For 15-year-old Uka Ishimori, middle school was the toughest experience she lived through. She was dubbed "Rocky" due to always freezing up in front of other people and was endlessly bullied as a result. Now in high school, she has a chance for a fresh start and to improve herself. But during her first week, she is accidentally soaked in juice by her classmate Kai Miura, a flashy guy with lemon-colored hair.

On paper, Kai is everything that Uka lacks—he is popular, aloof, and bold enough to speak his mind. Despite their contrasting personalities, Kai encourages her to slowly come out of her shell, offering a helping hand when others avoided to do so. Although Uka initially wanted to forge friendships, she has realized her true feelings—she has fallen in love with Kai. What started with a lemon soda is about to change Uka and Kai's lives forever.

Preliminary (66/? eps)
My first official review in MAL.

I like how the MC develops each time when there are trials BUT never resort going back to where the MC started in the first place as an insecure and lonely human being.

I like how each the MC makes tough decisions and ready to face consequences. The MC also draws ...

Preliminary (66/? eps)
everything about this manga is just 10/10! I have enjoyed reading it so far and cannot wait to read it even more!! The characters are superb and each has very unique characteristics. I love watching Kai's and Uka's stories and own lives unfold slowly... seeing their character developments is also a joy. I would recommend this to anyone who loves love! I know it's cheesy to say that but I think their love story is unique and it seems as if it's like every other love story, but that's what makes it even more captivating. Their polar opposite personalities make it even more amusing and ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (71/? eps)
reminds me of Kimi ni Todoke and Usui of Maid sama because of Kai. Would still prefer kimi ni todoke because of it's wholesomeness and I don't really enjoy the first few chapters of this manga but still kinda glad i kept through coz it do get better in the middle. however as for the latest? last few chapters, i kinda got tired reading it coz it still seems that their relationship is not moving and another character is added and it feels like i was reading the same chapters over and over again due to them celebrating culture fest and then after awhile they ...
