Coelacanth

Ten years ago, there was an explosion at Hisano’s apartment building. She would have been there, but she’d been hit by a bike ridden by a boy in blood-stained clothes. He dropped a toy scale when it happened, and she’s been hanging on to it as a good-luck charm ever since. Now Hisano’s in high school. One of her teachers was murdered, and the police are investigating. A young man suddenly appears carrying the toy that scale belonged to. And perhaps… can he also see the hallucinations Hisano has always been plagued with? Everything is connected as the pattern slowly rises to the surface.

Ichibanboshi Kirari Chapter 1

I couldn’t help but feel a deja vu when I read this manga. I wonder if it’s trying to ride the success of Hirunaka although this one has a blonde sensei and dark haired Mamura (who’s not shy). We have a country girl who under certain (very forced) circumstances, is now living in the big city. She bumps into a mysterious guy who cheers her up and discovers he goes to her school–but who is he? You guessed it! He’s a teacher! LOL. Okay, “counselor”. But setting the cliches aside, I’m wondering how it will develop.
