It's nice for a first chapter. It seems that I'm in the minority, but while it is no Death Note, I'd say that the presentation of Tsugumi Ohba's writing style doesn't run far with the self-monologues and interaction comedy.

However, as much as I want to be optimistic about the manga's overall tone, I can't help but feel the whole twist to the romance 'marriage' angle, and how it's cynically referenced as 'shallow (( puppy )) love' along with the parallels to his failure of an uncle will bring about a more gritted end to this... like Bakuman getting canned after 10 chapters.
