I directly love these cover.. Very cute art and their synopsis interested me..
I didn't regret bought it^^

First, this story kinda strange to me. it mean, why Niina still remember her past? How to explain this while she too young for know everything that no longer excist... but, I decided to ignore it & just focus for story....

Honeslty I cried, this comics hurting me with their characters, so warmly, I can felt too.. I was sad and seriously cry when I started read Vol.2 .... not just me, but my friends who borrow this Niina actually cried too.. haha

From the beginning, she meets the old boyfriend from her past life, so that's the running plot in the start. I thought that the whole manga would be about Niina as an eleven-year-old girl, but there is a time skip right after chapter one, which was surprising but well done. It made the story much more enjoyable. After reading the first chapter I think many people would drop the manga, thinking it to be about a silly little girl pining over an older man, but it really does get better. I liked her as an older girl in high school.

I found Niina to be a read more

At first I was reluctant to read this manga because of the whole "past life" aspect. However, this manga is extremely beautiful and definitely worth your time. Unlike most shoujo manga, it is not 100% cliche (for example falling onto one another) and the romance is sweet, slow, and subtle. The characters also do not fit into the regular shoujo manga mold. For example, the mc realizes her immaturity and reflects on it. The male character is very smart and understanding too, and lets the mc find her own path in life. The other characters are also well developed. The "past life" part is actually read more

I originally decided to read to read this manga due to the art. But as I continued, I realized there was much more to this manga. It doesn’t have nearly as much attention as it should. I became to love the characters and this is definitely one of my favourite manga.

I actually started reading this manga before I saw the synopsis. It gave me a great surprise. Hajimari no Niina has a unique plot and heartwarming story. It brought to tears and even when I think of it now, I feel a hole in my heart. It is definitely not your typical shoujo manga and read more
