I picked up this manga looking for something light and quick to read. I expected this story to be a generic middle school romance from the get-go, and in many ways it is. However there are some unexpected lessons in trusting your friends and in hard work that as so sweet and genuine you rarely see this in the newer cookie-cutter series that are out there.
Ayuka's outgoing personality is totally refreshing, and the troubles she faces are realistic. Now that is to say, this is STILL a very generic story. But it has a lot of heart. It's definitely geared towards a middle schooler
audience, so keep that in mind should you decide to read this.
