What to say about this manga?

First volume was a real blast.
Second one was OK.
And I couldn’t finish the third one.

While at first the jokes were great, the story soon became “stupid shoujo”, extending what would’ve been a good one-shot title by adding more and more characters as well as primitive love relationships. And the latter are too primitive and have little connection to the main points of interest that were shown in the first volume.
Verdict: If you wanna read it, read only the first volume and a little of the second – and stop there, you won’t get anything more out of it.
P.S. Translation was very wierd. No teenage girls ever would call their best friends “Ayu dear”, as well as “Miss Ayu”. The one who thought it was a good translation for Ayu-sama(and I’m pretty sure that’s what should be there) was totally wrong.
