Fumi and Akira were best friends when they were little, with Akira always looking after the crybaby Fumi, but that all ended when Fumi's family moved away. Several years later, Fumi's family returned, and she and Akira happened to bump into each other on their way to school. They became friends again, quickly slipping back into old patterns. Shortly after, Fumi began dating a cool, attractive upperclassman who, coincidentally enough, had ties to Akira's current school, the prestigious Fujigaya Girls' Academy.

Aoi Hana deserves to be in the conversation whenever the great romance and yuri manga are discussed. The art is a joy.

I would only recommend reading Aoi Hana if you were really desperately starved for some yuri in your life. As I know good yuri works are pretty hard to come by and if you are after some school-girl angsting yuri crush story, then yes. Give Aoi Hana a go. (Though I think Sasameki Koto is a lot better.)

Though Aoi Hana is looooooong. Long in the way that it drifts over to the side characters pretty much constantly and if you don't remember names well then it can be pretty confusing. A few times I was reading thinking 'wait who's this?' 'what's the deal with ...

The pacing was all over the place. Like, there were lots of moments where things were going by really quickly and it left me really confused. But there were also parts where the story was going way too slow, and it left me feeling bored and uninterested. I really wanted to like this manga because I had heard so many good things about it, but like this manga was really painful to read for me. I think part of that issue either comes back to the translators or the mangaka herself. Plus I was really put off by the fact that a lot of the ...
