Hana Suzuki loves only two things in life: eating and sleeping. So when handsome classmate Izumi Oda asks Hana–his major crush–to join the school hockey club, persuading her proves to be a difficult task. True, the Grand Hockey Club is full of boys–and all the boys are super-cute–but given a choice, Hana prefers a sizzling steak to a hot date. Then Izumi mentions the field trips to fancy resorts. Now Hana can’t wait for the first away game, with its promise of delicious food and luxurious linens. Of course there’s also the getting up early, working hard, and playing well with others. How will Hana survive? (Source: Del Rey)
When I first picked up this book I was thinking about what it might be about. After reading the summary, I thought it would just be some ridiculous romance/sport kind of story but decided to give it a go.
Upon reading the first volume, I was hooked as the personalities were so easy to relate to and the main character, Hana Suzuki, appealed to me as a funny character because of her approach to things. The unique storyline made me think for a while, as if you looked at it from different angles, it wouldn't look all that interesting. But looking upon this series, you'll find it is quite enjoyable and humorous. Well, it also obviously depends on your preferences.
Hana's lovely (lol) expressions, the first game, the quirky members of the Hockey Club, these are what make this story flow well. I haven't seen many people writing/drawing about a character like Hana. Makes me want to hug her! Hahaha.read more
Well this is my first Review so don't be too hard on me ahhaha, my english isn't really good but I hope that all of you can understand what i'm saying.
I don't know anymore where I found this manga, It was on my list and because I really need an manga that moment I randomly pick one from my list, it was naturally Gokuraku Seishun Hockey Club.
So when I was reading it I thought it will be something full of expected things but it really turned out different than I thought. The more I read the more I was laughing, I really like the humor in this manga hahaha. I didn't expect that the characters would be so laughable. The art was really really nice, I have seen better ones but I found this beautiful too. In the story was a little romance -in my opinion- but I think that's really suitable in this manga, if it was too sweet it will be like any other manga were she will gets lovey dovey and than all that shit but in this manga she was dense all the time so I really like that too.
I think that if you search a manga were you can laugh with what romance that this manga is suitable for you ^^read more
First in the manga rental randomly i picked mangas, when i was very bored to found manga in there. Then when i picked this title, first impression was "huh? i don't like the art working of this manga (alas i judged book by its cover T__T)", but when i saw volume 2 (there's izumi-senpai and hana) i thought "WOW !! HANDSOME GUY!" so it has had picked out. Day by day the art is better in my sight, so i was so addected to this manga.
And after i read this, overall, this manga is so good make me laugh all the time, and the characters here are remind me to Ouran High School Host Club, coz there's 1 girl around the boys, actually rich and cool guys ! Don't overlook this manga, kay! I'm sure you all will laugh all the time same as i did coz of its fresh comedy romance genre. ^^read more
