Very cute.
The story is not the best but it's good, the art is realy pretty(shme that the scans are poor..)
a little wierd at times but it has potenial.

I'm on chapter 17, and I can say I really enjoy it so far.
There is even character development with both of the leads.
Some drama, with Sakuya's sweetness^^

for some reasong i keep imagining some characters as some from fruits basket. like chihiro can sometimes be like kyo...ot hatsuharu (epsecially in ch 11 with the random hug xD)

it's a very slow but interesting story. it keeps me in the edge becuase it's so unpredictable. the characters each have a different personality that keeps the whole flow of the story balanced. (sorry if i don't make any sense)

so far, i give it a 10/10

Natsuki Takaya-san is really good in flashback parts..just like in hoshi wa utau,we are now introduced with Chihiro's past and his true love..
which somehow the unrequited love will finally surface its lonely head.i just hope it's a happy ending in the end.

Interesting. Very bittersweet. Kyo anyone? Definitely Chihiro. (I'm not complaining there!) It's not just some characters, a lot of the characters resemble Furuba. But she doesn't mind drawing characters that look alike, I think one time she said she liked it? I'm not sure, it was in one of the Furuba novels. She got really sad when someone said she drew her characters like someone else had. But anyway...A story about "unrequited love"? That's a bit discouraging.....after reading Chapter 10, I don't really know what to think. Chihiro is very peculiar. The dialogue is very thick. The drawings are amazing. <3

Even though it's just a few chapters in, Hoshi no Utau is a moving story. Chihiro and Kanade are probably the most interesting and original character in the series while unfortunately, the main girl, Sakuya ressembles Tohru far too much and her best friend, Hijiri ressembles a combination of Hanajima and Uotani so that's the only down-side. But the art and story-telling redeems these faults by a lot~ It is by far on a great start.

I've read 8 chapters of this manga,uhm...well,it's pretty good.I think Hoshi wa utau is a little bit wierd,a little slow,little bit complex mix sad.And the male main character-Chihiro is very mysterious (do you guys think he looks like Hatori kun in FB?),the female main character,she very strong,very sweet with everyone...just like Tohru.( Takaya Natsuki's female character all very strong ^^ i like them).I hope on the next chapter,the story will better and better ^^

I've read a couple of chapters and its pretty interesting. Sakuya is cute and her friends are a little weird but still lovable. And I'm not gonna judge Chihiro yet because he is still very mysterious (I guess that is considered judging >.<). This story has great potential. I think it will be good too. ^_^

I read two chapters of this manga and found it pretty interesting enough to keep reading. I like all the characters so far and that brings me to like a series as one of my top favorites sooner or later. Can't help thinking of Fruits Basket with the art (some characters) and dialogue. I'm very curious to find out more of Chihiro.

I enjoy Fruits Basket and I think I'll enjoy this series even more. ^^

the summary made me think that this manga would be a good one, until i read the first few pages of chapter 1 and thougth that i was werid. but by the time i finished the first chapter, it was ok maybe??

i guess i would probally like this story better if the main character (the girl, but i don't remember wat her name was =P ) had longer hair like Torhu from fruits basket xD
