Read this series if you want love and comedy. Omg it's so funny I love it! Erika is one of my favorite female characters and her story becomes the spotlight of the manga sort of. It's just so uplifting and pure and funny! Wow I love it.

This manga is soooo awesome...The big brother is sooooo likeable..
I can't even remember not laughing and smiling whenever i read this manga...
Kenji's different faces and expressions are truly hilarious..I'm even starting to fall in love with him.
He may not be honest but he's sweet and caring in his own way..
Please continue to translate this..
It truly is a gem!!!!!!

I got irritated that the manga only had three chapters released that I went and watched the drama (yes people there is a drama with a lot of table flipping (literally check it out)).

So far, the manga is sooo hilarious and just so lovable. It's a sweet manga without much worry or drama in it so it's a good read if your feeling the need for a laugh. I'd definitely give this a try smile

I don't want to say too much based on just the two scanlated chapters, but I have to say I enjoyed what was available very much. The art's not to my taste, a little plain and somehow deformed-looking, but I'm not the kind of person who's too picky about that as long as the story is good, and it definitely seems promising here.

It's funny of course - I love the little things, such as the way the main character has her brother listed as "that jerk" in her cell phone - but it also hints towards deeper things, or at least I'm hoping. The brother does seem like a jerk, but you can also see the caring for his sister that underlies his unbearable overprotectiveness, and the two looming romances have a lot of potential, especially the amusing state of the relationship between Erika and Kenji.

Anyway, I won't read too much into it at this point, but I'm looking forward to new chapters and expecting more of this unique, hilarious manga than just a run-of-the-mill love story shoujo.

Woohoo, another chapter from the people of good taste, Ivyscan! biggrin
I can't recall laughing so hard at a manga like this - it's been a while. I love all the characters in this manga, it's just so dynamic and fun!
As for the artwork, I think I'm in the minority when I say I prefer this over some CLAMP nonsense. No, I don't think CLAMP or mangaka of the CLAMP school draw beautiful manga. Then again, my favorite mangaka is Anno Moyoco who has also been criticized for having "rough, ugly work". All you can say in situations like this is to each their own and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I find the scratchy artwork original and a feast to the eyes. There's just something indescribable about it. It almost has a graphic-design feel to it.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next chapter. It's so different looking at raws and then reading what they have to say - a whole new perspective. ^_^

Aruko is the best!! I just love her stuff. And this one is the funniest one I've EVER read. SO entertaining, like ha-ha hilarious that makes you fall out of your chair laughing. It's so cute too!!! Not one of those annoying, weepy shoujos with love triangles that never end and all these stupid dramatic moments. The plot here moves fast and it's full of surprises. I just finished ch.2 and I can't wait to read more!

Sometimes it takes a volume or three to decide how much I like a series. Sometimes a chapter is all I need to know I love a manga. This is one of the latter. The characters are incredibly hilarious and the artwork is a perfect match, fun and lighthearted, adorable when it needs to be but offering a full range of expressions suitable to its former-gang-member characters. The story seems original and a lot of fun. Aruko gives me the impression of an experienced mangaka who knows how to write a story, not just connect a string of shoujo-manga plot-devices and decorate with pretty faces. I'm so glad to finally have a chance to read this series!!
