From Serenus-Dreamers:

After losing their parents, Fumino and her brother hop from one relative to another. Getting tired of all those moves, she finally decides to quit school and work to support her brother on her own. As they sat on a park bench, her teacher appears in front of her and agrees to her demands of marrying and supporting both her and her brother!! Is he serious or just playing around...?!


Also contains the oneshot, Tsukio to Himawari, in vol. 1.
Asahi-kun is a carefree junior-high student, never attaching to girls even though he enjoys going with them. But when the school's number 1 honor student Mitsuki "cyborg" Konno asked him to a 1-month date, in exchange for the front row ticket to his favorite singer's concert, he was forced to accept. He only has to show her what it feels like to date, right? He is ready for that...however, what he's not prepared for was his heart's reaction...

It's been a long time comin' but the ending has finally arrived and I relished every step of the way. The premise of the story is deceiving because you may be thinking "Teacher-Student relationship, say wha? Must be full of sexual innuendos and lusty scenes" Certainly 100% was not the case (although there were some innuendos that were not acted upon). The love was as pure as it can possibly get and I think the slow but sure progression in Fumino and Kazuma's relationship is what made the story so enjoyable for me. The artwork is absolutely beautiful and catered to my preferences very well. Scenes were all well depicted and so I give a 10 to the artwork. The various love polygons were a zesty addition and made the work more interesting. Although, I did feel like some parts could have been fast-forwarded and skipped, they were nonetheless great. I loved how the characters placed a great emphasis on the sanctity of family and the importance of perseverance. I personally wish to have a period of time dedicated to reading it in its entirety again because I honestly did enjoy it that much in this journey.

So all in all, highly recommended if you're in the mood for something that will make you gush and smile. Enjoy.

It's really great and has a nice, simple story to it. It's really cute and it is SOO SWEET! I LOVE IT! The drawings are really good and clean and Fumino's relationship with Kazuma is (again) SOOOOO SWEET AND ADORABLE!!!! I wish it didn't end. I wish all of my favorite manga never ends because when it does, i feel as if they died or they kind of "left" me.....Okay this is getting off topic but anyways, TOTALLY WORTH READING! Until the very end! TnT

Starting To Get Irritated at These Endings

I enjoy this series a lot though sections irritate me. I have grown very tired of series' ending this way, with the guy rather being forced or choosing to leave for usually about a year or more with the last scene being the meeting of the couple after being apart for a time or saying goodbye just before they leave. I've seen it in at least 12 other series, for example, Boys Over Flowers, Fullmetal Alchemist, Tampopo, and more! Why are mangakas obsessed with the "long journey", as I like to call it? Just let a couple be happy for once without throwing in pointless complications that serve more as an irritant, rather than a device that tries to make us feel pity and more invested. If the characters are well written, with great personalities, we'll be invested already. Over all did enjoy this series though. Ah! Another manga cliché in this series: the overbearing "powerfull" family that in reality would have no control over the protagonist, yet in the series seems to be able to change a persons life with just one decision. Boys Over Flowers had that too... but I won't get into that now. 7/10

Splendid Romance, I must say!

Splendid! The art is wonderful, the characters are interesting and the couples progress well. It is not too rushed and the plot is well focused all throughout the manga. I love it how the Mangaka loves to pair up random characters together. This one, I am referring to Kazuma's friend, Retsu being interested in Fumino's friend, Oka. It would have been adorable if the Mangaka did a small arc for those two... But oh well. Anyway, this manga is very much recommended. *thumbs up*

How it started was pretty good, but I think it could of been done better. I had to take a break from it towards the middle, cause it was getting stale for me, but towards the end it kind of picked up again. Overall I enjoyed it, it progressed well, and all characters were pretty likable, even the dad. Yeah, I said it, even the dad!

been waiting for this to get completely scanlated 'cause the description made it sound so goood.
it's not bad but i'm on the 8th volume after a few hours and it's getting drag-y (for lack of a better word)
hope the ending is satisfying...
Edit: ending was a bit rushed...and four months doesn't seem like that big a deal..nevertheless an alright read when you have nothing to do

I have followed this story since the first chapter release and I'm glad I stuck with it.

There were moments when I got frustrated with the couple, but, in the end, I absolutely adore them. Their marriage was not founded on love, so don't look for it right off the back, but it's amazing watching as they fall in love with each other and then try to ignore their feelings.

They both understand the delicate situation their in so getting to see the "slip ups" have you screaming like a psycho fangirl. Love those moments >_<

Kazuma has a fun personality, but he's mature and puts Fumino's future before his own feelings. And Fumino is a mature and strong character, but she's still a girl in love, so I'm actually a bit happy when she's irrational or a crybaby.

I also have a bit of love for every other character in the story, especially Teppei and Ryu.

It was slow-paced, but you can see the development in the story and it was fun to watch these two fall in love. There were sad moments, there were fun moments and there were moments that just blossomed with that lovey-dovey feeling. I loved it. One of my favorites. 10/10

I really enjoyed this manga! You can really see how it focuses on "Love" and not just one aspect of love such as relationships but also "Family," "Friends" and "Passion." I've read a couple student-teacher shoujo's but it's never really been my cup of tea which is why I was sort of hesitant to read this but this manga really pulled me in. First of all it doesn't really feel like they're teacher and student because their bond is so deep and they're so connected to the point that you just don't care he's a teacher anymore. The beautiful thing about this manga is that their love for each other is so unconditional and pure but there's also a huge sense of fragility, not to mention their student-teacher relationship hangs on a thin thread. Actually, i don't even think it focuses too much on how he's a teacher and how people will find out (most shoujo's are like this) but more so on the fact that they're married and are slowly getting attached to each other.
The ending was absolutely perfect. I thought I would be disappointed but no, it was a beautiful ending to a beautiful love story about Love, Family and Life.
