Reality isn't a shoujo manga, and Miku Ikenouchi's friends know that perfectly well. But then again, they are not Miku-chan. The reason for this is that Miku-chan has a boyfriend, a third year, and is content with what she has. But then a chain of events occur which leaves Miku-chan with a rival (for cuteness), her father quitting his job... and a new roommate?

I HATE MIKU!!!! But...

..overall I quite like this manga. I hate Miku because she is the type of girl that I hate the most in the real life, lusting for another girl's man. Gosh, just remember your place okay? I know, that she's being honest to her true feelings, but there is some line to draw. Having said that, I like this typical love triangle manga, plus not much tears a la Parfait Tic. Miku is actually a fine heroine except (minor spoiler's ahead) for her feelings towards another girl's boyfriend. And she's not as annoying as Miaka from FY. I don't know how this will end, but I am definitely not rooting for Miku and Shouhei! >.<

It's fine. It's just that I find it so irritating that Miyu ditched her boyfriend so as to confess to that guy who has a girlfriend, already. Her ex seems okay and more mature.

not finished reading but I kind of feel bad for Miku's ex. And Miku for some reason doesn't annoy me, even though she IS technically the jealous and cry over boys type that I don't like.

Oh well, this is not really bad, but... the storyline is so typical, it's a bit boring and the art isn't that great. The feelings might be a bit more realistic than in other shoujo manga, but it's not quite enough to keep me interested. I think I'll keep on trying for a few more chapters, but without any major change, I'm gonna drop this one.

Sprout is a wonderful romantic comedy! It takes a different take on the typical shoujo manga, and has a truly great sense of humor. It also makes the romance slightly mysterious, as it doesn't make couples or crushes stupidly obvious/corny. I can't wait for more chapters to be released; I recommend it whole-heartedly to manga-readers who like a good, clever, and hilarious romantic comedy!

I think i like this manga because it started differently. Not a typical shoujo where a girl likes a boy and confesses in the middle. The beginning that miku is going out w/ kataoka, the boy she likes going out w/ miyu is somewhat complicated. The boarders are also funny. I really look forward to what's going to happen
if miku would end up confessing to narahashi. or will still end up w/ kataoka. I'm only in volume 2 and i can't wait for the next volume. I'm depending w/ OCHIBICHAN..!!

This manga really does portray a more realistic 'teenager' kind of life when it comes to romance... The jealousy, the pain, the betrayal.. the hatred.. pretty typical.
The only problem i have with this manga is i really dont like Miku [ the female lead ]
I really REALLY hate her character. Im not at all with girls who cry over other boys.. who fall in love with other guys when they ALREADY have boyfriends.
I really don't like the fact that she's easily jealous. Girls like that are just
easy chicks. =_=
Overall, i really like the story, just hate her character and hopefully
it develops and matures to where she isnt such a jealous cry baby.
