A Slow Descent into Mediocrity

And the main suspect is "harem", along with a heaping dose of arrogance by the mangaka and possibly her editor.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The first volume or so was quite good; I had this rated at a 10 because I really enjoyed the stoic guy x lovey-dovey girl pairing. Then other girls started getting introduced for no reason, the Pageant arc basically derailed the story, and character development has been more or less zero. Kuroiwa is about as lifeless a protagonist as Douki-kun from Ganbare, Douki-chan (although he DOES have eyes, so that's something) and he and Kawai Mona are static. This wouldn't be a problem if the manga had longer chapters and had done us the favor of not going into an extended run.

Alas, the lack of character development, harebrained storytelling, and the crummy Pageant arc turned a manga with incredible potential into something I'd rather drop than keep reading.

Put simply, good premise, terrible execution. I can't recommend it in good faith, although maybe it might be worth looking back on it once it's finally over.

I've already expressed my displeasure at the direction Hokkaido Gals took at length, and unfortunately this manga seems to be heading down a similar path, with added absurdity. As the reviewer below me mentioned, the

arc was ridiculous (and not in a good way), and this next arc that has come up after it involving

Mona's longtime BFF suddenly developing feelings for Medaka
is just completely unnecessary and painful to read.

I'm going to keep reading for now, hope for improvement, and hope that the Harem tag doesn't rear its ugly head in the future, as it is thankfully absent from this page at the moment. The art is great, it has a very clean lineart style that I love, so if nothing else, maybe that will keep me reading in the long run.

Painfully average. The
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Beauty Pageant ark was very distasteful to me. They literally fling water balloons at each other in the gym while wearing bikinies... Yeah it is an ecchi manga but I swear to god that tag wasn't there when I first started the manga. fyi those water balloons looked like used condoms. I don't even have a problem specifically with that part. Just the Beauty Pageant part.
Also the person below this said it right. The manga like many others had a good premise at the start but derailed severally. I wouldn't have even started this had I known it was going to end up being a harem manga.

I really like the premise, the art and specially the girls. You know when they introduce the Yuri girl to be the annoying protector? Well, she's actually a wingman on this one, I was actually surprised. The others are also really fleshed out for the genre and I whish I could see this cast on a different plot. But that's it. FMC only recognizes her love on chapt 42 so you can really wonder how the author keeps milking the same idea for so long. Kinda funny on the start but it became so boring that I had to drop.

Just another generic harem

Yeah, no. Early chapters seemed fine, but it's now turned into another harem manga with multiple girls falling for the guy with seemingly no personality.

It's really cute. Though ecchi/fanservice is extremely prominent (less so later)

So ya this series is cute. Art is great. This isn't a series where the main character's archtype is cute innocent kind girl or even cute non-innocent kind girl. She's not what I'd personally call a 'good' person, neither is the MC. They're both flawed characters and yet it's cute. The rival character seems like a mostly good person, though also cooler. (EDIT: actually that's harsh, the guy isn't a bad person he just has stuff to learn) That's kinda a manga cliche though, I remember it being discussed on Bakuman. Just haven't been reading manga much in the last 8 years so forgot it can happen in romances.
bah I'm rambling.
EDIT: Ch 43. I'm enjoying this a lot! Time to bump it up 8.5->8.9
Edit 2: The ecchi has increased again :/ It can be kinda ridiculous at times.

Edit 3: as others have said, the beauty pageant was this series at its worse and was mostly distasteful. I'd pretty much recommending skipping the whole arc except the ending, really :/
And having a third love interest is entirely unnecessary, especially as that character is perfect in a separate function I won't clarify for spoiler reasons.
Post-pageant it still has some great parts, mostly the Mona chapters where she secures time alone with him. I keep reading because overall, it's still good and I think it can be better, like it once was (or close to it).
It also must be said that Medaka's character growth is too slow, now. He's had about 3 instances of growths, or rather, spurts of growth every 30 chapter (whereas Mona's was very gradual/constant and the other girls are established enough I'm fine with how they are) and in between them he's static. This has him feeling flatter than the rest of our main cast.

But I'll leave my rating as is until the series is over and then readjust it/

Repetitive but cute

Every chapter is just her trying to win him over. More female characters slowly get introduced. The art is nice. As a girl I don’t really care about the ecchi shots, but they’re pretty infrequent and mild. It’s a wholesome cute story, but it is getting a little boring.
