Description
Sana Kurata, a child actress, faces many problems in her classroom, including a major one - her bullying classmate, Akito Hayama. Sana's outgoing and friendly nature leads her to work towards correcting all of the problems around her. Her 'meddling' irritates Hayama but at the same time captivates him, just as Hayama's gloomy nature irritates Sana and compels her to change him. As these two opposites attract each other, they face many hardships which bring them closer to a mutual understanding.

This manga won the 1998 Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo.

The End

You know how there are those really annoying endings that just make you so mad or that just don't satisfy you? The ones where you feel like it isn't at all finished or like it wasn't strong enough?
Yeah, well, this wasn't one of them. I love the ending, a bit fast paced but it was good. No loose ends, weak statements. It was exactly what an ending should be: hope for tomorrow and happiness for today.
I may be wrong though. But I absolutely adored this manga. And I am now going to go and recommend it to all my friends, threaten them if I must. Haha.

Even though it's more of comedy i think that it is definitely a good read for romance too it really has a lot of emotion, and when you read the sad part your heart will ache....(the drawing was really nice too except for the begining XD)

Hmm.. I love the depth Obana-sensei went into when she created this manga. At first it was a cute, and ridiculously funny tidbit, but it grew to be much more, that really made me want to glomp onto the series and never let it go.

I am not a kid between 8 - 11 any more (what a pity! bigrazz hahaha, must have lost so much fun back in my childhood :lol: ) but I really enjoyed reading this manga. maybe it doesnt look like but it is pretty serious and deep story in some parts and it has been drawn very well too. however if you don't like Shoujo stuff, you wont enjoy this story that much since the romance factor plays a very important part in it.

You'll like this manga... if you're between the ages of 8 and 11yrs old.
It's not like the manga's bad.... just a little boring and uninteresting...
(^,^) er...or maybe it is kinda bad....iono.

The little heroine's a goody-two-shoe... all smiley and nice and helping people become happy and bright... So yeah... no character depth.

I give this 5/10 because perhaps it would have been an enjoyable read... if I was 6-7 years younger and still wearing rose-colored glasses...
Recommended for kids, not teens

on the whole, awsome.
i think its one of my favs and it left an overall good impression. only things i didnt really like is that some parts were a bit too dramatic (dont remember which parts), the relationship didn't seem that strong - i think thats where i think it was too dramatic - it dragged along for a bit (but still addictive), and lastly there wasnt much change in other characters that the main characters, like Nao...
~ BUT i LOVED IT! it was quite original, IMO. the story plot twist was surprising. and i luv OMG surprises (the interesting + not-too-sad-sort) i wish there was more cuteness or signs of deep connection near the end tho..

I swear this is my favorite manga ever.
I might be a bit biase, seeing as it's one of the first animes that got me to be the addict I am now, it might be the long long wait for me to finish the story (started watching in 4th grade... didn't finish reading manga until 10th grade.), it might be that I was at an age where I could understand the characters really well when I first started reading it, but regardless of that,the plot goes at the perfect rate, the character development is nice, the characters themselves are awesome to begin with, and the storyline is beautiful.
The only thing people can complain about is the art... which isn't even bad in the first place, just not 'gorgeous'.
You experience countless emotions reading this, and it always leaves you wanting more (I read it all together when I got my hands on it.)
A must read!~
