Himari Ashihara has always attended all-girls schools. Because of this, she has virtually no experience with men and thus is unable to understand or deal with them at all. Her friends, Shuuko Tokiwa and Yae Kashino, decide the best way for her to overcome her problem is to confess to someone.

Gathering her courage, Himari asks Kai Satoru, a boy she crosses paths with while walking to school, out on a date by the river. To her shock, Kai accepts. Unsure and taken aback, Himari makes a deal with her friends: if he shows up at the riverbank, she will continue dating him—and if he is not there, she is allowed to apologize and say she has mistaken him for another person. Anxiously waiting at their meeting place, she is surprised when Kai makes an appearance, marking the beginning of Himari's first ever relationship.

One of the habits of my grandfather was that he liked to eat sweet foods. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately or eat in moderation.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of kidney failure. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Dont ever eating too many sugary foods. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. read more

Hajiotsu is that one manga that you will have trouble putting into words.
The romance is just too cute, like seriously. I grin in every chapter, and frankly, I creep myself out.

The story is something to notice, some may say that the premise isn't very original (it was for me) but the execution and to what I've read so far...SO GOOD!!! I can't help but fangirl over here (though I'm a boy). It keeps me involved even though a lot of the story is just one of those chapter by chapter events.

The art is very much to my liking, it's very cute (I wish I could read more
