This is a review of volume 1 and 2. I read them in an omnibus which isn't listed on Goodreads. The page numbers match up so I'm going with it!
From the mangka who brought us Fruits Basket, we have a new series set in a small town in the countryside, close to the sea. Sakuya, a high school girl lives with her cousin, Kanade, who is acting as her guardian. She lives a simple life and when times are painful or sad she star gazes with her two friends, Yuuri (a boy crush in her) and Hijiri (a strong willed girl), and is filled with the beauty of the sky. Then one day a boy, Chihiro, comes to her house and poses as her boyfriend...
I picked this up as a lark in the library, feeling the art style was familiar but I couldn't place it until I got on Goodreads! I quite enjoy the unique style of Fruits Basket and it compliments this story as well. The characters do get a little confusing to keep straight but its a very down to earth style that suits the humanity in the story. I did eventually get everyone down and it became easier to read.
There is this huge discrepancy between how Chihiro acted when he first met with Sakuya at her cousins and how he acted when they meet later. Its the mystery of this 180 degree change that intrigues you to keep reading. It's that simple of a plot... but it was quite compelling even though it was obvious what would happen next!
Even to Chihiro, he had to know he would end up at her school... so why did he do that initial meeting?! Then there are times he acts at odds with his professed hatred of Sakuya! There is nothing special about Sakuya but she's a good girl who her friends love. She is living with her cousin, who isn't much older than her and is quite temperamental (in a totally fun way, I really got a kick out of him!) I liked her two friends too... but why the extreme feelings about her?!
This is a rather quiet story. There is the mystery at its core but Sakuya is the real mystery to me... I'll need to keep reading if I want to understand. I did enjoy this and the omnibus made the story fly by!!

Read information about the authorNatsuki Takaya (高屋 奈月 Takaya Natsuki, real name Naka Hatake) is the penname of a Japanese manga artist best-known for creating the series Fruits Basket. She was born on July 7, 1973; (Tanabata). Takaya is left-handed and once revealed that she wanted to be a mangaka since first grade, when her sister started drawing.
She was born in Shizuoka, Japan, but was raised in Tokyo, where she made her debut in 1992. She enjoys video games such as the Final Fantasy series or Sakura Wars, or working on her different manga series, such as Fruits Basket, which is the second best-selling shōjo manga ever in Japan, and the top selling shōjo manga in North America. Fruits Basket has also been adapted into a twenty-six-episode anime series.
In 2001, Takaya received a Kodansha Manga Award for shōjo manga for Fruits Basket.
According to Takaya (in a sidebar of a Fruits Basket manga volume), she enjoys drawing girls (girly ones) more than she does boys. Takaya also enjoys electronics and music, but dislikes talking about herself. Also revealed in a sidebar of Fruits Basket, Takaya broke her drawing arm (left) after Fruits Basket volume six was published. She had to go into surgery, and as a result, had put Fruits Basket on a brief hiatus. Takaya made a full recovery, but complains that her handwriting had gotten uglier, due to the surgery. During her hospital stay, she gained an interest in baseball.
