Everything he does pushes boundaries

And I love that! I think that Ryuta gets his motivation from doing that. There are rules in Japan about what kinds of love you can show without getting kicked into the "adult 18+" category, which cuts down the number of people who can get access to and buy your stuff. This age difference story is probably pushing it right to the edge. Hurray for him! And thank goodness, too, because I don't think a story like this could be made in the USA at all.

Most people like a little wildness in the stories they read, and this story satisfies that desire.

I like how Amazume draw girls
i cant help it
but the story is as usualy a bit odd
grown woman just dont fall in love with children[if they some of the commenters have said...its usualy bcoz they are extreamly insecure,shota or just oversexual and lust for any penis that wants to play]
this is obviously a common fantasy for young boys
so this comic knows exactly what it does and it does that pretty good

Amazume kind of feels like this eras Go Nagai
sex,sex, pointless/bad story and some more sex

The history is kinda generic, but Ryuta always make them with real tone in them, the drama still light and has moments of rage but always has a reason to be and well doing.
The history so far is good like always, and like the comment below, this real happend I have see it even I saw couples of a 21 years old dating a cool middle school cool guy. (He was my friend) the bad part usually the guy become a asshole when grow up, no really romance irl in what i have see(I saw at least 10 cases only 2 continue well). That is why this make me feel a lot better than irl, and the comedy also raise my spirit too.
And I approve the old saying of love dont have age.

That2ndGuy, whether or not you believe me, stuff like this does happen, as it's happened to me. I love this manga because I can somewhat relate to it. The daughter of my dentist (very, very attractive) started working at her dad's clinic when she was 18, I was 13 at the time, so she saw me every time I went to the dentist twice a year, and developed a crush on me. Just this year her co-worker couldn't take it anymore and played match-maker, and we're currently going out, I'm now 23 and she's 28 (she's obviously dated other guys in that time period). So it's not quite as big as an age gap as the manga (mine is 5, the manga is a 7 year gap), but like I said, it happens.

Anyways, can't wait to read more. It's by Amazume Ryuta, so I know I'll enjoy it.

I just can't fathom a beautiful adult woman falling in love with a child. Story is boring and very generic. If it wasn't for all the kids in Japan who fantasize about older women, I'd actually be surprised this got serialized.

The faces man...

Amazume Ryuta is awesome and everything but he should could learn to draw different body/hair/face styles, I mean this is exactly like Nana to Kaoru except the boy is supposedly 13... but he has the exact same haircut/body time/face as all his other protagonists...

Ignoring this complaint 10/10 like always.
