There are very few shoujo heroines as brilliant and refreshing as Naedoko. Take it from someone who has sifted through an ocean of crappy heroines and found less than 10 that are actually unique characters. She really keeps the series entertaining and 90% of the comedy stems from her antics as well as her obliviousness to Tsubaki's feelings. I realized as I was reading that while I love Tsubaki's attempts to get Naedoko to notice him, if he were placed in a typical shoujo series, he'd be relatively uninteresting and cliche, which means Naedoko is the one who single-handedly made this manga a gem. Take her away and the story wouldn't be as good as it is, but have her as your lead and suddenly all the relationships and dynamics with the rest of the cast seem so natural and engaging. This is character writing at its best.

I can't read anything else. Every other shoujo sucks in comparison. I find myself rolling my eyes while reading tbem now. I need more shoujo like this, more heroines like Naedoko. This is a great manga, from beginning to end. 9/10

I can't believe it's over already...

This was a really cute manga. Naedoko and Tsubaki are a believable couple, and the author gives the plotline a cozy, fluffy feeling to it. It might be too sweet to be as 'psychological' as some people market it, but it's refreshing. There's not really any stereotypical shoujo cliches in it.

I liked the development of the characters, and I liked that romance makes the characters more open minded instead of weaker. The relationship is awesome between the characters, and the way they grow is very well done.
However, I wished if at the end
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I wished if they remained friends, I really like Haru and everything, but I prefer they stay friends, because I liked their friendship. As for her romantic interest, I wished if it was the president.
I liked the stories of the side characters, but there are still two characters that I wanted to know more about.
Well, there are more chapters coming (hopefully). Hope I can see them.

UGH. I TOTALLY ADORE THIS MANGA AND I DON'T CARE HOW FRICKIN' "LONG" OR HOW IT GOT "DRAGGED ON", I finished this in one sitting. I'd never find characters as badass as Kanoko, as adorable as Tsubaki or as reliable as Momo and Sayuri. I LOVE the character development. This manga is too good. RECOMMENDED!

The female lead is interesting even if she is weak to the male lead. The male lead, however, never leaves the female lead alone, even when she clearly doesn't need him. It wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't doing it every chapter constantly. I just want to see the female lead make plans and actions without requiring an unneeded male bodyguard all the time.

Although I think this manga is very great, I also think it has been dragging on for a bit.
I love Tsubaki and Naedoko, but I believe it's continued on with a bit too much dragging.
It's not that I don't like this manga, but I think it should move on.

One of the best shoujo available in my opinion, for a few reasons. Mostly the heroine-don't be shallow like me and pass her up because she isn't your typical doe eyed pretty female lead. I now can't believe I thought that because seriously Kanoko is so cute, not to mention intelligent, clever, and observant. Also a wonderful thing about her is that finding a boyfriend is not her life goal, rather love is not really
in her radar. I also love this manga because of the Tsubaki and his sad unrequited love sad (this isn't really a spoiler, you find out right away) but I'm the type who likes possessiveness in manga and he is so possessive of her. Read the prequel to get more about Kanoko's personality and the beginning of romance with Tsubaki (there is less romance in the prequel, I think the mangaka mentions that)
Anyways, I love, love, love this manga!

I am biased i admit... but I love the main character so much. Her spunk and attitude paired with unintentional friendliness and cuteness ---- I'm defeated. <3

She's a great character to read about, and i'd love to be her friend in real life smile

I have been reading manga since 2011- and I mean, pretty nonstop. I have read it all. Fairy Tail, Skip Beat, Maid Sama, Gauken Alice- you name it, I've read/watched/heard of it all. And in all of my otakuness, I can say with certainty that is is my favorite manga ever. I love it to the extent that I created a category for it on Fanfiction. The only problem is the infrequent updates. It

Naedoko just wants to be a refreshing shojo girl like her best friend, Momo. Tsubaki just wants Naedoko to notice him. The rest of the student body wants him to leave her alone so they can admire him in peace. That's right- this wonderful manga centers around the two least suited people for shojo ever. And that's what makes this manga so great.

Naedoko is cynical. She's a genius. She's insightful. She also happens to be completely oblivious to her own love life. Being that she has a tomboy figure and wears glasses, one would think the obliviousness wouldn't be a problem.

However, the ever handsome, ever popular Tsubaki doesn't really care. He has liked Naedoko since middle school, when she transferred into his class (and Momo's) for a few weeks. She doesn't care how hot he is. She also doesn't take his aloofness- she sees right through him and he fell in love with her. Though he is completely obvious, Naedoko, and the vast majority of the student body fail to see it. Only a couple of hilarious supporting characters understand both his love and her appeal.

Altogether, this manga is amazing. Despite the fact that Naedoko is, as I said, completely oblivious to Tsubaki's shallow attempts to get her to see him, it doesn't get old. The fact that they are best friends also adds to the mix. It is so refreshing to read shojo mangas without shojo heroines. Naedoko is the girl who makes fun of the helpless, innocent, typical shojo characters. Tsubaki so naturally loves such a strange, but secretly cute, girl without any forcing of emotions on the author's part.

I don't know how else to describe this masterpiece. It perfectly meshes comedy, drama, and romance into a perfect mix that doesn't over or underdo any of the three. Each and every character is unique and has a background, whether they are part of the story for three pages, three chapters, or three years. This manga is a definite read- I can't stress that enough. Now, stop reading this and start reading KDAD!
