I know this project is a well-known in the Shoujo world, its just 25 to me. as I don't like Teacher-Student relations, which is what this is, EXCEPT its a Teacher-Student MARRIAGE!
Let me explain.
After losing their parents, Fumino and her brother hop from one relative to another. Getting tired of all those moves, she finally decides to quit school and work to support her brother on her own. As they sat on a park bench, her teacher appears in front of her and agrees to her demands of marrying and supporting both her and her brother!
Strangers, other than the fact that he is her teacher, they are now married! Their married life however takes into consideration both the age-gap and the fact that he is her teacher, ~forbidden relationship!~
Meaning the guy holds back! Oh yes, in fact they don't even kiss, although she tries! You'll be glad to know, although she cries every now and then, our protagonist is the tough somewhat violent type; which goes well with Sensei as he is an ex-delinquent.
The story goes into married/familial life and the trials they face as well as conflicts, and they naturally grow closer.
I enjoy Faster than a Kiss because it isn't your ordinary cliché storyline, and it takes its time to build up both story and relationship, so you get more for your time. The story flows well, the characters are well developed and you most certainly can't complain about the art. Although the summary sounds insane, it really grows on you! It can leave you frustrated at times, but its definitely a great Shoujo Manga worth reading!
Happy reading! Hope you check it out!
NEXT at 24, is a love triangle between the Girl+Student+his brother: the Teacher. Any guesses as to which Shoujo Manga it is??
