this is the first josei that i have read without any smut!! <i hate smut> i really like the plot and the characters are really lovable too!! its nice once in a while too see heroines who are not wearing school uniforms and relationships not inside the campus but in the real world...

the downside is the ending is pretty open...but hell in onemanga they only have 9 chap so i thought that it actually ended that way <Iku with Natsuko> so thank goodness for MU for the chap update!!! i really doubt that Iku will get tired of Sakura...their a great couple..

im giving this a 9 because it was short wouldve got a 10 if it was longer...

I really loved this manga. I'm a big fan of Wataru Yoshizumi and this series did not disappoint. She is quite good at writing Josei mangas smile
I wish it was longer though....

it's a nice josei! the story isn't too dry, and the artwork
is eyecandy. it has one of those auras, that it starts off
as a sweet and innocent story but it slowly changes into
a little drama here and there. I'm at the latest** chapter and
I can sense a storm's a-brewing...
I highly recommend this for shoujo/josei/Wataru Yoshizumi lovers.

First off, I'm a dude! Why would I be reading this? 'Cuz I had nothing to do.

Seriously!! It is a good josei manga. I like the art, easy to the eyes (not too girly, when the art is too girly I don't read it). The way the story is progressing is perfectly fine. I like a story with a b*tch ex coming back..

I loved the art and I also liked the flow of the story. It seemed quite real, not just some embellised idealised romance sprincked with clichees, it really felt like a slice of life. Also I appreciated the ending which was optimistic, but also took into consideration the hardships along the way and even the possibility of a break. This is definitely not a wishy washy romance, but a story that could very fell take place in the real life.

Great story and highly enjoyable. I would have liked the series to be longer so the characters could have developed more, but it is great as it is (aka I was not disappointed by the ending).

I rated this one a 9.5 because I felt it could have been slightly longer.

I loved it. It was mature, yet retained a slightly-shoujo cuteness to it. The heroine is a funny, ordinary woman who happens to be a mangaka. The guy is a doctor but awfully blunt with his words! Every character was interesting to me, be it their character quirks (heroine's ex-bf, her materialistic friend, the doctor).

I liked that she was ordinary. It means that I could relate to her. She's not some super-strong female lead and yet she's not a weakling as well. She's trying her best to do her work, and hopes to be successful one day. Isn't that what we're striving for in life as well?

As for the romance factor, yes, it wasn't overt "I love youuu!" but there was development in their relationship. At first they were just acquaintances, and over time they grew to appreciate and love each other for who they were, even with their quirks.

Maybe my rating for this one is too magnanimous, but it definitely has some very strong points that play a role in that: the fact that it's a true Josei, dealing with a group of working women in their mid to late-twenties, the fact that it deals with the mangaka profession extensively making it very interesting for manga readers, the fact that the romance in it is very (almost too) grounded, meaning that it has a very adult take of slowly coming to appreciate each other and lastly that it lacks any cheese or unnecessary fluff. Its only drawback (albeit a huge one), is that it is very rushed towards the end. There are a few loose ends (regarding secondary characters) and the main couple too gets a rather open-ended (but quite satisfying) ending. All in all I don't regret reading this. It didn't keep me on my toes and the ending wasn't as good as I would have liked, but it is definitely cute, unique, informative and it adds something to the genre.

At first the characters seem a little dull but they develop a lot more a few chapters in to the story and it becomes quite a realistic, down-to-earth, and enjoyable read ^_^
