The story wasn't anything really new. It was nicely done though. The main characters, Rin and Riko, were lovable and endearing. Riko's struggle to be a normal school girl was often an element of comedy. Rin's actions were sometimes outrageous. The assassin was a bit bumbling at first appearance, but turned out to be useful in the end. Rin's body guards were a bit strange. It wasn't a complex storyline, but it had enough meat to make a good read. The two short stories weren't bad, but not as good as the main story. The short story in the 1st volume was better than the 2nd one. a nice read, worth the time.

One of the best shoujo manga I've read.

And I've read a lot.

I must say, Ran-kko is terribly endearing. 8 v8 Ahhh, he's absolutely ideal~ If he had a cliche kind-considerate-cool princely personality I would only like this manga a fraction as much. His antics are really amusing--like the strawberry syrup and his amount of bodyguards lurking in the festival~ His childishness and selfishness is adorable. His attitude towards life, towards making memories is absolutely beautiful. ( > u<)b

Riko-chi is charming. A tad boring and very cliche, but a classic, ne? She's strong outside, but simply wants to live normally. Her insistence upon every introduction that she's normal is hilarious~ (Plus the bald guy's comments, lololol.)

I adore the art. The elegance in Rikon's movements is lovely, though her face is plain. Ran-kko's illustration suits him very well.

The first volume is volumes better than the second. The side stories are interesting. I really recommend it. ( * U*)b

Ah, the main-story and the oneshots were actually kind of nice. Simple storylines (though at times, a bit silly) and acceptable art. Not anything deep really, but reading this will keep you entertained.

Soooo full of cliches, but yet I really liked it. I've got a few nits to pick, though. Ran looks like a girl with his somewhat large eyes, girly profile, and his hairstyle. Not even in a shoujo way, but in a "is-this-two-chicks-kissing-yuriconfused", not that theres anything wrong with that. But I love him, his design, and the art just the same. The cliche of sudden appearance of a billionaire heir and a sudden marriage proposal is also done pretty OK. They had a history, which surprisingly she remembered ASAP. Riko is "extraordinary" but I'm glad that she's a strong girl who's just like "no, F you, man." The antics get ridiculous but its a fun and cute read. smile

I loved it so much! I read it on a whim in one sitting and fell in love with the characters and plot! I rated it a 10 and reccomend it to everyone. It was funny, clever and the make-you-sigh kind of sweet. My only regret is that it ended too quickly!

Note: This review does not include a review for the One Shot's in the series

A cute manga, maybe a bit over the top and a little far fetched at some parts but it was still quite cute and fluffy. A quick nice read that while it doesn’t need to take priority on you’re “to read” list it is still something that you could read on the side for enjoyment.

Plot- Relatively unique, the main premise was somewhat interesting but not overly much and you may be able to pick out a few (though not many) shoujo clichés. It has a pretty nice pace, maybe a bit quick at some points but for a short work it was very nice.

Characters- Personally I liked them. Yeah the main guy, Ran, sometimes was a little over the top, and a bit inconsiderate at time, and annoyed me a bit, but it was neat to see others reactions to his over the top personality, so I could stand him just for that. As for the girl, Riko, I liked her personality and her general reactions to Ran’s actions. She was tough and willing to stand up for herself and for others.

Other- Not much else to say. I don’t think you should go out of your way to read it if you have a full plate of manga lined up to read but if you ever have time you should definitely pick this up for a light read! Just be ready for a few unrealistic situations!

8/10 – Really liked

that Riko's ability is
Spoiler (highlight to view)
her acute reflexes, not flexibility - they are two different things. Maybe a mistranslation?
. I haven't seen the raws to confirm it but it makes more sense that way.

Anyways, it's a nice read with refreshing art - I'm slowly becoming a fan of the mangaka!

I freakishly love this manga.. The main female lead is so awesome and most importantly, NOT annoying! The art is so nice and the storyline is fairly simple and will truly makes you laugh as you're reading this manga. Really recommended..

Ha ha, I loved the assasin! He was hilarious, expecially because Riko kept kicking his @ss. THat freaked me out for a sec, I thought he had died! T-T But he didn't, which is good. I think he got off easy in the first chapter. What would you do if somebody pulled a gun on you, pulled the trigger, and BAM out pops a flower and a proposal.

But yeah.. I'm done rambling for now...
