The story follows Chino, your average young girl. All she wants is to fall in love & have a wonderful boyfriend to spend time with. She ends up getting more than she bargained for when her father brings home the wild Hyo- a boy who grew up in the wilderness away from all humans. Claiming that Hyo saved his life, Chino's father also claims that all Hyo wanted was to meet Chino after seeing a photo of her. Misunderstandings abound as Hyo gets used to the modern world & while Chino gets accustomed to her rather unconventional suitor. However will Hyo go running as soon as his family discovers him?
This really was a cute & on occasion, a surprisingly mature manga. As with all of Ando's work, the artwork here is gorgeous. I really enjoyed seeing the interactions between Chino & Hyo, which were pretty cute. Also enjoyable were the inevitable misunderstandings that would come from a wild boy returning to civilization. I was expecting for this to be a cutesy-cute manga, but I was surprised when the manga later took a somewhat serious tone with a new character that was introduced later on in the manga. (Although after reading Arisa I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised, although the drama in this manga is nothing as serious as Arisa's level of drama.)
People who want a more serious read or something with tons of action will probably want to avoid this book, but ultimately this is a pretty pleasant read. It's cutesy, but manages to keep from getting overdosing on it. Fans of Kitchen Princess will absolutely love this, as it's very similar to this work.
I think I like Kitchen Princess better, but it was ten books long and this one is only three. This book is definitely funny. I smiled several times during the duration it took me to read this book, and actually found myself laughing. It isn't you average love story, and I think that's what I liked about it best. It's unique and different.
The description on the back reads:
Chino wants what every teen girl wants: to fall in love! But when it finally happens, it's not exactly what she expected. Her father, a great explorer, brings home his latest find: Hyo, a boy who was raised in the jungle. Hyo is completely uncivilized, but he's also super cute- and completely wild at heart. Can Chino really be falling for wild child Hyo?
I enjoyed this book, though some of her other ones I've enjoyed better, but this one is very cute. Although I thought that there was a lot going on. It was bam, bam, bam, right after each other. There didn't seem to be enough pages! However if you are interested in shoujo manga, this is a definite get. I really enjoyed this series and thought very highly of it.
This book is nothing like Arisa. Arisa is dark, and mysterious. Wild at Heart is cute and funny. So please don't think that they are alike. I enjoyed both series, however neither of them are in the same genre.
