When I first started this series, I thought this series was decent but not quite great. By the third or fourth volume, my mind changed. Although I must admit I was a little (I stress the little part) bit disappointed with part if the ending. Regardless, this has now become a favorite manga series. A Shoujo/Shojo (drama/romance) that really got me into the two main characters. A punk boy with a chip on his shoulder and the girl who works hard to please those around her. As their relationship deepens so does the story itself. The forbidden relationship of step brother/sister. All of it together makes these some great shojo manga.
