Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer ROrn
Like most teenage girls, Chino only wants one thing: to fall in love. But when she finally does, it's nothing like she expected. She ends up falling head over heals for Hyo, a jungle-raised boy who was found by her father on an exploration. Hyo is completely uncivilized and has absolutely no idea of how to behave. Nonetheless, when Hyo starts living with Chino's family and attending the same school, sparks begin to fly.
A good manga has beautiful artwork and a more substantial storyline to match it. A great manga has those two things, plus the ability to completely hold the reader's attention. This manga is not good - it's great. The artwork is beautiful, but clear, so it is easy to see what is going on in each illustration. The storyline actually has depth and is not just an after-thought added to the pictures. Everything about this manga works together and creates an overall great reading experience. And since it is a three volume set, there is more of the story in one book, which is something that I look for. I would recommend this manga if you've enjoyed mangas by Matsuri Hino or Bisco Hatori.
