This is a gem.
The feeling of warmth and calmness was in every page of this.
THIS is the feeling because of which i like anime and manga so much, it's rare ,but only they have it.
It's such a simple manga , but not a panel felt boring or unimpactful.
A true masterpiece.
I'm glad i stumbled upon this great world of manga.

Super wholesome, 10/10.

The drawing is actually not that good but it made me cry because of the wholesomeness, so who cares.

This was really great, but surprisingly they never addressed Inohara's family?! I wonder why it was left out.

Wholesome manga, this what I need I mean what this community needed, why this kind of manga is rare to be exist?

I really enjoyed every chapter, learn many things and like the other characters on this manga, I also fall for Machida-kun

I hope they make some special chapter about Machida's marriage

Honestly, I was disappointed since it ended a bit too abruptly for my taste. But I still rated this 9/10, because Machida is probably the first male character that touched my heart (among many shoujo mangas I've read).

Really heartwarming! Just a really nice story about caring for others and a boy slowly falling in love. Despite the drama tag, there isn't any drawn-out misunderstandings or an antagonist. I like how short it was, stopped it from becoming boring. I do wish there was a short spin-off or more side chapters for Machida's friends.

This manga started off really strong for me, a full 10/10, but around the middle chapters (while still wholesome) it became a little too shounen-ish for my liking. Machida started to talk in ways that felt overly sweet and eloquent, falling into that shounen-style of writing. He went from letting actions speak louder than words, to speaking a whole bunch of words.

I think one of the things that threw me off in the later chapters was how Machida's self-deprecation just randomly disappeared for like 10 chapters, only to be reintroduced in the final volume. It was part of what made him highly relatable and likeable, and I do not think it was properly addressed for a large chunk of the middle of the manga.

(as someone mentioned below, I also wish that the story focused more on developing the relationship between the male and female MCs. Pacing wise I probably would have preferred a reduction in introducing new characters,and instead more focus on developing characters we have already met. But I guess that's the whole theme, "Machida's World" after all. The final chapter where a lot of character's pop back in for a single frame just tickled my itch to see more character development, and reminded me of what could have been.)

Regardless, I feel like Machida and Inohara were characterized so well in the beginning that it was easy to commit to reading this manga to the end. I left it with a final 9/10. Still a very, very strong manga.

P.S.: Also the hand fetish was kind of weird haha.
