Author: Yamamori Mika
Chapters: Around 78
I read this manga due to a recommendation online. Since I have a fondness particularly for Shoujou since I find Shounen manga harder to read, I immediately tried it out. This manga is about a girl named Suzume who moves to a new school, and before she knows it, she is trapped in one of those cliché love triangles.
Overall Review (No Spoilers)
This manga was a really fun read and I loved all the characters in the manga. Suzume is a very tomboy-ish girl and she meets Shishio as she moves into Tokyo from her home. When school starts, she finds out that Shishio is actually her teacher and meets another guy named Mamura, with whom she becomes friends with.
I’m not a huge fan of love triangles for obvious reasons: they’re cliché and unrealistic. But this manga did a really good job of not making me annoyed. This was particularly because of the characters and their well developed personality. They each had something inside and I loved how they both interacted with Suzume. Though there were definitely some parts that were a little cheesy and awkward, I genuinely did enjoy Hirunaka no Ryuusei.
I would recommend this manga to anyone who wants a good Shoujou to read. It isn’t as long as other Shoujou manga and the storyline is really simple and straight forward.
