From Serenus-Dreamers:

After losing their parents, Fumino and her brother hop from one relative to another. Getting tired of all those moves, she finally decides to quit school and work to support her brother on her own. As they sat on a park bench, her teacher appears in front of her and agrees to her demands of marrying and supporting both her and her brother!! Is he serious or just playing around...?!


Also contains the oneshot, Tsukio to Himawari, in vol. 1.
Asahi-kun is a carefree junior-high student, never attaching to girls even though he enjoys going with them. But when the school's number 1 honor student Mitsuki "cyborg" Konno asked him to a 1-month date, in exchange for the front row ticket to his favorite singer's concert, he was forced to accept. He only has to show her what it feels like to date, right? He is ready for that...however, what he's not prepared for was his heart's reaction...

What? I was with this manga for a long time, well not as looooong as one piece and skip beat, but ended already? I thought the rumors weren't too, so I took a break from reading this manga. Then after viewing it again it's COMPLETE? I thought there were more developments to come. Anyway, I'm still giving it an 8 for all the times I spent with this one. It's still a pretty good one.

Its took a year for me to wait this manga to be completed scanned. And its worth waiting...
The story flows naturally... The comedy, The friendship, The loves and The brotherhood.... Its a lil bit complex.

I like how kazuma care about teppei and fumino. And those unexpected persons who came after their life...

The end of story of this manga was so sweet.... Huaaaaa.... and make me wonder what its like if i'm being fumino... hehehe....

One thing that make me upset... both of them not yet doing their first night together.... I know that its impossible, since this manga's genre just rate Shoujo. Not smut...

ANd for all those thing.... i give rating this manga 9 out of 10

I'm being pretty bias about my rating, but I don't care! I love it. This is totally a slice of life, obviously you shouldn't expect anything too drastic early in the plot. I like how it progresses and slowly builds up the tension until it just totally smacks you in the face with something unexpected, but not completely out know? And I love Ojiro sensei. I wish there was a guy like him who could be so adorable and yet so cool in a sexy way, at his age. Haha.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I actually liked how they didn't kiss up until the last chapter despite what others say. It gave that moment a very special feeling and that's when you know that in that very moment, they'll definitely be together forever.

I was squealing like a fat pig over that..but then I wanted more.. .___."

I'm pretty sad that I won't be able to see much more of their life afterwards, hopefully there is some kind of sequel with Teppei as the protagonist. He has an interesting personality for a child, I'm just curious about what he would be like when he's older.. wink

Boring, boring boring. Every time anything happens it ends with Sensei giving her a hug but never giving her anything else and this just keeps going on over and over. If you likes stagnant slice of life romantic comedy with very little in the way of comedy then this is for you but you should really just get a life.

The worst part is I like the characters quite a lot but I can't get over watching the exact same thing happening every other chapter.

I'm liking the latest chapters. I'm a sucker for these sweet romances, especially, you know, when they actually get to the romantic part. The beginning was cute and all but it was kind of annoying at first, I actually like the characters better after they fell in love. It's sweet to see them, and I love the relationship between the two once they actually do get started, because they complement each other, like I love the patient smile Kazuma gives when Fumino starts crying for whatever reason. I think it's sweet smile It's... a nice break from the relationships I usually encounter, where the male lead's facial expression of love looks the same as his facial expression when he's bored. It's nice to see the male lead just as undone by the female lead as vice versa which is usually the case.

I love it from the beginning (as I have with MOST of the mangas I read), but the cliche plot devices irks me. I juts had to drop it since it got too BORING. Too bad, since I do love the characters T.T (then again, I don't really like long mangas, the only ones I can stand is Skip Beat and Ouran High). Read if you have all the time you need and the patience *waiting* for the latest chapters (which I hate), although it can't be helped (I still thank the awesome people that gives me the power to actually comment on this manga biggrin)...

This series is one of my absolute faves =] I LOVE this series. Ma-kun and Bun-chan are absolutely adorable!! They're so cute together and I can't wait to see how they end up.

The story is so cute and so is the artwork. I love practically all the characters. They all make the story what it is and I can't imagine it without any one of them. Sigh I want this to hurry and come to a conclusion, but at the same time I don't want their story to end either lol I wish someone would make it into an anime or a live action/drama. I would love to see how they are portrayed on screen :-)

Finally finished it! I'm so sad. I loved them and I wish I could see their whole lives played out.. And I agree that it would've been lovely to see their first time haha (let me not be smutty) loved every minute of this ;-)

I read a lot of manga simultaneously but THIS is the one manga which I really look forward to the latest chapter being scanlated. Even though it's a teacher-student story, it doesn't really feel that way. Maybe because in your head it's justified since they're "married" so they're really not much of the thrill of forbidden love but I really like it this way. Their love is just so natural, it's not really slice-of-life genre but I feel like it can get there at times. It's really fluffy yet humorous at the same time.
