My Opinion with Spoilers
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I personally didn't like Arihara Ayumi choice, why can't the girl ever choose the outcast, why must it always be the pretty-boy?

you can't really hate this manga yet at the same time you can't love it. it's one of those things that you get through then you ask yourself is that it? there are some interesting parts and the fact that it is structured like a many mini-series all intertwined with each other gives it a little edge. it's not average yet it is not brilliant.
Much to be desired....
I loved the art, I loved the array of characters, but.... well, then it just ended.... I can't honestly recommend this to a die hard romantic comedy fan because it feels like just a teaser.... That being said, I still enjoyed it for what it was none the less...
This one really starts to look like School Rumble... and that means it will drag with a set of pointless relationships with no progress for several chapters/volumes...
If you were dissapointed with School Rumble then you can really look for another better series.
Ooo, now I get it.
Somehow, I slowly realized that Kawashita Mizuki-sensei want to make Hatsukoi Limited like School Rumble. All the characters are involved in triangle love. Good idea, but I don't hope its end suck like Ichigo 100%
This manga was quite short and a light read, but it left me with a satisfied feeling in the end. I would've liked to see the characters' futures, but that doesn't happen often and next to that, I'm not left in a confused state (so why the rushed ending/axed?). Well, the art was great, as always. Very cute and I can imagine guys being happy with the drawings, haha. The romance in the stories was sometimes a bit exaggerated, or at least the realism of the romances, but it was still fun. I laughed out loud many times and I liked the idea of the interlinked stories. You really got to know this group and had a great chance of choosing your favorite romance story if you weren't satisfied with another. All in all, a great manga.
BTW: <3 Kappaface & Enomoto's romance
Light, sweet, but takes concentration
As the title indicates, this is a story about first loves. As with real life, there are a bajillion different main characters whose lives intertwine, and as they grow older, they have some invaluable experiences. This is the kind of slice-of-life manga that makes you want to have your first love again.
It ended very nicely (if you can call it an end) after quite a bit of confusion. If it's too complicated, re-read or watch the anime.

Don't expect and you'll love it
This is certainly a strange manga. Various characters keep popping up and makes every thing confusing. But if you pay attention closely (as in read everything, not just skipping through), you'll find this manga quite enjoyable once you finished it. It won't be your favorite manga of all time. It also isn't a heartwarming love story. And it probably wouldn't last very long in your memory. But it's definitely something everyone can enjoy. The ending is also nice, there's nothing to be disappointed about. Although it leaves something ambiguous, it doesn't feel like it's incomplete. It's not a must read. But if you have a free sunday afternoon with nothing to do, it will certainly entertain you. The art is nice. The plot isn't serious, but somewhat interesting and relatable. The romance is okay. Overall a very decent manga.
Doesn't quite work out well
First of all, spreading the "story" out between too many characters gets really messy, leaving very little room for actual character development. Second, the manga is taking itself way too serious, which makes many things seem forced. Could have used much more comedy to lighten it up a notch. Good points are the artwork and *some* characters. (and that you're done after 600 pages)
Good "plot" terrible execution
Hatsukoi limited doesn't really focus on a large plot, however it focuses on a small plot for each character about their first love. Which would normally be fine, except that each character gets 1-2 chapters a volume, and I never really got attached to any of the characters. I think the manga would have been much better if it was just a series of oneshots in the same setting, because splitting the stories up so much really takes away most of the appeal.
