14-sai no Koi  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
The second year of junior high, when most students are in the throes of puberty and feeling the pangs of first love. Itís no different for Kanata Tanaka and Kazuki Yoshikawa, a girl and a boy who have been friends since elementary school. But even though Kanata and Kazuki are at the same point in life as their classmates, an air of adulthood sets the two apart. Kanata is taller and more attractive than the other girls, but the boys stay away because she seems too mature for them. Kazuki too stands out from the other boys, but the girls are wary of him because he seems like a player. And so, Kanata and Kazuki are thrown together in a charming, bittersweet tale of two very adult students falling in love like the teenagers they are.

Heartwarming, innocent, refreshing... Makes you remember your first love. I don't think the characters are weird or immature for keeping their relationship a secret. CulturaI differences on thing, I can imagine the fuss their classmates would make.

I like the 2nd part of the story too-- about the problem child and the teacher. I don't find it disturbing at all, the opposite actually.. I think the woman is a great teacher because she has a way to deal with the guy. Most teachers would just give up on him. Of course, locking the classroom and putting the key in her bra might seem shocking to some, but since it worked? I think that sometimes a teacher has to do something "not normal" to get to a student who doesn't act "normal" either. Not every kid is the same and not every will listen/pay attention to you just because you're an adult.

As long as they don't have sex, I don't think that romantic feelings between the teacher and her student are wrong.

edit; I think this manga is getting better and better biggrin Very cute. All characters are getting some development, which is awesome. I'm really looking forward to more. The teacher/student relationship is getting very interesting as well-- I like how Nagai is changing an maturing.

The Draw of School Life

@ That3rdGuy

I can understand the draw of school life manga to adults. It's a life they'll never relive, unlike a story where the protagonists are adults. Does that mean they hate their own childhood or lives now as you suggest? Not necessarily.

A lot of people just enjoy living vicariously through characters whom they'll never be (again). Some of them might just like reading about cute or innocent characters (e.g. Chii's Sweet Home is seinen).

I'm happy for you that you had a great life and got laid instead of kissing in high school. You deserve a pat on the back for that. From your other posts, you explicitly describe yourself as a great supervisor or mastermind. You might want to reconsider, if you have so much trouble empathizing with others and understanding their motivations.

You might think I am crazy, but I can really relate to the music teacher somehow..I have just finished my practice at school, in the 7 grade the boys were so cute and innocent I really wanted to tease them a little...So I think the teacher character is quite realistic,despite what most of you think..

For reasons, just Yes.

People seem to over use the term refreshing, but for some reason, I really do think it fits with this manga (so far). The author is very good at taking these middle schoolers that are indeed mature, but still keeping them middle schoolers, with somewhat frivolous concerns and struggling with how to act in certain situations. The romance is very sweet, and their relationship is very realistic and open.

The teacher and the other student is a bit cheesy. Kind of creepy, but I like to think that she's more just messing with him, that they act a bit more like elder sister and brother.

Other than that, two thumbs way up, give it a read!

This is not a typical shojo story. Just as the characters are "mature", the themes presented in the manga, though light-hearted, are wider than the typical girlxguy. I found the secondary characters more interesting than the main couple. A very interesting read if you don't mind some silly plot mechanisms, like the reason of the secret relationship...

finally some smart, cute and well drawn seinen romance manga - not some cliché bullshit like rest in which the protagonist starts to nosebleed after seeing some panties or stuff like that - i hope this manga will keep that high level till the end

It's really focused on the romance and has a touch of innocence to it. So far it's a sweet story between Kanata and Kazuki, both really popular students that have been long time friends but suddenly begin to mutually feel more for each other. At school they pretend to not know each other but occasionally meet up secretly and that's where the romance begins.

How Mature~

I love the realism of emotions and reactions depicted by the two main characters. Their actions aren't over the top while still maintaining a certain fluffy feel full of blushes and shy looks that I've come to love about manga. Can't wait to see more.

I didn't expect to enjoy this manga at all, but it was pretty cute! I love how there's so little drama and how any misunderstandings/problems are immediately resolved. Even though the main characters aren't as mature as adults, they are definitely act beyond their age during various situations--I really love that!

This manga, so far, focuses on 4 potential pairings (no love triangle though). It also features 2 other relationships every now and then. I love everyone!

what is with the rape tag? this is one of the most innocent little feel good romance stories i've ever seen. could it be referring to whatshisname and the teacher? either way the inclusion of the tag is just really out of place.
