Honey and Clover does a brilliant job depicting daily life without making it boring. However, since the series is essentially just a prolonged stay with a group of friends, the audience does not get to see the fruition of all of the conflicts. Much like real life, very few things are cast in stone. With a relatively open ending, the audience is left insatiably wanting more. By the end of the series, it is hard not to relate with at least one character. It wouldn’t be surprising if you relate wit ...more

This a really, really good series. I started it a really long time ago (back when the Shojo Beat magazine was still running), but then never got around to continuing it. I picked it back up a little while ago, though, and it really reminded me how much I like this series.

Back when I first read it, I really liked the humor, and the characters. Now that it’s been so long (and I’ve mature), and now that I’m in college, I find that I can appreciate the c

Oh my Ra!! The unicorn thing!!! I nearly died from the hysterical laughing! I especially loved that they ended everything they said with "dammit"!! Oh lawd, hilarious!

Geez... poor Ayu :-( I understand how she must feel (not personally, but knowing someone pretty well who feels sort of the same way she does about someone). Though at the same time, I want her to have nothing to do with Nomiya. Because even though he said he loved her... I don't really know if I believe it. Umino-san may mean it as

mối quan hệ của các cặp đôi trong truyện đã dần dần được giải quyết, ngay cả anh chàng Nomiya cũng đã thổ lộ với Ayu rồi !!!
có lúc tôi muốn ghét Mayama, nhưng lại không ghét được, tình cảm đâu thể gượng ép, cậu ấy tìm thấy hạnh phúc của mình bên Rika, còn Ayu thấy hạnh phúc khi ở bên cậu ấy, vì trân trọng cả 2 nên đều đối xử dịu dàng, nhưng với người con gái cậu yêu sẽ có phần đặc biệt hơn. Thế rồi cậu ấy cũng chờ được đến lúc tình cảm đơn phương ấy được đáp trả. Dành tất cả tâm trí cho người yê

Rika and Mayama are becoming closer and closer as Rika draws closer and closer to the edge.

Ayu is trying to let go of her love for Mayama, whether she realizes it or not, while being chased by Nomiya.

Is Mayama going to be able to find his way into a part of Rika's heart where he is welcomed to stay?

Will Ayu allow Nomiya to carry her before she falls?

And what is the secret behind Morita's vicious money-making ways?

ayu still longs for mayama, although nomiya pursues her with renewed vigor. rika announces her plans to visit spain and finish the last project she worked on with her dead husband. she tells mayama he is coming with her. then she makes plans to go without him. then she changes her mind and makes plans for him to join her. then she goes by herself. that rika! the state of takemoto & hagumi's relationship remains uncertain.

Ugh Mayama-Rika's working out pretty well. Poor Yamada's miserable and now scared to fall in love. (I can't believe I'm writing words like "scared to fall in love". I didn't expect this.)

Hagu's not on the spotlight lately, and Morita's still mysterious. Takemoto's now tough.

Why is this called Honey and Clover, by the way?

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.

I was rather upset to find out that Riya was using Takumi...and Shinobu wasn't in it enough! I particularly liked when Shu threw him over the fence and all his money falls
I still gave it a 4 stars however because Nomiya is so...well, nommable. :D

The anime series only covers the first seven volumes so I finally entered unfamiliar territory. One love triangle has a resolution! This is such a beautiful series.
