1) I wonder whether I should be creeped out by the fact that so many people are fascinated with Hagu. I love Hagu and think she's super interesting and all that, but Morita and Takemoto basically fell in love with her at first sight because she was ... small? I think? Which is a bit disturbing.

2) Mayama is more likeable in the manga, I think. Or maybe I am just trying harder to see what Aya sees in him. I don't think I'll ever be fond of him; he is such a jerk.
I’m not a drama lover. This manga series is very meaningful. It’s not princess like fairy tale drama. Definitely not for young people.

You will only understand the deep meaning to every words once you experienced them. This series is grown up and some young viewers will find it boring.

I mentioned in my review of volume one that I was confused as to what the main storyline of this manga series is... and from volume 2, I'd guess it's really nothing? It seems what this series is all about is just the development of the characters and their love interests. I'm not sure if this is an accurate assumption, it is only what the volumes have shown me thus far.

Hagu is a cute character...but I am still slightly disturbed by her... in this volume she's 19... still looks and acts like an 8
Overall Rating: A
Summary: A Comedy/Drama/Romance shōjo manga series created by Chika Umino, which follows three students at a fictional art college in Tokyo. The students, Yūta Takemoto, Takumi Mayama and Shinobu Morita, all live in the same apartment complex. Takemoto is the youngest, and is the shy artist-type one would expect to find at an art school. Mayama is the most reasonable of the three, and is a stark contrast to Morita, who is still in college because he can't wake up in time to go t

Buhahahaa... Saikou da!! Koko no hanashi wa.. \(≧∇≦)/

Muncul si Kirin-san yang kesepian dan kedinginan, dibawa dari negeri tropis, biar anak-anak Jepang bisa lihat.. Tapi kenyataannya, kebun binatangnya malah sepi nggak ada yang nontonin.. (T^T)

Terus.. terus.. terus.. Di sini juga yang pada mainin Twister ajaib. Siapa lagi kalo bukan si Morita senpai yang buat?? Hadiah ulang tahun buat Takemoto, bikinin permainan Twister ajaib! Bayangin aja! Twister kan biasanya cuma ada empat warna doang: merah,
Super story and character development.
The art is lovely as well.
a group of college students become friends and the story follows their individual progression as artists, friends, and at times, lovers.
Enjoying this series more. This volume was a little serious, dealing with the pasts of Takemoto, Rika, and Hagu, and Mayama's plans for the future. More romantic tension with our two love triangles. Poignant moments too, like the scene in the clover field.
Some hilarious laugh-out-loud moments, like that ridiculous game of Twister, the psychotic poodle, Yamada's masterpiece, and Morita still struggling to graduate! The well-timed over-the-top art makes it even funnier. Looking forward to more of
The story arcs are really starting to gather steam. I enjoyed the use of flashbacks and inner monologue from the characters. The change in art style from chibi to the more normal whispy Honey & Clover lines really helped to emphasize the dramatic passages.

Ayumi seemed the most tragic to me from the anime. It will be interesting to see if I have the same opinion from the manga.

in which...we find out more about mayama's love for his employer. takemoto visits home. morita fails to graduate again. professor hanamoto leaves hagumi behind when he goes on a research trip. and i keep mixing yamada and mayama's names up. and things continue to be silly.
Takemoto goes back to his hometown for the first time in years to face his stepfather he resents for stealing his mother away. While Ayu and Mayama's feelings for each other bubble to the surface. Ahh, this semester reeks sour and sweet the smell of youth.

Still like this story. The college kids had me laughing in some of the parts but in this one it had some sad moments. Especially with Sensei going away for a year. But this is still a cute and funny series to read.
yeah, I still don't get the fuss over this series

call me if there's more rika-harada-hanamoto flashbacks though, i'm always into intense friendship triads

I'm really enjoying this series. It's a good realistic fiction manga with lovely storytelling.
All I have to say is: why is this manga so ridiculously cute? Ah... guilty pleasures.
The second volume was just as good as the first, with a lot more character development.
One of my all time favorite manga series.
Love the chibi faces <3
