Product Description from

Hanabi Oozora's always acted like a boy, but she's never actually wanted to date one, until she meets Yasuaki Garaku. Hanabi wants to discover the origin of hunky Student Council V.P. Yasuaki's dislike of women, but lately, he has been anything but forthcoming. Her solution - the ancient art of hypnosis! Through her prestigious powers of prestidigitation (and with the help of a five-yen coin), Hanabi successfully lulls Yasuaki into a deep slumber, but will this voyage into his murky, male subconscious yield proof-positive that Yasuaki's aversion is unfounded, or further drive a wedge between the dashing V.P. and all of womankind?

Product Description from

Just when Hanabi thinks that she and the dreamy Yasuaki have reached the pinnacle of romantic bliss, the cruel hand of fate throws her a wicked curveball - her childhood friend Takeru (now a marvelous specimen of teenage studliness) is back in town and wants to reminisce about the good old days. Takeru's designs on Hanabi seem more than friendly, especially when he asks her to choose between Yasuaki and himself. Who'll get kissed? Who'll get punched? Who'll get kissed and punched?! Later, Hanabi finds herself in trouble with the school administration (for, like, the gazillionth time), and now must ace her finals and become the best student in her class...or else face the horrifically hair-raising consequences!

Product Description from

What happens when an all-girls' high school reigning tomboy finds out her school is about to be filled with boys!?
Hanabi Oozora is a rambunctious 16-year-old tomboy who comes to the rescue of her less assertive friends-sometimes in exchange for food. So what does she do when, all of a sudden, her all-girls' school is about to be integrated with an all-boys' school?!
She meets and falls in love-naturally-with one of the three most popular and handsome boys in the Student Council, Yasuaki Garaku! Unfortunately, Yasuaki doesn't care for girls...and when the girls' Student Council clashes head-on with the boys' Student Council, Hanabi steps in to become a member-hoping she'll change Yasuaki's mind!

My Review:

Hanabi is a girl who is in love with Yasuki Garaku, but poeple around them are coming between their love. One is her childhood friend Takeru Sonon the second is her father who comes in to town for a visit. Hanabi's character gradually develops throughout the rest of the story we learn about her childhood when she went from a crybaby to a strong and fierce teenager who will not take crap from anyone.

This is the ending books of the series and I loved it. The books in the series were page turners and I could not wait to see what happened in the end. The characters were well-developed and interesting. The storyline was fast-paced and never dull. This series had gotten me to love manga and I feel it is a great introduction to this wonderful genre.

I would recommend this for a older teenager who is a newcomer or already a fanatic because it is relatively short series.

I rate this 4.5/5
