After attending an all-boys high school for three years, Kouhai has finally made his college debut. Happy to have greater freedom, he is ready to get a girlfriend and has practiced various pick-up techniques for his crucial first day.

When he arrives on campus, he spots a beautiful dark-haired woman and approaches her holding a pack of cigarettes, ready to ask for a lighter and consequently strike up a conversation. As it turns out, she is actually his senior at the college and she immediately sees through his lousy attempt at attracting her interest. Despite his initial failure, Kouhai becomes infatuated with Senpai and is determined to make her his girlfriend.

Human relationships are complicated.

The manga shows them from an unique angle, where although timid one is extremely eager to always do something, while the other acts calm, sometimes even cold i'd say, but one ends up falling for the other.

Unlike your average romance things actually happen, and it shows us how the perks of adult life, work, college and such meddles in our love life, sometimes even ourselves and how we are used to leave some things unsaid.

In terms of the story, it's fairly straight forward; I wouldn't call it a unique storyline. Kouhai is a desperate college freshman that desires a girlfriend and meets senpai, a cool woman smoking by an isolated ash tray.

Mixed Feelings
This is ok! The initial concept of the series is cute and senpai is a very pretty character but over the course of the series the plot is pretty predictable and insular and the characters are a bit flat and annoying.

Story: The story is basic and very self-contained in the cafe space the characters work at. Not my cup of tea (cup of coffee, more like) but maybe if you like a Friends-type setup you'll like this. As a result, the stakes feel fairly low and unrealistic. Why don't any of these characters have any real lives or interests outside of their work and ...
