From Viz:

When Haruna Nagashima was in junior high her life consisted of playing softball and reading comics. But now that she's going to high school, Haruna decides to put all of her energy towards getting a boyfriend and having the high school romance of a lifetime. To help in her quest, she enlists cute upperclassman Yoh Komiyama to coach her as she eschews her tomboy tendencies and turns herself into the kind of girl who can catch a guy. Yoh agrees, with one catch: Haruna had better not fall for him!

If you read this really fast like 4 to 5 volumes within 1 to 2 hours and you like straight-forward manga, then this title might be for you.

Otherwise, it's a bit "empty" and rather predictable.

Furthermore, Yoh is so quiet, it's almost like he's a mute and Haruna spends so much time talking, it gets a tad annoying. In reality, such couples do exist but on paper, do you really want to read about this? Thus, this somehow gives me the feeling that Haruna is more of a person who loves the sound of her own voice than someone who truly enjoys entertaining the others around her or even a person who values the company of others. In the end, although bits and pieces of her characters were interesting like her upbeat personality and determination to persevere, she came out as a little flat and one-dimensional because of Yoh's behaviour towards her and how too much of the conversation centered around her.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Furthermore it was a bit entertaining to read about Yoh detecting Haruna's thoughts but it got old very fast because the mangaka kept reusing that part of his character. And then, about the other characters: they were too straight-forward also. It's fine if one to two characters are blunt and straight-forward but almost the entire cast is, which deprives the manga of character interaction when the plot itself is so straight-forward.

Lastly, the pages are filled with quite a bit of "near-empty" space and scenes which drag for too many pages.

Anyways, if I wanted to read or experience a one-sided monologue, then I'd have written up my script or started talking to myself everyday.

I'm a guy...and even i got sucked in...anyways, art is relatively appealing and story is somewhat comedic and entertaining since I am at a relate-able age...

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I never read this type of storyline before. It's a first. It's great. Wonderful! I think it's really sweet and funny. There's lots of twists into it. If you like romance you would like this. I recommend this alot. It's a MUST read. lol. But sadly it's liscenced so go get at the store! [there are still some scanlations out there up to chapter 25] And the artwork. Its great too. the WHOLE manga is just great. haha.
