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.

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

Preliminary (25/71 eps)
I knew from reviews that the romance was going to be lacking, and the main focus would be friendship. However, I felt that the friendship was even done poorly.

The one guy is in love with this girl and they're portrayed as being practically besties, but this one scene were the guy is confiding in her about his feelings and she just kinda... ignores him and changes ...
