In a rainy spring day, first year high schooler Midori Saezima saw a tall, handsome fellow student took care of a stray kitten. Without knowing the boy's name, she fell in love with him at the first sight. Due to sickness, Midori returned to school three days after summer vacation -- only to find out that she was "volunteered" as a candidate for student council. After a series of embarrassing accidents, both she and the mysterious boy she had a crush on, Akira Sudo, were elected as members of the student council.

Yet another masterpiece by Yazawa Ai! Even though it's one of her older works, it's still absolutely great. The art seemed to me a bit off at first, but once you get used to it, it doesn't bother you anymore. It's such a sweet and real story. Some people criticized the main character for "crying too much". I didn't mind that, personally, I guess it's a thing of personal taste. If you are a fellow artist, you will enjoy this story even more so. I could relate to it on such a level it was like reading about myself and my best friends. It's ...

It's cute and fun. I love his hair. (Youll know who i'm talking about when you read it)

Our female lead cries at everything, but its okay that's just her personality. It doesn't get annoying like other mangas. Our male lead has an invisible wall in his heart. These go through romance rollercoasters like normal high school students do. Themes such as "You don't know what you had ...

All the characters make you fall in love with them and their act!

Story: 8/10
It is nothing new as a plot but the execution is very entertaining. Our heroin is a social butterfly, while our hero has a regent hairstyle but doesn't act as a delinquent, he is very mature(They kinda resemble my favorite duo in 'Dame na'). The story has some interesting twists that works out without stressing you along the read.

Art: 10/10
Yazawa's style is unique and the characters are always dressed elegantly, she changes their hairstyles and looks often! It's very enjoyable with Midori and Mamirin, especially because it's very 90s here.

Enjoyment: 9/10
