ANd cool, and awesome, and hot(lol) and all those other wors to descibe him. I love his personality and I love how he is easily embarrassed. He is just so ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!

ANd cool, and awesome, and hot(lol) and all those other wors to descibe him. I love his personality and I love how he is easily embarrassed. He is just so ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!! I want him. And for all of you who think this is creepy(which it kinda is), I tend to fall for awesome fictional male characters. I LOVE YOH. And you would too if you ever read the manga. Haruna. In the beginning of the manga I thought she was realy, really stupid. REALLY STUPID. And then later on I thought she was realy, really annoying and too much of a perfectionist. In the end, I ended up liking her. Maybe not in the ending because I didn't know my feelings for her in the end. She kinda made me have this weird angry-nice-weird-awkward vibe towards her. Her character is really thought out though. But overall, she's all right. In the beginning of the book, I thought the whole concept was really kinda dumb. I mean, a love coach. That's just kinda ridiculous and desperate, which Haruna was, but pathetic. Though that whole concept fades later n, it was just really ridiculous. Ri-dic-u-lous. Ridiculous. THere are many parts that made me laugh or gag when I was reading this manga. Let's look back in my brain and take a moment to laugh at them. HAHAHAHHA! LOL! LAWLS! OMG! OMG! HUH... FUNNY! AHHHAHAHHA LMAO!AHHAHAHH!hhohohohohohoho! omg! HILARIOUS.... Sigh... Huh... Funny. Overall, the series was really great and funny and entertaining and sweet and sad and I recommend it to everyone I know and don't know. Though, the guys out there might now like it. P.S. I really hate Assa. I like Fumi. I love Asaoka. ♥♥♥

    *sighs*I wonder how Yoh can stand Haruna. She is so oblivious and cringey. Plus she totally doesn't get that maybe he wants a date with HER, and not her forcing her best friend and his best friend together (who the hell does that when everyone is clearly saying NO to the idea). Awkwaaaaaaardddddd. There are some cute moments, but I think I would rather see this manga from Yoh's POV. Haruna just doesn't have any common sense 90% of the time. *sighs* *sighs*I wonder how Yoh can stand Haruna. She is so oblivious and cringey.

    I love Haruna and Yoh. So adorable together!! They have all these problems that arise, but it doesn't tear them apart. Obviously, they fight and ignore each other. After a couple pages though, they forgive one another. In so many mangas, some other boy or girl comes into the picture and breaks the main couple up. Thank god for this volume! I didn't quite get why the new girl was so pissed at Haruna. It's not her fault and it wasn't like she did anything malicious. I liked how Haruna was being al I love Haruna and Yoh.

It's not her fault and it wasn't like she did anything malicious. I liked how Haruna was being all dramatic and saying that the new girl was going to poison Yoh. Haruna has crazy antics, but it seems like Yoh, just shrugs it off because he likes that about her. One of my favorite parts was when Yoh got jealous of Asaokan (I forget what the dude's name was, but it was something like that). I know that Yoh likes Haruna, but he isn't as vocal about it as he should be and he sometimes comes off as indifferent about things. It was nice to see something come out of him. Haruna doesn't make it easy for Yoh though. I felt kinda bad for him, when Yoh wanted to be alone with her and she was too obsessed with her match-making venture. Though I'm still confused as to what was up with the best friend guy. Was he really acting? Cause it was kinda weird. I just can't stop reading these! I swear, I'm going to back off for a while. I have tons of things to do, but I glued to my iPod reading this series...

Haruna and her crazy insistent ideas... she determines to get Mami and Asaoka together and has them crash the date Yoh has planned... I too was a little incredulous as to Haruna's obtuseness!! Asaoka became such an interesting character with this... he knew Yoh was just jealous and knew how to push his buttons... haha, that Haruna was a little dazzled was funny too!! I loved her reactions though and how the mangaka had her repeat Asaoka like her brain was still processing what he said!! BOTTOM LINE: A worthy volume to this classic high school love story.

    Love this series. In this volume we have a new girl that enters the school that Haruna thinks is admiring her but instead the new girl Leona is trying to destroy Haruna and her relationship with Yoh. For some reason Leona has a major grudge against Haruna. Also in this volume Haruna has decided that her friend Mami needs to get a boyfriend since she is always there for Haruna. So she decides to have Yoh talk to his friend Asaoka to see if they can setup Mami and Asaoka. Let's just say things don Love this series.

Will this be the end of Haruna and Yoh. Or since Asaoka and Haruna go on a date could this be the beginning of something. You would have to read this series to find out. Which I recommend reading since it is a really cute series.

    "I didn't start liking you because of your muscles." Oh. My. God. That was priceless! I was laughing for minutes after that. It was Yoh who said that, not his girlfriend. I really liked this volume because they had their first fight, and it was interesting to see how they would handle it. I'm curious about Asaoka though. Is all that really acting? Gosh, he's good, if it's true. "I didn't start liking you because of your muscles." Oh. My. God. That was priceless! I was laughing for minutes after that.

