Mhm. Most of my reviews tend to be "overly biased", so I'm gonna try to be as un-biased as possible for this one.

Story [ 8/10 ]

The story was great. Creativity and realism were both included, to my delight. Although, some people prefer anime that are totally UN-realistic and off the walls, so if you prefer an anime where there's a meeting with fairies, or the person that falls in love with the heroine just so "happens" to be a wealthy, perfect person, I don't suggest expecting too much from this. Although... The two main love rivals were both pretty popular, so I have nothing to read more

This story is really simple yet very cute and amazing , it's a great manga and it really proves to show anyone who is shy and lives inside their shell and can't get a friend , you can actually get a friend if you try to stand up and reach out to others even if you happen to only get internet friends but due in time you can still get real life friends.
The art in this manga was really adorable and I loved it , the only thing I didn't like was the backgrounds. The backgrounds were really simple and sort of plain and I read more

Koko Ni Iru Yo is an anime which on the surface seems like yourshoujo but well to be honest is a jewel in it's genre and a manga to be read!


The story is basic and easy to follow. It seems like your typical shoujo manga in its first chapters being based on a shy and extremly timid girl named sumino with little confidence or self esteem. Sumino confides in her online blog and her 2 online friends "BlackRabbit" and "Mega Pig" in troubled times. Sumino feels alone and worthless till popular boy Hinata confesses his love for her one day, with this in mind Sumino read more

Sumino, Hikage is unreasonably and stereotypically shy and (unfortunately) she is the heroine.
Honestly, why are depressing and almost mute heroines all the rage now?

I swear, if I see a chick like that, I'd do an about-face. And if she keeps comparing me to objects, like say... The sun. I'd seriously question her mental stability.

Not what happens in this lukewarm story, in fact, she almost started worshiping the other two main characters (dude, seriously?) and absurdly enough, they both fall for her.

What message does that send?

That chicks have completely zero personality or that guys like weird, fanatic chicks?

Well, thank God I'm under neither read more

Story: 8
It went with the generic "loner" story but it never went over board with it and the author constructed it so that everyone could relate to it a little.

Art: 9
The art is fantastic, it really is. It's ridiculously cute but not overboard with the eyes. It's quite consistent the whole way through and Sumino is the cutest girl character in a shoujo manga.

Character: 8
Yeah, it's not too bad. Sumino has been developed quite well whilst the two guys didn't get enough chapters to create that deeper connection between the reader and them.

Enjoyment: 9
I enjoyed it, I really did. This was one shoujo story read more

This story starts out a little too similar to Kimi ni Todoke for my preference. However, as the story progressed it was an encouraging story of the heroine "blooming" into a wonderful person. I liked the art and the characters were deep and cheerful, which is always good. Overall, it was very good but not one of my favorites.

another story about a shy and lonely girl, although it is short (5 volumes) it is a cute and sweet manga to read.

it was very sweet and a bit dramatic, but i enjoyed every chapter of it. although it could have been a little funnierthan it was. the storyline was easy to understand and the character development was good. the characters are like other shoujo characters except instead of an energetic, peppy main character we have a shy and timid girl.

overall it was a good manga to read in my spare time.

This manga was truly fantastic!!! I was moving and heart warming! I am truly happy that I stumbled upon it! This is a truly relate-able story for many. You really feel compassion for Sumino and hope that she makes friends and won't forever be alone!

I also like how the love blossomed in the story and that it wasn't too overwhelming so that Sumino wouldn't be able to handle it. The story stays true to focusing on Sumino, like it should be.

This was truly a delightful stroy and it really gives you a perspective on how it feels to be all alone, with no one read more

Sure the story was typical and the main character wasn't that amazing but this was still a super cute manga. I really enjoyed it and I thought the art was just so adorable and really suited the whole premise. The sunflower imagery and all the cute little avatars and pictures just amplified everything. I think this is going to be one of those manga's that I will read again, later on because it is just that cute and an overall really solid story.

The title translates to i am here! I never knew about this book until i found it at my locak library. It was definitly worth reading. The main character is one of those chracters who are just plain quite, like most anime chracters they sit in the back of the classroom next to the window. Now the main chracter has a blog,she has 2 friends mega pig and a cat like guy(real sorry i forgot the name), one day a kid in school goes up to her and sais i've been watching you,but in a good way.
Suddenly she become's a little more of the person read more
