Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Graphics have a fairly minimal feeling. Reminds me of a toned down slice of life shounen. I like it, very cute.
Only read two chapters but it seems really light hearted and cute. Glad it’s only three volumes because I can’t see it going for a long run. Great series to read if you want something light and airy.
Final Rating: 3/5

Summary: Naho dreamt to become an OL but while she was waiting to have the aptitude to become one of them, she started to work in a Design company. But because her manager, Sakisaka, had a bad impression about her, he just played with her. But then, he decided to help her and he even comforted her?!
This love story isn’t to be dealt with by ordinary means!
Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics have a classic feel. Really reminded me of “Mars” but even better? Has some great WOW moments. One draw back is sometimes it can be a bit cluttered and hard to figure out what is going on.
This plot is cute. While the main set up is fairly cliche I like it. I even like the dopey tropey Heroine. Although she is kind of a ditz it’s nice to have a heroine with a positive outlook and not have her be a saint. She still makes plenty of mistakes and has extremely relate able hopes and dreams.
The scanlations are still only on the first volume but I feel like it’s really going to ramp up. Already hinting at seep dark secrets of the love interest but I don’t think it will get campy. I hope not.
Really recommend this. It’s still early to say but I’m really digging it!
Final Rating: 4/5
