"A genius actress has just awoken!!"

Suzuki Hikaru, Hoshino Sayaka, Itou Chihiro and Suzuki Shinobu are all new students who have just entered the same middle school. Sayaka is a shy girl who secretly loves acting. Hikaru is an energetic boy who loves basketball. Incidentally, he shares the same last name with Shinobu, a popular rich boy who would be perfect if not for his rotten personality. Chihiro is Hikaru's childhood friend and has long had a crush on him.

On the day of the opening ceremony, Hikaru happens to witness Sayaka acting out the lines of a drama on the rooftop and is instantly captivated. Upon seeing Hikaru getting along with Sayaka, Chihiro's chest begins to ache. When Shinobu sees this, he is overcome by a strange emotion and his heart starts beating faster... Unbeknownst to the four, this is the beginning of their magnificent love story; one that would last years to come.

Suki desu Suzuki-kun! is not just your typical shoujo-romance manga; throw in basketball, theatre and friendship and you have just what you need to enjoy this manga. It's very captivating that it makes you want to read more. The romance is classified as 'cute' and it's very true.

Great character development is also a good thing in this manga. I honestly liked the secondary pairing(Chihiro x Shinobu) better than the main but both pairs have a great path on their romance. Ikeyamada Go-sensei doesn't fail on making me anticipate for the next release.

I may sound biased because I love reading stories like this but read more

the story is nice, but because the updates on the internets are slow i lose track of where I am and somehow forget this story existed. (I blame my long hiatus from Anime/manga)

But this is a must-read for any shoujo manga lovers. The characters are sweet and the story is just oh so full of sweetness.

A shy girl meets social guy is always great when they perfectly meet each other. A hint of jealousy is always needed to test their feelings and another pair of lovebirds will always make their adventure to young love more enjoyable.

So full moe right now when reading this read more

Both mangas are about girls dreaming to be an actress, and have great potential that can be further developed so they can both make it big. Both girls also receive support from their (first) love interests to work further to achieve her dream.

Both (first) love interests are also into some sort of sport and are dreaming big in order to match up with the girl. They do each have differences, as in Cat Street she already started off as an actress, but due to an  read more

Manga: Waltz no Ojikan
I don't know why but I find the same fluffy atmosphere in both mangas when both main girl characters who dont look so pretty at first find a talent and there's a guy who supports both of them. (then they both fall in love)

-One has dancing the other has acting
-Suki desu suzuki-kun is way longer
-suki desu Suzuki-kun has two couples while I'm not sure if the other two dance partners like each other

Manga: Strobe Edge
Strobe Edge and Suki desu Suzuki-kun!! are shoujo manga with prominent relationship developments. At the core of the story, we have a main female protagonist who attracts the attention of main male characters. Romance is evident as the story progresses and we learn more about them. There is also drama that reaches to climatic points. Expect both friendships and rivalries to develop between the main characters. Anyone who is interested in shoujo should give these two titles a try for their more complicated drama.
