First this story is about a 16 years old high school girl named Miku Yamada.
She has been in love with a former Bad boy named Fujioka Kyouhei since middle school.
She has done everything to make him notice her.
But everytime she tries to confess her love to him. He either thinks that she's joking or changes the conversations. (Cos he's really dense and i guest he has some stupidity, but anyway i loved him:P)
And everytime Miku gets mad at him she always swear that she will give up and get over him. But that's not as easy as read more

when i first saw this manga, i thought this could be another ordinary high school romance, but i was wrong. the story plot is great,a 16 year-old girl trying to get the love of her life but with a really great plot twist
. the art is fantastic, it includes several hot guys and cute girls! the characters are good. and it has some several one shots included which made me wanna read this manga over and over again. i never get tired of reading it. it really is a very good manga.

hope this review helps!

The story wasn't really bad.. However, I hated the fact that it's just the same stories like other typical mangas - well not really the same, should I say almost? I wasn't really expecting that much in this manga but I just hoped that it would be somewhat unique even if it's just a little. Aside from that, one more thing why I was interested in this manga was because of the art. I never read manga that has a really bad art 'cause it bothers me. I would give a perfect 10 for the art - I love how the mangaka draws. For the read more
