The blonde, wild-looking "bad boy" is quick to show that's he's just sweetheart-in-leather-pants. He doesn't even bark, much less bite -- in fact, he mostly tries to help the awkward, scared little animal who took a liking to him get some confidence in herself (a bit clumsily; he's fifteen). Check out their other work Nagareboshi Lens, which has many more chapters translated, for evidence of a very similar take.

 

Murata Mayu just has a very 14-year-old middle school girl version of a "cool guy" in mind when she's drawing these things for some reason. lol.

 

If it is, indeed, the case that blond boy isn't a D.H., then the mangaka should not have portrayed him as such right off the bat. But that's neither here not there, it's the stupidness of the idiot girl that turned me off. I can usually put up with most MCs in shoujo stories that are jerks (well, ya got to since most are, otherwise there'd be hardly anything to read), but mangakas portraying women as ridiculously, obliviously dumb just gets annoyingly offensive.

The art is cute but it's so boring!!!!! Maybe I'm becoming an old lady but the decisions of the main characters are becoming dumber and dumber.

Same here. I got as far as the idiot girl thinking to herself, in chapter 1, "Miura is cool as well today" despite the fact that he intentionally shook up carbonated soda (like an freaking idiot) and sprayed her with it and then only reluctantly (and insincerely) apologized after he was told to do so. Yeah. Way cool. That's enough to turn me off. Don't need to read another series about an idiot girl falling for a jerk of a guy.

 

I get that you're wary about that kind of rage-inducing BS, and that's fair enough, me too, but as PLG said, this isn't it.

 

The author's touch is 80% sparkles, 20% lip service to traditional shoujo manga drama tropes. The blonde, wild-looking "bad boy" is quick to show that's he's just sweetheart-in-leather-pants. He doesn't even bark, much less bite -- in fact, he mostly tries to help the awkward, scared little animal who took a liking to him get some confidence in herself (a bit clumsily; he's fifteen).

Oh, hey, just realized this is by the same person as Nagareboshi Lens . . . which stuck in my mind for dialling all the sweet and vanilla shoujo things up to 11 and all the conflict down to 2 or so.  I guess that's her style.

This looks like an example of what I like to say about shoujo:  You can use all the cliches and it will work fine if it's got heart.

Yup, tropes aren't bad in and of themselves, it's how they're used.

...That said, I wasn't aware that hanging out with bishounen delinquents could cause spontaneous featherpocalyptic angelification.  Or maybe it's something in that honey-lemon soda...

Awww that last chapter was cute and I liked that play on her nickname he made. It's kind of sweet how the story reminds you that something simple like calling out to someone or saying a few kind words might not seem like much to us but can be what makes someone's day.

I have ebook raws for V.1-2 if you guys want them? Might be better to clean with

Hm? Really? ◊ ^ ◊ Could I try them out!!

You did a great job. Keep it going ^.^ Thanks for the chapter.

I can only clean, not redraw. So some parts probably won't be cleaned that good, but at least you can read it, right?

 

Ahhh... Sorry, hearing something like this just makes it a bit depressing for me, since I tried my best in doing this.

 

It looked fine to me! Thanks for your hard work!

Well, welcome to scanlation world. Just ignore and let those ungrateful brats being not appreciated in their own life too.

I actually really like the art! I mean Some places needs to cleaned better and stuff but I really dig the art though! Oh and Soda-kun is hotttt!

when conflict does happen but the guy doesn't help her

LOL true, it is good for the guy to offer help. I just find it disappointing, though a tad amusing, when a girl who is supposed to have become strong still waits around and cries out the guys name whenever she gets in a tough spot which somehow works like a instasummon and bam he's there to the rescue. Props to the guy and all, but for the girl I'm like "I don't expect you to change into some super ninja but at least tell off people and walk down the stairs properly yourself!" Still not like I don't enjoy a rescue now and then, I'd just like to see the some self-rescues thrown in here and there.

I really like the contrast between the two posts below haha

The thing I'm worried about is if this will go down the cliché route of her becoming "strong" but actually depending on the guy to help and defend her at every conflict.

 

when conflict does happen but the guy doesn't help her

I can see some potential but I think what will determine if I actually end up liking it is if the girl really does grow and change herself. Right now she is very weak and has rock bottom self-esteem, which works fine as a starting point. The thing I'm worried about is if this will go down the cliché route of her becoming "strong" but actually depending on the guy to help and defend her at every conflict. I also get that she will initially admire and look up to the guy but I want to see her eventually define and build her own confidence to the point that she feels his equal rather than her leave him on a permanent pedestal where she spends her time trying to "earn" the right to be at his side.

 

So far it looks like he is the kind of guy who will help her to learn to speak for herself so I am optimistic but we'll see how it plays out.

Though the Art is kinda bad it does look interesting in its own way. Ill give it a Go
