Ayano, Tsubasa and Ichinose, Yuu are childhood friends. Since they were kids, they were inseparable. But one day they have to part each other's way because both of them are transferring homes. Clueless of where they will transfer, they were shocked when they see each other going to the same school from the place they transferred in.
ITS VERY SLOW youll definitely need patience to read this manga mainly because (SPOILERS: it took 154 chapters for them to officially date) not to mention the fact that its been on (HIATUS FOR THE ENTIRE QUARENTINE AND AS OF TODAY IT STILL IS BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHAT DAY YOU START THIS) theres the love triangle but its the subplot not that serious.
Without a doubt one of my favorite childhood friend romance stories! Ayano and Ichinose are two of the most believable childhood friends in any of these series. Their chemistry together is always fun and I could just watch these characters banter for 200 more chapters. It's got a good cast of side characters that don't fuck around too much and actually add some depth to the main characters' relationship. The art starts out very rough and takes some getting used to but does improve, and the art style ends up having a lot of charm in its looseness. It helps a lot with the series' comedy and imo this series is absolutely hilarious. There's a lot of funny moments that play into your expectations. The humor demonstrates how much the series is really aware of itself and it helps keep the main romance of the series, which can be a slog, from being TOO much of a slog. ====SPOILERS, but nothing too bad==== As for the main romance, this IS a slow series. There are multiple confessions, multiple kisses, multiple moments where characters could neatly resolve their feelings and finally get together, but don't. Ichinose has been in love with Ayano since the beginning, but seeing the way she reacts indifferently to his popularity with girls has him doubting that his feelings are reciprocated. Ayano does reciprocate those feelings but she's in denial because of some drama that happened with a previous friend and she's a tomboy that struggles with her girlier emotions. She's definitely the least mature of the two, but it helps make her an incredibly endearing character. There are momentary teases of love triangles but nothing disruptive and they exist more to teach Ayano how to recognize her own feelings of jealousy. Now it's obviously slow, and I mean slow slow. This isn't a series where the couple gets together 20 chapters in and then spends another 100 fluffing around and flirting. But their relationship is also never static and it's always building up to something. I binged the series so I couldn't imagine what it would have been like to have to wait that long to see these two develop, but I can say that it's definitely worth it, just to finally see Ayano finally claim Ichinose for herself and tell him not to fuck around with other girls after waffling around it for so long.
