From Osuwari Team:

“Even though he’s this close, I can’t reach him at all.” A popular male model, Nashiro’s parents died and he was passed around from relative to relative until he arrived on the doorsteps of Mitsuki’s home. Entranced by his smile, Mitsuki has always been in love with him. However, he’s well-known for dating beautiful women, and she doesn’t feel up to par with these girls. Will she ever be able to make him look at her?

I hope this doesn't offend anyone's opinion... >w<

I wasn't able to read the whole manga.

Nashiro's character was a complete turn off for me. I also wished that Mitsuki could've not gave in too easily to Nashiro.

Well, I read the whole thing, the girl was okay, but I didn't like that she let herself be pushed around easily. And I really hate Nashiro, he is horrible. But hmmm, Overall it wasn't TOO bad.

This manga scares me, its presenting a really unhealthy relationship and calling it love, I'm used to the whole dual personality thing yet this shoujo heroine can recognise the weirdness of the lead male, the unhealthy personality he has. Yet she chooses to be used and abused by him. Unless he dies or seriously reforms himself in the later chapters this manga could well be one of the worst I've read. Furthermore the cover art looks alot better then the manga art which is seriously dodgy in some places. Overall I dislike it and am giving it a 1 for its unhealthy representation of love and its terrible portrayal of women. Steer clear unless your into the whole edward cullen abusive manipulative relationship.

One of the WORST portrayals of shoujo heroines I have ever seen. Usually the stereotypical girls are clingy and weak... but this heroine is more like a doormat. Like Lys said, she is one unlikeable "hero".

One of the things that attracted me to the manga at first was the art. It's quite nicely drawn. Since it's only 3 chapters I decided to continue reading otherwise I would've given up.

I'm curious as to what is going to happen though - and until then I can't give my final rating. What I hope for is some massive miracle that will perhaps change the main guy character ... but with one chapter remaining, it doesn't seem likely.

What is this? Seriously, what?? I don't think I've ever read a shoujo manga with such an unlikeable "hero." I know shoujo heroines are often of the doormat variety, but this girl is seriously stupid. The first chapter was mostly bland, average shoujo fluff, with bland, sub-average art that reminded me slightly of other mangaka I like (only not as good)... but at the end there was a rather unexpected twist that seemed audacious enough to merit reading the second chapter. But then! The second chapter was just... so... rrrg! How dare he?! And why on earth does she take that kind of treatment?! I don't usually get upset over bad manga because it's just not worth it... but this was so maddening I'm going to have to read the rest (haha) in the desperate hope that one of the characters develops some kind of redeeming quality, because if not, I don't see how this series could even be allowed to exist. With only one chapter remaining, I'm not too hopeful though.
