Okay this manga is really funny. There are so many moments when i laugh out loud and hopefully you too. The way he restrains himself from his adorable and oh so cute girlfriend (one he can't keep calling cute). He tries so hard to love her normally when all he wants to do is adore her cuteness. Man this manga made me laugh so much in just the first chapter alone.
I love protagonists like this guy. His thoughts are so random amd outrageous, and the way he reacts are funny. I love it! There isn't anything bad about him, he isn't ugly, a loser, etc, he just can't keep it together when hes in front of the girls he loves, (but he's still perverted bigrazz ). Plus the girl is really likable and her character is great too shes so innocent and not aware its so cute. (they both are so alike in several ways bigrazz ). It's great how both characters switch roles as leads in the chapters. The story really is about both of them as a couple.

All in all a really funny manga to read. with a great couple, good story, and is never boring. i hope translated scans would be released as i just started this manga. 5 chapters isnt enough sad but thanks to those who already translated some ^_^

No loser/gutless/ugly protagonist and the couple is really nice. This is pretty much about a clueless girl and a perverted but restrained guy couple that have many small problems that become more than they can imagine.

I haven't read this, I just wanted correct something on Lynkz' comment. Slice of Life is not limited to worlds and universes similar to our own. Slice of Life is a setting where the protagonist/s do not have a major goal or drama. They are simply living their lives, be it in an alien world or our own.

What Lynkz said is kind of harsh... way harsh, but I get where s/he's coming from. The art is nice, but the characters and story are really silly. How can two people be so dense. And wth is up with Take-chan. It's all so stupid I can't really get into it.. But I don't like to give up so...

There are misunderstandings that lead to humorous situations, but nothing bad really comes from them. The main male character wants to consummate his relationship with his girlfriend/fiancee, but holds himself back. That is very, very admirable when a lot of male manga characters would not show such restraint.

First up is slice of life: No, just no. Slice of life is a tag reserved for manga set in a believable universe similar to our own... there doesn't exist a girl/guy so innocent/retarded that hasn't been diagnosed with a mental disease, or so i would like to hope for the sake of humanity's future. More to say, but you should get the picture from just that much.

Comedy: Last time i checked, comedy was something that induced laughter. All this manga causes are feelings of pity for both protagonists for their surroundings and actions, and hatred towards generally all the supporting roles. The only people who would laugh at this manga are pitiful excuses of the human species who find enjoyment that, even if fabricated, there exists someone in the world more pathetic than themselves.

I actually found this manga by searching for those two specific tags so you can believe the disappointment I felt when i found it was horribly incorrectly labelled, but I'm still going to rate it impartially as the art is decent and... well, that's its only saving grace.
