Description
Tsubaki is a girl who loves making her younger sister's hair pretty every morning, but she doesn't think that kind of style suits herself! The day of her High School Beginning Ceremony, after she failed in being the top student (who usually makes the ceremony speech), she finds herself sitting next to the actual top student of the first years, the worst rude guy ever, Kyouta. She ends up cutting his hair on purpose because of the bad things he says to her. Kyouta demands that Tsubaki pay him back with her body, but Tsubaki fixes his hair instead--making it even shorter! After that, Kyouta unexpectedly kisses Tsubaki and swears that he'll make her his woman.

I actually LIKE this series.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I'm a huge smut fan (go ahead, sue me), but the thing is, I only read smut because it's a guilty pleasure. The characters and storyline? Don't care. But Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu is a series that has conquered me completely in a way more than just reading it for the smut as originally planned.

In most smut series, the girl is a defenseless idiot, and it leaves you thinking most of the time just what the hell the males see in her. It's always the same rinse-and-repeat plot of "haha, I'm an evil douchebag, I shall take your virginity away" and the girls, being idiots, always think the same of "ohhh no, please don't touch me!" but over time, they fall for the guy and think "ohhh, I don't care if he doesn't love me, he can go ahead and fuck me all he wants".

In Kyou Koi, the male is still the douchebag who wants to screw the girl just for the sake of screwing her. And Tsubaki, of course, stands by the whole "ohhhh no, dont touch" that follows, as mentioned above.

HOWEVER, the difference between this is I actually felt something for Tsubaki. Even after she fell for the guy (typical shoujo), she stood by her decisions and morals of say, not letting Kyouta touch or kiss her if he didn't mean it. Basically, she didn't want to be toyed around with.

Even if she is pathetic when compared to any other girl in the universe, in shoujo, the girl standing by her previous morals and crap even after falling in love is HUGE. Normally it's "oh shit, I fell in love. k lets forget about everything else, my morals go out the window". I liked that Tsubaki didn't suddenly decide to become Kyouta's plaything just because she fell in love. During their first date, she gets pissed that Kyouta is in it for the sex, and when he's about to put the moves on, she gets pissed at him and ditches him, dissing him on being just a womanizer ("Is this how you treat all girls?" or something like that).

Then when she's at school, and she walks in on Kyouta and that other girl, and then Kyouta wants to touch her and shit, she gets pissed and says "Don't touch me if you don't mean it." That seriously formed a knot in my stomach of pity and sadness for Tsubaki, and I was shocked that I could actually feel for her. Tsubaki, a shoujo character!

I liked that she stood by her morals, no matter what. And when the whole sex situation comes up, she still goes by her morals of wanting to walk down the virgin aisle. Of course, as most teenagers, she gets pressured into having sex. She almost gives in, but is terrified of it (so at least she doesn't think "Oh god, I'll give him my virginity because I love him so much and I want him"), and I honestly don't think she would have gone through with it either way.

Then they don't end up smeckzing, cause Kyouta turns out to be not such a huge prick and actually takes her feelings into consideration then, and promises her not to rush her into anything (A shoujo male saying that. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?!). I was so shocked. For once, a male lead takes the girl's morals and feelings into consideration! For once, he doesn't say "fuck it" and screws her anyway! Wow!

I know that this isn't much to go by, and it isn't that impressive overall, but if you compare it to other Minami Kanan series or most shoujos out there, Kyouta and Tsubaki are pretty much amazing.

Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu stands by it's shoujo roots, yet unlike most shoujos, there's actual character development (especially in Kyouta) and the plot itself doesn't revolve around sex, sex, and sex. In fact, there's no sex at all!

It's quite shocking, really. But I enjoy this series. It's a nice change from those asshole-playboys-target-defenseless-females manga out there.

I'm surprised to say I'm not as disappointed with this series as I thought I would be when I first started reading it. Now this, along with Hapi Mari, are the only series I'm following very closely. I've given up on reading manga for the most part. : P

Good job, Minami Kanan. You finally learned to write not such shit series.

EDIT: I feel I gotta add this, after re-reading the first 3 volumes of the series (volume 2's quality just is... *shudder*). I think I understand the reason why my heart breaks for Tsubaki near the beginning. I can relate to her. Can't all the girls here? I know how it is having an unrequited love, particularly one that's not serious about relationships. & I know a lot girls think "a fling is better than nothing", but take it from me, that fling will just cause more pain & emotional attachment, so it is not something you want.

