Volume 1


Aoi Nishimori is a high school girl who lives alone in her own apartment, but to her surprise, she discovers that the prince of her school, Shusei Kugayama, has moved in next door! To add to this, a series of crazy happenings result in the two living together under a single roof! Shusei is known to be a heartless guy, and Aoi particularly hates him after he coldly rejected her best friend, so a life of cohabitation seems like a recipe for disaster. And yet, Aoi somehow can’t stop her heart from pounding when she’s with Shusei...

I haven't made a review in months but just came back just to give people a warning and basically a whole signal flag waving review to stay clear unless you like feeling like a idiot for still reading. First off, I definitely didn't read through all of this and skipped to most important parts but I still got a great understanding of the entire thing.

Story 5/10: Now... the story isn't bad at all it's your regular shoujo type situation of people living together and they fall in love. I love shoujo romance manga and it's one of my favourites to read but this... this I read more

This story honestly disappointed me... when I saw this story labeled as a "hot read" I though I would give it a shot~ -and this is what I was presented with.

story- Very predictable, nothing unexpected, in fact every time something happened I though to myself, "saw that coming". There is nothing original in this story. The pace is slow and I got board. I only kept reading because I was hoping the plot might actually do something!

art- The art was fine, although... most of the girls looked really similar to each other and that kinda bugged me. -but the art was decent.

characters- (below) v

Shuusei- This read more

I can't describe my disappointment. First chapter seemed really good so I was glad to find a shoujo manga as good as this. But after a couple of chapters it turned a pathetic story I've ever read. I just can't see love between the main characters.

Story - Cliche.

Art - Well, not bad.

Characters - There is a guy that is called "Prince" in his school, he's handsome, cool but bothersome. And also self- centered. And there is a stupid girl who is in love with him. That's all.

Enjoyment - I don't feel like reading this anymore but I hate to leave things halfway.

I LOVE THIS MANGA! I am a shoujo maniac and romance maniac and I check this manga everyday for updates. Its typical romance yes but it has what I want: hot guy who's hard to understand but sweet, nice girl who doesn't cry all the time, good art, great romance scenes, EVERYTHING a shoujo maniac needs. :D

Yes, we've encountered this many times before, girl and the prince of the school living together but there's sexual tension almost immediately and the guy has a wicked sense of humor and the girl is cute, plus new characters are introduced often who are fun and have read more
