This manga is best used as a source of laughter.

Apparently over in Japan girls who read manga have a height obsession as intense as Japanese otaku boys' big breast obsession. Thus it has become a convention in shoujo manga to have the boy be at least a head taller than the girl, and often skinny enough to blow over in a wind to boot.

In this case, though the boy is several heads taller than the girl. They look silly, almost grotesque, together, and I suspect tjat managing a kiss standing up would be a major contortion struggle for them. Conventions in popular fiction are hard to deviate from, and this mangaka didn't bother to here, when she set out to write a story about an extra-sort, shy girl. That's fine, I guess, for the girl readers--although I bet even some of them are put off by the sheer unliklihood of such a coupling.

As for boy and men readers, since very few of us are several heads taller than the girls around us (especially in Japan!), the vast height difference between the boy and girl in this manga makes it too hard to identify with the main guy in this story, and too easy to laugh at the grotesqueness of the whole proceedings.

True, the manga is not aimed at us. But if you're going to set out to write about an extra-short girl and her struggles, it would seem reasonable to shorten her bf a bit. I would think if these two were somewhere in the same height ballpark the relationship would come across as more equal and companionable.

I really loved this manga at first, but at nine volumes long it has kind of started to drag. I like the characters, but they don't really seem to grow as the series goes on (Hiyorin is, arguably, the exception to this). There aren't really any surprise twists, and all the love rivals and triangles introduced seem rather like forced drama rather than something potentially threatening or interesting to the main pairing. The romantic development is also slow almost to the point of glacial, which wouldn't be too bad if there was something else to focus on - but there isn't.

That said, it's light and fluffy and super sweet, and I have held on for thirty-some chapters now. The height difference thing is cute, and other than that it's typical shoujo fare, so if you enjoy that and are looking to read something just for smiles, this is pretty good.

Story?... well, I suppose I don't care that much for the main leads, but the best friend and Kou are interesting to read about, but not bad. Overall, I'd say this is a nice manga to read on a slow day. Nothing more.

But then the story started pissing me off more and more. I originally read this because I was like "ooh! A story about a short girl like me!!" but it just really gets super boring and repetitive very, very quickly. Main character starts little by little to have more confidence, but of course, not when it matters the most. EVERYONE loves the lead character, which honestly, made me start to hate him because he was just so unrealistic. Also a story that focuses on everyone finding "their true love" as seen with the main character's friend being paired up with the guy who was suppose to be the love triangle (they didn't even reach the love triangle stage and already the author is setting him up to be with another character). Very unrealistic and boring "slice of life" there are so many other shoujos out that that cover this same topic much, much better.

To me this is so BORING and more than a bit repetitive. i read this because of all the good reviews it seemed to have. I should have passed. It's not a bad manga if you like cliched shoujo (to the extreme) and reading the same thing chapter after chapter with the only difference being the situation. if it were a bit more face paced, I'd probably stick with it but I've read 7 volumes already and there's still very little progress. I know it a slow romance, i just didn't think it would be at a snail's pace. So once again not a bad manga if you like a slow progression and looking for a laid back manga; just don't expect many heart thumping suspenseful moments.

Cute in a Weird way

Huge Height Difference and these are the sort of things that actually annoy me when i don't find the Couples Compatible but Hiyokoi surprisingly did the reverse for me

Characters are really good, even the side characters are investing enough for me to NOT have any particular character that i dislike (another Rare for me)

Story is Cliched alright, but this Social outcast Couple thingy makes it an Interesting ride all get this amusing feeling of how people around them react and how they respond to certain situation albeit Awkward ones

The Female lead starts out weak like most Shoujo leads but along the way she starts to accept the new things around her and gradually find Confidence for her lack of height

overall recommended....very cute manga albeit in a weird way

Splendid! I would normal avoid this type of manga but after reading the description, I was surprisingly attracted to it. Their difference in height made this couple all the more unique. And I am happy enough that the hero is not all that blunt. He is straight-forward, considerate and notices things around him. I am glad that there is finally a hero who is not obsessed with childhood friendships. Overall, it is highly recommended!

As a lot of people are pointing out, yeah, this is just another cliched shoujo manga. However, The girl is just so cute with some really oddball actions that you just can't help but smile. It's just a cute cute story and well worth reading. You wont be able to stop and you find yourself really pulling for this girl.

Pretty cliched, i hate it how many love rivals there are. I mean, it hardly seems like she likes him anyway because of how fast she fell in love with him. What happened to classic mangas where it takes more than five chapters to fall in love? Heck go for TEN chapters. It's ok, kill time manga. Generic shojo but its still pretty cute i guess, maybe i just need to lay off the love triangle scene ey?

The manga is just some cliche school life romance manga. The main girl is just a frustrating, shy, no confident cry baby. Overall, this story is expected.

However, I don't know why I still find it captivating. Probably it's because this manga has it's own uniqueness, with the characters having a height difference of 50cm. And, maybe it's because there isn't too much of a dramatic scene that makes me want to stop reading. Though the female lead is some typical crybaby, but I don't find her weak. Though she is not strong either, somehow, it just seems to me that she will try to work things through.

She may not be the ideal female lead and the guy might not be the ideal male lead. But maybe that's why it's still capturing my attention. After all, no one is perfect.
