From Day of the River:

Our crybaby protagonist Hirahara Tsukasa hasn't always been a crybaby. Due to the death of her older sister Chihiro, Tsukasa hasn't been able to dam up the flood of tears ever since - even about little things.

She is further disheartened after moving to Tokyo from Hiroshima, especially after a series of incidents cause her and her four classmates to miss the bus and be late for the entrance ceremony on the very first day of the school term. However, it is precisely this event that ends up drawing her closer to maturity and fueling her determination to stop her crybaby tendencies. And perhaps, she may even find an unexpected love on the way...

A Nice, Simple Read!

The story is a lighthearted read, great for a relaxed afternoon. It's not too long, and the artwork is appealing.

The characters are likeable and the protagonist's/ Tsukasa's tendency to cry is a funny characteristic that I don't see too often. Although the plot isn't all that original, what I found interesting about this manga is their treatment of change and character development. It seems like everyone, including secondary and side characters, have a desire to be someone more, and it's quite uplifting to watch!

However, the ending was disappointing, there was so much that could have been explored and some issues that were left unresolved.

TL;DR I'd read it! It's not a big commitment, nice to read, with plenty of humour, and I finished it feeling good about myself.

The hero of this manga doesn't have everything together and he's awkward and not great at expressing himself, which makes him a lot more real and lovable. I like the main couple's chemistry throughout.

I kept waiting for Chisa and Miya to get together but nope! I think they belong together somehow.

As a girl, playing this card in a Shoujo manga is what makes the lead characters' love for each other much more deeper especially for such a predictable and typical story. And Nozomi's personality, given that he's supposed to be the sorta "evil" other guy, is actually likable and not even the least bit pathetic. Nice characters' presentation. biggrin

Can't say much for the little drama plot though.

P.S. Chisai and Misa though...

The artwork was good and I liked the plot. I was pretty sure I was going to like this one at the first pages hahah I thought the character's presentation was interesting and rather fresh for a manga.
And I was specially fond of

how Nozomi falled for Tsukasa because of who she was. The mangaka could have used the he-got-jealous-card when Nozomi realised Tsukasa was starting to feel something for Himeno, but she didn't. Instead, Nozomi actually gets to see who Tsukasa (even if him bumping into her and the other girls at the cafe is a little bit too much of a coincidence).

Apply some cute, contemporary art, and some light humour to a regular shoujo work and you get this. Honestly ten is such an overstatement. If anything, at best, this is above average. I admit the plot is not even that bad for shoujo. It's still ridiculous but all in all it's interesting. A few good ideas the mangaka had here and there- but it still wasn't astonishing work nor was it that much of a surprise.

Tsukasa x Himeno are the cutest otp ever! Like seriously. They are really really adorable. Of course, it's not the most original plotline and what not but I felt that the progress was good and there was some character development. It was a cute romance that I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, it ended when they just got together... I want to see more of them!

Well, this is a cute and lighthearted read at first glance. The drawings are appealing and match the high school and first love theme. Especially the male counterparts (Himeno's) facial expressions made me smile a few times, which kept going till the end. Kkk.

As the story goes on the plot also deepens somewhat and you can see some character growth, when the main character realizes her flaws and starts wanting to move on. However, she still has a way to go and in my eyes there is some space for improvement in this area left. E.g. ...

Comparing the feelings for the passed away sister of the main character with those of the lost cat seemed somewhat awkward to me. Also - Bringing up the love rival in the end once again to confuse the main character or let him struggle under the pain again, before finally clearing the situation was maybe(!) not necessary in that form (letting the MC play sick, let him drag her away overly dramatic...).

Aside from this, reading this was fun and the jokes have been pulled of well. The characters design was interesting and made me even want to know more of the side characters (Yes, I like those manipulative types wearing glasses. Lol.), right away after a nice first encounter of them.

I really like this story. Two words: Hirahara and Himeno (ok, three words). They are the cutest thing on this planet since - I don't even know. I ship them so hard that the only flaw I see in this manga is the annoying 3rd wheel (or other guy in the "love triangle') who keeps sticking around. It's ok though, I trust in my heart that she will end up with Himeno (if she doesn't there will be blood... LOL JK. Um... seriously though.) xD

Aw I'm not really into crybabies, but Tsukasa is totally an exception. She's really sweet and I don't find her annoying at all. The other male characters are also lovable. I love this story. I'm looking forward to seeing what's going to happen next.

From what I've read so far, it seems really good. What I like about the series is the fact that the heroine recognizes a flaw in herself, and wants to change. Shojo mangas usually gloss crying over as being a natural female trait or being cute. I appreciate that the heroine really wants to get tougher. Despite the fact that she's naive, she hasn't had an easy life. She's self deprecating and cares excessively about other people but it's nice.
I like the pace of the manga too. It isn't going too fast or too slow. It is cliched; there's no doubt about that, but it does turn some cliches around and it's a sweet story. The characters are good too. Himeno is your usual Tsundere, but while certain tsunderes can be annoying, he's really lovable. I like his quiet encouragement and protectiveness over Tsukasa. I hope she ends up with him.
The friendship is developing slowly but steadily. It doesn't feel fake. It's got a lot of humour too, and I think this is a good manga.
It isn't a masterpiece. It's a good way to spend an afternoon and releases are worth looking forward too. The plot isn't original but characterization and storyline makes it unique.
