i wish this mangaka can stop creating mangas like this

she wrote this and Hot Gimmick. see the pattern? both have abusive male lead, pushover female lead, and unnecessary harem. both romanticize the abusive relationship between the leads; she got locked up for god's sake! and this was meant for women, i wish the mangaka would stop already.

other than that, the plot was badly paced, everything was rushed, no explanations. characters were two-dimensional at most, the actions they took had no coherent motive,, as if they act for the sake of taking an action.
(well, tbh, i dropped it afted the 2nd volume so i might have missed a lot)

I picked up this one randomly, and I'm sorry I did: the protagonist is both irresponsible and uses indecision as an excuse for using people and being a overall horrible person. I have no idea why she's the centre of a harem. The monk equally horrible, being of the "entitled" sort, but if I start, I'm just going to go on forever. There are no redeeming qualities to this work what so ever. Well, to be fair, there was a kind of interesting couple in the background, but it really isn't worth reading the manga they appear in.

The relationship between the monk and Junko is just toxic. I find myself liking the monk (because I love yanderes who are possessive, but not to a serial killer level) and his lovable sides that appear sometimes but one moment later when he gets really forceful of what he wants in a wife in Junko, I hate him. He knows she has dreams of going overseas, but he wants her to stay with him at the temples and be the 'perfect' wife. That's selfish, controlling, and overbearing. I'm going to be so angry if this manga's ending turns out to be Junko giving up her dreams to become a mere monk's wife who can't do ANYTHING she wants to freely.
This is a Aihara Miki's typical reverse harem, which always has cliched male characters around female protagonists slowly creeping in to become a romantic interest. As much as I really enjoy her reverse harem, I do wish some male characters such as the other teacher and the student who crossdresses had a whole separate manga with romances with just them. I just feel like they're really interesting characters that are gone to waste.

I agree what most previous commenters said about this manga, what a messed up characters at one time i like that one character but then it's either hit or miss as expected from this mangaka. I'll wait for this to be completed to read this manga again but it's depend how those mcs and plot develops.

But content-wise, this manga is terrible. The direction, in which the so-called plot moves is terrible. The characters constantly contradict themselves with the stupid things they say and do, and I find myself unable to like anyone, save the friend of the female lead, who is at the very least, rational in her own way.

BUT despite all the negative things I have to say about this manga, I will admit that one of sensei's strong points is the ability to make me want to read more, even though everything the character's do makes me cringe.

Hot Gimmick, another work by her, was something I hated, but could not stop reading.

As much as I hate her cliché's, doormat female leads, and domineering male characters, she is just too good at making me want to read more. I love harems, jealous guys, and drama (in moderation).

Anyone willing to give it a try, you will see what I mean if you're an avid shoujo reader.

All the characters are such messed up human beings. Their behaviour is destructive to themselves and those around them. The main character is weak and has no sense of self worth; a victim of her own stupidity. If you met them in real life you would go out of your way to avoid them.

Stayed for the 'Yandere-ness'

First thing's first: I detest this manga. Why? Simple, it's disgusting. Nothing good will ever come by following their principles.

But man, the monk guy is a yandere. He is actually rather 'tame' for a yandere, cause he doesn't really attempt murder. But still, his way of 'showing love' (also known as abuse) for the ever-so-stupid Junko-sensei is soooooooo....*sighs*. Sadly, that is always a plus for me.

Let's just be honest.

I read this only for Momoe x Arthur. I hate practically every single other character and, even then, I sometimes fluctuate between hating or loving Arthur. The only likeable character, in my opinion, is Momoe. Why? Everyone is either self-interested, self-absorbed, annoying, indecisive, or a major manwhore/slut—and using such derogatory words to describe certain characters in this manga make me feel like I'm insulting all the manwhores/sluts in the world (you never know, some of them might have a really nice personality but just like sex too much to function), that's just how terrible some of these manga characters are.

Otherwise, I feel really nervous about all the drama that is happening with Arthur and Momoe (considering Arthur's past) and I hope the author doesn't ruin the only "good" couple in this entire manga.

Just no. I tried. I really did. The main female lead is just so stupid!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"I want to live my own life, so I hate you. Wait I like you. Oh no I don't. Did you just become a psycho and lock me in a room? I guess you're the one for me! Love ya'!"
The side character who is a friend of the female lead... I REALLY wished she would become the main lead. She's at least likeable. And I've read up to chapter 18 thinking at some point it has to get better (or I get to read about the side characters romance because it seems more interesting), but it doesn't.

It just doesn't...
