Synopsis

Anna Koshiro has been friends with two handsome guys, Sou and Hinata, since childhood. She has a crush on Enamoto, a first-year high-schooler, but she has difficulty finding a boyfriend as everyone always wonders about the relationship between Anna and Sou and Hinata.

One day, she goes to Sou's house and finds out that Sou has a girlfriend. She is not jealous, but she feels like she has lost him. On the other hand, Sou's girlfriend is upset about how Anna comes into Sou's room so freely and asks Sou not to let Anna into his room again. However, Sou disagrees and ends their relationship. Anna decides to overcome the odds and confesses to her crush. Enamoto accepts, but upon finding out that Anna has a boyfriend, Sou gets upset.

On their first date, Anna finds herself in her room with Enamoto. She tells him about something that happened in the past: She once had a chipmunk named Coco, and when it died, Sou and Hinata brought her another chipmunk and telling her it was Coco. Her mother had told her to treasure Coco as the two of them had used their own money to buy Anna another chipmunk.

Enamoto then shocks Anna by asking which one of them she likes. After she replies that the one she likes is him, Enamoto tries to kiss her but Anna gets scared. She wants to call for Hinata and Sou but she can't. They both suddenly appear after Anna kicks Enamoto away. Of course, she cannot continue dating him after what happened.
Although she can't get what Enamoto asked out of her head, Anna is sure that the she will never be anything more than friends with Hinata and Sou. But what will happen when Sou confesses his love to Anna and asks her to go out with him?

Unless you are stuck in work like me i cant honestly say that this manga is worth the read. The main characters Anna is really, really stupid and because of this the story just keeps on running on the same tracks all the time.
Heres pretty much how every storyline has gone down so far -

1. Something happens
2. Anna misunderstands what just happened
3. She panics and does something ridicilously stupid
4. Anna cries
5. Somebody tells her she misunderstood.
6.Apology by somebody to someone.
7. She forgets everything she learned and simply does stupid things again.

The characters are not very well designed either. I think this manga is read more

the plot is so unoriginal in my point of view it`s the same idea of love triangle between childhood friends that was presented in different things

the characters are like all shoujo mangas but at the same time each one has it`s own specialty like sou who is always angry loves pokemon so much and hinata loves painting , anna is also a little different on how she looks at everything ,she is the type of character who is always confused about what she is doing

( i have to say that usually i hate this type if mangas when the heroine is read more

After reading much of the manga (as far as my manga app has posted for now), I got on MyAnimeList (my most trusted source) to see if they have made it into an anime. Out of curiosity, I looked at the reviews. I was actually surprised to see what horrible reviews this manga had.

This is my first review. After seeing the horrible reviews, I made an account right away to write this.
I have made anime reviews in the past via YouTube, and I generally know what to look at, so it isn't like I am some amateur.

Nonetheless, let us begin.

Absolutely amazing manga. I love it from start to ummm well it's ongoing so I love it from start to recently updated chapter! It's nice to read about childhood friends, love and triangles. I liked it a lot in particular for the characters. Each character is special to me in some different way and they each have their own little trait which you can't help but love. Even the side characters are awesome :D Definitely recommend this manga. The art is pretty good too. Everything about it is great has me hooked!

both are about 3 childhood friends -two guys and a girl- and the love triangle between them

Manga: Love-Berrish!
It's not just because they both have the same mangakas but it's because both are a really fantastic read. Love Berrish, just like Stardust Wink is also a romance-genred stories and both makes you want to giggle from the happenings. X3

Try Love Berrish! too, you won't regret it! :D

Manga: Tonari no Koigataki: Wagamama Icchan Yowamushi Hiro-kun
3 childhood friends... 2 hot guys and a girl who doesn't have girl friends since she's always around the 2 popular guys... romance ensues between the childhood friends.. enough said...

Manga: Heroine Shikkaku
A girl is childhood friends with a guy and likes him, but then a really nice girl with dark hair and glasses comes along and becomes an 'obstacle'. Also the main character has two main guys that she has to choose between, and there are other love triangles.

Stardust Wink is a bit more cliche that Heroine Shikkaku.

Manga: Kirarin☆Revolution
Both are about a cheerful girl with long orange hair who is really close with 2 guys, but isn't dating either. At first she thinks she likes one, but then realizes she actually likes the other too/more. They reminded me a lot of each other.
Hiroto=Sou
Seiji=Hinata
Kirari=Anna
Stardust Wink is a lot more focused on the romance though, while Kirarin Revolution is mostly just about being an idol.
