From Hanashi:

The start of high school life. To the girls, that also meant the start of their love lives. For brand new first year student, Takahashi Nanami (Nana for short), it was no different... She happens to end up in the same class as the incredibly popular Yano Motoharu, who rumors say that two thirds of all the girls are guaranteed to fall in love with. But will that hold true for Nana, who says that if she had to choose between like or dislike, she'd say she dislikes him!?

Note: Won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo in 2005.

overall it's really a good manga... the pace, the characters, the pain n sorrow everyone's bringing depicts realistically. I regret i dropped this series when it was still on early volumes, thought it was another boring shoujo manga. When right now, after some recommendations and willingly at heart to read this series again... i must say that this manga is exceed my expectation.
one complain is about how the girl's clinging for the past so much although it have been 5 years.. when the story was portrayed like that, it diminished the sense of realistic life or actually i just want the girl to move on.

This manga brought me to feel so much pain . it's slow paced but that's what makes it so realistic .
every time i see Yano's expression , my chest feels pain .
i'm hoping for a happy ending , but since this manga says 'tragedy' i'm scared for the ending . but who knows , i mean . Hopefully it doesn't go overboard and make me not want to read it anymore .

I literally go crazy waiting for the new chapters to come out. The plot isn't very fast paced, but that's what makes it so realistic. For girls who love misunderstood boys, this is defiantly a must read. Yano is a very hurt and misunderstood being, and this story is sure to make you laugh, smile, and cry. I adore it.

Realistically Slow Romance Story   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

One thing this manga can lay claim to is realism. The premise, the locale, the characters all exude realism from their presentation and actions.

However, like in real relationships, this story is also realistically slow. Perhaps subtle is a way to put it, but when even the most mundane of actions take 2-3 pages, it can get old pretty fast, as I kept wanting to skip those pages and go straight to the conflict or plot devices the author wishes to present in the story.

Still, if readers like slow paced romance stories, this is recommendable, and since the manga demographic is aimed at females, I think this is the kind of stories they'd enjoy.

As a guy though, I think this manga is a bit too slow because it uses so many pages on mundane actions which doesn't really contribute to the character or story progression.

A tear-jerker this manga definitely is.

The BEST manga I've read so far

This is honestly the best manga i've red so far, it's so full of tragedy that are realistic and could happen to anyone. Nanami is plain so any shoujo readers out there could easily walk in her shoes that is what makes this manga so painful to read but I enjoy the drama in this manga. Another thing that is so different about this manga is that the author deliberately avoids cliches such as things like when one of them gets a fever because of the rain, or when couples stay strongly in love when they are a distance apart. it's just a normal high-school characters, with a normal life but somewhat a different degree of pain and suffering, but still a realistic one. Another thing that is extraordinary is that as readers, as we go on we QUESTION things, it's not predictable AT ALL, although when you get to know the characters well you'll be able to A LITTLE, but things are still in question, we are SO UNSURE about who or how it's going to end.

I'm really upset that it's on hold though, if i'd knew that earlier I wouldn't have start to read this series in the beginning.

it's too much to endure this long awaited manga. It's such a great creation, I'm serious. I think I wouldn't recommend it currently, only because it's TOO GOOD, I don't want others to feel the pain I'm suffering because of the hold. this is a MUST READ I think Obata Yuuki is such a genius for creating such a manga, I hope she can pull the ending off though because every chapter of this manga so far is flawless.

Personally, I really like Bokura Ga Ita. And if a story is good enough right from the beginning, I'll keep on liking it no matter what, even if it has been stretched out. I mean, people do what they can, right? And I don't mind seeing more of these characters. It's no pain to me.

That being said, I like the way this mangaka draws and her style of storytelling. It makes me feel like I'm reading the old-school shoujos, the ones that are real and very magical to read still, even without all the magic wands and costumes that are more frequently seen in shoujos today.

Things move slowly and are very difficult even, but I believe that that's realistic. It's the way things are, in real life, and it's true-to-life.

I'm glad this series has been picked up by JShoujo, where hopefully, they'll finish scanlating the series. It would be a pity for people to miss out on reading this series.

Bokura ga Ita is a slow-paced shoujo manga that follows the story of a shy and reserved schoolgirl named Nana and her first love, the bright and outgoing Yano. Beginning as friends, Nana and Yano eventually find themselves in a relationship. Though the audience wishes the best for them both, it is almost impossible from the very beginning.
Regardless of the fact that this series was on hiatus for quite some time, the story itself is more frustrating than the wait. Nana and Yano are adolescents; ignorant, clumsy and immature. For those of you who are older than 16, the clumsiness and carelessness of the two protagonists will often pain you. Firstly because it is reminiscent of your own adolescent experiences and secondly, it will pain you because you know better and reading about it is like stabbing yourself in the eye.
Bokura ga Ita's biggest downfall lies in its storyline. The development of the characters, their emotional reactions and their adolescent logic all create a strong base for the series. However, the mangaka wastes all of her hard work on ridiculous, lengthy storylines and hateful side characters.
I have to admit that I rarely read Shoujo manga for the very reasons why I can't fully enjoy this series. Why write it in 12+ volumes when you can do a decent story in less than half of that? Bokura ga Ita loses a big chunk of points in my rating simply for selling-out. I'd rather read a short series with integrity than read one of the many series that has been stretched too thin to earn more money.

I absolutely LOVE this manga. It was one of the few that I've actually purchased. The anime is just as great...I just wish that the next volume will be released soon...this waiting game is killing me.
