This volume kicks off with Chapter:1-6.

This was one of Watase's more confusing series pertaining to chapters, because every volume starts back at Chapter 1.
The plot is a quick moving one, and doesn't stagnate. The main character Tanpopo(Dandelion) transfers to a top academy in Tokyo from Hokkaido. In the U.S. this would be equivilant to Hickville Alabama public school going to Harvard University. This seems to be a popular theme in manga dealing with bullies, and I love how Tanpopo approaches e

its sooo cute how friends first meet in manga. even ones that hate you. and onces you have to watch out for. this book showed me so much. but alot of times still went the long way out and still lost alot.

great read

I LIED! Jk I mean my prediction was wrong. So so wrong. Guess the girl isn't SUPER dense after all, she likes the rich guy now. Which honestly is not where I expected this manga to go at all... this is why Special A continues to be one of my favorites, just because the main girl is SO SO dense. Like she's hilarious because she's dense. In this case, though, Tanpop is dense too, but not to that extent. In this volume, we get introduced to Kyogoku, a prodigy in hacking. I don't really know how to ...more

Tanpopo and Koki try and make the planting committee into an official club but the student council president refuses unless Tanpopo gets rid of the girl hassling him. As Tanpopo tries she finds out that the girl is pregnant and just what a jerk the class president really is. As well as this we have the budding romance between Tanpopo (who got in on a scholarship and is looked down on by everyone) and koki (practically school royalty)

While I prefer Yuu Watase's fantasy stuff there's no denying sh

Okay, Arisa makes this volume more interesting. And what's-his'name, Wacko/Psycho etc. Hacking the school and terrorizing the place. Awesome! (view spoiler) Sticking by your friends no matter what, admirable.
Un peu moins drôle que ses autres séries mais le but de valoriser l'amitié est bien.

Classmate and grade-A hacker, Aoi Kyogoku, has just shut down all the power in the school, and trapped Koki and Tanpopo alone together in an elevator. Tanpopo is terribly afraid of the dark AND cramped spaces, so now Koki's chivalry and affections force him to find a way out of the elevator, but meanwhile so much could happen in such close quarters!
Later, in hopes of having just a simple club that has every say-so over the newly planted flowers on the school grounds, Tanpopo and Koki take up the
he artwork in Imadoki! is fantastic - this was one of my first manga series and the art immediately drew me in. Yuu Watase utilizes her artwork well: it's rarely (if ever) confusing or ill-placed. Unfortunately, the plot isn't quite as gorgeous as the artwork: poor girl at a rich school crushing on the richest rich boy isn't exactly original, but this volume offers originality in the form of the planting club, which Tanpopo and Koki want to start. Council member Ogata says he'll allow it only i ...more

Dijilid kali ini muncul tokoh baru, Kyougoku Aoi, Kireta (psycho) yang pengennya dipanggil Kire-chan XD dan juga Uchimura Arisa, ko-gal yang awalnya nyebelin, tapi jadi berteman juga sama Tanpopo. Dikomik Imadoki ini, Kyougoku jadi salah satu favoritku berdua dengan Saionji Tsukiko. Kyougoku agak rese', Tsuki hitung-hitungan mulu kerjanya hahaha (^_^) #klop.

Tanpopo juga mulai menyadari perasaannya terhadap Kugyo. Mungkin setelah insiden di lift jadi berdebar-debar rasanya *lha, jadi lagu mojako*

Tanpopo Yamazaki is a young girl entering Meio Academy, which is a very posh, exclusive school. Almost everyone who attends is a son or daughter of someone rich and/or very powerful. Tanpopo, on the other hand, managed to get in by having excellent grades.

It's somewhat like Boys Over Flowers in that the other students look down on her and treat her in a bad way. Matters get complicated when she meets a boy who appears to be nice (and who happens to be sort of a "big man on campus" type), but who

I love this series but I do not this volume. Its one of the weakest volumes of any Watase manga that I've read.

This volume introduces two new characters, who are actually great characters, especially Arisa. But even though they are great, how they are introduced to the story is pretty awful. Tanpopo should be pressing charges against Aoi, rather than befriending him, and Arisa doesn't come off much better.

When I decided to re-read this series, I debated skipping this volume. Obviously I decided

enjoyable quite cute and funny.
follows a young student who has just started high school and updates with all her crazy antics. not being the most popular studebt doesnt knock her back as she and her companion (a fox) spend they're days enjoying life. sheds both happy and sad moments i thought this manga was adorable.

Nyooooooo, nambah lagi satu tokoh yang gendeng sempurna. Kyougoku Aoi, si maniak komputer yang dengan seenaknya mensabotase keamanan sekolah demi membuktikan keunggulan dirinya.

Haissh, interaksi penuh pertengkaran antara Kyougoku dengan Saionji Tsukiko; gadis matre pendengki yang selama ini pura-pura menjadi teman baik Tanpopo bikin saya nggak berhenti ketawa.

Well, this volume was certainly much better than the first. The characters in this series seem to be super extreme...and it's curious to me how even after they do something awful, they all suddenly just become friends. If only real life actually worked that way.

I was glad to see Koki act like a human being in this volume instead of a complete ass.

Life of the young and drama ridden. I never thought I would like a manga like this, but it is very entertaining. I love the new character Kyogoku (Flippy). Although he is most definitely twisted, there is something about him I really like.

Yamazaki dan Kouki ada yang mengincar di Meoi School tempat mereka sekolah. Dengan rencana matang seseorang, mereka terjebak di dalam lift hanya berdua saja. Seluruh listrik disekolah mati total. Dan dalangnya adalah Kyougoku Aoi, anak arsitek Meoi School yang sangat jago sekali komputer...

Seeing a lot more character development here, and additional characters that really help flesh the story out. I thought the first one was a little silly, and while there are still silly moments here, overall the story has taken a more serious turn.

A very cutesy, typical shojo plot of a girl who makes friends by sheer force of will with the difficult people around her(and is loved for it in the end).

Honestly the series is cute enough. It's okay but it doesn't feel as great as her other series. This book is good if you want to have something lighter.
Another refreshing read. I think I'm going to have to collect this series. :)
