I liked the early chapters of this Manga but by now I've gotten boored with it. There are only so many times that a girl can dump on a guy, even by mistake, and he still chase after her. By now, I'm hoping he dumps her for good and goes with the girl chasing him. No man is this persistent.

In this manga are more cliches than in ten others together, it`s just too sweet and innocent for me. It´s more like a love fairytale in modern ages and anything but realistic, it would be fine but this is so far away from reality I couldn`t force myself to read more than a few chapters.

The protagonist is the most pathetic character I've ever read about, oh well, if he was even a standard comedy manga indecisive guy, he'd have gotten the girl right away.

*Edit* Ok, he's still a crybaby, but he's gotten better, i do appreciate the growth in this series, though I find that these roms have too many troubles piled up at a time, mangakas need to pace a little more imo

Starting about Volume 9, the drama builds to silliness. You know that if the 2 of them are in a room and the miscommunication might possibly be cleared, then something will happen. He writes a letter, you know she won't ever get it. Its a frickin joke. So good, but... Probably best to just wait on this and read the end to find out how things turn out. All this silly buildup does nothing to advance the story, and skipping it wouldn't hurt things in the slightest.

goldminer is ridiculous. This is drawn in a cartoony style, as is nagisa and everyone else. What makes the main character ugly compared to anyone?Glasses? something a lot of people find endearing... Early in the manga there's only three contenders, while other ones of varying qualities come and go. The main character is actually the one with the second best job and the second best looks relative to the other two. He's fit but not muscular ect. He's also the one that gets a long with Nagisa on a day to day basis as oppose to having nothing in common with the other two or less compatible(I don't want to use the word incompatible) personalities on a day to day basis.

Let's also be clear that both main characters are trying to figure out how to have a relationship and it's not just one constantly screwing up or making mistakes. In a very pure way, this becomes about how hard relationships are while also showing the good.

goldminer also has no concept of what nature dictates. And doesn't understand that there's more at work in surviving than just beauty. There's intelligence in surviving, behavior that allows people to get along ect. There's also no one standard to beauty either.

Also about what kanakosoup says; The manga doesn't start out with the main character with a lot of women surrounding him, and he starts by being told he will have horrible luck with women. The main female character has only had one very short, comedic, big eared guy pursuing her at the beginning. It's a long manga and the effort and hardwork the main male character displays eventually gets some other women looking.

I hope people notice the other positive reviews that go into things I didn't cover.

Don't read. There are tons of better Rom/Com out there.

Ok, i like romantic comedies like anyone, but this doesn't work for me.
Boring characters, the art can get awful sometimes and the story isn't anything special.
To those who compare this to Love Hina: when love hina is a funny and one of the better Rom/Com out there, this is nothing compared to it. Fuguno (yume) is a total - repeat: total - loser and a crybaby. I can't stand him... -.-
At least Keitaro (LH) isn't a crybaby, and not a terrible loser, he works hard to get into todai.

Edit: The current cover for the fifth volume looks nice. Don't get fooled by it! The art sucks!

If anything, Love Hina is more like Yume de Aetara. Want a comparison? Why not check the ORIGINAL PUBLISHING DATES? Yume de Aetara started in 1994, Love Hina started in 1998.

Great story love the art work the only thing that makes it a difficult read it that the main male character is the biggest wuss alike and he needs to grow a pair. the female lead is ok hot headed but funny in my book.
If you can stand watching a man with nothing between his legs then its a good read,

This manga is pretty much nonsense that takes on forever without further development. Lame main male character who look and act like an id*** even though surrounded by cute girls.

If you like reading manga that allows the main female character to be pushed down in a hotel or car, touched and dated by other boys and the main male character would just look and do nothing and worse the main female character would also do nothing but cry (ohhh little shy girl) then this is for you.
