From Viz:
All high school freshman Airi Hoshina ever wanted was to someday live in a cozy home with a loving husband, and find joy in the little things in life. As a result, she makes it her daily mission to get to school on time because school legend has it that the longer one's non-tardy streak is, the better boyfriend one will find. But just when her daily routine is working like clockwork, an occurrence of fairytale proportions threatens to disrupt her grand plan.

I can't even comment on this manga all I can do is praise it. The romance is sweet and innocent, still the story has depth. The characters have strong personalities without falling in the typical shoujo cliches and the artwork is just gorgeous.
I recommend this work of art to any reader.

This was another great read by this mangaka, i really just love the artwork but i had to toughen it throughout the first volume to really start to like it. The plot is great but if you are not a fantasy lover like me that first volume can be quite tough, but once that is over it is such a great story.

It was a really adorable manga. I loved and enjoyed it very much. The artwork was GORGEOUS - all I can say. Anyone who says otherwise must be crazy. Although this story doesn't go extremely deep (I'm NOT saying it doesn't have depth), it gets you in a feel-good mood throughout the story and has meaning in its purpose. Yes, maybe it might have some cliches (honestly, what story doesn't?) but cliches DO happen in real life so - ignoring that, I highly recommend it to romance/comedy/shoujo readers.

I so wanted this to be longer! That's the only thing that kept it from being perfect, as far as I'm concerned. I love the whole concept, and I totally loooove the guys - they're so pretty! *sighs* But it was far too short, I wanted more! I'd love an anime of this, too~~

I suppose if you're a huge shoujo fan, this is definitely a must-read. Very romantic, comedic, and no crappy endings. Highly recommended but only for people who can take shoujo stuff.

Shoujo lovers would love this! :"D
This is prolly first of its kind that I fell in love with. Hehe.
It's such a cute one. Even though I know Matsuri-sensei's story can be quite confusing...^^; but this is just a REALLY beautiful story!
I read this when I was just beginning to read manga's and I've already found a really nice catch! ='p
This is better than Vampire Knight. Well, to me it was and still is! (Although Vampire Knight has lovable characters too; Zero x Yuuki)
The characters are great and it gets you really giddy inside because of Aram and Airi. ♥
This is definitely worth the read!
If you're looking for a good fantasy, romance and totally cute manga to read. You must give this a try! ^,~
