Waiting for Spring
Volume 1


Mizuki is a shy girl who's about to enter high school, and vows to open herself up to new friendships. Of course, the four stars of the boys' basketball team weren't exactly the friends she had in mind! Yet, when they drop by the café where she works, the five quickly hit it off. Soon she's been accidentally thrust into the spotlight, targeted by jealous girls. And will she expand her mission to include... love?

I thought the character development was decent because there's obvious change and the author incorporated scenarios that would highlight that development which was nice. Overall, it was a good manga to read if you're looking for something easy and light that packs cute scenes, emotions, and good ol' camaraderie/rivalries.

One thing I thought this manga did a good job at was actually showing what the leads liked about one another; it was clear and it seemed more thought-out than other mangas I've seen. But I had pretty serious second-lead syndrome with this one as well...

I hope you enjoy reading this if you choose to read more

As soon as I noticed there wasn't really a proper review of this manga yet, I decided to grab my keyboard and tell you a bit about this interesting story - without spoiling the main plot.

So the story evolves around a girl named Haruno, Mitsuki. She has always been a bit of a loner, because she tended to concentrate on studying a lot and just didn't quite fit in. It was her childhood friend Aya-chan, whom supported her in finding a reason to keep going. And so Mitsuki enters her high school, determined to make friends. It's hard to make friends, because nearly read more

I really like it! The artwork is amazing and it fits my style hehe..
The story is great as well! What I like the most is the characters! Haruno Mitsuki the most is who I relate to! She doesn't seem to be the type of girl that would blush so easily like getting grabbed by the arm from anyone ( I hate things like that) She's a normal girl :)

The boys....oh my lord. Praise Anashin-senpai! (Author) The boys are hot asf and their really nice :)

If you want to read a manga that feels connection with the characters than this is DEFS the right manga read more

This manga was a pleasant surprise for me. When I first saw the cover, I almost groaned as I thought it might be a harem between the main girl and the four boys but I was wrong - though spoiler alert, there is a love triangle mixed in because it's not a shoujo manga without a love triangle, right?

The manga follows Haruno Mitsuki, a loner girl who struggles to make friends. She finds solace in her work, which is across from a basketball court with she holds precious to her as that was where she met her childhood friend, Aya. The cafe where read more
