The Neat and Pretty Girl at My New School Is a Childhood Friend of Mine Who I Thought Was a Boy (WN)


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I met my childhood friend again, and she had become a beautiful and innocent girl.

“It’s been a while, Hayato.”
“Haruki, is it?”

In the past, I used to play in the mud with my childhood friend in the countryside, and when I saw him again, there was no trace of the bratty young man I thought he was back then. Only in front of Hayato, she threw away the coat she was wearing and reacted in the same crass way she did back then. The distance between you and me has not changed.

“Take off your socks and sit on the ground… I can see it you know.”
“Do you want to see it?”
“I don’t want to see it!”
“Then why don’t you just stop looking? Unless… huuh~?”
“Sh*t, that’s not how it works!”

I was so frustrated at being treated like that that I tried treating her like a girl and got a surprising response…

The countryside and the city.
A boy and a girl.
A mind and body that has changed.
But the same feelings and promises.

Furthermore, the best friend of the younger sister whom they left in the countryside, the girl who is a member of the gardening club who grows vegetables, and the reunion and encounter with them. And then―

This is a story about a childhood friend and how they gradually make up for the distance and time they’ve been apart, starting one summer.

Very nice and sweet light novel, with the current direction there may be some sad backstory, but it looks very tame overall

Giving it a 5 since it's hard to find a novel similar to this one here on NU.

First off, the novel is not one of the cliche, mob guy getting deus ex machina'd and have an encounter with the heroine. The guy is practically normal!!! No, dark and gloomy guy bullsh*t we get from the genre "Romance, School Life light novels" we have in NU.

Light, flluffy, still with some mystery to why the FL is dashing up a facade to others (she acts normally with the MC). Definetly a story... more>> with potential since I cant find another novel in NU with similar story to this one <<less

I got fooled by the average 4.1 rating. I like the interesting premise but this is like the most amateur of amateurs. The chapters are too short, scenes and dialogue feel awkward and forced. The translation mostly seems decent but at times gets the context (ie what topic or person the line is indirectly referring to) wrong and becomes nonsense. Not a big deal usually but because the chapters are short and have just about 10+ lines of dialogue, just 1 or 2 nonsensical lines ruins it. Overall making for... more>> not a great read. <<less

Not horrible but not particularly good, so I dropped at chapter 11. It's really slow paced and uninteresting. I've enjoyed very few of the MC and FMC scenes together - I don't think they have much good chemistry or exciting/engaging moments. There's a lot of side things happening/described that I don't care for with the rest of the class, sister/home scenes, etc that I don't think contribute to the core romance, which itself is pretty weak. Scenes are fairly short, and sometimes the context of who is speaking and about... more>> what is lost a bit as well and takes a few seconds to realize what is being said to who.

I also do feel there's quite a few cliches going on. Ex beautiful childhood friend who only shows her true self to MC, and the rest of the classmates pointing things out like "oh why is she talking to him" "does she like him", etc. It feels tropey and similar to a lot of other works I've read, and it doesn't do much different from the formula to make me want to continue, along with just not being fun or interesting to read. <<less

weird Ik but the rating is it high so lets balance it out. The introduction at the beginning is ok. And gradually the guy got weird and the conversations are unrealistic and the MC is autistic or something and the conversation from classmates are forced like the other guy said that gave it a 1 star I feel I got fooled. And yhea when I read it I feel like im reading something a teen would right in there puberty
