I loved this manga until chapter 76.
It crushed my heart to pieces and it made me realize there is no hope. The world will end and every single manga cliché will remain.
I hate the world, I hate sensei and I will more than likely hate Suzume in the next chapter.

Mamura you were a light of hope in the land of predictable shoujo. It was good while it lasted.

Goodbye world.

While the premise is unoriginal, it had the potential to become a really good series with great characterization. True enough, the author kept the story going for me with her characters until chapter 14 -- dropped it after that. The feeling I get from reading this manga reminds me very much of Ao Haru Ride, but their difference is that Ao Haru made me want to read the next chapter and with it comes the excitement of knowing what will happen next. Even though both have their cliche moments, Ao Haru executes it better in my opinion. If I didn't read Ao Haru first, and more recently Horimiya, I probably would have read more of this and given it a better rating.

Here. Love triangle is base on forced romance........which is .....sick.....not natural.....not my type....
.........plot is based on misunderstanding..............which is irritating ...and in unsolved ....
Here kindness is forced into romance .......
This manga failed to distinguish between friendship and love which is let down....
.its like ,the person I love is not (always) kind so I will force to love other person because he is kind but can't get over other person ...

I stopped reading shoujo because the couple I root for never ends up happening. -sighs-

I like Shishio and Mamura, and I really like Suzume. I wasn't impressed how in the beginning Suzume's country origins were emphasized and then later disregarded except for some kind of self-unawareness.

It's a decent shoujo. Very nice art, handsome guys. Even the girls with interesting hairstyles are actually a bit cute. Most of the characters will have your sympathy, and aren't completely one-dimensional.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm rooting for Mamura and Suzume. Do your best!!!

Rewriting for the impending ending:

The only redeeming factor of this is that the characters are all refreshing and likable. Suzume, the country mouse in a new city is really different from most of the shallow shoujo female leads and her foil, Yuyuka, is the perfect mix of sweet and sour. She starts off as the stereotypical b**ch but gets better along the way. Their friendship is nicely written out. While some may disagree I do think Shishio and Mamura are nice and likable characters. I think Mamura is a decent character but he has problems remaining as a static character without much development on his part. (So what happened with his missing mom that he has such a misogynistic view at the beginning?) Shishio is a more interesting character with his dynamic relationship with Suzume, who juxtaposes with his happy-go-lucky persona well. Like Mamura he faces some stasis in his character but does develop much more towards the later end chapter when he realizes his childish behavior and works to fix on it.

The problem with it is that the story introduces random scenarios to force actions to happen it and it doesn't seem natural or plausible to me. Also the writing got a bit messy and too dragged out with the included love triangle. I like all three main characters but not when they're placed into a stupid love triangle and having the two male leads "fight" over Suzume. I still think the beginning was the better part of the series; towards the end it gets to forced into this love triangle scenario that seemed unnecessary.

Ughhh this manga is really good. The current state of it is KILLING me rn but I really love this manga. I think the characters are my favorite thing about it.

The side characters, the main character, BOTH love interests, are well done and likable. I'm especially impressed at how much I love /both/ love interests because usually I just fall for the main guy and I want the side guy to leave lol. But Mamura is such a sweetheart and he's really a great guy so I really like him.

That said, I am a die-hard fan of a good age-gap manga and this one is no exception. I absolutely adore the character of Shishio-Sensei, I think he's amazing. And I am hoping that it's him who will end up with Suzume. At the same time, though, with just how good a character Mamura is, I want him to be happy. :') The impression that I get from him is that he's actually the male lead of a different shoujo manga and he got lost and wound up in this one. XD He is pretty great, but my two cents is that Shishio is better suited for Suzume.

Last note, for anyone considering this series:
I tore through all 70 chapters in about a day. It has a nice pace to it. It gives the side characters depth and story without distracting from the main storyline. The artwork is very pretty. (the guys are cute lol) The story is rly good and ugh. Imo everyone who's in the mood for a good shoujo manga should read it. smile

This manga is very refreshing for me, and is atypical of the shoujo genre (which is good).

The main character, for once, is admirably level-headed, and she doesn't have a passive stance when it comes to anything that disappoints her. She actively engages it and tries to solve her problems--that really makes me look up to her.

The guy characters are also relatable and enjoyable. I like both of them, and I'm kinda sad that one of them will be left slightly heartbroken.

the reason I'm not giving this a 10 is because, while it's good overall, it didn't leave too big of an impression on me--like Horimya did.

EDIT: just going back on this manga after a friend told me to reread parts of it. IT DID NOT LEAVE AN IMPRESSION at all... I totally forgot about everything pretty much.

don't get carried by reviews here and ranking of this manga . WANNA READ IT?

FAST READER >> if you can complete all volumes in 2 hours >>> read it.
SLOW READER >> if you need 10-15 minutes for each chapter >>> and you enjoy the quotes/dialogues/art then don't try it ever wastage of time ONLY 1 TIME READ WORTH MANGA .

manga is full of cliches >> shoujo one's >> forced movement of story but author in each chapter >> nothing natural and characters are forced to perform idiotic actions.

too much predicable and characters bump into each other occasionally and then whole chapter of 25 pages is made. [forced movement of story] >>> story is quite repetitive

whole manga is dragged quite a lot >> story is really boring at times in almost every chapter.
whole volume >> whole chapter package >>> bad
but few pages in chapters or panels >>> are good
ART >> really good and very usual of a shoujo manga

CHARACTERS >> are assigned 1 or 2 jobs/work/activity YOSANO SUZUME protagonist though show various variant of human personality .

except SUZUMA CHAN >> you can count on MAMURA DAIKI KUN >> though he also has very limited development.

AUTHOR try to create SPICY CURRY in each chapter and this you can see by reading only 2 chapters >> try 66-67
complete made up situation >> fiction .

STORY CONCEPT was good but implementation was dreadful . i am surprised how come this series is such a hit in japan and among english audience. >>> well same is true with other idotic shoujo manga series too.

I'm supporting sensei all the way. I've always been a Shishio x Suzume fan since the start till now.
They may have lost their connection during the middle of their journey but I believe that Suzume will soon find again her daytime shooting star.
Shishio did find Suzume in the midst of the busy crowd in the train station despite not knowing each other. I believe that they are fated for each other.
Ganbatte sensei, fyt for your love. We are not born perfect and we sometimes make mistakes that might hurt our love one but what matters are your true and sincere feelings..
Go Sensei!!!!!!!!!

Before anything else, I'd like to say that Hirunaka no Ryuusei is a good shoujo, so unlike 90% of the recent titles of the genre. Art was decent - a clean shoujo-ish style. The story pacing was decent. albeit a tad slow at times, Even though the overall story was not as original, it has been used pretty well.

So, in general, it IS a decent title, however...'Decent' is the only way I could describe it as a whole. This following paragraphs will be now my opinion on things, so no one's obligated to agree with me.

My major problem with this...was that it was...DECENT...and just that, decent. It didn't stand out for me, except for the fact that it's quite a lengthy series. I read a whole lot of positive reviews, and I'm very disappointed that it actually didn't reach my expectations. My manga preferences have skyrocketed lately, and sadly, this potentially great manga is a victim of my bias.
