Kind of a joke

I somehow read 35+ chapters but I can't fathom reading 60 more. Way too long and drawn out for a comedy shoujo. While it is entertaining at times, it's lacking a serious main character and plot line. Definitely not a read that will make you think, nor does it feel well crafted and thought out. The female lead is only "hard working" to combat her perpetual laziness and the mild character progression is in no way profound or applicable to real life. She's dopey and child-like through and through. Additionally, many of the story's characters are flat and just shift around to however the plot was written but dont act as believable individuals.

The plot does no one justice. It's just a bunch of arcs one after another of her meeting a new person, usually a hot guy, only to prance around trying to become wifey material with them. Many adventure manga have similar arcs but in the least still have something deeper tying things together. Usagi's betrothal is the only thing standing.

Regardless, it's a matter of preference of what you want to read, so if you're looking for something fun it might be for you.

This is one of the best mangas out there.
It's not just a regular Shoujo manga, it has a different story line and a slightly unique character.
I looooove the humor. This manga makes me literally laugh out loud.
It's a must read. :]

This manga had an entertaining story over all. There were a few spots where the story lagged a little, and the ending was a bit quick. The artwork was great, and certainly added to the enjoyment of reading this one. I would like to have seen something more done with a couple of the secondary characters. It is definitely worth the time to read it.

this manga is soooooooooooo... good, i loved it. i didn't really liked it at first but then it kept getting more n more interesting, some part made is so intense that it left a big image, like when da war broke out n every1 was killed... that part is sooooooooooooooo... heartbreaking, it was her special day n she... thought everythin was a happy endin.. but yea... heartbreakin, very suspenseful durin that part 2, n then she totally changed... we really c how usagi grows throughout da manga.. n i really liked da love triangles n twists wink

it is very developed, not like a typical shojo manga at all! u really can't guess what'll happen next

I adore this Manga. although the heroine is a bit typical.
Its quirky and fun, and a laugh a minute, whilst keeping you on the edge of your feet. The art is also really good. I bought them of Bookdepository.
A great read. fans of the Genre will love it.
Though the ending is a bit of a let down...^_^
People, It's liscenced, All 15 volumes of it!
(Btw, the Twist In Vol 12 is AMAZING)
GO BUY IT!!!! It will waste Scanlators time translating it, and why should they when they could be translating some new fab manga thats not As Illegal.

the last time i heard anyone named Usagi was Sailormoon, so when i saw the heroine for this manga was named Usagi as well, i was interested. don't really liked the shinobi ninja crap but it was fun to read anyhow. the manga kept me going until i don't think i can let it go anytime soon. Usagi is very funny and interesting. i like it.

I got the first volume of this series as a Christmas present ( oh side note: dont give ppl books unless u know that they really wanted that book bc I got 6 different series n I hate all of them..), and as I mention ina really long side note, I hate it. The main character.... I CAN'T stand her.. she is so man crazy!!! I read the pre-quel in the magazine and I freaking love it (I read the prequel 3 times!) So I tried to reread this again.. this time I got up to 1.5 volume before I gave up.. so if u hate useless, man crazy girl, then dont read it. I like the rest of the characters though (esp. The main boy.. oh myyy xD)

Maybe I'm just becoming cynical after reading 100+ shoujo series.

Either way, this manga was nothing short of awful, and had little real substance to it. It was just like any other bad shoujo series...incapable girl falls in love with the unattainable hot guy, the hot guy doesn't care for her....then later, childhood friend shows up with romantic interest in the incapable girl, and hot guy becomes jealous and wants the incapable girl after realizing how loyal/cute/fun/etc she is. The cycle continues and ends with happily ever after for everybody.

I wouldn't have minded the generic plot above if the manga had delve deeper into the characters' inner struggles/feelings/actual romantic developments... but none was present. The main girl was cute enough and I loved how she was very good with making herbal medicines, but her development and the scenes were so hastily done that I had no chance of relating/bonding/getting attached to her at all.

I wouldn't have batted an eyelash had she been killed and then fed to the dogs. In fact, I would probably given this manga a higher rating if that had happened.

The art was good though, and the guy was hot--so it deserves credit in that respect. However, the plot and story falls behind by a stretch. Don't waste your time if you want to read something complex.

I'm happy that I finally read the prequel to this(never knew there was one) so now things make a bit more sense. Although I put this series on hold because I CAN'T STAND how boy crazy the main girl is, she's so superficial in my eyes. Other than that, the art is beautiful, and I shall try and finish it.
