Gatcha Gacha is your typical shojo story. By typical, I mean predictable, cliche, and just a bit unoriginal. Although, I found that I was in the right mood to read this volume of manga. I bought it on impulse at my local anime convention, and I don't regret it.

Gatcha Gacha is a fun read. I agree that the story line seems to be pretty typical shoujo, nice love triangle/square, but the characters are fun and thus keep the story going.

I wouldn't recommend this to newcomers to manga, but definitely to shojo fans.
