For 15-year-old Uka Ishimori, middle school was the toughest experience she lived through. She was dubbed "Stone" 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.

I love Honey Lemon Soda. It does sound like a typical shoujo manga where shy girls meet bad boy but what I like the most about this is how the characters grow and the nice balance between that having the light fluffiness of a usual shoujo would have.
The main girl character, Uka, is super shy that she doesn't talk much and gets bullied. Through this manga it is a gradual change for her to stand up for herself. Then there is also the main boy character, Kai. He is a not a 'bad boy' per say, I would say that he is someone that enjoys ...

I am shocked that this adorable manga has not received a single review yet! I am fairly sure that this manga is quite popular, yet I haven't seen much hype or reviews so I shall start one now.

Plot (8/10): This manga is almost a replica of Kimi Ni Todoke, story wise. This manga is about a girl name Uka Ishimori who is constantly misunderstood and bullied for her odd behavior of freezing at a presence of someone else. Uka desperately wants to change herself and dreams of having longtime friends. She believed that what she was striving for was an impossible dream, until she ...

Edit: Y'all I thought I liked this manga and then I read the latest chapter (54) and I'm seriously starting to question my own taste. If you're a fan of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, this manga is like that trash shoujo Let's Fall in Love that Nozaki pens. I could totally imagine that Murata Mayu is just the pen name of some degenerate bum high school dude who has no idea what romance is and just randomly inserts fluffy chapters and stupid devices that have no basis in plot and somehow manages to make a hit manga because clearly all it takes to make a hit ...
