what a mess...   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

things i liked:
[+] art (god, the guys are gorgeous in this and the mixed friend? she was so cute. too bad we only saw her in different clothes like... three times....)
[+] shishio getting flustered all the time
[+] suzuzme being straight-forward, quirky, simply different from typical lead girls (in the beginning, at least)
[+] mamura not holding back when confronting shishio

things i didn't like:
[-] story is a literal mess. it feels like the mangaka didn't know what the hell she was going to choose until maybe the three last chapters and even then so much of the drama was so unnecessary (did suzume really have to go back?? did she have to make mamura feel insecure before leavingconfused couldn't she tell him what was going on rather than make him feel miserableconfused?)
[-] yuyuka kind of just falling back into the shadows even when she's constantly the one putting suzume back on track. really wished we could see her relationship develop as well as her personality flourish a little more.
[-] suzume is far too clueless in some ways; i felt it was a little much at times.
[-] all the shy stuff about kissing, etc. suzume seemed more straight-forward in the sense that if she wanted to kiss someone, she would do it, so it was a little disappointing that she would freeze up or do nothing when she clearly liked the guy. like, he's not reaching for her hand? well, who cares, she just reaches out for it anyway! i honestly expected that all the time lol

overall, the manga was pretty good, though i wouldn't re-read it.

since suzume wasn't really a concrete character and went too soft for my liking, i liked shishio's character the most. he seemed more thought out than mamura and had some depth to his thoughts, emotions, and mistakes. mamura's biggest flaw as a character was the whole "she's different from other girls" nonsense. if i had a dollar for every time that's "the reason i love her" given.....

it sucked that shishio was a grown man, doing things that are expected of him, but when he decides "fuck it, i'm doing what i want and taking on the consequences for it," there's so much unnecessary drama? and although i loved the concept of mamura, shishio was more appealing in more ways than one (but, hey, i have a type and shishio fits into it 100%). still, the ending is alright and i understand why it would be done this way. was just too rose-colored for me.

eh, overall, it was good enough to keep reading, even if it was mostly because i liked the art a lot lol

I liked this series because the ending wasn't so darn cliche, and despite the number of volumes it wasn't too dragged out or wishy washy, I liked the side couples and character development, at least the ending proved she grew up and had her mind set on a happier relationship, as well as that it shows the realism aspects of the story because most shoujo manga you know damn well who the heroine will choose from the first chapter

Well firstly, in general, shoujo with little to offer besides romance aren't exactly my cup of tea. This manga would probably come under that category, and a reader with my tastes wouldn't find it spectacular either. But I won't call it bad, because I did have the motivation to finish it after I started. When I did finish it, however, it didn't leave much of an impact on me. Sure, there were some 'heart-thumping' scenes that you can't help but go 'wah' at, but in all, the story and the whole love triangle plot was 'meh' - not boring, but bland. I was most disappointed by the protagonist - she started out as a funny interesting character. It really bugged me that she would only search her 'daytime shooting star's in a romance, and eventually she became, well, typical. The whole process of falling in love, as some said below, seemed superficial, which made it worse. Contrary to many, however, I liked the ending. It was confusing and stupid, but I liked Mamura. He and his scenes are probably the only thing that had an effect on me. Shishio, on the other hand, was simply difficult to understand.
The art is quite pretty.

arghh... i can't explain my feelings right now...
i'm crying but i know that i can't really hate the one Suzume had chosen in the end.
But I'm really not satisfied with the outcome.

spoiler alert below:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I just want to express my feelings through this quote:

-People are meant to fall in love with each other but are not meant to be TOGETHER-

i think this really applied with sensei and suzume
i really want sensei to end up with Suzume...
not everybody is perfect...people make mistakes..
even though sensei messed up in the beginning, he faced his true feelings and changed for Suzume...
you keep telling Mamura is the right guy.. but there isn't a right guy in life..
I'm not against Mamura and i really like him but sensei for me is Suzume's daytime shooting star.

the plot twist (where suzume choose Mamura) for me was kinda pushing it..
sure Mamura is the good guy, the knight in shining armor and sensei was the bad guy.
and in most shoujo the heroine always chooses her first love even if he was a jerk.
i think they only want to show that this is not a typical shoujo.

