"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

So, while I was searching for Shoujo manga I hadn't read yet, which is hard to find, I came across this manga. I wasn't really expecting much, by the time I read the manga there were only just 3 chapters released. But now, having 13 chapters I completely changed my opinion of this manga.
It's awesome!

Ok, so well, this is not like the most original story ever written, but for a shoujo manga it's not too cliche. The story follows a young girl who lives in the countryside of Japan. While she enjoys food that comes from Tokyo she never imagined she ends up living in 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: Strobe Edge
The feel of the stories and the art are pretty similar. both are very enjoyable 
reportRecommended by beckaleck
Manga: Tsubaki-chou Lonely Planet
Both series are written by the same author, Yamamori Mika. As such, expect similarity with the style of their storytelling and artwork. The main female protagonist of both series has to move into a new environment and adapts with their lifestyle. Throughout the series, they build connections with others and love blooms between certain characters. Recommended for fans interested in lighthearted shoujo.

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.
