FIVE WORDS: Cutest female friendship portrayal ever.

And that is enough for me to love this manga. I am giving it four stars solely because of the excellent friendship portrayed in the manga. While the romance was kawaii and well, romance-y no breakthroughs were made in that department, and I am content with that.

And oh, the art. So pretty.

The focal point of the story is a healthy friendship between two girls and because I read the one shot a fortnight ago, I can't really remember the finer poi

Anyone who has read Kawahara Kazune's other works will know, without reading it, that this manga has an amazing story. Profound in its simplicity and absolutely beautiful in its execution.

Her stories always seem to give a great message on life and living, without taking themselves too seriously. They make you laugh, make you cry sometimes (mostly laugh). and you are filled with this fluffy glowing pink feeling all the time.

Now add to that the art of Aiji Yamakawa. Its so dynamic and so differen

ngl I read this every time I finish a book I'm not enjoying, or just get to a really tense or annoying part, because it feels like I'm cleansing myself of all impurities and refreshing myself, it makes me stronger and my skin clearer, I would fight for Moe and Eiko
This was a very interesting manga about friendship.

There are 3 chapters (and a bonus, but that one features another character that doesn't seem to have to do anything with the characters from the first 3 chapters). The first chapter is about Eiko, the best friend of Moe, and how she feels to be around Moe. We get to know the girls and how they feel about each other and also what happens when Moe gets a boyfriend. The second chapter is from the perspective of the best friend of the boyfriend from

I feel every rating I give comes with a disclaimer. Five stars! Gee whiz! This must be the perfect shojo! Not exactly, but Tomodachi no Hanashi, or "The Secret of Friendship" IS a step in the right direction. As a reader, I gotta support the hell out of that. But since you're dying to know what's wrong with it, here you are:

Imperfection Number 1: It's short. Three point five chapters equals one volume. So, the ride is over in about an hour. : (

Imperfection Number 2: The first chapter is slow.

go to blog to see the pics :D :D

This manga is only 3 chapters long, but that chapters are long and you het to feel all the characters thoroughly. Another awesome fact about this manga? Well, if you already noticed it’s a collaboration from two amazing mangakas. The story is by kazuna Kawahara and the art is by Aiji Yamakawa. You should know Kawahara se-sensei as the person who brought us “high school debut” and Yamakawa Aiji is famous for “Stand Up!” and “Balanci

To have a best friend means you're having another self of yourself. How cute

I disegni sono un po' diversi da quello cui sono abituata, da avida lettrice di shojo. E la storia mi ha lasciato parecchio perplessa. Quel rapporto d'amicizia non è mica tanto sano. E ci ho messo quattro giorni a finirlo
