This series condone adultery   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

The entire series is about cheating and adultery. MC girl or guy gets in situation that leads to possible adultery over and over again. There's constant misunderstanding and insecurity.

Not only that, the author makes rapey situations as harmless things to laugh about.

Worse, the ex-gf or ex-bf that dumped you and cheated on you, who did nothing to redeem themselves, gets forgiven and become GOOD guys in the end.

Overall, very shallow with very wrong messages about adultery and rapey situations. The worst shoujo series.

But i felt that it ended too FAST. It should and could have prolong a little bit longer, the beginning and middle portion were smooth sailing, but the ending was just a teensy bit disappointing. Nevertheless, I love her drawing, it's just how i like it ^-^, a fan of hers already.

I loved the art and I also liked the flow of the story. It seemed quite real, not just some embellised idealised romance sprincked with clichees, it really felt like a slice of life. Also I appreciated the ending which was optimistic, but also took into consideration the hardships along the way and even the possibility of a break. This is definitely not a wishy washy romance, but a story that could very fell take place in the real life.

Great story and highly enjoyable. I would have liked the series to be longer so the characters could have developed more, but it is great as it is (aka I was not disappointed by the ending).

I rated this one a 9.5 because I felt it could have been slightly longer.

I loved it. It was mature, yet retained a slightly-shoujo cuteness to it. The heroine is a funny, ordinary woman who happens to be a mangaka. The guy is a doctor but awfully blunt with his words! Every character was interesting to me, be it their character quirks (heroine's ex-bf, her materialistic friend, the doctor).

I liked that she was ordinary. It means that I could relate to her. She's not some super-strong female lead and yet she's not a weakling as well. She's trying her best to do her work, and hopes to be successful one day. Isn't that what we're striving for in life as well?

As for the romance factor, yes, it wasn't overt "I love youuu!" but there was development in their relationship. At first they were just acquaintances, and over time they grew to appreciate and love each other for who they were, even with their quirks.

Nothing special

I agree with Darknemo2000 .
After reading 2 volumes, I felt sort of 'empty'.. the story isn't really very interesting and I just read on to see if there's anything interesting but there's none.
It's lacking in the story plot and character's personality.

The art in the manga wasn't bad. In fact, it's nice. Pleasant to the eyes.
The only thing that's nice for this series .... - i guess.

Pretty Cute!

I was very intrigued of the plot synopsis and read the whole story in one sitting. It's sweet, NOT clingy (which I really really like!), and quite believable too!
Although, the twist in the end sounds a bit too good to be true (a little bit TOO arranged?), I enjoyed the series very much!
The ending wasn't quite how I thought it would end, but I'm satisfied with what I got!
This is worth a read especially if you have nothing else to do :-)

No Cheese

Maybe my rating for this one is too magnanimous, but it definitely has some very strong points that play a role in that: the fact that it's a true Josei, dealing with a group of working women in their mid to late-twenties, the fact that it deals with the mangaka profession extensively making it very interesting for manga readers, the fact that the romance in it is very (almost too) grounded, meaning that it has a very adult take of slowly coming to appreciate each other and lastly that it lacks any cheese or unnecessary fluff. Its only drawback (albeit a huge one), is that it is very rushed towards the end. There are a few loose ends (regarding secondary characters) and the main couple too gets a rather open-ended (but quite satisfying) ending. All in all I don't regret reading this. It didn't keep me on my toes and the ending wasn't as good as I would have liked, but it is definitely cute, unique, informative and it adds something to the genre.

At first the characters seem a little dull but they develop a lot more a few chapters in to the story and it becomes quite a realistic, down-to-earth, and enjoyable read ^_^

Mediocre to it's core

Very plain couple - girl doesnt have much personality, nor does the guy - their relationship is dull and not even build up properly. Ending was even more horrible. The artwork is good, but that's basically it - one cliche after another, dull characters, boring relationship - this is a mediocre manga to it's core. It is not awful but it is not goo either. Just a mediocre manga, that you should read only if you have a time to waste.
