Nina’s neighbor, Kyousuke, is starting high school while she’s still stuck in junior high. Just walking to their nearby schools together isn’t enough for her—especially since they keep running into Yuiko: a beautiful, outgoing girl in Kyousuke’s grade who also seems to harbor feelings for Nina’s next-door neighbor.

Candy’s Notes: Dear sweet baby jesbus in heaven, thank you for this manga! It’s so sweet and so freaking cute, I literally can’t. I liked the characters because they were easy to relate to and realistic. I understood why they made the choices they made and did the things they did. It’s hard talking about this manga without giving any spoilers sadly. There wasn’t a lot of sitting and pining around, and where there was, it was completely understandable. There’s actually nothing unique about this manga, or something that sets it apart from others, but it’s handled really well. What I mean by that is, things weren’t dragged on. We didn’t have to spend 30 chapters watching the main girl cry. They gave us a story and other characters to invest our interest in as the main romance unfolded. It’s a really good read and certainly deserves more attention then what it gets.
