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.

Sure, the art was a bit shaky at times. Some scenes were extremely good, but others were just sloppy. There were a couple of times when some of the panels reminded me of Miki Aihara's art (Hot Gimmick, Honey Hunt). Other panels reminded me
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.
Though it certainly isn't my favorite, it wasn't terrible! I would definitely read the second one!
