From Lucia Rose:
Amane Mikiko, better known as Mikki, is an elementary school student who moves a lot and has to transfer schools often. As soon as she makes friends, she has to painfully say goodbye to them. She is determined to not make any new friends at her new school, but it doesn't exactly go her way. Especially when she meets a boy with the head of a cat! But hold on, he only looks like that in her eyes?

Cute, plotless story   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

The premise of this story is so funny and cute that it makes up for some of the faults. There's not much plot, not much seriousness and virtually no drama despite the *many* love triangles. I'm not even sure of the purpose of most of the love triangles as a few were literally mentioned in passing and many were never relevant plot-wise. I guess one was used for humour.

In terms of characters, Amane is refreshing in some ways but also ridiculously dense, though this is partially explained by her age; rather than her being clueless about romance, it's more like her friends are too knowledgeable. There are too many 'Amane looking cheerful and sparkling' drawings. Nekota is super nice and sweet. She gets her period for the first time during the course of the story, and rather than being 'eww' when her pad leaks at the beach, he helps her out by giving her his shirt to cover up the blood. I'll note though that these kids are desperately in need of sex ed (Amane asks her mother what is on her underwear and has no idea about periods... I'm unsure whether this was an attempt at humour or whether kids are really given no education on this topic in Japan...).

Overall it was a nice, light, cute story that failed in some aspects but won in others. I had trouble deciding on a rating due to the fact that there were many good points but also some prominent faults - ultimately I gave it 8.0 because it left me wih an positive impression and I think it succeeded at being the type of manga it was trying to be.

I also want to thank the scanlators of this manga for their fast releases!

... was a "no-show". I thought the author would properly let us see everything as of his facial features. But, nope! It remained faithful since the beginning. So there were only glimpses.

The manga is really good, light-hearted and refreshing, nevertheless.

The story of the manga revolves around Mikiko Amane, an elementary-school girl who has transferred schools many times. Because of this, she stopped making friends or getting deeply involved with people, since she knew she would move again soon. She had lived her life with a cool and uninterested personality, but at her new school, she meets a boy with a cat face! She's so interested in him, she just can't help herself.

I've come to love this manga so much not because it has a handsome male lead but for its amazing plot. I mean come on, Nekota's face is literally a cat how can a girl fall in love with that. But his actions speak louder than words for me.

Miki the heroine is strong, innocent and determined. She's unlike any typical shoujo leads who are weak, cry babies and fickle minded.

Seriously I've never read such interesting manga before.. It's fresh and original.. I cannot count how many times this made my heart skip a beat...

I love love love it!!!!!!!
