Playboy Kai definitely knows his way around girls' hearts, but when he has a run-in with tomboy Riko, he may be in for more than he bargained for! Riko definitely doesn't fit Kai's usual type of girl: she's short-tempered, scary, and can (has) easily beat him up. There's no way a rough and tumble girl like Riko is capable of a delicate feeling like love! So imagine his surprise when he finds out about her secret, one-sided crush... But it's none of his concern, right?

Story: [8/10]
The story revolves around our male main lead, Ichinose Kai, as he maneuvers his way into wooing our female main lead, Takanashi Riko. The story is in the perspective of Kai, the school's resident player! Incidentally, this "womanizer" falls for Riko who happens to be our unpopular tomboy. While the story maintains a fresh take on the popular guy-tomboy girl cliche: the drama, the misunderstandings or side plots can be a bit mundane and draggy at times. Kai and Riko definitely score points on the level of cuteness they exude from each other though!

Hatsu Haru is a shining jewel in the treasure chest of shoujo romances in a school setting. Though I’m possibly getting a bit ahead of myself given its newness (the first chapter released nary 10 days ago) I cannot help but be drawn to its novelty, its gaiety and its overall awesome-sauce-ness!

The plot starts off with our *gasp* male lead and protagonist Kai Ichinose enjoying a blissfully blessed high school life, filled with girls throwing themselves at him given his natural charm and good looks. He knows he’s got it, he wants to flaunt it, and no amount of scolding from his well meaning classmate read more

This is a shoujo manga that has a male lead as the protagonist, told from his point of view it deviates from the standard shoujo genre.

The story is not that unique though, a handsome misunderstood playboy boy falls in love with a not-so poor but feisty girl who tries to win her heart. But I am enjoying reading this, for me I think the best thing about this manga are the characters. They are all likable and the female lead though feisty is not overbearing nor annoying, her longtime one-sided crush is quite painful to see but she holds herself strong and is quite read more
