@ironbomb: Nishino is there (Nao-chan ), but with black hair.
They look similar but not as similar as the Aya - Yamamoto lol. Also...I think her story is next ^^

Character design wise, Ayumi == Nishino, you just need to trim Ayumi's hair shorter and voila here you're.

Fran~, it's true that Yamamoto == Aya, again character design wise.
Also i would add that Yamamoto also resembles the grown up version of Misuzu in the final chapter of the manga. Still nothing beats the AyaMoto resemblance while comparing the two mangas.

You change Rika's facial expression and design a bit, you would get Rika == Yui.

Lastly, if you change the hair color, Enomoto sisters == Satsuki.

This is something that you couldn't avoid, i guess. Moreover, mangakas often use similar character designs to appease to fans' expectations at the request of their editors perhaps. Still, we can still find differences in both Kawashita's works. The ultimate prize of uncanny resemblance in character designs of a same mangaka used in different mangas would, in my opinion, always go to Adachi Misturu. Adachi sensei just recycles his characters everytime he starts a new work.

Im not saying that its bad ^^, and i totally agree with you about the use of similar character designs in a lot of very recognized mangakas... besides Adachi you can see similar designs in Sadamoto's, OG's, Ai Yazawa's work, and the list is way too long ^^

About the characters of HL: i think Nao chan also resembles Misuzu and Koyoi's attitude reminds
me Satsuki, Yuu is like Chinami and Misao looks like Komiyama... ^^

Design wise.. Ayumi doesnt look similar to Nishino at all...instead looks REALLY similar to Chinami.

There is no debating that Yamamoto and Aya are exact replicas lol. I dont think her personality really resembles the mature Misuzu, more like the mature Aya herself. Also Rika looking like Yui..I never thought about that..but now that you mention it, they do resemble each other a bit.

Totally agreed that the two sisters look similar to Satsuki...Kei more than Yuu...Never read anything by Adachi.. or at least I dont think I have but yea mangakas often reuse characters that where popular... Here's the list of characters I found that look similar...


Arihara Ayumi = Chinami
Bessho Koyoi = Kozue
Zaizu Mamoru = Manaka
Zaizu Misao = Komiyama
Arihara Yuuji = Amachi
Yamamoto Misaki = Aya
Bessho Yoshihiko = Sotomura
Enomoto Kei = Satsuki
Dobashi Rika = Yui

Actually i think all the characters are shadows of one another, design wise. This is very obvious in many mangakas' works.

ironbomb, Mamoru sure looks like Manaka, but this time, it seems that his fate might be reversed.

Anyway for Chapter 9, it's about Meguru and Takei-senpai (武居). Takei is probably the clown of this series, nevertheless the relationship between Meguru and him looks interesting. The story branches out too much, i'm wondering how Kawashita is going to develop it. Hopefully, all's well ends well.

Lastly, mikoo, could you please consider updating your chart? Thanks.

Meguru is the class representative of Misaki's class. She's friend with both Misaki and Yuu. Takei is a new guy introduced in this chapter. If you don't mind being spoiled, here you are.


Meguru Watarase

How about Yamamoto x Enomoto?

In that case, we would have the Moto pairing!

Assuming your referring to the older 1 ^^, that isnt a bad idea...But I doubt it would sway into that direction xD.
