A cute and active female student is transferred to an elementary school and comes to grips with activities and love.

This is a girls’ comic and is probably one of the oldest manga I read in my life. The characters and the story attracted me even though it wasn’t common that boys read girls’ comic at that time. The story has many episodes that contain love triangle, sport games, challenging to be a singer, etc. This manga series has 31 tankobon volumes.
