3/5 stars.
This series if fluff, and several volumes longer than it needed to be. It still makes me ridiculously happy; Hana-Kimi is one of those series I go back to when I'm in an emotional slump, or need something to eat up the hours of a long day.

This is an interesting short tale about a young Japanese American teenager, Mizuki, who becomes infatuated with a Japanese boy, Izumi Sano who is handsome and athletic. She moves to Japan and enrolls in an all male high school where she becomes his roommate. The boy is skilled at the high jump and competes frantically with his older brother who is a champion at the event. The two are estranged and the fact that their father coaches the younger brother does nothing to ease the situation. Sano, Sh ...more

Oh my god!!!1! I loooove this seriesss!! It's my favorite shoujo series and my second favorite manga series of ALL TIME! I just love everything about it!!

It's all so great! I can't contain the fan-girl in me! :O I even loved the TV series! (Especially the Taiwanese one! Ella and Jiro were hilarious!)

I binge read all of Hana Kimi. It's easy to see why that is so easy once you get into the second chapter of the series. Hana Kimi is filled with complex character moments, tension, and fun. All the characters come to life and its hard to put the story down. I've read my fair share of manga over the years and will continue to. I have the feeling that Hana Kimi will remain one of my favorites. I can't wait to get in a reread.

The show I really like and wasn't sure if I wanted to read the manga. But did and its pretty good. The art is fun and hilarious at times and Nakatsu of course is adorable. This one volume was also good.
While not the best volume of Hana-Kimi, I still enjoyed it because of Sano, Shin, and Kagurazaka. They're all pretty good together, and I especially like Shin's and Mizuki's friendship.

As always, Mizuki is adorable. She and Sano almost made more progress, but not really.

I didn't really notice with the previous volumes but the art had totally improved. The story focused on the relationship between Sano and Shin, while Mizuki tried to help. It wasn't totally interesting but it was cute.

This story keeps getting more and more interesting. Izumi's brother is introduced in this book and I can't wait to see the dynamic between the two brothers. I wonder how much longer Ashiya can continue to pretend to be a boy before Sano says he knows shes a girl.

I really like reading about the Sano family problems, it distracts from the non-action that is Ashiya's love life.
