All the characters are just a little too simple...

This love story is gentle, innocent, and child-like. Even the male protagonist--an adult--seems innocent, almost asexual; there is but a single brief scene that ever so slightly hints of sexual desire, but that's it.) The art is decent, the flow is smooth, the secondary characters are natural and believable. Overall, it is a pleasant, short, forgettable read with light emotions.

A Useful Comment for Future Readers

Point 1: Do not get dismayed by Hirota sensei's appearance on the cover (I know I did). He hella looks better on the pages of the manga. He is, in fact, a certified hottie.

Point 2: Do not get discourage by the other comments which depicts that the ending isn't enough. Personally, I also want a better conclusion but the manga is by far one of the most enjoyable manga that I have ever read that I hardly felt disappointment in the end. If anything, I think what I felt was greed because I seriously want to read more!

Point 3: If you want kissing/fondling (or any intimate) action, you won't get anything from here BUT even the littlest hint of romance in this manga is heart warming. smile

I know the whole teacher-student relationship manga genre can get horribly cliche and cheesy and ULTRA unrealistic, but I have to give it to Mochizuki Karin and this manga because the plot is thought out so well and what's even more, it's executed beautifully. As the other reviewers mentioned, most of the lovey-dovey scenes are mere hints for us readers...It's all implied but it's not concrete. Although I can see that this type of plot device can be a disappointment to many readers, I really loved this subtlety with this story. Definitely give this manga a go if you want a sweet, slice-of-life, realistic manga!

My only wish is for Mochizuki Karin to come back to drawing manga...I really miss her work!

Finally! The first shoujo I've read without feeling a need to roll my eyes at the end of each page. I like it how the reader doesn't really know what goes on 'behind the scenes' between Kei and Hirota- the love scenes (if they are actually love scenes) are done quite subtly, leaving the focus on the story and characters themselves rather than the genre. An simple but interesting romance.

Sweet Love Story...

A beautiful take on a teacher and student relationship. The guy is at least descent enough to put a barrier between them until later (and is not smutty in the least) He is hilarious..And the story does take a while to build others say...the only fault is that the ending is too sudden (and does not wrap up the story >_<)

although it might be considered a very slow paced story, i find it perfect.
what makes it good is how realistic and simple it is..
honestly, i usually HATE teacher-student relationships in mangas, but i thought id give this a try; and i dont regret it!!

however the only complaint id have, it that its ending is kind of sudden..the mangaka should have showed some of their develop relationship in the future...

all in all, i still LOVE it! ^ ^

At first I thought this would be the typical studentxteacher, but surprisingly it's actually different. The plot wasn't cliched and the main character was actually likable. Also the slow feel felt very realistic. However, after reading it for awhile, I expected something more. The story was short and I thought that the plot could've expanded more. Also, I thought the characters could've been given more background and more plot. The main girl also could've been given a plot twist or something, since I had this feeling she was becoming more obsessive. But oh was nice while it lasted.

This is probably the only teacher-student manga that I like. If you'll looking for full-blown romance, then you'll looking at the wrong manga. Kudos to the author for giving a different, and perhaps a more realistic, perspective on the relationship between a teacher and his student. Like other commenters have said, the characters are grounded in reality, yet their feelings for one another is pure and modest.

This manga is slow and the relationship between the characters is characterised by restraint. Don't expect the two to get it on in the classroom or his office, or anywhere else. A lot of their physical interactions are left to the imagination and interpretation of the reader.

Nonetheless, I highly recommend this to anyone who is into shoujo or romance, just to give you a different perspective on the all-to-common teacher-student relationship.

this manga is a bit slow & maybe even a little boring, but it's not bad. it's definitely one of the better student/teacher mangas out there, maybe being *slightly* more realistic.

I really love it. I have this thing for student-teacher manga but this one is exceptional.

My only complain is that it's too short,nevertheless the characters came out well-drawn. It comprises of only 2 volumes yet it managed to convey me a lot of emotions unlike other shoujo which might be lengthier but lacking in substance.

Others complained that there were very few "love scenes" and it's true but I prefer the subtle and sweet way they interacted to the unbelievable and mostly ridiculous scenes from other shoujo. So if you prefer over the top romantic scenes, this one is definitely not for you.
