Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him—with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?

Honey, or Honey So Sweet as titled by Viz, is about a relationship that blossoms between two high school students: a boy everybody notices because they're afraid of him (Taiga) and a girl nobody notices because she's timid (Nao). The plot is as generic as it sounds. There are plot points that make themselves really obvious and the same type of characters you'd find in any other generic high school romance series, from serious characters to characters who scream a lot.

The series had a really rocky start and gets weird at times because it starts off with Nao having a crush on her uncle. The read more

Love isn't always sunshine and rainbows, but during a relationship's best moments, the couple would be so cute and sweet that just looking at them would give you diabetes. A lot of these moments happen when the relationship is as healthy as one can be, but not all of the healthiest relationships start out so well as it eventually becomes. Sometimes, it's just a matter of whether or not you're willing to look past first impressions and see a potential partner for who they are inside. For example, someone who might look scary and cold-hearted may actually have the warmest heart and most gentle personality. read more

under the table girl slowly starts falling in love with a delinquent she had been kind to years earlier. We have seen it so many times it is impossible to remember a chunk of the manga/anime that featured that theme. Honey takes that and does nothing to make it better, it just embraces that sweet syroupy shoujo story and does nothing else.

Story is a 6. Romance? Basically him being helped by her a few years ago then they meet again at high school and he is trying to speedrun marriage. All the romance there is, is basically just being embarrassed around each other and stuff read more

This was an ok romance. There is nothing inappropriate about this story at all; this is literally the epitome of fluff.
There's the obvious and generic love triangles; so one for each. In my opinion the second love triangle was more unbearable than the first one mostly because the side girl just did not understand the fact that Onise and and Nao are in a relationship, literally no matter how much someone explains it she just refused to get it. But unlike other romance mangas, Onise and Nao never disregarded each others' feelings. For example *SORT OF SPOILER*
when Onise started calling the side girl by read more
