"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, slice of life shoujo manga you have ever seen. Suzume is a country bumpkin that moves to the city, and the mysterious man that helps her when she gets lost in the cement jungle happens to be her homeroom teacher. It would only sound more cliche if there was some romantic development between the two. Well, of course there is—its a romance manga, after all.
HnR is not bereft of any of the cliches that plague the shoujo genre, but it does avoid the gag-inducing pitfalls that a lot of them succumb to. However just because something avoids doing something common and boring doesn't inherently mean that it is good. What makes this series something of a gem is that it succeeds where many of its predecessors and peers have failed.
It has a compelling cast that encompasses even the most minor side characters. Almost everyone is multi-faceted and receives some level of development, even those more peripheral to the story. Shishio is an incredibly unique character in just how childish and immature given that he's a teacher, and just because he's an adult doesn't mean he's immune to making mistakes or poor decisions. If anything he exemplifies poor decision making, but that's part of being human. Suzume on the other hand is incredibly mature if not a bit clueless at times. The series is highly devoted to her development in learning what it means to love someone, because love is not something so simple as the butterflies fluttering around in your stomach when you see the person you like. Loving someone is making sacrifices, is being honest—so much more than she is initially prepared for.
Mamura, for his part, is an interesting foil to Shishio. He is not unflawed, and in fact spends the majority of the story learning how to be a more open person when he's initially so shut off from everyone else. Suzume opens his eyes to the rest of the world, and gradually he's able to be a little more honest with himself. He's not without his moments of childishness, but he matches those with moments of wisdom as well. Mamura is someone who is incredibly perceptive and observant, especially when it comes to Suzume.
In regards to the plot, we are presented with the trope of student-teacher but it's not dealt with as typically or flippantly, in fact it's incredibly realistic for a shoujo manga. Angst is not present in this story for the sake of angst, but because this is how real life works—this is what happens when two people enter a relationship when neither one of them are fully prepared for or aware of what it means to love someone when the rest of society would look down on you for it. In fact, that's never the only obstacle when you love someone. Your love also means the scrutiny of the people around you, the people who care about you and may be concerned about your relationship. The fact is, there aren't always happy endings to every love tale, most of them are bittersweet. We hurt, we learn, we move on. That is exactly the essence of this story—learning not to hang on to the past, learning that true happiness means moving forward.
The art for HnR is phenomenal, not just because it is beautiful and clean. But because every panel is expressively constructed, and each page has little tidbits in the background that give you deeper insight into the characters—all of whom are individually flawed with their own set of strengths. Even their designs are unique enough that you will not have any trouble differentiating between each character. It's clear that Yamamori-sensei went to great length to ensure each character was fleshed out in even minor ways. She is incredibly talented especially at the emotional scenes, where the dialogue and the panels so clearly convey much more emotion than what's given on the surface.
This has been a third revision for this review as I took some time after finishing the series to really contemplate its strengths, weaknesses, and how well it fulfilled its potential. A love triangle is not a popular trope, in fact it's something that most people generally tend to get annoyed at. It's overdone especially in shoujo, and so it's no surprise that many people will dislike this series because it utilizes that very cliche.
However, I contend that love triangles in other series feel contrived, superficial and serve only to drag out the plot and deliver unnecessary angst. This is not the purpose of this trope in HnR. It exists here as a integral part of the plot that serves not only to break the traditional mold of shoujo where the end pairing is obvious, but also to demonstrate an important point—moving on. Too many romance series focus on holding on to relationships when they only hurt you, whereas HnR focuses on moving on toward the future. It wasn't just a suspenseful device, although it certainly served the purpose of keeping us on pins and needles with bated breath 'til the very end, wondering who Suzume would truly end up with.
Having said all this and expressed why I am so satisfied and endorse this series so much, I feel it's only fair to admit that the end pairing was not the one I was hoping for in my heart of hearts, but it was the one that was necessary for this series to be as amazing as it is and for the characters to stay true to who they are. Yamamori has presented us with a realistic story of first love, how it comes with heartache and how you eventually learn to move on when that happens. And how you'll eventually understand what it means to be someone else's daytime shooting star. 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 and her soon-to-be homeroom teacher. Around the same time Suzume meets Mamura, a shy boy in her class who has a fear of getting too close to girls. Predictably, Suzume falls for the super young and handsome Shishio, while Mamura eventually falls for Suzume, thus leading to the formation of you classic love triangle. The story then gradually unfolds to resolve the love triangle issue and decide which boy Suzume should end up with. Nothing new, riddled with overdone clichés, yet presented in a refreshing enough manner so that the plot continues to draw you in. Average.
