Hina's new high school is strange to say the least. She moves back to her old home town only to find that the high school is run by two opposing factors, and students identify themselves based on the color of their school uniforms: Black for the followers of the loud, violent Nishizaki, and white for the followers of quiet, clean-freak Isshiki. And then there are the "grays," who wear street clothes. Hina finds herself stuck between the leaders of the two factions, and it seems to be turning violent.

As one might guess from the girly art and the Ribon publisher, the plot develops a romance element pretty early on in the series. There's a love triangle involved among two of the group leaders. Who will Hina choose?

This was absolutely delightful.

Story - girl comes to new school, where there are "teams". The whites and blacks, who appear to hate eachother. She vows to change this, and in this task wins over a whole range of characters. It is a common story line, but one which never fails to please me!

characters - for such a short series (5 volumes) I thought that the characters were well developed. There are ...

I gave it a 8 as it is very enjoyable and emotional that I cried a lot when I read this, but I can't give it a 10 because it has everything that any other shoujo manga has. A girl who's lucky enough to get so many guys to like her because she's strong and is willing to make a difference. I still personally think that this manga is very underrated because it's one of the darker shoujo mangas that deserve more attention from the public.

10/10 without a doubt. Not only is it original, the catch [being the different colored uniforms] is unbelievably...catchy! Once you start, you're like a fish on a hook who can't get away unless you hurt yourself. If you stop the series half-way to go to sleep, for example, you will crave it once you wake up.
Another thing is that this shoujo manga is about the guys falling for the girl and not vice-versa.

It's very "shoujo". How big the eyes were and how wide the face can get pretty annoying but it's nothing to fret over. The mini characters that appeared every once in a ...
