Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
This series is an interesting combination of irritating and cute. The artwork is really lovely, and if you are willing to suspend your disbelief of a 35 year old falling in love with a 15 year old then it’s a rather sweet and cute story. The series is also frustrating in the sense that Chisato (the 35 year old) has such an unpleasant personality in the begining. Despite that it balances out well with the calm and collected Shunsuke who seems to be able to calm the insanity of Chisato. They do kind of explain why Chisato is the way he is, but it’s about as ridiculous as he is. Still, it’s a cute series with unique characters that have their own charm. This is not for everyone since the age difference between the two are quite a gap, but if you can get past that and the craziness of Chisato it’s worth giving a try.
