Heh no wonder the artwork felt kinda similar...

Bit of cliche stuff so far but maybe the story will improve with this almost like a parody like way of characterizing the two main leads. Seems like the main guy Ayase isn't what everyone thinks in his private life L

I think they add stuff that may seem cliche, then they turn it up a couple of notches. Like the OP said, it's probably a parody of the typical shoujo manga. I love reading manga that does just that lol.

I'm liking the chibi artwork, looks kind of unique.

Lol. I don't think this manga looks too promising. It's kind of creepy because he's like 24 and she's 16. I know I'll probably read this even though it's bad just to practice reading in a foreign language.

LOL So he likes butts just like me. XD That reaction to seeing her ass though.
And I don't get why she seems upset about it. What's wrong with a ''prince'' liking butts?

That's not the "ideal" way a prince should behave in shoujo standards. xD

I was searching hi and low for their age gap and damn. Why can't they make something like the kid is like almost college? Why always a freshman. Isn't child abuse?

It's bothering me but you know the feeling of wanting to read it. I'm so conflicted. Unless he doesn't make a move on her until she turns legal or something like in other shojo manga I've read.

Even if she was almost in college, it's still a kid and waiting for her to grow up just to have sexually intimate relationship with her is still creepy. It's actually why I don't read a lot of shoujo anymore because when I was a kid, age gaps like that don't seem big, but when you're older, you're like he's 8 years older than her, that's a third of his life and half of her's. It's just downright predatory and it's weird to me how many titles are age gap now that I'm old enough to know it's weird.

Anyway, 2 years on, I'm no longer conflicted, there's plenty of normal romances without predatory age gaps to keep my heart beating.

I was like that as well. I don't mind the big age gap and all and it makes my heart flutter but nowadays it bothers me a lot. What's bothering is most of these shojo mangas are the one usually get licensed. It's like they're promoting it.



I guess I'll pass this one. I've read one that have big age gaps but the guy usually puts space between them and doesn't make a move on the girl because she's a minor. I guess I'll pass on this one. I'll just find other good shojo mangas...

Exactly, and yeah I noticed that too, like this is licensed in English. They licensed some weird titles when I was younger, but that these shoujo are the ones being licensed as opposed to other titles which aren't creepy at all, but just as good is :/.

Is the other manga you're talking about the one with the guy in like the bunny or fox mask?

I know. There are a lot of unlicensed mangas that are not in this age gap relationship that is creepy. One of the reasons I stopped before was because there's too much manga and anime with excessive fan service, creepy and just plain doesn't make any sense.

I knew it was one or the other. He's more than half her life older than her, in the other one I'm thinking of, she's even younger and he's even older like in thirties I think, which is just too gross and bizarre.

Either way I agree with you. It's why I've stopped in the past, too, but I find it is much more prevalent in shoujo manga and in slice of life/seinen manga. So, I've started to avoid those. It has pushed me towards reading more "book" books as opposed to comic books and manga, too.
