Every day, Ten Serizawa boards the 6:00 a.m. bus and travels two long hours to get to school. She is perfectly content with her decision to commute from home, even though there is a boarding house just seven minutes away from her school. However, it also means that Ten can never spend enough time with her friends after school.

Ten does not mind missing out on all the fun until one day, her friend Ageha Haruna brings her to the boarding house that she has been living at. What Ten does not expect is the fluttery excitement that comes with sharing a space with one's schoolmates. As the day progresses, her resolve wavers and she finds herself second-guessing her living arrangements.

Just when she is struggling with her dilemma, a couple of strange encounters with the solemn Chiaki Kasedera and the casual Riku Mikuhara ultimately lead Ten to a realization—she cannot wait to try living in the boarding house.

Maybe you'll like the story more than I did, so I think it's ...

This was pretty amazing imo..I wasn't expecting so much from it but because it's from the same author as a sign of affection I read it and it was an emotional rollercoaster. It's not just a love story actually it is a journey of forgiveness and acceptance .. I really hate love triangles that is the reason I put the manga on to read for so long but I am glad I read it ..they didn't complicate things actually with the love interests and everyone was happy with what they got ... All the characters are likable and their actions are understandable .. overall it ...

I hate to say it, but this was a great romance manga. I personally don't enjoy reading romance manga, but the story had me hooked, the art was flawless, the character development was to die for.

I'm so happy I got to read this series and I even took some dating tips away from it. Try to be more like Riku!

The love that unfolded, the little side characters that appeared, every tiny detail the writers and artists placed in these 12 novels made me fall even deeper in love with the story.

The side stories were amazing, the little fillers and the development of even the ...
