Story: 10/10 I used to read this manga way back then around 3 years ago. this manga and it story is wholesome, anyone who say otherwise have never read it and are closed mind. I must admit if a couple like this actually exist irl I'd root for them, well they won't tho 🙁.

Yeah i know they're 10 and 17, but trust me its wholesome. The story set on the " heartwarming and fluffly" vibe. Their relationship mostly focus on word of affirmations than physical interaction so no, it isn't pervert or pedophilic!! so the comment lower me may educate themselves -_-. Its quite platonic+romantic, satoko tends to treat him as a child at first and eventually grows to rely on him and treat him like an adult.

Art: its rough and confusing, i don't know what they're doing sometimes. If any of you are able to read Japanese then you should buy the Japanese manga coz it looks better there.

I Loved It So Much

Okay, to be fair, I'm the sort who hunts down mangas of this kind. I just like the dynamic between elder female protagonist who's paired with a younger male lead. It's adorable, to me at least.
But what I liked most about this series is the slow build to their romance. Logically, no one could keep their cool if they had to marry a child out of their families' whims. But the female protagonist tried anyway and ended up genuinely caring for the male lead which went pretty well!
You see, it'll keep you wanting to see more of their relationship and it'll keep you hoping to see how their relationship could progress. That's what I felt and I just hoped that the mangaka would've at least shown their future or of some sort. [SPOILER] Nope, she didn't. Which was kinda too bad. It would've been a more satisfying read that way.
But if I had to recommend something to my friends to start reading manga, this one would probably be up on the list. It's good.

If I could sum up this whole manga in one word it would be 'unfocused'. There's a few times when I was a bit confused as to what was going on, and the plot just kind of meandered about. Sure it's cute but it's unfortunately not very interesting.

Cutest. Romance. Ever.

Satoko (16) lives with her mother and there is a large debt they have to pay. Her mother decided to take the offer of an arranged marriage for Satoko. They both move to the house (mansion) of Satokos future (rich) husband. But her to-be husband, Fuuma, is now only 10 years old. This sweet slice of life manga shows us their everyday life and the beginning of their love.

Although the story seems unoriginal, the storytelling was done very well.

Art is simple, I don't think I found some panel badly drawn. The anatomy is good, the faces are beautiful, it was easy to tell the characters apart, but there weren't that many. The art is kind of sketchy. Actually it had that kind of art I like the most. But I can't give it a 10, because there wasn't really much drawn. Simplicity at it's best.

Satoko is a nice girl, optimistic, a bit of an airhead. I wouldn't say she was clumsy or stupid. She cared for people and wanted everyone to be happy. Kind of reminded me of Tohru from Furuba. You can't really hate her.
Fuuma, a 10 years old boy was quite unrealistic. He didn't act his age, but there were times he did. These were enjoyable. He was flustrated he is younger that Satoko. That made him even younger, lmao. You can't really hate him either.
Although I did hate her mother a bit....... Well, nothing's perfect.

I actually ate every page. Not literally. Couldn't stop reading. It was like made for me. Even the idea of an arranged marriage wasn't that horrible. It was really cute and sweet and I couldn't help but smile all the time I was reading it. Definitely something to read when you are down.

I don't always read mangas that have the younger male older female category but this was an exception because when I saw the cover...I was like:"Oh...this one (looks) cute" yeah I just decide like that. Plus it has the category of Male lead falls in love's just the right one to read at that time (my mood decides what category of the manga that i'll read)
and I was glad that I read this...this manga didn't fail me.
I really love the moments where Fuuma is jealous~

Sometimes the drawing confuses me, during those fighting scenes especially, everything's all mumble jumbled up, just don understand what's going on. I think that it's draggy, the main points were the beginning where they met and the end where everyone share their past memories, then after that it could have fast forward few years later when Fuuma was taller, and see what new interesting feels Satoko will have for him. One thing I liked was that it was mutual love when he was still shorter than her, that shows that she loves him no matter what.

this is a great manga for any shotacon out there. the young boy is mature in his thoughts and his feelings, but sometimes he shows his child-like cute sides that make you just want to squeeze him. the girl is the stereotypical helpless naive urchin, but i think she complement him in making him look more mature by taking care of her, but still retain the childish quality when she take care of him like a mother.

all the other characters are also good people that is easy to like. i also love the humour in here, where the hazy drawing becomes compacted when funny expressions were drawn in. the plot is inevitable, but is doesnt matter because the most important thing is the characters.

do read this if you love cute shota acting mature!

An awesome manga, i prefer shotacons like these, even though the child is 10years old you seriously get the feeling of a matured man. Satoko however shuld be more strong though.
