Oh, where should I start?! This is one of the sweetest manga I've read in a while, and after reading Voiceful - which I'll review later - and feeling disappointed, this is just what I needed to perk myself up a bit! There are some good things and bad things about the storyline itself, but the bad is overweighed by the good.

The plot is a little bit weak to start off with, as the main character goes to a school introduction day and ends up using her guide's handkerchief to sort out a scrape. The guide then suggests giving it back once she gets into the school - something the main character was unsure about, but agrees to, working very hard to get in solely to give back the item. Whilst this is very sweet, it is obviously not very realistic to go through all that trouble for a handkerchief, but it is enough to get the girls to interact together and set them down the yuri path.

What really carries this manga are its characters. The main character, Chika, is very lively and energetic, and she thinks more with her heart than with her head. Of course, that is if she's thinking about her actions at all. Because she's very happy and outgoing, she gets depressed easily too; something her friend Akiho has to deal with quite often. The other main character, Haruna, is very kind and gentle at the start, but then she becomes cold and aloof to Chika. All because she has a secret. What is this secret? You'll have to read it to find out!

The art is very cute and in a pleasant, refreshing style. The art on the cover is not as good as the art on the inside; this art style - in my opinion - is one best expressed in black and white, though I appreciate the colour pages a lot.

This is a brilliant, though slightly flawed gem of a manga.

The illustrations are excellent and the story is moving.

One Problem. Seven Seas is having Rights issues with the subsequent volumes, so it is currently unknown if vol 2, let alone 3, is going to be released.

I truly hope that the rights problems are overcome. After all, I want to read the next part of the story.

HASH(0x870ed7ec) out of 5 stars Very Sweet ... Recommended, especially for Teens 18 Feb. 2008
By Restatement90 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very sweet story. Focus is more on emotional, rather than overt physical expression of love. Manga swings back and forth between comic and serious moments - and this works! - keeps the plot from being too absurd or too melancholy. Characters are drawn a bit stereotypically - younger clumsy underclassman drawn to cool, beautiful upperclassman ... so nothing too original here.

On the whole, this is enjoyable light yuri fare. Fans of Maria-sama ga miteru will really enjoy this story.

HASH(0x870edb1c) out of 5 stars Sweet story...but not too sweet 17 Nov. 2008
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Basic plot - girl falls in love with girl, decides to go to the same school, they meet, there is some issues, they get along untill volume two. Dun-dun-DUN!
Sweet romance, nice artwork, characters who seem to be a tad more complex then normal. Frankly I want to see if there is a volume two coming out. If there is I will grab it up. While it may seem a tad slow and bland it is still for 16 and up.

HASH(0x86dfa060) out of 5 stars Not a bad manga but not really great 26 Feb. 2015
By L.R. Ring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not a bad manga but not really great, either. Then again I'm not into romance stories, they always seem so cliche and predictable. Especially manga.
