Along with his crazy cast of friends, Morita, Mayama, Yamada, and Hagumi, Takemoto sets out to discover life and his true self.

If you're looking for just romance, the series may not work for you. It is an amazing slice-of-life story. Each character is different and has their own unique life to cope with. Some message are so good.

As the person below me said, it was an amazing slice of life. The story actually came to life, you could watch the characters grow and change, it was amazing. That manga had so many great lessons in it. I loved every minute of it!

I loved this series, it was an amazing slice-of-life... The characters were fantastic, especially Shinobu! He will always stand as one of my most favorite characters in manga. xD Nothing too angsty and all the problems in there I was able to relate to as an artist.
Though there were a few minor points I was a little concerned about, after awhile it hardly seem to matter.
I'd recommend this for anyone!

So I watched the first season of the anime, and was completely unimpressed and disappointed. It gets such great reviews but I totally didn't like it. First of all, I don't get the appeal of Hagu. She's 18 but looks, and for the most part acts, like a child. And she has two guys who fall for her. Why? Do they have Lolita-complexes? Secondly, the romance in it is totally disappointing. Basically, everyone has an unrequited love. And for those who confess and are rejected, never move on. They just sit around waiting for their situation to magically change. Boring. At least try to seduce your love or something. Granted, I haven't watched the entire series, so something might change later on. But I really couldn't stand to watch another episode.
There were a couple of things that I liked. I like the whole, coming of age, trying to figure out who you are aspect. Also, it is pretty realistic. I usually like these types of slice of life mangas. Unfortunately, this manga will make you realize that sometimes, real life needs to be embellished.

I just don't know what point I should rate this manga. Okay, I admit that some parts of it are really good and touching that make me cry. But after reading whole 10 vol, I just can't understand almost anything...

I can't believe this manga has so many negative reviews. I'll throw in my opinion.

At first I found it somewhat tedious and quite aimless in terms of plot. I was really expecting something different, but please please PLEASE give it a chance. It takes a while to start to care for the characters, but once you do, wow. I devoured the last five or so volumes in one sitting. Personally I really like a coming-of-age story and I think this was just so honest, thoughtful and profound in the way we saw the characters develop. I loved the comedy - I had a few fits of hysterics, mostly at Morita, but sometimes I thought it was a bit on the excessive side. The art is NOT horrible in the least, I really liked it. For once there weren't any panels where I thought, "wow, I hate the way the mangaka drew that character's expression/body." It's clean art and the mangaka knows how to manipulate it to depict carefully nuanced facial expressions and wonderful landscapes, among other things.

What is most amazing about this manga is its ability to juggle comedy and seriousness. At one point I was laughing out loud while still crying from a few pages earlier, and it didn't jar at all. And the characters are so brilliant and the way their relationships flow is so completely natural. And perhaps I'm just being soppy and sentimental but everything about this manga, particulary Takemoto's journey to find himself, really inspired me.

Give this manga a chance. I gather it's not for everyone but stick with it just in case, it gets so much better later on! People whose lives are changing/going to change will particularly appreciate it, I think.

Well Hagu looks and acts like a particularly dimwitted 6-year old, so the "love triangle" revolving around her is disturbing, to say the least. I just tell myself the two guys see her as a "muse" and not as a romantic object of affection and that helps gets me through the manga, but I've only read 3 volumes so far. Holding off on a rating for now.

I have to say, I really didn't like this manga at all when I read the first seven volumes. I thought that all the humor was getting pretty annoying and fksdlf just didn't like it.

A year or so later, I watch the anime series and my opinion changes. Drastically to the point that it's one of my favorite series now. I re-read the volumes up to volume seven and focused mainly on the inner thinking... and it was so much more amazing. I actually think the jokes are funny now, lol.

This story was so beautifully written. I can't believe I put it down the first time I read it.

I cried at the ending. It was so ... sweet.

Takemoto, Yamada, Mayama, Morita, and Hagu. I love these characters. I could especially relate to Takemoto and Yamada. They're sweet, pure, unrequited loves that they chased after. The inner thought of all these characters was amazing. I'll never forget this series. One of my favorites along with Lovely Complex and Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou.

I would re-read this manga any day.

10/10, deep story.

I have to say that this is one of those mangas that I just don't like no matter what I do. I've tried reading it again and again but I simply drop it because I don't understand what is happening in the manga and it simply confuses me throughout. This manga has to be one of the "worst" I've read and I just can't stand it.

It's strange. This was one of the few manga that I didn't like from the beginning, but loved when I reread. I don't know what it is about this manga, but I find just about everything quirky and charming. I remember reading the first volume and thinking "what the heck is this about? I don't get it". But now that I reread it, it's funny to me. Everything in it is amusing, and deep at the same time. It's an amazing manga. Please check it out if you have the time!~
