Mei Tachibana at 16 years old the closest she has come to a boy is when she is being bullied. But when she hits the wrong student popular Yamato Kurosawa she didn’t think that from that moment on he would stick by her side and claim her as his friend and possibly something more.

I’ve read the entire series (not too sure if it is on going but yeah). So this review is an overall review of the series as a whole.

This is a cliche manga but at the same time I couldn’t stop reading. Mei is this insecure girl from beginning to the end. She rarely changes and it gets annoying because you would think that she would feel a better about herself. But it doesn’t really happen. She does get out of her shell but that is mostly because she is put in situations.

The romance in this series is really cute though. Mei and Yamato are opposites but they grow together really well. I like how Yamato respects Mei and respects women in general. He owns up to his mistakes, past and present and he is completely devoted to Mei. It was just so cute.

In regards to the artwork, everyone looked alike minus their hair, breast size and other feature you really couldn’t tell until the shirts was off; this is in reference to all characters.

Overall, I though the series was perfect for those who purely love the cliche high school romance.
