Story: It's amazing how you were taken in by situations that happened and not realize the significance of it until it was mentioned later on in the story. It had a wow effect on me as it also broke news about the character which shocked me. Great way of presenting information and keeping the reader craving for more.
Art: It is quality art work that's typical of manga from this period. Not many typical poses that showed off the beauty of the characters. They didn't sell sex (aka sex appeal is not that high) but it's really great at portraying scenes as needed by the story.
Character: Somehow I could understand the feelings of the character through how they were portrayed. You can understand that because of the character type of the female lead, that she would fall for the guy. How the guy would fall for the female lead because of her character too. Not amazing characters but they are interesting enough to sustain interest.
Enjoyment: Somehow each chapter kept me hungry for more to find out what's going to happen next. This story made me feel the pain/aches of being in such a realistic relationship. I seriously couldn't wait to finish the whole story in one go.

There''s no boring filler (so far anyway) and before you know it, one episode it's over! That's how good it is. You will not find it draggy at all. There's always new challenges and it's amazing how the creator can come up with so many more new items.
It's never boring cause there's so many different aspect of it that is shown with each new challenge. The emotional value attached to the compeittion, the people involved are somehow intriguing, the research of the ingredients to make the requirements of the competitions and, of course, the technique of showing the actual competition itself in an almost astronmic way. read more

Suprisingly, the development of the story is good. It's doesn't just dive straight into the love story like how most shoujo would go. Instead it concentrates on friendship (so far into 3rd volume).
The story is heartwarming, touching and somehow makes me want to read on.
Usually i would skip pages to get to the juicy part but with this manga, the opposite happened. i didn't want to miss out anything! It's like i have to read between the lines/expression/body language of the charaters to get what is the hidden message/meaning!
The art work may not look impressive but if you look carefully, it's quite well drawn. Also, my friend who recommended it said that with each volume (as they age) you can see how the characters grow up (literally).
I'm suprised it's not even in the manga data base. This is something that people shouldn't miss out on. read more
