All Miki Koishikawa wanted was an ordinary family and that's exactly what she had until her parents decided to move in with another couple (as in switching spouses!) and turned Miki's world upside down. Now she lives in a house with four parents and her totally cute stepbrother, Yuu. It's bad enough being brought into her parents' strange soap opera, but Miki will star in ...more

Meine Rezension umfasst die Bände 1-3. Also Aufpassen wegen möglichen Spoilern :) !

Band 1:

Partnertausch auf Japanisch
Miki ist entsetzt, ihre Eltern eröffnen ihr, dass sie vorhaben, sich zu trennen und mit einem anderen Ehepaar die Partner zu tauschen! Zudem wollen sie auch noch alle zusammen unter einem Dach wohnen?! Miki ist fest entschlossen, Widerstand zu leisten, bis sie Yuu, ihren neuen Stiefbruder kennen lernt... Vielleicht ist diese etwas aus dem Rahmen fallende Familiens

Soo...apparently Me of a Decade Ago really enjoyed annoying shoujos...which I don't remember that being the case...then again YA not being the juggernaut it is now, I didn't find a lot of these tropes as annoying since I only read the occasional "real" shoujo (I'll contend something like MARS leans more heavily in the josei category after the first couple of volumes since by that point Rei and Kira are trying to build a life and aren't interested in the petty games of HS relationships, but that' ...more

4.5 stars (rounded up to a five). Some parts in this manga are quite predictable, at least for me, since I've read so much romance novels and manga before. However, it works really well in this manga, and the art, like in the first volume, is quite marvelous, too! I think I'm starting to have a crush on Ginta, but that's another topic. Plus, the characters are being developed beautifully, and the few predictable moments that I already mentioned are occasionally given some small twists to make it ...more

Things get interesting when Yuu has to partner with Ginta when Ginta's tennis partner gets a broken ankle. Since the two boys don't get along usually because of was interesting to see how team cameraderie cancels out trivial matters. Yuu and Ginta beat their opponent's and don't end up having to shave their heads. I am actually quite glad the author put that little bit in the back about how to understand Tennis. It helped clear up a lot of things from me since I was never good enough t ...more

I love this manga it's so cute. I've seen the show, but I wanna see how the manga is and so far it's the same as the show. Mikki does annoy me though 'cause she can be very dramatic and emotional. I thought guys got annoyed with that sort of thing. Ginta is too aggressive and needs to take it easy I'm not surprised Mikki wasn't scared off by him yet. Yuu is so funny and such a laid back character. He's my favorite. One of my favorite manga's.

An enjoyable volume, focusing on a school and personal rival tennis match. I'm not massively interested in tennis, so this wasn't too interesting, but the gentle character development is good, and Meiko's secret is discovered! Her secret kind of makes me uncomfortable due to ages and roles of responsibility, but it should be interesting to see how this develops.

Useful guide to tennis at the back, for those of us who are completely disinterested in tennis!

This volume was focused on the romance and on a tennis match. The problem is I don't really like the romance and I don't know a single thing about tennis so I didn't understand most of that part.
This was still an enjoyable and quick read. I will continue on with the series because I want to know where this is going.

If I wanted hot tennis action, I'd be reading Prince of Tennis. And what is up with the girls not playing exhibition games and running an oden stand instead?

Arimi is a manipulative little thing, and Ginta is still stupid.

And I was kind of surprised to find out that Yoshizumi Wataru is friends with Yazawa Ai (Nana, Paradise Kiss). Their styles are so different...

This series was fun and flirty and so full of drama I loved it. The characters were amazing and I felt that I could relate to a lot of the issue that were going on concerning romantic relationships. I loved how it ended up turning out and I was on the edge of my seat reading. This I absolutely could not put down!

it makes me wish that i could play tennis, or at least understand it better. as miki and yuu's relationship grow, ginta feels threaten that he is on the brink of loosing miki forever. but can her heart still be swayed to love him again?

the character development in this book is spectacular. it really helps move the plot along swimmingly.

Another great chapter in the Marmalade series! The drama goes deeper, but I wish there was more about the ridiculous parents!

And the ending is fabulous! Excellent, yet sexy and dramatic cliffhanger!

It was funny and lovely! Even tho I'm not much of a tennis lover I enjoyed it. And I found the ending part with the explanation of all things tennis was very cute and helpful!
Can't wait to read the next volume!

Aaaaand the soap opera continues with a heated tennis match, plus antics between Arimi and Ginta. And poor Miki gets her emotions jerked all over by her insane (but well-meaning) parents.

Did I mention I love this story?

This manga has a pretty out-there premise, but managed to pull it off. Parts of it are very emotional and I think the story is crafted well.
