This manga is awesome, I think adding mystery sub plots would've ruined it, and i think turning it into a comedy would've ruined it. I like it, no, my mistake. I love this manga <3

Btw, if you thought the romance was boring i would say it's more realistic than other manga. If you want excitement i suggest you read smut bigrazz

This manga has interesting plots and the characters are all pretty weird and funny. If you read this, you'll actually find yourself laughing quite alot like when the crow guy climbs a ladder was it? and breaks the school window with a shovel or when Ibuki punches a guy when he disses the guy she was on a date with -kyaaahaha lol soo funny the punch.

Anyway, it's a pretty good manga and it's worth a read. It's short and simple and thats what makes it not such a nusiance like some shoujo/romance mangas..

Bit of a bore

Some lively characters, but a bore as a romance. A weird guy tells a girl she's cute and that he loves her, and after dithering about it for three chapters, she accepts him. At least it didn't draw things out.

Would have worked much better as a general comedy with the amusing ensemble cast. As it is, they're little more than poorly sketched-out scenary. The heroine's manliness is pretty awesome, but that fades away in the bonus story. Even the titular beads are of minor, contrived importance. There's really very little going on here.

I usually like short and sweet, especially with shoujos. However what a waste of the interesting combo of characters. How cool would it have been if they were a student council who solved mysteries/problems in the school? Like Yukan Club or something..

the extra is so meaningless and stupid. i mean the main girl agrees to meet this random guy that shows up (spoiler, i guess) turns out he is a ghost (spoiler end) and she meets him at night leaving behind her boyfriend who tells her not to go. she thinks is more important to keep a promise she made even if it hurts her boyfriend, to her promises are more important than feelings. he should have dumped the stupid girl, how can she care more about some random guy than her own boyfriend? what a stupid girl.

I think Motomi-sensei is my favorite mangaka, I love all his works and especially his art style. The story is sweet and heartwarming and it just gives that fuzzy feeling. The characters are strong and develop quite well.
I recommend this work on a rainy day because it will certainly brighten your day.

I liked it. It was funny and unique in its own way. I mean secret student council as the beads club. That is something I would have never guessed and I love it. It was a fun read, cute, but it was too short, but it ended perfectly in a way that you're pleading for more. xD Its a beautiful story.
