I really liked this manga! It approached bullying and anxiety in a realistic way. (As a kid I had experienced something similar.) On the exception of a few exaggerated circumstances that come from being a manga lol. I loved that it had a happy ending and didn't leave any loose ends. overall I give this a 10/10 and suggest reading to all those shoujo fans looking for something a little less 'fluffy/sickly sweet'.

The girl in this manga.....she cries a lot. She says she is strong but all she does is cry until someone fixes her problems. It was good to begin and then turned into a "cry every 3 seconds" manga. Most shoujo manga start out with a great and capaple girl and then she is is turned into a whinney little bitch because she fell for some duech bag. That is what this is.

Why do I keep ending up reading manga like this and regreting it?!

I didn't find it that powerful; the emotions didn't seem to be altogether "there" and because of that I couldn't sympathise with the main character. To me, this seems to be a manga built on very little. Still, while I wouldn't recommend it (given that there are far better mangas out there) if you've got time on your hands, go ahead and read it smile

This manga was soooooooooo amazing!!
It points out the reality of school life and the bullying and fitting in, its got such a unique storyline.
I wish in particular for anyone girl and even boy in high school to read this.
The potential that lies in a manga can be so vast and heartfelt due to this one manga in particular.
I had cried in the last few chapters, there was something stirring up that had me tearful.
To be scared of losing the one guy you love and having to return into a hateful life is something that i can never lie about so i salute Hijiki for that.

Its succhhh a great manga. I think the length was perfect as well because it had a wonderful ending and a short and not too flashy future in-look which was adorable!

Also if i had a step mum like Hijiki's, i'd definitely wouldn't feel awkward around her! Hijiki's step mum understands Hijiki's pain more than her own father and what a stupid dad he was.

So beautiful... i might cry again just recounting it

At first i was really iffy about this manga, especially because of the art.
But as I kept on reading, I gradually started to love it.
I thought this series was adorable , though there were only a few moments where it was sorta cheezy D;
But overall I enjoyed reading it, & i looooved the ending <3
One of those endings where it makes you feel warm on the inside(((:

This was a tough one. I really enjoyed the art and I felt that it dealt with some real issues that a lot of middle school and high school kids deal with but it lost it's zing half way through. The art was well done.

Super cute and well done. I've only ever hated these awkward middle length mangas. Onshots and several volumes long ones for me, but this is a short one I not only liked but loved

This review is based on the first 5 chapters, so may not represent the manga as a whole, but I highly suspect it'll just continue on in this way. No doubt there will be entire fangirl stampedes for this manga (as the absurdly high ratings seem to suggest), except I can't see why. It doesn't do anything original, absolutely not anything original whatsoever. It's an awful lot like "Koko ni iru yo" or "Kimi ni todoke", all being manga where the protagonist is an outsider and helped by a guy, but I prefer Koko ni iru yo and Kimi ni Todoke because they actually have something a bit original about them. The outsider set-up has been done to death in shoujo, and personally I find the main character very boring. Potentially it could've been a very good "outsider" story but it's so predictable. This manga is overly dramatic, clichéd (especially in the bullying... oh my god), and the "twist" is really unimaginative and boring. Recommend Kimi ni Todoke and Koko ni Iru yo over this, both have more atmosphere and originality while retaining the fangirl approval factor I suppose this manga has.
