Soon afterward he enters college, and his friend from high school convinces him to join the female dominated travel and hot springs club. Amazingly, the girl he saw naked, Ruka, is also a member of the club! Now he must interact with his club more or less normally, and pretend he doesn't imagine Ruka naked every time he sees her. He is determined that his embarrassing secret never be made public!

Legit cried at times on this one.

RIP Nakano Junko
Honestly, it's a good story, but I still wished similar to Ruka, I wished Shizuka also stopped before doing the deed in time of desperation. That's probably why I can't give this a higher score than 8.

SPOILER: Especially, since his middle school crush had no intention of staying with him, and Shizuka had no intention of staying with her happily. Unneeded drama - could have used those chapters to showcase better interaction b/w the two MC's, and their relationships b/w their best friends/family.

7.5(or 8)/10 - worth a read, but not a reread.
Generic seinen Rom-Com. It's decent for what it is, but it's not anything that's going to stick with you. (besides the first 3 pages, I mean that's how you start a seinen Rom-Com)

though in my case, it's Chisa x Pon that made me interested in her manga (especially after reading Bitter Virgin and Cross x Crime), and from there on to Hetakoi.
I do remember all the flaming arguments we had about where the story would head to while waiting impatiently for the next volume to be released ... good times :)
Good read same with B-Shock, Rip Nakano Junko.
