Summary


I’m Anna. I’m 14 years old and I’ve just entered the ninth grade. Sou and Hinata, who live in the same apartment complex as me, are my childhood friends and we’re all the same age. I thought that from now on we’d become even closer friends, but then my senior came! I don't know what to do! 

My Thoughts


Review covers 40 chapters 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today I have a very sweet story to share with you. Are you ready? I hope you are. It was my first time reading Nana Haruta’s work and well I liked it. I can’t say I was impressed with it, but it’s one great story to read to raise your spirits. The plot is not all that unique, but it still has a lot of twists and turns that make your heart race at one point and laugh a lot at the other.

Okay, back to the story. Meet our characters: Anna, Hinata and Sou Childhood friends that make an amazing love triangle. How it goes? Sou loves Anna, while Anna loves Hinata, and who does Hinata Love? Well, I’m quite sorry to spoil all the fun, but here it is: Hinata loves Anna. There were many things that happened so Anna and Hinata confessed their feelings. The very first one was Sou, and he makes an amazing character. Well, all of them make amazing characters, even though the story doesn’t progress as fast as I would have loved, it’s still great. The friendship between those three is described really greatly. And how just ne confession could shatter it is really real.

I liked this manga, even though it’s not finished yet, for the whole school life and friendship that it shows. It’s a big roller coaster of feelings and school life that can’t make you stop reading. I do not think I’ll be reviewing this manga again, as I didn’t really love it to that extent, but it was an amazing distraction from the whole studying for my exams. But I do think that it’s an amazing story. And I really want to know how it all will end.

I hope you’ll find some time to read this story. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews and promos here, on Katie’s Corner. Maybe you’ll find your next favourite read! Happy reading!

XOXO
