I couldn't get into it. It took forever for anything to happen, and the story was just a series of easily avoidable mistakes and misunderstandings, one step forwards, five steps backwards every chapter. One or two volumes and it would have been an amusing series. 17 (!!) whole volumes and it's just torture. I quit after volume 1.

This manga was really old-fashioned. It resembles Maison Ikkoku so much, with addition of ecchi biggrin. The protagonist is a little excessively wimpish, indecisive. Anyway, I like it, perhaps I'm at the age for serious relationship.
If u enjoy this manga, should read Maison Ikkoku and Kimagure Orange Road. Those two are really masterpieces IMO.

read the whole series in one go, and i must say it does have its poignant moments. the art grows from the first few volumes, as does the story. although the pace was kind of slow and some moments could've been dramatized for more effect, the story was good overall. touching, but being dragged across 17 volumes does get a bit redundant. the morals of this story fit nicely with its mood and atmosphere, but in real life diligence and the pursuing of dreams is not equivalent to success.

All to the end it was like life, with ups and downs, good times and bad times. It was AWSOME!

I don't know exactly when I started reading it, but ever since then this manga had made a really big impression on me.
The characters grew with time, and they grew closer to my heart at the same...
You must read it till the end to fully capture the whole picture of this wonderful work, and not just spew nonsense after reading a few chapters, like so many others do.
I'm not gonna rant about all the good and the not so good parts of the story, after all, it's everyone's own preferences that make them like/dislike things, I'm just gonna say this:
For me, this is one of my favorite works, something that just caught me. I'm glad, that I read this manga, and I think there are lots of others, who think the same.
Funny thing is, some of the situations the poor guy got into are somewhat similar to what I experienced when encountering women:-)
All in all, it was worth the time, sweat (when I got worked up thinking-COME ON!?! DON'T BE SO STUPID, DO IT LIKE THIS, NOT LIKE THAT!!! but well, I did even stupider things when in love, so... LOL) and tears I shed during the time I read this manga.
P.S.: Thanks for the EMS team for bringing this manga to us!

I was reading lot's of manga lately. But, yesterday I found this one. I almost forgot about sleeping, but now I've reached the last translated chapter, and I can't wait for the next one. Yes, it seems an obvious story, and what a lame character.

However, it has tons of fun and I really enjoy reading it. Like the drama and all the funny situations Nobita gets into.

The plot and the setting is just too similar to the classic maison ikkoku except this time around, more ecchi, protagonist more pathetic than anything else I've ever read. Humours are cheaply done with very generic situational comedy.

I got bored after 3 volumes... if you think this is good, read maison ikkoku - at least the humours are more well-done and the characters' interaction/feeling are more reasonable.

The romantic aspect is a bit wacky but then again so is the nature of the characters and their relationships. Overall its a funny and enjoyable light read.

It starts to improve after

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Masuo gets transferred to Hakata.

As a romance slice of life it does tend to drag on with pointless story arcs fueled by stupid misunderstandings, however they improve drastically beginning at that point. I wanted to read this after reading Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie, and I honestly did not expect that this would turn out much better. I mean, I teared up quite a number of times!

Stuff I didn't like? One would probably be how much of a wuss Masuo was, especially compared to [m]Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie[/i]'s Shoutarou. Another would be how annoyingly pushy Hamaoka suddenly became during the latter half of the story (I started out preferring her over Nagisa).

So yeah, if you want to read this manga do keep in mind that this is a romance slice of life. But if you're like me who can endure (and enjoy) this for a little less over 24 hours, then read on.
