Tears of a Lamb reminded me of Kodocha as I was reading it, although Kodocha in in elementary and Tears of a Lamb is in high school. Both have an energetic and kind of silly girl with pigtails who bothers a guy until they become friends. The guy comes across as scary to everybody, but the guys in the class idolize him. As the guy gets to know the girl better, he realizes that she isn't what she seems, and becomes curious as to her past, which she reveals to him over time. He falls in love with her, but she's kind of oblivious. Meanwhile, he has his own problems to deal with.
The romance in Tears of a Lamb is a bit slower than in Kodocha, I think, but both are pretty sweet.
They're both created by the same author and artist, V.B. Rose is very heartwarming and is about a wedding store that is run and managed by 2 good lucking guys. The main character is strong, cheerful, and can be dependant on but is sometimes oblivious to the things around her.The art is very cute and they are touching and sad moments in the story just like Tears of a lamb. V.B. Rose is incredibly cute~ A must read.
As for Tears of a lamb, tears of a lamb is lighthearted sometimes but it stays on the plot. There are many jokes and funny moments but you never forget to sypthazies the main character after discovering her past. Tears of a lamb is about a girl who wants to go into her classmates house who is a boy and he lives all alone, the boy constantly rejects her because of a secret that he is embarrassed about. As for the main character she wants to enter his house to retrieve something that is linked with her past.
I've gotten to the point that I realize EVERY SINGLE ROMANCE IS SOMEHOW LIKE FRUITS BASKET. Maybe it's because Fruits Basket has so many characters living different lives? Anyway Tears of a Lamb is a very emotional and heart-warming story just like Fruits Basket. Both deal with complicated family lives, heart-breaking romance, and over coming the difficulties in life. Both have a hint of comedy and if you like one you'll probably like the other.
