From Stiletto Heels:
In a small provincial town filled with a spirit of preservation for a traditional performance art called, "Owara," arrives Hotaruko, a transfer student from Tokyo. When a local boy named Hikaru catches her in an awkward stance in - what was supposed to be - an empty classroom, they form a strange bond.
What's more, their bond makes way for an unexpected development?

Annoying female lead

The series started great.....
but the female lead became more irritating as the chapters progress...
She is selfish, spoiled and very high maintenance..,
I feel sorry for the male lead for always covering for her and picking up her slacks..
She is very insensitive and an idiot... She lives in a small town where gossip easily spread...
I know that loving a person has got nothing to do with age and she is free to do whatever she wants but can't she restrain herself a bit for the sake of the Uncles reputation..
Not only is she very obvious with her feelings but she doesn't care if other people see...

I just hate this types of characters.. Her actions most of the time are unforgivable
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I completely hated her when she was acting jealous because the uncle (Madoka) was visiting and caring for her sick and dying mother... Like wtf!!!! She is really selfish!!!! Thinking more about the Uncle than her dying mother!!!!

Really looking forward to reading more of this. Currently 2 volumes in.

Kodama Yuki has a great knack for creating interest in art and culture. After reading Sakamichi no Apollon, I went to listen to jazz, now I'm watching owara.

The art is beautiful, especially with the dance elements and costumes. I'm excited to read more.

Thanks for scanlating, Stiletto Heels!

I really like this manga. Kodama Yuki has her specific way of setting story and she is good when it comes to background details. Setting and secondary characters are more interesting than main leads and manga is quite informative about Owara-dance. Even though the "love triangle" was dragged out there is several reasons to read this work

I am surprised no one has commented on this series yet! So far it has a really interesting plot where it may look like a weird love triangle between a high school boy, his new classmate, and his uncle but I am predicting
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
past lives are the reason why Hotaruko and Madoka are so familar with each other.
The art is also on point and I am definitely keeping my eye out for any new updates smile