It's... it's so sad. ;__;

Definitely dropping this

It's not the cliches, I'm used to those. It's not the art, it's perfectly fine, not good but alright. It's not that it's smut either (which is a mild turn-off but I knew what I was reading when I started). Really, it's the characters, how they interact and how they're portrayed. Ugh!
After reading halfway through this series, I have come to the conclusion that I despise Tsubaki in every way. She's weak, appears to have almost no common sense, can't understand thing about anyone around her and she never realizes when she's done something incredibly stupid.
Kyouta is an idiot too. He's your typical shoujo male MC (Good looking, smart, loved by women, etc, etc) but that's not the problem I have with him. My problem started when he technically assaulted Tsubaki (who hardly bothered to fight back, really, how many girls wouldn't kick a guy for practically molesting them?) and it only grew from there. The author tries to make his decisions seem heroic and well planned when the reader wants to strangle him and go "Why the f*** did you do that?! That didn't even make sense!"
And don't even get me started on some of the side characters this author has thought up. They're only there to create epic drama that leaves the same taste in your mouth as sour milk. It's all, "Oh, he's paying attention to another girl now I'm going to cry because I am now useless." Ugh -.-
I stayed with this series as long as I could but I simply can no longer read it. It's an average shoujo of this type if I'm being generous. Dull story, dull (and annoying) characters, the art's plain (I don't why people are saying it's so good,) and it's too long for its own good.

And there is my opinion. smile

With this being a Minami Kanan work, I didn't have high expectations when I first started reading. Her heroines tend to be incredibly weak and useless. Lack of communication is a major factor for all the drama that happens in the manga and it is boring since it gets repetitious. Tsubaki seriously needs to grow a backbone because her constant insecurity in her relationship with Kyouta and lack of confidence in herself is painful to sit through. It is tiring and predictable when girl after girl pops up to cause misunderstandings in the relationship when it can all be resolved with a simple conversation. Also, why doesn't Tsubaki call Kyouta by his first name? After everything that happened you'd think she would...

This is like another one of your shoujo manga, but i liked the drawing quite a bit. I find this type of manga drawing soo cute hehe...
I agreed with the comment made by a previous reviewer, although the plot is another one of those many others typical hero-heroine lovey dovey, but the added touch of the author does change everything.

I literally loved the manga at first... but... omg! Last few volumes were just making me mad! But the last few chapters made me especially annoyed! I stopped to like it because of Tsubaki... she should be smart, but no, she is just so stupid ---> hate the: jealousy, can't express myself, dumb, clueless, looking to much into things type!!! I will read it till the end since I've already seen 12v... but sad it's just sad. My rating dropped from 8 to 5...

It is good, in its own ways....it has good humor and excellent artwork...its just....very predictable and annoying as the story progresses. The plot is virtually...a rollercoaster...Its sections are fast, and short...and it goes UP and DOWN and UP and DOWN...to the point where you want to throw up....i mean...they are good ups and downs...but there NEEDS to be an end at some point before the story itself turns sour and bad. I stopped reading at volume 7...it was good just...i can't read it in one sitting since its starting to grate on my nerves. Its a good read overall...people who are looking for a sweet, funny, cute story...its for you....for people who like a little more depth and less annoying plots....I would recommend to read it in sections (not in one sitting) or dont at all.

I think it's cute, I mean when you're the girlfriend you feel troubled by stupid things. When you're in love you just feel so happy, and doubt anyone..you turn into someone really silly.
I like this manga because it makes sense.
It is a nice manga, I liked him and her, because it makes sense.

So how many of you knew what you wanted to study


and it is much better than those shoujo where they only kiss a few times, E_E in a relationship you'll have lust, so come on, don't be all mean with one shoujo just because the girl is annoying, I bet when you're in love you think you're annoying everyone and you let your emotions flow instead of the logic. smile

I think people should only submit a review when they finished reading the manga... manga not finished yet (translated) and how everyone already has a opinion about this? or leave here the chapter where you dropped, it would be much more interesting to than leave a review if you only read 4 or 5 chapters...
