Yoshimatsu Hotaka is the president of the manga club and is always diligent with his studies and club responsibilities, even though he has a habit of skipping class activities. Although he looks like a regular honor student in reality he is overwhelmed by melancholy and haunted by his past misfortunes. Meanwhile, he makes sure to admire and watch Awaya Nika, the beautiful, bright, radiant, super cheerful swimming club's female ace. He's content to continue his high-school days like this until the P.E. teacher makes him take a private swimming lesson to make up for all the other lessons he had missed; a development that would forever change the dynamic between him and Awaya. What's the cause of Hotaka's bitterness? What does he want to hide?
How does Awaya Nika have more in common with him than he could ever imagine?

First few chapters were just absolute perfection. Then they introduce some stupid bullshit plot twist and I'm disappointed but I deal with it because I figure the mangaka will just fix it at some point. And then this series ends...with one of the worst endings...I've seen in a long time. And I'm just so mad. Don't read this series. Starts off great and just has a truly truly bad ending. I wish I had never read this. Give me my God damn time back.

Awww, this is by far the sweetest romance manga I've read so far. The genuinely awkward situations and realistic responses. I really empathise with the protagonist.

I mean, so many of us have had a crush on the cutest girl in school, and it's a breath of fresh air to read a romance story where the protagonist doubts himself (as most of us did) and wants to but really can't believe that that girl is actually interested in him. It's beautiful to see the two of them being pulled together by circumstances. It's as if you simply can't believe the girl is interested in you, and you put any events that happen between the two of you as coincidence.

Strangely enough, I've actually had many experiences like the protagonist while I was at school, and surprisingly, later when I'd moved on, it came out that those girls actually liked me back. It's so ironic. It's great to finally read a manga where I can truly empathise with the protagonist.

Anyway, 10 thumbs up for this series. This one definitely trumps Tora Dora, which was my previous favourite.

So far it seems quite good. The disabled male protagonist has been seen before but I do not think one with low self esteem has been done. Though I sorta saw the end of the second chapter coming....

Im looking forward to this one

As soon as I discovered this is the work of Toradora's author, I began reading it. But I guess that was a mistake to believe this will also be a masterpiece.

The art is beautiful, I really liked all the details, the way the artist portrayed the characters. With a good story this would be a really good manga.
Would be.
The story was great for the first 10 chapters, later something strange happened. The author made really strange decisions. First it looked like if the manga had to be rushed and finished as soon as possible. If that wasn't enough, the author decided to put drama that felt unnecessary, rushed and surprising but not in a positive way. Something really went bad at some point, the idea for the plot wasn't new but it was somewhat good... but that ending...

I wouldn't recommend it, after reading it I'm not sure if the time was wasted or not. The only thing I'm grateful is that this story ended in 23 chapters instead of for example 100. At least the readers don't have to suffer long.

Disappointing ending

I mean well, in this scene or based on the events in the story I wouldn't mind incest but it never happened and it made me very sad because they never end up with each other(or rather it was an open ending) but it was disappointing coming from the author of both Golden Time and ToraDora which are two masterpieces of the romance genre

Suprising manga

Starts out as a sweet comedy romance series with a little bit of drama.
Recent chapters introduce a heavy psychological aspect.
Most manga stick to the same themes and character behavior from start to finish, so I commend this manga for actual keeping me guessing as to what will happen next.

Started out pretty good but around the 11th or 12th chapter it just got really wacky. Kinda seems like all the characters are silly and don't take anything seriously but then the next moment they are super serious and "drama" starts. I know there is supposed to be a lot of comedic moments but it feels like the comedy and drama aren't paced well at all.
edit: Looking at the comments and at the ending...LOL glad I dropped this 2 years ago

This manga has been a sweet shoujo with a tinch of drama up until chapers 16-18, check it out until that point because it sure as hell is different, you can choose to drop it or keep going at that point at your liesure.

Sad.. I really liked this couple. I wouldn't mind "incest" in this case. Not sure where the author wanted to go with it, as I understand they axed it so he had to finish it abruptly. Aaaanyway, I like the art and the characters, can't wish for anything else.
