''Kimi no Iru Machi'' (translated: A Town Where You Live) is a manga by Creator/SeoKouji, notable for his other series ''Manga/{{Suzuka}}''. Haruto Kirishima is a typical highschooler living in the countryside: worrying about school and his UnrequitedLove, Nanami Kanzaki. Everything's been normal until one day a stranger by the name of Yuzuki Eba announces that she's come from [[TokyoIsTheCentreOfTheUniverse Tokyo]] to the countryside (Hiroshima) to attend High School. What's more, she's going to be living at his house, which of course worries Haruto about how that will look on him. Life just got interesting when this stranger came to town.

The series is a blend of romantic drama and romantic comedy, said to be a "character-driven romance", and set in Seo Kouji's hometown. Over the course of its run, it seems to have gradually shifted towards more of a HaremComedy[=/=]drama based around {{Sitcom}}-ish misunderstandings and hijinks. The series began in May 2008 and ended in February 2014. A two-episode OVA series was released in 2012, followed by a TV anime series scheduled for the Summer2013Anime season.

----
!!This series provides examples of:
* [[TenMinuteRetirement 10 Minute Breakup]]: Done multiple times between Haruto and Yuzuki. If they have a fight or seem to seperate, expect them to make up or get back together within three chapters.
** Except in the ending, where Seo Kouji decides to throw caution to the wind and completely shake the story up by having them get back together out of the blue, get married, and have a kid at the age of 5 within four chapters.
* AbortedDeclarationOfLove: Done at the Kyoyasai after the school festival, Yuzuki turns Haruto down ''just before'' he asks her out.
* AccidentalPornomancer: Haruto. Count the number of female characters who haven't: a) attempted to jump his bones (often [[LadyDrunk drunkenly]]), b) been pictured in cheesecake poses to make him look like an AccidentalPervert, c) hinted at or outright admitted to being attracted to/having a crush on him, and then subtract that from the total number of female characters.
* ACupAngst: Mishima
-->'''Mishima:''' Besides, what's with that chest of hers?! What does she eat to get those?!
* AllWomenAreLustful: The overtones of this are unavoidable when the reader notices the sheer amount of female characters seemingly eager to either line up for a ride in the Haruto-go-round, or failing that just flirting with him extremely obviously (Rin and the driving instructor being noticeable examples of the latter). Turns outright {{Squick}}y when even Chisa, one of Yuzuki's former students and most certainly ''under'' the age of consent, way too easily decides to let Haruto have his way with her. Haruto calls her out on it.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: It seemed like Yuzuki was expecting Haruto to do this to her in Chapter 198. As she is visibly angry at him for not doing anything after she "went to sleep".
** She does this again when she comes to visit him, wondering when they are going to go to his place rather than sight seeing.
** Chisa actually seems non-plussed at the idea that Haruto is not going to have sex with her because of the small fact that it would be ''incredibly illegal'' because of her being underage.
*** Well maybe not so illegal, the laws around that in Japan are a bit tricky.
* ArmourPiercingSlap: Both to Haruto, and by him. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kimi_no_iru_machi/v14/c140/16.html Quite satisfying for some of the readers out there.]]
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:Haruto and Yuzuki, in the last chapter.]]
* BathtubBonding: Asuka and Aoi do this regularly, Akari and Kiyomi are especially fond of it & Yuzuki takes Nanami off for a spot of this early on. Asuka is pulled into some group bath sessions on her first trip to Hiroshima, but they just end up upsetting her.
* BeneathTheMask: When Haruto first meets Rin Eba he wonders how such a level headed person could be related to [[CloudCuckooLander Yuzuki]], even if only as step-sisters. Eventually Rin gets tired enough of the mask that she completely discards it with Haruto, in fact she is more honest with herself around Haruto [[spoiler: and eventually Yuzuki]] that she doesn't put it back on around them, leading her to become...
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Rin seems to enjoy the ever-loving-crap out of this one.
** [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Some seem to think of Yuzuki as this as well]].
* [[BlindDate Blind Mass Date]]: In Japan called a Goukon, Haruto is begged by one of his college friends to go with him to one so that the numbers will be even. [[spoiler: It is here where Haruto sees Yuzuki again after about two years.]]
* ButtMonkey: Mina Nagoshi, who manages to always misinterpret everything about Haruto to her own detriment.
* CharacterFocus: The focus of the story changes numerous times to the point where it's not really clear which girl is actually "winning."
* CoolBigSis: Haruto's older sister, Aoi. Easily.
* ConflictingLoyalty: Haruto deals with this a lot, [[spoiler: whether it be his feelings for Yuzuki versus his friendship with Kazama or his desire to be with Yuzuki over his connection to Asuka]], things get complicated as a result.
