i have put this in my Wish List a long time ago.. and i havent bother until threee days ago and i must say it was very addicting. at first the story sounded very cliched but even the most cliched story when handled with awesomeness in turn becomes awesome as well but what really surprised me was the fact that she
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she slept with him while he was drunk, well to me that was kinnda shocking and low
but seems it was the missing ingredient so hooray for them..

the characters were likable.. Hanada was cute, even though he were to appear to me in real life he would be on the 'dont touch, 100 % authentic asshole category' and Sakura, shes a really strong heroine, and i like it that the author didnt made it overly dramatic. i mean the key dramatic elements were already there, thank god she didnt milked it!

anyways.. the art.. wasnt that bad. twas kindda unique in my opinion. my one advice would be not to mind it.

ok, i must admit i was a little turned off by the art but i figured i'd give it a go. I guess it's kind of like a less intense version of Mars, but everytime the plot starts to edge into "psychological", it backs off pretty quickly
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like when Hanada's deadbeat mum appears and threatens to claim custody over him if his dad doesn't lend her money but then magically wins some money and disappears into the sunset...
. But the characters are sweet and funny and i like how the mangaka spices up some of the usually cliche moments. I have to admit though, i'm at Vol7ch38 and i'm not really liking where Kirai is going

I mean, how will running off to study abroad without properly telling him, make him trust her? *sigh*
...but i might have to edit this comment soon if it starts to get better : ) Anyway, if you like this, i seriously reccommend you try Mars!

Yeah, the artwork isn't too nice. It'll definitely bother the reader a few times but it shouldn't be a reason to drop reading this because the plot and character development are great.

I can't explain why but I feel as if Hanada and Sakura's relationship was natural or very believable. Their situation is cliche, that's a given. The whole step-brother thing.. with the family.. But the development of their relationship is very nice and natural.

Read it if you are a shoujo enthusiast!!

I can't stop reading it! The story is progressing soooo slowly but its entertaining. The two main characters are arguing most of the time and theirs not much going on in terms of romance (although i'm sure they'll eventually fall for each other). Despite all this, i'm loving this story a lot, very entertaining and the character development is great, you truly begin to understand the feelings of all the characters. Very unique story.

Really great!!! I love it lol the art isn't all that great but as you read on it seems to get better and you won't notice it. Actually it really grew on me and it fit perfectly with this. So don't let the art stop you from reading this!!! I almost passed it over thank goodness I didn't. LOL I don't know why but one of my favorite characters is the guys mother even though she only appears like 2 times so far. She's really interesting. Favorite Part is at the end of Volume 6 <3 and the beginning of Volume 7 <3 XDDDD

I love Kirai! Ahaha, laugh. It's a pun, because in Japanese, kirai means "hate". Ahahaha, get it? Well, I just knew I had to write a review after finishing reading all the raw volumes. It's a great series. OK, so it doesn't have the most amazing art. It's unique, however. It gives the series the tone it needs. Volumes 1-8 were fantastic... However, once you get to volume 9... Um, well, let me put it this way... I SKIPPED THE ENTIRE VOLUME. Yes, it made me that angry. However, after Shin Hanada finishes his big bitch fit (apologies for language), the ending is very pleasing. Of course, I'm not saying anything. Wait for the scanlations.
I have to give this a 9/10, because of it's well-played smut scenes, character development, and story. However, that last point is taken off because of the climax near the end (NO, I AM NOT JUST BEING SORE BECAUSE IT'S NOT HAPPY HAPPY) and some of the character trait flaws that are too big to imagine. Example... "OMG, YOU'RE HAVING SEX WITH HANADA-SENPAI! NO WAY! I WANNA HAVE SEX WITH HIM TOO! Even just once~" Like, wow. This is a thing of... "How low can you go." Some of the characters, even side characters, seemed a little, um... Well, yeah. You get the point.

It doesn't feel old or cliche, even if the setting is quite popular. I like both lead characters- they are funny and have their strong and weak points. The art isn't that bad, but you have to get used to it. It's a very good romantic comedy.

I had a very good time reading it.

Even though the art is totally unconventional, ugly to some. I think like many of the previous comments that it somehow suits the story. The artist put a really unique spin to the plot... i won't spoil, but the plot device have been cunningly used is all i will say.

eh, it's slow going. a good read, though, kinda.. in the fact that you need to keep reading so you can find out what's going to happen. (in my case at least)

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i'm really annoyed with how it's going, though.. i mean, really? i thought matsumoto had more guts.. and she gets plain ANNOYING! GOD! seriously, she's worse than the fan girls when she follows him all the time and yells at him. just leave him alone and go find a boyfriend.. ><' but i guess it doesn't work out like that haha.. and hanada IS pretty, but seriously.. jerk.. the romance isn't going as i would like it to, but we'll see.

the artwork isn't really that bad, imo, it grew on me. hanada actually looks pretty good. (: oh, and hanata kinda reminds me of rei from mars.. only not as screwed up and more of a manwhore.. haha..

Hehe this one was really fun to read. I read the eng scans and just skimmed through the raws. It's cute but I don't think I would take it seriously if it was completed in english @.@ idk. great manga though.
