From Aerandria Scans:

Ryuu, a super-businesslike transfer student from England--with black hair, and blue eyes just arrived! During the night of the Tanabata festival, Ryuu and Yukino became attracted to each other at first sight. He then declares, “You will be mine!” This brought confusion to Yukino, who has zero experience in love. But could she actually be falling in love?

If you like stories where the guy is constantly trying to force the girl when she's not ready, with her peers and mom facilitating this kind of abuse, I guess you'll like this. If you can forget the fact that in real life this would all constitute emotional abuse, peer pressure, and sexual assault, then you will find the rest of it cute and romantic.

It's kinda surprising how series like This get so much love and praise. First of all, I didn't like Ryuu whatsoever. He is disrespectful, forceful and on the verge of abusive. He CONSTANTLY is trying to get at Yukino, even though she's made it clear she's not ready. picks the lock to her room and gets on top of her While she's sleeping, backs her against the wall and holds her down while shoving his hand up her shirt, saying he's gonna prepare her little by little. and threatens to "make love" to her as punishment for acting unknowningly flirty around his bodyguard.

...And yet Edward Cullen's labeled an abusive boyfriend.O.o go figure.

Yukino's an good character. I like how she defends herself against Ryuu Though sadly...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She does give into him in the end. by her choice due to Circumstances. of course. *Rolls Eyes*

Plus her mom is an lousy mom! O__o what kind of mom just allows an stranger into her home and gladly wants him and Yukino to fool around? she also chastises Yukino for protecting herself and not gladly giving herself to Ryuu! someone call CPS on her ass!

Besides the relationship is rushed, they never go on dates or anything. plus not much drama or obstacles for them to overcome.

Tora, Ryuu's bodyguard was actually my favorite <3 He was likable, adorable, respectable & would have made an better boyfriend than Ryuu >.>

The Art's nice but not enough to save this. i don't recommend this at all.

I read one chapter and felt it waaaay too generic. The inexperienced (and violent) girl stuck with a clingy foreigner. I am really tired of the belief (or could it be a novelty?) that kissing is no big deal to Westerners. And that we greet others with a kiss on the lips (with tongue sometimes!).

The art was okay and the story a bit fluffy. Someone mentioned overused clichés told from a new angle to make them fresh, well they're still clichés. And painful ones at that. I should not expect depth from shoujo manga. But if your looking for some fluffy romance (which I have nothing against I suppose), then I would suggest this title.

I admit that I started this story just because of the beautiful cover, and not expecting much of the plot as I've been finding myself reading an endless supply of plotless ones. The first chapter was kinna boring but it gradually got me hooked.

it story has great protagonists, funny side characters (I especially love Toko and the girl's mom), and a straightforward plot that doesn't have too much drama.

i recommend this for anyone who feel like reading a light manga with no complications.

Mitsuki Kako.

Kako is one of my favorite mangakas of all time. I love all of her works. Kiss/Hug and Ai Hime - Ai to Himegoto being my favorite by her and also a part of my top 20 mangas list. She's brilliant.

The romance is so real and beautiful, the characters are amazing (no annoying heroines and competent, handsome and lovable guys), the storyline is fantastic, it moves at a great pace, loose ends are tied up and they're remarkably happy.

I cry in these mangas. If the heroine is sad, I'm usually sad because they aren't whiny girls. Even if something dramatic lasts for only a page or two I'm usually pouring my eyes out like a bloody fool. It's that kind of story, you get used to the happy moments and suddenly the world is turned upside down.

But the characters are mature and handle things well, it's fantastic. I'm not just speaking of this story in particular, I'm speaking of all of Kako's works.

Read all of them, you'll revisit them again and again, but no matter how many times you read them that sensation you get when they kiss for the first time, confess for the first time, cry for the first time, have sex for the first time and when the ending comes will be like reading it for the first time.

It's brilliant, I love Kako and I can't wait for more mangas from her!

This story is DEFIANTLY not confusing and so far of this mangaka, kiss/hug is my favorite work of her. The storyline I find is good enough, the characters really good, the man very dreamy like of how you'd want your boyfriend...mature yet playful and very jokingly around. I love it and at the end of every chapter, I'm always looking forward to more! The art is also gorgeous! Always a plus for art.

But yeah...I think the story will be a sad ending which I'm defiantly not interested on that part. I'm not sure it will be, but she the girl seems to be talking about the past and there's some foreshadowing you'll see to think it is. If I find out it being a sad/not well ending then I just don't think I will read any further cause I don't want to be hurt by it. Though endings like that do work out because it's what makes the story good and original! Not all stories can have a happy ending. But idk, I guess well just see.

This series was definitely not what I was expecting, but I have to say that I absolutely loved it. It isn't often that I have heroines that I adore but Yukino is just sooo darn cute. She is sweet and has a little sass to her. Ryuu was hot as hell. They made a wonderful couple. Yay there was no love triangle. It gets hard to read manga in every shoujo there is a love triangle and I feel so bad for the one that isn't picked. It was nice just to have a series that focuses on the love between the two characters without any ridiculous obstacles in the way. It's a nice change of pace. This story is definitely a MUST READ.

I really liked. There was a lot of character growth and development, but it bothered me a little that everyone was pushing the female lead into doing more with her boyfriend, stuff she honestly wasn't comfortable with yet. But it was a realy good and i enjoyed reading it.

When I first read the manga, she said this:
There's another guy who would call me by my first name. He's already gone, three years ago- when he was sixteen.

I was rather worried, since I'm the kind that hates anti-climatic, sad and tragic endings. I've seen enough of it with people around me in real life.

When Aerandria and Midnight Scans released the last volume, I was glad. Not to spoil it for anyone, I'll say no more about what happens.

The plot was a tad on the cliche side, but it is saved by a determined heroine who wants to stand on her two feet. The art was nice, too.
It's a sweet read for those who are in long distance relationships, or to those who have just broken up.
Maybe there is hope for love after all, just not in my case. :X
