Cute and fluffy manga   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

It's a cute fluffy manga, with some minor/light misunderstandings as plot devices.

In chapter 1, the two mc likes each other but can't because they'll become step sibling. However, that's one seriously flawed logic. Step-siblings are not considered incest so I see no reason why both MCs can't progress as a couple. Does the author think it's readers are stupid? Maybe it's a Japanese thing that step-siblings are tabooed from being romantic with each other? If you can overlook this, you'll enjoy this fluffy shoujo.

The manga was designed to be to short and yet captivate you. If your into the romance genre, then you will like this manga as it is specifically designed for romance and you will enjoy the read.

This is semi popular but I don't really get why. It's a typical run of the mill Japanese love comedy where they fight like cats and dogs the whole way through. I didn't like the ending and and I was never really sure if it's more than a one sided love. If Pastel is really similar to this, then I would rather shoot myself in the head before reading 35 volumes of something like this.

Nice Shounen Romance Manga

This is a simple straightforward shounen romance manga. It's got the love triangle/s, misunderstandings, and the like. It is a bit lacking in the characters department, as there's really only about 5 characters that get a decent amount of page time. I would say the short length of the manga is a strength, as the story isn't diluted down with a TON of meaningless conflict that prevents the MC from getting together/progressing in their relationship. I also really liked the soft art style.

Rating: 4 of 5
If you're looking for a shounen romance manga that actually has some resolution pick this up.

Nothing Special

This manga is any other cliche romance manga. There isn't anything special about it but at least the story doesn't drag on for many chapters. The only thing I liked about this manga is that there's not much chapters so you can finish it in day if you want.

Overall it's just another cliche manga. I like that I finished this manga because I'm the kind of guy that wants to read all the manga's possible so I love the feeling of finishing a manga and putting it on my completed list.

Its simple but realy entertaining. I prefer this more then Pastel. Probably becouse the story is kept short and simple. Good characters and the main characters feelings are consistent with his actions. I like that becouse to often you read mangas where characters feelings and actions dont match. I like strong characters to. And the two main characters are strong.

I like the end.

Just got done reading the disappointment of a manga IO and this was absolutely wonderful to work as a pick up. Sincere, honest, and so worth reading. If every manga had this level of quality, The plot was simple, but the artwork more than made up for it. I like the restraint the girl showed, that is something you don't see in similar manga. Definitely going to look into Pastel after reading Parallel, I've heard that pastel is even better, I hope that is true. 9/10 I don't rate short manga 10/10, there isn't enough complexity, so 9/10 is the best a short manga can get from me. Brilliant. Definitely read it.

Sevodax, I agree with you about the guy before you.

Not what i was a bad way

This manga was not what i was hoping for. It says it's a comedy but really it just keeps a light hearted atmosphere, i don't think i actually laughed once. The actions of the older sister made no sense to me as well. The same with Aihara, after a while. I have a couple of qualms about the female lead's actions too, but to explain them would be to giver spoilers away, and just because I didn't really enjoy this manga doesn't make doing that okay.

In short, i don't think this is the type of manga you should put on your reading list. It's what you'd grab if you were completely bored, and even then you could do tonnes of other sleep.

This manga contains nothing but cliche, but that was what I was looking for. Sometimes authors try to hard to come up with plot twists that are sometimes nonsensical that ruins a good story. But, in this case, the author kept it simple.

The length is just right, and each character is likable. I did not feel that the ending was rushed, and was satisfying.

I really enjoyed reading this manga, too bad it was so short...I really wanted more, but I guess I`ll read Pastel next(made by the same mangaka) which, if I`m not mistaken, has a similar story! ^_^
I won`t give a review since there are already more than enough written before me!

And for the guy before me: Please, before making a comment/review/etc, learn to write!
