Sigh... I hate it when books end like that. And was it just me, or were the last two volumes kind of all over the place? It almost felt like I was missing entire chapters of the story.

I was always a Wanichin fan, didn't like Simone much to be honest.

But then, I'm always routing for the guy with the tortured past! Bad habit of mine =D

Eimi was hilarious throughout the story. I like that she didn't immediately fall at Wanichin's feet in a drooling heap. I like that she was pretty much unaffected by

Well that was an.... interesting ride. Can't say the ending was tied up too well, because we never really got to SEE Taka's true feelings for Eimi, is was more told to us using the very very last two pages after that weird short story. I don't know, although there was a definite end and you know where everyone ends up, I wanted to SEE more of a resolution, the characters admitting their feelings to one another/saying goodbye, etc.

Overall, it was a pretty funny, cute series.

the last volume in the series and i have no idea what happened. seriously: this one does not make ANY SENSE AT ALL.
which i guess was the case in vol. 4 too. one she stopped focusing on the dorm-girl hijinks and tried to make it a tortured love story, things went downhill quickly.

I am very sad that this series is over :( Only 5 volumes! What the heck! I knew from the start that Eimi would end up with Wanichin, but throughout the series, I was sorta rooting for both him and Simone? I really liked Simone! Poor guy :'( Wanichin and Eimi are definitely better for each other though... Can I just have Simone then...? Please...

This is a what the crap ending. What the crap, it was like the author was like, "I'm bored drawing and done." anticlimactic

This wasn't an ending this was quitting.

The final volume was just as funny as all the others.My only problem with it was the ending: there was none. It just sort of stopped. There wasn't much of a conclusion. We don't know the final feelings of any of the characters. It was sort of like ending a television series 3/4 of the way through the season.

Maaan I wish there were more of these. But I'm very pleased with how the series ended. Eimi is so adorably wonderful. I love her so much, and there's so much of her weird quirkiness in this volume (plus some tiny peeks at her parents).
Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)
Huh, I kind of like the series. Some of the volumes were good to okay. This one is the finale. Kind of cute at times. Makes you want to know what will happen to the characters at least. Good volume.
3 stars because I'm still in a confusion state with the ending. Reading the extra at the end helped... But I feel like it was all rushed because the book wasnt doing well and said it had to end... If that makes sense
