So when she sees her schoolmate, Hananoi-kun, sitting in the snow after a messy, public breakup, she thinks nothing of offering to share her umbrella.

More than what it seems

At first glance, it's easy to mistake it as another shoujo manga romanticizing unhealthy and obsessive behaviors. I would definitely be wary of that if you're easily uncomfortable with that, or you've had bad situations relating to that. I don't blame you for steering clear of this manga.

HOWEVER. I do implore you to push through it. Because unlike other shoujos which might romanticize this behavior, this manga actively addresses it as a problem that the male lead Hananoi has and struggles with -- and something that slowly starts to change as the story goes on. I say this too as someone who has dealt with my own huge personal codependency problems, and knows intimately the struggle it takes to overcome them. Yeah, some of his obsessive behavior is played for laughs, and at this point in the story, quite a bit of it still remains, but you can tell, bit by bit, he's working towards dealing with his demons.

I'd also like to note, without going too much into it, that a lot of his maladaptive behaviors have plot-related explanations behind them, and in a lot of ways they stem more from insecurity and trauma than just simply being a character trait he has. Just know that whatever you see, there IS a reason behind it, even if you don't know it at the time.

The real star of the show though is Hotaru, the main female lead. Sweet, caring, and exceptionally considerate, and someone who cares deeply about her family and friends. Someone whose silliness is a different brand of cutesy compared to many other shoujo leads I've seen. She has an aura that almost feels like going into a relaxing hot bath -- seeing her just soothes me. It's also not very often to see a character who loves food so explicitly that isn't played off as a joke, and as a fellow food-lover who knows how much it can bring people together, I think that's really wonderful. And more than that, she's a natural counter for Hananoi's unhealthy tendancies; setting boundaries, asking for what the other wants, so on and so forth. "If love means that only one of us gets to be happy, then screw love!" she says in the first chapter, and I think it's that worldview that is what pushes Hananoi towards a healthier path.

I really really love this manga. It has a lot of sweetness and fluff for sure, but it's definitely a lot deeper than it lets on. I have a lot of joy of seeing them work through their relationships, both past and present, and I really am excited to see what new development happens next.

This is an amazing story at first. I loved the way they show their love until Hananoi started acting a bit off. Not only "a bit", completely if you will. He's showing a lot of red flags which makes me uncomfortable.

I've read a lot of shojo over the years, and at a certain point they all start blending together. This is one of the few series that I find to be actually memorable and genuinely curious about where it's going.

It initially threw me off in the first volume, because the male lead Hananoi, was throwing out all kinds of red flags...he fell in the love with our FMC Hotaru immediately after a kind gesture, he takes emotions to the extreme and is totally self-destructive (in the name of love). He is also generally unkind or unfriendly to anyone accept Hotaru. My first reaction was, "Oh god PLEASE don't let the author paint this behavior as romantic or healthy," because shojos have a tendency to pain unhealthy behaviors as romantic. Hotaru's very first reaction to his extreme nature made me much more hopeful though, as she immediately tries to set him straight by telling him he shouldn't be doing these kinds of things. It's dangerous to place all of your hopes and happiness on a single person like Hananoi does, because you then 1) make them responsible for your feelings and 2) make yourself isolated and much more likely to get hurt when they inevitably can't live up to your super high expectations.

The story hasn't been perfect in addressing all these red flags, but I'm really hoping that this series will go the route of actively addressing the obsessive nature of Hananoi. He strikes me as someone who sees no worth in himself and seeks validation through romantic partners. So I hope Hotaru can help him learn how to be happy and comfortable on his own, and show him that the extreme people-pleaser attitude he has towards Hotaru isn't good for either of them.

Anyways, I find this take on the obsessive male lead trope to be really interesting since, in my opinion, it seems to stem from a place of fear (of being alone/without love) rather than a place of possessiveness.

Side note, the art is gorgeous and Hotaru's character design is wonderful - I've never seen a female protagonist that looks like her!

I’m so happy I found this manga. I love the characters.

In so many shoujo mangas, the main character(usually the girl) is always so annoying. Like, she blushes every panel despite saying, “oh, I don’t like guys.” I hate that type of Mc. They’re always so sensitive and overthink things too much.

However, this time, I really like Hotaru’s character. She still blushes of course, but not every page like most other mangas. I’m really glad she keeps a rational head, and she really does look clueless about love(unlike other mangas).

I also love Hananoi-kun, there’s definitely something off about him, but I still love him XD I think I just really like faithful guys.

So far it's a really good read and one of the only mangas I remember to check in on once in a while for updates... Everything about it is top notch (the characters, art, story, romance). The only thing I will mention that puts me on edge is all the red flags that show up every now and then with Hananoi's (male lead) character and his affection for Hotaru (female lead). I'm excited for the next chapters to come out, but also terrified about my theory on who "Hananoi" really is.

This is the type of story that is my personal favorite. Similar to Koi Dano Ai Dano in that the female lead is rational, not interested in love (at first), and somewhat plain. The female in this story is kinder and acts a little cuter. I really like her.
My concern is with the male lead. I fear he may be putting the female lead into a box and cutting her off from her important family and friends. We’ll see how it progresses but the male lead is kind of scary sometimes.

The male lead is a little sick in the mind lol jk but not really, I'd say he's strong-willed (stubborn) or deviant (masochist?) except not in sexual way.
The female lead is probably one of the most ordinary and rational girl ever. I'd love to be her friend!
The plot is well, manga-ish obviously, as I couldn't imagine love trial irl, but it's not a bad thing at all.

I love the leads. Hananoi is an oddball, and everyone acknowledges it. He will go really, really far for the one he loves. It is not portrayed in a positive way, more like an issue to be resolved, which is is lovely and unusual in itself. He is at the same time lovely and creepy, so you'll get a bit ambivalent about him, I'm sure.

The plot is very serene, in a way. So far the only issues their relationship has is her naivety (a bit) and his self-destructive behavior; he loves her to death and is excessive, possessive and just cares about her, so there are doubts and shit. Even tho there are support character, I don't think we'll get any love rival in the near future.

She is unsure about love, but as the story progresses she learns more about it and herself. Hotaru, the FL is lovely. She is calm, collected and kind. In my opinion, not plain at all. Even her character design is memorable.

I feel like the story is more about how they evolve as a couple and better each other than anything. In the second chapter they are already a couple, but it feel so organic. So, in my opinion, not a cliche.
The story also has a lot of subtleties, so keep an eye.
