Kira-kun Today
Volume 1


For one short year, haplessly awkward, cockatiel-toting Nino has to keep watch over class joker and nextdoor neighbor, Kira-kun. Can Kira-kun—who harbors a terrible secret—find it in himself to open up and learn something new from Nino, or will she be consumed by his world? Two fates intertwine to become the "closest love to Heaven."

I found this manga by chance while scrolling through the "Romance" tag on a manga site.

I just spent the past 2 hours reading the entire series.

I have been in tears now for 20 minutes.

The story appears rather simple: boy meets girl, boy has a fatal illness and will die within a year. Despite the seemingly plain premise, what the story does so well, is making you fall in love with the characters.

While every character starts out plain or stereotypical, the depth of every one of them is simply so encapturing. Not only do they keep you turning the page, but they also read more

I honestly thought this manga would be your typical Shoujo manga (which I definitely do like) however this manga brought up so much more. The lead character is an introvert caused by a past trauma whose only friend is a bird. She befriends a boy in her class after finding out a very troubling secret about him. Under any other circumstances they would've probably never befriended each other.

The story is well-developed and the characters also develop throughout the story (especially the main character). What I also really love about this manga is that the author made the main male lead a crybaby. This is honestly read more

So I first found out about this series from instagram. From there, I read the summary of the story and it honestly captured my attention. Before this, most of the series I read are only the type that makes your heart go "kya kya" or "doki doki" but with the premise of this story, I was honestly in it for the tears. When I read the first chapter, I remembered how tears quickly ran down from my eyes, and just with that chapter alone, I was already prepared to be hurt from this melodrama series.

Well, I will say this, Kyou no Kira-kun is probably one read more

A Mixed Bag.

Kira-Kun today is the story about an incredibly shy girl who always has a parrot on her shoulder and about a Boy who gets everyone's attention. Both share a secret which in turn sort of connects them. The FMC's secret is that the Parrot can talk and is actually somewhat mature. Whilst the Boy will die in 1 year. So now you have 2 people who share a secret and in turn both people changing each other due to this connection.

Now the FMC is the classic 0 friends, no social skills type heroine. Totally never been done before. Now as you'd expect she read more
