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...

Personally, this series' enjoyment factor about it for me, is the fact that it is actually very realistic. And i love the messages that its got in it as well, for example how it can take only one person, or even a single act, to help someone and make them happy.

For all those who deem this unrealistic with no meaning or any of those things, i suggest a heavy dose of 'get-out-of-your-house-and-experience-the-real-world' -.-'

The story seemed interesting, and it had potential to be good and while it didn’t fall flat and wasn’t a terrible story neither was it an exceptionally good one. It was just there, a mediocre manga that depending on your taste in manga you will either like or dislike. I myself enjoyed the manga even though I disliked some parts of it.

Plot- Not exceptionally unique, a girl trying to find the place where she belongs isn’t all that out of the ordinary in shoujo manga. The uniqueness of the plot was helped along with the addition of Hikage’s blog and the few twists that came from that.
The One Shot at the end was separate from the main plot but had to do with the characters, and I must say it was quite cute and I enjoyed reading it.

Characters- I liked and disliked the characters at the same time. Hikage is shy and secluded but she does want to change and she is determined to change and become a brighter person. Her determination is admirable but sometimes she felt a bit to… mopey and with low self esteem and a bit boring for the main character of the manga. As for the two main guy’s, Hinata and Teru, they both were kind and helpful to Hikage and seemed like nice people but sometimes they were to self centered and shallow. So at times I enjoyed the characters and at other times I didn’t like them all that much.

Art- It was very nice artwork, nothing lacking here.

Other- At times I got a bit bored with the manga, it seemed to take a bit longer than needed and dragged on a few times. Also nearer to the end a few events were a bit… unrealistic, and while that’s to be expected in manga for this manga it was a bit strange since everything else was so very realistic and then at the end there were a few excessive decisions and actions that threw everything off balance. So while I enjoyed the story I also felt it was just… there and it didn’t stand out to me compared to other manga. I wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend this but if you are interested and have time to read the story I would recommend you read it.

6/10 –Liked it

This is pretty good. Short and sweet, with gorgeous art.

I'm glad this was only 5 volumes, any longer and it would've degenerated in to a dramatic emo-fest love triangle. It's perfect though for 5 volumes.

Nicely pulled off and resolved. I think I'll be buying the Del Ray editions when they come out too.

One thing for sure, the artwork is so good, and the characters are really cute! I really like how the mangaka came about this series, I like how things are developing in this manga! 10/10 I can't wait for the next release! Sumiko and Hinata all the way!

Ridiculous shoujo

Waste of paper, waste of ink, waste of time. Need I say more? One of the worst shoujo I've ever read. It would've helped if the girl wasn't so damn wimpy and stuck up for herself at least once. Every time I read this manga I always find myself questioning the heroine's humanity: does she even have a shred of pride on her?
Also: How the hell can she not be noticed? Are her classmates blind/retarded?

Not only does this manga have a crappy protagonist but the plot also sucks. I mean, it was extremely easy to predict what was going to happen next, making the drama horribly bland and the story miserably cliche. In fact, saying that the manga is boring and cliche is quite an understatement.

All in all, this manga was a huge disappointment and I regret ever picking it up. Read it if you want to be bored to death.

As I read this story again today, it seems a bit silly.

However, back in middle school, I had become completely overwhelmed by shyness and loneliness.
I came across this manga and began reading it, understanding all of Hikage's actions. I had no true friends in real life at the time, so knowing Hikage was a character I could relate to somehow helped me tremendously and I was able to break out of my shell.
