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?!

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

Outstanding!

I have really enjoyed every bit of Hapi Mari. Hokuto... and Chiwa.. their love is absolutely the best kind. I was mesmerized by Hokuto's love and affection to his lover, Chiwa.

The characters are well put together, you can emotionally get attached to them and get lost in the great art. The story and overall was perfect.
I don't think I will read a better romance manga than this ever again.

Truly recommended.

(I intentionally listened to the song: Rude- Eternal Youth. Which made the atmosphere while reading way too intense).

Hapi Mari thank you for being a part of my life.

I find it overrated. Josei plot with shoujo approach. The result is what happens when an ok chef try avant garde menu, still edible but obviously feels like a waste as a simpler menu will taste batter. If you're still puberty, this will be an awesome series. But if you past those hormones-filled phase, you won't find it as great as people claim.

But hey, the story is full of pleasure buttons of shoujo genre, so if you like it, it might help to dull the faults. I mean, being average and offering no benefit to the relationship, but receiving uncondional love from a cool handsome read more

It's a mind blowing manga for a normal american girl like me.
It'll give you highs and lows and keep you interested. If you like romance mixed with a lot of drama this is probably the story for you.

Story(8):
I really enjoyed the story, and it kept me wanting more. I basically was real sad when it ended. But be warned, theres a lot of smut, and I mean ALOT! But if that's your thing (it is mine, smut makes for an interesting story most of the time) then this will be a great manga for you to read. If you don't like smut, don't read it. read more
