Sakurai Sayuki is the odd girl in school. Known for having sharp eyes that always make her look mean, Sakurai has not had a boyfriend ever. Now that she is in high school, things are different and she hopes for love.

*Short Review*

The thing about this manga is it is a very cliche romance. High school girl falls in love with a boy, she doesn’t realize is her home economics teacher (because she sleeps in that class). She goes through this back and forth of if her feelings are valid and if she should pursue the teacher.

Typical. . . completely. This manga was listed as a comedy but there wasn’t much humor to it. Sakurai was annoying and she over reacted to everything (well she is a high school girl in a manga).  The surrounding characters were iffy because you really couldn’t put your finger on what type of people they were. There wasn’t enough personality coming out of them, even though they were pretty dominate within the story.

To be honest, I expected something different because there has been occasions that things were different.  The art work was mediocre because everyone looked alike and it was hard to really tell them apart, especially the men. The story-line moved surprisingly very smooth. There was conflict but it fit within the plot very well.

Overall, it wasn’t a bad story. I know plenty of people that would enjoy it much more than me.
