How much do you love a person? REALLY love that person? Enough to stick with them no matter how they treat you?
This story is about Tsubaki Beniko, who is secretly "dating" the oh-so-perfect Shirotae Shiki. Despite them being a couple, Shiki doesn't act like their dating and pretty much treats her coldly. Still, Beniko tries to be a loving girlfriend to Shiki. But she would like it if Shiki was a little more lovey to her. So what should she do to get him to show his feelings more? And what will happen now that an old childhood friend comes into the picture ....
Not so bad. Funny at times, but kinda cliche in my opinion. I've seen it before. Girl likes the mean but perfect guy. Then, old childhood flame comes in and things get dramatic. Bleh.
:: Art (8) ::
Pretty good, actually. Nice designs, especially for the prince (of course) Shiki.
It looks pretty nice when it's up-close to the face of the characters, but when it's a bigger scene, then I guess you can say it's a little sloppy.
:: Character (5) ::
Now this I didn't enjoy too much. Another little shojo girl who's in love with a guy that doesn't treat her so well. Yet, she tries and she tries and she tries.
And Shiki? Cool, athletic, good-looking, and mean. Hmm, where have I read that before? And the childhood friend that comes in? He's pretty funny (thank goodness). But .... he's the one that's supposedly is gonna make the other jealous. Nothing new. But I guess it was pretty ok when put all together.
:: Enjoyment (5) ::
I guess I [i]kinda[/i] enjoyed it. But did I love it? No. It was good to kill time. Good maybe for a laugh or two. But it kinda angered me at certain areas. Again, especially at the over-used character types.
:: Overall (6) ::
Meh, that's what I feel. The art gave it a point or 2 maybe. Characters could've been better. A lot better. Ending was .... disappointing to me. And it came out of nowhere.
So, if you plan on reading something to waste time or if you're bored, then you can read this one. But if you want something to really get into, then I suggest you find something else.
