Hana started going out with Tokumoto-kun, who's popular with both the class and the girls. She's being played around with by the guy's pace. Hana falls in love more and more with his kindness and his sense of humor. But, then she finds out about his ex-girlfriend, who is a teacher…!

Also includes two other stories:

Cm na Futari
This is a love story between childhood friends.
They’ve always been together so it’s hard to go from childhood friends to lovers, right? Michika thinks that people who try to trick her are bastards, but Yuki saved her. She thought he was so cool that she fell in love.

My Life My Melody
Aoi met Kei, the street guitarist after running away from home one day. Aoi’s life is not at all perfect as her family kept ignoring and not realizing her existence. Can Kei help Aoi to go through with her life?

My Thoughts on the Manga
This story made me laugh and cry and I really enjoyed every moment of it. Even the two side chapters were great in their own way.
I do wish for it to be longer but I'm fine with it being short because it just so good. If your looking for a great one shot story of romance that will make you laugh and cry at the same time this is for you.

Hana really is a great girl but to fall for someone who still has feelings for another person must be really tough for her. She's sweet but I can see how painful it was for her to be with Rintarou when she found out his feelings for their Sensei (teacher). Though she wanted what was best for Rintarou even if she was hurt in the end.

Though he has feelings for Sensei, when he met Hana everything changed. She ran into him when he was crying and started to cry herself because she saw how sad he was. He slowly began to change his feelings bu couldn't figure it out till the end when Hana pushed him to go to Sensei. He's a great guy and I'm glad everything turned out fine in the end. 

The romance was slow because they had to figure out how to be togehter when it seemed Rintarou still had feelings for their sensei. In the end he proved to her that his feelings for Hana was strong and he wanted to be with her not sensei.


Very cute drawing style I've read a few of this authors manga's and all of them have pretty much the same style. It's both cute and interesting with the way she draws. You can see a lot of emotion in the characters expressions that they show and a lot of work goes into the background and detail in the face and body. I really do love this authors works.
