Synopsis

Men: they're the root of Takanashi Chiwa's problems, which is why she never had the time nor the opportunity to have a boyfriend in her entire life. A full-time office lady and a part-time hostess, she works night and day to pay off her dad's debt from his failed business. One night at her part-time job, a high-class customer has her fired. Then the next day, she's called in to see the president—whom she had never even seen before in the office—only to find out she's to marry him! But what kind of guy is Mamiya Hokuto anyway? Will he become one of Chiwa's problems, or will he save her from them? And will this marriage even last?!

After hours of searching for a good anime that was not about high school drama, I came across this one manga! This manga is definitely is for a mature audience, if you know what I mean! This made it important for me because I had just finished high school so I wanted to read something a bit more mature.

What I liked about this manga the most was the art. All the characters were drawn beautifully so this made the manga bearable in my part. There is good character development and life lessons that you can apply in your life with your significant other (trust read more

The saying ‘never judge a book (manga) by its cover’ is like a spot-on adage when it comes to Hapi Mari.

The series starts off with an overused plot: poor-girl-marries-rich-stranger-to-pay-off-father’s-debts and whether there could be true love in a marriage that was built upon a monetary mutually beneficial arrangement.

Story:

Despite the cliched plot and smutty moments (which to my surprise wasn’t that overwhelming), the story itself actually has depth and I was somewhat amazed at how the concept of marriage is exemplified here.

The mangaka adopts a realistic approach towards illustrating the challenges young couples struggle with in today’s society. Chapters are often slapped read more

Both girls (Kotoko in Itazura na Kiss & Chiwa in Hapi Mari) aren't very smart, tend to cry a lot, and act clumsy. Both guys (Irie in Itazura na Kiss & Hokuto in Hapi mari) are important to a company and act all cocky/rude against the girl, and in both stories the girl tries to make the guy love her.
They both have the employee-employer relationship. In both the characters are similar - naive woman and a womanizer. In both they are trying to keep their relationship secret. And they have a reaaaally similar feeling. Also the art is similar, but they are both josei, so that should be understandable. Since MS has vampires/supernatural you might not like it, but I still think (as a seinen/mature reader) it is better, more real josei than Hapi Mari. Hapi Mari has more....shoujo vibe.
