Takagi Shigeyoshi imo is better with oneshots, at least from the ones I've read

She creates quirky and fun characters, but usually it's only the shell of the entire pod that gets developed.

Also I agree with another comment that there's an issue with the flow and pacing of the story.

She takes her time in the first few chapters, but then speeds through a lot of stuff toward the end.

I feel the romance always come off as big sweeping moments, but never taking the time to let the romance simmer and just let nature take its course.

Too many random kisses with no emotional connection to fully make these kisses and so called extravagant squee moments make any emotional impact on the readers.

All we're left with is 'let's insert a random kiss here' or 'lets add a flirty comment' which is OK, but not taking itself seriously at some point in the story becomes too much of a caricature

OR, she'd have her MC cry like every moment when she's supposed to be cool and composed, and you wonder if she's a completely different character. Then the mangaka remembers the MC is supposed to be strong and cool and add a kick ass scene in the end and finish.

I suppose her mangas aren't the slice of life slow paced manga as it is only 9 chapters but, interpreting a scene and how it's drawn can impact an entire story.

Her oneshots are a lot better and I suppose I give a lot of leeway since it's only a one shot so I may not be as harsh on it.

Still, her stories aren't terrible, but you'd quickly realises her short stories have good starts but completely collapses in the middle and feebly finishes toward the finish line.

That first oneshot was so sad. He should definitely give that four-eyes a punch!

The main story was alright, but those shorts at the end of each volume were both awesome. Way better than the main story or most other shoujo stuff I've read (and I've read a LOT).
This story is a fun read. The two extra stories are like entertaining commercial breaks.
So sweet :) The characters are just so interesting!
good story but the side story make a greater impression on me (love all teach/stud relation ^^)
This is loads of fun. It's one of the few manga where although the male lead is a super-rich pushy masterful sod, the female lead not only is just as cool in her own way, she actually gets more so as it goes along rather than turning into a wimp as she admits her feelings. She kicks tail! But the emotional part is pretty good too.
i normally don't like extra pages about other characters but honestly i was really amazed by them O_o

This manga as a whole was a pretty awesome experience and one i'll remember for awhile
I really like this story!^^
Hmm, the story is interesting, but there are definitely places where it is evident it's an early work of this mangaka. There are issues with the flow of the story on certain pages, as well as the confusion of action scenes, but it still retains the quirky and unique characters that I've come to associate with Takagi-sensei. A good short read.
Super cute story. c:
