Hey this is TomS from LRE, i'm happy to hear that everyone is anticipating the next release, all i can say is that you may have to wait a few weeks more since it is starting to get to crunch time at college. I am sorry that we can't be more consistent but we are doing this out of boredom and just for practice.

Anyway i hope to have 64 out by mid march at the latest.

This is quite a funny manga. Of course, its a little Cliche in the romace sections, but the monster school thing makes up for it. I dun' think thats been done before.

A very good shoujo! The guys all look good ^.^ and the plotline is pretty good!

... it can do w/o the sex scenes though... somewhat ruins the flow of the story...

For me, this is a guilty pleasure at best. It is nowhere near a superior shoujo manga but the pacing and premise just sucks you in. The art is quite decent - cutesy and light - and the characters have nice designs.

There are a lot of bad things in this manga though. Stupid 'character development' coupled with shallow personalities is never a good formula. I never felt attached to any of the main characters. In fact, I was more interested in the parents. For all the decent pacing, the story just built up to a climax that sort of never happens and the ending flew by so fast that I had to read it 3 times just to grasp at what the absolute f**k just happened. It was very much a disappointment.

Also, I have to repeat what everyone else is saying:: Everyone is out to rape the (i-have-nothing-to-go-for-but-an-oh-so-pure-soul kind of) heroine. Jesus Christ, where is the subtlety? Why does everyone fall in love with her? She's attractive yes, but she looks like an elementary schooler and acts like it, maybe even younger!

I would say, it's worth the read, but probably not worth the money. If you can borrow it somewhere, go ahead.

I've read much worse, but also much better. I enjoyed the read somewhat and it'll stick around with me for a while, but it wasn't anything... special either.
The ending doesn't really keep up with the rest of the series, so don't worry if you find yourself quitting halfway through, you're not really missing out on anything if it can't keep you reading at least that long.

I rarely drop a manga, no matter how bad it is, because I don't think I can properly judge it unless I've read it to the very end. I stuck with this one for all 80-ish chapters and the opinion I formed after the first 5 chapters remained the same until the bitter end: this is a terrible story.

The female lead is a full blown idiot and while I can see how a ditzy lead character can be endearing or amusing, Hiyo's antics got old very quickly. Along similar lines, she has all of these men (boys) that are all head over heels for her, yet they are essentially attempting to rape her constantly -- but she holds no ill will towards them for it. It's horrible. Also, whenever the plot built up and came to a climax, each resolution was either unoriginal or just flat out stupid, and they would move onto the next ridiculous arc and repeat the same process over again.

The art was typical shoujo-esque and cute, and I had few problems with it until I began having trouble differentiating the male characters as more of them were introduced.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The moment I started reading the Chiya arc I just let out one long, drawn out sigh. Here comes this girl, completely out of nowhere, who decides that she is in love with her brother who she hasn't actually met before. She goes through a few chapters of drama and playing tricks on Hiyo, then after some more drama she decides that, even though she loves him, she won't be able to change his mind. Then just gives up.

I like this series... and not because it reminds me of Black Bird either. But I do have to admit that they are very very similar. Besides that I love the artwork. Very much to my liking. Though there are similarities to black bird, I still like the story. Read it <3

I usually don't like mangas like this one but I really enjoyed it. I did start to find it a bit repetitive but it kept me entertained enough that I couldn't turn away. It's pretty much pure fluff the entire way through but hey, I like fluff sometimes haha.

It's OK for a first read. The first chapter was interesting, but it went downhill from there. I don't know if this is possible but I realized that some chapters were sort of like "fillers". I'm disappointed to see the manga end like this as it showed a lot of potential at the start of the story. The art is OK.
