A fabulous foursome of gorgeous guys may live in a magnificent mansion for free, but only if they can turn Sunako, the horror-movie-obsessed, fashion-illiterate niece of the owner, into a proper lady. Oh, and did the aunt mention that Sunako needs to get good grades, too? Sunako must achieve an average above 80 percent, or the deal’s off.

I can't help it. I LOVE this manga.
There's been some fun in this volume, some nonsense fight and blood just as Sunako likes, and some love too. You see, this is one of the things I like most about this manga. The flourishing love between Takano and Sunako is far from conventional. Takano is the one that knows he likes her -,let's face it, he knows!-, while Sunako has not a single clue. In shojos this is usually the opposite. And Takano is the ideal one for Sunako because he challenges her and d...more

Sunako harus mendapat nilai 80 di ujian matematikan. Karena Takenaga adalah yang paling pintar di antar keempat cowok cantik, Takenaga bersedia mengajari. Nyatanya, Sunako lempeng-lempeng aja dan nggak peduli sama ulangannya. Hal ini membuat Kyouhei kesal karena kalau sampai Sunako tidak lulus uang sewa akan kembali seperti semula.

Oke, volume ini tambah lucu. Apalagi, ada gambar Kyouhei yang lagi cupu. Sunako cupu juga sih. Jadinya unyu gitu.



Terus, ternyata Sunako masih kepikiran dengan ciuman...more

Synopsis: A Shōjo comedy/romance manga created by Tomoko Hayakawa. At the beginning of the manga, Sunako Nakahara confesses her love to a boy, who utterly rejects her and tells her she's ugly. As any reasonably young person would do, Sunako then discards all traces of her femininity, and retreats into odd and morbid hobbies, such as collecting skulls.

Fortunately, Sunako's aunt owns a mansion that four gorgeous boys live in (huh?). Apparently, the boys pay rent to live in the ma
This series is just getting better with each volume!!!!! This volume was really fun especially when Sunako discovers, well remembers, that she kissed Kyohei.It's fun to reread it and look how different their relation is in the last volume from this one. And Noi-chan is becoming a more recurrent character!

I still think this is a fun story, and I still like Sunako (chibi Sunako!). But the stories in this volume were kind of senseless... The chapter about studying for the exams was enjoyable... but I do not understand why the guys were dressed up like teachers, or why were they all studying, except their classmates.

Then, the chapter about the photographer. And last, the one about the gansgters... where did they come from? This "Boss"... he suddenly wanted Sunako as his woman, and challenged Tanako....more
Another great volume!
This volume wraps up the hot spring plotline and manages to show the beginning of the boys' acceptance of Sunako. While the artwork that doesn't surround things the author likes tends to suffer, the storyline is always good.

This volume is a great example of what this series has going for it. The characters are interesting, the premise is new, and the series is willing to take a few semi-safe chances with a shoujo comedy.

I'd recommend this in a heartbeat.
Volume 3 has some fun short arcs, including one following up on Sunako's possession from Volume 2, and a photo shoot from hell after a photographer decides to do a themed shoot of Sunako. Nothing terribly exciting, but it passes the time entertainingly.

lol! This series is so funny at first, but I kind of got tired of the same ol' same ol'. The character art is nice, especially the eyes! But there should really be someone concentrating on backgrounds.
I like how it's not the same thing over and over again. Sunako does seem to be growing a little bit. And while growth isn't a neccessity in shoujo manga, it's still nice.

Plus, it's all really funny.
Still as odd as usual, and lots of little subplots, but much better than the second one. I was laughing my head off at Yuki-kun and Ranmaru-kun, as per usual. :)

At first, i think this manga will be boring because I didn't like the drawing style. But, when I read it more and more, there are some funny parts!

Actual storyline? Plot development? OK this series is lacking a little in these areas, but it's still fun to read.
I am still enjoying this managa, a fun, easy read, that is good for filling a little bit of free time.
