A 26-year-old salaryman, Matsumaru Fumihiko, asked Miss Tanaka from his work to watch a movie with him, but she didn't show up at the movie theater. As he is about to throw away the ticket, a 20-year-old, rookie voice actress named Onda Aka asked for the ticket. The two of them end up watching the movie together.

On their way home they notice that they live near each other. That night, Aka's apartment burns down and Matsumaru offers his help. She ends up living with him, but they have to keep it a secret to keep their jobs. What will happen to this relationship that is more than friends but less than lovers?

Dropped this manga after chapter 24. The girl is easy and stupid, she's one of the protagonists, that's why it sucks and she acts all cheery with the main male protagonist, I'm hoping chapter 24 backfires on her in future volumes and he gets another girlfriend, though I wouldn't know since I dropped it.

I don't see why so many people are raging over Chapter 24 and bashing Aka for not being faithful. The character was guilty over the recently transpired events. Rather harsh to just suddenly drop a series due to ONE chapter.

And I can see why the mangaka went back to fun and light-hearted chapters later on. It's basically a change of mood. They can't just keep hanging onto that issue, can't they.

Ok i haven't read Rec in a long time and having some down time decided to take look and i saw that "that" scene was a big issue for ppl., ok its not as bad as some ppl. make it out to be. True that compared to the rest of the manga which is light and fun, it was dark and out of place
Spoiler (highlight to view)
also yamada doesn't fully goes through with it, he cant lower him self to that lvl thank god
but having read darker stuff *cough sundome *cough it merely got my attention. I feel the author was just using this as way to strengthen their relationship and probably got burned by his fans cause of it and went right back to his light and fun style. If anything consider this a caution the manga gets dark sometimes so for those light readers WATCH OUT! senin, mature, drama can be a nasty combo.

@zeds: life is like that >_> ...

but i wanted to drop the series not because what happened wasn't something good, but, because the mangaka kept on going with the next volume with light, easy go lucky episodic chapters ONLY, leaving things as they had never had happened, almost as if he was trying to make you forget it. (possibly an editors move, so i'm not sure who i have to flame > : ( )

i really can't recommend this manga to anyone, and it is NOT because it is A BAD read, but because i still can't shake the feeling "that" chapter left me XD

I had watched the anime, but the comment about the end of v03 and I decided to read through to see the fuss and it really puts a dramatic turn.. oh, really... (though I've read up to v05), but it really makes me wonder on..
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Aka's actions and future actions. I feel she's not as faithful as her love she declares to him
(which she said once or so, but I guess it depends a bit on the translation.. ahh.. between daisuki/aishiteru/etc, but sometimes we see them both translated as the same.. but it somewhat makes me wonder on the more truthful meaning as the impact of actions would be hit harder the closer to someone you are. Oh well, easier to assume it was meant as love),
but maybe it's just my expectations of her being faithful since she loves him that I am forcing a bit

Then again.. there are some scenes where I think Matsumaru is being an idiot..
Spoiler (highlight to view)
where he meets up with Tanaka(or is it Tanakura, whatever) and gets ****-faced drunk with no recollection.. and ends up naked next to her the next morning

more than once.. idiot sad just not as intentional.

It was a nice manga, the type I like to read to chill, but -thank god- I sensed that something WRONG might happen, so I flipped it over... When I saw "THAT" I nearly threw up, after the first WTF moments I became enraged, and dropped the manga-I don't know if IT happened or not, but it was just too much... I couldn't read further... I hate it when mangakas do something like that in a "world" where something like this just doesn't fit in. This manga is not like Bitter Virgin, or the School Days/Elfenlied... anime- where you know what might happen. "THAT" just doesn't fit in this manga. Well, I love the manga till vol.3 nonetheless.

At first i thought this was a horror manga about a girl with a
man was i wrong. Good storyline and romance, my only problem is how there are so many lolis into the main character girl.(she looks like a kid!)

Yeah, the chapter was complete filler, and the manga writer probably ran out of ideas. I don't see how it's that big of a deal though.

It`s a nice read. I found it pretty interesting at most times. The story is okay and it`s enough to keep me hooked on it and the fanservice consisting of pantyshots, nudity and implied sex is also nice though at times a bit much. I give it a nine.

Not anything life changing. A good read. I didn't really find THAT CHAPTER to be that disturbing(then again I've read worse scenarios). Maybe if it DID HAPPEN there would be a more extreme story? Back on topic, the art is pleasant but not masterful. The story kinda lacks after volume one and goes on sorta like a slice of life maybe with some weird twists? Anyways, just read a volume and decide if you're hooked or not..

btw...7/10 personally (up to chapter 31)...
