From Perfect Illusions:

Reo-chan, a first-year girl, gets dumped by her boyfriend because she's not skilled in the home economic traits he believes women should have. Her ex tells her that she must apply to a "housework" club before he will reconsider going out with her. Therefore Reo-chan has little choice but to join.

Here's the catch: the only members are four gorgeous bishies. The other first year in the club, Irinaka, competes with her a lot. As the story progresses Reo and Irinaka get forced into a lot of interesting situations together and in the meantime become closer and closer.

Good but not great

At the beginning I didn't like the art, but it get better at the end. I found myself skipping some chapters because they were like it won't matter to the story itself and I thought there is something missing at the end. Anyways, I got the feeling most of the parts and enjoying reding... That I did in one go, all volumes like in one day. So I recommend it! Just have patience. smile

I read this all the way till the end, and while I liked it for the most part as a cute sort of story, there were more annoying bits that stood out to me than good parts.

First, as book_lover mentioned, there were several arcs in which the main character's friends decided she was to be 'disciplined for her own good', and it left an amazingly sour taste in my mouth. What was with that? Especially towards the end of the manga, in which her boyfriend callously ignores her - all 'for her own good'. She finally comes back to him with an answer, and he just acts like he expects it to all be alright again, after hurting her amazingly. What an insensitive jerk.

The least that could have been done was one of her girlfriends going and kicking his ass. I think I would have enjoyed seeing that.

All in all, that, and the whole field-weeding thing (all the punishments seem completely out of proportion to the happenings in this story), it felt like the main protagonist just keeps getting the short end of the stick forever. I hardly ever felt any case in which her boyfriend, who supposedly cares about her, actually cares about her well-being. I mean, where does he seriously help her aside from the required "hanging out as friends" and "occasional territorial feeling"? Nowhere.

Decently cute, lousy romance. I was all set to give it a 9, too.

Parts of it really annoyed me

Overall feeling was typical feel-good fluffy story, nothing special, but in two instances I was annoyed. First, when the protagonist breaks the cup and second when she is having trouble deciding what to do after high school. In both cases the male characters acted like she had to be "disciplined for her own good" and she, instead of telling them where to put it, "realized" they were right, fawned over them and was oh-so-grateful. They treated her like a little kid and she acted like they were right to treat her that way.

Overall, I definitely think that the other reviews were pretty much correct. It did have some good parts, but there were also a lot of times when I was thinking, they really are making no progress at all. Usually I just read other peoples' reviews, but I'm at a part in the manga where it really bugs me. When the relationship is put on hold, it is clearly done so that Reo can try to discover who she is, and what type of college she wants to go to. She's really oblivous, and I think a little bit too perfect. But it is a manga, and it's fiction, so I don't really expect it to be more realistic. Overall it was so-so. I gave it a six because there were the occasional good times. But it's a slow-progress type of manga, and unless you like that sort of manga, then I suggest you just read over the other reviews as well, or just read it for yourself to see.

It did get boring, but because it didn't just focused on the main characters romance and that it also provided the others a little romance of their own. Although I didn't expect it to end like that, it got my attention. The ending showed the beginning and its entertaining to read something wrapped up not showing what's in the future rather showed the past and just left the future to the readers.

I loved this manga to begin with. The characters were interesting, the conflicts (stupid in a lame school sort of way) were fun to read but just got boring. Basically, past problems are either repeated or new and completely pointless problems occur. Not to mention the discovery that all the characters turn out to be Mary Sues or Gary Stues...They weren't to begin with but now they are. Which sucks.

club-themed manga

What I most enjoy about this series that sets it apart from others with similar setups is that there's a very strong continuation of the story between chapters, rather than the episodic challenge-of-the-week/month style that I usually see. Along with this, there is actually visible progress in the relationships (however slow) and time actually progresses realistically, rather than keeping everyone the same age forever. This is what makes the series stand above so many other "school-club"/"after-school-job"/etc series to me.

I really enjoy the art too—while maybe not technically flawless, it has a nice personality and generally is quite good (and as others have said, improves from the first chapter). The characters are all pleasant. And while I guess it technically is a reverse-harem manga in that there are a lot of boy characters and one main girl, in practice it isn't really like one at all. One more reason I enjoy it!

It seems I couldn't give this manga a chance to woo me. The reason? Well I have no interest in a manga if the art displeases me,...and in this case that is exactly what ended up happening. Don't get me wrong the arts not bad its just the mouth and eyes that irritate should I say it? Maybe it's too blunt for me.

Rather typical, but still good

It's a pretty interesting shoujo series, though rather typical, and not that much different from many school-life mangas (which increasingly seem to talk about clubs, and things like that). While the title might make you think of the Wallflower, it's actually pretty different--the protagonist is a normal girl, and pretty upbeat (as opposed to the utterly crazy Sunako XD;). It has elements of Ouran in it, I think, though there's less emphasis on the quirkiness of the club's boy members, and it's at a more normal school. XD
The drawing is pretty, especially further along in the series. The plot didn't quite click for me, but if you're interested in relatively light-hearted shoujo manga, you should check it out, because it's still a good manga (just not particularly fantastic). The first chapter is scanlated kind of badly, but the quality really picks up from there, and the rest of the first volume was done *really* nicely, so don't let your first impression put you off! ^^
