Despite what the meaning of her name would suggest, Hana Tabata bears no resemblance to a flower. Her eyes are too small and her limbs are far from slender. She is, in fact, "ugly," and as such, knows that cute things and a fairy-tale romance are out of her reach. Yet this does not stop her from daydreaming every morning as she tends to the school's beautiful flower beds that contrast her appearance.

One day, a casual encounter puts Tabata in contact with her classmate, Yousuke Ueno, who is well known for being both handsome and extremely kind. Why would such a popular student associate with a background character like her? To Tabata, it is an unfathomable situation, but can Ueno show her that looks aren't everything?

I am actually really impressed with this manga. It more-or-less is a pretty generic love story between an ugly girl and a Riajuu. More than likely you've seen it before in dozens of hundreds of other similar Shoujo-type love stories. However, Busu ni Hanataba wo does it with enough of a strong pace and enjoyable atmosphere that it gets away with being a little bit generic.

The part that probably works best is the main girl Tabata. So many of these types of manga have the girl be at least somewhat conventionally attractive. When they aren't, that typically only applies in universe. In reality the ...

Bouquet for an ugly girl, or Busu ni Hanataba wo, is such an approachable and wholesome story that makes you want to constantly click the “next chapter” button to see what is going to happen.
The plot revolves around Tabata Hana, a girl who is not your typical beauty and has low self-esteem, which makes her constantly think that she is being a burden for everyone surrounding her. For our heroine, being seen changing the flowers from the classroom vase is enough to trigger intrusive thoughts of being a waste of space.

The story can easily fall into the cliché of the ugly girl falling in love ...

I'd hate to say this, but as a huge fan of Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You), Busu ni Hanataba Wo suffered for being a "copycat."

I have read up to volume 6 and the resemblance of Busu ni Hanataba Wo to Kimi no Todoke is so distracting. A lot of events and situations are very reminiscing of Kimi ni Todoke, which is very hard to overlook. I wanted to like the series I really do, but it's Kimi ni Todoke all over again with just different character designs. I would understand if the plot is the only thing that is the same, but it's ...
