    Stay far, far away...

    As a heavy manga reader who favours shoujo/romance to anything else, I can tell you this is hands down the worst manga I've read so far. And believe me, I've read a lot. Character development? Practically nonexistant. Intelligent or varied dialogue? Completely absent. The main character is absolutely idiotic and all men are portrayed as mindless pigs who can't string together 2 sentances. The 'geeky nice guy who wants to get with the female 'heroine'' character is strangely blunt and open with his feelings, yet no reasoning is given for his interest in her. Most manga series of this sort, the female character would ignore him and he would admire her from afar for her qualities such as kindness and generosity. Not in this series: she treats the guy like dirt, yet he is as stupid as she is and worships the ground she walks on. Events are loosely strung together and the story has no real direction. Things just don't make sense sometimes; the heroine goes to a club and meets a guy and suddenly its a week later and she's fired for not showing-up for work. When dumb things like this aren't going on, she's busy feeling sorry for herself and moping around like an idiot. Seriously, I can't stress enough how poor this series really is. I read the first 3 books hoping it would improve later on (I borrowed them, btw. I would never throw away money on garbage like this) but it got even worse. It makes me sick to see the recognition it's recieving when outstanding obscure titles like Here is Greenwood and The Wallflower are being completely overlooked...
