Good stories tell you why...  
by Utsukushii Yume

Rating: 2.0 / 10.0
Someone once said that good stories tell you why. Why people feel a certain way, why I as a reader should care about what is happening, why characters are motivated to do what they do, etc.

As an example, instead of saying: "MC is in love with a hot boy"
It would say: "The MC found herself drawn to the boy's kindness"

The same sentence telling us she is interested in some guy, but we now know why she likes him.

This book NEVER tells you why. I don't know why the MC likes her crush, I don't know why she has low self esteem, I don't know why she lacks any sort of 3 dimensional depth, I don't know why she doesn't have self-control, I don't know why she is so selfish, I don't know why she lacks morals, I don't know why I should bother reading past chapter 11, I don't know why-

You get my point. Stuff is just happening in the book because the author said it should. Everyone is a 1 dimensional character. Nobody has any depth in this book.

There is nothing wrong with having a wishy washy MC, but you have got to make them 3 dimensional. There are things like Internal and External struggles, and they are much deeper than the stupid "oh I simply can't break away from *insert the guy of the day who will kiss her here*" nonsense.

You can't expect me to believe that such a nice girl who was raised by her grandma is capable of making out with all those guys, and NOT ONCE feeling ashamed of herself for how she acts and growing from it. NOT ONCE does she feel "wow I am really easy" and feel disgusted at herself? NOT ONCE does she feel uncomfortable around strange men being nice to her, after x amount of times they have pushed themselves on her already? UNBELIEVABLE NONSENSE!

Having her LEARN & REACT from the things happening to her and struggle with her morals as her helplessness to stop these men place her on an intense emotional roller coaster where she must fight against her low-self esteem, her hatred for her helplessness, and the possibility that she may never find true love since she sexually attracts men to her. All these conflicts are in the story and NOT ONE of them is used for character development.

There's nothing good about it except for the art. God I despise everything about this manga. The incorrigibly stupid characters, the messy crap plot, the sheer absence of moral decency - JESUS CHRIST! Where's the humanityconfused

If there was a negative scoring, I would have given it! >.< Lame ass story!
It was all about this girl getting kidnapped time and again. There's a limit to how many times she can give into sexual advances. once or twice with the guys she likes is fine, but every time? And even with people she just met?That just makes her a slut with a li'l consciousness (Because she seems to be remember that she has a boyfriend now and then after all!). May be she's from the lineage of sluts instead of flowers?? That will explain it all.

Well, first of all, the beginning is nice. The whole ''I wear glasses and put my hair in braids but I'm actually beautiful'' was good. Then she cuts her hair and everyone knows she's a beauty. But EVERY BOY STARTS HITTING ON HER. I mean, she lets herself to be kissed, kidnapped, and raped when she's got this gorgeous boyfriend who truly loves her. Its not her fault she has her pure flower scent but the plot really makes no sense. It goes: boy kisses or kidnaps her, boyfriend saves her, boy practicably disappears. Then over and over until there were like 20 guys that kissed her. She just throws herself and lets herself to be taken away. Momo should just change already! Because of her innocent personality, people think she's a jerk,a slut, and someone who wants a boy harem. Not like I don't agree with them( the jerk part). Its long and it repeats.
And I agree with you, kelleykel , that we just want to read the ending and her scent gets taken away. Big deal? YES. She won't be cheating on her boyfriend and b chased by boys. Because of this many people falling for her, she'll be breaking their hearts. So come on and end this already!
Art: ***** its fluffy and cute
Story: ** messy and repeats itself
Characters: *** Momo is stupid
Romance: * She gets picked up by random boys.

I know its a really really bad book, and I only read it because I want her scent to be taken away.

First of all the author keeps on making new charectors when she needs to bring the old ones back. I mean a guy tries to rape disappears , a another guy tries to rape her and dissapears.

