Impression: This story is about a money-loving girl who missed out on a chance to skip town with her family and because of that she now has to pay back the debt that her father has racked up to a yakuza guy who took care of the debts for her. She now has to take on various jobs to pay back the guy which often leads to her learning a lesson or two regarding money. This really is an old school manga complete with old school drawings and clichés. While I do say it’s an old school, that doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s actually nice for a light read with the main character being a bit of an idiot who's a glutton for punishment. It's quite refreshing to have girl like that as the lead though that's probably I would be categorized as a sadist who enjoys watching people struggle. I actually would like to read more if it keeps on being scanlated. It'd be great if the scanlators would do a ninja on this and release it in huge batches since this really isn't the kind of manga that people would wait chapter by chapter for.
