High School Debut By Kazune Kawahara
It’s a story of a middle school softball star Haruna, who decides to get something else when she enters high school- a boyfriend. The only problem of being in sports before was her ignorance towards fashion or make-up. Being unknown to what’s romance, the goal seems difficult.
Though, rather than being discouraged, she asks for help from the most popular guy in her school. It comes as a surprise to everyone when he agrees to help her but with one condition- she must avoid falling in love with him. It sounds as stereotypical as it could, but as the story goes along, you fall in love with characters, especially Haruna who is sincere and straightforward.

But finally, the two forget their differences and decide to help each other in winning their love interests. However, things don’t go according to the plan as one of the best manga in English contains mysteries on every door.
