Nina's neighbor, Kyousuke, is starting high school while she's still stuck in junior high. Just walking to their nearby schools together isn't enough for her--especially since they keep running into Yuiko: a beautiful, outgoing girl in Kyousuke's grade who also seems to harbor feelings for Nina's next-door neighbor.

I'm so happy with the ending! I went through the whole thing thinking 'god please let Miyake and Nina stay together even though he's not the main boy'! This ending was just great, so satisfied!

The ending was so good I don't feel sorry for kyousuke he's an idiot if he lover her too why did he hurt her so much, why did he ended up dating that slut, why ?? Because she rejected his kiss just for that. Asshole! Ugh. My bad. Well anyway I'm glad about the ending she finally realized her feelings. I'm quite happy bc miyake care about Nina feelings over his but the other guy he was just playing around he was giving hopes to Nina she believed it. I just hate him.. from the bottom of my heart. He lost the love of his life just for a slutty girl. You got what you deserve.

I like this manga because usually the girl always choose the asshole guy. But didn't happen I was praying for that actually.

It was good overall to me. I think it's the first manga that I ever hated a character this much

The story is quite slow and sometimes there were some unnecessary things happened. But overall, I enjoyed it. The ending was satisfying for me.

Recommended to everyone.

He's tossed around by a slut who ruins his lifelong mutual love. Then ends up forever alone while some jabronni is banging his unrequited love 5 ft away from his room. Jesus Christ have some goddamn empathy for the opposite gender when you write a manga.

It was honestly a rough beginning, very, should I say, shoujo-like. But it grows on you and it ends in a unique way. Not just in who she ends up with, but her interactions with other members of her family and fellow students. She's not some loner who makes friends throughout the manga. She already has friends and they support her. And though it is not free of drama, the bulk of it is centered around the main characters and not other random students in the school trying to create trouble.

Enjoyable read and would recommend to any shoujo fan.

It's ok. And by the way, this is not the first manga to have this sort of ending. I have read many similar titles. There are a few things that bother me though.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Early in the manga, if she was really so in love with him, why did she reject his kisses twice. That's not the way to convince someone you love them and want to date them. Also, if he really liked her all along, then why turn down her confession and date someone else. It really makes no sense at all. Last but not least, she seemed to move on rather fast. Under normal circumstances, it would probably be normal to move on in the given amount of time, but I think it was be nearly impossible to move on while living next door to the person and interacting with them on a daily basis.

Every character got what it deserved.
A very good story, like the heroine a lot. Not your typical crybaby shoujo manga character.

I didn't like it, but it had potential and there were a few cute moments.

This series could have been a really sweet story of first love, but it all goes so wrong halfway into volume one. Let me just break it down:

The characters - Nina was sweet, but such a cry baby. Oh man, she was literally crying in every other scene and I had no clue why. It was just unecessary. She was also a little too naive and obtuse. As for Kyousuke, man, what was he doing? I didn't understand him at all. Both characters were horribly developed (yeh, even for a manga). I didn't get their motivations at all.

The story - It was confusing, and not just the panels. The dialogue as well (even that was scarce in parts). This could have been a really nice story of a girls crush and how she has to rethink her feelings as she grows and their lives don't connect in every way for the first time. I could have even appreciated the ending if the writing were better. As is, the plot didn't flow well and that killed it for me.

The art - Getting straight to the point, I didn't care for it. I felt it was inconsistent and messy.

I'm not into that kind of cliche shoujo, and if fact, i'm glad this wan.t one of those. Although there are 10 vol, it didn't feel like it was too much to dense, and stuff. It's a very nice, and pretty story, with some parts that maybe would've been better if they were explained a little bit more.
But aside of that, in was finally refreshing and it didn't dissapointed me at all. Even in the extras are things that complete some missing thoughts and feelings. Loved everything, Miyake looks like Roxas though (pretend you didn't read that).
A shoujo like it's supposed to be, more or less. More realistic.

A must read. X3

This was an above-average read. I liked the art, although the side profiles of the bodies seemed flat? The story was slow, and very slice-of-lifey. The protagonist was a cry-baby, but honestly it didn't bug me, because her personality was still strong and she wasn't like those irritating whiny protagonists.

The cons..
-I found the story to be a bit too slow.. by the time I finished, I was surprised that i had read ten volumes.. in those ten volumes it felt like not very much happened..I guess because there wasn't any of those cliche shoujo plot schemes (which is a plus), but yea.. kinda feel like it could have been condensed.
-The ending was good, but felt sort of unfulfilling.. like I said it was ten volumes but I felt like not much had happened.. I guess its because the ending-couple finally gets together in the LAST chapter, and I ended up wanting to see a bit more. Sort of like Strobe Edge except Strobe Edge was more eventful.
-I liked Kyou. I did hate him during some parts, but I switched between rooting for both him and Miyake. That said, his character felt very 2D.Therefore it was a bit difficult to understand him/feel for him. Miyake was better, although I wish the author would have added some more background to him too.. Character development is especially important for these slice-of-life mangas.. This was the biggest fault of the manga in my opinion, other than the painfully slow pace.
