Honestly this started out as a 10 for me. 29 chapters in I now feel like they are just adding things in to stretch it out. It feels like the end should have already come and it hasn't. The characters started out feeling complex and interesting. Now I find them annoying. The guy seems unable to be serious even when its called for and the girl annoyingly refuses to admit her feelings even when she admits it. She quite literally admits her feelings out loud but then refuses to act on them. They make me want to pull my hair out. The art is nice and suits the manga. The rest of the characters are humourous. But honestly at this point its gone past its expiration date.
In my opinion, I love this manga series. I love how they show the process of how Yuki starts realizing that she is falling in love with Naruse.
I specially like they show their developed. This shouji manga has twisted to thier own way, not like the other shoujo manga use.
This is also a sport manga and has lessons in it, whihc shows the true meaning of sport manga.
( Don't want to spoil it)
The art is beautiful as such on the sport and romance scenes.
I love the comedy, and the romance.
This used to be one of my favorites.
The manga started off great - I thought the female lead wasn't like a lot of the other shoujo heroines, who are usually clumsy or too sensitive. This female lead was interesting. It was something new to me, and I really enjoyed it. Plus, I'm not even that into sports, but I found the basketball matches to be sort of intense and it just made the manga more enjoyable for me. I also liked to see the relationships between the people in the basketball team. I liked how there was certainly a big focus on romance, but we got to see the basketball part too.
However, things were getting old.
I feel like the manga should have ended when Naruse, the male lead, graduated high school. However, the story follows the two to college.
For me, it just feels like it's dragging on for too long, and everything is sort of repeating itself again, especially with the new couple, but with more drama.
I'm still following the series, just not as enthusiastically as before, because I do want to see a good ending.
However, does start off good, so I do recommend it...it just gets a little boring after a while, but that's just my opinion.
This is one heck of a series!!! I honestly don't know whgy I am so hooked up with this manga, it's just that, it is so amazing. The author did a good job twisting that senpai-meets-kouhai story. Awesome. The characters are all developed, givin hints that there are possible love stories on the side making and I am loving it because right now I am rooting for Suwa-senpai and Usami-san's development. I spent only one night to finish reading this damn manga so that I will just have to wait for its updates but all the wait will always be worth it. Anyway, if you're going to read this manga, I am warning you to stay calm while Naruse-kun is giving off his hotness and cuteness throughout the series. Enjoy reading!!! :)
Originally this was an 8 for me, but as the story progressed I couldn't stand the main character. I can usually tolerate "annoying" main characters more than the next person, but Yuki, she really gets on my nerves. She is irrationally jealous, a huge hypocrit, and genuinely never communicate about anything. I despise the second male lead for not moving on by now, hes honestly kinda pathetic. The male lead is okay, he's definitely likable. I think I like him more cause I feel bad he has to put up with Yuki.
