I first started reading this manga about a year ago. I finished the anime (which sucked, by the way), and I saw that there was a "readaptation," Motto To LOVE-Ru, that followed the manga more faithfully, which sparked my interest in reading the manga. I walked into the manga, not expecting much, and the first few chapters were closely related to the first anime. I dropped the manga for a year after being disappointed, thinking it wouldn't change.

// WARNING: Contains Spoilers //

I read all the volumes, I really enjoyed the 161 chapters, the art is beautiful, the characters are endearing, some of their adventures are certainly negligible, but these make us discover a little more about these characters all the same. It's a 8 for me.

But wait a minute... There are 162 chapters and not 161? The 162nd doesn't exist, come on! If? Oh, let me check... Oh no... There is a 162nd chapter...

This 162nd chapter has made me assign only 4 to this manga (instead of 8 or even 9). I mean, when you write a story, there is the introduction ...
