Moe is a gorgeous high school student whom others find difficult to get along with, as her blunt honesty often comes off as insensitive. However, after meeting Eiko Sakamoto, a plain but exceedingly gracious girl, Moe feels she has finally found someone who truly understands her. Ever since then, the two have been inseparable best friends.

Because Eiko has an exceptionally kind heart, Moe takes it upon herself to protect her because of how much she cherishes their friendship. With guys often asking her out, she immediately lays down a single rule: dating her means they must also spend quality time with Eiko. Though the affections of others may push them apart, the two girls refuse to falter and show just how deep their bond truly is.

[Warning] This is more of a word vomit than an actual review. I apologize.

Friendships in mainstream shonen anime usually mean having two bros punching and kicking, shedding sweat and blood to prove their bravery, perseverance, strength and physical sacrifice. I came across this manga out of sheer coincidence. In fact, I rarely read any shojo, but I'm glad that I read this one.

The "Secret of Friendship" between Eiko and Moe is nothing less compelling - just perhaps, a hell lot less painful in comparison. It's rare to find a story that centers around a friendship between two young girls, who are so utterly devoted to read more

“The secret of friendship” is a shoujo romance manga with a school life setting, but that’s only what the genres tell you. The art and plot execution is far more josei than shoujo, and friendship easily trumps romance as the central theme of the story. But these dichotomies make this title all the more engaging and memorable, one you’d like to revisit every time your friend cancels on your dinner plans to hang out with their significant other instead!

We have our two leading ladies, Eiko and Moe who meet in those initial turbulent days of high school when classmates are forming cliques, forging friendships and read more

Story: 9

The story is simple, thus making it easy to take in. There wasn't much of a big drama or cliche drama. I also love the relationship between Eiko and Moe and how it developed. The pacing is also good, though it was kind of fast in the end. The romance part at the end was also nice and sweet.

Art: 9

The art's also great. I wasn't accustomed to it much at first because it's different from other shoujo mangas, but it's really nice and cute and really makes reading it much fun.

I hated the guy at first, but I love his wittiness or read more
