Preliminary (14/? eps)
So far, reading the manga has been a so-so experience. Since there's not much of a bigger plot in place (yet? idk), my admiration for the art has taken much of my score. Just like the FL, I find the ML really attractive. Think "tiktok edits of pretty anime boys you'll never know who because OP didn't give the sauce so there's a 50/50 chance you'll forget about said anime boy in 5 minutes or pine for him forever" type of anime boy attractiveness.

On the note of finding people attractive and having crushes, FL is pretty relatable. There /is/ something different with finding someone ...

Preliminary (22/? eps)
I adore the art style and find the storyline to be very fresh and new, but I am beginning to lose interest. I think this story is lacking depth and character building. The characters are becoming glaringly one dimensional and the story is getting too far along to accept that. Not much is happening in terms of the plot either, a love triangle was poorly introduced and that didn't add anything to anything. There's been some cute moments so far but overall, it's just an okay read. I think I'll give it another ten or so chapters and before deciding if I want to drop ...

OK... Ummmm... ***may contain little spoilers***

this manga is cute and all at first sight BUT why does the FL literally have ZERO self respect 😅 she just lets the guy messes with her as he likes without giving her an appropriate clarification... I feel like the manga is trying to allegedly do all the romantic tropes but this just came out wrong and toxic... not any hot f boy can do whatever he wants under the line "I just felt like it"... I hate it when some shoujo do this trope... tbh it's more creepy and slimy than romantic...
honestly, shoujo in general needs to grow ...
