Amagami - Sincerly Yours

Genre: Comedy Romance School Life Shounen
Author/Artist: SAKURA Kotetsu

Based on the visual novel by Enterbrain with the same name.

Something that might be hard to understand, since the game is a dating game in every playthrough one can choose to court a different girl; and that will involve different events and experiences thorough the game. The fact that there is more than one manga in this reflects on that, as we have the same character experiencing different events and getting close to different girls.

Well, this Amagami is the same as the other Amagami manga and anime, we see a guy, our hero, Tachibana falling in love with one of the main heroines from the original game. I'm not quite sure, but it seems like it may be taking a slightly different approach, by having focus on more than one girl at a time. The 1st chap was kinda hectic, trying to introduce all of the chars from the game, but chap 2 onwards seems to primarily focus on Ayatsuji. Although it seems they've added the Haruka backstory so far, so I don't know whether or not it will become more harem-oriented or not. Amagami's other iterations are pretty good, both of the manga(LGO and PD) are better than this simply because they are more focused, but I like this one as well since it looks like it could touch a little bit of everyone's story(or backstory). I tend to think it more fun for other characters to get involved just to see how they interact with one another, so I hope the mangaka can do a good job expressing that =03(if it IS going to go the harem route, and didn't use Haruka as someone for Ayatsuji to get angry at Tachi for).

Spoiler for chp 5:
