Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics are my FAVOURITE. I LOVE IT! I remember reading Voices of Love from LuvLuv Press and not liking the stories but LOVING the graphics. GORGEOUS guys AND girls. Fun fashion too! Only complaint might be the extended torsos… but I don’t mind.
Story line is sweet. What I love most about this series is that it doesn’t just concentrate on the main couple, and it doesn’t bother me. I actually want the other characters to succeed and it’s sweet. Also the main character is so fun, I can really relate in some ways and I think it makes the manga that much more awesome.
Some complaints are that they fall in love too quickly… but… they don’t. It’s not love they LIKE each other. I’ve liked a guy faster then her a hundred times. They get to know each others personalities and it works. She doesn’t even admit to liking him till the third volume although her actions say she does.
It is listed as smut but… hardly. It might get worse later on and I’ll change it… but right now the worst is the boob of a side character.
Overall 100% must read at some point in your life.
Final Rating: 5/5
