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?

Its suprisingly warm for a romantic comedy, But because it is a romantic comedy you shouldn't expect too much from it.
Little slow paced, but deserves a 8.5

I liked this series initially, as I enjoyed Parallel, the preceding work by Kobayashi. At this point though, the plot is getting extremely stale, and a major event needs to occur soon in order to revamp the storyline. Good, albeit simple, art, ecchi fanservice, typical shounen romance story aspects.

I couldn't stop thinking about this manga when I was reading it. Im giving it a 10 because it's rating is a little too low. Yeah it is being dragged out and yeah i wish he confessed volumes ago so the manga could be more about their dating relationship but oh well!!

Repetitive and stale. Only compromise is the rather simple but enjoyable drawing style. Cannot say the same about the plot though.

great laid-back ecchi rom-com

a very nice ecchi/comedy/romance in slice-of-life fashion. one of few mangas that gives a very 'homely' feeling, while having both ecchi/romance, which just add to the goodness. the main character is not the typical retard of these kinds of mangas, and the girls are also pretty good. the art style is different, but is well suited to this kind of story. pace is a bit slow, with the 1 a month releases, but that just enhances the laid-back feeling, though faster releases would have been nicer. overall, a great, and my favourite, slice-of-life ecchi rom-com.

Its like chapter after chapter of the same thing. Nothing surprising happens in it at all. I read it for like 4 volumes then I just started skimming through because it was like reading the same ole thing over and over. It to freakin predictable whats going to happen as well. If you seen any anime or read any manga where "totally wimpy dude gets like girl, totally wimpy dude has misunderstanding with girl, girl and dude make up then repeat with no getting to the point in site" then you have read this manga. Its pretty much that over and over and over and over and over and over. Though judging by all of the 10 ratings I see, there are people that like that type of plot.

To put it bluntly, if your looking for something original and/or creative, fast or even moderately paced, unpredictable, "ANYTHING" packed (well I guess you could say this is packed with mushiness but that's about it", aww inspiring, or even just creative then you should just look somewhere else..

a nice manga that would complement any bookcase full of manga.
the art work is the moste endering factor the girls are very cutely done and the guys have the odd air of wierdness about them. the story is very nice although it is indeed much slower then many other manga's
With that said i would highly recommend this to anyone who likes this genre but would be hesitant about people who dont enjoy it as much.
Still its a good read for all.!

pastel seems to be widly similar to parallel, which of course was the same mangaka.. pastel seems to be the longer version of parallel or it could be the parallel is the short version of pastel.. but all in all pastel is a great series i like this, althou if you hate harems, this isnt one to read