However, the plot DOES have some glaring problems. I cover them in my overall enjoyment of the show because I don’t want to give spoilers.
THE ART (10/10—drop dead gorgeous)
This manga is one of the few which I’ve come across with such lovely artwork. It’s simple yet elegant. The characters can have plain features while still looking captivating. Over time, the art actually continues to improve (not that I had many complaints to begin with). All in all, if your looking for a manga that is beautifully drawn, it’s hard to beat this one.
THE CHARACTERS (6.5/10—fine but needs improvement)
Let me just take the time to say that Suzume is one of the most refreshing main leads I’ve come across in a very, VERY long time (Trust me, I've read more shojo manga + romances than I can count). Her character is by far the best in this manga (7/10) while the others, although beautifully drawn, are only slightly above average (6/10). Now, why do I say this?
Suzume is refreshing because unlike the vast majority of shojo heroines, she isn’t a cry baby. In fact, she rarely cries, so when she does, it is very impactful on the readers. Another plus point is she uses her brain and tries to solve problems with logic…something which sadly can’t be said for the vast majority of female heroines. She isn’t over-the-top-pretty. In fact, she’s just average and is called plain on multiple occasions. Her personality is also kind of quirky. She loves to eat, run around, stare at stars, slaps people when they need it, and so on. In a nutshell, she’s an average girl like you or me, making her easy to relate to. However, she still isn’t great enough to be over-the-top-memorable and some of her actions ARE questionable. For example, how she claimed to be in love with Shishio and very quickly followed up being dumped by beginning to date Mamura. Either she didn’t love Shishio as much as she had claimed or she was using Mamura as an escape for her feelings towards Shishio. Both are not very appealing scenarios. Also, there is no real reason for the characters to fall in love. It just kinda...happens?
Next up, the other characters in the show primarily consist of Suzume’s school friends, her uncle, Mamura, Shishio and Shishio’s ex-girlfriend Tsubomi.
Suzume’s friends are interesting but they never really get developed as characters, with the exception of Yuyuka. It’s almost like they are just there for the sake of showing Suzume is not a loner. Mamura’s fear of girls touching him isn’t explained AT ALL until the very last chapter, though he is very cute and overall likable. Shishio felt nicely developed but his actions in the manga and his overall maturity as a “responsible adult” sometimes felt questionable. It would have been better if he truly sorted out his feelings for Suzume before rushing into a hasty break up. As for his ex-girlfriend and Suzume’s uncle, they played major roles in plot (or drama) progression, but there isn’t really too much to say regarding them. They were honestly just average and not in the story enough to be more likable characters.
OVERALL ENJOYMENT (3/10—devastation, mostly at the ending + the bonus chapter to be released in January)
I am going to discuss problems with the plot so BE WARNED. CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS.
When I first started reading this manga, despite the simplistic plot and overused clichés, I was immensely enjoying myself, to the point where I thought this manga might become one of my all-time favorite romances. I was so hyped to see them (suzume x shishio) kiss even once. However, things quickly took a turn for the worse when Shishio broke up with Suzume because of her uncle’s strong negatively towards their relationship (understandable enough). Following this incident, Suzume begins to date Mamura. I was upset about her dating someone else (even though I honestly don’t dislike Mamura) but kept reading because I expected Suzume and Shishio to eventually sort out their true feelings and get back together.
In fact, half way through the series, it began to felt like the author had completely switched to Mamura and Shishio was just out of the picture. Despite this, I still held onto the small hope that maybe the original couple I had subscribed myself to would miraculously return (the reason this manga caught my attention and I began reading it was because I wanted a good teacher-student romance). In fact, the ending of the second last chapter gave me insurmountable hope that they would reunite. I didn’t know at the time it WAS the second last chapter, and so, I was tricked into believed that Suzume and Shishio would get back together and then continue to slowly date + fall in love. (They hadn’t even kissed ONCE for crying out loud)
My hopes were crushed upon reading the final chapter.
