I wouldn't really care about the age gap much if she wasn't nearly a legal pedophile.

The age issue made me squirm a bit while reading it, but despite that this is a great manga that put a smile on my face almost all the way through. Really sweet and cute.

I absolutely love this manga! I may be biased, seeing how I actually enjoy the category "Older Female Younger Male" - ah! But I don't like those hentai, ecchi, yaoi, shotacon types... this manga totally fit my needs. The male protagonist Fuuma is so cute. He is very intelligent and mature; however, being only ten years old, he can't help but incidentally show his childish side to his fiance. He's very kind and caring to her, and you can obviously see he really loves her. He's truly going to grow up a wonderful man. And his fiance Sakoto is very sweet. Although she's completely against the arranged marriage at first, as she spends more time with Fuuma and realizes just how great of a young man he is, she slowly falls for him. I seriously love all the scenes they have together, whether it be Fuuma or Sakoto blushing at each other to when they become jealous~ everything is so heartwarming. Plus, it doesn't just focus on Fuuma and Sakoto, this manga also pays attention to subordinate characters too! And their stories are so cute as well. I just seriously wish the manga could be longer! At least a sequel! I wanna see Fuuma all grown up! >.<

I loved this story, I really did.
It actually made me cry! Totally worth the time.
I'm very fond of Older female - Younger male mangas, they are really fun to read. But either way, I find this story a bit better than Merupuri(At least it's a bit more realistic). Anyhow I really love Fuuma, you can tell he really does love and care for Satoko, plus his way of thinking is amazing!
This manga really left a print on me and I hope the following readers will like it too!

the first time I stumbled upon this manga, I was a scanlation virgin. A girl 7 years older than the guy, that is so wrong. That's what I thought. After all a while, I decided to read the manga, and it has been one of my all time favorite shoujo manga. I don't know what to say, except just go read it already! You won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this manga it reminded me a bit of Kimi wa Boku no Mono except there is no obstacles other than the age difference. Although the art is nothing to brag about it was cute at times. What could have made this one better was to have speed up a few years ahead and show wether or not they at least make progress. Overall though i cannot complain, although i myself enjoy the same age or older male character with the heroine the fact that his mind was so mature it left me satisfied.

If I could sum up this whole manga in one word it would be 'unfocused'. There's a few times when I was a bit confused as to what was going on, and the plot just kind of meandered about. Sure it's cute but it's unfortunately not very interesting.

Satoko (16) lives with her mother and there is a large debt they have to pay. Her mother decided to take the offer of an arranged marriage for Satoko. They both move to the house (mansion) of Satokos future (rich) husband. But her to-be husband, Fuuma, is now only 10 years old. This sweet slice of life manga shows us their everyday life and the beginning of their love.

Although the story seems unoriginal, the storytelling was done very well.

Art is simple, I don't think I found some panel badly drawn. The anatomy is good, the faces are beautiful, it was easy to tell the characters apart, but there weren't that many. The art is kind of sketchy. Actually it had that kind of art I like the most. But I can't give it a 10, because there wasn't really much drawn. Simplicity at it's best.

Satoko is a nice girl, optimistic, a bit of an airhead. I wouldn't say she was clumsy or stupid. She cared for people and wanted everyone to be happy. Kind of reminded me of Tohru from Furuba. You can't really hate her.
Fuuma, a 10 years old boy was quite unrealistic. He didn't act his age, but there were times he did. These were enjoyable. He was flustrated he is younger that Satoko. That made him even younger, lmao. You can't really hate him either.
Although I did hate her mother a bit....... Well, nothing's perfect.

I actually ate every page. Not literally. Couldn't stop reading. It was like made for me. Even the idea of an arranged marriage wasn't that horrible. It was really cute and sweet and I couldn't help but smile all the time I was reading it. Definitely something to read when you are down.
