Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Graphics are same old same old shoujo.
So for the plot it does seem fairly interesting but follow a lot of the shoujo cliches. A LOT. If you enjoy when the guy says “I’ll only do what you want me to if you have sex with me :p” then this is the series for you. On top of cliched situations the characters are very cookie cutter with the clumsy but tenacious heroine, the icy boss, and the flippant but lover boy as the POI (person of interest).
Despite my negativity I’ll still read it. It’s summer, and a quick romp through a trashy novel is enough to satisfy in the moment. My only sadness is that it isn’t a josei despite the heroine being past college, which is very rare. Those who love shoujo will love it for sure.
Final Rating: 3/5
