Soooo incredibly cute. Family shenanigans and sweet romance with lots of fluff, a perfect easy read! Don't go in expecting a complex plot or deep character study - the story is a simple romance, but it's perfect for what it is.

All the characters are lovable (especially Ayu!) and the author is very kind to them. No unnecessary angst or drama, but enough minor conflict for the characters to deal with to keep it interesting and progressing. Plus some humor thrown in for good measure. Happy ending was very honest and heartfelt, and felt well deserved.

Definitely check it out - it's a great pick me read more

I can't say everything I want about this manga or this will be seven pages long. Short version: read it, it's good.

If the art isn't your style, I'd suggest watching the anime then starting off where the anime ends (approx chapter 65) cuz the art improves DRASTICALLY as the manga continues.

The characters are all so lovable, the story is interesting, and the central love story is one of the best I've read. The whole world is so comforting, I was so sad to leave the story behind, but the ending was so good so I can't complain.

Read it, it's mostly sweet romance mixed with funny read more

From a narrative perspective: the story is simple and sincere, the characters are relatable and play well off each other, it's a slow paced character-study so don't go in expecting a ton of action (though there is some.) Also the art is pretty and really suits the characters/tone.

This is one of the few shounen ai stories I've read that actually explored what it was like to just be gay. There's a lot about relationships between guys, and some of them do seriously tackle the reality of being gay, but rarely have I ever identified with a character and their world as in this.

It's realistic read more

This is a real gem. The story is simple: two boys become friends as one introduces the other to the world of BL manga. However, every interaction feels so honest and real, and so much care is taken to develop the characters and their relationships to one another. The supporting cast really add a liveliness to the world, while the main characters are so relatable and compelling. Plus a lot of genuine humor.

You rarely get a manga about two guys longer than six chapters (unless it's all subtext and lasts 100+ chapters), and that's where this story really stands out. At eighteen chapters (so far), read more

While it might not be groundbreaking story telling, it's a good read and the characters are very like-able. The best part of it, for me, was the fact that the main couple actually get together and the story continues to show them behaving as a couple. And (so far) it isn't overbearing with melodrama like some relationship-based stories; the character interactions are sincere and it's easy to root for them.

The communication between the two leads is another strong point of the manga, it doesn't beat you over the head with plot lines based on misunderstandings that could be cleared up with a simple five read more

This story is seriously so sweet. It's short, the art is decent, the story isn't anything out of this world, but the characters are like-able and the romance is heartwarming.

I'd say the biggest strengths for this manga are, firstly, its main character, who is very like-able as a character and in his interactions with his love interest and his friend. His thoughts and actions are incredibly enduring, and the genuine and kind way he acts with the other characters is honestly refreshing.

The second strength would be the romance. It's nothing world changing, but it's sincere and incredibly sweet. I was also really satisfied with read more

I really enjoyed this manga. I'll admit I did "skim" here and there when the plot got too dense for me, but I still enjoyed the ride. There are a lot of things you'd expect to be present in a reverse harem style manga which are indeed present here, but the deviations were what stood out to me.

Firstly, don't right off the main pairing as a simple "bickering couple." There's a little of it, but for most of the story they treat each other as (somewhat argumentative) friends, and their relationship grows. I found myself honestly rooting for them and enjoying their interactions with read more

The story is fairly simple - "delinquent" boy takes a liking to straight-laced boy, hijinks ensue. The simplistic storyline fit well with the short length however, and the characters were fun to read about.

What really got me hooked tho was the art. This manga is BEAUTIFUL, the character designs (especially of the two delinquent main character and his gorgeous older brother, who gets an extra chapter about him) are so gorgeous and captivating. I'd recommend this based on the art alone. A fun, quick read, with a few good jokes and really impressive artwork. Really hope to read more from this author.

Honestly the best magical girl show I've ever seen. The characters are all so lovely, the magic system is interesting, and the show has a good mix of episodic storylines and character growth. The story doesn't drag, despite the length of the show, but it lets you spend a lot of time with the characters and their world. So much care is put into the show, it really stands out compared to a lot of other magical girl shows. If you're interested in trying it, watch the Japanese version, as the English version cut out a lot of the best parts of the anime.

Sweet, read more

Don't base your impression of the manga on the first chapter; the story changes drastically after that - in a good way.

The relationship between the two main characters is engaging and fun, and the use of fantasy in the story is very refreshing. I love the very frank writing the author uses in a lot of their works, and I think it really comes out in the demons' dialogue (in this story and the sequel.) Funny and thoroughly entertaining, I'd especially recommend if you're a fan of the author's other works.

A very enjoyable read, don't let the first chapter put you off.
