Have you ever had a dream you wanted to pursue but didn't because you felt that you would fail, or it wasn't practical enough for you, and your parents stated that they highly disapprove of it? Are you in the mood to read a manga that'll bring you joy each chapter? Are you interested in the cutest couple ever? Are you sick of love triangles and just want something straight forward? Are you over shoujo mangas having a bit too much drama?

If you said yes to any of the questions above or are interested in reading read more

As most manga with less than 20 chapters, events and happenings move at a considerably fast pace that leaves you struggling to keep up. In the story Hitoribocchi wa Samishikute, there is evidence of that. The relationship between Shio and Nao develops too quickly and thus gives off a sense of unrealism. However, their friendship and ties of love are very sweet. Hand in hand, they both run towards their dreams, overcoming and obstacles together.

Shio is first portrayed a quiet girl who her classmates think ill of. She dreams of becoming a singer and writes all her feelings into songs. read more

Have you ever felt something that you wanted to do even if everyone was against it? Well that's what this manga was about

The story is very motivational and inspirational it shows you the reader that if you have a dream then you should strive it inspires you and it also has a lot of romance in it that leaves your hear warm when you finish it.

The characters are your very typical shoujo romance characters, but I will say that they fit this story very well and that even if you dislike the weak girl and delinquent guy combo you should still give it a try.

People need to READ THIS MANGA NOW!!!!!
The story is not your typical popular guy loves geek girl story. It involves 2 people who both want to follow their dreams. Together, they overcome obstacles and realize their own feelings for each other. I only wish there was a sequel

Manga: Kimi ni Todoke
Both Sunako and Shio are secluded from their classmates and experienced being bad-mouthed around school until Nao and Kazehaya helped them to make friends. Both Nao and Kazehaya are friendly and free thus helped the girls to become bright.

Manga: Horimiya
I just finished Hitoribocchi wa Samishikute and really enjoyed it. in Hitoribocchi wa Samishikute and Horimiya there is a girl/guy with glasses that people ignore. In both these characters change. both were sagoi <3

Similarities: main girl that wants to sing but thinks about herself as plain and the boy that helps her obtain her dream

Manga: Orange Marmalade
These mangas arn't that similar. I am making this recommendation because both i really enjoyed and both made me cry. If u enjoy shoujo manga or want to give it a try i think u should try one of these mangas :)

Manga: 24 Colors: Hatsukoi no Palette
The main characters in both mangas are interested in something and for this they fall in love with the guy (Hitoribocchi wa Samishikute has more drama archiving it's passion than 24 colors) But I still recommend this two cute love stories.
This two mangas have the same feeling to it.
The art in both is beautiful (not everyone might agree).
