From Viz:
All high school freshman Airi Hoshina ever wanted was to someday live in a cozy home with a loving husband, and find joy in the little things in life. As a result, she makes it her daily mission to get to school on time because school legend has it that the longer one's non-tardy streak is, the better boyfriend one will find. But just when her daily routine is working like clockwork, an occurrence of fairytale proportions threatens to disrupt her grand plan.

An all time favourite. I've re-read this a LOT of times but I'm still not sick of it....yet. I still don't know why I like it, well I guess Airi and Aram just have these sweet scenes that makes we go "Awww" and "Kyaaa~".

This is a girly fantasy shoujo I'd definitely recommend. The characters are solid, as are the villains. The art does a good job of illustrating the fantasy parts. The humor is amusing, and the plot moves along nicely.

My greatest nitpick is an afterthought that addresses psychological concerns, and it's that she was primarily attracted to Aram's body. He was literally an adult with a child's mentality. Before Aram grew, his favor was one-sided. She changed her thoughts only after his body changed. The relationship would have never developed if his body wasn't attractive enough. She could not refrain from dating a kid for his body, which is odd, but, fortunately, not the bizarrest thing in shoujo. ^^;

Nevertheless, this manga has many good points! It's a cute romantic comedy that shoujo readers will definitely enjoy.

Um.. is no one else disturbed by the fact that she fell for a little kid? No matter if he occasionally turned into a boy her age... his mentality was that of a child. That kinda creeps me out. XD And all the guys liked her.. the ending was rushed, in my opinion, very anti-climactic, too... so.. yeah. Not particularly my cup of tea. It wasn't horrible, though. If you want a light, short read if you're bored, it should be fine. *shrug*

As expect from creator of "vampire knight", kawaii + so cute art~
To tell u the truth,I like this more than vampire knight cause i prefer funny,comedy,romantic and soft manga more than suspend,thriller,action.
Many Character created by Matsuri Hino :zero, kaname,yuki,seiren,airi,jeile,rei,aram , etc. all are extremely cute.
And for this work the plot is so nice,it make my heartthrob from time to time.

so yeah....I like it!

Shoujo lovers would love this! :"D
This is prolly first of its kind that I fell in love with. Hehe.
It's such a cute one. Even though I know Matsuri-sensei's story can be quite confusing...^^; but this is just a REALLY beautiful story!
I read this when I was just beginning to read manga's and I've already found a really nice catch! ='p
This is better than Vampire Knight. Well, to me it was and still is! (Although Vampire Knight has lovable characters too; Zero x Yuuki)
The characters are great and it gets you really giddy inside because of Aram and Airi. ♥
This is definitely worth the read!
If you're looking for a good fantasy, romance and totally cute manga to read. You must give this a try! ^,~

I can't even comment on this manga all I can do is praise it. The romance is sweet and innocent, still the story has depth. The characters have strong personalities without falling in the typical shoujo cliches and the artwork is just gorgeous.
I recommend this work of art to any reader.

It was a really adorable manga. I loved and enjoyed it very much. The artwork was GORGEOUS - all I can say. Anyone who says otherwise must be crazy. Although this story doesn't go extremely deep (I'm NOT saying it doesn't have depth), it gets you in a feel-good mood throughout the story and has meaning in its purpose. Yes, maybe it might have some cliches (honestly, what story doesn't?) but cliches DO happen in real life so - ignoring that, I highly recommend it to romance/comedy/shoujo readers.
