Description
A self-proclaimed angel decides to intervene with a boy's love life, starting with a timer on a boy's arm, which will count down every time the boy's heart beats from interacting with his crush starting from 10. At 0, the boy will confess everything he is thinking at that moment. But it only starts there! The 'angel' has powers based on the number 10, and grand the boy the ability to stop time, make someone fall in love with him, learn who others like, and more. With comedy, romance, and drama, this is not a typical shounen series and should not be passed up.

Your normal romcom with few interesting element added, in the beginning.

Unfortunately after the twenty chapter or so I don't see anything particularly outstanding and found the series to be dragging its feet and now just wish the endless push and pull end already.

More than a simple ecchi due to execution

I usually don't really like the "magical being descends upon a loser" stories (aside from To-Love-Ru, because that was well done), because it just seems so... easy. A guy is bound to a girl that happens to be perfect for him because of some cosmic fate just seems too convenient of a story. I like romances that have to be developed.

And this is different, because the magical being is there to help, and is completely not a love interest at all. She is cute in a chibi way, but not in a way that would be acceptable to see her as a love interest.

The different kinds of magic are interesting, and they lead to some great scenarios. The author does a good job using the "10" gimmick to come up with a lot of plot lines. The main important part though, is that the author doesn't use this gimmick as a crutch, but uses it to further develop the story. (Spoilers) When the author reintroduced the tried and true idea of a memory wipe, and the misunderstandings that resulted after the earthquake, that's when I knew that this mangaka knows what they're doing. That's the proper way to progress a story: to hint at her feelings, but draw back enough so that the story can stay back and not be too rushed. To me, it's a perfect way of pacing. We understand her character, but then all of that is quickly negated. It is not done in a frustrating way, because her feelings are still there, but the only progress of bringing out that feeling is stunted. And that's much better than eliminating her feelings altogether. (Spoiler end)

The art is great. There's a lot of humor. Very little fan service, but that's ok for me.

The bottom line is, it's just well executed. As with a typical harem, there are more love interests that are introduced, but the great part with this story is that more antagonistic characters are simultaneously introduced as well, leading to a very real possibility of a conflict directly related to that new love interest.

The concept may be cliche to you, but the plot and the characters allow it to remain very fresh and entertaining.

First of all...

Thanks so much, Simple Scans!

This one looks like one to watch! It takes all of the tried and true and, kinda, tired premises and shifts them sideways a bit. I don't want to spoil anything, but I think that you'll get the idea with just the first chapter and it gets better from there. If you looking from a break from the same-old same-old, I think you'll like it. Don't get me wrong, it's got all of the staples to school/teen/childhood friend etcetera-tarah--but Nao jumps from the tried and true and overdone to pull off some nice twists.

Fun Story

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ignoring some of the rather cliched aspects of the story, this is actually a rather fun read. So far (6 chapters in), this is like a harem, except where only one if the girls for sure actually likes the guy (and she's totally unwilling to admit it). I'm enjoying the self-discovery aspects of the story, and how in the last couple of chapters, the protagonist seems to be actually learning some things about himself...

I'll avoid rating it for now since there are only 6 chapters out, but what I read, I enjoyed a lot. The description makes it sound like it'll be lame, but it's a very entertaining read. It starts with the 10 doki doki love timer, and goes from there with the witch/angel Sasara employing other forms of magic with a 10 motif from stopping time to making the other person say thank you. I'm not sure how long it can last, but so far it's been funny.

Chapter 25

Chapter 25 makes this entire series worth it, it has to be the silliest thing I've read in a long time.

Make it to chapter 25 before you judge this manga, it's has excellent humor. At least enough to tide over the slow pacing all shounen romance has.

Far better than I expected

As others said below, this is far better than the premise suggests, in part because it doesn't devolve into a lame ego-boosting harem.

The characters generally behave coherently (even if the 'angels' are out of whack and bring in lots of zany fun) and the relationships are complex and evolving. I also like how the main character has a fair amount of moral fortitude, even if he does at times succumb to minor temptations. In particular, throughout his 'forced' pursuit of his love interest, you'll see him do nice things, sometimes in sacrifice, and hence you get the sense that it is actually believable and natural for his relationship with the girl to be progressing.

I have a feeling that in the end the author will make love blossom naturally, without any angel-created magic, as indeed anything else would be a type of mind-control and (essentially) rape. As ugly as that last word is, I hope you'll understand how in fact this manga is about the absolute opposite, and that the characters are all genuinely nice people, which makes for good story-telling, IMO.

So much fun at the beginning

The manga starts very well off, it's both interesting and funny. Yet I get the feeling that the author didn't really thought it would have such a success and would continue on being released. Later on it really does start to feel repetitive and it seems it lost its way as the story probably should have already ended and/or should focus more on the relationship between the main characters. Well, I hope it won't get dragged for a long time without an idea, Nao probably should have thought more about how he wants to end it before it got into this cycle.

Better Than Other Magic of the Week Stories, with a Sweet Conclusion  
by DoujinHunter
September 20th, 2015, 8:32pm
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
This manga uses the standard magic-of-the-week in many chapters to give the readers something to read, but more often than most manga of the same genre uses these to move relations forward. In addition to this, characters are hesitant without being such to the same frustrating extent as comparable ones. There are also some rather touching moments, though they are often subverted for comedy. I very much enjoyed much of the comedy in the story and found myself smiling and laughing much more than I have with similar stories. The ending was also a nice note on the relationship between the main characters, using the magic-of-the-week to strengthen it for the difficult times to come.
