Whenever Suiren Shibazeki walks by, heads turn due to her captivatingly cute looks. In elementary school, boys would pay too much attention to her, to the point where she avoided them altogether. In middle school, she attended an all-girls school in the hopes of escaping all the unwanted attention, but she was still smothered by her classmates' coddling. As a result, Suiren now rarely speaks and maintains an expressionless face.

Advancing to high school, Suiren returns to a co-ed school and is once again the center of attention. The boys refer to her as "Takane no Hana," flower on a high peak, unreachable and idolized from afar. However, one boy outside her sea of admirers catches her eye—Kouha Kawasumi, a talented karate student who is just as quiet as her. While he may not return her immediate affection, Kouha saves her from a group of boys, jump-starting the heartwarming romance that blossoms between the two soft-spoken youths.

If you are a quiet person who has a hard time talking to people (especially to someone you admire) but enjoys cute little moments with your crush, this manga is for you. For US. This manga was very enjoyable from beginning to end. The art, the transitioning from one event to another was perfection!

This manga is my all time; overall favorite! It has many cute moments,funny and a few heartbreaking moments but very worth reading. I 10/10 would highly recommend to anyone who loves a cutesy feel good high school love story with relationships (romantic and friendship wise) that beautifully develops! (////v ///)

Remember reading books and watching television shows (anime and manga included) and you find yourself saying 'C'mon, do something!' because the story moves at such an excruciatingly slow pace?

That is Hibi Chou Chou for you in a nutshell.


Upon entering high school, the very quiet but extremely cute Suiren becomes the immediate center of attention among the boys, nicknamed the'Takane no Hana' ... but one particular boy does not look her way. The story of a quiet girl and a quiet boy.

Story: 5/10

The story is average. Even below average I could say. I started reading it because it is a 'slow build' but it is so slow that barely any progress is made. You will read 75 chapters where absolutely nothing happens. There are even some of them you could skip and you still wouldn't be missing anything.

Art: 8/10

If there is something good about this manga is the art.

Character: 3/10

If the story is bad the characters are even worse. I'm only gonna talk about the main character because I don't want this to be extremely long. The two main characteristics of the protagonist are that she ...
