Unrealistic? Yeah. Good? Definitely!

Note: This review does not include a review for the One Shot's in the series

A cute manga, maybe a bit over the top and a little far fetched at some parts but it was still quite cute and fluffy. A quick nice read that while it doesn’t need to take priority on you’re “to read” list it is still something that you could read on the side for enjoyment.

Plot- Relatively unique, the main premise was somewhat interesting but not overly much and you may be able to pick out a few (though not many) shoujo clichés. It has a pretty nice pace, maybe a bit quick at some points but for a short work it was very nice.

Characters- Personally I liked them. Yeah the main guy, Ran, sometimes was a little over the top, and a bit inconsiderate at time, and annoyed me a bit, but it was neat to see others reactions to his over the top personality, so I could stand him just for that. As for the girl, Riko, I liked her personality and her general reactions to Ran’s actions. She was tough and willing to stand up for herself and for others.

Other- Not much else to say. I don’t think you should go out of your way to read it if you have a full plate of manga lined up to read but if you ever have time you should definitely pick this up for a light read! Just be ready for a few unrealistic situations!

8/10 – Really liked

Haha, is it bad that I liked the one-shots better? smile

I mean, not that the main story was bad, not at all. The main story was definitely cute, a little cliche, but overall was very refreshing. Especially the female lead. The humor was often exaggerated, but that just makes the story that more funny. Nothing life-changing, but definitely worth the read.

What I really liked though, were the one-shots. I love Takagi Shigeyoshi's style in her one-shots. Similar to her other one-shot works, like Ningyo ga Fuchi, Anya Kouro and Akuma ni Itsukushimi no Te o , they both had a melancholic atmosphere, and tragic characters, but at the same time, a touch of positive light and even humour.

The story wasn't anything really new. It was nicely done though. The main characters, Rin and Riko, were lovable and endearing. Riko's struggle to be a normal school girl was often an element of comedy. Rin's actions were sometimes outrageous. The assassin was a bit bumbling at first appearance, but turned out to be useful in the end. Rin's body guards were a bit strange. It wasn't a complex storyline, but it had enough meat to make a good read. The two short stories weren't bad, but not as good as the main story. The short story in the 1st volume was better than the 2nd one. a nice read, worth the time.

I loved it so much! I read it on a whim in one sitting and fell in love with the characters and plot! I rated it a 10 and reccomend it to everyone. It was funny, clever and the make-you-sigh kind of sweet. My only regret is that it ended too quickly!

I thought this storyline lacked a 'realistic' element to it, most of it was quite farfetched. The fast pace just doesn't quite match up with the events. But the ending was worth reading up to, and there are quite a few lovely symbolic elements in it. The characters were established alright I guess, especially the girl. The art is also quite nice.

it was so fun!! the story was a lot similar to [m]Higurashi Love Dollar[/m], but this was wayyyyyyyyyy better! the story was yeah sure.. overused.. the business prodigy taking you away with him.. but the characters are really lovable and the length is really appropriate! and you can see that the mangaka didnt milk it for all its worth.. which is awesome! xD and the art is really clean! i like it!

I freakishly love this manga.. The main female lead is so awesome and most importantly, NOT annoying! The art is so nice and the storyline is fairly simple and will truly makes you laugh as you're reading this manga. Really recommended..

haha, I really do love this one! So funny in a hilariously exagerrated way, with an obnoxious, arrogant, but deeply in love hero and a freakishly flexible and stubborn heroine. The story's basically about him trying to win her over, and each chapter has a super cute scene... true, she does get in danger a lot because of the guy, but it's all there for the humor (and personally I find it entertaining). It's definitely not the kind of manga you should take seriously. Recommended!

I actually liked this manga alot. Most of the manga that I read, are mangas that have a girl as a main character who are strong, smart, athletic, and can take care of themselves, and who have a hot prince trailing after them. This is definately one of those mangas. The story is way cute, and the characters are really funny. Not to mention the "prince" in this manga is also very hot. I would totally recommend this manga.

i think i like this series more than Film Girl, at least there's an adequate amount of romance in it, uwah love it, the power of love here is so overpowering. ( <---My thoughts after reading volume 1)
I love how Riko keeps to her principles, believing in justice, capable of taking care of herself, and of course her magnificent stunt acts, dope~ Usually you'll see the female protagonist at the back of the lines, waiting and hoping for a good outcome, or they'll be crying their way out and to the extent sacrificing themselves like selling themselves to the other party, but Riko is different, she'll be like, "we're going through this together" kinda thing, stay by his side the whole time~ now this mangaka is cool for making such a cool character~
Thoughts reading volume 2 - well, it just gets better, love is crazy flowing in the air~ and somehow or rather, it becomes comical to watch their love grow. Cheesecake dude...the more i see Riko in action, the more i like her, she is so someone to look up to~! She's like your wife that stays home and when you're in trouble, that's when her time has come to save you...well, that's the feeling she gives off to me. I love her in every way man, love how the way she handles situations~ and to me it was a good ending and a nice epilogue, muaha loved it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
at the end, everyone became friends of tachibana, even the assassin hahaha

About the oneshot, i think Fureru Ondo seems unbelievable, sigh, at the end i don't like the story at all, maybe it's just hard for me to understand what's going on.

And did i forget to mention, once again great art by the great Takagi Shigeyoshi ^_^
