Nao, a cheerful junior high school student, has rented an apartment in the city where she plans to live by herself. However, her plans are promptly ruined when she goes to move in and finds out that her apartment was also rented to Hisashi, a popular yet sometimes distant boy from her school. Things go from bad to worse when Nao and Hisashi discover that they were swindled by their real estate agency; not only is the agency suddenly out of business, but their rent is also 70,000 yen more than what they were originally promised. With no money and nowhere else to live, Nao and Hisashi move in together. Will these two strangers be able to live together or will their conflicting personalities make it impossible?
Overall this manga is just okayy, not great, not bad. The artstyle is nothing special, by todays standards it would be awful but it is a manga which is 24 years old at this point so i wont fault it there too much. However, i wish the artist put in a bit more effort in making sure that not all characters look alike and that there is atleast one aspect which seperates from other characters. Because, i had a lot of trouble in the first 10 or so chapters to recognize which characters were interacting with each other. Furthermore, the other aspects of the manga do not really make up for the less then amazing artstyle for me. The story is generic in regards to the topics discussed and the problems encountered by the main characters. This wouldnt be a problem for me normally, as this is often the case for shoujo/romanca mangas and the predictability is part of the guilty pleasure but this story didnt even have likeable characters. The male lead appears grumpy and irritable and we do not really learn much more about him apart from these two characteristics. The female lead is naive, oblivious and quite frankly unintentionally rude or annoying most of the time. After 22 chapters its also a complete mystery to me what makes them attracted to eachother. This combination of a meh artstyle, a boring plot, annoying one dimensional characters and an empty love story makes for a below average reading experience.
