From Viz:
Takemoto lives in a run-down student apartment, where his greatest worry is when he'll next be able to afford to eat meat and whether he'll get to class on time. Although he's away from home and living on his own, Takemoto is far from finished growing up. Along with his crazy cast of friends, Morita, Mayama, Yamada, and Hagumi, Takemoto sets out to discover life and his true self.

Note: Was adapted into a live action film in 2006 and a live action tv series.
Won the the 27th Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo in 2003 (shared with Kimi wa Pet).

I have to say that this is one of those mangas that I just don't like no matter what I do. I've tried reading it again and again but I simply drop it because I don't understand what is happening in the manga and it simply confuses me throughout. This manga has to be one of the "worst" I've read and I just can't stand it.

It's strange. This was one of the few manga that I didn't like from the beginning, but loved when I reread. I don't know what it is about this manga, but I find just about everything quirky and charming. I remember reading the first volume and thinking "what the heck is this about? I don't get it". But now that I reread it, it's funny to me. Everything in it is amusing, and deep at the same time. It's an amazing manga. Please check it out if you have the time!~

I only started following up on the story a few months ago when I saw it in Shoujo Beat magazine, so maybe the art was worse in the beginning but I personally loved the art. I like the mangaka's style, it's really different, but cute. The plot is also pretty good... love triangles and unreciprocated love and the like. Now the story IS a bit slow but it can't be helped since it's one of those sad-and-sweet-slice-of-life mangas like Cat Street or Kimi ni Todoke. And it's supposed to be realistic, which it is. Overall it's got a heartwarming feel to it. I personally prefer it to the anime or the drama, just because it's the original.

The manga is all right, but it's starting to get really confusing. I like the live action a lot better. Maybe the anime would be good too...
I don't really recommend this manga if you aren't really into slice of life shoujo. But it is very cute, and for some reason, (maybe it's because they're art students) it always inspires me to draw.

Honey and Clover proves to be the most touching tale I've read/watched ever. I've cried so many times, it isn't funny!!
I love Morita!! He's such a whack...he totally keeps the humour in the story with his crazy antics. And Takemoto is such a nice guy...awwww...and of course, Mayama with his stalking!! Shuu-sensei is pretty crazy too. Esp. matters concerning Hagu.
It still puzzles me that Hagu's an adult.
The manga has been translated upto 12 chapters only....I'm following the anime which holds true to the storyline.
I love it till now!!!

Hachikuro is one of the most bittersweet, believable, heart-warming manga/animes I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot. It's not your typical shoujo fare - where all is light and happiness, but instead, it chooses to explore depth of character and the reality of relationships. Not to mention Morita Shinobu is just full of WIN.

Don't judge it by the artwork. In fact, a recommendation: WATCH THE ANIME FIRST, if you're spoilt by all those shoujo artists who draw in beautiful, clean detail. Also the anime is actually finished and _available_. -cough- >.>

If you want something good but more on the humourous side, go for Nodame Cantabile!

This one is really, really bad, it should be tagged as fantasy i'd say.I don't get why it's so popular, things move so slowly, things are so unrealistic it hurts reading the dialog.Everything is pretentious, its really tiresome.

I tried I really did and this one lost my interst a lot quicker than Crimison Hero and Kaze Hikaru did. Though I'm sure that this manga is a great anime and live action show, I cant stand the manga, the art wok is very scratchy and in my mind I cant read it with art work that looks so bad

Have not actually read the manga, but the anime is the reason why i loved this. I do not particularly hooked to any of the characters but they made it complete. My life is pretty much similar to takemoto, a student away from home, living harsh but with friends around, everything is possible. So I can say with conviction that the characters are lifelike. And the soundtrack.. ah.. they are so beautiful.. they captures the moments and emotions perfectly.
