What does it mean to be in love? The troubles of understanding how another person feels, and what your own feelings are; that's what this manga focuses on so far.

The story is about Hananoi, a handsome yet lonely guy falling in love with Hotaru, a rather ordinary but thoughtful girl.
Hotaru always had trouble understanding feelings like love as she never felt that way herself, so after Hananoi confessed to her, they decided to date on "trial" before giving him a definite answer in order for her to figure out how she feels. Hananoi is pretty much the exact opposite, always giving it his all (or too much, actually) in order to convey his feelings. Needless to say, they make for an interesting couple.

Hananoi has a somewhat mysterious side to him, since it is shown that he only is kind towards Hotaru and nobody else, and it's in some way "suspicious" why he goes to such extents to win her over sometimes.

What I like about this manga so far is that, even though the beginning of their relationship is rather sudden, it takes it's time to slowly but constantly develop further. Especially from the view of Hotaru, exploring what it feels like to fall in love with someone.
Also, it didn't introduce a dozen side characters alongside, most of the side-characters are just "there", but basically all the focus is solely spent on the main couple.
