What happens when an all-girls' high school reigning tomboy finds out her school is about to be filled with boys!?

Hanabi Oozora is a rambunctious 16-year-old tomboy who comes to the rescue of her less assertive friends—sometimes in exchange for food. So what does she do when, all of a sudden, her all-girls' school is about to be integrated with an all-boys' school?!

She meets and falls in love—naturally—with one of the three most popular and handsome boys in the Student Council, Yasuaki Garaku! Unfortunately, Yasuaki doesn't care for girls...and when the girls' Student Council clashes head-on with the boys' Student Council, Hanabi steps in to become a member—hoping she'll change Yasuaki's mind!

There are manga that leave behind strong or deep impressions, often those that would be called a masterpiece. H3 School isn't one of those, but oddly enough, I find that aspect to be one of this manga's redeeming points. At its heart, H3 is best described as a fun read... and well, sometimes that's exactly all you may want or need.

The premise of the story is interesting enough, as it starts with an all-girl school and the announcement that it will soon be merged with an all-boy school (and of course the problems and benefits that will come attached to that change). In that read more

Meh .... it was all right. It has a very very basic and standard storyline when it comes to shoujou. I mean some of the stand alone chapters are pretty freakin' hysterical and the expressions and artwork is actually staggering at many points. But characters have ... just mediocre character build up. You don't know why one character falls in love with another except because they're supposed to. You get the standard love triangle stories now n then which is allright, but nothing that makes your heart go doki doki. Characters remain true to their personalities throughout though, which is an added plus.

“Lots of great stuff is out there, if you just find the guts to try.”

This is one of those manga, you’re not sure if to start so you cautiously read the first chapter. Then before you know it you fins the charcaters funny, bold and completely bizarre that you can’t help but keep reading just to see what happens next.

That’s how I met Hanabi Ozora she goes to an all girls private school and is known for being a psycho when it comes to the whole justice prevails thing.
Don’t worry she doesn’t go around killing people for vengeance. She only hurts them, read more

When I first saw this manga, I knew I had to read it. What's not to love about an awkward tomboy? The fact is, though, that Hanabi is actually a believable tomboy; a girl who likes to beat up boys, sweats, and isn't stuck on herself. But all that changes when she crosses paths with the oh-so-dreaming Yasuaki. His character, however, is a little less believeable. I mean, what teenager boy is "allergic" to girls??? Both characters are fairly well developed through flashbacks and everyday occurances that make the manga seem very realistic. The situations are things that read more
