i've been a shisio-sensei fan from the start..
i really like how destiny played with them and let them meet for the first time in the busy train station and turns out they were teacher and student later on.
well suzume was bound to meet Mamura because they're classmate.
shishio is really suzume's daytime shooting star cause whenever she was lost Shishio was always there to find her.
sure shishio dumped suzume at some point in time but that's because he's bound by the teacher-student situation but he did love suzume and fought bravely in the end.
the ending was kinda rush and there really isn't much closure in Shishio and Suzume's attempted relationship.
although mid the story i kinda bend for Mamura but Shishio will always have a special part in my heart. People are not perfect and there is no age or right or wrong in love. I truly believe that Shishio is truly the one for Suzume. My daytime shooting star!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

I think this one is definitely a readable and good one, art- and story-wise.

I do agree with the guys that it is typical and cliched. But I like its execution. Only problem is how rushed, despite making senses, it is towards the end. And I definitely don't like how usually, not just this but shoujo in common, elaborations on the guys' feeling are missing. I am pretty sure Shishio was devastated. And I am confused on how unconditional Mamuro has been. I don't dislike the female lead that bad, she was inexperienced for God's sake. It is just the choice of the author. She can try to make it work out for Shishio and Chunchun. But it can be the other way because somehow it seems more appropriate and approvable socially speaking. So somehow it is realistic to me.

But then I just feel damn sad for Shishio. I truly do. I think Mamuro is nice and all. But its just the struggles Shishio bears. It hurts for both him and Suzuma. Mamuro is the better person. But I still feel incredibly sad for Shishio. So so sad...

[Updated] Although I'm still sad, I'm a bit lightened up that I can re-read it sometimes. After a bit of conflict and personal deliberation, I thought the ending was for the best. I am still sad though. But I like the series as it is. Maybe a bit better for Shishio, please!

I really love this ending. This is the first ever manga I thought it's fine whichever guy she'd end up with. I was rooting for both of them. It's realistic

since it's rarely in real life you would end up with your first love. Moreover, feelings can be changed over time.

Is it the journey

People say it's not the ending but the journey to get there. I believe it's a combination of both. For me, a good story has an awesome start, a great body, and of course a satisfying conclusion which is something I found lacking in this manga.

I really hate it when characters lie for no reason except to keep the plot going. How many characters lie in shoujo simply because telling the truth would alleviate the drama.
