Description
[From ShoujoMagic]:

Ever since he was small, all the girls in the neighborhood have fawned over Tsutomu Yamaguchi, whose name came from a song and whose adorable face closely resembles the monkey character Monchichi's. Even back then, it was enough to make his friend and neighbor Mikako sick. Now that he's a little more grown, Tsutomu looks like the lead vocalist of Manbou, Ken Nakagawa (Midori friend/boyfriend from Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai; we meet main characters from Tenshi on market/fest), and that makes him even more popular with the ladies. But Mikako--now a trendy teen with modern sensibilities--couldn't care less. Or could she...? Gokinjo Monogatari is a sharp-witted and stylish slice-of-life story!

Continuation (after years) in Paradise Kiss.

i love the art, it's very charming and unique, the fact that no one else draws the same makes it more fun like ouran high school host club, or even lovely complex!

Any shoujo manga connoisseur would give this two thumbs up! The mangaka put a lot of effort into costume design for every character. Styles run the gamut, from loli to punk, and each of them is well executed. You'd probably take a second glance at some of the clothes in here. Story-wise... it's engaging, and it's sure to draw you in. biggrin

It's a so good manga! The art is... Yazawa-like. The story is funny, sad, romantic, serious, realistic etc. I'm a fan of MIKAKO and TSUTOMU! (And Noriji, of course!) I like all characters! Really, ALL!

it's one of the rare, best of the best reads you can ever find out there..for a manga series almost 11 years old, the art is supreme and I got blown away. The plot may come off draggy at first, but it gets better as it gets on. Packed with the right amount of everything; humour, romance and drama, what more could you ask for?
The characters are lovable and unforgettable too..I yearn for more! The cover art is really disastrous though, please don't judge from it. I guess the story fits perfectly with Mikako's little sister following her roots of design; growing up to become part of the fashion design team in Parakiss..with a fraction of her love life in there..!

Yeah, it's even better than ParaKiss.
The story is lovely, the character are so *real*, I really loved all of them and I felt like crying a lot of times.
10/10, one of my favourites mangas.

I thought this would be worse then Paradise kiss, cause ParaKiss was very good not to and its also newer, but when I read this I found out that this is way better. This is deffinitly a good read.
