From Hanashi:

The start of high school life. To the girls, that also meant the start of their love lives. For brand new first year student, Takahashi Nanami (Nana for short), it was no different... She happens to end up in the same class as the incredibly popular Yano Motoharu, who rumors say that two thirds of all the girls are guaranteed to fall in love with. But will that hold true for Nana, who says that if she had to choose between like or dislike, she'd say she dislikes him!?

Note: Won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo in 2005.

Pissing me off

I'm so sorry but lately I can't stand this manga. I keep reading it because i want to know how it ends for de couple, but it is unbearable to me to wait one or two months to read the next chapter and get bored to death while reading it. All they do is think and doubt, think and doubt, no action at all.

I use to love this manga but... seriusly it makes me feel kind of angry right now. It's a shame.

The art is beautiful, the romance is sweet.... everything is great.
Until the author started pushing everything off a cliff into a depressing pit of the manhwa cynical orange.
Are you that desperate to make your manga fit in the tragedy category? At first it was a breezy highschool romance/drama manga and now its TRAGIC depressing aaaaaaggghhhh. Also, it is not a good idea to make your readers hate your characters.

i freaking loved this manga. it's my 2nd favorite shoujo manga. i really like nanami. she's really innocent, she's not really dumb. but i love her. i LOVED yano. expectations for a guy just got higher. i like how childish he is, i like his smile, i like how sometimes he seems mature, i like how he's popular, i like how he's serious in relationships, i love everything about him. though it's not too original how there's another guy who likes the main girl character, well, for me, there always has to be one. or else, how is it going to be interesting?

sadly, (seriously, really, annoyingly) sadly, the manga stopped in the middle somewhere, so i couldn't read anymore. that's probably the reason why it's my 2nd favorite manga. i don't really skip because, i cant really explain it well. i can't keep going on with the story if i'm missing out on something. something important might've happened. there must'v been a part where i could've gotten my heart beating really fast.

i seriously wish someone would just fix that part -_-. if only.

I love and Hate this manga. I love it because of the story, the plot. It's pretty realistic but I hate it because the characters are so frustrating!! Well, only a couple of them are. So far, it's been good but I saw that this manga goes to 15+ and that's making me think that the story will drag on? I won't be too sure until I read it to the end. I'm only at volume 8 at the moment. I guess we'll see :]

I love this manga- it is very painful and heartbreaking, but very deep. I find it very realistic as well. I definitely identify with they main character. My first boyfriend has still been the only one I have ever truly loved. It has been almost 4 years, and I still dream about him every night and think about him at least once every day. When I close my eyes, I really do see his face as it was back in high school, when we were carefree and sat and talked in the grass during autumn.... This manga really identifies with the strange and somewhat hopeless feelings one gets when they have only had one true love that ended badly- sometimes you can't help hanging on even if the relationship has ended long ago and may never recontinue. It just really hits home and really makes those hard to define feelings reveal themselves.

This is manga has an extremely dramatic plot. At first I enjoyed the story but as it progressed I lost interest and eventually became frustrated at the actions of the characters and the lack of character development. While I won't say the story is bad I will say that those who don't prefer dramatic mangas should avoid this one.

It was so good at the beginning! I really liked the story and the characters. But then, after some time, it just got boring. I began to hate Takahashi because she worried over every little thing. Ok, this way the story became more realistic, but somewhere along the line the side characters began to annoy me. Why couldn't the mangaka focus less on the side characters? Even though I complained this much it's not really that bad. But still it was so much better at the beginning...

Heart wrenching

I don't know whether I should regret reading it or not. Around 4 years ago, I decided to try this manga but I never made it pass chapter 5 cause I never really like Yano in the beginning. After that, I gave it another try (around 2 years ago) but once again, I didn't make it past chapter 5. Just 2 days ago, I decided to give it another try. I love it until around chapter 40.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I really dislike the fact that around chapter 40, another girl is setting her eyes on Yano and not to mention the long distance and somewhat non existence relationship between Yano and Nanami, it was really heart wrecking to see their amazing high school relationship just turned so bitter in some ways. But I love the fact that Nanami and Yano chose to treasure their memories. I really admire Nanami for loving Yano despite Yano not contacting her for around 5 years. It's really sad that they lost 5 years of time. But that is reality. This manga is really heart wrecking cause it is showing you how life is really like. Life won't stop for you, it won't act the way you want it. Life is really unexpected. In the end what I really dislike about this manga is because I really want Yano and Nanami to end up together but I think it'll take a really long time for them to get back together. I will be really sad if they don't end up together since they both are always thinking of each other but Yano won't take action to that because there's just so many problems and obstacles as well as emotions that will prevent that.

This manga made me frustrated and dissatisfy.
I even post my facebook status as:
Hate reading something that makes you want to stop reading it cause it's so depressing and makes you think "what the heck is wrong with this story why can't they get together already?" but then you kept on reading it cause you are curious about it and want to see when they end up together even though you might regret reading it later cause there's a possibility that they might not end up together. D:<
I just simply rant my frustrations on my facebook. This manga made me want to burst out in tears because of the bitter moments in Yano's life. It is just too sad, poor Yano. I really want him to be healed. After reading this manga, the characters really grow onto me. I really want them to be happy. The manga also made me wonder, since I'll be going to university soon (in a few months), about how much I'll change and how much my ideals will change but in the end I thought of "My idea might change somewhat but yet in the end they will all originate from the origin".

overall it's really a good manga... the pace, the characters, the pain n sorrow everyone's bringing depicts realistically. I regret i dropped this series when it was still on early volumes, thought it was another boring shoujo manga. When right now, after some recommendations and willingly at heart to read this series again... i must say that this manga is exceed my expectation.
one complain is about how the girl's clinging for the past so much although it have been 5 years.. when the story was portrayed like that, it diminished the sense of realistic life or actually i just want the girl to move on.

This manga brought me to feel so much pain . it's slow paced but that's what makes it so realistic .
every time i see Yano's expression , my chest feels pain .
i'm hoping for a happy ending , but since this manga says 'tragedy' i'm scared for the ending . but who knows , i mean . Hopefully it doesn't go overboard and make me not want to read it anymore .
