    I am probably going to follow this for the next few chapters and see how it goes. It's a standard rom-com, but the characters were enjoyable.

    Furuhashi - rich girl, cute, polite, emotional
    Ogata - family runs a noodle shop?, logical, tsundere-ish
    ... can't say I have a clear best girl at this stage. Both are appealing enough.

    Just read that first chapter. Wow that was irresistibly cute ahaha.
    The main character sorta reminds me of Katsuragi Keima from The World only God Knows. Plus that girl without the glasses looks like Onodera from Nisekoi.
    I like the fact that the girls want to focus on subjects they obviously aren't good in. Should provide for some juicy backstory later on.
    All in all, a really good first chapter. Plus thank goodness the main character isn't some oblivious tool like Ichika or Raku:epicfacepalm He seems to be at least aware of the fact that he's talking to members of the opposite sex, so that's a plus one:verily
    Really hoping this becomes long running, it would be a good replacement to Nisekoi:verily

    The art... why is it the art that I always notice first? In any case, this mangaka is very refined. I wonder if this is even their first work?

    A fantastic debut chapter that got me attached to the main cast. Those girls are really adorable and I must admit that when he gave them those handmade study books... My heart may have melted a tiny bit :hurr

    I'm enjoying it so far. Close to loving it.

    As WithYouInSpirit said, this is a very well put together story. Simple premise with a lot of potential and good characters to move the plot along.

    Fam I'm loving this so far and I've been looking for more shonens but I can't help it, this series got two girls that are just good and a MC that's a cool geek lol. Both are best girls so it's like pick your flavor instead of pick your poison. Best new series no question so far.

    Translation, more or less:

    A third genius joins the team. It's the ace of the swimming club and behaves like a princess who needs the MC's help as well

    Since ch 2 (not coming out on MS) I've been behind with this manga, just read ch 3 right now. It was funny of course, and touching too. The family fit in quite well.

    WNL did quite well in the WSJ(?) rankings, if I am correct they placed 4th in their first ranking. This is a good sign for the continuation of this manga I assume.

    I guess this will be the next Nisekoi lol.. I won't be surprised if this turn out to be a full blown harem, but I hope it just stays as it is. Well it's already a harem since MC has three girls fighting for his D so far. 4 if you count her bro-con sister, although I hope he just turns out to be like Komachi from Oregairu. I'm settled with just the two main heroine and the middle school friend.

    Just Caught up to ch. 9 which is the latest chapter. I know it's too early, but I'm placing my bet on Furuhashi to win. It's just my gut feeling. But as far as best girl is concerned, I think both are still even. Even the middle school friend is pretty good.

    All characters are likable so far. MC kinda reminds me of Keima with his design and his geekiness. At the very least, he seems much sensible than Raku.

    I'm definitely following this. I'm guessing 100-200 chapters for this series if they're gonna take their whole third year. I'm already considering course lots of fillers and development arcs for each girl. Of course, there could still be some twist down the line of the story. But these are the types of story that is better finished sooner rather than later. Series like Nisekoi or Kimi No Iru Machi had good story but got dull in the long run with so much "filler" arcs.

    Finally caught up with it. The comedy and cuteness keeps this entertaining.

    I like all the girls. Out of the main two, I'd give Ogata the slightest of nods ahead of Furuhashi, though in chapter 6 I gotta say she nearly won me over.

    However I really would like Takemoto to be the one. She's got my support atm. Might make a poll, so people can add place their bet too xD



    If you don't mind me asking, @Doughboy @eefrit @EmptySoul @Emperor Spriggan @WithYouInSpirit how are you guys liking it so far? Still keeping up with it?
