*CLEARS THROAT* Okay lemme break it down a bit ...

So our super NERD mc aims for being someone so great in future cus ppl make fun of his name ,then before he could take his highschool entrance exams he spots this super cute mysterious girl (that's all he knows about her lol) so trying to talk to her he gets hit by truck kun he didn't really notice but this mysterious girl took most of the damage for him so  he barely escaped death even as he was almost unconscious he still wanted to tell her his feelings so he decides to chase after her and luckily he found her so he thanks her for saving him and immediately asked her out ( he doesn't even know her name yet lol) she got so surprised so she tries to scare him off and says "IF U MARRY ME I'LL GO OUT WITH U" and to her surprise our super nerd mc immediately replies with "YES WITH PLEASURE" (he was only 16 and she was 14 ) and then he fell unconscious due to loss of blood what I'm trying to say is this YES we know this is so unrealistic and doesn't make a single sense at all that's why most ppl drop it just after the first 2 chaps and tbh I almost did but I decided to try a bit further before I finally decide but rn I'm so hooked to it like believe me it really got so damn interesting from that point on ...don't wanna add much spoilers but yh they got together 2 yearss later and finally got married then u find out she isn't just a normal human

there are 99 chaps as of now tho so a lot haven't been revealed yet still looking forward to it

Going into this, I wasn't expecting to feel as many different emotions as I have. It's a Hata Kenjirou series, so I was thinking it would be a light-hearted comedy along the lines of Hayate the Combat Bulter!, but I was absolutely blindsided by how emotional this gets.

Sure, it's still ultimately a comedy, which is fine with me, as I love Hata's sense of humour. He's extremely self-aware and his jokes never feel too forced or repetitive. He knows exactly what people think of him and I can appreciate that.

With a premise as bonkers as "guy meets girl and thinks she's cute so he asks her to marry him but he almost fucking dies while confessing and ends up in hospital. A few years later they meet again and actually do get married and start living together. Shenanigans ensue", I didn't think it'd get so deep (at least for the kind of series it is lol). It's nothing new, original or groundbreaking, but you really do feel sorry for Tsukasa and everything she's been through. The story arc detailing her past is definitely my favourite so far in the series.

Nasa isn't a one-dimentional airhead, either. He's smart, awkward but caring and is a really good dude. He truly cares deeply about Tsukasa and wants the best for her. That said, he's not perfect, and he has his flaws. He has no idea how to romance, other characters hinting at things and being subtle go completely over his head and he's probably just a bit too trusting.

But that's okay. He's just autistic. That's why he's hopeless socially and is 2smart4u when it comes to IT-related things.

The other characters are fun, too, and none of them overstay their welcome. Out of all of them Kaguya's my personal favourite and I hope the series explores her a bit more soon.

I'm someone who's picky about male/female relationship dynamics in fiction, and I love Tsukasa and Nasa and their interactions with each other. They're both awkward people trying their best and their fights are over petty but realistic (at least as realistic as this situation can get) things.

Currently, the series is on 219 chapters, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes. It's not so much an emotional rollercoaster as it is a story that almost gives you emotional whiplash, but I guess that's just Hata's style at this point.

My only complaint is that I wish there was more plot and less filler chapters but that's just me and I know what I'm getting now. And to be perfectly honest, Hata being able to write entire chapters featuring nobody but the main cast of Hayate doing nothing but breaking the fourth wall about current IRL events and getting away with submitting it to the magazine and having it published is such a power move that I'm not even mad.

One of my favorites! It takes a little suspension of disbelief at first but it's so wholesome! Perfect for those who just want to smile and have a wholesome time!

Well... The start would be kinda awkward. It starts with confessing a girl the MC just met for the first time and marrying her. And the art style isn't the best. Other than that, I have no other things I didn't like. After the first 10 chapters, the problem starts lol. The problem is it's too cute and wholesome. It just makes me want to know more about their relationship. It has more than 100 chapters now and some parts hasn't been revealed yet and I'm looking forward to it. Hope the author doesn't rush this manga and give it time to develop their relationship. 

Lastly, what I wanna say is... You should read this if you are looking for some wholesome manga with cute couple. Totally worth your time 👌

It's a fun read, i wish there was more depth tp the characters. Also, the manga is very slice of life so if thats your thing you'll be totally capitvated; Will leave you with a warm feeling with every update. If youre coming from the CrunchyRoll series they leave stuff out so its best to go back and start reading from the beginning, but if you dont you wont be missing that much with the "Lore" of the story. Its a manga where you can start just about from any chapter without being to lost, but i dont think anyone would recomend that. I think its a good introduction into the slice of life genre.
