"You're my daytime shooting star."

Falling in love has been likened many times to being on a rollercoaster—it has its ups, its downs, its twists and turns. But an amusement park ride always comes to an end eventually, then you're left to wait in a long line before you get the opportunity to ride again. That metaphor is strangely appropriate, especially for this manga. It's not just about falling in love the first time—it's about picking up the pieces when the first time doesn't work, and eventually learning how to fall in love again.

The synopsis is deceptively simplistic in that it reads like any other school, read more

For those of you not interested in reading a rant or all the nitty gritty details, skip to the very bottom. I make a complete summary and offer if this manga is recommended or not. This review is spoiler free until I discuss the final segment (enjoyment level). With that being said…

PLOT (5/10—average…and that’s being generous)

The story is relatively simple. Country girl Suzume moves to the city for the first time to live with her uncle, thus leaving everything she was comfortable with behind. She gets hopelessly lost in the city, only to be rescued by Shishio, her uncle’s friend read more

Okay, for those of you out there who are still trying to make a decision whether to read this or not, let me tell you one thing; this shoujo is not what you think it is. At least for me, definitely not.

Right, now that that's said, let's proceed.

I have finished this manga, and there really is nothing very unique about it. Also, the title 'Daytime Shooting Star' has little to do with the actual story itself. The plot chosen is actually a bit too cliche in my opinion, the forbidden love between the student and teacher, only that the author, Yamamori Mika-sensei, successfully made it read more

I LOVE this series and Yamamori's art so much I use it as inspiration for any development of my own (which you can see on IG @kim_the_one_and_only ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°))


= Story = 8
- Country girl Suzume moves to the city to live with her uncle and meets mysterious man! Who is he??? Will it be Him or the Other Guy??? Find out on the next episode of Dragon Ball Z! DERNUR DERNUR DER DERNUR DER YOU GET IT. -

The story itself is like a Shoujo manga, but in this case it's an 80+ chapter Shoujo read more

Manga: Ao Haru Ride
Both are high school romances where the main protagonist is stuck in a love triangle between one guy who she loves but can't quite have and another guy who she doesn't notice until he confesses, and both love interests are so damn likable that you can't help but root for both of them. If you seek the guilty pleasure of shoujo rom-com cliches, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride are chock-full of adorable moments that will make your heart squeal.

Manga: Tonari no Atashi
These manga share some similarities: - The typical love triangle where the heroine is in love with the "1st guy" and later meets "2nd guy" (aka underdog) which is her classmate. - The hero is dark haired and is someone close to her (neighbour/teacher) and the underdog has blonde hair and has a tendency to blush a lot around the heroine. - Both leading boys are very likeable to the point you just want them to end in a happy threesome. - The main reason why these two manga are so alike is because near the end some situations between the characters are very similar. Personally (unlike the  read more

Manga: Mairunovich
Both are considered classic shoujo with love triangles and relationships. Throughout both series, the main female protagonist learns what it's like to develop a relationship with others. Through trial and error, they learn about the essence of love. There is growth in both series as the main female protagonist develops and becomes more confident in herself and around others. I recommend both series for anyone interested for a bite of innocent shoujo.

Manga: Horimiya
Both series are known for their slice of life elements and slow pace in storytelling. Despite this, they also have a colorful cast of characters and romance that develops subtly over the course of the story. Both series also adapts relationships of different nature that are explored. And with these relationships, we can see a good amount of characterization focused on the main protagonists. Recommended for fans of lighthearted drama.

Manga: Heroine Shikkaku
Two guys after one girl (for the most part)! Both guys in both stories have contrasting personalities - good foils of each other! Also, there was a small collaboration between the two briefly. Both of these manga kind of have the same feel to them. Both stories bring the same kind of tugging at your heart to make you feel like the female lead herself and what her struggles are within the story and in her love(s?). And both have easy on the eyes art. Pretty boys and pretty girls.

Manga: Kiss yori mo Hayaku
Both heroines are in love with their teachers, but Kiss Yori mo Hayaku is a lighter read, and it starts with the student and teacher already together.
