Overview

Straight As, athlete and overall "Ms. Popularity," Yukino, is the perfect student. Or at least that"s how she appears to the outside world. But when the curtains are drawn, a lazy young egomaniac lurks who will do anything and everything to be the top student in her school. Yukino finds her resolve put to the test as after years as the Idol of her class a threat emerges in the MORE perfect Soiichiro. A good-natured, studious and athletic boy he is her equal in every way but one � that behind the act is a genuine heart driven to succeed. Yukino is desperate to regain her status anyway she can, but through embarrassing flub-ups at every turn, Soiichiro remains untouched even as they find respect for one another, and maybe, after all the dust has cleared, something more.

I love this manga! While the story is not the best I've read and might be slow at times, it is plenty to satisfy romantic comedy lovers. The art style is one of the best I've seen in a manga and unlike a lot of manga, the characters have not only depth but aren't annoyingly cute or complete jerks. The writing is good enough to be a full novel and the story, whilst having a cliché plot, puts an interesting twist on it. This is definitely recommended.

Kare Kano, His and Her Circumstances is the best! I loved it and now I'm hooked. It is on my 'Favorite Mangas' list. Basically, the story is about a girl who is obsessed with being perfect, and a guy who wants to be perfect to prove that he isn't like his birth parents. At first they are simply acquaintences, and they have a slightly up and down relationship, but things begin to fall into place... or do they? Anyway, this manga is the best because it's concept of 'the mask' which is similar to the one in Evangelon, apparently (did I spell that correctly?). It is one shoujo that anyone can enjoy!

I have always been an anime fan but I am new to manga. Kare Kano's drawings may get a bit (and I mean tinsy bitsy bit) confusing but you'll get used to it right away. No complaints in the story. If you are looking for some fast paced, action packed, super heroic manga, then Kare Kano is NOT for you. BUT, if you love a story with GROWTH, LAUGH OUT LOUD HUMOR, AND DEFINITELY LOTS OF LOVE, then Kare Kano is RIGHT for you! I finished 6 Volumes in one day and I did not know that it would finish that fast so I ordered the last 17 volumes right away. For those hopeFUL romantics out there or if you want a good break from ninjas and alchemists, Kare Kano is for you!

This is not a good manga to read if your`e new to manga because it gets a bit confusing later on.This is a fun series though and I love the expressive art style. It is excellent to read during things like long car drives or waiting at an office.You will also find yourself buying the next volume. I reccomend this book to people who enjoy books about interesting(weird)relationships.

When I bought the first Kare Kano book I was so angry because I read the whole thing in less than 30 minutes, and when I went back to buy the second volume, the store was closed. Kare Kano is a great quick-read because it'll cheer you up if you're feeling bad, or it will keep you entertained and running back to the book store(even if its closed)to purchase the next three. I highly reccomend Kare Kano to people who are trying to find themselves or are in need of some relationship comfort.

This story is great. Its not a typical love story and is very funny. By the time you read the first 3 or 4 books you may get bored, but the story gets way more interesting later on. Another good thing about this series is that it doesn't just circle around the main couple, but a few others as well. Masami Tsuda also draws really well and is great at showing different emotions in every character. I've never read anything like Kare Kano before. It's unique and fun. I recommend to not only girls but also guys that are interested in love stories or that just like funny manga. If you're an anime lover than you have to read Kare Kano!

This is my first ever manga and i think I'm in love with it. It's just such a great book. I started reading it as soon as i left the bookstore and I couldn't put it down. Even if you don't usually read manga, you'll love this book... maybe not guys so much as girls.. I can't wait to get the rest of the series.

I read the first 4 books of Kare Kano, and I thought that after awhile, I pretty much got bored w/ the story b/c there were no surprises (predictable)...but it's not that bad of a romance manga. There are better romance mangas than this.

Two model students fake their whole super smart life. Oh! And by the4 way, there is (or was anyway) a lot more going on in Soichiro's life than straight A's and pretty hair!!!!!

Originally titled as 'Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou', or 'His and Her Circumstances', but commonly called just 'Kare Kano'. This ia a Romance Comedy that revolves around two high school students that discover a secret about one another which leads them through struggles of inner revelations and a budding relationship. Enjoyable no matter your age, it is filled with laughter and artistic representation of life's many trials, and is set apart from many in it's feild by it's unusual flaws and quirks in it's main characters that give a humorous and realistic light to the human mentality. Kare Kano is being published in America by 'TokyoPop', and the 26 episode TV series originally produced in Japan by 'Studio Gainax', is being released by 'The Right Stuff' as 'His and Her Circumstances'. If your looking for a Love Comedy thats original and far away from stereo-types and cliche's but not out in let feild, this should keep you happy. (note: title taken from TokyoPop website product description page)-I agree-