Firstly, I’d like to point out that the ending of the manga felt abrupt. I honestly didn’t expect it to wrap up so quickly and was shocked to find out the final chapter had been translated. Secondly, there was far too much that felt unresolved. Shishio never gets to tell Suzume that the reason he lied about not liking her and broke up was because of her uncle’s pressure. Shishio simply apologizes for his past mistakes and confesses he truly loves her (it is shown Suzume is the first person that Shishio loved enough to chase after). Suzume rejects him, saying she already moved on even though she ditched Mamura and came dashing to Shishio’s side when she thought he was injured. The manga ends with Suzume returning to Mamura, she says she loves him, and it ends with suzume and Mamura kissing FOR THE FIRST TIME. No dating or challenges to face as a couple afterwards. No relationship progression beyond holding hands the entire manga with either candidate. ONE kiss after 12 volumes with the dude that wasn’t even the original focus of the manga.
As a member of the minority who was praying for Suzume and Shishio to get back together, it felt like the author had taken my own hopeful feelings and rewarding me for reading 12 volumes of her manga by slapped me in the face with them. The things is, I was already expecting Mamura to win so I was mentally preparing myself for the ending for several months now, but the feeling of having your OTP just completely shot down without even proper closure (Suzume never discovers her uncle’s meddling + she never kisses shishio even ONCE)…I have never in my entire life felt so disappointed, rejected, or shocked, nor did I expect the author to end things this way. To add salt to my wounds, I found the following announcement of a bonus chapter…
"In January a little extra chapter is going to come out in which it explains Sense’s [Shishio's] and Tsubomi’s relationship and how they GOT BACK TOGETHER. I heard some blogs reported that it will also involve Yuyuka. There is also a memorial book up for sale for HNR!”
Shishio learning from his break up with Tsubomi and moving forward was a MAJOR plot point (there was an entire arc dedicated to this) and it was also Shishio’s SINGLE moment of character development. And now I learn after being rejected by Suzume he gets back together with Tsubomi…
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!
It’s like the entire plot of the manga was just completely rendered USELESS and shishio’s entire character development had been reversed. What was the bloody point?!
The ONLY thing which prevented me from giving my enjoyment rating a zero or 1/10 is the fact that I was IN LOVE with this series when I first picked it up. Honestly, the plot is a bloody mess so I wanted to give it a 2-3/10 as well but I tried to not hate the main series for the final piece of mind-fuckery delivered by the bonus chapter.
SUMMARY OF REVIEW
Plot: 5/10 (very, VERY generous)
FINAL RATING: 6/10
-The art is drop dead gorgeous
-Suzume is a very likable lead who is NOT generic or a cry baby.
-Good, steady progression until roughly half way through the series
-Original pairing is tossed aside in a way that makes suzume x Shishio shippers feel worthless and underwhelmed.
-Half way through the manga the main pairing completely changes to suzume x Mamura
-Ending feels abrupt and not fully resolved
-Characters could be more fleshed out (especially Suzume’s friends)
-Bonus chapter renders the plot and Shishio’s character development completely useless.
RECOMMENDATION (yes/no): Yes, for those who don’t care too much about pairings and those who like “light” amounts of romance [BUT just know that there are better romances out there]. NOT recommended for people not into romance, for those who like “heavy” romance which progresses beyond just holding hands, for those specifically searching for a student x teacher romance, or for those with a tendency to get attached to first male interest introduced into a romance.
Similar manga (student x teacher) to fill the void: Sensei Kunshu is worth a shot :)
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 different by adding a few tweaks on it, but then in the end, there still isn't anything much to say.
The story started off pretty good in the first few chapters. It tells the reader about Suzume, a country girl moving to the city where she made some good friends and experienced a few times heartbreaks. I can't say much about the story without spoiling it, but the manga is really good in the beginning. It does not only focus on the love triangle between Suzume and her teacher, Shishio, and her classmate, Mamura.
Everything was nicely paced, until later at the middle, where it kind of gives off the feeling that it's rushed.
