I'll admit the first chapter was an improvement on the oneshot, with the gangsters who don't do anything having their antics actually feeling like over-the-top comedy now, the male lead actually having a hint of personality and being less of a jerk.
The main problem is that I don't see many unique ways this story can diverge.
Currently we are looking at a love triangle (could turn into a straight up harem), with a childhood promise (could turn out to be a marriage promise depending on what's in the locket) to a person who the protagonist doesn't properly remember (what is this, Love Hina
with gangsters?), a perverted male friend, an arranged marriage and of course what is probably a Tsundere. Haven't we covered this all before?
Also, Demongodofchaos if you're reading this regarding the... Stuff we spoke of earlier, yes, it got worse in this version.
