Review: My friend had been telling me to read this since forever, but I didn't really know if I would like it since I've only read a couple other Manga. Trust me when I say that this story is REALLY cute!! I absolutely love Tamako's strong but girlish character as well as Kanji's calm disposition. Its a classic case of crazy parents when it comes to Kanji's dad and Tamako's mom which makes all the better! The cover is also really pretty and I love her tiny pet! The only thing weird about it was that Kanji seemed too calm for a guy whose being confessed to by a girl he doesn't even really know. Anyway, its really a great book!
