Synopsis: Mei Tachibana has spent her 16 years without making either a boyfriend or friends. One day, she injures the most popular boy in school, Yamato Kurosawa, because of a misunderstanding but for some reason it seems that he takes a liking to her and one-sidedly claims that they’re friends. Furthermore, he not only protects Mei from a stalker, he does it with a kiss…?!! [Karma Falls Scanlations]
Sigh. I think this manga really needs more love. I just found out recently that an anime of this aired late 2012 and I was wondering if that reflected popularity at all. But I don't see anyone else reading this here...
I watched the anime and got to relive the story and I was again reminded why I really liked this one and how I feel it's sort of different from all other shoujo titles of its kind.
btw, it seems the scanlations have since picked up so you really might wanna give this a go. ^^
