Mangaka Mizushiro Setona
Genre(s) drama, romance, shoujo, slice of life

Summary  taken from Baka-Updates
A low-price, high-quality apartment in the metropolitan area of Tokyo is nothing short of a miracle! It exists, but there's a catch -- tenants must be good-looking and pass an interview by the landlord!? This is a love comedy about what happens when the beautiful people are all gathered under one roof!

I only gave the art two and a half stars because I'm not a fan of the style, but the quality isn't bad... it's just a matter of taste, I suppose. Fortunately, I did like the characters, for the most part. The main guy was probably my least favorite character, but both of the secondary characters were interesting. The moral of the story will hit close to home for anyone in their twenties (or older or younger, but it's definitely relevant for twenty-somethings). Since the moral can't be discerned from the summary, I'm wary to give it away, but I will hint that it has to do with delusions of success and working hard.

Also, there were a few parts that made me laugh out loud, which isn't something that happens often when reading. The romance aspect is also better than the average manga, I would say.