One thing that might appeal you to read this manga though, might be the pretty and clean art. Yamamori Mika-sensei's drawing style changes from the first few chapters until the end. You could clearly see the changes, but it's not a bad thing. She gets better at drawing the characters, and at some point, managed to make me feel frustrated out of trying to decide who between the two main love interests, and the rest of the characters, looks better in terms of appearance.
Although the characters may seem beautiful, the main characters do lack some character development. This, in my opinion, resulted in the somehow.. unrealistic (due to the lack of a better word) ending of the manga. Besides that though, the main characters; Suzume, Shishio and Mamura have nothing too special about them.
What made this manga different from other shoujo mangas out there may be the fact that Suzume is a strong girl who doesn't cry all the time. There is also none of those 'flowery' scenes that normally appear in shoujo. And Suzume has her own flaws, like the rest of the characters. Even though she's not perfect, messes up and falls, she still has the courage to get back up and try her best.
Shishio and Mamura are both also good characters. However, there is so little character development with both of them. Shishio let what happened to him and his previous lover happen again, and Mamura, although he did change, he lacks a good background. Not only that, Mamura lacks a good enough background story to explain his misogynist behavior. Since he was the main focus for a love interest in the beginning of the manga, Shishio had much more chemistry when compared to Mamura. Some scenes in the manga may be a bit awkward due to the lack of development and chemistry between the characters.
I really enjoyed reading the first few chapters of HnR, but in the middle, I kind of lost the 'feeling' and everything started to crumble for me. Here, let me make it clear for you; I am not one of those hardcore shippers and I am neutral at this so I am perfectly fine with what Suzume decides to do and etc, as long as it has a good chemistry to it. HnR is the first shoujo manga that I read after a long time trying to avoid the genre, since the art and characters are quite nice, I'd give an overall rating of HnR a 7/10. But some scenes are just unrealistic and I have a very high expectation on this manga. Sadly, it was not satisfying enough. Looks like I'll have to resign from that genre again for some time. read more
YO ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE MY LAST REVIEW WOOOOOOOOO
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 manga so more DRAMA and INNER TURMOIL WOOOOOO Choices man.
It's not complex and it's linear for the most part. The ending will satisfy 50% of the shipping fanbase, as it usually does. I was a part of that 50% this time around.
tl;dr_____linear, drama, Shoujo stuff man, GOOD shoujo stuff that any Shoujo reader alike will indulge in! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
= Art = 10
- Uhhhhh ITS GORGEOUS
GORGEOUS and extremely consistent -
= Character = 9
- Heroine Suzume as well as her two suitors have 'exponential' growth. She has inner turmoil about feelings and conflicts inside that keep her from doing what she wants because MORALS MAN. Teacher has one too cuz OMG she's 16... and Mamuraaaaa is the cliche of OMGAWD girls ew COOTIES to GIVE ME SOME OF DAT ONIGRI SUGAR ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°).
Not one character is hateable (the WHOLE time unless you ship one way then that's fair game). But none are annoying for lengthy periods of time to where their character defines ANNOYANCE.
tl;dr_____you should read what I just wrote it took me so much thought
= Enjoyment = 10
New Manga by Yamamori called Tsubaki-Chou Lonely Planet.
Hirunaka so Good
It's one of those I MUST CAMP FOR UPDATES good.
And you love it so much you end up camping for her new manga because IT UPDATES SO SLOOOOOW.
= Overall =
If anyone reads this, tell me if you like my informal way of writing the review in comparison to my older ones from a while back (maybe two years???). And do tell me if this made you want to read the manga lol
Thank you~! Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ
Don't Die read more
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.
Both are really cute in the sense that the girl is stuck in a love triangle and is constantly getting confused about her own feelings > <
It starts off with the girl liking one of the guys but got "rejected" due to certain circumstances but the guy regrets his choice soon after > <
However, by then the other guy already confess and both of them started going out > <
The really enjoyable part is that you'll really not know who to root for because both guys are really cute! >w< ♡
If you're looking for some lighthearted romance, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride should definitely be a consideration. Both series involves the awkward meeting of the main girl and guy. Their relationship stands out as awkward as neither are similar. But throughout the course of the series, they begin to know and understand each other. While Ao Haru Ride lacks the subtext of teacher/student relationships, there is a character in that series who has a crush on their teacher. Both series also focuses a bit on the circumstances at school whether it'd be thinking about the future, forming relationships, and tackling against difficult obstacles. Recommended for fans of romantic comedy with a charming story.
