anyway, this manga is a bit slow at the beginning, but it gets more and more interesting... sheeeeesh, don't jump to conclusions just after readin only 1-2 chapters....

once all the chapters are out, you'll see... im pretty sure this'll turn out pretty good.

To be honest, I don't like this. The story goes so fast, and what the heck is with the Student Council's president and the girl's bestfriend? They dared to do something like rape in the school's area. Yeah, this is a smut manga, but still too many sex scenes and seems like the sex scenes are Miinami Kanan's priority of making this manga. Well, I'd recommend Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu if you like Minami Kanan and want less sex scenes.

I wonder if the author sat down to think through the plot before drawing the sex scenes.... The characters (every single one of them) are horny, immature pre-schoolers with no original motivations whatsoever. It's all just the typical cut-and-paste background info. the characters have no redeeming values.

This wasn't as bad as I thought it would be from all the negative critique. I was expecting something horrible, but the art wasn't bad and neither was the story. I thought it would be more explicit also, but it really wasn't. My only qualms were with the main girl *rolls eyes* It is not possible for someone to be that stupid in real life I hope. But then again some girls are really stupid. She was just a little too annoying for my taste.

I didn't like it, cause everything is done to literal. It's a typical shoujo (Not that I've read to much). Although everytime I read a shoujo, I start thinking "Hmm, Cheating on a girl isn't that bad". Not that I'd to do it, but Since it's always set up that way, I'm surprised more Shonen Heroes would cheat on the Heroine. Shoujo/Jousei=Cheating Shonen=Faithful.

All that Aside, It's too simple, it's a little uninspired and the arts not great, just average (For Shoujo) However compared to a good Shounen/Seinen Artist, it's Below Average.

NOW all criticism aside, It's short to the point, and doesn't do anything terrible, just not great.
I'll give it a 6

AHAHAHA THIS MANGA WAS ATROCIOUS. The initial plot point was based off the male lead being blackmailed by the ridiculous student council president, but the threat was proven to be ineffective as soon as was convenient for the mangaka. The main character was a typical Minami Kanan heroine (dumb, 'fell in love' after two seconds) but had an interesting moment of self-reflection when the student council president was like 'you know absolutely nothing about this dude and just like him because he kissed you' and the main was like 'hey, that's actually true'. No actual meaningful dialogue came from this though - it's like someone in the Matrix woke up for two seconds but then nope, they're still trapped in a Minami Kanan manga. Perhaps the most blatant 'meh' from the mangaka was when the members of a sports club pledge to join the swim club when it reopens, then none of them do. They show up for one chapter and are then never shown or mentioned ever again.

Gets two stars only because of the art.

Sorry, I know lizchl says not to jump into conclusions (I only read the first chapter >_>) but I don't like how by only the first chapter and the second meeting, the main character already says I can't live without you. I don't like the art. I'm not so picky and it's hard to get a bad review out of me, but I just didn't like this one. :L

This manga reads like a more explicit version of Kare First Love or Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu. There's a school-life setting, boy-meets-girl plot, jealous female antagonist, handsome guy, etc. To be fair, I read this manga till the end and enjoyed it for what it was (simple satisfaction). It's not original, but it's a good choice if you're looking for a quick & trashy smut.

I finished reading it. It was good that it was short, I probably would have hated it if it lasted longer. It was average, but somewhat enjoyable. The only part that didn't make sense to me was how they couldn't live without each other in one day.

Kyousou Heaven= One girl + Best friend who's always been there and fell in love with her + love rival+ main girl's love interest +SMUT
