"The pint-sized Hagu, on the other hand, is outright creepy—among the most disturbing characters to appear in a shoujo manga in recent memory, in fact. She looks like a wan, pale child, and she hardly ever speaks in articulate sentences. The first two things she ever says are “Here” (serving tea in chapter one) and “Nooooo I hate you, go away” (fleeing Morita's attentions in chapter two). She is the least threatening love object imaginable, and naturally two of the men are romantically obsessed with her. Hagu is, in short, every gross stereotype of the ideal Japanese woman—silent, subservient, and small—come to life, the logical conclusion of Japan's incomplete modernization that the moé and lolicon genres make repulsively manifest. One expects this sort of misogyny from a male mangaka. But it is especially deplorable when it issues from the pen of a woman."
