Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Both main female leads have to struggle with understanding and loving their male counterpart. There are misunderstandings and lots of doubt and crying in Sand Chronicles due to stress over relationships, and there is a lot of crying in We Were There. The female in We Were There and a secondary male character in Sand Chronicles are trying very hard to vie for the attention of their love interest, with mixed results.
If you like the confusion of emotions from stress and relationships and the doubt that the person is good enough for the other, then I recommend this manga.
