Simple, humuorous & sugary sweet!! I was hooked after watching the 1st few eps.

Preliminary (19/61 eps)
I discovered this 25 years after it was broadcasted, but before watching it I read the manga (40 chapters in 10 volumes): imho the manga is a very nice shojo, one of the best imho of the old ones, while the anime is average in comparison (that's why my rates).

I like of HCNR how the novel is in between the Majokko of e.g. Creamy Mami and the more mature romantic shojos: the main character indeed is not a 10yo kid but a Junior High student and the plot has a very strong focus on the sentimental life of her as well as her growing from ...
