Okay, I know it probably deserves an 9 but I just finished reading the sequel (Bittersweet Cafe) and compared to it the story doesn't seem a good. Don't get me wrong I loved reading it, but at times I wondered why they really fell in love.
I mean I know the point of this is just the sexual action but I didn't get why he was so lovey dovey after sexual intercourse that was basically used as payment to cover up his day job? which I have no idea if he's a prostitute or cook in the beginning.
But then it started to get really sweet, towards the middle and end. And all the problems with the story in the beginning really went poof! because of how nicely it wrapped up.
But I'm not sure if it was just me, but they totally didn't look like high schoolers. BUt! again the story made up for that by showing them grown up, in the end of this and the sequels.
So, basically this is the kind of story that gets really better as it progresses.
I was really happy with the art. Yes, Megumi is sooo cute in this. Nicely drawn characters and everything!
I kind of explained this in the beginning of the review but you do get attached to each of the characters towards the end.
I can't say I enjoyed it every single page. But It was really enjoyable.
Okay, so basically I'm suggesting this BECAUSE THE SEQUEL IS SO DAMN CUTE!
