Sixteen-year-old Hana Nonomura is forced to be the substitute for her older sister Yukari at a miai: a meeting between two people considering an arranged marriage. Hana's prospective suitor turns out to be the handsome heir of the wealthy Takaba company, Takane Saibara, who is 10 years her senior. He promptly shows disdain toward Hana and, in response, she tells him that she is equally unimpressed by his status and personality.

Hana believes that her actions at the meeting should have put an end to the discussions about marriage with Takane. To her surprise, not only does the man want to proceed with negotiations but he also starts to show interest in her! This is just the beginning of a special relationship between two polar opposites!

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Takane to Hana was published in English as Takane & Hana by VIZ Media under the Shojo Beat imprint from February 6, 2018 to December 7, 2021.

This series is downright hilarious and definitely not cliche. The main female lead is a professional roaster, and the main male lead is just so nosy and his facial expressions are hilarious! I found myself cracking up every single page. It also breaks the cliche shoujo image of a "couple" and gives a little bit more real perspective to how couples truly act. The storyline is great and the age gap can be odd, but you get used to it and actually find yourself rooting for the main female lead. I'll give it a 10, to show how serious I recommend you read this.

In all honesty, I did not expect Takane to Hana to be this good. I expected it to be a pretty decent shoujo among the rest but I was very wrong.

From the synopsis, it is understood that Hana went to her older sister's Miai/omiai with Takane (wedding arrangement) in place of her older sister. Everyone is in the arrangement meeting is unaware that Hana is the wrong person for this arrangement.

The story is unique, to say the least. Before reading I assumed that Hana would just be a typical shojo MC where she fawns over the guy and its cliche but that couldn't be farther read more

This manga was fun with really cool retorts and many different facial expressions of Takane and Hana. It was just until the first half of the manga.

After that it felt like the story is being dragged with pointless twists. There’s nothing called ‘seriousness’ in this story which is fine. But there are some times where I expected something that’s not funny and the characters take some moments seriously.

It’s a gag manga but does not exactly look like one. Hana’s character was the best in the beginning and now it’s the most annoying character. Especially with the pointless plot. Takane’s character has been so read more

This manga took me by surprise. I was expecting a typical shoujo romance manga but instead was pleasantly surprised by the plot, art style and COMEDY. Believe me, this manga will not disappoint in the comedy department, you will find yourself cracking up at various parts.

From the beginning it had a funny set up. A 16 yo high school girl fills in for her older sister in meeting a 26 year old for a "MIAI" which is like two people meeting up for a possible marriage match. From the beginning the two main characters have an interesting meeting and from that very first incident up read more
