Synopsis

For his twentieth birthday, Shizuka chooses to go to a hot springs alone. To his surprise, he also ends up seeing his first naked woman... a passed out drunk girl. Soon afterward he enters college, and his friend from high school convinces him to join the female dominated travel and hot springs club. Amazingly, the girl he saw naked, Ruka, is also a member of the club! Now he must interact with his club more or less normally, and pretend he doesn't imagine Ruka naked every time he sees her. He is determined that his embarrassing secret never be made public!

This story got the best confession line ever in manga.

I must admit, the author got really good job putting everything to work out in this Hetakoi. I easily enjoy every page, and every second of this. It's easy for me to get the feel of falling in love, jealousy, excitement, happiness, and anxiety, or even anger while reading this. And after all that roller coaster of emotion, we got one heck of a confession line. I love it.

That in itself is good enough to make a good manga, but this manga is not limited to just that.
The characters are really well done. they got drawn read more

I was a little skeptical on reading this manga because some of the genres it was in but after finishing the first vol. I was completely drawn into the story that I finished this in two days.

The story was really good in my opinion it started off a little predictable because of the synopsis, and I thought hmm this seems like it will be another cliche story but boy was I wrong, the relationship with the main characters progressed realistically and I was enjoying every second of it. Although it did end abruptly but not like other stuff I've seen(Everything important that you would want read more

So Hetakoi is pretty much a shoujo manga, let's make that clear. It is a shoujo manga, but the thing is, I normally don't read nor love shoujo mangas as much as I did this one. It starts out very funny with an unfortunate event between the main character (Komai/"grandpa") and the potential love interest...Most likely the most awkward first meeting between 2 characters i've seen in quite some time(trying not to spoil it). But that's just the first scene...and it gets oh so much better. I understand that it is a little cliched with all the romance and all that, but it certainly pushed read more

It was better than what I thought it is. I really enjoyed the story… overall 8

Komai(the hero of this manga) nickname is grandpa because he thinks and acts like an old man and he never had a girlfriend in his whole life. He has a nice character nice and caring..

Hetakoi begins when Komai see a whole naked drunk women in a hot spring in his birthday. It was his first time seeing a naked women. After that he joined the hot spring club in his college and fell in love with a girl that he soon found out the she is the same as the read more
