I was surprised I liked this so much. I actualy liked this so much that I went and bought it. Well, they were 50 cents each, but whatever. I love Yosuke and Chiaki together. The twin thing I could have done without and it could have been a complete story in just one volume, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this.
Meh. That pretty much sums up my impression of this shojo manga from Izumi Tsubaki. I originally picked it up because the premise sounded absurd (not always a bad thing) and I was salivating for some new manga series to bury my little eyes in. Basically, the heroine of this series is Chiaki Togu - a devout member of the school's massage club. Yes - I said massage. One day she falls in love with a guy, simply because of his fine back and the way it calls to her for a massage (ha ha). Stay with me...more

Enjoyed this new series. This is about a girl who is in the massage club at school. On the bus there is a guy that she always only sees from the back and she wants to give him a massage since he is so stiff. She finally meets him and asks to give him a massage and he says only if she can make him fall in love with her.

This was a cute story of her meeting up with him and just being herself but she is so cute, and smiles and keeps asking to do give him a massage. You will have to read it to see h...more
This is a cute manga. At first I wasn't sure, but decided to give it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. It is by no means a great manga, but it's a good time passer. The mans shoulders did drive me nuts in a few of the panels as they were overly broad and the body was just very disproportionate. I also felt that the romance started just a bit to quick. The book wasn't even half over and he we telling her that he loved her. Overall if your looking for a cute quick read then I would recommend th...more

Good book, sweet characters. Unfortunately, I have to say that the drawing of the boy's shoulders are extremely annoying as they are widely out of proportion to the rest of his body and make his head appear the size of a peanut. However, overall this book is good.

A little confusing, as if the author was told that she only had one book to write and she better sum things up quickly but I think I'll stick around to see what happens. B.O.D.Y had that feeling for me and I ended up really liking it....
This looks like a great series with a unique plot and interesting characters. The bonus chapter "Teach Me, Prince" was also really cute.
