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.

Originally was going to give this a 7

I actually enjoyed most of the series. It was fun. But the ending.... was dogshit.

its sad the author pulls the open ending garbage like there actually good author's making good decisions but sadly that is not the case.

Many of characters barely grow in this time span as well as the fact that the romance is kept open ended while keeping the pacing a snail.

Overall it could've been good fun show. But the ending ruined it. the journey saves it from going into the negative but the ending ruins any chance for it being actually worth watching

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)
there's this part where one of the main characters builds a tower thing for his grad project, and the teachers stand there and are like "it's good but.." so the guys friend takes a piece of wood and makes up a read more

I love this manga. safe to say that i really enjoyed this read.

its a story about people and how they struggle with love, passion, careers and relationships in a way that is realistic and relatable. every character in this series has depth and story that keeps you emotionally driven while reading it.

it talks about how people deal with unrequited love. how they manage it, how they choose to hold on and to let go. not only love for a person, but love in work and hobbies such as art. with that, they talk about how people's struggles with balancing love and passion especially read more
