I am writing about the overall series. I finsihed reading the entire series on January 7, 2011.

The overal series was pretty great. I gave it a 4 star rating. Let's talk about some things now.

I. Love. Yoh. I just love him. He is so adorable! Andd I hate that I have to say that. But I can't help myself, he is SO ADORABLE! ANd cool, and awesome, and hot(lol) and all those other wors to descibe him. I love his personality and I love how he is easily embarrassed. He is just so ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!! I w

So, really, I assure you that I do, in fact, read. I just don't list all the comics on here, so that I can conceal the sheer volume of how much I consume.

But I'm popping back in with volume 8 of HSD because it's my favorite of the series so far, and because I just feel such affection for the central couple: super-reserved, slightly acerbic hottie Yoh and naive, eternally peppy ex-jock Haruna. With about nothing in common but their mutual devotion, Yoh and Haruna manage to come through their (mos
It's a new school year which means new students which means competition! In love! After Haruna and Yoh showed off that they were a couple to all the freshmen all the girls backed off of him, but that didn't hinder the three guys chasing after Haruna, not one bit! Even though their desire for Haruna is blatant, she is completely oblivious. Yoh tells her to be careful around the freshmen boys but she forgets and lets her guard down, and one of the boys make a move on her! Will this disaster leave ...more
This is a really cute series. Yoh, most definitely channeled his inner Haruna during the second half of the book when he tried to figure out what to do for her birthday. He stepped out of his comfort zone and was able to give Haruna what she wanted.

In the first half Haruna was her usual self freaking out because some freshman kissed her. It was hilarious when Yoh kissed the guy so they would be even.

It's a really great series and they make a cute couple. Their both so awkward.
Yea! This volume was so much better than #7. I appreciate Haruna's energy and excitement and Yoh always finds a way to be perfectly sweet in the end. Going to have to put this series on my purchase list for school. The students who read shojo manga will love it!
one of the best birthday in manga I've ever read...

Haha, oh my god, this volume was so unnecessarily dramatic. Everything was blown out of proportion and it had me rolling my eyes. Either way, I still enjoyed reading it. The whole accidental kiss thing was down-right ridiculous. Some random dude kisses Haruna and then she goes off on some mental breakdown and contemplates jumping off a roof. She's so dramatic. Yoh kept telling her it was ok, but she kept going psycho. The dude that tried to kiss her was a jerk though. However, I did laugh when h ...more
This series shows the truth for girls and high school. I love it. High school Debut is a book that can be so true in so many levels. This series shows a high school freshman named Haruna who wants to find love, but never seeing that she was trying too hard until she meets a sophomore named Yoh. He agrees to teach her how to get a boyfriend. Of course this helps her by getting new friends and getting an eye opener. But of course, in the end, Haruna and Yoh's relationship ends up somewhere they'd ...more
I had a few more qualms about this volume than the others.... Like the whole kiss-then-freak-out thing; which I thought was not only ridiculously mellow dramatic, but just entirely dumb. But it was remedied by the adorable birthday scene at the end of the volume... So cute :)

It's Haruna's birthday. As she anticipates what Yoh will do, Yoh himself thinks what present he should get her. Easier said than done. Moments where I was thinking, what's going on? Near the ending it got cute then sad then cute again.

Haruna's birthday is coming up and Yoh is freaking out what to do for her.
Their relationship is becoming deeper. They both want to make sure the other is okay and happy.
I find it adorable the Yoh is becoming flustered when it comes to making Haruna happy. And that he is jealous of the attention the freshman boys are giving her.
J'ai été surprise par ce tome que j'ai trouvé meilleur que le précédent.Enfin la première partie ne m'a pas passionnée avec les prétendants de Haruna mais j'ai bien aimé la seconde avec la préparation de l'anniversaire de l'héroïne.C'est plutôt mignon même si ce n'est toujours pas transcendant.
it's impossible to express how much i like high school debut, mostly because i'm rolling about on the floor giggling. it's an instant blues banisher.

This series is utterly amazing! I rented all 13 books from the library and finished them all within a week, I was too hooked!!

First read count recorded on 4.14.15. This does not conclude the actual date on which this book was first read.

OMG the whole birthday part was so ADORABLE!!! I loved it! Yoh is such a great boyfriend!!!!!! Lucky Haruna...
Kind of a funny coincidence that I finished reading this on May 5, since that is Haruna's birthday in the comic.

Yoh is so sweet when he manages to get over his awkwardness on how to show his feelings for Haruna
Another cute one. Yoh is becoming a little more complex and actually flourishing.
i laughed hard with this one. Very unexpected story with a problem and outcome.
