[Taken from ShoujoMagic] :

1) Let's Make Love!! (Make Love Shiyo!!). (v01 ch1 to 6) Mari Nishimiya is a high school junior who's tired of playing it safe. Less concerned with her summer session and more with achieving the love of a lifetime, she ventures to a foreigners' pub with her childhood friend, Yuuta. There, she meets Leon Gardner, an American dancer with a talented tongue (...meaning, he's bilingual)! While Yuuta disapproves, having an unrequited love for Mari himself, he and other enemies of this international relationship may be powerless to stop it when Leon joins Mari's class as... (!!!)

Let's Make Love!! - Farside Story (Make Love Shiyo!! Chou - Bangaihen). (v01 omake). Shinjo Mayu parodies her own work by inserting new dialogue into some of her pages from v01. It's the tale of the Gardner family, where Leon is Papa, Chris is Mama, and Mari is their daughter! Additional curiosities included.

Let's Make More Love!! (Motto Make Love Shiyo!!). (v02 ch7). Mari wants to have an adult Christmas with Leon. Why is Leon so set against it?

Let's Always Make Love!! (Zutto Make Love Shiyo!!). (v02 ch8). Attending the international wedding of Leon's friend, Randy, has Mari thinking in a new way about her future. But when Mari begins to feel strangely sick and misses her period, the circumstance forces her to make an early decision! But Leon suddenly has to leave for America!? Why?? Mari isn't going to like the reason Randy gives her...

2) I Don't Need Any Scenario! (Shinario Nante Iranai!). (v02 ch9). This ground-breaking short story was Shinjo Mayu's first work to contain a provocative sex scene and to mark her as a borderline pornographer! Read the freetalk to learn more! Yuuya is the manager of the drama club, and he's very strict and exacting about how the student thespians handle their roles. Chiharu is supposed to be playing a woman in love, but there's no emotion in her performance! So it's handsome Yuuya's job to teach her how to long for a man... Was this scenario in the script!?

3) I Want to Be Painted with Your Color (Anata no Iro ni Somaritai). (v02 ch10). This short story is Shinjo Mayu's debut work. Kazumi Inoue wants to be transformed by the magic of a white wedding dress, and then painted in a man's color. The biggest delinquent in school, Kazuya Sakurai, wasn't who she had in mind, though! He's intent on painting her a different color -- why? Kazumi will have her wish - a transformation through the magic of a wedding dress - but not in a way that anyone expects!

(v02 omake). A whopping nine pages covering a variety of topics. Get a sneak peek into Shinjo Mayu's office, find out her favorite stories and characters, see Leon with a top knot, see Leon touch Yuuta in inappropriate ways, and at long last the burning question is answered: How are chihuahuas significant to this serialization!?

I liked this one. Though it all about chemistry (reason is just not about this manga) but well it cute in it's own way. But they are just in love with each other and others can't even get in the way for long. A bit straightforward, but reading such a manga is good for a change...

And i don't agree with people who "pity" that childhood "friend"

Oh common... Only a total jerk will use blackmail to get a girl to date him...

I agree with what alexdhamp had to say in regards to Mari just throwing away her friend. How many women would actually throw away someone they've known their entire lives for someone they just met?

I've been reading some Shinjo Mayu stuff recently because I enjoyed a series of hers that I read, but this is just disappointing. The other parts of the story aside from what I mentioned in the beginning of this are pretty good. But after that, I kept thinking to myself that the story was boring, and hoped to finish it quickly.

The series makes a few attempts to throw in some chaotic drama, but it got resolved quickly, too quickly for this series to actually go somewhere. It could have been alot better, but the art did help it get the rating I gave it. Sometimes the art just doesn't work, but that rare. For the most part, Shinjo Mayu can draw really well. I feel this proved she needed to get better at writing, and I am sure she did (considering the date that this was released).

This manga would be okay if it was just the couple...but Mari's indifference to the feelings of her supposed childhood friend, Yuuto, revolts me.. Maybe it's just me, but how she just threw him away for the American guy sickens me...

This manga is the usual Shinjo fare - so if you hate Mayu Shinjo, don't read this. However, if you like her work, you'll probably like this as well. I'm a Shinjo fan and I thought it was really good.

The translators are a great bunch and i'd hate to offend them, but this manga is just... I guess it's cute if you're totally okay with the worst "I'm a teenaged girl humping a grown man, I want nothing more in life than to have his babies, every dream of mine revolves around him and I easily forget those dreams as soon as they seem less likely to make him luv me, etc" type shoujo stories. Oh and with 90s shoujo anatomy a la "I am manly and my shoulders are 500ft wide" and fashion crime clothes. >_>
