But as fate would have it, they're more than classmates...they're roommates! Now...more
I reread it a couple of years ago and I was seriously disappointed, since I remembered enjoying it so much. It's not awful, and it's still entertaining, but it doesn't stand out at all.

Hana-Kimi is truly an amazing manga. I really loved it. I've actually finished reading it on MangaFox. So, if it's so amazing, why am I only giving it four stars? Well, my q...more
Anyway, I haven't read the whole entire series, so I'll just give my opinion for those of you scrolling through reviews wondering what manga will be your next favorite read.
First of all, I first discovered Hana-Kimi in Asian Drama form. I LOOOOOOOVE the drama of Hana-Kimi. The drama is adorable and addicting to watch. It's one of my favorite asian dramas.
When I saw Hana-Kimi in manga form sitting on the shelves of my school library, I i...more
Hey, have you ever tried to be a girl in an all boys’ high school? Or even the other way around? Well, Mizuki Ashiya did, this is the story of why she did this, and what is her priorities of the crazy decision of love and admiration. Other than Mizuki there is also a miserable male named, Izumi Sano (who is also Mizuki's admiration), and his mission to become a glorious high-jump champion, after his injury and his broken family.

I really don't have much to say apart from 1) The drawings are very very neat and 2)I've always had difficulties when it comes to learning japanese names so I'm still getting everyone mixed up :c
But I'm having fun, it's kind of going faster than the drama so I'm not sure if this is going to spoil me or not ;_;
Anyways, I'll find out...more
There are some things similar, and other completely different. So far my favorite character is Nakatsu, who is nervous because he likes Ashiya, who is supposed to be a boy. Ikuta Toma portrays him wonderfully. But again, e...more
Of the inconsistencies, one that really stood out is how the hell she made it into an all boys school. I mean, as soon as a school does a background check, she's caught. The only thing I can come up with is that she somehow submitted incorrect background information about herself. Of course, she doesn't really seem smart enough for this. But, I'll get into her c...more
اشتريت هالكتاب من كينوكونيا في دبي و كان المجلدات الثلاث الاولى مع بعض في كتاب واحد
خلصته امس مع اني قاريه المانغا كلها من زمان اول ما عرفت المانغا XD
الرسم جميل جداً و يستاهل اني اشتريه وامسكه في يدي و اتأمل التفاصيل على راحتي *_*
Don't know why the Japanese have such gender-bender love but it does make for an excellent story!
Light-hearted almost cutesy 85% of the time but there is some real stuff in here too but that's what makes it interesting.
I love this manga. It's so cute! I love all the characters and how they interact with each other and the whole situation is just hilarious but wonderful when you see all that she is willing to put herself through.(I've read them all but won't list them all)
|I love the drama they made for it but the korean version is ehhh....||6||24||Jan 26, 2013 04:40am|
