The Story

Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi
Hanabi Marui

Meet Hanabi Marui, our heroine who hates boys more than anything in the world!! When she has to decide which high school to apply to, she does it without giving it any hesitation – it’s going to be an all-girls school! However, life’s not always easy. Due to her sudden fever she missed her entrance exam. Thus, her adventure is about to start.

As you can see this manga has a unique story and not as lame as other manga which talks about love.

The characters

Usually, I tell you guys about the main characters and leave you to discover the rest; But this time is different. After all, all of the characters in Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi can be considered as a main.

The characters are separated into 2 groups, the Boys’ and the Girls.’

The etiquette states that ladies first so let’s start with the Girls’ group.

Things I like about Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi

So far, I find the story of Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi  very unique. Yet at the same time, this manga made us follow the lives of a group of high school students in an arranged way!!! To add, it offers a variety in characters and a good dose of their every day life. This does not make you bored nor lost while reading. In fact, it makes you excited to follow them to know what is going to happen next. With these, I’m really glad that this manga has been completed! 😍

Things that could probably have been improved

To be honest, the drawing style at the beginning of this manga wasn’t that attractive. I felt that they were drawn in a hurry and was not polished. Thankfully, the drawing style became better after the first volume was done.

To conclude…

🤗 I can assure you: You are gonna enjoy it guys. I really wish there would be a 2nd season of this manga!!! 😭
