Story:: 7.25/10
----------------
For what seemed like a typical shoujo setup, the story was pretty good for the most part. Instead of being a completely vanilla "girl meets boy and falls in love" type of scenario, there's a bit of a unique spin on the relationship. Female lead falls in love with the boy(male lead) that her older sister was suppose to "meet with marriage intent" (an "omiai"). The sister then falls in love with another character, kicks out our female protagonist from their home which causes her to live with the male protagonist for the duration of the manga. Add in some implications here and there, read more

Story: 6/10
---------------
Short, simple and sweet. I haven't gotten around to reading much manga that involves the main couple already married, so this was a nice change of pace to the slow grind relationships found in other manga. However, it wasn't your typical marriage and we aren't given much opportunities to experience their lovey-dovey relationship. What I disliked, was the pacing of the story. It alternated way too much between present day and the past. I understand and can appreciate panels with flashbacks, but these occurrences went on for pretty much the entire chapter. One chapter would show their marriage and love for each other, next read more

To be clear, I have no touched the anime adaptation at all prior to reading.


Story: 6/10
-----------------
Harem, harem, harem. This is pretty much introduced in the first few panels. Therefore, I expected a majority of the story to center around the character interactions and comedy; specifically male lead + each of his girls. That was pretty much what I got. Each chapter of the manga focuses on one specific girl for the story and they take turns alternating between the 3 heroines. There were 4 chapters designated to Rin, 3 chapters focusing on Kuriko, 3 chapters for Yuuna, 1 chapter on a late addition to the read more

Preliminary
Despite there having only ~46 chapters scanlated, I figured I'd leave a review considering there isn't any. This manga deserves that much at least.


Story: 6.5/10
---------------
This was quite a roller coaster throughout. Initially we're introduced to a possible childhood friend reunion love story. Then of course, a possible love-triangle/minor harem comes into play. A bit later, there are a handful of ecchi scenes accompanied by a handful of sex scenes. Add in some "conflicts" every now and then for a change of pace and that's pretty much what has occurred so far. For the first half of the manga, the story progression is paced pretty well read more

Story: 7.25/10
-----------------
A pretty hilarious take on a boy and "monster-girl" romantic-comedy. The manga is told to us via the male lead serving as the narrator with the story progressing neatly in a continuous format. I must admit, this overall story was done very well and the pacing gets an A for both effort and execution. The comedy was aplenty, the supernatural/fantasy aspects was a nice touch, the romance was very cutesy (the harem wasn't really that strong), and when it came down to it, the drama was implemented rather well. Not sure if this counts a spoiler, but the whole feet licking thing was pretty read more

This review will be done for the two chapters that are available on the interwebs as of right now (chapter 0 and chapter 1).


Story: 7.5/10
------------------
For what it's worth, pretty good setup for a romantic-comedy. Obviously, I have yet to progress further so the majority of the story is unbeknownst to me (likewise for the ending) but I think it's safe to say that it'll progress and work out similarly to the first few chapters. As our narrator (male MC) tells us, because he's a possible candidate to succeed his grandfather's industrial conglomerate- he's been forced to live with a worker from the educational read more

Story [6.25/10]
---------------------
Right off the bat, just by reading and "looking" at the first few color intro pages, you get the cliche ecchi guy+girl kind of feeling. Not long after (literally a few panels), we get introduced to the supernatural aspects of the story. Advance a few more panels and we get to the comedic and romance elements. Although not listed on MAL specifically, the gender-bender genre gets thrown in as well. See the pattern so far? Everything is pretty jammed pack right from the get-go. While the plot was pretty simple the pacing was horrid. I think this manga would have benefited from more chapters; read more

Story: [7.5/10]
*************
This was a rather pleasant surprise considering several factors. 1) I'm not a huge fan of supernatural settings and 2) There's only 15 chapters so I was hesitant in fear of a rushed story. While the supernatural aspects were pretty much evident in each chapter, it wasn't out of control and still flowed rather naturally. In short, a young man (male protagonist) was chosen to become the servant of a goddess/deity (female protagonist) and we're treated to the wild development and scenarios between the mains and side characters. As for the rushed aspect, sadly this manga could not escape that fate. The story went read more

Yet another collection of one-shots, so I'll try to give my thoughts for each respective chapter.

[chapter 1] 7.25/10
I gotta say, this was pretty enjoyable. The combination of a overly aggressive male lead and helpless female lead was a pleasure to read. It had a rather mature feel despite taking place in your typical high school. I respect the mangaka for writing a story that was able to mold a unorthodox relationship into a solid romance.

[chapter 2] 7.25/10
Using something silly like an umbrella for a plot device sounded really silly and far'fetched. However, it did work for this story. Again, we have an aggressive male vying read more

Story
---------
This series is composed of 4 different one-shots, so I'll try to evaluate a little bit of each one.

(chapter 1) 6/10
Classic tale of "don't judge a book by its cover". Something done before in plenty of manga and a subject that I personally feel doesn't run that well in a one-shot. However, the story did build up slowly and surely and was able to eventually reach the romantic peak towards the end.

(chapter 2) 5.75/10
A unique spin of the classic high school romance but not due to the story itself. It was head scratching to the point of near stupidity at times. The mangaka tried to read more
