Personally, I found it very cute.
I mean, it's quite rare that the shoujo heroine is a tsundere and a child prodigy at the same time. xD
I also like how she's kinda socially awkward, but tries her best to everything in the right orderly way.

I think the dialogue and story is just fine too, with even some wacky scenarios thrown in sometimes for good fun.

Overall, pretty good read if you like relationships between a cold genius tsundere and her teacher. wink

Uni was definitely someone I really enjoyed reading about initially cause she was somewhat tsundere but now she's become a crybaby and it's begining to bother me. I hope she stops that and grows a frontal lobe already. As for the rest of the story, I'll just keep reading and hope for the best.

it may be a shoujo but its a shoujo Done right.
I dunno what the people below me problem is but damn. The series is adorable, uni is cute, the teacher guy is cliche works. I love the subtly in it also. The fact that Uni writes her name on everything she owns seemed irrevelant and then how the mangaka made it a part of the story when Uni wrote her name on his forehead as a way to say "Your mine!"
Im a sucker for stories that i cant predict. smile that and all the crazy Uni and her family reminds me of Kare kano.Mixed with the manga "Say i Love you".
It gives off a nice feeling smile

Finally love rivals worthy of the title, who aren't going about their obstructive ways in an OTT manner but genuinely creating dissent and conflict... Arrgh but I hate how easily this fellow seems to give up on their love while sometimes it feels like he wants to give it their all... I feel he's a closeted tsundere with how he expresses himself. He'll (seemingly always) have a plan to make things right between them but not mollify Uni enough at the moment and let her keep stewing or tormented all by her lonesome. Grrr older boys! Just coz he's cute and he knows his way about steamy kisses in girls bathrooms and makes her (and us readers) weak in knees all the time!!!

EDIT: But sensei's behaviour is driving me up the wall now. He just... doesn't fight for her. Much. I think. And despite him allaying her insecurities, he does things that will clearly implicate him and then puts on the cool nonchalant act. It's fine, if you're in that sort of a relationship where both parties are mature, but Uni isn't! She's a 16 year old kid who will keep messing up and throwing tantrums, he needs to work around that! ... Argh I'm getting too invested in their ridiculous shenanigans! Why couldn't this have stupid art, then I wouldn't keep coming back for more!

I like the art and although I don't usually like teacher-student relationship mangas, this one is really adorable. The art is so different! I'm always looking for shoujo mangas with different, refreshing art, as in no more large sparkly eyes or tiny noses and sharp chins. Anyways, the characters are so funny. Recommended.

It's Crazy But I Love It

I quite like the romance going on between Haruka sensei and Uni.
It is unlike any other student-teacher genre. Usually the sensei is always restricted in his actions because of his position but Haruka never fails to show to Uni how much he loves her. I like the part where Haruka proposes to Uni and promise his whole life to her. The romance is unrestricted and their chemistry is good. It was almost perfect except for the gag and over exaggerated comedy but you can't seem to hate it at times.

It's crazy and very unpredictable. Unlike any stereotypical shoujo.
It's quite cute..
Overall I really enjoy reading this!!!!!!

The 1st two chapters were ok, I wasnt loving it, but it was ok.

Then Uni's quirky personality and his love of satisfying her tsundere side gets really cute. The story is unrealistic in some ways (like fujiko-sensei's secret and her family who are a little bit like the Addams family), but in others I think their relationaship is more like a real relationship than most of the other student-teacher stories out there.

Its starting to take a little more serious turn with chapter 7, but this manga is actually really good. The person writing about him being just a sexual harasser should have kept reading. If you like Akuma to Love Song, Five, Tenshi Ja Nai, or Girl in Heels, then these characters have some of the same air. And the main girl, Uni, has great confidence- not a weak heroine at all.

FYI: uni = sea urchin (very spikey outside)

if you're not a fan of the genre, forget it. but i think it's up there with faster than a kiss or beast master. i admit, an intelligent lead will get me every time, but honestly- how common is that in shoujo?

I watched the movie at first and I thought that it sucked. The actress had the acting skills of a cucumber and the actor who played the sensei looked like an over-tanned boys-band member.
The movie portrayed Kururugi as an emotionless, sociopathic person.
On the contrary, in the manga, Kururugi has may friends and is joyous and playful and her character has a lot of sides to it. That's why I love this manga.
I enjoy the sensei-student genre in all, but I did enjoy reading ir a lot!
I can absolutely say that I enjoyed it way better than the manga "sensei".
Even though a proposal came so quickly, it somehow felt right and not too hasty.
I'm at the 9th voulme at the moment, I'm so hoping for a great ending.
So far I give it a 9.9 (coz nothing's perfect lol).

Recently I looked for a student-teacher romance manga, and this one is the best after FTAK, I should say. They're quite open in their relationship (being able to kiss in the school, and in classroom too). The story and characters are sweet too. I like that they don't rush in their relationship, even though they're engaged and all. I really hoped I could read the continuation of the story. Really hoped there will be a release in my country too. smile)
