I kind of agree with .kaii from a couple of comments below. I liked the plot but I thought it wasn't that interesting when you kept on reading. I didn't think manga that funny and It just got cliche. On the plus side, I liked the pace of the story. Overall it was an ok manga. I just felt that the story wasn't executed properly.

Yeah, it's one of those stereotypical comedy/ecchi/romance shonen manga... but that isn't always a bad thing. The story played out pretty well, almost the entire cast of characters is easily likable, and every chapter was a joy to read. Basically, If you can look past the flaws and just read for the enjoyment, you'll definitely come out ahead. Have fun reading!

The end of Chapter 8 was the crowning moment of awesome for me, I love Mayu so much during this story's run.

The art is decent.
Story plot develops great as character development and the story flows smooth. (well-paced,not dragged)
Indeed, the comedy genres and ecchi are great when matched well.

Overall, good past-time manga to read.

i red it and it almost like to-love-ru even the main character looks like rito to me. all of those uryaa thing reminds me Love College and Pretty Face. the ecchi-ness is near to expose mostly breasts lol there are some underneath but obstacle in the way(u know). i love to-love-ru drawings at best but this manga fitted very well.

I want to first begin by saying that the art was great.
That said, for a harem manga, this is certainly above average in my book. The art is a win, the characters are a win but it ts a bit like a combination between He Is My Master and, as someone said before, KissXSis.
With a relatively short length, it makes for good rainy day reading material. It keeps to the point with bits of humor tucked in.
But I don't recommend it to fans who don't already like harem; it will probable put out those who are unenlightened in the ways of harem.
Not much more to say. it was short and enjoyable but a bit cliche. And a bit disturbing if you think of it in a real life situation.

Shallow, unoriginal, boring.

The conflict isn't interesting, it's solved with so little development, pure fanservice... I dropped this manga after trying to get through 15 chapters - falling short at 13. The humour isn't funny, the characters are shallow, the development is little at best. There's nothing to say about it, apart from the fact that it's bad.

The type of manga you read when there's nothing else to do, and it's just there. Even so, in those conditions, I couldn't get through it.

Ayu Mayu is mediocre in the beginning but as you read through the manga, you will slowly get addicted. A good manga to pass the time or a great read when you're really in the mood for a light romantic comedy with lots of fan service.

Pretty good =)

Art is good but the motion not really that good.
At start i thought it would be a little funny but turn quickly around the same idea (love a sister ?). But quickly some new char appear and the comedy start to be really good =)
In the final chapter i laught almost at each page, i can't stop to remember those funny moment.
So in final i give a 10 cuz it's one of the most funny manga i saw for so long.
Ah and i really love story about forbidden love, but don't mistake, here it's a comedy, there is no place for such serious matter bigrazz
Worth reading if you search a light comedy with some romance and without a solid story xD

A really funny romance manga that doesn't get annoying b/c of indecisiveness. Contrary to some earlier comments, the characters are pretty unique, especially Yusuke. Normally you would get a weak and annoying pushover character as the main hero. But not in this case at all... Check it out for yourself.
