Yoshioka Futaba has a few reasons why she wants to "reset" her image and life as a new high-school student. Because she's cute and had a demure personality she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a series of misunderstandings and mishaps, she couldn't get her feeling across to the one boy she has always liked, Tanaka Kou.

Now in high school, she is determined to be as unladylike as possible so that her friends won't be jealous of her. While living her life this way contentedly, she meets Tanaka-kun again, but he now goes under the name of Mabuchi Kou. He tells her that he felt the same way as she did when they were younger, but that they cannot go back. Will Futaba be able to continue her love that never even started from three years ago?

Include in this manga are the following stories:

V.8 - Sono Omokage o Shitteru

It started with SUCH potential!

It started with SUCH potential! I'm sure all the readers would agree that we got hooked to it because of its promising start. But sadly, as the story is progressing now, it leaves much to be desired. The story telling has gotten much worse, the plot is sooo incredibly cliche now, that it's frustrating to read the latest chapters. Unlike strobe edge, this one seems to have forgotten it's own plotline. I mean, how can anyone mess up a story with such incredible characters? It's like all the initial character development's going to waste.
Ugh, I seriously hope Sakisaka Io gets her sh*t together. This is probably her only 'bad' work.

I really like this series, although I wouldn't call it my favorite. The art is fantastic and the characters are great too, except for Kou. I used to ship Kou and Futaba, but now he's just a jerk. He is very frustrating and honestly, he doesn't deserve Futaba. He's always leaving her hanging or rejecting her when all she does is try to help him. I think she is better off with Touma.

10/10 I absolutely love Sakisaka Io's work, this is one of my fave mangas, The story has a good atmosphere, the heroine isn't the weak type but somehow feminine, The main guy mega-hot ^_^ and there's different variety of character to whom you instantly connect to.

the heroine, futaba, is perfect. she's funny and friendly and still stands up for herself, and isn't the generic girly-girl heroine, something which i can really appreciate. the rest of the characters are all really entertaining too, and i love touma - she met him in a really funny way, and he's adorable and kind to her and really likes her.

but kou is the one who bothers me. i feel like he's using futaba, and it's so frustrating that she puts up with it. i get that she likes him, but in the later chapters he's just a terrible person, in my opinion, who thinks very selfishly and isn't honest with himself or others.

Well, to start this off, I am a huge romanticist who is very open-minded, so I don't know if you want to hear this from me, but...

This manga is absolutely adoring. But frustrating, only because of the main male character, Kou. But if you're a sucker for a love story about a girl who falls for the reserved type of guy and she struggles to be with him, then READ IT. It'll make your heart hurt.

But for the others, I can see it in your perspective, too. It's hair-pulling, because of the repetition of Futaba being rejected in plenty of different ways. I think it'll just about frustrate anyone who reads, so all who will read have been warned. I personally still love he story even if it has been going downhill. The author has incorporated some sweet moments in the first few chapters, and absolutely heartbreaking ones throughout.

So, give this story a chance and enjoy!

I honestly don't know why, but once a started reading the chapter after chapter 20, I got seriously pissed at Kou. I REALLY liked this manga at first but now its making me mad! -.-
She (the female lead) tries her hardest to help him out but instead he doesn't do much for her...thats what i am seeing.

I rated it like that 'cause this manga is getting boring (--_____--) It was really interesting at first though. I read it for two days (up to ch 21), but when I read the rest, my opinion regarding this changed. It's like my typical manga where there will be love triangles or the like and the heroine having bad times because of his hero. And serously, that Narumi friend's character is totally annoying. She's like an attention-seeker―spreading the fact that your parents are divorced so that people will feel sorry for you. =w= ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

siggghhh... As they say, not everything goes the way you planned. The one thing I hope for this manga is that it should end its drama scenes cause its getting annoying and boring =P That's just my opinion, 'kay?

btw, i'm not gonna update this comment of mine unless the story interest me again >__<

I like this series. Not my most favorite but it's interesting to read. I find Kou to be indecisive and for once, I actually do not like the main hero very much. Like, he's just there for the storywise.I'm actually rooting for Kikuchi and Futaba! He should get a chance since he's such a sweetie :3

After reading chapter 22 >.>; I've come to really dislike Kou. Who knows what he's thinking but his actions, oh wow, you make mad. I don't know how the story will progress from there but I'm expecting it to be going downhill. Gonna be prepared for some frustration and rage!

I changed from 10 to 6 after reading Ch. 22-23.. This is going downhill. Disappointing. Irritating. And the plot's geting overrated as well.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Why must that certain character be treated/described way more deeper and special? Why must the heroine be treated so badly when she did nothing but to help the hero? I don't get it. I really loved the story until the guy turns into a jerk in his maximum level
The mangaka seemed to be doing a lot of twists just so series dragged onto however long she wanted it to be which is annoying. I'm still giving it another shot though, then think through if I should drop it completely or not.

It was absolutely a treat until chapter 20. Right now, it's taken a melodramatic turn, and not a very convincing one. I'll update my opinion on this as the series goes on. Right now, I don't like the direction it's heading.
