I Want Mamura \(>o<)/

I'm a huge sucker for student-teacher relationship.
I like how Suzume and Shishou first met in the midst of the crowd in the train station. It really was like destiny.
Shishou doesn't display an air of a serious teacher and I like how he can be really cool and caring.
Shishou is like Suzume's daytime shooting star, hard to see in the midst of bright light. Their relationship didn't work out for now because they're student-teacher.

Mamura however is like Suzume's nighttime shooting star. Mamura is always there for Suzume through thick and thin. If only Suzume would open his heart and see that there is somebody who is much closer that truly deserves her love.

Decent...and that's it...//slapped/

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.

I love this one. I'm a sucker for unconventional heroines. Suzume manages to be level headed and a bit of a space case at the same time. She tries really hard, instead of just sitting around being passive. The fact that this is part of what Mamura likes about her makes me like him even more.

I like all of the characters. They're all flawed but sympathetic, and it makes me really care about them. (Also, I absolutely adore Tsuru and Kame's character designs.) Even the minor characters are interesting and well worth watching.

As for the love triangle, I'll be happy whoever ends up with Suzume. They're both really likable, and have good chemistry with her. I admit, though, that in more recent chapters, I've been rooting for Mamura in particular.

Very good

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.

Simplistic, Decent

This is a pretty light read and overall a decent shoujo. Though, I don't think it's super extraordinary like some make it out as, despite liking it quite a bit myself. What makes this stand out at least enough to make it decent is its sensible realism and art style. Realism (in its basic concept) effects every part of the story, from how the plot goes to how the characters react. For example though there is a student-teacher relationship aspect, I feel it is done more tastefully than A LOT of other's I've seen or attempted to read. Additionally, the protagonist is very normal, sensible and down-to-earth in a pure kind of way. She's also draw very beautifully. And the male leads act a little more mature and rational. I also like them both (but maybe mamura more(?).

And finally, I find this a very simplistic read for two reasons, which is also partly why I don't find it going above and beyond. The plot is fairly simple and void of heavy or prolonged melodrama (sort of a good thing). And also by the fact that if I wanted to I could read most of the raws and I only know basic japanese from highschool a few years ago (LOL)... But maybe thats a plus if you want to read them and know a little japanese.

In all, it's good and I enjoy reading it. If you want a really great manga, mehh. If you want a nice high school shoujo I recommend it.

Nothing new is brought to the genre apart from the quite unorthodox main character, though I believe this uniqueness lies in the faces she makes. The deal-breaker for me was her jealousy towards a certain character. I can't stomach girls like this who act like that (sorry to be so vague). So, in conclusion, its a light, average, pretty manga when you want to waste some time.

(I like Shishou yet) Mamura appears to be quite clever in this story.
I can't say who's the "third party in this series and I hope it WOULD NOT be Mamura.
The female lead is tough yet her vulnerability overpowered her whenever she's with Shishou.
The art is so those googly eyes.

I was finding a good josei manga until i saw this one. This is a shoujo but not very shoujo -like the rest of the shoujos and that's why i got hooked into this manga. Not a common story for a girl to fall in love with a sensei and not a very cutesy protagonist. I love how she is, kind of awkward, but not to cute. Hey TheDreamHare! I also love Horimiya! As much as this one! I got hooked that i finished the 53 chapters in one day even though I was sick! Really looking forward to new chapters!!!!!! Excited for moreeeee!! Still rooting for satsuki! GO satsuki! And I'm a big fan of yuyuka and his cute sempai!

I really love this manga! I ran across the series on tumblr and fell in love with the art right away!
The art is so whimsical. So typical shoujo yet not really. I love it.

What really got me captivated is the love triangle. Yes, yes, it might be typical shoujo plotline, but it really worked! I am on my hands and knees praying for new chapters right now. I'm addicted to this manga! I can't wait to see how the romance panned out.
There's one female protagonist, and 2 male protagonists. First male is her teacher (Satsuki). The second male is her first friend in Tokyo (Mamura).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the first part (until like chapter 50), Satsuki seems to be "winning." But then something happened and Mamura seems to have a better and better chance.

I'm rooting for Mamura, haha. I didn't realize this is a popular ship until I read most of the comments on here. Haha!! I thought he was going to be the underdog, but I guess not. He is so shy but oh so sweet. I'm definitely squealing more for him. haha!!!

..just seeing appleorangehead's comment below, do you realize that Yosano is Suzume's surname? Yuyuka-chan's is Nekota.

I like this manga a lot and it seems to be one of the rare few where I don't think I'd be disappointed if she ended up with either of them. Though I'm still on team Shishio, but.. Mamura touches my heart. He is such a sweet guy and I love how both him and Suzume went through big character development. As for Yuyuka-chan....I like her! And the last chapter I have read (52) made me appreciate Togyuu too.
