Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Great graphics. My favourite part about this series is the fashion. EVERYTHING is so FABULOUS! I want ALL the clothes in the series. Honestly. It’s kinda smutty but I put it as teen because I think it isn’t THAT bad, and its kinda what younger teens are going through?
Plot is pretty good. Lots of potential. Doesn’t help that the main character has some kind of mental defect. She is honestly the most stereotypical shoujo character ever… well… potentially the most stereotypically. She is very whiny and self conscious. She throws herself (topless) at the guy and he tells her he doesn’t want to do it in that kind of situation and what does she do? “OMG HE MUST HAAATTTEEE ME 4 REALLSSSSS!” Stupid.
Read this for the fashion and the graphics but otherwise, nah.
Final Rating: 3/5
