Responsible class president Nanase Sakashita couldn't be more different than the class-cutting loner, Hana-kun. But when he saves her from a pushy classmate, the two strike up an unlikely friendship.

Will the two be able to overcome their differences?

Preliminary (30/45 eps)
Just finished the latest chapter (as of now) and thought of making a review. I tried my best to not show spoilers so most of it are opinions and not exactly facts. Here it goes:

At first, the story seems like just an ordinary one- about two students who barely know each other but starts to get to know one another after an incident. But in this manga, it's time to unfold the untold story of a class rep. The one who's always a side character and has an unrequited love. I find the development of the story interesting and it's not exaggerated like other ...
