Description
Kuze Shunpei, a high-school student, is on spring break going to Hokkaidou when he loses his wallet. Stranded in the mountains with no money and his motorcycle having run out of gas, he passes out in the snow on the side of the road. When he wakes up he finds that he's been saved and brought to the Watarai farm, a horse ranch that breeds race horses. There he meets a host of various people, ranging from stable hands to the owner and his family (which includes four daughters).

Shunpei is completely unsuited for the farm life, and his city upbringing contrasts sharply with the hard labor required to help the farm out. Yet despite all this, he tries his best to become accepted. However, he constantly gets into arguments with Hibiki (the second daughter), who views him as useless. Things come to a head when Shunpei scares one of the horses, who throws Hibiki (Hibiki is a rider). Ashamed, Shunpei flees back to Tokyo for the rest of the spring break. But back in Tokyo, Shunpei begins to long for the simple farm life. Will Shunpei ever be able to return and prove himself to be worthy of being a member of the farm?

Its a nice manga. The general idea reminds me of Harvest Moon. A cityslicker, by chance, works on a farm. He´s only 16 so he can´t stay there forever. He befriends the family and visits during breaks. They usually skip to the breaks.

It teaches about horse racing but while I like it as an environment, I don´t care too much about it.

Still it´s a shame something like To Love Ru gets people translating it but not this. This story is nice in the same way that the city guy enjoys the warm, and friendly farm.

It also has that nice 80s look too. I can´t imagine why the story would need as many volumes as are listed. But I hope this gets picked up by someone.

its not bad, but not great, the average rating is about right for it. The art is kinda plain, but the horses are done really well. The story line seems pretty unique, but i can't be to sure since there is only 25 chap, from about 5yrs ago (fail). Were the only complaint is, is the very standard characters. I still feel it is something that needs to be completed so i hope someone picks it up in the future.
