Description
From Yen Press:
When fifteen-year-old Kaho Nikaidou leaves her sheltered home to start life anew in a Tokyo high school dormitory, the last thing she expects is to nearly get hit by a truck! Saved in the nick of time by a handsome stranger, Kaho falls head over heels for him and, after finally tracking him down, boldly confesses her feelings. Turns out Kaho’s mystery savior, Kanade, is the son of Kaho’s new landlord! The handsome object of Kaho’s affection agrees to go out with her, but her newfound bliss is short-lived when it turns out that her new boyfriend…is a fifth-grader?

One of the WORST

God, this was one of the worst manga I've read in a long, long time. Some notes:

1) Kaho was irritatingly self-pitying to the point of being possibly suicidal 2) NO explanation was given for three separate fifth graders having the physique of grown men 3) Kaho moves into an apartment and on the very first day of living there she gets verbally and almost sexually assaulted by another tenant, yet still continues to live there and talks to him??

The author says at the end of the volume that this was her very first attempt at drawing a shoujo manga. And that's painfully clear after reading this.

In conclusion stay far far away from this absolute trash heap of poorly executed manga.

Beautiful art though

I'd first have to comment on how beautiful the art is, maybe that's because of how much screen tones the artist put in.
For the story, It's interesting seeing these less used character tropes, such as; spoiled yet ashamed of themselves, elementary student love interest, that kid that looks like he got held back too many times, and age gap that doesn't look like an age gap.
In my own opinion with parts of the story, I enjoyed reading it being that the entire manga feels like all my middle school fazes wrapped up in cute art and hot boys.

Looks Interesting

I found this via Anime News Network, whose reviewer had the same moralistic reaction to it as, apparently, a bunch of people did here. Luckily, it's being scanlated and translated commercially. Manga delights in unusual relationships, for the simple reason that they create good and sometimes startling stories. That appears to be the case here, and I'm looking forward to more of this odd story. Extreme moralism narrows your world view, people!
