Mafuyu Sone was caught petting a girl at school and is sent to live with her brother Takashi in Tokyo. Takashi's hospitality is sorely tested when the other girl, Sae Shirai, also shows up. Sae has been disowned by her parents and has nowhere else to go. Just as Takashi is finally getting used to the situation, feelings cool between Mafuyu and Sae. Decency forces Takashi to act like a big brother for the distraught Sae, but he discovers this means trouble for his own relationship with Mariko Abe.

Just finished reading all of Haru yo Koi. I remember first hearing about this manga back when only the first few chapters were scanslated, and fast forward a few years, I finally have the chance to read the whole thing, and I must say, Saki Kaori, though known more for his pornographic comics, really knows how to tell a heartful story.

Haru yo Koi, despite the initial premise, is really about the main character Sone and his various relationships. We see his first real girlfriend, and then his side girlfriend, and we see the end of those relationships. Fast forward and we see another two girls read more

A dramatic seinen manga about the twists and turns of an emotionally immature college student's love life that isn't quite as good as the sum of its parts.

For most of the manga, the focus is on four main characters:

- Takashi: The aforementioned student, who is living alone until the start of the story, until his sister (and his sister's female lover) move in with him.

- Mafuyu: Takashi's sister, a high school student experimenting with sex and love for the first time.

- Sae: Mafuyu's bisexual girlfriend, who has dropped out of high school and is chasing her lover.

- Mariko: A girl with a crush on read more

First off - anyone reading this that is expecting it to be a yuri-centric manga, drop those expectations right now. The story clearly focuses on Takashi and his relationships with various women, including the main heroine Sae. Sae herself is obviously bisexual and her meeting with Takashi was through her relationship with Takashi's sister who is an experimenting lesbian. Other than that tenuous link and a few panels of ecchi drawings, the story does not focus on characters sexual orientations at all.

That being said, this manga is pretty good. The art is nice and clear, with panels easy to follow and without overblown tones read more

Despite the somewhat lighthearted tone, I consider this work a serious coming-of-age seinen romance manga, particularly exploring adolescent sexuality.

With these premises, you shouldn't be reading it as a romantic romance drama, but a story focusing on the troubles coming along with sex and love, and how do people grow with these problems.

The plot revolves around several adolescents who are not so experienced with love and sex encounter various situations relating to these themes. They are frequently stumbled by the difficulties caused by their immaturity; in the end, although they are heavily scarred, they learn from the pain and step towards the happy future.
