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.

tldr: read it if you are just looking for a smutty josei/shoujo manga with no real substance in terms of plot

story - 4, started off decent and went downhill

character - 4, some side characters are amusing but the lack of dimension really shows in the main characters
enjoyment - 4, poor plot and characters ruined my enjoyment despite the art
overall - 5, the art can’t cover the poor areas of the manga

This is far from the worst manga that I’ve ever read but it puzzles me how it managed to get such a high rating. I had enjoyed the ...

Upon opening the pages of "Hapi Mari: Happy Marriage!?", I was instantly captivated by the stunning visuals and intriguing characters. Yet, as I delved further into its narrative, certain themes began to unsettle me.

The idea of romanticizing these themes and using intimate encounters as a crutch for emotional fulfillment just didn't sit right with me. Even in fiction, I believe it's crucial for us to be critical of the messages we consume, especially when they touch on such sensitive topics.

In summary, while ...
