Not bad. While I generally like this series, I'm not sure if I will continue with it or not. On the one hand, the characters are fun, the artwork and storytelling are fairly well-handled -- Fumizuki has a knack for drawing lovely young women. On the other hand, the story is clichéd. This series fits squarely into the harem genre -- a handful of beautiful women all throwing themselves at a quiet and shy young man. There are dozens of examples in anime and manga, Tenchi Muyo and Love Hina being so ...more

Where the first volume was an adorable love story, the second volume remains such. However, the volume also introduces the classic Japanese "unwanted harem" trope, which I found completely obnoxious and overdone. Fumizuki did an incredible job working around this, and making the love story come out on top, but the trope takes it into relatively formulaic, episodic chapters. I'd give it three and a half stars due to the detractions.

Second in very sweet series about lost and re-found love. Two lovers who may not be able to be together with a wacky host of characters. Very enjoyable. Great for people (like me) who are new to manga.

Haha!! Tina, the American girl, cracks me up! She's hysterical!

I enjoy the Photography Club - seems like they know how to have a good time.

And I nearly died laughing on page 87! Oh man!
