This manga is more or less lacked explain a lot. Even more, he did not tell his secret ... The characters were nothing captivating and the story, well that was also wrapped very boring.

this manga is just insane. i love how sensei can build up a seeming genuine love story and plot line and then throw it all away on a whim for the sake of comedy. BLESS YOU SENSEI. keep breaking those shoujo hearts!

Why do I love this so much? I have no idea but God I love it. It's so funny too, I laughed my bum off reading this, the main guy is just too cute. I really hope they finish scanlating this because it's worth it!

Should have been a oneshot

The beginning feels disconnected, sort of like someone counting 1,3,5, and leaving you to wonder what happened to 2 and 4. I sort of expected this to be cute, but the way the story is being told, it isn't that at all. I found myself wishing it wasn't so long. I think it would have been a wonderful oneshot.

The manga is not bad, but it feels like it could have been so much better, especially in how the story is presented. While reading it, I couldn't help but be reminded of the annoying selfish characters from Boku to Kanojo no XXX, the whole all men are hormone crazy with absolutely no virtues really rang a bell. If you liked Boku to Kanojo no XXX, there is a high chance you'll like this.

i laugh so much that my stomach hurt. i am up to ch16 with the scantalator and there is never a boring moment here. the route is still too hazy so it is fun ttrying to guess which one he will end up with. i really like the protagonist, i dont know why people think he is annoying, just because he is not the usual mysterious handsome shoujo lead. i really like this weakling who cry and doubt himself because as a butt of the joke he is so much fun. all the other characters are also super fun, i dont hate anyone in this manga,(even the rapist, cos she add a more crueler kick to this guy who had been kicked by the fate alot.)

all in all, a very very funny manga.


just finished this manga and it is as fun as i read the first time. i just love the way the relationships developed in this manga, there might not be fairy tale love, but it sure is interesting. there is no definite ending, and i like it that way.

It's alright, but I really hate how the author handles rape. :/ The
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"he's male, so it's not really rape because all guys love sex all the time right??? HILARIOUS!!"
thing is disgusting. If you can ignore that this manga is cute. Sort of, anyway. There's nothing outstanding about this one to be honest.

This manga is truly funny, the male lead is annoying , the ending is unsatisfying, but the most i didin't like how the characters acted awful or unrealistic in many situation. well simply put this is a fairy tale for little girls biggrin as it is supposed to be and it does it pretty well.

I really don't know whether to love or to hate this one. It is so hilarious, if you don't take the topic of being ugly or not too serious. Sometimes I burst into laughter just to find that it's actually also kind of sad^^ However, this manga will give you a lot of fun!
The main character is a little annoying, but it's all right. When he's beautiful and still such a crybaby he's actually almost a little cute. Some of the other character are rather clichée, like the teacher (one of those typical smut-teachers), which is really funny and could be seen as some kind of a parody xD
After a while this manga seems to develop into a harem, However... i don't like harems normally, but this one's somehow different.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
It feels more like a love triangle, with two girls loving the boy, but the boy clinging to another girl...
And you can't figure out with whom he will end up...
In the end I'm really happy that I gave this a try.

I really dislike this manga, but also like it at the same time. For every character you hate, you get a character you like.

Have to say for pairings, I'm liking the "sister" since she seems the only one genuinely in love.

i pretty much love all of morinaga's works, mostly because they're hilarious and don't follow the lines of normal shoujo manga but are AWESOME regardless.
only problem is, i can only find up til vol. 3 chapter 9. i hope the groups starts translating it again ><
