Tsubasa to Hotaru follows 15-year-old Tsubasa Sonokawa, a young student—and renowned stalker? After one very romantic gesture by a popular upperclassman, she falls head over heels for who she believes to be her one true love. Unfortunately, love can be deceiving, as her feelings are soon proven to be one-sided; the upperclassman directly tells her that she’s annoying and that she needs to stop bothering him. How's that for some tough love?

Shortly after this horrific heartbreak, her good friend Yuri suffers from a sprained wrist, making it impossible for her to continue her position as the basketball team's manager. After some coaxing on Yuri's part, Tsubasa decides to take on the role in her place. This may be the perfect opportunity for Tsubasa to move on and forget about her unrequited love.

On Tsubasa’s first day as a manager, the team’s shooting guard Aki Hidaka saves her from being hit by a ball. Is this another fateful encounter? Or just a random, meaningless event? One thing is for certain: Tsubasa’s days will never be the same again.

I really loved this, and hoped for a serie. Although it's short, everything was done well ..like it was a prologue to a love story.
The plot is really cute, funny and refreshing and gives a nice feeling ..of ,somehow, innocent first love. I loved all the characters 'cause everyone had a different personality, but got along well. The art is one of those typical shojo and liked it. I think this is worth the watch, at least for those who don't mind watching something without a real end (that's for me ..i don't really think it should have ended like that, though) and a 14 ...

I Hope Anime It's made a series version
I Likes With Anime But I Love Only Can Enjoy a moment.

His story is quite interesting

Tsubasa Sonokawa is a sma girl who has a funny behavior
How unconsciously does this girl do what she does like a stalker against the person he likes.
And silly again the person who in love tsubasa this was not a person who should be liked by tsubasa (There are misconceptions), and people who should be liked by this tsubasa is aki (the reason .......)

I want to be complete
