Loved the ending, no matter what anyone says. But Jesus Christ, the amount of crap that had to be shuffled through to even get to that point.

The angst got annoying real fast, sure, but I think the fact that she didn't end up with sensei was extremely refreshing. I hate love triangles by default because their always so friggen obvious but this one wasn't like that at all. In damn near every other shoujo manga like this, she would have certainly ended up with the teacher. I think it's just realistic that she'd end up with mamura instead. Or something like that. Honestly, I'm just glad it didn't follow the typical love triangle cliche.
Still, it was overall, an alright read, that is to say, I'd never read this again just for shits and giggles. To much stress.

So there are a bunch of haters here, but I loved this. It was adorable. The art was fantastic and the characters weren't silly, petty, or dumb. In my opinion, the ending was absolutely perfect. I'm keeping it short, but basically, I have nothing but good things to say about this one.

The author was so upset about how people only read this online for free and how it was unfair, and then she goes and pulls this on us. Well, no freaking wonder why we only read this because it's free. I buy a decent amount of manga (used to be a lot, but ran out of space), I'm glad I didn't buy this. It doesn't deserve it.

The art was good in this manga. The writing and plot and romance was mediocre, and the characters were also mediocre. Except for Shishio-sensei, really. He was off-beat and charming. I don't care for kuudere types like Mamura; he can be cute, but tbh he's really boring, and he had minimal character development.

The ending was rushed and out of nowhere and unsatisfactory, and not believable at all. Utter bullcrap and a waste of time.

There was no need to bait a Shizume ending.
It felt like she changed it last minute to go according to whom most fans were rooting for instead (wait, most people like

Mamura and Suzume have poor chemistry.
Not that Suzume and Shishio had the best chemistry either, but theirs at least worked somewhat.

ahhhh,, oh my i thought she was going to end with sensei .. i feel so sad for the all those trials and love triangles that happened!! and i thought mamura will find a new girl who will give everything to him because he is a super good person w/ a virgin heart!! .. But i have no choice because sensei ends up this manga with a shocking revelation. and i don't find suzume annoying so it's fine that she end's up with mamura ... I wish that i will find a man like mamura

Despite the negative comments about the ending being Mazume instead of Shizume, I had no problem with it. In fact, if Shishio really wanted to be with Suzume, then he should have went for it, and not wait until the very end to tell her his feelings. On the contrary, I liked Mamura, I liked his persistence, I like how he never gave up on expressing his feelings. To me, that is more valuable than someone who hides their own feelings 'for the sake of the other person'.

The ending, the ""Mamura has always been my daytime shooting star"", and the whole love triangle thing is a complete crap.

I honestly loved it at first. It was a very enjoyable read at first. It changed when the author just threw in the Mazume ending when she obviously hinted Shizume ending in the previous chapters. What? The ""Mamura has always been my daytime shooting star"" thing? Bullshit. Yamamori, if you wanted to make Mazume the endgame, at least don't throw in the (actually) pointless hints of Shizume. I sound like I'm not happy because Mazume is the endgame, but trust me, it's beyond that. I'm ??? 'ed by Yamamori's terrible story writing.

To be honest, I really dislike Mamura... I mean, he hated all girls just because a freaking divorce? Really? And Suzume is like, the only exception? Nonsense. That made me cringe. This, in ANY way, DOESN'T excuse his terrible behavior around girls aka misogyny. Ew. He didn't have any character development, just like any other character in the series (except Sensei, of course). The only character who went through character development is like, only Sensei. For heaven's sake, Sensei deserved better. In the end, he wasn't a protagonist, and after going through the hell, he only got two beers. That's it. Sensei's ending. Woah, thanks, Yamamori. You couldn't have done better! (claps) I thought Sensei's role was important to the story. He was Suzume's first love story, the first person Suzume met in Tokyo, and he was the one with the title ""daytime shooting star""? Eh, but, I must be wrong. In the end, Sensei was nothing but a man who got two beers when he obviously was miserable for, like, 25+ chapters? Or is it 30+? Right.

So, yeah. That's it. Mamura was the daytime shooting star all along. Shishio? Who's Shishio? Tsk.

This series had a great potential, but sadly, it went downhill. It went into a complete nonsensical, crappy manga. You will waste your time if you read this, except you read this manga only for its art. Sorry, but I'm not sorry.

I have no regrets going back to this story, coz even though Shizume is indecisive she still got things cleared up in the end, and that's good. i have no further complains.

I just felt bad for Shishio though, the man who got two beers.

Sorry. Not sorry. I don't feel like accepting it willingly so I won't. For me, it completely fails as a great shoujo manga.

Hirunaka no Ryuusei started out as something refreshing. A series that echoed similarities to Ao Haru Ride but also had its own charm and standing that differed from it. The problem was that it fell to the pits and never made it back up again. Understand that it has nothing to do with who was endgame (okay, no, it does, but only because the whole point of this comment is about about Mika-sensei's lack of writing skills which lead to the ending, which is the endgame). Character development is almost nonexistent (unless you kind of count Shishio). Heck, the main character, where character growth is THE most important, does not grow. No character reached the height of their possible growth and that's just how it ends.

I initially stopped my reading when it became angsty. Turns out, it never stopped being angsty. And not the well written kind either. I will not finish this. I refuse to until I can bring myself to comprehend what just happened in the end (which will be never as I can't come to terms with it). I and a bunch of other fans had high hopes. Too bad the execution was painfully poor all the way through because the premise was extremely promising. Such wasted potential. Even till the end, nothing but dust. It could have been amazing but it fell to be less than mediocre. Mika-sensei, if you planned it like that in the first place, you should have made it more believable. Rushed. Unbelievable. Unacceptable.

I'll quote miwacarroll from tumblr. (If you haven't read her post about the last chapter, you should.)

"The Man Who Got Two Beers." -miwacarroll@tumblr
That is the ending of Shishio. That's it. Shishio deserved better. The one who was able to grow and realize himself is the one to get the shorter end of the stick. In fact, he didn't even get the stick. He was deprived of his rightful, deserved ending. And the thing about Mamura been the true daytime shooting star is complete crap. What nonsense. Mika-sensei, since you were so persistent on a love triangle, then make it believable. Don't throw a couple together because you want it that way. I didn't feel that they were in love. But it won't matter because Shizume till the end. In my mind, it did happen. Idon'tcarelalalala. Chunchun.

Make your plot twist, that's fine. However, don't go stringing your readers and your characters like beads around one direction (and it feels so natural too in that direction) and then right exactly before you top off the story, you go smacking everyone in the other direction and you force us to accept it or leave it. Well I, for one, am leaving it. The endgame was planned already so, you should have made it natural. How careless of you to make

"The Man Who Got Two Beers" Shishio
to get all the crap simply because you were biased over another character. If so, you shouldn't have made him such a big part of HnR because you tossed him away like a used napkin. Honestly, you as a creator of them and their world, you should have been more mindful of how you developed the story, their story. Utterly disappointing.

For those who could bring themselves to last through the muck that was Vampire Knight, just to get to the end, you'll find yourself feeling a similar feeling that spawned as you read VK as you read the end of HnR. This feeling is the offspring of the feelings you felt reading VK. Be warned. Satisfaction not guaranteed.

@shoutoshiro. I'm guessing you liked my comment so much that you decided to rehash it in yours. I'll take that as an implied compliment. /wink

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.
