Nina's neighbor, Kyousuke, is starting high school while she's still stuck in junior high.

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.

It's ok. And by the way, this is not the first manga to have this sort of ending. I have read many similar titles. There are a few things that bother me though.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Early in the manga, if she was really so in love with him, why did she reject his kisses twice. That's not the way to convince someone you love them and want to date them. Also, if he really liked her all along, then why turn down her confession and date someone else. It really makes no sense at all. Last but not least, she seemed to move on rather fast. Under normal circumstances, it would probably be normal to move on in the given amount of time, but I think it was be nearly impossible to move on while living next door to the person and interacting with them on a daily basis.

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! ---------

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.

My prediction went a little bit wrong in a good way

When I first read a few first chapters, I thought: "Well, another typical shoujo. This guy would date that beautiful girl, leaving this Nina girl chasing him forever. The couple will spilt up at some point and Nina will get the guy she wants". When Miyake-kun showed up, I thought: "Well, it's obvious that he likes Nina. They're gonna date and then break up and then she will go back to Kyousuke. After 10 volumns, Nina and Kyousuke would definately end up together."

And as I went on reading, it turned out that my prediction was a little bit wrong, which actually made me relieved and excited. After all, despite being a typical shoujo with the expected love polygon and a cry baby heroine, Tonari no Atashi have a slightly different but still a happy ending. The protagonist finally realized her true feeling and be with the deserving guy smile

However, this manga would be much better with fewer tears. I love the way Nina became more mature but does she really have to burst into tears almost everytime?

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
