Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics are gorgeous. Beautiful details length and everything. Boys and girls (mostly boys) to DIE for. Loses point for lack of originality though. Not unique.
This story has be interested. It’s very lighthearted though so you don’t get too involved. Especially when there is no character arc for anyone. It is very episodic. On the up side, I really like the boys. :) The girl is an idiot… and I hate the perpetuated “you’re not ugly you just have glasses on” thing… but otherwise I love everything else.
Final Rating: 4/5
