The main characters in this manga is very shy in personality. It can be assumed that the length of the manga will be indeed long because of the personalities of BOTH parties. The senario is a bit over done, but the art is certainly pleasing to the eye. It's clean and neat, but has that overall sense of shoujo in its style. The character development in the story however, is unique. Instead of changing on her own, her friends give her confidence and she makes remarkable progress. The progress made helps keep the story interesting making the overdone senario not so overdone.
