Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him—with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?

My Thoughts

Adorably sweet and heartwarming!

If sugary sweet shoujos are your thing than don't miss out on this amazing series.

Nao Kogure is a sweet girl who just wants a normal high school life free of delinquents like the frightening Taiga. However, things change when he suddenly asks her to date him. Not wanting to get beaten up by refusing him Nao agrees. She later comes to learn that appearances can be decieving as Taiga reveals his sweet and endearing nature.

The scary delinquent who turns out to be nothing, but a big cuddly bear is probably one of my favorite tropes in shoujo mangas and this one does not dissapoint. While Nao learns pretty fast that Taiga is a kind and caring boy the two slowly learn more about each other in sweet and sometimes hilarious ways. The course of true love never did run smooth, but these two make the journey one you'll never forget!
