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...
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
is the male main character in the story. He is cold, uncaring, and dense. Later on though, he develops feelings for Aoi. He becomes a little protective at times and he teases her a lot. 17 chapter in and still next to no development on his part.
Aoi- Our female lead on the other hand is nice, good at cooking, naive, and caring. She has a good personality... other then the part where SHE CANT MAKE UP HER MIND. First few chapters she hates Shuusei, then he moves in next door. Now she kinda likes him but tells herself it wont work. So she wants him to keep his distance, then she wants him closer, back and forth! She's also really easily manipulated be other people to the point where it pathetic...
Overall, I was really disappointed with this manga. So if you looking for a shallow and predictable romance shoujo then look no further. =D
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
their bad points in their own way.
Pretty nice art in my eyes. Very detailed, cute, hot. What more can I say?
The characters are pretty ok. Shuusei is a bit hard to understand but I'm hoping future chapters reveal something about his past. Aoi is not a typical cry baby so I'm happy about that too. She's a little indecisive but hey, no body's perfect.
Enjoyment: I enjoy this series very much. Each moment makes me squeal though now, in later chapters, there is a little more drama.
Okay, like every one else here, I was dissapointed.
I am a shoujo addict. I only read shoujo. And I can say I've seen better. It's too predictable and common. No unseen twists, no unseen changes...
If you usually read shoujo, you will see the future of the plot coming only by reading the summary.
The boys are handsome but girls totally suck.
The heroine is naive, caring, takes in a boy in her house, she starts to like him then she gets jelous... you know the story.
The main boy is too rude and mean on the girl, even though she let
him stay in her house.
The other characters don't appear much.
Well, if you've got no other choice, read it. It's not like it's not worth reading. It's true I've seen better but I've seen worse, too.
The reason why my scores are so bad it's because the girl is so so powerless. I hate weak heroines. I hate the fact she clings on to him and she doesnt say anything when he clearly makes fun of her. He is freaking staying in her room for free. If he is mean, kick him out. (Yea, I know he is staying there because she burned her room but still he had no right to go there. Just because she burnt two mats doesnt mean her appartment is now his)
