Haruna Aizawa thinks that school life is just like a monkey mountain--all the monkeys form cliques, get into fights, and get back together again. The school that she just transferred to is no exception. There's even a boy called Macharu Yamashita who reminds her of a baby monkey!

"Why do we love?"
"Because you were there" Pretty sweet line. It kind of explains the whole feel of the romance of the story. The reason why the romance was so good was because it was realistic, while also being the kind of love one would want to experience: caring, passionate, companionship, and an overwhelming sense of desire to be around the other person. Haruna and Macharu the "idiot couple" forever <3
a good feeling left after reading this, i believe. really bittersweet to me, because i will miss the characters... which is weird, because around volume 6 i got reallyyyyy bored of reading about their everyday life and had to come back to it haha. but i really will miss the 'idiot couple'. and atsu, and all the friends.. the end had such open-ness, i loved it, and it made me feel a sad feeling all the same.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
poor atsu... he fell in love because he wanted a loving relationship like the two of them had, and got hurt... awwww... he was the most bittersweet part of the ending. i'm glad it ended like that though. i really liked how he just kind of pined from the side lines; if he got involved, it would have been annoying, unnecessary drama. i hope he finds his own love... and even kabuhei (?) hehehe.
I wish the dad would have been shown as at least a little accepting, however, it seemed unsolved on his side...
this was a good manga with good characters. like the previous person said, no real deep thoughts behind it (although there were realistic problems for the characters - parents, college, etc. i liked how time passed, and the complications were not too dramatic, but everyday problems. i also loved seeing the relationship progress. oh, and laughing out loud was fun too!

it is a good and nice - but in the same time a typical - shoujo manga. there is no suspense, mystery, or any deep psychological story. however, it is a good choice for you to spend your free time reading it.
damn!! its not in mangafox anymore!!
anyway aside from the fact that i have no way of finishing this now.. <or is it??> i think that its still all good.. not that im not saying that its not a good series.. im saying that its kindda episodic so it can wait and its a good thing.. even though it was kindda episodic it still has a body of story if you know what i mean...
anyway. i think tat the love story is bit fast paced.. nothing too complicated.. just character growth.. its actually quite refreshing without all the normal shoujo drama and the people are not all "too sexy do look at me" kind of people or "too beautiful shiny sparkly"... yeah that definitely adds points.. and also Macharu is also cute!!! he really is monkey like and the heroine is cool headed...
yeah its good even though sometimes i just hate Atsu but sometimes his also cute the jealousy also adds points!!!
<edit> i have finished reading it at the right time.. this actually gives actual insight on how i feel on parting ways with the oh-so-easy life that is high school.. though i dont have a boyfriend to share the grief with. but i think that the ending was a bit rushed though.. but at least its not like one of those happily ever after types.. but i am a sucker for those! god knowss.. oh men!! *sigh*
so my rating will not change..
i really enjoyed reading this,what a weird couple i like them both. in good and bad times they are always together to fight for their relationship but i don't like atsu trying to betray his friend. i hope they will make a continuation to this cu'z i really like the story

Finally a manga that's different! It's been a while since i've read a manga like this Its unique in its own way. Its a very cute manga and i love all the characters. I guess opposites do attract doesn't it A smart, mature and serious girl meets a childish, innocent and carefree boy! I love how its not rushed and how they go through obstacles together. Loved it, give it a try

It was funny
It was quite funny, the main girl wasn't weak an the the male protagonist was so cuuuuute. The story was ok but nothing stroke me as being very memorable. I just finished the manga and i forgot half of what happened ._.
i think that this is a sweet manga. it's all about high school, female heroine family conflicts and love. it's not something dramatic, it's just something cute. i find their classmates and schoolmates funny because they kept on betting about things which happens to the main characters love life. however, the character that i got interested in is Atsu. there's something just endearing with his character.
conclusion: a nice manga to read.
like lots, great story pace
Liked lots this story, the way its developed the pace (like it fast XD ), the deep romantic feelings with lots of sincerity, the way the deep in the characters life history, the way is tell, the comedy (lots of it ^^ ) and a bit of drama to spice things up
Great art by the way ^^

I picked up this manga thinking it's another one of those comedy shoujo with bleh characters and cliches all over. But man was I surprised. It IS another high school story... It IS another sweet innocent romance. But something about this manga made me fall in love with it. It's just so... so nostalgic. I love the characters, the light comedy, the relationship between the hot babe and the baby monkey, and the non-over the top drama. Basically, I love this manga in its entirety.
