this was surprisingly good. I like Yoshizumi's work but it never really made me go "wow!". But this one came close. The characters are all likable and didn't fall into stereotypes. The heroine-Sakura- was surprisingly mature and has a realistic vision of herself and others. I wouldn't be embarrassed to envision myself as her. The other female characters in the manga are also admirable- like her high-maintenance friend who later learned to compromise, the main guy's sister who knows what she wants and knows how to make a guy stay put, and the other woman who was weak at first but didn't go into one of those annoying "other woman" types who tries to steal away the main guy. The main guy is nice and blunt with his words. Sakura's ex is hilarious and totally didn't turn out to be the sort of guy I expected him to be. The plot is a bit bland, but seriously, just when you assume situation will go a certain way or a character will act a certain way- there is a twist. It happened several times in the story and I was pleasantly surprised. Short and sweet with a bit of tangyness. =)

This manga is so emotionally mature! After turning 21, it's hard not to feel incredibly old when you read shoujos especially when your romantic life is pretty much non existent (haha ^^wink but since the main characters of this manga are older than me (and there is no emotionally retarded scene)... I felt pretty young reading the manga. The relationship of the main characters is like a plain bun with different types of delicious sauce smeared over it XD

They cut the 9th chapter somewhere really exciting. I can't wait for the next release. It is like waiting for the next episode of a soap opera. That is why I hate reading incomplete series. Although every time I promise myself not to start incomplete series, I break it each time.

Did Iku fall in his ex-girlfriends tempting trap? I hope and I wish he did not!! But they cut the chapter a very awkward place that might mean he cheated on Sakura. Uwaa.

Anyway, This is a great series. I suggest everyone to read it but please wait a little while because waiting for the new release is driving me crazy bigrazz

As a josei this story is quite mature but cute.
But in my opnion, I didnt see any excited point of this girl at all. I dont get the idea why he fall for a this clumsy, busy girl. I think It's just a wish of the mangaka, lol.

This manga was adorable. The woman (who's 26) is actually really relatable and believeable, and she makes you feel the same way about the guy as she does. The art is pretty good, too~!

I have always been a fan of Yoshizumi's artwork, and this series doesn't dissapoint at all. It is engaging and has some fun moments. But I do tend to agree that the characterisation is flat, the plot moves at an awkward pace, and there is a certain coldness in the way the romance flows from the main couple. I wish there was more emotion shown in the male character, but then again this is Yoshizumi we are talking about here, her male leads are always so perfect and composed! bigrazz

I thought it was ok...but it was a bit to I dunno it sort of just lacked, none of the characters had any real depth and I felt the lead guy towards the end was bordering on a shoujo cliche I just felt as a josei it lacked depth and really not much actually happens in the manga. Its good towards the end but the ending was not really all that satisfying I found it more of a shoujo then a josei.
