Description
Nina's neighbor, Kyousuke, is starting high school while she's still stuck in junior high. Just walking to their nearby schools together isn't enough for her--especially since they keep running into Yuiko: a beautiful, outgoing girl in Kyousuke's grade who also seems to harbor feelings for Nina's next-door neighbor.

I thought this would be a good read at first. And after reading up to the twelve chapters that are out, I ended up getting really frustrated. I feel sorry for the main girl, Nina. She's kind of pitiful in ways cause she's so in love with Kyousuke. I find Kyousuke quite wishy-washy. He's kind to Nina, but at the same time, he rejects her and that sort of sets her hopes up. On another note, the rival girl, I find to be a bitch and a whore lol. Because, she loves her senpai who is cold towards her but she seeks comfort in Kyousuke because he's nice.

Honestly, I want a prince to come and steal Nina away from Kyousuke >__>; See how you feel when that happens. lol Other than that, I'd say its a good story considering it is making me mad enough to rant about it.

Awww. I'm loving this.
I love plots where the main girl loves the guy, who doesn't notice how much he loves her, when he's losing her.
It's also very realistic, and it's always so interesting.

this is one of a few refreshing manga available out there.
the storyline is somewhat cliche, but my perfect rating goes for the ending.
so I will review about the characters more than the storyline.

Nina - she is not that much of a crybaby to me. She is just a fourteen year old girl and compare to other 'real' crybaby heroines, I think Nina only cries at the right time and I don't find her annoying. when she was broken heart, she didn't spend her time crying or stalking or chasing. instead she keeps standing on her feet and tries to deal with it.

Kyou - he is somewhat... confusing. he is not really a bad boy in my opinion, but his act is totally random. I don't know what kind of reasoning he uses to make a decision. I keep going 'why this, not that?' or 'why now, not then?' every time he decides on something. and Kyou, do tell me, if that what you think about your relationship with Nina, what not try to change it in a way that wouldn't make it worse?

Miyake - now this boy is totally sweet and cute. he is nice, but not a flawless angel. in fact, he does have a lot of flaw. he is typical shoujo character that I always root for, but usualy ended up broken heart. I don't get why he is so genuinely in love with Nina, but in the end his attitude towards her is the one that matters. and I like seeing him together with Nina.

Asou - she's not that hateful for me, though I'd like to know why she has that acute of inferiority complex over relationship.

what I like the most about this manga is everyone makes a mistake, realizes it, and tries to fix it. and in the end, they really got what they deserve.

This is one of the best shoujo in matter of angst. Love every bit of it and Im so rooting for the other guy, Miyake, which is absolutely adorable and one of the best guys in shoujo EVER. Nothing against Kyosuke, but Miyake FTW.

The artwork is quite simple, but yet still looks cute at times.

However, I don't like how this manga is going.. I just don't like guys like Kyousuke. He's so indecisive. This series is just like Heroine Shikkaku, but Hatori is kind of childish while Nina's quite a crybaby.

UGH. I'm rooting for the other guy in this series, TOO. I just don't get why girls are always running into those troublesome guys. Why can't they see that other guy is really KIND and CARES about them? Loving someone so deeply then just getting hurt. That's just ASDFGHJK. I feel sorry for those guys. Is there any shoujo manga that the main girl realizes that?

Oh well, I guess I'm gonna keep reading this to see how things are going. But I have a strong feeling she's going for her first love..

Gosh.. No, just no.

--------- new update! ---------
OMG YES. VOLUME 10.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
SHE ENDED UP BEING WITH MIYAKEEEEEEE! I'm gonna faint. Finally, a shoujo manga that the main girl actually chose the second guy <33333333333 Actually, I wanna see them together for a few more chapters. Mhm.

I'm not into that kind of cliche shoujo, and if fact, i'm glad this wan.t one of those. Although there are 10 vol, it didn't feel like it was too much to dense, and stuff. It's a very nice, and pretty story, with some parts that maybe would've been better if they were explained a little bit more.
But aside of that, in was finally refreshing and it didn't dissapointed me at all. Even in the extras are things that complete some missing thoughts and feelings. Loved everything, Miyake looks like Roxas though (pretend you didn't read that).
A shoujo like it's supposed to be, more or less. More realistic.

A must read. X3

This was an above-average read. I liked the art, although the side profiles of the bodies seemed super..um flat? The story was slow, and very slice-of-lifey. The protagonist was a cry-baby, but honestly it didn't bug me, because her personality was still strong and she wasn't like those irritating whiny protagonists.

The cons..
-I found the story to be a bit too slow.. by the time I finished, I was surprised that i had read ten volumes.. in those ten volumes it felt like not very much happened..I guess because there wasn't any of those cliche shoujo plot schemes (which is a plus), but yea.. kinda feel like it could have been condensed.
-The ending was good, but felt sort of unfulfilling.. like I said it was ten volumes but I felt like not much had happened.. I guess its because the ending-couple finally gets together in the LAST chapter, and I ended up wanting to see a bit more. Sort of like Strobe Edge except Strobe Edge was more eventful.
-I liked Kyou. I did hate him during some parts, but I switched between rooting for both him and Miyake. That said, his character felt very 2D.Therefore it was a bit difficult to understand him/feel for him. Miyake was better, although I wish the author would have added some more background to him too.. Character development is especially important for these slice-of-life mangas.. This was the biggest fault of the manga in my opinion, other than the painfully slow pace.

I'm gonna start off by saying ITS ABOUT TIME. what do i mean by this? Well... it's about damn time someone makes a manga like this, I am so happy about the outcome and I'm so glad It didn't turn out the way I thought it would. It was definitely an interesting and refreshing read.
The art is amazing of course but what I really really really loved is this [WARNING: don't read this comment if you're even 10% sure you might read it]

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I LOVE. AND I MEAN LOVE that she ends up with Miyake. It's just so much more realistic and refreshing! They go out and start to really love each other and she grows with him and they grow up together. I was so afraid that she would go back to Kyousuke once she realizes how he feels--like a typical shoujo manga would-- but she doesn't! She realizes that she's moved on, she loved Kyousuke and he's important to her but she's fallen in love with someone else and she makes the right choice of getting back together with Miyake.


I loved it I cannot begin to express how great it wrapped up in the end. It definitely destroyed the typical shoujo ending that I'm sure everyone who read this THOUGHT they saw coming and blew people's minds by the twist/shift in the end. LOVED it.
****I seriously recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of something new.
