We follow the bumpy and funny romance between bubbly Tamoko and the serious Kanji. With Kanji's father running an idol agency, and Tamoko being the daughter of their top-selling idol, Shinju, things get complicated. Tamako must hide the fact she is Shinju's daughter to save public face, and at the same time, she is determined to be Kanji's ideal wife (as was promised when they were little kids). It doesn't help that Tamako's pretty clumsy and poor of domestic chores, but no matter what comes down the road, she's not about to give up!

I agree with all of the previous reviews: such a cute manga! But I don't give it the highest rating because there is one thing that bothers me. What in heaven is the need for the monkey as main character's pet? There is absolutely no use for it except for the added cuteness I guess and therefore I don't like it. And I wish that the manga was longer to develop the side characters more. They had all good material to begin with and it's a shame that they aren't getting a bigger part to play.
But except for these, I loved the manga: good pace, nice drawing, good story without extra drama to sink it... Just a winner! Looking forward to read more of this mangaka!

I really didn't expect it to be this good, I really was caught off guard. Very balanced, finely paced, no filler chapters with lots of changes and developments but nothing was rushed at all. Lovable characters (and I mean ALL of them), but I felt like the only one that grew was the heroine and really wished we got to see more depth in others too. I'm not complaining though, I always like the focus and straightforwardness of Tanaka Meca; it's just that more evenly distributed spotlight will give off a more real and relatable vibe for me. Anyways, love it and highly recommend it. Personally, I think this beats 'Faster than a Kiss' in every aspects.

It has everything a shoujo should have and managed to to leave me with a smile on my face feeling completly satisfied. Complaints? None really. The characters grow and make rational decisions based on their character types. No OC here. Completly lovable characters combined with a cute fluffy plot calls for a full 10. Funny, I didnt have to bash my head through the wall at anything frustrating today.

I give this manga 10/10. 4 vol of this manga have a perfect balance between comedy, romance, career without any dragging chapters. All the shoujo I have read always give the frustrating moments. There are no such a thing in this manga, people understand each other and themselves and have their unique way to express their feeling. All characters is likable, it's really nice shoujo

I loved the mix of romance&Comedy smile. I loved how it was never draggy and every chapter had its purpose ^_^ I really liked the characters too and the romance development between the two! I can definitely say that the main character isn't a weakling-"save me"-total hottie from the beginning- girl. She was an incredible character with motivation, strength and really fun!
I recommend this manga to those who would love to read about dreams and romance with comedy on the side wink

I loved this manga. I didn't quite know what to expect when I first started it, but it was really cute and laugh-out loud funny so I just had to go and get the rest of the volumes.

I really liked each and everyone of the characters. Even though this manga was just four volumes long they all had something about them that grabbed your attention from the adorable monkey-like heroine (who by the way is going on my list of cutest shoujo heroines ever) to the flamboyant cross-dressing manager of Dog Run.

Another aspect I liked about this series was the growth of the heroine, although she starts off somewhat immature (although not in an annoying way like your average shoujo heroine) throught out it we see her becoming a very admirable and strong person.

I was suprised when I found out this was by the same mangaka who writes Faster Than A Kiss because I see this as being a lot more of a fun, quirky, unconventional shoujo manga compared to it. (Not that I think FtaK is bad, there are just more lovey-dovey scenes in it and not as much humour)

Too cute as expected from TANAKA Meca

I thought the ending was okay. Its worth spending 40 bucks! smile


This is written by a mangaka who did Faster than a Kiss right? Well, as obvious as it is, it's adorable. The characters are lovable to the point you keep wanting for more. I thought 8th Grader and 11th Grader would be a bad idea of a couple pairing but it's really good and funny. You would clearly see that the main guy actually cares, moreover he's a perfect boyfriend to be with. LOL. again as expected of Tanaka Meca, he lets his main guys do the household task and all that. sooo adorable.

I'm to ecstatic to know how this ends smile
