Best Shoujo Comedy - WHY DOESN'T IT HAVE AN ANIME YET??

As many have said, the characters here are refreshingly entertaining. The rich guy and poor girl trope are used and used extremely well. What makes this so enjoyable is, of course, the banter between Hana and Takane. Hana is definitely not your average meek shoujo girl, whatever you throw at her she will hit back at you tenfold. Takane's extravagance is hilarious, especially paired with Hana's nonchalant reaction. This quirky relationship does their you vs me for quite a while, but there is development.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In volume 6, Takane's grandfather decides to give his grandson a serious dose of reality; all of Takane's bank accounts are frozen, his car, his apartment, all the luxuries he prides himself on. Here onwards, Takane sees a new value in his relationship with Hana as he understands that there is value in himself beyond his material possessions. Meanwhile, Hana also reluctantly admits to herself that she also values her relationship with Takane as more than just a fun pastime - but ofc Hana hates admitting this 'loss' so she hides it.
These budding feelings are given a bigger kick by the chairman, who decides to move the Nonomura family and Takane into one big house (volume 9). More hilarity ensues and Hana is consistent to her character - not shying away when she accidentally walked into the hallway with only a towel to be seen by none other than Takane (he became the blushing maiden instead haha).
Volume 10 sees more pressure on their feelings for each other, as a misunderstanding with Okamon leads to Takane temporarily calling off their arrangement, seriously upsetting Hana and leading to Takane reuniting and apologising to her in the middle of the rain - the most typical shoujo we got so far, but still quite in character.

Volume 11 was a truckload of drama, and FINALLY led to one confession of feelings. After a kidnapping incident, and a near societal humiliation situation, Takane too, admits his feelings. I really liked this volume in particular because we saw so much of Takane's serious side.

Of course, this is Takane and Hana, so just admitting feelings for each other won't end the story. The banter continues, and so does the manga.

This story really gets better further it goes so I'm looking forward to supporting it till the end.

Update: read the ending and oh my it is such a perfectly in-character ending for both of them. Those who worry about the age gap can be assured that this issue has not been brushed away, Takane is always aware of the sensitivity, and the most serious they get in-story is a kiss (which they already did in chapter 1 anyway)

Subversive, witty, refreshing, cute

It's been a while I liked a shoujo this much. The tropes are completely subverted, the manga has genuine witty conversations, the characters are refreshing, and I was cheering for the male lead and female lead already in the first chapter. Because the tropes are subverted, the female lead is actually the one in control in this story, and the male lead is just wonderful, really one in a kind character. Their interactions were a joy to read.

There is an age gap, and it's not small. I usually don't like stories like this because they make me feel so uncomfortable, but Takane to Hana is just different. The age gap is not hidden, but it starts because of the female lead and her family, not him. The male lead doesn't try to molest her, it's actually her who kisses him (and it's really funny). Also, it's actually discussed in an interesting way. After reading chapter 70 (in Spanish translations) I want them to be together but at the same time, I wonder how this is going to work out because he needs a wife but she needs a boyfriend.

The otp here has amazing chemistry. I love them to death. I wanted to see them married with 5 babies within the very first chapter. That's how cute they were with one another. They troll each other all the time, but their compatibility is off the charts. I love how they bicker over trivial things like petty little children, but have each other's backs when facing various obstacles. Hana has got to be the best shoujo lead I've encountered in a looooong time. She is refreshingly witty, snarky, honest, and down-to-earth. She makes you want to root for her. Takane is also quite likable as well. He acts like a domineering villain around Hana, but she has no problem taking him down a peg or five. And he adores her for it. I truly love their relationship. This manga is a definite recommendation from me. Read it. You won't regret it.

Did I mention that this manga is also funny as hell. Like, genuinely funny. I'm having a blast reading it. 😁

Can't get enough of this manga!

I have been followed this manga since begining. I thought this was the manga I searched and still is. Funny, interesting, romantic, light reading, and makes me hooked up.
It seems like a typical shoujo, but what makes it refreshing is the characters. They are so alive, refreshing and interesting. They give another breath to the plot, and they're unforgetable as they are different to each other and has their own development.
The main characters are another story. It's like the roles are switched between male and female main character (hana and takane). If, in usual shoujo, female always get flustered, in this manga it was main male character. The funny thing is, it's older male character which we always depict them as mature and 'wise' who will guide the younger one.
Hana, the main female, has her own will and quite strong with her opinion. She's straighforward with her opinion but not straightforward enough with her feeling. Stubborn and not willingly to lose first.
And then, Takane, he's an adult but he showed his childish side only to Hana. I think it's sweet of him to show his trueself only to Hana. Even though I always wonder, if in the real life, can an adult male lose himself to the younger, much younger than him?
Nevertheless, like I have wrote before, it's light reading so I don't think that much. I enjoy it, and that's enough for me to follow this manga.

Toooo funny

This caught my attention 3 pages in haha, the moment she threw that wig, I was hooked. It's also rare to find a manga with such a lovable tsundere male lead. The hilarious comebacks are great and the art is enjoyable. Although it's not bad, if it continues like this, I may drop it. As mentioned in some of the reviews here, if she continues to treat him's just not realistic.

Not bad so far (14 chapters in). I have high hopes! I hope it ends with them in the future smile I would love to see how she matures.

I'm a huge shoujo manga reader and whenever I come across a long series I usually just read the first-third chapters or at least when I get the situation then I skip over chapters and read the last chapter (since I basically get what's going to happen (shoujo thingy) haha) but this one is an absolute masterpiece the art is gorgeous the characters are lovable especially the girl MC she's totally my favorite she's not like those typical shoujo girls where they just cry and ya know shoujo girls--_-- ..
Well anyways you should totally read it
P.S I rated it 9 because it still ongoing and updates are really slow.

Brilliant comedy and deconstruction of shoujo tropes

Takane to Hana is a romantic comedy that disregards and subverts most of the usual tropes and cliches that have come to typify shoujo manga. The best way to describe this may be, "What happens when two tsunderes start to fall in love with each other?" but another way to describe it is, "Freaking hysterical."

This manga has great art (particularly the super deformed/chibi art and face reactions) and incredible banter between the two leads that will have you giggling out loud. The drama aspect is light, the romance is also light and on a slow burn, but the comedy is in your face in every chapter.

Even if you are put off by shoujo manga in general, I highly recommend this one. It's suitable to be enjoyed by all ages and genders - just remember to bring your sense of humor.

The first time I saw the cover which has actually a nice art, I became interested with it. So, I gave it a try. The first chapter is really interesting and I think it's refreshing. Thought at first I think the story started as cliche, it has a really nice turn of events that makes it different. The MCs personalities are different, unexpected and unusal compared to other shoujo mangas. It's really funny how they sarcastically treat each other so hard ≧﹏≦ that lately, I've been wondering how will love grow between these two?
Overall, this is highly recommended to anyone who loves new and refreshing story. Tbh, so far, I haven't read a manga that has a similar feel and approach like this.

Not like ordinary shoujo drama, the character are cute, refreshing, funny and sweet at the same time. Takane also different from the usual male lead, he's awkward, M that pretends to be S, and doesn't want to admit that he has fallen head over heels with Hana.

At first I thought it's pretty much the same as other shoujo manga, BUT IT'S NOT. Please give it a try, you'll love it. I hope the scan group will keep upload new chapters.

It's a fun manga that still manages to be serious and sweet. The characters are developing nicely, and the way the story unfolds about them is really well done.
I highly recommend it.
