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!

yes the title says it all. Its not bad, but just so overused and im tired of seeing someone who has no common sense trying the get a girl who is extremely pretty. Yes, i believe it would have been pretty good if i had gotten past ch 3, but i couldnt push myself to get passed it.

Deserves a 7, clearly it is pretty good, but im done reading mangas about losers and dull characters.

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.

Rating 10 / 10

Drag and reset and Start again...

This manga is really stretched out by the mangaka... Using a male protagonist that is such a loser and depicted in situations that you're somehow spellbound to keep reading this manga to its end, just to see a conclusion. My annoyance... probably at around volume 10 when the "love story" resets itself and the relationship between the main male and female seems to starts from scratch even after going through so much bullcrap. It's like reading the manga from volume 1, dejavu...

The mangaka hanako seems to run out ideas and the manga fills out with more and more fillers side stories at around volume 13...

Important characters? The main dweeb Masuo nickname "Norita", aka the boy that's been looked after by Doraemon, the very beautiful male-phobic female, Nagisa, love of his life, and finally her best friend. I consider the others just being cameo and some are even pointless and a waste of ink to draw...

a series of implausible events...

If this were done in live action, it would be one of those melodramas featured on TV that's shown in the afternoon and watched by bored housewives. I guess I, like the housewives I mentioned earlier, have the same morbid fascination with regards to the implausible misfortunes and weird events that can visit any character, fictional or otherwise. Still, it's a fun read.

This manga is like a TV drama. Cliche plot, predictable outcomes, over used character personalities... and yet you cannot get enough of it. It''s like crack... same old product, unchanged through the years, and yet it still manages to get people hooked onto it.

Sure the characters can make you frustrated to the point of you wanting to put your fist through your monitor, but there are also moments that really make this manga a worth while read.

Yep, it's another ultra loser guy with glasses gets pretty girl that everyone wants story. Yet, it's pretty fun to read. The main character is not super indecisive or gutless like some other stories. Although there are plenty of cliched "misunderstandings" drags on the story, it has a decent pace of development. The humor is not bad either. Taken by its parts, the manga doesn't sound that great. But, as I keep reading it, I find it somehow getting better and better. Recommended for romance/comedy fans.

i like this one, only thing is that to have all the hard work he put to get her, she does somethin really hurtful to him.
i hope that the business guy comes bak and straightens everything out in the company.

i also hate how he chases her and sometimes theres misunderstanding and than she gets mad at him but when she does the same thing, she doesnt feel bad for him and stuff

i hope he starts to like the other gurl thats likes him alot, he deserves better than this B****y chick!
