Hirunaka no Ryuusei
"Hirunaka no Ryuusei" (ひるなかの流星) also known as "Daytime Shooting Star" is a cute shoujo manga by Yamamori Mika (山森三香)

The story is about Yosano Suzume, a 15 year old girl from the countryside, who's always skipping class and has her head in the clouds. Albeit absent-minded, she's a cheerful active girl and everyday life is pleasant and peaceful. She holds onto a childhood memory of a brilliant star lighting up the sky during the day that she still wonders .. was it just a dream?

One day when she goes home, her father tells her that he and her mother are going to move overseas for his work and she is being sent to Tokyo to live with her uncle. Follow Suzume as she makes friends, adjusts to living in the city and all the characters that she meets!

Initial thoughts:
For whatever reason I've recently been in the mood to read light-hearted slice-of-life stories, and this one hits the nail on the head. Suzume is a character you can't help but love, strong-willed but not unrealistically so for a 15-year old girl, she's not just a frail princess. The guys we are initially introduced to have their own unique personality traits.. as well as being very pretty.. :heh:

Oh ho? This looks interesting - I enjoy the same genre of light hearted slice of life material. Will give this one a looksee. Seems Vol 01 is available. :)

Thanks for the heads up!

Let me know what you think! I just like sharing when I find series that are particularly creative, endearing or cute! I must admit I also find the art style so adorable! :love:

Outlook is positive

This is the best thing since sliced bread. Oh my god, I have discovered a shojo gem.

Is anybody actually keeping up with this? :heh:

About latest chapter: It feels so good when the couple you were rooting for get together, but the pessimist in me says the author won't be throwing any curveballs at us and the main girl will break up with him to be with her sensei :(
