Supremely Annoying Heroine

I am the type of person that believes love can happen to anyone, but I also refuse to believe people have no control over their emotions.

Chikai has no other redeeming qualities that interest Hanabi besides lemony breath. I cannot accept that she has no ability to control her own actions and that her feelings escalate despite her hatred and being constantly mistreated.

I found the teacher mysterious and could ignore her blatant sexual harassment because it made for unique circumstances. But Hanabi acts in a way that I find completely devoid of reason, emotion or logic. Using a type of androphobia as a plot device is useless if she falls for the first guy that stalks her. I stopped by chapter 9 because she is an idiot.

I think I would have liked this series if there was a MORE valid reason as to why the heroine hates guys. Unfortunately, the reason turns out to be so shallow and vapid, the character's actions are so unbelievable. I just don't understand where all this hatred is coming from. I mean hatred is a big word, and from what I've read so far, the main girl doesn't really 'hate' guys, she just dislike certain attributes of guys which surprise surprise is not present in the main lead, hence why she feels attracted to him. The girl in my opinion is not a strong heroine; her obstinate character is annoying instead of what it should be in manga such as this, endearing in a quirky sort of way. Well, anyway, this is just manga after all, I can just stop reading if I don't like what I'm seeing and that is actually what I'm doing with this manga. Not recommended.

chapter 11?

I read up to chapter 10 until now and I don't know if I like it or nor, because the beginning is very interisting. But I really dislike this teacher "Ami-Hime", shes getting on my nerve and I'm fed up with these typical Shojo-boys like Chikai. They're always Bishounen, cool, hot and kind of.... "aloof". That's why I like Sassa-kun so much. He's different. The charakter of "Hanabi" isn't new, you can find it in many other shojo-mangas: heroine hates boys, but what will happen, when the hot, cool and most famous guy in school appears...? But I think, it's a nice story because the art is so sweet and there are some characters I'm wondering what will happen to them.
Edit: it's getting a little thrilling after chapter 13, please translate more <3

Horrible Teacher

the beginning is interesting, but lately it's really get on my nerve..
It's start with the love match-making class, (It's silly).
And the teacher it's awfully trying to make her students fall in love and have a match. With deadline 1 week confused What a miserable story, it's totally wrong. It's up to each person who where when they will fall in love, or if they need a help...
Gosh, and she's spying too.
Then directly involved to the student's "love" problem.
If i were to put into that class, i wanna quit ASAP (note: but she doesn't let anyone who didn't want to participate to quit). I don't wanna get involved to that kind of teacher.
Basically step into human rights.... horrible2...
And what does the subject she teach? How to xxxxx a guy on Christmas?? Where in the world there will be a school to teach their students about that topic... I know it's just a manga, but this one is a mess. because it's not fantasy manga, nor comedy manga. But the story is really weird...
I don't think this story would get serious... or at least (that i can hope), dramatic.... With such idea that was really horrible, I imagine if that love teacher exist in real life. To write the guy's name I like on a paper to submit it to the teacher OMG. And what will happen next?? Call my parents? OMG OMG
It's a nightmare!
I don't think this would include to my reading lists.

I just read the 4th volume and i said the same thing to my sister. Chikai is definitely the combination of Daiya and Ichi, he got this cool side of Ichi sometimes and yet he can be cunning like Daiya at the same time....
So far i like it... And the twist that the mangaka made about Sasa-kun is sooooo GOOD... Nicely done... ^^

the beginning is pretty interesting...i like it when girls play hard to get, it makes the story a lot more fun to read specially when the guy is really trying to get the girl's attention...

the art is really good..the main guy is to die for..he's sooo HOT!!

Hmm the story seems a bit disjointed, like sometimes your missing a scene or some dialouge. I'm not sure if that is because of scanlators or the mangaka though. The plot is a little thin at this point but it holds potential. On a nicer point the art is quite pretty.

SO GOOD! Just as expected from the author of Parfait Tic! Besides the gorgeous art (the bishie guy remind me of a mixture of Ichi and Daiya!), it has an original plot that can make you in a happy mood!
