From Serenus Dreamers:
Aoi - a girl who lives in a household of seven. Her current status? Poor. Masafumi, dubbed the Prince of School, lives in a mansion with a household of mostly servants and his grandparents. His current status? Rich. When Masafumi decides to throw away 40 cents which Aoi could have used, she's enraged at his action of discarding the valuable amount, and vows to never forgive him! But, what happens when fate brings Aoi to the Prince's door, in place of her mother, who is injured? Revenge? Schooling in the antics of the poor?

That is Why we Dream - Nakahara has a habit of setting things on fire, she coops herself up in the art room and never smiles..she is also a young and famous artist. While setting fire to another object, she meets a boy, who is a young and famous basketball player...why does he give her so much attention when everyone else shuns her? and why does she seem so sad while painting?

All I liked was the ending

I felt the story was boring, that I even fell asleep half-way reading the manga, which is really unexpected for me to do so =.= well it's just me. I'm just glad at the end his family reconciled and they kinda lived happily ever after. The male lead is a really quiet guy, guess I'm not used to this type of male leads...and the female lead seemed powerless and weak, sigh maybe all girls should be like that? No idea~ I don't like the author's style of drawing, that's one major point that put me down from enjoying this manga.

Starts off annoyingly mediocre, but isn't too bad

The art is immature and not too sharp for the seasoned shoujo reader, so I got really bored halfway into the first chapter. Though nothing surprising or unpredictable has happened so far, and character development seems to be very formulaic right now, I stuck on seeing all the other positive remarks about the novelty of the series.

So while this series doesn't really offer you any groundbreaking doki doki experience, it's a funny story with lots of crazy and over the top expressions and gestures from all the players in the tale, lots of nonsensical situations that the male lead's family constantly gets into and funny experiences which remind you of how Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club) appeared to the rest of the high class folks at her school.

A funny but forgettable read. More comedy and family-read than romance.

I wasn't fond of the art style and had expected this to be your usual rich prince/poor girl story, but was pleasantly surprised at the little twist and the sweet, laid-back feel. For those who are sick of a poor girl being offended at the rich boy's lack of understanding of the value of money, this will be a breath of fresh air. The "Natural Prince" title refers to Masafumi, who, despite his initial arrogant appearance, turns out to be a shy, introverted guy who'd prefer "commoner" food and lifestyle. He actually has his own veggie garden! Everything's resolved rather neatly, but it's a sweet story.

The oneshot was decent as well - a talented artist who's determined to win another art award for the sake of her family forgets the real reason she began painting. A basketball player who has gone through his own share of troubles helps her rediscover inspiration.

This manga is short and light, with a small twist to the Rich Boy stereotype and a rather nice background story. It seemed a lot more real than other shoujo stories, because of how these two families interacted with each other. I particularly fell in love with the Grandparents, they are absolutely adorable!

The story isn't the best but it doesn't dramatize the past to the point going too far and making you sad. I rather liked that, since the excess of drama in shoujo is one of the things I hate the most.

I would recommend this for passing a nice afternoon reading a light and fresh story smile

Several of the story arcs were completely unpredictable. Add that to good characters, and you have a winner.
