Ratings & Reviews
This is such a cute manga! It follows Nasa, a very driven young man whose life shifts when he meets Tsukasa and immediately promises to marry her. While at the core we are trying to figure out who Tsukasa is, this is mostly just an adorable slice of life romance at the moment. I would love to see more about who she is, but with the Princess Kaguya references and her very peculiar nature, I find myself kind of loving the mystery as well. Nasa is kind of a precious dork so far, and I love how he has so much of his life together but he's a mess when it comes to her. These sorts of stories are not my norm and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but I've been trying to branch out into new genres and this turned out to be just the fluffy humorous break that my mind needed. I'm really interested in seeing where volume 2 takes Nasa and Tsukasa.
Great start to this story

This is a great start to this story. It has so far avoided the whole contrivances-to-stall-the-relationship trope that usually comes with this genre and has opted instead to move quickly to the marriage part (albeit with the asterisk that the relationship is just forming), which seems like it will work pretty well as a metaphor for the reality that no one really knows what they are getting into in any relationship; this seems like it will be a good device for exploring the characters and the subject of how relationships develop in general. The art in this manga has a simple, clean feel to it, which serves the story really well. Overall, this was a very refreshing entry, and I really look forward to the future volumes (I already have them preordered).
