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?!

I haven't written a review before so I will ask readers to bear with me. This manga was recommended by someone I consider elite when it come to mangas and animes. I was hooked from the on-set. It is not one of those animes that wastes too much time delving into the main story. Despite the somewhat unrealistic circumstance that surrounds the two main characters, Chiwa and Hokuto, I enjoyed how the author made the development of their relationship very realistic.

For me, both characters strengths lie in the simplicity of their personalities with Chiwa being your average working girl and Hokuto being the serious, 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

Basically, these two people who do not know each other get married. One is the powerful boss of the company, the other is a little minion who works there. The story follows their relationship, and I guess the basic question of- can you fall in love with someone who doesn't love you? With someone who you did not love before?

I gotta say. I like this this story. The art was fine - it is clean, the expressions are great, and I can follow who is saying what! More importantly though, I like the two main characters. I really enjoy them! Haruto and Chiwa. Chiwa is read more

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
