The characters seem interesting and the artwork is pretty nice too, it comes to my fav (:
I'd love to see what will happen next. Please update more.<3
Give it a try, guys. It's amazing.

---- new update! ------


Like.. Why am I always falling for the second guy who will never end up with the female lead in shoujo manga? (Or.. maybe there are actually some rare cases..)
Sighs. Mamura is such a sweetheart. Aw.. I really don't want him to get hurt in the end. Honestly, our two main male characters are both nice guys. They have their own good and bad points. Sensei is okay but I'm still rooting for Mamura-kun. Yes. I'm weak towards those cold guys but I even gets WEAKER towards those types of guy who usually blush. Tsundere types are also cute, and Mamura is one of them. lol <333333333333

................... BUT.
I still have this horrible feeling that he's not gonna end up with Suzume. I've read a few comments here and it seems like you guys are also more into Mamura-kun, right? Therefore, Yamamori-sensei, please make a change in shoujo world and fullfil our wish!
(... or else I drop this series if I find out my dear Mamura is hurt. He's a nice guy and he doesn't deserve it.) lol.

As the story goes on........
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I have a VERY strong feeling that the main girl is going to end up with the teacher NOT Mamura-kun. What the...............
I used to be really really in love with this manga but now NOT ANYMORE. Seriously, please Yamamori-sensei, DO NOT MAKE MAMURA BECOME A MISERABLE GUY IN THE END. HE DOESN'T DESERVE IT! Love triangles are cool but I really hate it when the second guy's role is just to lend a shoulder to cry on, a person for the girl lead to TAKE ADVANTAGE OF when she is lonely or have some problems with her love! That is just really CRUEL!...............
I will keep reading this manga but... if Mamura gets rejected at the end, I will IMMEDIATELY change the rating from 9 to 4~5! I feel sorry for those guys who play the second role in shoujo manga. They don't deserve that.... Is there any manga series that there is a TWIST and the second guy takes over the main guy and become the lead!?..........

The girl is quite tolerable, if not actually enjoyable to read about. There's not a ton of annoying blushing, and she's not hopelessly shy or a crybaby. She's also got a sense of humor and a wit that anyone would admire. I'm not sure how I'm going to like the love triangle that seems to be approaching, but the characters thus far are likable and interesting.

The art is beautiful, exactly the type of art I adore for shoujo mangas. The story isn't really new and it's not exactly used either, but it's refreshing. The characters are interesting, although I don't care much for the sensei, he's cute alright but well... he's like every other quirky male lead in shoujo. Or I just really like the other guy more. I want to read more of this and more of the mangaka's works. She's (her stories lol) are exactly my type! Read it!

I haven't read a shoujo manga that held my attention for more than a week
Well, except for Horimiya, which is also one of my favorites this year.
Seriously, I've been thinking about these two works for more than a few months now. I know they release once a month, but, I find myself checking for updates almost each week.....that's how hooked I am.

One thing I like to mention are the characters. The heroine in particular. Out of all the shojo heroines I have read, she's one of those that really seems to stand out without trying, considering how simple she is compared to the typical generic heroine. She's not shy, or pitiful, or annoyingly aggressive. She has a level of confidence, without being conceited, yet has her moments of self-consciousness and awkwardness. She's smart, yet her grades could probably say....otherwise. She's also in, smart, slightly snarky humor.

And one of the things I about her, is how she deals with negative people, or negative and anxious situations. Rather than let something....whether it be a person, or a feeling.....put her down, she makes a point to actually try and DO something about it. If someone is belittling her, she makes a point to speak her mind, or even use physical force. Some of you might be imagining chairs flying, but I can assure you, it's not that type of kung fu situation....the thing she did was very simple and the situation was kind of rooting for her to do it. Personally, I applauded her for doing what she did. The things this girl does is both slightly surprising, and quite refreshing. And when it comes to her feelings.... she actually tries. She doesn't beat around the bush about it, doesn't have that "I w-wonder if S-senseii will notice me" (no pun intended) kind of attitude going on. No. She doesn't wait for fate to push her. She pushes herself.

I could say more about the other characters, and the setting, and the storyline, and the simple yet beautiful art, but really, no amount of commentary can help make up for reading the story. If you want interesting, and actually likeable characters, and a storyline that was probably told time and again but this time with a more interesting style, I highly recommend it. Granted, my score could change any time.....I'm kind of nervous by how many chapters are in this series. It makes you wonder if the romance is going anywhere at all. But right now, I really am enjoying it. The guys....I honestly don't know who to root for. This is the first time that I actually like both rivals.

If they license this series in the US, I'm definitely going to be first in line to buy it.

The characters are quite loveable, and the art is no struggle to look at. And though the story isn't anything revolutionary by any standards, the execution is not too bad. Would recommend if you are looking for a school life shoujo to read, and am looking forward to seeing where this one will go. 8')

(Unrelated: I'm totally rooting for Mamura. Um, his happiness, I guess? I don't care who he ends up with as long as he is still the huge dork he is nowwww. <3333)

the basic plot of this manga is like other mangas with love triangle, popular male lead and a teacher but what makes it super exciting its character development. suprisingly the second male lead is shy towards women and only ok to her. the girl's also not a type of annoying, cry baby. she seems cool and cold. I love it! a very good development for this manga.

Well, I like this so far. It was a pretty sweet and light read. Although I gotta say that I prefer Mamura (the second guy) more than Shishio-sensei. Mamura is definitely more interesting and has more chemistry with Suzume. Not to mention that through their friendship, they managed to change for the better. I really hope the mangaka will change her mind and go to the Mamura/Suzume direction rather than the obvious.

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.
