Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
You might like this manga because both of the main characters are at first misunderstood or shy and are separated from the rest of their class. Though both of them are used to this loneliness deep down inside they still long to be a part of the warm class. They both are given a chance far beyond their dreams with the help of the guy who is the center of the class and close friends they encounter through troubles along the way.
Both of these stories deal with a shy girl having a crush on a popular boy. They also deal with bullying from those ever so cruel teenage girls, at some point. These stories feel similar, but they have key differences.
When a shy girl is finally able to break out of her shell with the help of a cute boy then true friendship is finally reveled. The love and hop the characters express throughout each manga entertained with relationships of everyone envolved.
You might like both of those manga since they have a pretty similar storyline: a shy girl without friends and a boy who is fancied by many girls meet and fall in love with eachother. (In both manga, there also is a best friend of the boy who also may like the girl.) Kotori gets accepted more and more by her classmates since she is dating Yukito and it's the same with Hikage and Hinata.
both Bokutachi Wa Shitte Shimatta and koko ni iru yo! is aboud a shy girl and a "popular" boy who falls inlove. Both of them has a WONDERFUL storyline and if u love one of then u will definitly love the other!
When Najika was a little girl, her parents died, and she nearly did as well until a boy saved her and gave her a flan so that she'd stop crying. Since then Najika has wanted to once more meet her ‘Flan Prince,' though all she has to go on is the silver spoon he left behind. Now a young lady, Najika is on her way to Tokyo to study at Seika Academy, the origin of the spoon and a prestigious cooking school. While there she'll hone her culinary skills, help transform a school eatery into something special and make new friends such as the brothers Daichi and Sora - but will she ever find her prince?
Kitchen Princess and Koko ni Iru yo! both involve a girl who isn't exactly popular, who likes a popular boy. The main three characters from each story remind me of each other, and the two main male characters in each story kind of resemble the pair from the other story. And that's not all. Both stories deal with that sinister mean girl at school trying to make the heroine's life miserable.
These have both got female protagonists who have someone they like for one reason or another. They both feature a hint of bullying towards the main character and both have a really detailed story. So I personally think if you liked one of these then you should like the other!
Yukina isn't just a high school student, she's also secretly a popular novel writer. Due to her looks and personality, the girl doesn't have much of a social or love life and is avoided by everyone except her cousin Akira. So when the fans of her novels ask for Yukina to incorporate more love aspects into her stories, she decides to take immediate action – she'll force an unsuspecting student into a fake relationship with her to get more experience for her craft! The 'lucky' man is Kitami, a popular student who keeps a journal of all of the women he's convinced to confess to him. Holding the book above his head as blackmail, Yukina begins her experiments with Kitami – but others, such as Akira and an old friend of Kitami's will stand in her way...
Watashi ni xx Shinasai! and Koko ni Iru Yo! are both by the same mangaka, Ema Tooyama. Although their storylines aren't too similar, they both have a big romance factor, and love triangles. Both series ensure laughs and serious MOE~If you liked one, and especially if you loved the art, it will be impossible not to love the other! Both series HIGHLY recommended.
Although both series are by the same mangaka, they have more similarities than that. Both female protagonists have blogs that they love, only diffenence is that Yukina's (from Watashi) blog is all cell phone stories she wrote and the main girl from koko ni iru yo has a blog about everyday life and about how she doesnt have any friends. Both female protagonists are also inexpierienced in love.
After recovering from an accident, Hiyori has returned to school for the first time, and she's terrified! For Hiyori is painfully shy, and the idea of making friends, let alone introducing herself to the class, is impossible to bear. But regardless of her embarrassment, Hiyori's small stature makes her an instant hit with her peers, including the popular and attractive Yuushin. Confident or not, Hiyori's school – and love - life is just beginning...
Both are cute shoujo manga about a shy girl trying to make friends.. And also happens to take romantic interest in the most popular boy in the class! I Am Here takes a more dramatic direction than Hiyokoi, and Hiyokoi is longer and is more in depth with Hiyori's relationships with the whole class, but they are very complimentary works and if you liked the adorable main character in one, well look no further!
