From Aerandria Scans:

Serika is your typical high school girl. She loves reading books, likes romance, and has the ability to knock a guy flat out with her fist. She imagines herself as one of those heroines she reads in books, a shining maiden waiting for her prince. But what happens to her dream when the prince she has been waiting for is not only younger than her, but also smaller? Will the princess accept the chibi prince?

this manga was super refreshing. they are both such mature characters who are in such an emotionally healthy relationship. there is no obsessive jealousy and when ever one of them is feeling inscure the other can tell with out them saying anything and immediately does everything to help their partner feel more assured. its a manga that has smut in it but isn't smutty. it was adorable. loved it. i awed more times than i could count. the only possible reason i can imagine someone would give this manga a low rating is maybe the art? it is a very simplistic art style. i liked it but the art isent to much of a big deal for me in general anyways

I loved how this story was NOT your usual smutty shoujo story, although it was still sexy. The girl is strong, not stupid (Even works in the library, and loves books), and when events actually take place, she has proper emotions and a very realistic thought process on the way she handles things.
The boy is not a b*stard (and yet still pretty perverted, but without going to much overboard, so even some non-smut fans would enjoy this)
And if anything, this story seems like an observational guide to a a healthy romantic realationship, which does not have the constant threat of the couple breaking up, or other popular gimmics, but it still enforces an intresting plot, which is very captivating and more then a little interesting.
There is no cheap cliched tricks that are done in many other mangas over and over again, and even when you suspect a cliche, you will be pleasently surprised! I very much enjoyed this manga, and I found it very refreshing. Who knew a complient relationship could also become so sexy?
The only con I could point out, is that the art at the stat has extremly girly looking men, but towards the ending of the manga, the art is much better with a more mature hand.

It isnt as horrible as many reviewers make out to be, its like a smut manga with a bit more vague drawings than they usually are.It starts wth a cliched
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I-Love-my-older-sisters-boyfrn to a more suitable guy around her age. But after she gets over her previous crush.
The characters become easy going and u escape all the odd inhibitions of innumerable shoujos that make one grind their teeth in enormous frustration. For those, who r lookin for deep, hiccuping relationship saga (u guys must LOOOVE soap operas) this isnt for u, but those who like fast progressing funny, dont-think-too-much mangas, this is fun..i wil giv ths an 8 not only to boost the rating but also to pinpoint the fact, that more shoujos need to loosen up and this one is one of the flagships...

Sorry, but I have to totally disagree.
It's a terrible manga, probably one of the worst I've ever read.
The art's terrible, the storyline's been over-used a thousand times, and the characters are simply not believable.
However, I'll give it a 3 rating, because:
a) No manga deserves a 1 or 2 rating unless it looks completely horrible
b) The cover was actually sorta pretty(unfortunately the manga art wasn't)
c) It's been scanlated, so I guess someone out there is appreciating this manga.

the manga is....ok. its something you would read if you really had no time. the character development is somewhat nonexistent. i kno its too early to comment, but i wouldn't read it if the 2nd chapter was released.
