There's parts of this manga that I really like, and makes me want to keep reading. Then there's other parts I just feel really uncomfortable around. For one just let me say that most of the story is great. The main couple and even the secondary couple are really charming (most of the time) and the thing has a great sense of pacing. Very rarely does it feel like the manga is wasting my time. However some stuff is just kinda uncomfortable. Like later on when a high school girl is kinda forced to live with a guy in his 30's and we're supposed to think it's cute or romantic when he starts sexually assaulting her. I know the age gap thing in Japan is perceived differently than here in America. I know the age of consent is lower. That still doesn't make any of these scenes less weird, and stuff like this kinda just ruins a manga for me.

Still the rest of the story is good stuff. Nothing crazy special but I feel like there's little touches like the main characters not being your completely stereotypical personalities that make this readable. Heck the stuff I found disagreeable is totally subjective, maybe you'll be more ok with it than I was.

Started off as a light cute shounen-type romance, but has devolved into typical creepy josei (yes I know it's technically seinen as it runs in Gekkan Young). All the josei tropes so many find repellent are there; the maudlin backstories to explain loutish, rude behavior, emo posturing disguised as character development, statutory rape by boorish older men presented as romance, etcetera...

This story would have been infinitely better had Saki stuck with the original characters.

Takagi's girlfriend is hilarious with her naivete to, well, everything. She may be borderline annoying, but it seems the author isn't making her a complete idiot, emphasized only when a punchline is needed.

Agreed, this is nice for a light read.

What i can say, all the love comedy that the autor wanted to show on smash,
its in this manga (so it seems).

Its not a bad thing...actually is kinda nice, but i can see similarities in the mangas.
Like the girl has the same personality has the main character of Smash,
or like the boy has the same as the same personality as the friend of the main character on smash.

Not new... Not refreshing...But for a light read its ok.
