The Magic Touch, Volume 1 by Izumi Tsubaki

R to L (Japanese Style)

The star of her high school's Massage Research Society club, Chiaki Togu is otherwise a normal, quiet girl until she falls in love at first sight with a gorgeous back—a back that happens to belong to Yosuke, the hottest guy at her school! Unfortunately, Chiaki's attraction to Yosuke is thwarted by her own insecurity and the scheming of other girls—especially her twin sister Saya!

Although Yosuke seems out of Chiaki's league, she would do anything to give him a massage. The two eventually strike up a deal in which she will be allowed to touch his back if she can make him fall in love with her. What Chiaki doesn't know is the real reason Yosuke wants to hang around her: to avenge his younger brother, who was allegedly deceived and dumped by somebody named Chiaki Togu!

Story sounds kind of cute. Good start. Already want to read the next volume at least.

Some of the artwork bothers me but that's only because of preference. Very cute and basic high school love story.

This looks like a great series with a unique plot and interesting characters. The bonus chapter "Teach Me, Prince" was also really cute.

It's a great read. It's very cute and funny, and it makes you crave more. I can't wait for the next volume.

This is not very dramatic or adventurous but is extremely sweet with lots of comedy and it's fair share of swoon-worthy moments.

I didn't care for this manga. The premise is fairly interesting but the characters just didn't move me at all. I'm not interested in buying the second volume either. Spend your manga money elsewhere. Like Captive Hearts, Shinobi Life or Her Majesty's Dog. Those are all much better.
