First, this is a love triangle, almost close as harem, but not as it is. There's a Short review below if you don't want to read the long review.
It started as a cliched romantic comedy with cliched setting, even though it's cliched, it has a decent comedy with almost "breaking the 4th wall" trope.
But the potential of this manga was a cut off after its ending, literally it was axed. There couple of chapter in which it was getting interesting, it was "Deconstruction of Harem(though it was love triangle) and that potential would have made this manga better than any cliched manga. But it's a
shame that it ended abruptly while having the same ending without any resolve relationship.
The are is quite below average, the characters are distinguishable, yet in the closer look, they almost look the same. The expression is just average, the same the background, at least this manga will make you laugh when it comes to its humor. The general art is not really bad, nor decent, it's not even mediocre, it's just OK, well as long as it is readable, I don't have any problem on it.
Characters: 4(states that it is decent)
The characters are the highlight of the show, and they were able to make some characters who are better than any average characters in many series. For it was able to develop its characters, while maintaining its humor, especially their personality, which is quite cliched, but at the same time, funny. Before it ends Saotome Ryou or the rich boy has questioned the Idea of having stagnant, which makes him the Best character in this manga, and he was better than any mcs out there, that's why the score for the character is 4, since there's a decent guy in the series, but at the same time, it ended without a clear relationship, which really sucks.
Enjoyment: 5(not a mediocre in my scoring)
So far, it didn't rely on fanservice, but rather on comedy(one of the best genre every) every characters makes a joke about cliched setting especially when they mention their own part on the scene, which makes me laugh, but at the same time, I wasn't able to enjoy it that much, since this manga was axed, and its potential was killed, not that I can blame the production, since it's trying to deconstruct its Harem, or should I say, it's against the Editors(especially Nisekoi) Well as long that it was able to show its potential, then it's ok for me, and at least ir did try to deconstruct its harem and Saotome Ryou developed as a supporting character, which is missing in many mangas(many supporting characters are just a display for a harem show) so if you think its worth it or not, I would say it's worth it for its Comedy and their MVP Saotome, while not worth for its cliched setting.
Story: 3 - Cliched setting but was able to show its potential on deconstructing its love triangle
Art: 3 - not bad, nor good, almost has the same character design and everything is below average, but was able to express its theme.
Character: 4 - Only Saotome Ryou lifted this the cliched characters
Enjoyment 5 - Enjoyable for its comedy.
Overall: 3 - Wasted Potential and poor production(axed), I don't wanna score it 2 since it's the for cliched setting or just average or 4 since it's for Decent series.
