Koharu No Hibi
Author: Ooshiro Youkou
Artist: Ooshiro Youkou
Genres: Drama, Psychological, Romance, School Life, Seinen
Status: Complete, Consiting of 4 Volumes (24 Chapters)

Synopsis: On his way to school, Torii Akira helps a girl who was about to fall down. From that moment he keeps running into that girl, and she seems very happy to see Akira. Could this be the reason Akira can't help but smile all day?

Before long, however, Akira begins to notice the true face of that girl. Her obsession growing every day, Koharu's eccentricity causes her to take anything involving Akira to the extreme, disregarding the concerns and well-being of others as she seeks her senpai's affection. (Source:Batoto)

For some reason, someone had recommended me this manga, imagine yourself that you had girlfriend that truly loves you with all her heart. Well can this love be a nuisance or a pleasant feeling to the main character? Well here it goes….

My Review:
It all started in a train station where Akira helped Koharu at the train station, as days goes by, Koharu suddenly get infatuated by him, stalking Akira whereever he goes. Of course she confessed to him directly without any further interruptions.

Obviously Koharu is a Yandere, she can do anything to win Akira’s heart, but technically speaking this is almost a one- sided relationship. At least for Akira, he may soon realized that Koharu’s really obssessed by him…

Lucky or Unlucky???

The main conflict in this story was how will Akira manage himself in his new relationship, to be specific can he really avoid Koharu everyday of his life? Since Koharu herself is overly attached to him, she didn’t even realized that Akira needs somehow personal space, plus his privacy was gradually decreasing.

From the readers’ point of view, they might hate Koharu the most because of her obsession to Akira. But for others they might hate Akira, because he wouldn’t ask what Koharu really wants to him. Comparing to her yandere factor to the other characters, she was just extremely annoying but not to an extent that she will became psychotic.

Shit just gor real

Well shit just got real… For some reason Koharu wanted to take what Akira’s first belongings even his memories. She might have reached beyond a stalking level due to her insanity. If she goes beyond to that, definitely she’ll become a complete psychopath. For Akira, he has no choice but to love her unconditionally, because if he will ever cheat on her, basically consequences will occur.

The cons in this series was some readers won’t get used to Koharu’s character, they might imagine that what if their girlfriend ot partner was like Koharu, unless you if you wanted yourself get stalked. Akira’s character doesn’t have too much guts if he wanted to have personal space.

Rating:
Graphics/Art: 8/10
Story: 8/10
Characters: 7.5/10
Lifespan: 7/10
Overall: 7.63/10

Evaluation:
Koharu No Hibi is only just a plain average manga if you are into romance. But if you are clearly a yandere fan, then this manga is worth of a read. For some reason, it only focuses the romantic development of Koharu and Akira. I didn’t found this manga to be enjoyable, because I’m not much into yandere. This manga proves that in a relationship, it should be two-sided, and somehow a person should have at least their own personal space.

Things that I learned in this manga: I should be careful in handling relationships to women. Otherwise, your reputation or your life will be at stake.

I started this but had to drop it. To many flash backs. Trust me being stalked is no fun.

Great review! and a series I had stopped reading originally because like Digritz said the flashbacks were coming up on regular basis. But since the series has ended and you gave it such commendable scoring might as well pick it up again from start to end.

Agree with you when I originally read a few chapters dropped it because of the flashbacks.
Care to go in more detail about this stalking part?

Alls I'm say'in is when a psycho first latches on you will never recognize them as a psycho. By the time you figure it out..........."What do you mean coincidence this bar is 50 miles from home" "Hey what the hell is that full length nude poster of me doing in you shower. I'm like 4. WHAT you got it from my mom! What the hell?" ................it's way toooooo late.

Your only option is to turn it right around and stalk them back. Granted by the end you will have lost all self respect but who cares cause you'll be free................


There are some SCARY girls out there.
