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.
this is the first time i reviewing something solely because i want it, well i just finished it and the way to describe the story was.... so sweeet, diabetes symptom alert.
the story is about a girl who fear to all male because she always think that boys/male are frightening creature that always eat from rice cooker, crush her hand if they hold it and other many bad image about boys that she has. then her friend tell her to try overcome her phobia simply by just confessing to strange boy out there. so she remember a guy who she always pass by in her way
to school who once pick her key chain by chance. she mustered the courage and confessed to him but surprisingly she got accepted by the boy. so it's begin their first, cute, sweet, awkward love story... the story was focus mainly on how the two of them act to each other and get the advice from their friends... since it's their first experience going out with someone. no love triangle, no bullshit drama, no intervention, no depressing situation, only the pure first love story from two highschooler
it's not only from girl perspective, it also from the guy perspective which is very much similar with the girl perspective(about the shyness and how to act as a couple).
i could say its seinen with much shoujo feeling yet still have shounen type romance feeling too.
the feeling really similar when i watch ore monogatari and working. really recommend for sweet romance lover
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.
At 28, I rarely eat sweets things. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because This manga gave me Diabetes anyway.
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
draw in that style, or draw at all haha).
The characters here are pretty well developed, though rather slowly. It's fun to see the main girl throughout the story as she runs into cute little problems and makes you want to say "aww." The main boy starts to be shown a little later than the girl, his thought process and such, but he is an enjoyable character who compliments the girl well.
And as to personal enjoyment...well I did give this a 10 overall due to my personal enjoyment, so yeah it was pretty good.
Currently, the manga is complete but is only translated up to chapter 22 (at the time of this review), I don't know if I'll be able to survive the wait.
