what the f with this female main lead, all that need is to be recognized as good guy by her, and get a little closer to her and that's all, you can kiss her f her all you want and you won't even see her resisting that much...

But still there are really good and earnest plots here and there, so for someone it might turn out to be a good read though.
I personally liked the relationship between shuseei sister and the senior guy living downstairs 😁.

Honestly this manga was a rollercoaster to read because sometimes I really loved and enjoyed reading it and other times I just wanted it to be over
I don't think the main characters are likeable but I still think they were pretty well written - the male lead barely cares about anything and is a jerk a lot of the time and the protagonist is annoyingly naive (though they do get better in the later chapters)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they both treat eachother badly at different times throughout the manga but I mean the male lead straight up slaps the protagonist in the face to make her shut up in ch 44 like it's nothing and she doesn't say anything about it - she let's him push her around the entire first half of the story
Out of all the things I had issues with (like them trying to convince her dad living together as high schoolers was okay and the male lead telling everyone they live together right away while the protagonist actually tries to keep it a secret) I couldn't get over that slap

But over all I managed to actually really enjoy this manga - it's easy to find fault with anything but it made me feel a lot of things and turned out to be more thought provoking than I expected so there's that
I mean it's shoujo so just don't take it too seriously and it can be a really fun read
The manga definitely improves in the later chapters - there's a cute slice of life feel to some of them that show the progress of the characters' relationship in an endearing way and the art is pretty great
By the end it's pretty adorable

The story is very lighthearted and fun to read. It made me feel happy and warm on the inside. I love how the relationship between Aoi and Shuusei was developed. It was kind of weird how there were so many love triangles but I expected this to happen (since I was reading a shoujo manga after all).

It was really good in the beginning, then the flow if story and introduction of new characters got pretty bad, but it got better and now I cannot stop reading it!! Love the latest chapters, their everyday interaction is enjoyable to read. Slow but satisfying. The art is very beautiful too.

There are some cute and endearing moments..
But I'm quickly turned off by the shoujo cliches that keeps appearing in this manga..
Cliches are not bad... but its poorly executed by the author..
It's also weird how new characters just suddenly show up and the next minute they are out of the picture... The author doesn't put emphasis in character build up for them...
To be honest I can't even remember their name anymore...
I also don't like how the girl is easily manipulated or lead by other people...

I just don't know...
It's a normal shoujo that I don't have great attachment or passion for it...
I'm looking for a good plot in a manga and I'm not easily swayed by handsome male lead anymore...

around volume 6 the main character goes extremely weak. I would even say annoying and clingy. i don'tknow how the series can be dragged for over 15 volume 10 the main character, if possible, gets actually appreciates the guy mor and more and how straight forward the guy seems to be...of course who knows, but that's my current opinion as of vol 10

I hated it. It was so jumpy, and I hated the flow. But it got better over time and grew on me, it's been a long while since I've been so invested in a romantic couple in ANY manga at all. It's good. Started it to waste time and now I can't wait for the next translation <3. Yayyy The plot just flows pretty well together, I honestly couldn't obviously predict what was going to happen. I absolutely love that.

~lil edit~
In the beginning- till it gets good or you start caring- I genuinely had a blast picking on and hating all of the characters. I was just criticizing everything but that in it's own way was fun. Then it eventually got good

Seriously, this gotta be one of the most stupid shoujo mangas I've ever read. It's typical out of the typical shoujos. The storyline is too common. The 'prince' of the school and the girl is an idiot desperate to experience love as if her whole world is revolving around it. Wanting to fall in love is not a bad thing, to do stupid things that sometimes almost trample on your dignity.. At first, I thought this is gonna be a promising one since the girl had the guts to confront the guy for rejecting her friend. I thought she's gonna be one strong female character, but in the end, she's just like any other girls. :/ And there's this part that the girl says 'I want to kiss him so that I can make him happy because I love him'. <- WTF. And then she goes reading 'Advises on kissing' magazines. I really find that embarrassing and really stupid. She is also assuming in the first chapters. :/ And during the part that they were caught living together by their father, the girl insists on continuing living like that as if it's a normal thing to do. The things that happens on this manga can only exists in dreams of people in real life. LOL.

This kind of story reminds me of love 'pocketbooks' that can be purchased here in our country. Maybe a part of the reason of my dislike in this manga.

Actually, before I started to read this, I just finished Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. At first, the latter didn't impress me much. But after reading this L-DK, I realized how Tonari has much more sense and realism that I'm unable to appreciate before. LOL.

Well, for those who wants to start reading shoujos, or those who're waiting for their favorite mangas' new releases, and if you have nothing to do, it may be recommended but I suggest that you find others more worth reading. It's more like for people who has such fantasies in love. That's all.

I'm a total sucker when it comes to these types of manga...I don't know why I always choose to read it but I always end up complaining about it. And the worst part is, is that I can't seem to drop this manga LOL. Must. Finish. Till. The. End...

I think it's cute. I mean her parents approve. I think if it ended at the chapter where her father let them be together...that would have been a really cute ending..but no.

Now we'll have to see the obstacles they face..blahblahblah.

At the first few chapters I really liked this manga, it had a interesting plot and seemed nice but now having read up till chapter 35, I feel like dropping this manga because its losing its plot and it seems boring and also cause half of the stuff that happens since the new glasses boy moves in the whole story becomes depressing and annoying, but I hope things change in the next new chapters :/
