Koko Debut by Kazune Kawahara

Rating :★★★★★

When Haruna Nagashima was in junior high her life consisted of playing softball and reading comics. But now that she’s going to high school, Haruna decides to put all of her energy towards getting a boyfriend and having the high school romance of a lifetime. To help in her quest, she enlists cute upperclassman Yoh Komiyama to coach her as she eschews her jock tendencies and turns herself into the kind of girl who can catch a guy. Yoh agrees, with one catch: Haruna had better not fall for him!

 

 

The Review

I usually find some of the high school shojo manga annoying but I surprisingly enjoyed this one. I mostly think it was Haruna-san that made it fun.
Haruna in the past played softball and was more of a tomboy but now in high school she is determined to be more girly, have a boyfriend and some romance, you know! the usual. But everything she is trying is just not working out until she stumbles in front of Yoh who she thinks is so cool and then she does the unthinkable and asks him to be her coach. Then starts the fun of this really sweet story.

What did I think? I really loved this story. I enjoyed the pace of the story, although there were bits in the story that I didn’t think was needed. Haruna was just fun to read, her innocence was just so cute but also a bit annoying. I didn’t really like Yoh’s sister she was a bit too self-centered then again a lot of people I know are like that. I didn’t like that she (Yoh’s sister) took advantage of her innocence in some situations, but I also like that Haruna never took any of it to heart. I like watching how Haruna grows through the story and also how the different relationships and romance blossoms throughout the story.
It was a fun and entertaining story and compared to some other Shoujo this one was relatively short and sweet.
