Despite her family's protests, Aoi Sakuraba decides that she is going to marry Kaoru Hanabishi, her love of eighteen years. Once he realizes that her intentions are genuine - and that she's not just trying to get him to reconcile with his estranged (and domineering) family - he begins to definitely warm up to the idea, too. What obstacles must the two overcome in order to be together?

Here I was thinking it'd be horrible from the reviews but it's not that bad. Ignore the extremely negative comments because it is not the worst romance manga you can come across. There IS worse. I know what I'm talkin about even though not everyone else does. This is actually an okay series.

Romance + harem

This is a "feel good" manga really. Something to read to take your mind of something else. No complex plot or anything, just romance with the feeling you get from those "slice-of-life" manga.
The only thing that annoys me a little is Aoi's complete affection for Kaoru. Damn, they could at least make her dislike something about him... smile

Why should you read this? Simply because it's different from other romantic manga. This manga seem to begin where other manga finished. A nice change.

Even though it turns into a harem manga i'm against labelling it as such, because it could mislead the reader. Though i was kind of disappointed when it turned out to be one.

i don't understand why she's so obsessed with him. i guess this one just wasn't for me and i didn't really like the animation. i stopped at around ch.12 and never started up again. i couldn't really connect with any of the characters and if truth be told, i prefer it as such. all of the characters were either all timid or just hid behind a facade of timidity that kind of annoyed me after the first volume. not my cup of tea.

I love this manga (so far). It's cute in its own way. By the way, there is the anime series based in this manga. The anime sucks very bad! It has its moments but it just too stupid. The manga doesn't get that dumb.

this manga exceeded my expectations, art is good, characters are nice and the story is forward going and doesn't get boring...romance fans(like me) should try this out...

PS. 8 is a very good rating on a scale 1-10
