Takemoto lives in a run down student apartment, where his greatest worry is when he'll next be able to afford to eat meat and whether he'll get to class on time. Although he's away from home and living on his own, Takemoto is far from finished growing up. Along with his crazy cast of friends, Morita, Mayama, Yamada, and Hagumi, Takemoto sets out to discover life and his true self.

If you’re reading these lines you’re wasting time you could have spent reading one of the best manga’s out there. But if you insist you can read my review first and then read Honey & Clover…

Honey & Clover popped up many times on my radar, but I never started it. I just thought it was another school Manga with a loli complex. Gosh was I wrong.

The story plays in an art university and being a student myself I could easily relate to the situation. If I had to cut it down, it’s really about a bunch of Students and their close surrounding. As boring as read more

This is an oddly enjoyable manga. It's very simple and basic, the drawings just plain, clean lines, But something addicts you to reading it. It's a fun manga, barely any deep feelings, But then, when there are, It's described so thoroughly and whole-heartedly it makes you cry. (unless it's something happy being described)it's hilarious too. I can't stop laughing when i read this.

SPOILER (Sort of)

one of my favorite manga and my biggest inspiration!

story - it's not just typical slice of life, every chapter left something for us to learn and the story is realistic, especially when you are uni or college students. also don't forget the comedic situations and the expression! this manga will make you laugh like crazy, and the next chapter you bawl like a baby.

art - at first it's a bit rough, but gets even better. I don't know how to say it but I can feel the warmth of the drawing and it looks so soft.

character - every characters feel so real and can relate read more

tl;dr on bottom

Honey and Clover is a manga that makes it really hard for me to pin down how I feel about it. It's a story packed full of love but no romance, is full of development yet things feel stagnant, and has characters that feel realistic but at the same time unbelievable.

The story follows primarily a group of 6 residents in a small house at an art school. The manga as a whole is then split up to follow each of the six characters as they learn to deal with their own personal struggles of love, talent and purpose. It's honestly a little read more
