Yukino Miyazawa is the perfect model student. She's pretty, kind, good at sports, and is always at the top of her class; but she's not all that she seems. It's all an act of deception; she is really the self-confessed 'queen of vanity,' and her only goal in life is winning the praise and admiration of everyone around her.

When she enters high school, she finally meets her match: Soichiro Arima, a handsome, athletic, popular, and very intelligent young boy. Ever since he stole the top seat in the class from her, Yukino has hated him, and has been plotting on how to take back her former place as the object of all other students' admiration.

What she wasn't expecting, however, was that Soichiro, the very boy she hated, would confess his love for her; or that he would find out about her deception - and use it to blackmail her!

Together, they discover that they have more in common than they knew, and they slowly begin to bring out each other's inner selves.

This is a shoujo manga that truly ranks among the top ones. It's refreshing to not see a washed out, air-headed heroine but one that actually has a brain! It's nice and light hearted, with no unnecessary fanservice with more down to earth characters. It truly ranks up there with other great shoujo mangas like Ouran High School Host club.

no doubt one of my favorite mangas out there. <3 I really loveed Yukino and Arima. The other side characters had they're loveable moments too!

The manga-ka, I don't think, thoroughly thought about the characters enough. I think she had ideas about what to do about Arima and Yukino, and thus when the manga became popular, she added 'Arima's dark past'. But nonetheless, it was a very, very enjoyable read and I recommend it to all ages. (There were some mentionings of sex though LOL.)

=) But, please buy the manga since it's licensed and stuff.

Evolution of a mediocre series into a brilliance, although I must admit the "dark past haunting main character" portion is tad over used. Very enjoyable series though.

Wow, a very, very good manga. It has its slow and boring moments, but the great storyline and the deep characters more than make up for it. Definitely one of must read mangas out there.

Yeah, that was my comment bigrazz

I'm surprised that this manga didn't have any reviews yet. Imo this is one of the mangas that set the standard (along with Marmalade Boy and Hana Yori Dango) for "shoujo comedy romance with a touch of drama" that are everywhere.

Imo this has the best type of ending (I haven't read the end yet, but know how it ends,) with a future perspective of the characters as well as closure to most (all?) the stories. It's very refreshing to witness a great work with an ending that has such closure. We all know how often mangas are left with open endings.

Having said that, I noticed that the author re-wrote some facts later in the story (How Arima met and fell in love with Yukino) that she explained in much details early in the work. Inconsistencies like this pisses me off, no matter how minor they are.

I often find shoujo to be immature and childish, but Kare Kano is probably one of the best manga i've ever read. It's heartfelt and funny without being sappy. The character development is exceptional and I would recommend this for anyone.
