Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu

For fans who haven’t read the Manga, the series is about how a “pure-hearted” girl is trained into an aggressive lover by her handsome male classmate. In terms of rating, I won’t recommend it for anyone who is under 17. The struggling love story is quite suitable for live action adaptation and if the movie were made in Korea, it could be totally a disaster (either good or bad). Oh, don’t get me wrong, I personally read the first half of the series and found that I cannot keep on reading anymore. Well, don’t like my summary, check out the real summary below:

The manga follows Tsubaki Hibino, a girl who is indifferent to both romance and fashion, even though she loves giving other people adorable hairstyles. On the first day of high school, she happened to sit next to Kyōta, a mean-spirited boy who teases her. In retaliation, she spontaneously pulls out scissors and cuts off his long tresses of hair. Thus begins the long love-hate relationship between Tsubaki and Kyōta. (via ANN)
