its absolutely cool manga a lesbian romance and worth for live action!
4 November 2013 | by cloudsentiSee all my reviews

hen is written by Hiroya Oku, its about a girl Chizuru Yoshida a popular model and excel student trying to find herself if does love exist because a man of his life is just for play, until she found out that girl next door will change her its the first time she think of only one person but a girl and doubt that she is lesbian, until she founds out that she really fall in love to Azumi Yamada the girl blooms her heart and learn she will give up herself if it just azumi. hen has 94 chapter in manga and every chapter is interesting the story flows with comedy,drama and romance hen is also name "strange love" and it has been taken into live action in 1996 and its little bit frustrating, i hope if its move into another live action it will be like hana yori dango that put exact detail of the story.
