Good Seinen Romance

I really like this one. The Male lead is a little lame, but he becomes a fuller character towards the most currently scanlated chapter (86).

I am seriously enjoying this one.

And to the people saying "I got bored after 3 chapters", this is a 17 volume manga. 3 chapters is no where near enough to form an opinion like that. It has FAR more drama and realism than most other romances.

The End

Overall this was a great read, it will leave you happy in the end. Many people might hate male leads who are indecisive and wimps, and yet people need to realize despite those traits they are usually the ones getting the majority of the love interests. Sure its unrealistic but how long would the story last if Masuo was decisive... one volume, maybe even two. The manga does have a lot of misunderstandings which account for

of the manga which is over kill but you will not stop reading till the end. The only regret I have is the ending which should have been longer in regards to the final couple and explained how their fears were overcome. The ending kinda seemed like it was rushed however none to less it is a very good read. Recommended for all those who love the classic drama romance stuff.

It starts off pretty much as a big cliché, but it's a good read to pass some time.
To be honest, though, I did find the formulaic approach to get pretty boring, halfway through volume 4 I skipped to the final volume to see the happy ending.

alright for starters this manga is not great by any means truthfully i'm not even sure how i even finished all it is is just a bunch of misunderstanding happening one after the other it can get frustrating its long so if you end up liking it you will be reading for some time but for me it was a one time thing i am never reading this 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...

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.

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.

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.

To be really honest, when I first read this story I got really turned off by how weak and pathetic the main character was. And it was only after some halfheartedness to read past the first 10-20 chapters that I started to really enjoy it. You may be annoyed but the art portraying the main character in the weak light but its there for some comic relief, but towards the current chapters (chapters 80+) that you see that he isn't that bad of a guy and should be LOVED! This type of story could be your cup of tea so try it!
