Clumsily made

nothing extra to say about it really
Story 3/10
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(I am not professional but in this kind of job nobody would EVER consider to make the main target bodyguard to the fake target. That would be... very stupid indeed)

Art 7/10
Sleepiness 9/10

I am very happy that you have already grown up these days Takagi and dont make any of these clumsy mangas anymore smile

How Predictably Cute

This story was cute although predictable. I could tell everything that was going to happen in this story, nothing was surprising. But for some odd reason I find it adorable. It would have been even better if there was more chemistry between the two. Nachi is cool I just love her she is the type of female lead that I just love to bits.

The chemistry between the characters wasn't very well developed and the story seemed to lack direction. I dont read many oneshots but i can imagine that it would be difficult for authors to creat characters that readers can be emotionally invested in. I have found that simple yet thoughtful stories make the best oneshots. The art was just okay ( for my taste). I prefer the way Nachi was drawn to the way Iori was drawn. 5/10

Really Good!

The characters are great, their chemistry is great, and the story (while not totally a surprise) is a lot of fun! Who doesn't want to read about assassins? Plus, I love that their relationship was equal (in that she wasn't the 'weak girl who needs to be protected' and he wasn't the 'stoic and strong guy who'll protect the girl'). They protected each other, and loved each other like family even if they didn't know it.

Lovely artwork, lovely characterization. It's a good oneshot. I completely recommend it.

Predictable, but Enjoyable

I had it pegged from pretty early on what was going to end up happening. Still, it was a fun ride to get to the end. I wish there'd been a bit more fleshing out of the relationship before the end, but the action and intrigue more than made up for it. I really, really enjoyed the character of Nachi. I would love to see more shoujo with female leads like her!

Well its not ur average manga.

I'm a lil disappointed. i expected something really great from the manga because well, it had everything that some of the best mangas have.

1:the storyline by far is very interesting. handsome girl and a hot boy> kicking ass and getting shot but surviving embarrassed now thats wat i wana see in heroines smile
2:the art is exceptional. Not the prettiest, not bad at all, very cute and pretty though.
3: the whole getting one to realise their feelings was an advantage to making the manga a success but i felt it was cut dead too early.

The manga seemed.. to short and by that i actually mean it doesn't seem like the story really ended nor began. First we only have a brief idea of how they grew up together. We soon find out the chick is an illegimate child but hell what else? yea they trained together, she decided to be wid the dude but it was all so blunt and short..
The ending as well. they realise they wana be together but there isnt lets date *love is in the air* or that type but just a "lets go home" and no they dont do it, they just go home -.-

besides that its a good manga smile it was too short sad
