Spoiler (highlight to view)
It's a realistic story of physical attraction, experimentation, maturity due to experience, and realization. It's not the typical romantic love story where you know the characters really love each other because it shows through their actions and words.
It has alot of overly emphasize sexual content which are not really necessary to develop the story. It also has various introduction and exits of characters, which was annoying but it did exemplify the theme of "maturing through time."
Before you read this manga, be sure you will be able to read the whole volume or you will end up disliking or misinterpreting the point of the story (for me the point is of the story is "somewhere down the road"). Also, be sure to have an open mind while reading the book, although I understand if you want to bash and shower the main character and other characters with hatred. XD
i avoided this series for a long time..
..because of the description and the yuri thing, but once i started reading it I realized it was all but that; sure, theres some yuri content but basically its still a genuine sex&love story (ok a little cruel, but thats life for you^_^). Sae is probably the perfect girlfriend for any guy : she's easygoing, pretty loyal , a little slutty and doesnt bitch around if you threat her like a toy (thats how a woman should be imho:-D) , so she's the only one i'm cheering for , takashi is a total jerk, his sis is a s**t (id say she's a pro at that) and the glass girl may have some serious mental illness; that aside im really enjoying this series and hope some more releases will pop out soon.

This manga is a strange one. It seemed promising at first, but it falls flat since it's impossible to sympathize with any of the characters (unless you're a gigantic ***hole, with more dick than brains). Basically, every character in this manga is either cheating on someone, trying to cheat on someone, or is trying to get someone else to cheat on their partner. Heck, there is even one character who cheats on the person she is cheating on another person with. Characters change who they care for every few weeks, so they seem extremely shallow. They dump people they earlier changed their lives for, after a few weeks. Basically, if Love Hina is an unrealistic extreme because the character's relationships never develop, this is the unrealistic extreme on the other side of the scale, since they have constant sex, have several partners at the same time, and switch them out every few weeks (despite declaring how much they love them). They **** all over the notion of love and dedication, and when the author tries to bring it up it feels cheap. I mean, how can you trust a character's display of love, if they've shown this exact same display of love to someone else they ended up cheating on?
[edit by mod for language content]
Basically, this manga frustrates the hell out of me, because the characters are disgusting, shallow liars, while the author apparently tries to justify their behaviour.
A lot of fun to read
Though I wrote fun, it was also depressing and even very eye opening. The story is a lot more realistic than most romance manga I've read. Maybe the ending isn't the most realistic based on chance but I have to say it was what I had hoped for. I feel like this manga has helped me realize a lot of thoughts and worries I wanted to avoid. Most stories I go through can be enjoyable or depressing but very rarely do you come across a story that really gets you going and makes you think about the future the way this did. There were times when I wanted to put it down but I wasn't able to, I don't know why or how but I did feel connected to this particular story. I hope you will enjoy this manga as much as I have.

Haru yo Koi is awesome, I love this manga
At first, it seems to be a typical / bad yuri manga. But, as you read on, you'll see development of relationships.
The thing I like best about this manga is that the characters can make many choices. Each choice leads the characters to its own direction, there is no clear boundary between right or wrong choice. There is no obvious match up, no character destined another. All the characters make their decision with their very own emotions. Truth, lie, love, hate, pity, compromission, guilt, dare and doubt make the them very human.
The are some parts that are quite bad, but you know life is kinda the same. I love the ending, very well done.

Don't know what to say
As the title says, I don't now how to describe this manga. I read it in one go, 6 hours straight (hopefully not more). After finishing it I must say that even so there were many times I didn't find it very interesting, depressing and so on I couldn't let go. It is simply nothing special but it is more than worthless. I can't even really describe what was bad about it. If you are unsecure if shall give it a try, read the first 2 volumes. The manga will proceed in the same way.
This was one of the first mangas I have ever read (First being Bitter Virgin)...This did not turn out to be a yuri as misleading as some might make it out to be. All the characters are likeable. The main protagonist starts out as someone immature but slowly grows throughout the story. The story is kind of slice of life that's why there are some parts that make you kind of mad at the protagonist. Fans of seinen will not be disappointed. The ending was satisfying enough. I was hopeful of what was going to happen, and the author delivered. Couldn't have asked for more.
awesome, must read
This is one of my favorite series. Off the back, it starts with a twist, yuri, but that's the tip of the iceberg. If youre looking for yuri, haru yo koi isnt for you, the yuri is merely the introduction, the eyecatcher.
Tons of romance, drama, and more than one slice of life, albeit told from an ecchi (in that respect, mature/seinen) view. And i admit, it may have more sex than average, though you may like that, hah. Character development is good, plot development is great. A great story.
Romance Not the Right Word
This series caught my eye by the summary so I downloaded several volumes of it. I couldn't put it down, yet I wasn't enjoying it as thoroughly as I felt I should have.
Contrary to what some reviewers claim, this is NOT a real romance story. Certainly you would find this type of thing in the "romance" section of your local bookstore, but there is nothing romantic about this story at all. This is a slice-of-life story. Welcome to the world of modern dating taken to the extreme with weak relationships based on nothing more than sex.
This manga was not what I was looking for when I got started, and the more I got into it the more I realized such. Disheartened by the characters, who repeatedly betray themselves and those around them, I downloaded the raw for the very last chapter. I cannot read Japanese, but the expressions of the characters told me enough: the ending is a disappointment that only solidifies my dislike of the characters. I won't say what exactly happens, but the only character who seems to "win" is the character I like the least.
I'm rating this manga a 5/10. It's not a bad read if the story agrees with you, but if the story does not agree with you then you will come to HATE the characters.
Prioritize other romance stories before this one, especially if you are looking for real romance rather than just sexually charged shallow relationships.
