really the best this manga could go..

Four oneshots; short, sweet, and very, very cute. Despite my low expectations, I found myself pleasantly surprised at how satisfying these stories were. None of them break any new shoujo ground, but they're perfect for readers who're looking for something light and enjoyable. No brain use required; simple and fluffy! The lovely art is a bonus.

Himitsu no Shitsuji-kun: My favourite out of the four. The art is best here, with both the male and female leads drawn very nicely and consistently. The story is cute, and Okuno's own admission of his little "secret" is timely and brings the "Aww!" reactions. Typical plot of the heroine falling for the hero through a little "blackmail", but done well without angst.

The Person That She Likes: The mangaka obviously draws girls better than she does guys, because Maaya looks far better than the two boys. Those who're sick of love triangles with the girl being bullied for going out with the male idol of the school might be turned off by this one, but the ending was sweet. Good to see the heroine not going for the hot one!

I Think Of You, Clavier: I'm a sucker for stories about music, so I loved this one. The relationship between the two was adorable, but suffered from being crunched into a tiny oneshot. Their development was severely minimalized, to the point where it seems to jump from the heroine's initial hate to a kind of camaraderie, and then to love. The last two pages came out of the blue as well, making very little sense how he came back from overseas or worked out her feelings. Enjoyable all the same if you don't think too much.

Would you like to adopt and raise a beauty?: This one ranks fourth for me, because it made absolutely no sense, and the art wasn't very consistent. It was never explained why the hairstylist crossdressed, nor did it explain where the lovey doveyness came from.

this is a series of sweet one-shots...The art is pretty...for me, the mangaka drew girls better than the boys^^but the boys still look good
Himitsu no suji-kun: The story is interesting with Okuno(the main guy) is really looking like a prince when he tied his hair
The Person That She Likes: aah~ a love triangle...what else can I say besides it's very heart wrenching xD and I just can't help but wonder...don't they have a more creative idea on how to bully someone lol
I Think of You, Clavier yatta!! about music~ piano...A girl who loves playing the piano and want to become a pro but the private tutor who teaches her is...?!?
Spoiler (highlight to view)
