From Viz:

When Haruna Nagashima was in junior high her life consisted of playing softball and reading comics. But now that she's going to high school, Haruna decides to put all of her energy towards getting a boyfriend and having the high school romance of a lifetime. To help in her quest, she enlists cute upperclassman Yoh Komiyama to coach her as she eschews her jock tendencies and turns herself into the kind of girl who can catch a guy. Yoh agrees, with one catch: Haruna had better not fall for him!

Volumes 14 and 15 are unscanlated.

Realistic Enough to be Relatable

But not so much that it's boring. The characters are sweet, flawed, and truly care for each other. Haruna and Yoh make a great couple. The compliment each other really well, and the 'will they/wont they' doesn't go on too long. Great read, perfect length, and a great slice of life romance.

My first shoujo

this was my first shoujo years back and I was hesitant to read it again but once I started i couldn't stop and ended up reading all of it in one sitting it will always be one of my favorites and in another 1-2 years I look forward to reading it a again. it introduced me to shoujo and now i am obsessed unfortunately I hold all other shoujo to this standard so I stick with very few. the blessing and curse of koukou debut is that you'll fall in love with shoujo but rarely be satisfied with any other.

I had doubts when I first researched about the manga. My only reason for reading this was out of boredom. I was a bit unsettled because of the plot. I mean why is she so crazy to find love? I don't like girls chasing after guys so I was really hesitant to read this. However, I loved every chapter of it. Haruna is one of those heart-warming heroine. The love between her and Yoh is solid. Nothing can break them apart. I remember

crying because of how she felt when she found out about Fuma and Asami.
Yoh's personality is also something to look forward to. All in all, you MUST read this one. Don't judge it until you've read it. wink

I was a little worried that a re-read years after starting the series, would not bring the same feeling i experienced then. Shouldn't have been worried, because either though this is a shoujo story, it's more slice of life. Also the romance was solid throughout, even when there were misunderstandings, it was not dragged out.

This was the first manga that i read and i think it was a good one to start with. This manga started my obsession with manga: it ruined my life biggrin It is SO funny. Pluss the characters were lovable. Yoh is so cool and is actually nice after the first few chapters. Haruna is so nieve and sometimes just plain dumb that she makes me laugh. I really like their friends too. This is a fun and light read, deffinatly a must read if you just want a good laugh.

Everyone was crazy. Like, their perceptions of reality were warped and no one seemed to notice. Most of them need professional help. That Asami girl has some major issues, as does the main guy.

I couldn't get into it because I was so unnerved by it. And no one really caught my interest.

I did love how they drew the main guy with sort of bags under his eyes. For ONCE the guy didn't look perfect and I loved it! Now if we can only get a main girl like that...

It's not bad. It wasn't my thing is all. I didn't feel any character chemistry at all.

Awesome. Fantastic! BEAUTIFUL!
XD fancy words.
It's amazing! The main lead is FRICKING AWESOME. She's strong, and there's no way anyone could get tired reading about her. C: I've just re-read the series for a 3rd time. I also love how this series is focused on the couples love, and not just the normal "oh-this-serie-ends-once-they're-together" kind of thing. C: It's just so awesome!

You just have to read it, because there's no way you could dislike it. :]

ACK! I had to add:

ITS HILARIOUS. My parents were giving me weird looks when I was cracking up by myself on the computer. smile It's overall one of my favorite reads, and it made me so happy reading it *u*!

* AWESOME PLOT LINE (it is funny, touching, and so...YAY! )

First of all, the story is really unique as you can see in the description but i never thought it would be that good! As the story progresses, you really start to become attached to both characters as well as the plot. It wasn't cliche at all (well cuz of Yoh) and it wasn't overly-romantic to the point where you roll your eyes and think "what a typical shoujo." This manga was different in many ways. Haruna is really a tough girl and she's so positive about everything. I think the mangaka did a great job with creating their personalities (Haruna and Yoh). It was an awesome manga with amazing art and it was definitely worth reading.
I'm giving it a 9.5 because I have one problem ...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I wasn't really fond of the ending. It was too typical for such a unique manga and I feel that the ending lacked that big-aww i was expecting. I hate it when the guy has to leave and then the whole [one year later] thing pops up.

But all in all, It was hilarious, heart warming and captivating.
No regrets at all.
