From Chibi Manga:

I don't have family, friends or a lover. But there's someone I love. We have that strange relationship: childhood friend.

Alternative Description:
Koharu and Nacchan are childhood friends which many of their friends thought they are a dating couple. Soon, after getting into senior high school, Koharu feel something different with Nacchan. While Koharu tries to figure out her feelings, Nacchan's already falling in love with someone else, the beautiful Saionji, but his love doesn't stop him from caring for Koharu. Does what Nacchan feel towards Saionji really be love? Why can't he let Koharu go on a blind date? "love is a word that describe so many kind of feelings"

Summary Misleading... Awesome retake on a childhood friend unrequited love story.   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I've read up to the latest raw released of this series and the heroine's situation is totally opposite of what is stated in the summary (except the lover part I guess... and the childhood friend).

Anyway this is another childhood friend unrequited love story BUT at the same time it is not your typical childhood friend love story because the author (thanks goodness) decided to replaced what you usually detest on those stories and replaced it with good stuff.

As of chap11, I'm really loving this. Koharu is lovable. I like that she doesn't dwell much on the negative part of her unrequited love but she tries her best to find the positive part on it. The main hero Natsuki is also a great guy, we might not know if he loves Koharu or not (that's not a fault, everyone is free to love whoever they want, that not a crime, don't hate him for it!) however he had proven multiple times that Koharu is a very important childhood friend. The side cast are also wonderful and interesting.

What I like most in this series is that the pacing is good, the story doesn't dwell much on the usual drama this type of stories faces but shortens it and takes on a positive root. I really can't tell how this story will end, the author has shown so many possibilities with the plot and right now I'm just looking forward to the next released.

I recommend this to people who likes this type of stories because you will enjoy reading this! And to people who read this type of stories in the past but got tired of all the cr*p the heroine normally has to take from the hero and now stays away from it. Don't worry Natsuki is awesome, he acts the way a friend is supposed to act, he really cares for Koharu.

I'm a sucker for puppy love that builds on the younger age, when I say younger it's 10 and below.

These two innocent best friend are so awkward, dumb at times and in love. It's a nostalgic feel when you are younger. Unlike other shoujo that tends to start the romance by two strangers eventually falling in love, in Hachikoi, they've known each other for the longest and we get to see the development on how they would became lovers, typical, yes, but it has unique charms.

Well it has the usual troupes like love triangles and so on and fort, the main couple stayed in love, no extreme out of this world drama.

A good read for younger girls, sho-comi should make more mangas with less sexuality.

I feel for the mc in this manga. She is earnestly trying to earn the male lead's affection but it's hard to read when the boy is showing affection for someone else. I've been there before and yeah it hurts. But since it is shoujo you can say without a doubt they will be together and I thank the scanlations for doing so much thus far. I look foward to seeing the main characters growing individually and also as a couple.
