There's nothing wrong with the story and I loved it. However, the ending came quicker than I thought. I dived in blind and as I was reading, I thought there would be 50+ chapters. But then it suddenly ends on chapter 19. I don't hate it because of the abrupt ending since the mangaka isn't at fault here, it was the magazine it was being published in. The old magazine collapsed and the new one decided to end it pretty quickly.

In terms of the story, the side characters detracted a bit from the main read more

The plot of this series is very straight forward - A guy is helping his estranged childhood friend by tutoring her to achieve a high enough score on her exams, so that she could go to the top high school in his city where the guy she loves attends, meanwhile holding romantic feelings for her.

So far, this manga has been great. The characterizations are near perfect and there is room for further development. In just six chapters, we come to understand the two main characters very well and we also understand their motives. The main character is very unsocial and sees anything aside from read more