"It's almost as if Murao got her own spin off in Hirunaka no Ryuusei." Pretty much this. Suzume's design and personality are very similar to Murao and so is Shishio to Tanaka-sensei.
Both manga are love triangles set in a high school setting. Both protagonists are beautiful and unique and are very different from the normal shoujo female lead. They learn how to love and grow as characters while making friends and experiencing heartbreak.
Both Ao Haru Ride and Hirunaka no Ryuusei have a very similar plot in which the main character is involved in a love triangle. At first, there is mutual feelings between the main girl and the current main guy she is with, but due to circumstances, the main guy had to leave her which leaves the main girl heartbroken and in confusion. Along the way, she would encounter new relationships whether its friendship, rivalry, or love. After spending time together with the second main guy, he would confess to the main girl leaving her with feelings of uncertainty. Throughout the series, it would leave the readers unable to decide who to root for to be with the main girl due to both of the guys having their own good points.
If you are one of those people who love a love-triangle type of romance story, then these two are perfect for you. Both main characters in these manga are stock with two guys (the one guy she truly loves but she can’t be with him and the other guy who is always there for her and patiently waiting that in soon time, will also be loved by her like the first).
Both manga also have the student-teacher relationship though it is not the focus in Ao Haru Ride unlike in Hirunaka no Ryuusei.
But one thing is for sure, both of these are enjoyable to read and you will find yourself wondering as to whom the girl will end up to. (づ｡◕‿‿◕｡)づ
Aoharaido and Hirunaka no ryuusei are similar because in both mangas we see some cliches of manga shoujo but is still a very good manga. In both mangas we see comedy, drama and romance, also we see cute characters. Altough i think that in HnR have more comedy and a more charismatic main female character. I like so much both mangas, also the drawing in both mangas is so nice. Very recommended!
It's almost as if murao got her own spin off in Hirunaka no Ryuusei. She likes her teacher but another classmate likes her. Except aya kominato and mamura are pretty different from each other
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 majority of fans) I prefer TNA to HNR because I can relate more to the characters, but both are good reads and if you are a shoujo lover you don´t wanna miss these!
It's all about a girl's first love and second love and how she struggles between the two. These two are very similar in many ways (in which I won't spoil anything) Although Kyousuke isn't like Shishio's personality, they both lead on the MC a lot and are close to her. Mamura is very similar to Miyake, in which they blush a lot and cherish the heroine.
Tonari no Atashi and Hirunaka no Ryuusei are two high quality shoujo manga series. The two are great series for first time (shoujo) manga readers. Although Hirunaka no Ryuusei tends to be more light hearted, they share similarities with a love triangle (did not see that coming) and older "first" love interests.
These two manga have a love triangle with an underdog that is as much as popular/loved in the fandom as the main hero. Both are really great reads that start as typical shoujo but then slowly deviate from the usual shoujo tropes. If you like one you'll surely enjoy the other.
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.
Love triangles, arts, everything is similar. However the main characters are different from each other. In Hirunaka no Ryuusei the girl is a bit dense about her feelings while in Mairunovich the girl is more outgoing.
They aren't carbon copies of each other, but they have the same vibe about them. Some characters are similar to each other, for example; the "frienemy" character in both of them. The heroines are both somewhat plain and they don't know a lot about love/makeup/girlishness/etc. as well.
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.
Characters, art and plot are similar - they're both easy reads with fun, realistic and loveable characters. The art is very similar too. However, unlike Hirunaka no Ryuusei, Horimiya doesn't have a love triangle. Because of that, there's probably also a little more 'drama' in Hirunaka no Ryuusei, but they're both otherwise pretty mellow.
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.
Finished reading Heroine Shikkaku but have been left craving more? It's a good thing Hirunaka no Ryuusei exists!
Both our heroines in these two shōjos endure the adversities of a love triangle. While Heroine Shikkaku follows the complex romances between high school students, Yamamori Mika, mangaka of Hirunaka no Ryuusei, spices things up by daringly making one of the male leads the heroine's homeroom teacher.
When reading Hirunaka no Ryuusei, your Heroine Shikkaku cravings will be satisfied in no time at all.
