While the plot sounds dull, something about the way it's written is very engaging. I saved this for last this week because it sounded the worst, but it wound up being one of the best (neck & neck with kandachime). I had planned to only read the 2 vols required for the manga club, but had finished all the available chapters almost before I had even realized it.
My one gripe about this series is the artwork. The exaggerated/chibi art used to emphasize certain reactions looks terrible (especially for the main character). To make matters worse, they use the gimmick way too much (especially with the main character). The regular style artwork in this series however is quite good.
This manga was very good for the first 30~35 chapters, but then it hits a major change of pace and loses it's uniqueness. It degrades into just a standard shoujo romance series. While it doesn't become "bad" per se, it becomes boring & mainstream.
