I decided to read this, since I loved Ichigo 100% and Lilim Kiss wasn't bad either. The art is the most beautiful I've seen, It just blows me away every time. I've heard some complaints about it being very confusing and having too many characters. True. For a manga this short it had a bit too many. Although as I finished it I thought I had already gotten to know all the characters quite well, and that is why I was a bit disappointed that it ended already at chapter 32. It was quite enjoyable, since I first read about 20 chapters and then started over again after a few months break, you started to recognize all the characters. I believe this could have turned to be a very good manga given enough time to build and get to know all the characters, still an enjoyable read.
Not Kawashitas best work, however if it is true that it was just to get back into business I can only wait to read her next real project.

(mostly the same comments as iamssjvash)

It's really noticable that this is a shounen manga.. All males are ugly/plain, all girls are really cute. And they fall in love with eachother no matter how horrible the male is. It's just horrible.

The whole setup of the manga is bad as well, you get 1 story per chapter, then it changes to the next couple. And in total there are what? 5-6 stories going on? It's just too many "main" characters and too messy.

The only thing I can compliment this manga of is it's really cute female chars, nothing else. I couldn't read further than chapter 10, it was just so utterly boring.

The feel is similar to school rumble without the comedy. There's ALOT of one-sided love. The problem I had was a lack of focus. Way too many characters. There's really no main character in this. It just jumps around different character each chapter. The ending was kinda abrupt, seemed like everything came together too easily, would have liked a couple more chapters to flesh it out and tie up some loose ends.

Well, no wonder that it seems to be liked so much that it would get animated sooner or later..

The story has the usual plots that most youths that get into these kinds of situations. Relationships aren't always as easy as it seems and even though it might start out funny at times, it all goes serious with the tone later on.

Has comedy which adds to interest aside from the romance and the school life setting.

The story is also well given as each character is given their scenarios as well as related with each other.

If ever an animated version does come up, I wouldn't hesitate to watch it. (^_^ )

really big fan of the art, just had too many characters and i got confused. you should definitely give it a read, it's pretty short, and it's from the person who did lilim kiss and ichigo 100%, so the art is absolutely amazing.

I loved the art, I loved the array of characters, but.... well, then it just ended.... I can't honestly recommend this to a die hard romantic comedy fan because it feels like just a teaser.... That being said, I still enjoyed it for what it was none the less...

It was a decent series but would have been much better if she cut half of the cast several of them just weren't all that interesting. Also the way she introduced the characters wasn't a good idea should have continued the characters after one chapter rather than having new after new characters in the first 10 chapters.

Well at least even with the quick cancellation it had a decent ending. Hopefully the manga-ka's next work doesn't have that big of a cast and sticks with the interesting characters this time.

... to a bigger and, I'm sure better, work by KAWASHITA Mizuki. (I read somewhere that she's in the process of working on something new) I really enjoyed Ichigo 100% as that was the manga that lured me into the whole harem & romance genre. Even though this one didn't meet up to expectations, and was a bit confusing at times, I still enjoyed reading it. Of course I'm biased towards Kawashita-chan and will always be a fan of her and her work. Hey just like your favorite sports team, they can only be #1 100% of the time in your mind, not when compared to other teams.

The comedy here sucks pretty bad, not fun at all. The romance is not really that impressive and it's annoying like hell that all arcs are spread over 32 chapters and not together. The art is average like the whole manga. If you are into romance
and there is no other manga you want to read you can take a look.
