Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: This mangaka has a thing for playboys and it has been intolerable for me in the past. This series takes a different approach and for once we have a likeable male lead!
The art is very nice and this mangaka has their own unique style that shines through. I like it quite a bit! It’s refreshing to not see the EXACT same style over and over.
The characters are really lovable. Even the annoying male leads best friend. The heroine is a bit of an air head but she’s still doing the best she can. A lot of the plots are played out a bit but I still find myself waiting impatiently for the next volume.
If you enjoy shoujo manga in general this is definitely a great read. If you’re looking for something unique plot wise this won’t scratch that itch.
Final Rating: 4/5
Extra: Same mangaka as Momoiro Heaven
