Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: This is a really cute story and I love the art, but it isn’t groundbreaking by any means.
The art is kind of unique. I love the way the manga-ka draws guys, specifically the main guy. He’s always shirtless and I love the undercut! ;) The girl is very typical shoujo style.
The plot is very cute and light hearted. It does rely on a lot of tropes and I’m not fond of the heroines laziness but it’s still very cute. It’s also really nice to see a male character that is not only sincere and kind, but also dynamic and passionate.
There is a 10 year age gap between the heroine and the main guy so if you love shoujo manga with age gaps you’ll love this. But it does seem like it will be a slow-ish romance.
Final Rating: 4/5
Extra: If you like this series you will love L-DK and vice versa