* ChastityCouple: Haruto and Asuka were together for almost two years and yet they never got past the occasional kiss.
** Haruto and Yuzuki did the same, up until issue 200.
* ChildhoodFriends: Haruto, Takashi and Akari, [[spoiler: also had no idea that he and Yuzuki met before the start of the series.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: Yuzuki Eba. Later on this aspect is toned down and replaced with [[SatelliteLoveInterest being Haruto's girlfriend]].
* CloudCuckooLandersMinder: Before the move Haruto claimed the reason he could not leave Yuzuki alone was because she would get into trouble without him there to keep her out of it.
* CovertPervert: Haruto's new neighbor Miyu DoesNotLikeMen, but manages to interpret every other thing Haruto says as something indecent. Not to mention, it doesn't take much to make her go along with them. She seems to show a more perverted side when drunk.
* CruelToBeKind: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] Haruto attempts to make Chisa dislike him, and when every other of his methods fails he tries acting like a complete sexist prick and demanding he "have his way with her". He is incredibly horrified when Chisa actually responds by lying down on the floor and inviting him to do so.
* CrossOver: With Manga/{{Suzuka}}, Seo Kouji's other work. Kimi starts roughly when Suzuka's ending. The cast of Suzuka occasionally make [[TheCameo brief appearances in the background]].
* CryIntoChest: Haruto pulls [[spoiler: Yuzuki]] into one of these after her breakdown.
* DamselInDistress: Yuzuki, much too often.
* DanceOfRomance: Averted, Haruto spends several chapters trying to dance with Yuzuki at the Kyoyasai after the school festival, only to cause a bigger misunderstanding with the people around him.
* DearJohnLetter: Yuzuki writes one to Haruto and puts it in a present she gave him, however it was several months (and several attempts to stay with her regardless) later that he actually found and read the letter.
* DeathGlare: Akari, Asakura, and Nanami portray some chillingly-textbook-perfect examples of this in chapter 115 and 117. Asuka as well in Chapter 116.
* DepravedHomosexual: [[TheScrappy A new girl]] added to the story whose sole characteristic is to [[AnythingThatMoves hit on every woman that cross her field of vision]].
* DerailingLoveInterests: And how.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: Haruto is left discouraged by the fact that his friends and Yuzuki seem to have clearer goals in life; while he shows an aptitude and passion for cooking, he is unsure about whether he can do it for a living and instead ends up employed at a brewing company.
* TheDitz: Yuzuki.
** Miyu, even harder.
** Chisa, Miyu's replacement as Haruto and Yuzuki's neighbour, continues the tradition.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Haruto's new neighbor Miyu, due to being constantly hit on by persistent guys. [[spoiler:Haruto of course becomes the exception.]]
* EasilyForgiven: A lot of the screw ups that Yuzuki does to Haruto are often forgiven or not even thought of after she gives him a big eyed look.
** Thankfully averted by Haruto after [[spoiler:he breaks up very roughly with Asuka in chapter 141 to reunite with Yuzuki, leading his friends to ostracise him. It takes about 20 chapters until Haruto and Yuzuki start to gradually reconcile with Haruto's friends, in chapters 166 and 169.]]
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Haruto and [[spoiler:Asuka]].
** Yep, their first encounter definitely qualifies as a MeetCute.
** Don't forget Haruto and Yuzuki being the most blatant from the beginning.
* {{Fainting}}: Yuzuki suddenly faints in the middle of the train station in chapter 255, and awakens later in hospital to be informed that it was due to excessive stress and exhaustion. Some slight FridgeBrilliance is involved: Yuzuki always shows up in Kochi in the morning, despite the fact that Kochi does not have a direct high-speed rail link to Tokyo and she would have to change trains at one point; this sets up Rin's revealing to Haruto that she was actually taking the night bus because she couldn't really afford the trips, doing all of her work on it and waiting in an internet café until Haruto arrived.
* FalseRapeAccusation: A girl comes up to Haruto and explains that she knew the guy that Asuka was seeing and he dumped her after they had sex. It turns out this was a complete lie and she just wanted to break them up so she [[spoiler:could go after Asuka]]. What was her punishment? [[EasilyForgiven A "I'm sorry" and all was forgiven]].
* FriendlessBackground: [[spoiler: Haruto abruptly turns around when he sees all of his old friends talking with Asuka on the other side of a street.]]
* {{Fanservice}}
* [[spoiler: GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion]]: After it turns out the Kiyomi [[spoiler: is pregnant]], both her and Takashi separately come to the conclusion [[spoiler: to keep the baby]].
* IllBoy: Kazama.
