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.

I'm rooting for Mamura and Suzume. Do your best!!!

I like all the characters, especially Suzume the main character. But what started out at first as a really decent shoujo, with good artwork and a refreshing protagonist quickly fell down once the author tries to introduce the love triangle into the manga (badly.) Mamura is a nice character and I like him, but he's static and hasn't proven to have any definite characteristic besides his misogyny and missing mom. It's so odd how fangirls love him despite him contributing nothing but be the second male lead of this series, and I like him but seriously, tumblr is overthinking his character and personality.

I thought Shishio was a much more interesting character but the author totally took his characterization and made him into
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
some selfish guy looking to seek his love back
She took a pretty decent and interesting character and totally derailed any development from him. At this point I don't give a sh*t about who ends up with who, I just hope Shishio gets his redemption and his happy ending.

The great thing to come out of this is Yuyuka, who I think has come around nicely from her first appearance in the series.

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.

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.

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.
