Every day, Ten Serizawa boards the 6:00 a.m. bus and travels two long hours to get to school. She is perfectly content with her decision to commute from home, even though there is a boarding house just seven minutes away from her school. However, it also means that Ten can never spend enough time with her friends after school.

Ten does not mind missing out on all the fun until one day, her friend Ageha Haruna brings her to the boarding house that she has been living at. What Ten does not expect is the fluttery excitement that comes with sharing a space with one's schoolmates. As the day progresses, her resolve wavers and she finds herself second-guessing her living arrangements.

Just when she is struggling with her dilemma, a couple of strange encounters with the solemn Chiaki Kasedera and the casual Riku Mikuhara ultimately lead Ten to a realization—she cannot wait to try living in the boarding house.

tldr - This manga is good but there is actually no plot. Like I feel so disconnected from the characters and the story.


Anyways, it's really cute and the art is good (it's like the default romance one); character designs are strange at times but the main 2 are really good-looking imo. Everyone else varies or concerns me (ex: Ageha???).

Random: Shortcake Cake has SUCH a good epilogue? I'm assuming they're not allowed to do anything even sort of explicit but the epilogue is super satisfying. It's not perfect; it suffers from the same storytelling faults that the entire manga does. However, it's fluffy and ...

I hate to say it, but this was a great romance manga. I personally don't enjoy reading romance manga, but the story had me hooked, the art was flawless, the character development was to die for.

I'm so happy I got to read this series and I even took some dating tips away from it. Try to be more like Riku!

The love that unfolded, the little side characters that appeared, every tiny detail the writers and artists placed in these 12 novels made me fall even deeper in love with the story.

The side stories were amazing, the little fillers and the development of even the ...

Preliminary (18/67 eps)
ok, the problem with this book is that there are no characters. Like, they have next to no personality whats so ever. Like, oh hes a flirt, shes 'not like other girls', the other guy reads... and? thats not enough. Theres no supporting cast either. People like each other but there really isn't any reason, they just do because Plot. And there is not real conflict. Now, shojo manga tends to have weak conflict but this has None. The end of book 4 has finished the story, not to spoil anything.
Now positives, the art is ok, like the designs are nice if not a ...
