Volume 1


Lacking in self-esteem and suffering from social anxiety, eighth-grader Hikage Sumino has remained unnoticed throughout her life. Upon entering middle school, she made a personal resolution to make some friends, but even at the end of her first year, she remains fruitless. Her only comforts are a lonely flower she found and regularly cares for, and "1 Centimeter of Happiness," her sunflower-themed internet blog where she regularly posts her thoughts and experiences. Though she usually gets only two visitors on her blog, Hikage finds satisfaction in their comments and appreciates their support.

One day, she is surprised to find out that two of the most popular boys of her school, Hinata Mutou and Teru Mikami, are aware of her presence and remember her name. Dazed by this sudden revelation, she posts about this encounter on her blog and gets an inspiring comment from one of her regular visitors. Taking her internet friend's advice, she gains some confidence and aspires to change her world for the better.

This is at lest an easy 8/10. The art is nice. The story is well written and relatable enough to plenty of people even if you do have some friends. It is a series but I recommend to take your time with this one. I can see this becoming an ...

Mixed Feelings
There's something to be said about school dramas. In my opinion, a school drama must be connected to the real for the most part-- anything that is supposed to be imitating, and not mocking, reality should be connected to the real. Reality, where things are not black and white, requires that an author look at their characters and make judgments based on the characters they meet on a day to day basis.

That's why I can't give this a good review. I just can't.

Story: 2/10
I give this a 2 because this type of story is dry and uninteresting. A shy girl needs to pick between two ...

I will get straight to the point - this manga really insults the readers' intelligence.

First of all, the plot is very predictable. You can figure it out by just reading the first chapter. There are several "plot twists",
however none of them really will surprise you.
The story is filled with painfully obvious clichés and there are no small twists that would make it seem even slightly original.
But those weren't the main problems for me since there are a lot of great mangas who have done similar things -
what made me lose all my remaining faith were the shallow characters and the pretentious narrative.
The Best part ...
