I cried a lot during this manga, and the ending was perfect. Some people may say it's generic and/or boring, but I liked it very much. The art is beautiful and the characters are lovable, I would recommend it if you like romance and drama, but not too, too much, like other mangas have. I didn't find it's romance and drama level overbearing like other mangas I've read.

There's a lot of commenting on this series being generic and boring. I disagree with those statements. Yes, the outcome can be easily predicted within the first 10 pages, but most shoujo is like that and we still read it and love it anyway (mostly). I really really enjoy Motomi Kyousuke's art as well as story and humour. Although the story is typical of shoujo manga, the cast of oddball characters (and that includes the protagonist) have a refreshing energy to them that I think makes this manga unique and enjoyable. Reading it, I feel like the mangaka really has fun doing this work!

So. It's not going to answer any deep questions about life or anything. But it's a thoroughly entertaining, fun read for someone who likes a slightly different take on the typical shoujo story.

Also, the Very Black White Day side story (an un-related one-shot) is absolutely great. If you didn't like the main story, you should still read that!

This is pretty much like every other shoujo manga out there. You can guess the plot within the first 5pages.

It's fine if you like normal shoujo, but if you're expecting anything new or original, you're not going to get it.

I admit that the manga basically had no plot, but was it really that bad? I mean, sure after the heroine found out that she liked the guy, they quickly end up together, but seriously, it wasn't that bad right?

I don't think the feeling comes off as good as in Beast Master. Hard to describe, but I didn't feel as much when reading it-- less depth. Nonetheless I'm a new fan of this shoujo mangaka (most shoujo has few depth anyway). I admire the art and her story lines are better than many shoujo I've had the unfortune to read.

First it started kind of nice but later it lost its charms and turned into same old Shoujo plot line that you can see almost every where. it is not some thing special at all, just the same typical Shoujo stuff with a little hint of comedy and action. nothing more and nothing less.

ah-ah~ i agree that its too short. I would have liked it if it focused more on romance than on the school itself. Too much unnecessary dialogues and scenes....

Unfortunately, the mangaka was limited to only 3 chapters, which is a shame. She has a section called "Requiem of NG (No Good) Plots" where she goes over what she would have liked to do. Too bad she wasn't given the freedom to actually do it.
