Story (9) - I thought the story was excellent. Nothing seemed to rushed, and you weren't left hanging. I enjoyed the simple romance, and the genuine feelings the main couple had for each other. I haven't read much manga that doesn't involve some sort of love triangle or harem aspect, so it was nice and refreshing to read something that was different from that. The sports aspect added some more depth and substance to the plot I think. I enjoy sports themes as well, so it was nice to have some of that mixed in with the comedy and romance.
Art (7) - The artwork was average, it didn't really stand out to me in anyway; but was still very enjoyable.
Characters (10) - I have to say that all the characters were all outstanding. Some of the characteristics of the main couple surprised me from time to time; it wasn't something I was expecting. It was a good surprise though. The other characters were hilarious, especially the senpai's.
My overall enjoyment of this manga is a 10. I'd definitely read it again. I'd recommend it to someone who is looking for a good laugh with some romance and sports elements thrown in as well.
If you are looking for a shoujo manga wherein the guy is the coolest/richest/most popular/most handsome/prince like...girl is in a harem situation...love rival that adds flare to the story...MC with traumatic past...dramatic scene that touches your heart...climax chapters that make your heart explode out of excitement...then off you go coz this manga is definitely not the one your looking for.
This is an uncomplicated love story of an average boy and an average girl who both experience love for the first time with a lot of silly sometimes troublesome side/supporting characters introduce along the way.
Yuuki maybe small but he's really strong and manly, the way
he act so manly despite his small size makes him more cute rather than cool, he's so adorable I can't blame all the other characters for wanting to tease him...Miki on the other hand can be the typical shoujo manga girl that always get to be harassed, needs to be saved, cries a lot, but she can be fierce when need be, she's very dedicated to yuuki that results to funny mishaps sometimes. All the soccer club member likes her but not in a romantic way, well, some of the member do like her romantically but never really tried to get in the couple's way which I like because I find the couple's relationship to be sweet, innocent, clumsy and light hearted that it doesn't feel right to give them a love rival.
What I like about this manga - everything! all the characters are lovable, the senpais are very funny. There are also a lot of scenes that will you make laugh and make you fall in love with the characters. The ending is satisfying too.
Will recommend it to someone who wants to read a shoujo manga with no complicated plot, over the top twist but still very enjoyable love story.
This manga is really simple. There's no drama, no cliches, no harems, no incompetent protagonist. Don't expect anything crazy going down. This is a nice easygoing romance, so if you're looking for a simple cute romance comedy, this is perfect.
Other than that, the comedy is funny. The main characters make a nice couple. Their love is cute and you want to cheer them on. Most of the characters lack personality, i don't even remember most of them. Even the main characters are underdeveloped. There's no back-story, the characters for the most part don't change throughout the series, and it skips large chunks of time. This
manga goes over the highlights of their relationship, not every single day of their lives like in other romances.
The last complaint i got is it's really short. I would have loved it if this was 20 chapter longer. My previous complaint's are a result of this. I suppose it's simplicity is one of this manga's strength's. If you're looking for a cute uplifting romance about normal people, this is a great read.
