I picked this out because I wanted to read a 'delinquent romance' story. In that aspect, it didn't particularly meet my expectations.

Story: 6

I can't even call this a shoujo cause the main pair don't even end up together and the female lead never even acknowledges her feelings!!

Around chapter 15 is when the story gets ridiculous and the forced redemption arc for the antagonist is just so frustrating. And the plot point ...
