I had no idea so many of my favorite mangas were from Aya! I should've noticed with the similar art styles. I'm so glad there's a new series, I can't wait to read all of her other publications while I wait~~

I think you are a very good romance author.
Your sense of humor is also great.
I really want to hug you to show you how much I love DameKoi and Lovecom <3

From reading both LovCom and DameKoi I can say her couple interactions are some of the most charming kind to exist on Earth. Her mix of Comedy and Romance is one of the few I don't mind in manga- rather, I think I like it quite a bit.
