Manga has REALLY changed since the shoujo of my youth. The guys in here are actually pretty nice and so far there is no girl-on-girl jealousy, hate, or bullying. One of the guys saves her from an attempted assault but the person who does it is pretty terrible already, so it's not at all apologistic like some manga I've read that definitely has problematic undertones (like Peach Girl or HYD).
This is short and sweet but it ends up feeling a little bland. Anyone who likes cute feel-good stories with heroines who are nice without coming across as doormats will like this one. It picked me up when I was feeling kind of sad and I'm passing it along to my sister next, who loves manga as much as I do.
Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!
3 out of 5 stars
