Opinion: It’s cute and fluffy. I almost didn’t continue reading after first volume because I hate pathetic heroines. Luckily I read more on the Viz Manga app and it’s not nearly as bad as I thought.

The art is really cute. I think that’s a plus one to continue to read. Very fluffy and shoujo style without too much detail.

This series I very very slow and honestly the heroine is very boring. But overall it takes all kinds and I kinda slowly started to like this cute first love story. It’s very soft which can be nice when you prefer very rough manga. Sometimes it’s nice to read low drama series.

I know I’m not selling this but I was up very late last night reading it so it must have the je ne sais quois. If you’re a fan of soft and slow romances you will really love this! And if you don’t want to commit lots of money it’s on the Viz Manga app so worth a try!

Final Rating: 4/5
