wow this manga was really cute, the only thing I didnt like was that the wasn't stories for the friend's couple, I would like to see more of that but anyway it was heartwarming, and a lot like a young love, a pupy love or a monkey love? XD It really makes you want to go back to your high school days, you'll stay with a smile in your face and a warm heart!!!.

I had some doubts picking up this manga (mostly because of the name), but I'm really glad that I did. It's a very nice light read and a refreshing change in terms of the heroine. The art suits the overall tone of the manga, not too over the top, and definetly easy on the eyes. If you haven't already, pick up this title and start reading, I definetly recommend it smile

I first heard of this manga a year ago, but disregarded because of the summary (LAME VIZ!). Anyway, I don't even remember why I started reading it now but am glad I did because it's not bad! I find that the storyline doesn't... flow together as well as other manga, but I like that the main characters aren't the typical shoujo type (hot, bishie boy and childish, stupid girl). Haruna is a beautiful, yet mature girl with a good head on her shoulders and Macharu is a fun, but sensitive/attentive guy who looks younger than his age. The humor isn't bad and the art is wonderful.

Like a previous reviewer, I also find some part of the story a bit slow, but the progression in Haruna and Macharu's relationship make up for it. They're so cute together and I love seeing their love grow slow, but steady.

Not typical at all. Very entertaining. I really hate Macharu's best friend. I really want to punch him in the face. Good story development. I hope the mangaka keeps it up.

Good Characters

I love the characters. For once the heroine is not ugly or irritably shy. The heroine is the pretty and cool one in the relationship and the guy is not a total dork. Macharu is really cute especially in his obvious love for Haruna. I also like Atsu, the "other guy" in this. The problem is that the story gets boring after a while. It's still worth reading.

Nope, not typical at all. I find the humour unique and there are some unpredictable parts that serve as original flavouring.

There are some parts that are a bit tedious and doesn't really add to the main story...but the unexpected and exciting jumps forward in the relationship makes up for it.

The art is good, the plot sweet/good, the far i would give it an 8. Not moving fast enough, in my opinion bigrazz The characters are really cute and real. They're developments are visible and intriguing.

Definitely worth a read.

though....I havent finished this so i cant make a solid conclusion. But I love it so far bigrazz

well after 1st chapter since there are no new releases I had looked the raw ones of course without understanding the conversations( well maybe i can read a little bit) and I even know the end biggrin but these last releases, after I read them i decided that these two are the cutest couple ever. they are so adorable, they are really trying to understand each other and they tell the problems that they have when necessary, they care each other. and after reading three times the last two released chapters I realized that it really seems different since the two of them are nearly at same height, you know I think it is also adorable we always couples which boys are taller( except lovecom of course biggrin) I mean when they are holding hands or standign next to each other they seem different than the other couples, the result: I really like itbiggrin

I wouldn't say it's your straight out typical shoujo. But I admit when I first started reading it I thought it would be, but I persevered and that soon changed.
I agree with the last comment that the one below it is wrong. For one thing, most typical shoujos are about a plain or somewhat cute girl who has a crush on some guy that is out of her league. This one is about a pretty girl, the mature idol-type, who lowers her standards when she begins to like the sweet, cute monkey boy, who likes her back. It's kind of like in lovely complex in that no one believes she's his girlfriend, but in this case it's because she's too pretty for him. That was hilarious when she meets his family in chapter 3 and they all think she's atsu's girlfriend.
It's definitely more for those who are looking for a sweet, lighter romance story with less drama and a little comedy. For that audience, this is for you!

I TOTALLY disagree with the last comment. This is a sweet love story~~ and it is not typical. The main guy isn't some ultra sexy guy, he is a runt with a sweet smile; and the heroine isn't so typical either-- she is the strong type (which I love). What I like about this series is that neither one has been in love (they may have liked others in the past, but not LOVE) so they are feeling the beginnings of love for the first time... they don't realize what it it they are feeling- they just know they are drawn to each other. This series is really sweet <33 and I can't wait for more!!!
