Shuusei Kugayama is the "prince" of his high school, but he always turns down confessions—including one from Aoi Nishimori's best friend. Although she initially hates him for this, when Shuusei moves in next door to Aoi, who lives alone, she starts thinking that he might not be such a bad guy after all...

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 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

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.

Okay, like every one else here, I was dissapointed.
Story: Pathetic
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.

Art: Decent
The boys are handsome but girls totally suck.

Character: Poor
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 read more
