Friends come in all shapes and sizes and some may even be closer than we think. This was a cute story about a shy girl finding hope from an anonymous friend and learning to love herself. The relationships in this story were the center point. They were not forced and the feelings of sadness, loneliness, excitement, and happiness were very real and could be felt by the various characters as well as the readers themselves. The characters were fun and lighthearted. I was smiling throughout the entire story. Hikage was a sweet, but shy girl. I really felt for her and even though she didn’t always show it she was very passionate especially about her photos. I liked seeing how she grew throughout the story and how she slowly, but surely made new friends that helped her along the way. I found her online friend the Black Rabbit who was a source of inspiration and encouragement for Hikage to be very interesting. I couldn’t help, but wonder who he/she was and if Hikage would ever meet them. The Black Rabbit wasn’t the only online friend she had, but was certainly the most prominent and mysterious. This was a lovely story that I believe would be enjoyed by all ages and I would highly recommend it to all those shojo manga fans out there!

The I am Here! series has stunning artwork and unique-ness, although it does seem the story is drug out at times, however it does always get you back wondering what's going to happen next. This would be a great story for young girls wanting a cute love story.

I am here explores the world of someone you might not notice every day, the quiet girl too shy to talk, too afraid to speak up. I love the story line, it is very cute and very unique. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Kitchen Princess.

Whe I first read volume one, I was like in a trancs, unable to look away. It kept me upbfor most of thr night, wanting to know what else happens. For the most part, in volume one, I had shed many tears for Hikage.
