This manga is so much better than its description will have you believe. Yes, it has a tad bit of shoujo clichés, but there are a lot of elements that are different. It is hilarious in the beginning. Somewhere in the middle the humor starts to fade and the plot drags on. Towards the end, there is some drama, but it's not the kind that makes your eyes roll, it's the kind that makes you look forward to how the story will end.

After a long time, I’m reading a manga where I actually like the main and supporting characters. Granted, the male lead is a blithering idiot, he meddles into other people’s business and acts like a player, but he has a good heart and I dig that. I’m so sick of the “jerk male lead” thing, that it is refreshing to see a nice guy as the lead.

The female lead was a complete contrast. Her no-nonsense attitude was cool. I liked that she comes across as cold, blunt, cynical and emotionless, because that is the opposite of a typical shoujo girl. Though she appears cold, she is sweet and considerate. She just doesn’t wear her heart on her sleeve.

The side characters are adorable as well. They may be stereotypical in the beginning, but their backstories and character development (though not much) make them interesting. The whole "host club" may sound weird, but the story focuses more on the characters and the club activities don't make you frown.

If you are looking for a fun read with some humor and not too much drama, I’d highly recommend this manga. ( )
