Nina's neighbor, Kyousuke, is starting high school while she's still stuck in junior high. Just walking to their nearby schools together isn't enough for her--especially since they keep running into Yuiko: a beautiful, outgoing girl in Kyousuke's grade who also seems to harbor feelings for Nina's next-door neighbor.

LOVED it but I also DREADED reading it

I love this manga! The story was great from the very beginning! I love Nina as a character, who developed and became more emotionally mature over time. I liked Kyou-chan at first but.. ughhh I really started hating/getting irritated at him and Asou... Yeah I know, it did start out as the typical shoujo manga with the childhood friend love interest and some two-faced antagonist but...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
FINALLY, a story that ends up with the second love interest!!! I AM SO HAPPY NINA ENDED UP WITH MIYAKE!!! Although I really loved this story, around chapter 28... I also began to start dreading reading it because I was soo afraid Nina was going to end up staying with Kyou-chan when he was sick and screwing up her relationship with Miyake-kun (which did happen...) BUT luckily, the manga ends with her just staying childhood friends with Kyou-chan and dating Miyake-kun!!!

Kind of wish the manga had a little bit more of their relationship at the end... but I can't be too greedy, since the couple I preferred did end up together!!! bigrazz

Anyways, I recommend people to read Tonari no Atashi! It made me feel happy, angry and made me cry (in sadness and happiness) throughout the whole time I read it! Overall, a very emotional and enjoyable manga!

This manga has the cutest plotline and characters.
In the very beginning, I thought that this manga would be so cliché. The main girl character falls in love with her neighbor but gets rejected. I was like omg then the girl will be determined to win his heart and go through all these hardships and etc and at the end, the guy will realize her feelings and fall in love and yea ..... For that reason, i was planning to drop the manga. I hate such sappy plots
But as a read further on, the plot turns into something that I completely didn't expect
I almost cried my eyes out
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
miyake came and im like OMFG HE'S SO CUTEE. i kinda fell in love with him :3 He was perfect for Nina. You can totally see how they are so similar. They would do anything for their unrequited love. Once they started dating, they were both soo cutee XDXD seeing them blush together was ADORABLE omg i couldn't stop gagging. Their relationship was perfect and tooo CUTE. At that time, I felt rlly depressed cuz i was like 'Kyou and Nina r for sure going to get together cuz Kyou started realizing his feelings and he was going to confess.
that's wat u get Kyou, for being such a jerk, dating this random girl and constantly hurting Nina. You should be forever along ;P
Well I guess the ending was perfect. Not just cuz she kinda fixed her FRIENDSHIP with Kyou, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, SHE GOT TOGETHER WITH MIYAKE

read the manga so that u can read my comment ^
The plot was perfect. Im sure that it you will be satisfied when you finish the manga. The romance was too adorable ^^
One of the best mangas i've ever read wink
+ the drawing is cute :3

when i read the first chapters, i thought that this was going to be another typical shoujo. you know, the cliched girl, with all the drama scenes. but hey, even the most original shoujo have drama.

it turns out that this shoujo took the other path. it didnt turn out the way i was expecting it to. and i am veeeery glad it turned out that way. for a heroine, the girl had very cute reactions, some i found very unique, different from other heroines. well, i dont have much say about character development, more of..... emotional development. the art was okay, better than most. the eyes...well sometimes...they're just indescribable to me.

other than that, the heroine and the plot itself is really realistic. the situations, the turn of events, almost every teenage girl would find the scene quite familiar.

its already completed so don't worry.

I'm glad the mangaka doesn't make her manga 20+ volumes but the ending seems open.I do prefer Miyake-Nina couple though,they're good kids,always consider the other's feeling before their own,despite of being hurt themselves .I would seriously cry my eyes out if they won't end up together T_T
But I have a feeling there'll be a continuation of the manga since Kyou still has a strong feeling for Nina,not to mention the fact they're neighbour,both go to the same school...

Finally, a manga where the girl finally picks the second and more deserving guy! That alone makes me like this manga. On the one hand I feel bad for Kyou, I can see why he was feeling very insecure of Nina's feelings for him as every time he tried to make a move, she pushed away but I don't think that justifies him for jumping into a relationship with another girl while clearly knowing Nina's feelings for him,even if he didn't truly believe them. It was cruel. And now he wants her back? Ha! Miyake is clearly the more deserving of the two. Not only is he terribly adorable but has been in an unrequited love with her for years and despite knowing Nina's feelings for Kyou tries to understand and accept it. When it comes to Nina, he's always been honest with himself whereas Kyou did everything to make sure he wasn't.

The reason I jumped onto this manga? I learn that:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She ends up with someone who ISN'T Kyousuke who is a much much much much better match for her. No pathetic chasing(well, there is chasing but the ending is just so satisfying, you'll pretty much get over it) where the guy *finally* gives in.

Full last-chapter summary here:*big-spoiler*-Nina-ends-up-with...

It's not a freaking masterpiece or anything truly epic but it has, like any good shoujo, its moments that are just worth reading.

This is one of the best shoujo in matter of angst. Love every bit of it and Im so rooting for the other guy, Miyake, which is absolutely adorable and one of the best guys in shoujo EVER. Nothing against Kyosuke, but Miyake FTW.

The artwork is quite simple, but yet still looks cute at times.

However, I don't like how this manga is going.. I just don't like guys like Kyousuke. He's so indecisive. This series is just like Heroine Shikkaku, but Hatori is kind of childish while Nina's quite a crybaby.

UGH. I'm rooting for the other guy in this series, TOO. I just don't get why girls are always running into those troublesome guys. Why can't they see that other guy is really KIND and CARES about them? Loving someone so deeply then just getting hurt. That's just ASDFGHJK. I feel sorry for those guys. Is there any shoujo manga that the main girl realizes that?

Oh well, I guess I'm gonna keep reading this to see how things are going. But I have a strong feeling she's going for her first love..

Gosh.. No, just no.

SHE ENDED UP BEING WITH MIYAKEEEEEEE! I'm gonna faint. Finally, a shoujo manga that the main girl actually chose the second guy <33333333333 Actually, I wanna see them together for a few more chapters. Mhm.

i am the girl who enjoy this exact type of shoujo so i'm really loving it, i may give a try to the other works of this artist.

the point that i didn't like (i gave it a 9 and not a 10) is there is a big cliché that i don't like : young girl fell in love with older close guy friend who could be her brother then we'll discover that old guy has potential secret feelings for sister-like neighbour.

But still i like the art, i love that the guy isn't a handsome 2 meter tall playboy guy but the regular nice guy.
I like the setting also : there is no rich meanie egoist rival but only this lonely girl. I really want to see how this will end.
