I've been looking for some heartwarming, sweet, loving tales of romance in the Managa world that isn't so...shoujo. I wanted something a little more real, and my searches lead me to Kiss/Hug. The storyline is beautiful, the moral of the story is touching, and the artwork is breathtaking. It spins a tale of true love-at-first-site in a both quirky and interesting way. At every turn your wondering what will happen to these two lovers who are truly what shakespeare calls 'Starcrossed.' I couldn't stop reading it until it was finished, rooting the two idiot lovers along, and when I hit the final page I had an oddly warm feeling.
