Forced to enroll in school one month late after recovering from a serious illness, Harutaro is doing his best to remain optimistic about the entire situation. The other students are working hard to make Haru feel welcome—especially his chubby, loveable pal, Shota; however, Kai Majima, President of the Manga Club and all-around hard case, seems to be the one person intent on making Harutaro's school life a living nightmare.

I don’t normally like slice of life series. I really don’t. If I want to see a bunch of people I have nothing in common with talk, I’d follow around some random group sitting together at a lunch table for a few hours before they caught on that I might be stalking them and then need to run away.
But it would seem there are some slice of life series I can get behind and Flower of Life is one of them. The reason? The mains are manga nerds and even the non-totally manga nerds have some of that in them too. Of course, this would read more

It's hard to put into words just how cute this manga is. It's sweet an innocent and absolutely adorable. The characters all have very likable and realistic traits. The artwork manages to convey an amazing amount of personality. Like with most comics/films/etc the story itself isn't dramatically new or innovative, but the telling is where it shines. This manga makes everyday normal interactions fun to read about. It really draws you in and makes you care about what's going on.

Art and style were similar enough that I thought they were by the same mangaka. Both are school life slice-of-life dramas, with comedy and tragedy and everyday life events. Focus on several students, rather than just one or two. The events are fairly realistic, instead of the idealized happenings usually see in the school life shoujo genre. Events are seen mostly through the eyes of male students. Don't focus that much on romance, though there is a noticeable amount of sexual dialog.

Antique Bakery is done by the same artist/writer as Flower of Life and is also similar in style. Unlike some of the authors other works, these two pieces really stand out when it comes to characters and overall plot. Antique Bakery in many ways is like Flower of Life once it grows up a little.
