This was fun on a lot of levels. The girls are quirky, but in no way manic pixie dream girls. Even Tsukimi, who runs the closest to that stereotype, is there for her own life and not to educate the boys about what life is. It's also fun in that Futurama/Friends/group of people in a big city fighting for their dreams way. Plus there's cross-dressing. It's all good. ( )

Goofy but cute. Seems like a throwback to a silly sitcom like Three's Company, full of exaggerated and unbelievable characters doing crazy things for the sake of a laugh. And it works. I think the strong central love triangle helps balance the antics with real emotional weight. ( )

This is so cute! I've got the next book in the series all ready to go! ( )

Previously, I'd read a couple chapters of this online and thought I'd like it. Quickly striking off the linear path of a romance, the plot-twists more closely resemble 'real' life with aggressive business people buying up lots, children falling out with their parents, and the geeks needing a lot of coaxing to come out of their shelves.

Despite the typical manga shenanigans, I really am enjoying it. The art is beautiful and the main characters are sympathetic if bizarre. ( )
