Natsume fell in love at first sight with Rui, a very handsome boy she saw near the school gate. That was the first day of the new school term, when she became the second year of her high school. Nearly at the same time she got herself a new friend, Chiyako, a very beautiful transferred student who turned out to be Rui's older sister. For some reason Chiyako was determined to be Natsume's best friend, and naturally there's no way Natsume would refuse Rui's sister--and the easiest method to get to know Rui.

Natsume soon learned (mostly from Chiyako) that besides being younger than herself and actually her kouhai, Rui was also a real, professional model, an extremely moody one. He's a spoilt person that often showed a very nasty attitude. To top it all he HATED summer thoroughly and completely. But nothing of these could kill Natsume's love for Rui. How would Natsume, the simple and plain summer girl win Rui's heart? A funny, cheerful and romantic shoujo manga from Yachi Emiko-sensei.

What I like about this manga:
1.) It didn't drag on for too long, something that a lot of shoujo manga/s are guilty of.
2.) No angsty backstories here-- no lingering in the past-- just the story of 2 people living their lives in the present and growing into the future
For a reader looking for a casual shoujo read to indulge in, this series is miles ahead of others.

My confession is that this is the first shoujo manga i've ever liked. I guess it really depends more on the mangaka, as Yachi Emiko already managed to convince me of her talents with the josei series Ashita no Ousama.
Anyway i'd say this one is a bit more cheery and typical, but the execution is just as mature.

at first, i felt a little disappointed by this series because i had high expectations for this mangaka... my feminist side kind of came out whenever the heroine was weak and allowed herself to be pushed around by the main male lead. however, as reading progresses, you really feel the gentleness of their young and somewhat immature relationship, and get into the romance that is slow but realistic. if you want a light, sweet shoujo that makes you smile, read this. ^_^ all expectations met, i'd say.

A typical but decent shoujo

Nothing new here. A normal girl falls in love with a handsome boy. He's rude to everyone and treats her like crap, but she still feels strongly for him (!). Her kindness and "ganbare" spirit transforms him and opens his heart. If you've read some shoujo, you've mostly read this one. Even the main theme, modelling, is cliché.
I think it's a bit better than average because it doesn't suffer from some typical shoujo defects (I'm fed up with the "we love each other but we need 3 misunderstandings and 5 volumes to say it clearly"). There's also a few interesting or funny moments (I like their ugly dog).
If you think you'd rather read something else, I strongly recommand "Ashita no Ousama" by the same magaka.
