Description
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!?

In 2005 Bokura ga Ita won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo.

Bokura ga Ita is a slow-paced shoujo manga that follows the story of a shy and reserved schoolgirl named Nana and her first love, the bright and outgoing Yano. Beginning as friends, Nana and Yano eventually find themselves in a relationship. Though the audience wishes the best for them both, it is almost impossible from the very beginning.
Regardless of the fact that this series was on hiatus for quite some time, the story itself is more frustrating than the wait. Nana and Yano are adolescents; ignorant, clumsy and immature. For those of you who are older than 16, the clumsiness and carelessness of the two protagonists will often pain you. Firstly because it is reminiscent of your own adolescent experiences and secondly, it will pain you because you know better and reading about it is like stabbing yourself in the eye.
Bokura ga Ita's biggest downfall lies in its storyline. The development of the characters, their emotional reactions and their adolescent logic all create a strong base for the series. However, the mangaka wastes all of her hard work on ridiculous, lengthy storylines and hateful side characters.
I have to admit that I rarely read Shoujo manga for the very reasons why I can't fully enjoy this series. Why write it in 12+ volumes when you can do a decent story in less than half of that? Bokura ga Ita loses a big chunk of points in my rating simply for selling-out. I'd rather read a short series with integrity than read one of the many series that has been stretched too thin to earn more money.

I absolutely LOVE this manga. It was one of the few that I've actually purchased. The anime is just as great...I just wish that the next volume will be released soon...this waiting game is killing me.

The anime version is ok. Had me hooked. But, currently, I don't recommend reading the manga if you don't want to be disappointed. I currently AM. I sadi currently because it is not yet finished and the author seemed to have "paused" writing the rest of the story and at a bad part at that! I don't like the latest chapter until chapter 52 (which is the current chapter as I was writing this). Believe me, you won't either.

I saw the anime about a year ago I think, and I must say it was amazing. The ending had me crying my eyes out because it was so sad.

What sucks is I'm too lazy to read the rest of the manga =/ But I recommend it 10000%. It's a good plot.

This manga is amazing, especially when you progress further and further into the story. The characters become more meaningful and the plot more heart wrenching. SO SAD!!!!!!!!! Definately a must read.
