I used to love this manga a lot. It's a really short story, spanning just 2 volumes and an extra chapter in volume 3 (volume 3 also comes with 2 short stories). Rie Takada's drawing style for guys is gorgeous, her girls have spunk, and the story is fun. This used to be more than enough for me. Upon re-reading it now, however, I felt the characters lacked depth and development.. not really a surprise, as the story is so short, but it still covers quite a few themes, so I was a little let-down in ...more
Originally I'd been browsing my local used book store and saw it. The ONLY reason I'd even gotten it was solely based on the cover art. I thought, based on the cover, that it would be from that hot guy's POV. I didn't look inside to even see what it was about; it was an impulse buy.

Am I glad I was impulsive, because this book has instantly become one of my favorites. It isn't from that hot guy's POV(Kazuki I found is his name). It's from Elle's, granddaughter of pro-Thai-something-or-another-mar

After mainlining a crap-ton of Kristen Ashley's backlist, I decided to re-read this series as it's somewhat similar in tone. I have a weakness for bad boy Alpha males and I love Takada's art style, but the storyline reflects Takada's serial roots. It was choppy with minimal character development. We find out why certain characters do certain things, but we don't discover how they feel about them. Ruo, the antagonist, starts off as the most emotionally transparent character, but he too becomes an ...more

Meh. Picked three volumes of this series up at the library without looking too closely at the blurb. Middling manga with bossy rapey bishounen and cheerful naive girl who is obsessed with having a boyfriend and a normal life. Would have preferred the series I thought it might be about a girl who is a BOXING CHAMPION! Will probably not read the next couple of volumes -- gonna go catch up on Gokusen instead.
see ive already read the entire series and its cute but i dont like the ending cuz i dont know who wins which annoys the crap out of me but its cute, and funny i luv funny books or depressing books so its either comedy or tragedy, preferably tragedy though this isnt one
Read up to volume 2. The chibis remind me of Butterflies Flowers but the story itself isn't astounding, nor are the characters that interesting. The protagonist was a tad irritating and I wished that she wasn't in the "coaching" position.

I love Rie Takada's mangas and this series looks really fun with an interesting plot and great characters. I am really looking forward to the next volume.
A little insta-lovey but this type of book tends to be. Toward the there's quite a... turn... so watch out for that. Overall, very enjoyable.
