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.

Short Cake Cake is a cute manga you can easily read to pass your time. It starts off decent, with a cute protagonist, and honestly, that was enough for me.

I think it's just a personal thing, but I didn't really like the way the characters developed. I think they just changed too much from the ones I fell in love with at first (including the art, I miss the early design for Ten). However, I kept reading bc I still really loved MC. In the end, I did quite like the reconciliation arc.

Maybe you'll like the story more than I did, so I think it's read more

This was pretty amazing imo..I wasn't expecting so much from it but because it's from the same author as a sign of affection I read it and it was an emotional rollercoaster. It's not just a love story actually it is a journey of forgiveness and acceptance .. I really hate love triangles that is the reason I put the manga on to read for so long but I am glad I read it ..they didn't complicate things actually with the love interests and everyone was happy with what they got ... All the characters are likable and their actions are understandable .. overall it read more

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 read more

I personally enjoyed this heart touching story.At the beginning, i thought it will just be a typical shoujo with ml, fl, second ml, drama etc but that's not what I found.The plot is interesting and I love the character development.Along the line i shed lots of tears but there where also cute moments so i don't regret reading till the end.I particularly loved the second ml.He was such a reliable person.

Since the review i read was not all that positive, I thought i should share my own experience about this manga because I did enjoy it

Will i recommend it? Yes I'll advice anyone to give read more
