Expected something better

It's one weird manga. At the beginning Chizu was kind of annoying, later I started to like her straightforwardness, just to get irritated once again at the end. I feel like her personality isn't constant. Once she's very reliable, doing everything on her own and being the mature one, just to be completely bold with obvious things. Her personality didn't seem very true to me. And she was never angry at anything. She changed her environment like this, went to new country, new school and everything and didn't even say a word. The family was crazy too. I get it that they took her in as family but she has no idea about living in Japan, yet they expect her to act all japanese and don't let her do things she's used to. Moreover, they want her to accept them as their parents (I know they say family but just one look and it's obvious they would love her to call them mom and dad)? Wtf, she's 17 already, not only she remembers her real parents very well, her father just died! She's basically independent, yet cannot do anything. I would get really pissed.
I liked all her bold showing of emotions. This was really fun to watch, together with how she was just saying everything straight in people's faces.
But my biggest problem is with the content in general. It started off weirdly, she just lost her father and kept talking "papa, papa" (she's 17, remember?), just like that decided to go live in Japan, knew from the beginning she loves Tsuji-san and basically didn't care about a thing. What's more, the manga didn't end with anything. I looks like a part of bigger story, with no beginning and no end, while the middle part was all sort of things. I really like the chapter with twins, but the rest were chaotic like LOTR: Two Towers.

The manga is way to short for my taste. But the main character is awesome. Speaks her mind and goes after what she wants. The male lead is also supportive and at the same has something else going on too, not just his relationship with the girl. I have never thought "COMMUNICATE DAMNIT!!!" once while reading this manga, which is a very nice thing. But the ending is a bit unsatisfying.. i want to see their future and babiess....

I really like this manga, perhaps to the point where it would even beat Ashita no Ousama, except for the fact that it's too short to have the same sort of development. The female lead is, to put it simply, straight-foward and still likable. Positive, but not overly dense or stupid. A balanced enthusiastic character that has her more than level-headed moments.
The main thing that this manga has going for it is that the maturity of both of the MC's is on the same level, despite the age gap----I can't stand when the younger girl gets the older guy when she's not mature enough to handle him, let alone herself. They're both two young people chasing their dreams, and finding encouragement in one another on their journey---a reciprocal relationship that even the ex-girlfriend (who's not evil!) seems to notice. The manga is also border-line slice of life, with an episodic feel at times. I should note that I also have a huge soft spot for MC's who properly communicate what they're feeling (in general and to each other), so the friendship aspect to their relationship cinched this as a favourite shorter re-read despite the shortcomings in story and character development.

Interesting insights into Japanese Culture.

I found this manga very interesting from an anthropological point of view. The author uses the main character as a tool to explore the Japanese culture.
Being brought up in America made Chizu open to physical contact (hugging, kissing etc.), and side characters remark about her foreignness throughout the manga. Many of the things that were refreshing about Chizu - her ability to say what she feels, take action and be her own person - are dismissed by her friends, teachers or relatives.
For example, when she wants to work during the holiday she has to do it sneakily, without her relative's or her school's knowledge because it's banned. She wanted to be able to support herself through university, which was at odds with the school's idea that students should think only about their school work, and perhaps, because its expected that parents pay for their children through university.
Chizu was only "allowed" to act like she did because she was foreign; it was not out of place for her, being brought up in America, but if she had been brought up in Japan, her character would have been significantly different.
Maybe I am reading too much into this, but it really was quite interesting. The romance in the story is quite slow paced and idealised at the end, but nevertheless refreshing because of Chizu's character. It's a nice, short story with a realistic ending and a main character who is strong.

I love how the main character isn't the type of girl who doesn't say that she want, glooms about it, and doesn't know who to fight for herself against others. Yes, she isn't the smartest girl around BUT she is the BEST representation of an average girl smile Oh and she tackled the stupid Japanese made stereotype that all Foreigners from America kiss everyone who they know! NO ONE, in America and Canada kiss people they meet on the lips!~ That stereotype is for Europeans NOT Americans. )U_U(

the story don't really have any twist or exciting plot, but it is an enjoyable peaceful read. the characters are all normal cheerful people and there is no unnecessary drama. i don't enjoy shoujo with misunderstandings and unspoken feelings, that's why i love this because the main character is always forthright in her own feelings. right off the bat the guy know of her love for him. the art is classic soujo, but they are proportionate, uncluttered and appropriate for the story. a very good read.

Not amazing, but not so bad either...

It's cute and interesting, and I like Chizu, as well as the concept behind the manga. Still, I'm not completely drawn in yet... I guess because there isn't any clear plot movement as of Chapter 2. I guess I'm not really invested in her and her struggles yet.
The chapters also don't seem to be very cohesive in of themselves either (though I guess I'm a little biased because that's something I discovered that I loved in Oishii Kankei). There are interesting developments but no theme or idea behind them... But there are more chapters to come, and the events that are happening are interesting. It's not particularly great or thrilling, but it's interesting nonetheless... maybe soon I might be hooked.

I'm so happy to be able to read one of Yachi Emiko's manga, because it is on the list of upcoming project of wingtipcafe scanlation group. I gave ten without reading it, because of the author, but I will edit my review once i will have a chance to read it. Thanks to the scanlation group pick up this manga.
