Romance can be told of in many ways, and while sometimes the ways it's told are repeated, if a storyteller can capture the essence of it then even something repeated can shine.
I'll get the reason that I rated this a 6 instead of higher out of the way now. It is an incomplete work. The mangaka stopped working on it, and as far as I know as of this review there are no plans for it to be continued. Which is a crying shame, because it was shaping up to be so good.
The artwork is gorgeous in places, and slightly awkward in others. Overall, though,
it was rather appealing to the eye and definitely won't subtract from the enjoyment. The character designs are simple, but that just makes the setting more believable.
While the designs are simple, the characters themselves were shaping up to be pretty intricate. The two mains were interesting, and the main guy himself had more balls than almost any other romance protagonist I've ever seen. Most of the side characters never got to have any development, although one character in particular was obviously well on his way to it.
There are some plot holes, but I think they are more due to the manga being dropped than due to errors with the story. There is a lot left to be told here, which makes it all the more unfortunate that it never will be.
It truly is a shame that this manga was not completed, as what I have read of it so far I would give an 8. However, it is what it is and as such I lower the score to a 6, and can't recommend to read it. As interesting as the story is and as cool as the characters are, when you hit the drop off point, you'll be left feeling disappointed.
