Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: I will start off by saying that this series is cheesy as hell and has no unique features. With that out of the way, it’s still a super sexy and fun read I couldn’t put down. If you like main guys who bully the heroine mercilessly then this is the stuff for you!
The art is pretty straight forward for josei. It wasn’t bad but it definitely didn’t stand out. This is the mangakas first long series and it kind of shows from time to time with wonky drawings but it still looks great.
So the characters are kind of bland and the plot has a lot of strange holes. Things just randomly don’t add up. To top it off the male hero feels like a hollow wish fulfillment tool that just doesn’t feel real.
All this being said, I really loved reading it. I’m a sucker and I don’t care who knows. I want to be properly objective that it isn’t a masterpiece but if you enjoy mature/sexy josei with a pushy male lead then you will love this!
Final Rating: 3/5
