A 26-year-old salaryman, Matsumaru Fumihiko, asked Miss Tanaka from his work to watch a movie with him, but she didn't show up at the movie theater. As he is about to throw away the ticket, a 20-year-old, rookie voice actress named Onda Aka asked for the ticket. The two of them end up watching the movie together.

On their way home they notice that they live near each other. That night, Aka's apartment burns down and Matsumaru offers his help. She ends up living with him, but they have to keep it a secret to keep their jobs. What will happen to this relationship that is more than friends but less than lovers?

Why the scene is detestable.

She cheated on him. She let that guy sexually fondle her and would have let him go all the way. Afterward, she just goes back to her old cheery self as if nothing had happened. No remorse, no regret, no hatred for herself or the guy. It is like she learned absolutely nothing from the experience. It was as if the whole idea of cheating on her boyfriend didn't phase her.

Unfaithfulness is in the mind as well as physical. I don't care what excuses there are, you just don't cheat on your significant other.

It's quite an enjoyable to read. The character development is quite okay, and the arcs seems interesting. This will be a fun manga to read.

A different love story with a not so common protagonist

When one of the lead characters is a seiyuu / voiceactress, this manga drew me to it due to it being an uncommon theme.

Reading it has given me some insight to the work of a seiyuu, and the hardships endured as she climbs to the top.

Then it became a staple romance story after the lead joined the ranks of senior seiyuus, and for me, this is a sign that the manga turned for the worse.

Overall, a good read, and since it has not finished or exhausted it's premise, I think it's a recommendable read.

A serious love story this is not, although the different plot devices / a.k.a. new character encounters always ends up being almost sexual, but never really so.

Good, but not great.

People keep on trying to look on the britghside, but there isin't any, you could ask any man in the streets, that if his wife or girlfriend, had a man have sex, or halfway sex whatever you want to call that, they would consider it cheating, even if she had faith on him coming to save her, there was no resistance at all, and at the end, the guy asks her to not tell her boyfriend, and at the end she dosen't tell him or feels anything after that day, so it makes me think "SO WHAT?" cheating dosen't need to be complete, it just has to start.

After reading all these rantings of people droping at the legendary rage chapter 24...I just had to see it for myself so i jumped into it head first.
I put my two sense into this.
Nothing crazy happend really...Its just that the main heroine is...whats the word? An air head? But what do you expect from a seinen/mature. Comapring this to some of the rage i've seen in the past this is like disneychap.
SO basically in a nut shell: chp 24
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The heroin lets herself get stripped naked(no panties,no bra...all gone) ready to be ploughed through by another man whilst regreting it in her head? Why regreat it while letting it happen? Is she a F*&^ng retard/air head combo?

My two sense is that if you are planing to read it, do so and disregard what people say about chp 24 its not so bad. Bad...but its a freaking seinen. Come on.

I don't see why so many people are raging over Chapter 24 and bashing Aka for not being faithful. The character was guilty over the recently transpired events. Rather harsh to just suddenly drop a series due to ONE chapter.

And I can see why the mangaka went back to fun and light-hearted chapters later on. It's basically a change of mood. They can't just keep hanging onto that issue, can't they.

Yeah, the chapter was complete filler, and the manga writer probably ran out of ideas. I don't see how it's that big of a deal though.

I gotta say, this series is really boring. I liked it at first but it's just repeating the same thing all over.
I've read some of the raging about chapter 24, I can admit I was raging a bit because of that as well, but not for the same reason:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Aka almost had sex with that other dude with no resistance at all just because he pushed her a little bit, that was meh I suppose, the thing that makes me rage is that she keeps refusing her own BOYFRIENDS advances throughout the whole series so far(read 48 chapters) and I'm seriously contemplating dropping this show

Well, I guess it can be a good way to kill some time, but if ur looking for a good manga, keep looking, this will just get you bored halfway through

Great series, despite what the others might tell you. The nerd rage some folks have about Ch 24 is ... unsettling, to say the least.

It isn't as though the male protagonist din't pull off the exact same thing a few chapters back. It seems ... a bit sexist that a lot of people base their entire judgment of the series based on that sole chapter, ya know? It gives the impression that the readers of this manga are male supremacists and that infidelity is only bad if the guilty party is female. And before you ask: I'm a guy. Sure, it left a bad taste in the mouth to read it, but come on, the mangaka has to stir up some drama in the series, else there wouldn't be anything to read.

Anyway, the series tries to be original, at least. Unlike many other romance mangas where the protagonists have to wangst 3/4 of the series before they hook up, and then needlessly wangst some more after that; Aka and Matsumaru officially pair up fairly early in the manga, and the manga is more focused on the maintainance of their relationship rather than the building of it. The story is (mostly) light and humorous, with a few rather heartwarming scenes here and there. If not for certain ... aspects of the series, it would seem more like a shounen series than a seinen. Infact, the light tone of the series rather reminds me of Mahoraba, and if you're a fan of that manga, you're probably gonna enjoy this one as well.

Ok i haven't read Rec in a long time and having some down time decided to take look and i saw that "that" scene was a big issue for ppl., ok its not as bad as some ppl. make it out to be. True that compared to the rest of the manga which is light and fun, it was dark and out of place
Spoiler (highlight to view)
also yamada doesn't fully goes through with it, he cant lower him self to that lvl thank god
but having read darker stuff *cough sundome *cough it merely got my attention. I feel the author was just using this as way to strengthen their relationship and probably got burned by his fans cause of it and went right back to his light and fun style. If anything consider this a caution the manga gets dark sometimes so for those light readers WATCH OUT! senin, mature, drama can be a nasty combo.
