I quite liked this manga, especially the characters and I think the slow romance and the ending worked really well, but I do kinda wish she went and saw Sensei again. It was abit long and I found it dragged on abit but it's still worth reading!

One of my favorite manga series smile Although the romance and the story can be a little slow its definitely worth it. The development between the characters is also nice and not too rushed. Even though this manga is pretty long the comedy and romance moments make it understandable. The romantic moments are cute and heart warming. The art is also very cute and well in my opinion A LOT better than many mangas I have read out there. It's a must read! smile

Honestly, one of my favorites. Some parts might have dragged on too long and some loose ends STILL haven't been tied up yet, but whatever. It's still adorable. And it's gender-bender. C'mon, what more do you want?

Ahhh, this manga was amazingg(: I absolutely loved, even though it was pretty long, the plot and artwork were fantastic. It would be better if they work on the ending a little bit more, like how Sano is going to propose and so on. I feel bad for Nakatsu but I hope he'll find someone later in the future. His roommate is hilarious (the spirit dude), then again, everyone was funny and special in their own way. This will definitely stay on my top favorite shoujo manga list! <3

I generally like mangas like this, and for the first 50 chapters or so, I did like it. But after that it seemed to drag on, and I began to wish this series would end quickly. The romance became tiresome and I wanted the characters to just get together.

I forgot to comment this after I read it and just realized it. This was the first manga series that I've read and still remains at the top of my favorites list. I don't consider it unoriginal or anything because of the time period that it was written in. I absolutely love how this manga captured all of the emotions of the characters and had such a powerful effect on me as well. Maybe because it was my first time reading a manga, but I am so glad that I started off with this one. It's not as crazy and fast-pace like the more modern manga, but it more realistic. It captures moments of everyday life that nearly everyone goes through and that's what I love about it. People can easily relate to it. The illustrations, despite not being as glamorous as other manga, is beautiful in it's simplicity. There's a soft feel to it all. Overall, I found this manga captivating and the story beautifully told. I don't want to spill any details for those who have not come across it so I'll end it here. Hana Kimi will remain one of my all-time favorites.

I usually don't comment but seeing how a few of you say that you've seen it done before, nothing new, comedy not too funny, etc. I have to say that this was one of the first mangas that was done this way... I don't know if you realized but this started in 1996 and for the past however many years, there are a lot of mangas that start to be the same as Hana Kimi.
For the people that read this since the beginning, they think it's original and funny and cute. I guess the people that started to read this after hearing all the "rave" about it might not feel the same considering they probably read the newer mangas with the same elements and don't find Hana Kimi's appeals.
I followed this since it was scanlated so that's just my opinion. Well aniwhos, just read it and have fun! That's what mangas are for~ if you have to think to hard and like don't have fun then why read? It's suppose to be an enjoyable hobby (:

This series was good. It made me laugh on several occasions, and it never once bored me to tears.

I'm an avid horror, seinen, and sci-fi series fan; so sometimes I read simple stuff to kind of pull me out of my demented train of thought. Just seeing these kids interact with each other everday under normal (and not so normal) circumstances was a breath of fresh air.

I recommend giving it a try.

To be fair I don't really like the genre but I've read much better stuff before. It's all been done before and adds nothing new. The story is incredible slow paced with an unimpressive ending. I found myself genuinely bored as all I was reading was a bunch of people enjoying school life with little to no conflict or anything. The comedy was cliche, the characters were dull. I kept on thinking it'll get better since its rated so high but I can't recommend this to anyone except twelve year old school girls.
