For some odd reason I just couldn't make it past ch. 4; usually most series start off strong, engrossing the reader but this one just felt empty. Additionally, with so many characters introduced so quickly with all of them having generic personalities it gets hard to figure out who is who. (I mean, introducing 8 characters for each of the 4 chapters is kinda pushing it.)

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.
Just what I like...
Like some people have already stated, Hatsukoi Limited share some distinctive traits with Salad Days. At this point, I feel that it is too early to tell exactly what the manga is going develop into but I'm currently enjoying it.
I was dissapointed in school rumble but really like this. So forget the comment the guy below me wrote. This story is not about getting into a relationship or anything. It's a story about their first love, so you can expect that no relationship are progressed. If you like salad days, then you'll like this.

This one really starts to look like School Rumble... and that means it will drag with a set of pointless relationships with no progress for several chapters/volumes...
If you were dissapointed with School Rumble then you can really look for another better series.
Not so good
I was mildly interested after the first chapter, but the subsequent chapters were all disappointing. After Ayumi's story, which ended fairly ironically, the manga jumps from one uninspired perverted or half-witted male character after another, with the occasional shallow female character thrown in - for example, the chapter starring the girl with a brother complex
Ooo, now I get it.
Somehow, I slowly realized that Kawashita Mizuki-sensei want to make Hatsukoi Limited like School Rumble. All the characters are involved in triangle love. Good idea, but I don't hope its end suck like Ichigo 100%
so far, it just seems like every chapter or two are about a new character being introduced. they all link to each other in some way. there isn't much to the plot as a whole right now, but im liking it.
now THIS is my cup of coffee
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.
Better than Ichigo 100%
When I first saw this series I was expecting a generic harem series like Ichigo 100% but instead the story switches from character to character and back again through out the series making it feel fresh.
