From Nagareboshi Manga:

Hikage is a reclusive 8th grader who no one seems to notice. She finds comfort in her blog, and the people who comment on it. Everything changes one day when two cute boys notice her. These boys are the most popular kids in the entire school. When one of them tells her something that she's always wanted to hear, she might not be as invisible as she thought...

Wow, the beginning was such a bummer that I got teary eyed.

Typical love triangle shoujo manga, one girl and two best guy friends, which the mangaka pulled off pretty well (without including chp17 and 18, which in my opinion, the mangaka just undermined the strength of the friendship between Hinata and Teru)

While this story is a bit of an exaggeration, the concepts and feelings are universal and I can relate to Hiwatari and Teru's loneliness.

What I didn't like was near the ending, seriously don't read chp 17 because the author adds an annoying twist to the situation, but really, nothing happens. If you read up to the end of chp 16, you'll know what I mean.

I'm just thankful that it was a short series. Oh, I really liked the extras.

The story is really good though some may find it cliché or whatever. I really like Koko ni Iru yo!. The story and characters are very... Refreshing. Once you know more about Sumino's personality, you get to love her as if she were your little sister; as if you would want to protect her too. And I don't really think Sumino is weak. She's strong, that's why she overcame obstacles. No one that only read chapter one and decide to stop reading has a right to bash Sumino chan because there's more to her than meets the eye or in this case the first chapter. No person should bash manga characters when all they have read is one or two chapters only. That is my honest opinion so don't hate me either. Yes, It was sad, but it was a good feeling of sadness. This manga will be one of those (if you read and finish it) that you will never-ever forget; really memorable. It has the right mix of drama and comedy(at times). Wonderful characters, wonderful plot, wonderful dialogues. Wonderful Manga.

Not only is the art gorgeous, but the story sends a warming message to readers. The main characters are all relatable, and the entire manga as a whole is just adorable. It has a deeper meaning that takes you along with Hikage as you watch her blossom into the person she wants to be. It softly shows you life's harder moments, and how being with others can get you through them. I have read many shoujo manga that have no plot and are comprised of one girl who has multiple guys falling for her. However, this manga goes much, much deeper and explores life and the very core of relationships. It will make you laugh and tug at your heartstrings at the same time. This is one manga that is an absolute MUST READ for its well-rounded excellence.

This is definitely a great manga. It's so adorable and fulfilling. Every time a character says something it pulls your emotional string so. Especially the main character, if you've ever been ignored you can really relate to her. And please read until chapter 7-8 before considering to drop it. That's when the main character really get's her main development.
Anyway, I really recommend this manga to shoujo lovers, and everyone alike.

Like you've all been saying, Sumino is a wuss. Yes, it's true. But she's giving it her all and is improving. And I bet your all waiting to see her final development just as I have been. Isn't that what keeps this story interesting? As for the guys, they're both okay but if I had to choose it'd definitely be Teru. Don't get me wrong, Hinata is damn well fine but in my opinion since Teru has a bit of a personality going I think he could help Sumino grow and laugh more than Hinata ever could. Yes, she's a wuss. But no, she's not bore.

I really liked this manga. It's a very cute, original story. Even if it DOES overexaggerate a bit, it's a manga. And since when in manga (shoujo in particular) have things ever NEVER been overexaggerated. Many people can also easily relate to the heroine, so they will probably find the story a bit more real. Personally, I enjoy it very much, and I've read thousands of mangas and oneshots of all genres. I just finished chapter two, and now I'm anxiously awaiting chapter 3 to be released. ^-^

The artwork is cute, not really my type though.. I started reading it based on curiosity, and....
only one chapter (the 1st chapter) and i could tell what will happen to the rest of the story.
Overall, nothing stand out of this manga. But i guess the preteenagers would like it.

I was a little excited when I started the manga, because it seemed like it had some potential.
But the "twists" and "surprises" are pretty obvious, and you can't even call it a love triangle, really, because you know immediately who she will end up with.
I wasn't too fond of the main character either, but she's a pretty typical shoujo girl, if not a bit more...needy.
Altogether, a completely average shoujo with an average plot line and ending. Good for a quick read if you want to just read something cliched and fluffy.

If you want something with substance and good characters, I suggest looking elsewhere.
