Most of the reviews on this series are way too critical. This series is short, cheesy, romance goodness (Like power of love type).

That being said, I do feel sorry for the mangaka. It seems like he genuinely did have some good ideas, but he had the misfortune of being paired up with one of the worst SJ editors in recent history. When the series switched editors towards the end, there was a noticeable increase in quality (I still ...
