For Tanpopo Yamazaki, life at the elitist academy in Tokyo seems way out of her league. The children of wealthy families snub her, other students make light of the fact that she actually tested into Meio, instead of relying on family connections, and the cute boy she saw tending a dandelion the day before wouldn't even acknowledge her existence. Hoping to make friends and have some fun, Tanpopo starts up a gardening committee, but will this help her survive in a school where superficiality and money reign supreme?

There was no emotional punch to this series. Things like terror attacks and teen pregnancy and love triangles… those plot lines should feel at least a little suspenseful! I always knew what was coming next. I wish I could dismiss it by saying this was one of her earlier series, but it's not. The gardening element could have played up a lot more to make this series more unique… *sigh* If you want "rich high school kids form a club and have whacky adventures together" without this pretense of intrigue then read Ouran Host Club or My Heavenly Hockey Club.

Everything is perfect (characters,friendship,plots,drawings,etc) except for the ending and some parts that was left hanging.
I'm still confuse with the fact that Tanpopo had to come back to her hometown. Well,if she couldn't leave her grandparents anymore then why did she leave from the first place? Also I still don't know the reason she left her hometown from the first place,was it to go to a better school?
Also the problems between Kouki,Youji and their parents,didn't they have a little family problem? Being distanced and all?
Or maybe it was just me?

i HATE main female characters that get bullied by others girl and other people and just act like its not a big deal. that glasses girl is a complete b1tch, and she calls her cool and forgives her, no sane person would act like that!

I was a bit surprised by this one. If you've read a few Yuu Watase works and are utterly tired of too many attempted rape scenes/pointless character deaths/smutty scenes, then this one is for you. It does not drag, (being only five volumes) and is for the most part a very light-hearted story about finding one's place in the world. The main character is a cheerful, likeable girl and all of the other characters have a certain something about them that makes them memorable. Recommended for when you want to read a cute shoujo manga that's not too long and not too serious.

I have to admit, out of all Watase's reverse-harem all-time chick fantasy works, I like this one the best. One, it doesn't deal with weird demons or characters out of a book. Two, instead of dealing with jealousy of each other over the best boyfriend, this one works with gardening. And three, it's easy going and doesn't drag for over 20 volumes.

imadoki is the only manga of watase where i don't hate the main character and wish they would just die. i really like tanpopo's character but i thought she was better before she started liking him. she was funnier then too. i thought the first book was better than the later ones but overall it was good

I knew about this manga a long time ago but i didn't want to read it because i THOUGHT the drawing is bad and im a sucker for drawings in shoujo manga's. Anyway, this manga was surprisingly really really good. very cute and romantic! I was shocked that the art was actually good and that the manga would be that good! The only reason i gave it a 9.5 is because
Spoiler (highlight to view)
i guess i expected it to have a CRAZY ending. the ending was good.. like happy ending where last page is him going to her and hugging her saying he will be staying in hokkaido with her but i dunno. i wanted more hahaahha guess it's just me XD
All in all, this manga really didn't have any flaws cuz there was character development and no boring parts at all! i was hooked right at the first volume! haha if you like those shoujo-romance-light-nice feeling manga's i highly recommend this smile

Well, I'd have to say that this was a fun manga to read. It was cute and typical of a few shoujo manga already on the market. The storyline was not bad and Tampopo is a pretty admirable person-- sometimes a bit too cheery for my liking. Overall, this is a fun read.

Neheheheheh... Surrounded by total hunks yet again. Then there's the flushed, independent jerk, and under all that thick skin lies a a man of cloying sweetness. As long as she's not like Miaka its all good right? Wrong Tanpopo Yamazaki still maintains unbearable positiveness. Ohh the painnn... But other then that, a good read. Well for me a great time killer.

Artwork is really good, storyline was fairly interesting and the flower talk was good too, but the heroine herself was quite annoying to me. Don't know why.
