School life never fails to be an alluring theme to the reader. Even more so if there’s romance involved. Musunde Hiraite chooses to take a quite innovative path in the description of high school romance, as it doesn't simply focus on a single character’s pubescent worries, but rather has a school-wide purview.

Very cute story about an ensemble cast of characters experiencing love. The stories are cute and fluffy and there are some light love triangles. The art is absolutely gorgeous. The main character switches almost every chapter but its not too hard to follow as the author usually has an into explaining what happened last time you saw them.

Since this manga changes characters every chapter, it's so confusing I just loved the first chapter, but had a hard time to get used to the main character shift at every chapter

It's basically Hatsukoi Limited with prettier art. Characters are introduced and re-introduced in cycles, which can be a bother if you don't remember a character (which definitely happens at the rate these releases are going..) but the changing perspectives definitely works for this manga.
6 volumes (ongoing), damn.. hope the releases start picking up, it's a great manga.

When I read the description of this and saw that the protagonist changes every chapter but it's all contained within one class [though the next one may be the sister of the guy from chapter 1] I was quite intrigued. It seemed like a post-modern style romance, which I usually enjoy and appreciate more, and...

Wow. This is actually really good. It's got frequent laughs and you're always conscious of the romance. I haven't read many good romance mangas [the only two i can think of right now are yuri: Girl Friends and Sassameki Koto] so i am really glad i picked this one up. It's fantastic how a love story can seem so complete [for lack of a better word] with just one chapter of 40 pages, give or take a few.

I have actually never commented on the art in any manga review, as it really doesn't mean much to me, but this one's matches the story so well. As for the ecchi tag, I guess i can't really deny that there are panty shots but it is most definitely not exploitational. EDIT: At first...>.> Still good, though. it.

As there's only 4 chapters, i feel safe with a 9/10. anymore would be getting ahead of myself bigrazz

If you enjoy one-shots like me, this is a decent read. This is in the vein of Hatsukoi Limited.
School romance with fast development and nice art is a simple description of this series.
Some people may prefer 18 volumes of awkward relationships that go nowhere, with weak plot devices recycled every fifth chapter, but I don't have the time or patience for that sort of thing.
This manga is for those that like a fix of the sweetness(sometimes bittersweet) of young romance without getting sick of it.

Like most others said, I loved the first chapter and thught this manga had great potential to be a good romance manga but as soon as I see the next chapters having different main character, it really made me lose my interest. I like my mangas to have one single protagonist and dont like different guys in ddifferent chapters. So I m sadly going to drop this manga, and I really meant it when I say I m sad because I really loved the first chapter and was expecting a great story but the introduction f different new characters totally ruined the mood

I'd have to go against what everyone else was saying and say that I like that this manga has a new main character every chapter. The fist chapter was potential standing ground for a good solid story, but the main male character is too weak to hold it up. The male lead in chapter 2 seems much more interesting to me, and I like his story more than the first chapter.

If the story were to take off on chapter 1 alone, it'd be like every other cliche shounen manga out there. And I have to disagree again about the fanservice shots. I've seen worse, but I think I'll never get used to the idea of random panty shots in every chapter (but then again, I'm female). So the fanservice shots did disrupt the story and ruined the reading pace.

I do like the art though. Very pretty and detailed, but I feel like I've seen this art style before...?

So anyway
Art: 9/10
Ch.1: 5/10
Ch.2: 8/10

no real protaganist

This manga has no protaganists and each chapter is about a certain person so.... it's not my thing anyways. The first chapter is definitely amazing, a potential plot, nice art, and some humorous parts are what makes it a must read manga. However, it turned out that the second chapter is about completely different character and plot . Also, Apparently, the third chapter would also be about a new character. To tell the truth, the second chapter was pretty much suck, even though the 1st was so potential.

By the way, the description is only about the first chapter. The 2nd chapter has nothing to do with the supposedly female protagonist (the girl with androphobic problem). It likes a new story.

I've decided to drop this manga since one character/story is not really my thing.

@stuopidget rather than Anedoki, it's more like Hatsukoi Limited

since it seem like he type that doesnt have a single protagonist or any at all which isnt my type of manga, but the art is good, and story is decent

First impression! The art!

I must say the art is very much eye candy for me. I labeled it ecchi, but it isn't really blatant like Kiss x Sis; it is more in line of say Anedoki's (except I feel it's less distracting Anedoki). Along that line of thought, comparing this art to Mizuki Kawashita is the most logical since the genre seem to be the same. I can very clearly say that I like the art even more than Mizuki Kawashita to be honest. The characters are drawn in a way that when you want them just to be in their regular day clothes, they will be very pretty, yet for the fanservice shots they are very much appealing as well. Kudos to the author to be able to draw that distinctively, whereas Kawashita's work is almost always fanservicey on a regular basis. The distinction helps when you want them to focus on the story, or for when it's for comedy; this obviously will help actually make the reader semi serious about the plot.

About the story, it seems from the end of the first chapter that it will jump between characters and focus on those specific characters between chapters, so I will not post much until that is confirmed (to avoid spoilers).

If you can't tell already, I am very much in love with chapter 1. Recommended for a replacement read if you like Anedoki and looking for something from the same genre but seemingly presented like Kimikiss's manga.
