This beloved classic title has endured the test of time. With two live-action dramas and now an anime, it is definitely a must read shoujo title.

While the artwork is not incredibly good, the story more than makes up for it. It's a farily long series which was never completed due to the sudden death of the mangaka. The anime series hopes to conclude with the original intended ending.

Kotoko and Irie's challenges with each other are always fun and even suspenseful as the reader tries to anticipate what new behavior Irie's going to show Kotoko as their relationship blossoms. Hilarious supporting characters make this title read more

Both girls (Kotoko in Itazura na Kiss & Chiwa in Hapi Mari) aren't very smart, tend to cry a lot, and act clumsy. Both guys (Irie in Itazura na Kiss & Hokuto in Hapi mari) are important to a company and act all cocky/rude against the girl, and in both stories the girl tries to make the guy love her.
A girl lives with a guy because her house was destroyed.
