I mean, the story is very very very very very cliched, normal, but its still worth the read.

It's cute, althogu it is cliche, you still want to keep reading on. And I liked that it was fast and did not last forever and ever like some other mangas :)

Unoriginal, but still cute
Awesome. Their sooo cute :)
Developed and lovable considering the author had only 45 pages to make them

Really, this manga is a complete waste of 15-20 perfectly good minutes of anyone's life.

Story: 1/10

Art: 3/10
Well this was the only good thing in the manga. And that is not saying much at all. For middle-schoolers, I kinda-sorta-somewhat ...
