So far it is a cute, funny story. The main character is a artsy nerd who's scared of his own shadow. A cute underclassman takes an interest in him, and displays it by harassing him constantly. It has been interesting to what their relationship progress.

It's not at all an exaggeration when I say that the eyes are what first sparked my interest in this manga and are predominantly what maintains my interest as the series continues. I've read my fair share of manga, but I can't think of any other with eyes this expressive and beautiful. As Nagatoro tease-flirts with the unnamed senpai and enjoys herself, her irises fluidly change size and color and grow Ringlets of Mischief. Which contrasts with her almost lifeless stare when she engages with other boys. And then there's her Almond Eyes of Don't-Touch-My-Man, which perfectly evoke possessive jealousy. As for the senpai, his eyes wiggle and squirm behind his glasses as he tries to avoid confrontation.

It's really cute seeing Nagatoro demean and mock her senpai, but at the same time wanting him to be the best that he can be (as evidenced by her pushing him to get into shape physically and encouraging him to ask for what he wants). She often teases him by repeating what he says, finding perverted subtext behind his actions and words, and calling him gross. And she playfully beats him with her noodly appendages. Sometimes, things will go further than she expected and she ends up embarrassed and blushing. We also see her getting swept along by her friends, who enjoy mocking the senpai purely for mockery's sake, and upping her insulting game when she's around them. But then again, she'll also defend him when she thinks her friends go too far and acts possessive of him when they try to bully him (since bullying is flirting for her).

So basically I began reading this manga because I heard it from anitubers (The Anime Man) talk about it and there's an anime adaption in the works. I read the 63 chapters (not gonna lie, it is an addictive read) and honestly I think reading 63 chapters were enough for me to say, this ain't for me chief....

All you're getting is a teen girl who constantly downgrades, mocks and pretty much harrasses a guy older than her just because he doesn't stand up for himself. You don't realise how many times I've tried to drop this manga altogether but yeah I just feel it's just so controlling and very aggressive. That's not a good thing to start a relationship full stop....

The only good thing about this manga is that it's art is pretty nice but the rest, I might as well want to forget about it.....
