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.
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.

I love it :)
Never have I ever found a main female character in a shoujo manga that is a crybaby and is weak yet is adorable and completely likable. Hiyorin is certainly the case.
The plot of this manga isn't mind-blowing, in fact, it is definitely cliche. But it's the characters that keep me going. (And the author doesn't use cliches in a vomit-inducing sort of way, thankfully - mostly this is because the character is so likable!)
I like how even though Hiyorin is a crybaby and weak, it's not used pathetically as a trait just to de-Mary Sue her. It's used as a flaw in this story - she wants to overcome this; she doesn't try to run away from her problems, like a previous reviewer mentioned.
I love how the artist has the ability to create heart-warming (yes, I know, cliche xD) scenes...the art is lovely, not the best, but very cute and shoujo-like...and the reader is able to feel what Hiyorin is feeling, in terms of romance. I like that. And it's not vomit-inducing at all.
Also, I like how Hiyorin accepts the fact that she likes Hirose, it's not that whole "girl-is-too-dense-to-realize-that-she's-in-love" thing. And I like that Hiyorin likes Hirose for his personality, not his looks.
Hirose is really adorable. He's decent looking, but that's not the main point. It's is personality that brings him out - he's outgoing and friendly, especially to Hiyorin, which is probably why she's attracted to him in the first place. I love how in here, friendship comes before romance (although she was rather quick to admit she likes him).
Anyway, I recommend this to readers who enjoy fluffy, adorable romance and a lovable female character. Not for shoujo fans into smut and tsusendre girls (unless you like all types, like me ).
really cute !
I have read the first 3 chaoters so far and it is really cute !!! both of them are so cute together !!!! I agree it is not an original story, it is a typical shoujo but because this is really a nice one I don't mind reading it !!
As another person had said earlier, most of us reading this series are probably a bit too old for the intended age group. Shoujo in Japanese literally means, young female. Ribon Magazine (the shoujo magazine that this series is serialized in) is targeted at 9-13 year olds in Japan, so keep that in mind before you read this. That said, this series is in no way, shape or form a series about pedophilia or lolicon (as another reviewer here thought it was too much like one). The main character is simply just short. She can't help her height.
Anyway, onto the review! This series is your typical shoujo manga about a shy girl who's not too confident. She struggles to make new friends and struggles to tell the guy she likes how she feels. As Hiyori's confidence grows, so does her height! Her goal is to tell Yuushin (the super tall guy she likes) how she feels and catch up with him in height.
My thoughts: HiyoKoi is very cute series! The main character reminds me so much of myself (although I didn't hide or run away when I got embarrassed) when I was in high school. Reading this series actually made me want to fall in love again lol! I definitely recommend it to anybody who loves shoujo with cute artwork!

i've only read the first two chapters, but judging from what i've read so far, it seems like a typical shoujo. hiyori and yuushin are pretty cute together and the art is nice.
I really love this manga! The main character is so cute and really honest, being able to show weakness when she's takes steps she was unable to do in the past.I usually hate crybaby heroines, but Hiyori is different, she's lovable and reasonable. Especially since even though she is painfully shy, she's trying her hardest to change and become someone more outgoing. The way she both loves and admires Yuushin is adorable too! Hiyori is someone shy people(like me) can relate to. the author did a great job with this manga and i really wish it was published in English so could own the all the books. I recommend this 100% ^_^

yes this is for girls!(but guys can read it too!)
This series is for YOUNG GIRLS (early middle school ect..) so to be honest most of us reading and rating this series are probably older that the intended demographic. (WHICH IS WHY TO SOME IT MIGHT SEEM DISAPPOINTING!)But it is not at all its a rather pleasant & cute read (IT'S NOT LOLICON BTW !) the story & flow so far is rather good and the art is improving as the story also goes on. though some of it is cliche but it's shojo lol. btw i had my friends younger sister read this (she's 12) she rated it a 9/10 and I (22yrs) thinking what would I have really rated it if i was in the age bracket of 12-16 would have given it a 6 1/2 so I went with a 7/10! also Though the female lead can be a bit shy & crybaby I like how she's working on improving herself to be better on being more outgoing and not running away from her problems every time.
Stress-free and Wonderful
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!
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.
