SynopsisThe main character, Ayase Yuuto is your average boy without any special traits. He attends a private high school where he is one of the many and doesn't stand out, until, one day, he happens to discover the secret of the school princess Nogizaka Haruka, and his life changes drastically from there on.
Haruka, the school's most unattainable girl, is so idolized in the school for both, her looks and intelligence, that her classmates nickname her Nuit Étoile (The Silver Star of the Night) and Lumière du Clavier (The Shining Princess on the Piano). However, nobody knows that it is only a fake role she assumes to hide her true nature. In reality she is a die-hard fan of anime, manga, and otaku culture.

Everyone does mistakes in grammar or spelling , but i'm trying my best for you guys, k :3?
First of all,i love romances. Especially those in combination with the shoujo-genre. And of course , i did watch the anime and i really enjoyed it.
That's why i will give a objective review and analysis, but also my personal opinion about the manga. Of course, i will try to keep it short like i always do.
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is your typical school-life-romance with your rich, popular girl and the kind, normal boy. The idea, what differs it form other shoujo-romances with this cast as the main couple, is quite interresting at first, but falls of very quickly. It seems like the author uses this as an excuse to create different situations which often appear in other shoujos.Basically, some moments may be new, but the concept is still the same - The hero safes the heroine with his kindness - .
Of course, there're "villains" who are against the main couple and people who support them.
But that concept, that idea is just perfect, at least for me. I didn't choose Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu because it has an interresting plot or new "features" that other romances don't have. I choosed it because it is a pure, heart warming story. The girl ist just too clumsy and innocent.This makes her so moe and adorable.The guy is really kind,gentle and nice which makes both of them a perfect couple. Of course , there are problems and drama events which will stronger their relationship in the end.
The echii element may be unnecessary, but i can't complain about it either.
Compared to the anime,it's way shorter but it still has the main events and gives out the same warm and happy feeling.
I would recommend it to all my pure - shoujo and romance fans and lovers out there. If you don't like pure - romances or the anime, keep your fingers away from it. For those who don't know, pure means "no
excessive drama with death or love rivals,no madness and tragedy and no sex"
Well, that's my opinion.Nobody has to agree with me and i can't guarantee that you will get the same feeling as i got.Just read it and make yourself your own opinion
A boy discovers that the idol of the school is a secret otaku. He befriends her and helps her become more accepting of her otaku ways. The difference is the male MC in "Tonari" is more of an otaku, while the male in "Nogizaka" (so far) is limited to casual manga reading. Also, the female lead in "Nogizaka" is wealthy (complete with maids), while the female lead in "Tonari" seems to be of average income.
Both romantic comedy series involves an ordinary boy discovering a secret involving a girl who is considered a school idol. From there, they begin to bond and eventually forms a special relationship.
Throughout the series, there is a sense of connection between the two that started out as friends but later turns into something more.
There's also other characters present in both series that interacts with the duo presented in both dramatic and comedic ways.
Both series have a slice of life feeling involving both characters' development with others as well as their own relationship in a school life setting.
