Volume 1


When her parents need to move to another city for work, Aoi Nishimori decides to stay behind and starts living in an apartment on her own. Unexpectedly, she discovers that her next-door neighbor is Shuusei Kugayama, the "prince" in her high school who turns down anyone who confesses to him—including her best friend, Moe Shibuya. Aoi angrily confronts Shuusei for rejecting Moe; things quickly get heated, with Shuusei calling Aoi an eyesore, leaving her disappointed in the so-called "prince."

To make things worse, Aoi's clumsiness renders Shuusei’s apartment unlivable and the two have to live together in Aoi's apartment as a temporary solution. However, Aoi gets to know Shuusei better while living under the same roof and begins to realize that he is not the cold-hearted, despicable person she initially thought.

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

I don't normally write reviews, but this story disappointed me to the point where I needed to vent my frustrations. I finished it in hopes that it would get better, but it left me feeling mad and that I wasted my time.

I don't even know what to say but that everything was severely frustrating. The characters, plots, story-line, romance, everything was just so frustrating. I wasn't ever convinced of the romance, connection, or decisions made. Steer-clear if you want something that's going to make you happy, sappy, or deeply-moved.

Nobody had any real character development, their back-stories were predictable and yet unconvincing, and there was absolutely read more

Story 6/10
If you are able to tolerate the first 20-30 chapters, it does get better. Well, actually, its a bit weird because the manga starts off very interesting, then it just becomes stale, where things don't really progress at all. However, the story does pick up and gets more interesting. Cliché? yes. Predictable, yes? But if you are reading a Shoujo, those two are expected adjectives. I did find refreshing that majority of characters were able to go beyond the apparent cultural boundaries/shyness/politeness of Japanese people and were able to express their desires and make advances towards each other. I also think the read more

I don’t know why the reviews for this one is this sad, but I can’t really disagree with them either, since it seems might not everyone’s cup of tea. I was expecting something bad shoujo manga too, seeing how everyone was reacting, but I was surprised that I really enjoyed it!

Well, first, let’s mention the sexual harassment. I’m okay with a light-joking-kind of harassment, but if it’s getting repetitive, it can get very disturbing. Sadly, this one does. The FL got “attacked” a lot, to the point she seems stupid and weak. That’s why I understand for the reader who only read the previous dozens read more
