Nina Yamada wishes to fall in love with a cute boy who will protect her no matter what. In the midst of complaining to her friends, two attractive boys fall out of the sky right in front of her. They introduce themselves as Zero and Ichii—two candidates who are taking a magical exam to become professional wizards. As part of the test, the duo is tasked with finding the "Crystal Pearl" and protecting it for six months from the other applicants. After the examination period, the pair that possess the pearl will automatically become full-fledged wizards.

When the two discover that Nina had accidentally mistaken it for candy and swallowed it, the boys have no choice but to act as her full-time bodyguards for the rest of the exam until an antidote to remove the pearl can be created. Safeguarding a human from their crazy wizard candidate foes is a lot more challenging and exhausting than Zero and Ichii realize. Will they be able to pass the exam while protecting Nina's life?

Mamotte! Lollipop is a typical shojo manga with magic in it. It's pretty cute. You would really only like it if you want a sweet love story aimed at young girls, or if you want fluffy artwork.

It was a quirky premise, girl swallows a pearl by accident, turns out that was the object of a magical final exam, now she has two cute bodyguards, but as it progressed it turned pretty cliche. Love triangle. Villains chasing her. Well there was some clever writing and funny gags and you could really feel Nina's anxiety over having to chose between Zero or Ichi, but some chapters were read more

Mamotte! Lollipop will leave you excited & hungry for more. Michiyo Kikuta has left me satisfied tremendously.This story relates to normal teenagers & pulls you in with every funny & cute moment. I love this manga because of how it somewhat relates to my life when i have boy problems & just how wonderfully drawn the characters are makes me want to be more detailed with my own artworks. There is not one moment in this manga that is boring so i would suggest this book to anyone who loves high school/fairy tales with wizards.

Mamotte! Lolipop is a typical shoujo manga where a girl gets two hot guys to love her. I personally don't think it deserves the rank it is in now, because it is extremely predictable. However, if you want to have a few laughs, say "aww" out loud for the mushy love scenes, and cute artwork, go for it.

Story: 4

What the synopsis on MAL doesn’t tell you is how these two “hot” boys fall into her lap—she eats the crystal pearl designed to be the retrieval item needed to pass their magic exam. As you can already tell, Nina isn’t exactly the brightest girl. The rest of the manga involves Nina being constantly saved by her two potential love interests and being a damsel in distress. I don’t know what the point of having two of them there was when I already knew which one she would end up with when I finished the first volume. Scratch that, I know the answer: to read more
