Haven't finished it (chapter 38), but it needs some help.

Main criticisms:

Not the best character development or presence (both main characters avoid communicating actual thoughts and desires in favor of hints and violating each other). Each character stalls in terms of growth due to communication issues, and denial or failure to communicate feelings or intentions, as well as a lack of action or plot. The main characters tend to make a lot of assumptions that fail them in their ability to be more fulfilled people, but at least it doesn't get in the way of each of them working, so, yay? Even if their sexual activities and secrets should set up a plot, you get unfulfilled side characters and main characters with their own emotional complexes that are not explored.

Which leads to plot issues: there is not a plot. It is a slice of life, and ideally, that has some sort of continuity. This series has continuity, but the mixture of stilted/jagged pacing and ill-defined events serving as development without exploration or significant to the characters... it has me wanting more of an intention behind the characters or the events, a focus or development from the author... It has the makings of a pornographic romantic comedy, but it's confusing porn with romance and traded comedy for blushing aesthetics.

Which I guess is okay, if you wanted something to fap to and accidentally found what seemed like a webcomic. You won't stumble over the missing storyline.

Oh, and before I forget!

There is rape, as defined as nonconsensual sex or sexual activity, and inconsistent trigger warnings of chapters containing it.

Redeeming qualities:

The art is pretty. The sex is fappable.

If you wanted to see mainly sex, and probably forego any details of a plot, characters, or purpose, this is for you.

Everyone else that expected it to still be a comic? You should stick to Alfie.
