4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


Yua is dating her high school teacher, and when her grandmother dies, she has nowhere to go, so she marries her teacher, but he has a secret past that will threaten their married bliss.

This manga is just so ridiculously silly that I ended up loving it! I mean, the whole situation of marrying a teacher is already fraught with impossible scenarios, and this manga takes it to a whole new level of hilarious drama. 
I loved the gorgeous art style, and simple school setting. The characters are very dramatic and moody, as they sulk and sneak and whisper secrets. Emotions are flying high on every page, and Yua is in tears in every chapter.

I enjoyed reading it so much, and I can’t wait to grab the next volumes!
