I read this because I am exploring some romance shoujo manga (primarily for girls) for a class and because my friend Lauren begins her review this way:

“Awwwww, this was perfection!! Ichigo Takano does it again! I LOVED THIS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!”

and I have agreed with Lauren’s views most of the time, so of course I read the first volume. Wouldn’t you, based on that review!!? I also really like the author’s Orange series, so I was twice encouraged. I haven’t yet fallen for this one y

- this was a super cute manga, its fun and an enjoyable read
- I'm looking forward to seeing how the friendships and relationships grow
- So far I like the characters, though the main character is pretty cliche at times
- The art is super nice and I'm looking forward to seeing where this series go

Ahh! I'm so happy to be reading more from Ichigo Takano! Orange is probably one of my favourite manga of all time! When Jesse told me about this series, I knew I had to pick it up! i really didn't even know it existed!!! It was so cute and, of course, very beautiful to look at and read! I can't wait to pick up all of the other available volumes and continue reading!

This was such a cute first volume of this series. I’ve been hearing a lot about it and how much people have been adoring it. I just knew that I had to take the chance and read it and I’m glad that I did. It was super cute and I loved the way that all the boys looked out for Shimana. I hope that she gains the confidence that she’s looking for in the next few volumes.

it's honestly pretty rare for me to enjoy the beginning of a shojo manga - it's why that, in the past, I never usually continued them. I find beginnings of shojos a little cringey, a little too perfect and not usually my cup of tea. BUT I will be continuing this one!

While yeah, the plot of this is a little convenient, and its a bit instalovey and everything is a bit too perfect, I really liked the characters, the art style, and I'm interested to

Nowhere near the level of Orange when it comes to storytelling or art. Still, A charming and easy read. The main character is a bit bratty but I like the characters and roommates overall. Fun sense of humor.

Shimana is quite unlikable in this first volume and the character designs are a bit off for me but as I loved the author's other work Orange I will stick with this.
Edit: After a couple of volumes this manga gets really really good and Shimana becomes much more likable.

The author is so awkward in getting the premise set up, that it almost derails the book. I think the runaway girl moving into a house with three guys was supposed to be whimsical, but it came across as sloppy and/or downright loony. But once the situation portion of this romantic comedy had been established, I started to become involved in the relationships between the characters and found myself looking forward to getting more volumes from the library.

Incredibly cute, solid start. I'm getting some major Fruits Basket vibes (my favorite manga *ever*) and I'm excited to see this continue on the upward trend. The characters are likable, the situations (while a bit cliched) are exciting, and I like all of the different directions this story might go! I'm glad the author takes the time to flesh out her secondary characters, as well. Off to a good start :) ...more

Welcome Back!

I recently decided to branch out in my manga reading, I have read manga for a while now (if you look back on my previous posts I talk about how I read manga a lot last year but never reviewed any on my channel). This year I decided to pick up a few new series based on some trusted bookish friends recommendations, booktuber recommendations, and just some that have inspired some of my favorite animes. This one I saw a lot from a lot of different people and then I thought the covers we

I wanted to explore some more manga and this sounded like an interesting and cute read. I didn't realise it was by the same author who wrote Orange - a manga series I LOVED. I had high expectations because of this, but it really didn't live up to the hype.

I couldn't believe this was written by the same author. The story line felt rushed and the characters were not fleshed out enough in my opinion.

It was obvious that the author was trying to make the plot whimsical but it really did not

Feeling like she's unwanted and in the way after the birth of her new baby step-brother, Shimana decides to run away. She decides to skip school and hide out at a nearby park where she meets Taiga who sees the signs of a runaway and offers her a place to stay if she agrees to three conditions. She has tell him why she ran away, get the house key from one of the other roommates and have a dream for her future.

I really wanted to love this because I loved the first part of Orange. But I really struggled to buy into the premise of this book. Like you run away from home (bc you're a spoiled brat and don't understand ppl) and you meet a guy LITERALLY sleeping in the park who says you can live with him if you "fall in love" and "find a dream". You think to yourself "This is an awesome idea!!" Um no... Creepers be creeping... ...more

I loved this first volume! I thought it was really cute and fun! I also love the characters and the plot.

It made me laugh a lot; I think Zen might be my favourite of the three boys, but yeah, I really liked it!

The pacing was a little slow for me at the beginning, but it picks up in the middle!

I can’t wait to continue with the series and see how the relationships progress

4 stars.


This is a cute and fluffy intro to the story. We meet our main cast, and I really like them all. Sure, Shimana is kinda childish, but aside from that I have zero complaints^^

I'll definitely be reading the next volumes, and probably the entire series.

This series LOOKS cliché with the girl running away from home and living with a bunch of guys thing BUT from these 4 chapters alone I can also sense how this series CAN have a lot of potential if it's to be written well. For now I shall try reading the next volume first and take it from there :) ...more

This was cute but over all the dynamic between characters reminded me way too much of Fruits Basket minus the zodiac.

This was super cute and super sweet and just a lot of greatness. I love the art, I love the characters, I just thought it was so wholesome!

Can’t wait to get the next volume!

I don't usually go for mangas like Dreamin' Sun, but I was very surprised by how much I came to enjoy this first volume in the series.

So much cuteness, and funny little moments, and so ridiculous the situations that it somehow just works. I mean yeah, how right? A girl that helps a drunk on the street and gets invited back to his place to become a roommate with himself and two other guys. What could go wrong?

But, I really see the beauty in that. In the innocence of a book like this one, where t
Eh, the characters and their interactions are cute, but the premise of this is a little too contrived and far fetched for me to suspend my disbelief (what kind of parent lets their teenage kid live with a 20-something dude!? and where are Zen and Asahi's parents? I'm assuming it'll come up in future volumes, but still weird).

I'll save judgement for future volumes, but the setup in this one feels pretty obvious and derivative as well. Zen and Asahi are obviously going to be two points of a love
