From Del Rey:

Poor Mugi Tadano... The sixteen-year-old is heartbroken after his girlfriend moves away. To ease his troubled state, Mugi takes a summer job at his friend Kazuki’s beachside snack bar/hotel on a tropical island. It seems like the perfect plan–until Kazuki sets Mugi up on a date with Yuu, who’s supposed to be, well, a little less than perfect. When Yuu arrives, however, she’s not the monster that either of the boys had imagined. In fact, Yuu is about the cutest person that Mugi has ever seen. But after Mugi accidentally walks in on Yuu in the bath, the girl is steamed. When trying to apologize the next day, he discovers that Yuu has left the shores of paradise. Mugi vows to search high and low for the beautiful Yuu, but will he ever see her again?

A decent shounen romance, but where's the developments? ^_^

The story starts of as a typical boy meets girl and then they somehow end up living together bigrazz but after the first couple initial volumes it just drags on with random stuff for 10 volumes.

The artwork is good enough for a rom/com with superb details on the environments however the character design are plain especially the male protagonist and the girls are sometimes hard to tell apart.

Final Thoughts:-
I thought this romantic comedy had some potential of being one of my faves, but that was ruined once the mangaka decided to drag on the story for ages. Not only is the story dragged on but it's full of every single type of cliche but at least it had plenty of jokes and the story is finally starting to get back on track. ^_^

In case people just read the negative comments below..
Spoiler (highlight to view)
well confession finally occurs V14
so... hey, maybe give it a shot? Typical series but the comments are kind of unfair, a lot of romance series drags out a few volumes, tad harsh to hit it just for that.

Nothing happens?

I have to agree with chickenwing on this one. It's suppose to be a comedy romance right? But nothing happens. Seriously.
I've read up to vol7, and you'd expect that some development between the two main characters should've happened, but no luck...
Is the mangaka dragging the story so he could make a 40 vol serie? It feels like that sometimes...
I'll keep reading, but if nothing happens the rating is going down. Way down.
Too bad, because this manga have potential.

well, i've read love hina, ichigo 100%, i"s, suzuka and a lot more romantic comedy type i could say that this is not the best but i still love it.

its a typical ecchi romantic comedy, an ordinary wimpy guy who just happen to attract the cutests of all the girls. personally its dragging, and i don't know if i could surely say that Yuu really likes Mugi..i think possessive is more like it, but that doesn't mean like or love in my book. it's more of like Mugi is doing all the good things for her and not vice versa. and i could symphatize for all those cute girls who liked him, confesses then got rejected..

well i dont like Mugi's indecisiveness either, got no balls at all. but i guess that's the main point of the story, coz if he confesses, then its downhill after the mangaka is just dragging it out, huh?

well i ranted, but as a whole i am a sucker for romance so i read it non-stop, and i love it..just not 100%, like ichigo, hehe..or even suzuka..

It's good but too slow, i hope waiting would bring something good because if it doesn't my rate for this manga will fall to 6.

First I enjoyed it.. really.. you can trust me about that. But after some vol. And when Yuu goes for severall month to another town to live with her mother.. just after that, I realized how boring a manga becomes when there's no evolving plot

15 volumes and its still ongoing?? when is this series gonna end? i mean the feelings between Yuu and Mugi are always the same, but noone dare confess.. this situation is pretty annoying imo.. i'd hope we could at least see some more about Yuu's side of the romance, yet we just get to meet new and useless charas who keep saying Y&M make a nice couple togheter, aahh the only reason im still folowing all of this is the art and the fanservice, the plot already died long ago (i swear, if yuu ends up saying she fell in love at first sight, i'm really going to Japan to kill Kobayashi:-D)

this is a good manga >_<" but i just hope that they release more than once a month >_<" well i guess i shoulnd't be complaining since im just leeching >_<":

it just annoys you a bit since it's too spread out... compared to parallel, pastel isn't as good. they should make him confess so the story gets somewhere >_<"
