Too many characters and crisscrossing in relationships. The male characters aren't very charming either. I mean, if they don't look good at least make it up in personality or something. (Most of the male characters fail both.)

Anyway, I guess I had too-high expectations after reading Ichigo 100%. But the art, as always, is beautiful.

IT was ok, like i think there were to many main characters i think, im glad for the outcome of the kappa dude. all and all it was ok. i wouldnt rush to read it if i was you but its deffinately better than some shounen manga ive read i give it a 6.5, it would of gotten higher if there were less main characters

the description is a bit wrong tho, she does get confessed by a big scary dude but she isnt intrigued at all.

It's okay certainly readable but like previous comments the mangaka tries to introduce too many characters too fast. I had a hard time keeping track of who had a crush on who etc. Ichigo 100% was better but this is still alright.

I like it, except for one major complaint. I have a hell of a time telling the difference between the guys in the series. Many of them look so similar that I get them mixed up easily.

Okay, the main reason why I like Hatsukoi Limited is not because of the plot or characters, but the about of love interests it had going. The main characters all had love interests and tied with one another somehow - a lot of unrequited love going. Main con this manga has is that it might be confusing to those who 'want' to try reading it. I introduced it to my sister, but she said it was very confusing and didn't know/remembered who liked who.

this is about several middle and high school students and their first love.

the story is light, funny and heart soothing.
probably will make you remember your high school memories.

you'll find some character's personalities that probably will make you remember some of your friends in highschool too.. the funny buddy who loves to talk perverted things, the overly serious buddy, big scary guy, cute girls who love to do silly things, beautiful almost perfect girl whom all your friends adore...etc
you'll feel connected with the characters and the situations.

i have watched the anime too, and it feels even more fun to see the characters animated.
too bad they didn't include chapter 31 of the manga into anime. you can see the "cute" and "shy" side of Misaki in that chapter.
that's one of the best chapter of this manga IMO.

and as usual, nice beautiful art by Kawashita Mizuki-sensei!
too bad this manga only lasted 4 volumes. maybe it got axed by Shueisha.

but even though it's short, the ending really satisfied me.
(her most popular work, ICHIGO 100% left me unsatisfied with its ending.)

I really recommend you to read this manga!

As alwys wreat girl drawing, excelent fan service.

This surely has a better story than ichigo 100%, great thing that the story dosent focus on a single boy with lots of girls, but a lots of boys with a lots of girls with lots of point of views girls-boys viceversa mixed up in relations pointing every where XD.

If u liked ichigo 100% (i did not like the ending ¬¬) u surerly will like this story and speciallly the girls *¬*

Yes the story dosent gives a great ending to some relaitons but is better than a long story with nothing to tell, i like it how it is short and joucy stories like this ones

Lots of fun parts,

The comedy here sucks pretty bad, not fun at all. The romance is not really that impressive and it's annoying like hell that all arcs are spread over 32 chapters and not together. The art is average like the whole manga. If you are into romance
and there is no other manga you want to read you can take a look.

It was interesting to have a huge variety of characters but in the end it was too short to really satisfy compared to his previous work. If it was MUCH longer that 32 chapters it could have been good.

Ever read Salad Days by Inokuma Shinobu?

HL is somewhat similar to it; except Salad Days is more "one-shot"y, and provides a conclusionary end per arc.

Now, this here Hatsukoi Limited is NOT what you'd really call a collection of one-shots, as you don't get a conclusive ending per chapter; in fact, in later chapters, it becomes apparent that HL is definitely a series, where there is progression in each existing relationship (although, so far, some relationships have yet to progress).

However, it shares a similar trait with Salad Days: romance of different sorts in a single environment. In fact, Kawashita Mizuki takes a step further by making every featured character connected with each other in one way or another, add the fact that love triangles root from this so called connection.

This is a fresh choice for romance-seekers out there. Me? I'll give this a ten since THIS IS my cup of coffee.
