Sakuya Shiina lives with Kanade, her male cousin and foster parent. In times of pain and sadness, she's always taken comfort in looking up at the stars. One day, a mysterious boy suddenly shows up at Sakuya's house for her birthday. He leaves her with kind words, but she has no idea who he is!

All she has to go on is his name--Chihiro! Not one to let that deter her, she sets out in search of him with the reluctant help of her two best friends, Yuuri and Sei. Everyone says that Sakuya should just forget him, but she's oddly drawn to the curious boy. Then, a twist of fate allows them to meet once more! Will this meeting bring them closer together... or will the feelings between these lone stars remain forever in the dark?

Looking at what other reviewers had to say about this manga, I went in not expecting much more than a good story with a decent ending. Wow was I undersold on this one. Twinkle Stars is genuinely on par with Fruits Basket when it comes to Natsuki Takaya's other works and I'm honestly surprised I never hear people talk about it.

Twinkle Stars Review. From the Author of Fruits Basket.

If Fruits basket is half as good as this, I'll probably hate it cuz this manga isn't that great either.

Twinkle stars revolves around the theme of stars. If the title wasn't obvious enough. Our FMC is currently living with a family friend because her parents hate her because this is a manga and loving parents is an alien concept to the Japanese. She meets the male lead whom she immediately falls in love with the male lead because he's the male lead and he said the one thing no one has ever said to her ever in ...

It started off really well in the first two volumes, the first omnibus. There was mystery and Chihiro was actually two sided. Chihiro meets Kanade on Saku's birthday. He's holding a present, and when he meets Kanade, he tells him he's her boyfriend. Saku comes home and meets Chihiro for the first time.

She finds out later that that's not the case. He's neither her boyfriend nor a close friend of Kanade. He's unwilling to be who he really is. He tells her he can be anyone she wants to him be, other ...
