Story's above mediocre. It's about a popular girl who's envied and attracted by many girls and guys respectively. All the guys who ask her out don't satisfy her high expectations; although their unrequited interest in her satisfies her pride. When she meets the coldest, most handsome, studious, and athletic guy in school, she goes after him to satisfy her pride in her attractiveness. But to no avail, he sees right through her scheme and confronts her directly. Flustered from being made a fool in front of the school by him, she storms off. Her hatred for his apathetic and stern personality develops into a keen interest for him. As the story goes on, she learns more about him and his obscure good traits. Decent developing romance for an 8 chapter story. It would've been nice if there were more developing doki-doki moments. Misunderstandings and light love polygon were handled delicately by the author. Drama wasn't overdone which is nice. I thought that the author did give out some twists and turns that prevented the story from being too predictable. Story wasn't a total page turner till the middle when the plot thickened. Not a story I would rave about, but still enjoyable to read on a free evening.
I found the art work to be gorgeous. The eyes have nice depth in them. Character designs are drawn pleasantly with good body proportion. Hair styles look great as well. The main guy is a handsome, cool, calm, and collected-looking brunette. Expressions are drawn beautifully.
I didn't have any problems with any of the characters overall. The characters' individual strengths and flaws brought the story to life in my opinion. Annoying, hindering characters were there to bring out the good from the main characters. Sometimes the characters' behavior/dialogue was cringe-worthy, but tolerable since I found the flaw to be realistic to the natural awkwardness and imperfections that many people have in real life. Characters' personalities were acceptable, but not stellar enough to leave a lasting impression on me.
A nice, light shoujo to read on a relaxing evening. Elegant artwork with an enjoyable school-life, romance story. Not the best, but still entertaining.
If you're looking for a short, light shoujo romance to read during your free time, you can give this manga a try. Plus, the leading guy's hot :D
This is my first review so let me know if there are any improvements I can work on! read more
