Had high expectations seeing the josei tag but this is on the level of a mediocre shoujo, very immature and unsatisfying.

Yes, i know why this is tagged josei, but the content doesn't suit the target audience.

This self-professed ardent KimiPet fan fails to see how this is a side story to itconfused?

What/where/how? No visible connection from the description (nor does it sound similar enough or sufficiently individually interesting to warrant reading to check for one)

this certainly surpassed my expectations!
it was really funny!! laugh-out-loud-funny !!
i thought the bill clinton part was the funniest hahaha
anyway, this is a very light-hearted read. dont take it seriously
the chances of the events in this manga taking place in real life are below 5%.....but the humour certainly makes up for everything

The mother and Takako-san sure do have many interesting things to say, don't they? I enjoyed seeing them. XD
I think I can understand Takahito-san's actions to some extent, it seemed that he really loved Aito's mother, but I think he went a bit loco when she went loco also.
I really love how the title Ai to Makoto was incorporated into the story, it's sweet, is it not? XD
I can never really understand why Makoto and Aito fell in love so fast, but I guess the last chapter made up for it.
And to think that Makoto is older than Aito. Heh.

Ok the art is not the greatest but it's ok, the plot was good but the way it developed could have been better. I understand that love is supposed to over rule the mind at least in the mangas but seriously.

This story is fine. Well, the characters are good.
So, is the storyline. But, the genre.. it doesn't fit somehow.
Because, some parts contains you know what.
Well, That's it. Over all, I liked the characters and the story. ^^

It was quite funny and sweet. And having read Baby pop and Kimi wa Pet too, this is the only series from this mangaka that I actually liked.

I don't think average is the right word. It's on the different side, but...not that great. This is one of my favorite mangaka's worst stories. lol. Also, for those of you who have read Kimi Wa Petto, this manga contains Sumire's two sisters! (they're not the main characters though.) Worth a read if your a fan of Yayoi Ogawa.

A very average story about a woman trying to find out what she really wants in life. While the story is well done, it does not add to the genre.
