Description
From Yen Press:

The second year of junior high, when most students are in the throes of puberty and feeling the pangs of first love. Itís no different for Kanata Tanaka and Kazuki Yoshikawa, a girl and a boy who have been friends since elementary school. But even though Kanata and Kazuki are at the same point in life as their classmates, an air of adulthood sets the two apart. Kanata is taller and more attractive than the other girls, but the boys stay away because she seems too mature for them. Kazuki too stands out from the other boys, but the girls are wary of him because he seems like a player. And so, Kanata and Kazuki are thrown together in a charming, bittersweet tale of two very adult students falling in love like the teenagers they are.

I came in expecting amazing, but I only ended up at good. I was definitely under the expectation that it would floor me, and it kind of soured the experience.

By no means is it bad. I just wouldn't rate it above nice.

Compared to roller coasters like Yasashii Sekai no Tsukurikata, Ef - A Fairy Tale of the Two, or even3 am Dangerous Zone, this is a park bench and there is nothing wrong with that.

You might think I am crazy, but I can really relate to the music teacher somehow..I have just finished my practice at school, in the 7 grade the boys were so cute and innocent I really wanted to tease them a little...So I think the teacher character is quite realistic,despite what most of you think..

This is not a typical shojo story. Just as the characters are "mature", the themes presented in the manga, though light-hearted, are wider than the typical girlxguy. I found the secondary characters more interesting than the main couple. A very interesting read if you don't mind some silly plot mechanisms, like the reason of the secret relationship...

with me everything of main couple is fine, i don't complain anything. But the 2nd couple is suck. Girl -the teacher is too mature. She think mature, acting so mature.But the boy acting like a kid. Age is not the problem. But the boy not mature enough for a serious relationship like adults.This is the problem. Make a love with another girl same him, not an adult. 2nd couple is a bad idea. author will make them go further, i sure about this. So with me this story from 10 come to 1

Heartwarming, innocent, refreshing... Makes you remember your first love. I don't think the characters are weird or immature for keeping their relationship a secret. CulturaI differences on thing, I can imagine the fuss their classmates would make.

I like the 2nd part of the story too-- about the problem child and the teacher. I don't find it disturbing at all, the opposite actually.. I think the woman is a great teacher because she has a way to deal with the guy. Most teachers would just give up on him. Of course, locking the classroom and putting the key in her bra might seem shocking to some, but since it worked? I think that sometimes a teacher has to do something "not normal" to get to a student who doesn't act "normal" either. Not every kid is the same and not every will listen/pay attention to you just because you're an adult.

As long as they don't have sex, I don't think that romantic feelings between the teacher and her student are wrong.

edit; I think this manga is getting better and better biggrin Very cute. All characters are getting some development, which is awesome. I'm really looking forward to more. The teacher/student relationship is getting very interesting as well-- I like how Nagai is changing an maturing.

Reason for secret relationship...

At first, like everyone else, I liked this series, but did not understand why the main characters had to keep their relationship a secret. Then, I found out that in Japan, most middle-schoolers do not date, and the ones who do are seen by society as 'troubled kids'. Although I don't know how valid this information is, it definitely explains the actions of the main leads.
A refreshingly innocent read.

"They act so mature! But they are actually not! Hahaha"

Both the leads are bland characters and don't have any characterization besides "I act mature but I'm secretly not." The author never address why they don't simply act their age and have to continue acting out this farce. Dropped after 3 chapters.

People seem to over use the term refreshing, but for some reason, I really do think it fits with this manga (so far). The author is very good at taking these middle schoolers that are indeed mature, but still keeping them middle schoolers, with somewhat frivolous concerns and struggling with how to act in certain situations. The romance is very sweet, and their relationship is very realistic and open.

The teacher and the other student is a bit cheesy. Kind of creepy, but I like to think that she's more just messing with him, that they act a bit more like elder sister and brother.

Other than that, two thumbs way up, give it a read!

It's good up until now. It's a fresh love story between two teenagers, there isn't any drama so far, and that makes it a light and enjoyable reading. There's nothing more to it, but being simple is one of its strong points, I guess.