It seems like some people liked the start but not the end. For me, it would be the opposite.

I liked the ending. By that, I mean that not only the plot was good at the end, but the storytelling was also good. I could understand the feelings and actions of the characters at a deeper level. Perhaps it was due to the author improving on her storytelling skills.

However, the beginning of the story was rather bland. The plot itself was alright, but the way the story was presented made it difficult for me to connect to the characters. Perhaps the thing I found lacking for the first half of the story was that the process of falling in love wasn't portrayed as well as it could have been. I felt that it lacked depth and felt rather superficial SPOILER ALERT(i.e.: girl falls for her teacher, teacher falls for her - but how? It seems like he just fell for her. It was rather abrupt).

Even the middle part of the story was just mediocre - quite typical. It was interesting, but it was not outstanding enough to make me feel really excited. When I read the little developments in the middle, it's more like "oh, is that so?" kind of feeling, not like "What?! Why did that happen? That's really good!" nor did it make me think along the lines of "that's some really good character development!" because the characters developed the way most do in these kinds of stories (EXCEPT the main girl character at the ENDING ONLY, which is why I like it). This part that I like is AFTER she made her final decision (the plot twist). The story flowed pretty well after the big suspense. However, BEFORE that, it was underdeveloped - especially how she arrived at her final decision. I think this is what some readers disliked, which made the rest of the beautiful ending unenjoyable for them.

If it wasn't for the ending, this manga would be a 7/10 , but because of the ending, it deserves a 7.8/10.
Amusingly, it feels like the opposite of Ao Haru Ride, which had a good beginning in terms of storytelling quality.

Definitely worth to read manga. One of the best artworks for my liking, I wish all magas were drawn like that. Characters (none of them) are not annoying and really captivating. The only big fault for me is the ending. Kind of sad and unsatisfying, I practically skipped the last chapter, when I saw where all of this is going.

First of all. Reading the prior reviews, I'm pretty irritated. Nothing ticks me off more than reading "cliche" in every review of a shoujo manga. When you are reading a "comedy, romance, school life, shoujo slice of life" manga... exactly what are you expecting to read? That's like reading a "shounen, ecchi, sports" and being surprised there's panty shots of girls playing sports. Honestly. Rant over, moving on. smile

This is a wonderful manga, highly deserving of it's rating. The character development is great and deeply enthralling to the point where you actually find yourself picking sides and rooting for that character until the end. And, when you get to the end you really feel that hit or miss. In any case, I've read a lot of shoujo manga and I definitely say this is in my top 10. Thank you for the read!

The premise is a cliche: girl moving away.
But the characters are what make this stand out.
If your looking a normal but entertaining shojo, try it.
The main character, Suzune, while a normal girl, is independent, isnt shy and has guts.
Mamura is the best character. He is not the usual love interest. His blushing thing is just hilarius, and he never does something stupid that make him lose his dignity.

i just want to say i love her artworks, it's fantastic. but her storytelling? not so much. i felt so disappointed after a while. i just waited, hoping for the author to put together the story a little better eventually, but nothing happened so i dropped it. it really had a lot of potential to go somewhere. no character growth. just abrupt romance. i rooted for neither of the male leads (although i did like both) because the female lead was absolutely unlikeable to me. i didn't dislike her, her character was just really bland.

Although, I actually wanted Yosano to end up with Satsuki but I can understand her being with Mamura. This series made me cry many times, it was a tough manga to read. I hate it but I love it (is this possible?). I honestly suggest all readers to read this, not just girls, but boys too. So you can understand what love is and what kind of hardship you'll go through.
This is very beautiful series, please I recommend it.