    This series follows the main character, Haruna Nagashima, and her quest to find a boyfriend in high school. In junior high, Haruna was the star pitcher of her school's softball team and spent her time outside of practice reading romantic comics.

In junior high, Haruna was the star pitcher of her school's softball team and spent her time outside of practice reading romantic comics. Now that she's in high school, she devotes her time to finding herself a boyfriend ("her high school debut" as she calls it). However, she is completely clueless when it comes to fashion, dating, and boys, so she asks upperclassmen Yoh Komiyama to become her "coach" in these areas. He agrees on one condition: she must not by any circumstances fall for him. The books consist of Haruna's comical adventures at high school and outside of school with Yoh, his sister, and they're group of friends, along with various other characters who appear throughout the series. Age: Young Adult Reader (Ages 15-18) Rating 4 out of 5 stars for: Art: The artist has a very defined, unique style that sets her drawing apart from others (you can easily pick out her drawings out of a selection of artists). Not my favorite type of art, as sometimes proportions and anatomy are lacking. However, the artist has an incredibly talent for drawing clothing/accessories and this makes up for it! Writing: The story's pacing is straight-forward and plot development is consistent throughout series. Each chapter consists of a smaller stories that seam together to create Haruna's high school experience. The characters Kawahara writes are interesting - they are distinct from one another and personalities interact with one another in a realistic way. Haruna is portrayed as a juxtaposition - loud, hyper, pure, gullible and easily fooled at times, yet also resilient, wise, thoughtful, caring and steadfast loyal. (Most of the characters have these ups and downs to their personalities making them more dimensional). Great, laugh out loud comedy throughout the book, too! Recommended to mostly older teens who enjoy reading teen romantic-comedy manga.

    And naturally, Haruna's rivals are as whack and ridiculous as her. I enjoyed this volume as well, I'm liking the development between Yoh and Haruna. Throw in Asaoka, Mami and some jealousy and we have a lovely volume. Looking forward to the next. And naturally, Haruna's rivals are as whack and ridiculous as her.

The strongest storyline in this volume is the new transfer student Leona coming into Haruna's class and being fired up at seeing her: Haruna - who as we know is clueless to subtle cues - interprets her passionate interest as admiration! Yoh and Mami, who don't have her feeling, are pretty sure Haruna is being hated - it turns out that Leona, who unlike Haruna has turned into a boy-magnet (I love the gesture she uses to manipulate guys ^^ - finger under the chin, heee), was a very successful batter in middle school but got foiled regularly by Haruna's pitches, and has never forgiven her for that. How she tries to manipulate Haruna into accepting her rivalry and making her look stupid (leading to a very cute incarceration of Yoh and Haruna in a sports equipment room - with Haruna being all fired up trying to save Yoh from this captivity ^^) and the show-down baseball battle outside the school in the snow, while they're wearing their sailor suits, is just comedy gold. Leona from then on gets used occasionally to give Haruna some other impetus or feedback(as Mami always supports her and Asami is only used as a selfish brat to throw spikes into her relationship with Yoh from now on (or to help, depending on what Kawahara-sensei wants to be happening). She comes in handy when the next storyline makes Haruna think that maybe Asaoka and Mami would make a great couple, after all Asami has Fumi and Haruna has Yoh, so wouldn't that be perfect. It's a comedy of errors again and at the end of the second to last chapter - to elevate from clichè school comedy - Yoh and Haruna actually have the only falling out of the entire series which can be put down to childishness and saying to much in the heat of the moment from BOTH sides. And like in real life they're not able to overcome it themselves, because of hurt pride. So on the one hand you can see them both pouting (makes me like Yoh ever so much more, that he's not continuously the suave mentor type person in their relationship - the longer the series goes one the less that is the case, anyway), on the other hand Asaoka takes a hand in making Yoh jealous with Haruna (who's not really sold on that idea, but can't see how to bridge the gap on her own): I do like that Kawahara-sensei doesn't leave us in any doubt that Yoh and Haruna both still love each other. Asaoka becomes the major tease who you aren't sure is actually teasing for the rest of the series. He's the one of the group of friends who hardly ever seems to show his true face, but again I credit it to the mangaka that he didn't take over the series with this enigma.

    Turns out Haruna has a rival to with a transfer student. Not a fan of this type of storyline since it can be cliche and has been done before. With these series, for some reason I didn't mind it all that much but at time same I did. Still a good volume. Turns out Haruna has a rival to with a transfer student.

    Slice-of-life shoujo romance that's like a much less angsty version of Marmalade Boy (to its detriment, honestly) except with a heroine who is genki as fuck. Cute enough but where could this possibly be going? Still have no idea how it's going to last for 8 more volumes.
