Aria Sakurai has forsaken love. She’s confessed to over one hundred boys in her short life and been rejected each time. Such an accomplishment has earned her the ironic nickname of the Love Master. People go to her on advice on what not to do. To get away from the moniker she transfers to a new school but ends up being the center of attention when she’s chosen as her class’s president on her first day. To make matters worse, her reputation has followed her AND she thinks she might be falling in love despite her vow to abstain.
Cute story that could have used one more volume. It’s obvious from the jump who Aria will end up with at the end of the story but there was a rival to that love interest mid-story. I would have liked to have seen more about that.
The school dynamic is interesting and the characters are well-rounded. It’s a little predictable but a great way to pass the time.
