Opinion: Let me start this review by saying I’m disappointed I decided to buy volumes one and two upfront.
Art is very sparkly shoujo. I’ll admit it’s not my favourite even though it isn’t even that popular anymore. The men are drawn really well but the girl looks intense with the number of sparkles in her eyes alone.
So I’ve read two volumes and this series is just a cheesy mess. The girl is so wishy-washy. Her whole thing is she is supposed to be a penny pincher but it doesn’t actually happen that often? The male lead is kind of interesting but he’s very often one-dimensional.
Plotlines have all been done before. I know shoujo tropes are common but I swear I have read this exact series somewhere before storyline by the storyline. Was bored and disappointed. I Will probably not continue to buy unless it goes on super sale.
Final Rating: 2/5
