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!

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.

Starting about Volume 9, the drama builds to silliness. You know that if the 2 of them are in a room and the miscommunication might possibly be cleared, then something will happen. He writes a letter, you know she won't ever get it. Its a frickin joke. So good, but... Probably best to just wait on this and read the end to find out how things turn out. All this silly buildup does nothing to advance the story, and skipping it wouldn't hurt things in the slightest.

The plot and the setting is just too similar to the classic maison ikkoku except this time around, more ecchi, protagonist more pathetic than anything else I've ever read. Humours are cheaply done with very generic situational comedy.

I got bored after 3 volumes... if you think this is good, read maison ikkoku - at least the humours are more well-done and the characters' interaction/feeling are more reasonable.

The protagonist is the most pathetic character I've ever read about, oh well, if he was even a standard comedy manga indecisive guy, he'd have gotten the girl right away.

*Edit* Ok, he's still a crybaby, but he's gotten better, i do appreciate the growth in this series, though I find that these roms have too many troubles piled up at a time, mangakas need to pace a little more imo

I liked the early chapters of this Manga but by now I've gotten boored with it. There are only so many times that a girl can dump on a guy, even by mistake, and he still chase after her. By now, I'm hoping he dumps her for good and goes with the girl chasing him. No man is this persistent.

Don't read. There are tons of better Rom/Com out there.

Ok, i like romantic comedies like anyone, but this doesn't work for me.
Boring characters, the art can get awful sometimes and the story isn't anything special.
To those who compare this to Love Hina: when love hina is a funny and one of the better Rom/Com out there, this is nothing compared to it. Fuguno (yume) is a total - repeat: total - loser and a crybaby. I can't stand him... -.-
At least Keitaro (LH) isn't a crybaby, and not a terrible loser, he works hard to get into todai.

Edit: The current cover for the fifth volume looks nice. Don't get fooled by it! The art sucks!

In this manga are more cliches than in ten others together, it`s just too sweet and innocent for me. It´s more like a love fairytale in modern ages and anything but realistic, it would be fine but this is so far away from reality I couldn`t force myself to read more than a few chapters.