But I LOVE THE AUTHOR, and people must understand that this is her earlier works, her best work is mei-chan no shitsuji, that is a good one that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Anyways I DOM'T RECOMMEND THIS, because I'm just reading it just to see the ending, ab=nd trust me this story drags on.

Uh, okay. So she has a flower or something, and people will want her until she is deflowered. That was a good idea. So then naturally, guys attack her and try to deflower her. Okay. There should have been like two guys and moved on to some other arc, BUT NO. I read up to volume three and it's like a shojo filler anime (shugo chara cough) where that is ALL THAT EVER HAPPENS. and you think she'll toughen up and find a way t--NO SHE DOESN'T.

There could have been SO MANY other things to do. Like of the fragrance actually had a power and added a magical girl edge to it, or if there was a way to get rod of it and she embarks on some dramatic quest to get it instead of always being felt up by men and LIKING it. She should just lose that V already. All those girls at school calling her a whore, yeah she is. She's just not a likable character at all. Pathetic, whiny, I-want-people-to-touch-me-so-I-never-change-my-stupid-personality, and just...stupid.

Feminists, do not go near this.

Scent + 2@#% - ?? = Slut

Erm . . . I am so confused on my opinion on this manga. I mean in the beggining it was ok it was about a smart nerd that got a make over from some guy oh and then she undergoes some serious becoming stupid surgery , that came free

. . After that the story focused on this whole scent talk my thoughts "ok I can get ust to this" then wait a minute rape ?? EVERY SINGLE TIME ANY GUY CAME INTO THE STORY THE FEMALE LEAD AND THE GUY ON THERE FIRST ENCOUNTER WOULD EITHER KISS (AND SHE WOULDN'T MIND BECAUSE SOME HOW SHE COULDNT 'CONTROL' IT!) OR SHE WOULD HAVE SUM SORTA SEXUAL 'HARRASMENT' and I'm being nice when I say 'harrasement'

She acts like a dumb stupid person throughout actually no she is ! always acting 'nieve' when all she really is , is a slut that kisses anyone that is the opposite sex even blood relations , its like she says to her self every morning "Mmm , I love getting touched up , it makes me feel so good , especially when I'm wearing no panties and old men finger me on the train I love how I can act so dirty with every man and still get it from my lovely boyfriend I mean Heey might as well act as if I donts like getting felt up wats the harm , I gots my speciall scent anywayz, I just loove it hehe and when I have to tounge to get an object it makes me feel so good inside , having so many guys on me , I might as well throw in the whole family hehe " sorry but that's as clear as its gonna get ,srry if you don't like the truth .This is the girl that was supposedly 'smart' yeah flipping right ! "We kissed so many times I lost count " WHAT A SLUUT ! ok I actually didn't mind this because she actually wasn't tecnically going out with anyone but then she was and it continued.

Then comes the ending . . What the Helll . . I . . Didn't get it ,it made noo sense and it felt rushed the plot just suckeed and then to have such a bad ending I mean thaanks atleast gimme a good ending ! , it was basically 7-8 rape scenes then BANG ! The end.
I have to ask WHY THE H HAS THIS BEEN LABELLED SMUT there's no smut . Sigh* (disspointment for 'smut lovers')I could seriously go on and on but ..

I think it would be pointless people will still read this , all I can say is on baka-updates I think its safe to say that once a manga has a majority of bad ratings then there's usually a very good reason why , (it suucks) if you still wanna read it go ahead and look at it for your self but you will be thinking throughout the manga that its ok but when you get to the end its like Omg what have I read. I really didn't have any complaints right till the end its like hypnosis lol.

you know its bad, and you know you should stop reading it
but somehow you just can't
the girl isn't really a slut though, she has this quality where as long as she is a virgin guys who smell her want her and her body gets aroused no matter what even if she doesnt love them

the best part of this manga is that even though all these guys are trying to steel her virgintiy her boyfriend who loves her very much wants to wait until they are married
she is dense and over forgiving and the constant ALMOST-rape scenes are repetitive. but i just can't hate it not one bit haha
