This is such an enjoyable manga in every way possible. The story is lighthearted, but not superficial nor dumb; it is a typical shoujo manga that should satisfy any fan of the genre, yet there's still a freshness to it that won't make you feel like you've already read this a thousand times before.

The story's premise is fairly simple. Haruna is a tomboyish girl who spent most of her junior high school involved in sports, and now that she's in high school, she wants to get a boyfriend and learn how to act and dress like a girl. The problem is, she has no idea read more

The premise is simple, yet refreshing - Haruna, whom devoted all her time to softball in middle-school, wishes to get a boyfriend in high-school and lead a "normal" teenage girl's life. She bumps into Yoh, resident aloof hottie and teenage heartthrob, and gets him to be her "coach", but with the condition that she mustn't fall in love with him!

The heroines of these manga want to get a boyfriend, but that's not so easy for them. Risa is a bit too tall while Haruna has a bad fashion sense and a masuline build due to playing baseball in middle school. Along the way they end up going out with the guy who supported them and helped them from the beginning.