* InnocentCohabitation: Yuzuki initially ''lives'' with Haruto and Asuka might has well have, though nothing happened at those times.
* InVinoVeritas: Haruto's neighbor Miyu is normally something of a ShrinkingViolet. Give her a little alcohol and she loosens up to borderline GenkiGirl levels. She's also makes for a Mean Drunk.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Why the story can get really complicated.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: When a party is thrown for Miyu prior to her leaving to study abroad in chapter 229, flashbacks and inner monologue show Haruto and Yuzuki consider her to be this, as her cheerful disposition frequently lightened the mood during Haruto's period of FriendlessBackground and hostility to Yuzuki's father, and her comically bad [[PoorCommunicationKills communication skills]] actually drove them to reconcile during the Okinawan vacation.
* LongDistanceRelationship: Attempted by Haruto with Yuzuki, but the first time, things... happen. He is currently trying it again after being posted to work in Kochi while Yuzuki remains in Tokyo, with... somewhat more success.
** [[spoiler: Until Haruto breaks up with Yuzuki in chapter 256.]]
** Haruto's co-worker also attempted this... less successfully.
* LoveEpiphany: Happens to Haruto after Nanami and his sister point out to him who he's really been in love with all along.
** [[spoiler:Rin realizes far too late that she loves Haruto when a friend points out that, despite claiming she's happy Haruto and her sister have taken their relationship to the next level, she's crying.]]
* LoveTriangle: The beginning of the manga starts off with one for three primary leads: Yuzuki, Haruto, and Nanami.
** LoveDodecahedron: ...and it eventually evolves into this once the Tokyo arc gets past TheReveal.
* LoveHurts
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Yuzuki comes across as this early on, [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl when she is much more enthusiastic and optimistic while Haruto is withdrawn and resentful about having her living with his family]].
* {{Meido}}: They decide to do a made cafe for the summer festival.
* MistakenDeclarationOfLove: ''Several'' of Haruto's classmates throughout the story believe he has done as such.
* MomentKiller: Asuka calls [[spoiler: Haruto]] just in time to avert a Make Up Kiss.
** Rin reveals her presence just in time to avert a very romantic kiss in Chapter 155.
** At this point it pretty much feels like Seo's only trick, as you can easily spot the set up for one.
* NoodleIncident: Yuzuki offered Haruto a ride on her bike shortly after she learned how to use one, cue next panel where the mechanic that is fixing Haruto's bike now has another to repair. This incident is called back to at least twice later.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: This plot is recycled so often, it's best if you ''don't'' try taking a shot every time Haruto or anybody else says this; the risk of alcohol poisoning is too strong. The "Cats Aren't That Bad" and "Crabs" chapters are particularly heavy-handed about it, but the chapter detailing how Haruto spent the night at his ex-girlfriend Asuka's house after getting totally FUBAR drunk is close behind.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Rin claims Yuzuki is to dumb to be her rival and in the beginning Haruto thinks along the same lines, however the Tokyo Arc seems to go to lengths to show her as this and she had typically higher grades than the other students in Hiroshima.
* OneDialogueTwoConversations: This manga could be considered TheSeries of this trope. Seriously one cannot go three chapters without the [[IdiotPlot story of the week situation around a character thinking of one thing and everyone else thinking of something entirely different]]. Though it doesn't help that the characters have a habit of using vague comments. Some Key Examples being:
** Yuzuki being told that erectile dysfunction could lead to failed relationships. Believing the it is some kind of Gum Disease she goes around casually asking all of her friends about Haruto might having this.
** Yuzuki's friend asks if she and Haruto would like to try this sometime to which she holds up a magazine with an article about a vacation. Yuzuki sees another article about sexual exploration and thinks she wants to have a threesome, and is later shocked that Haruto is so casual about accepting. (The scanslation [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the fact that the joke doesn't translate well to English, since it relies on a {{Pun}} based on the meanings of the verb "to go on" in Japanese.)
** Haruto is on a trip with an old female friend to which he causally mentions that he met up with someone he hasn't seen in awhile and is happy to be with her. While he was talking about his girlfriend Yuzuki, she believed he was confessing his feelings to her.
** Then there is the situation where Haruto's female neighbour Miyu asked if there was anything she could do to help him after he helped her earlier. He comments that she could help help him with a load he needs to get out. While he is talking about his dirty laundry, she assumed he wanted to have sex with her.
** And yet again when Miyu tried to get Haruto and Yuzuki back together. Through her jokes to break the tension Haruto assumed that Yuzuki wanted to break up with him and Yuzuki assumed Haruto wanted to commit suicide.
** Frankly, somewhere between "half" and "most" of the series wouldn't happen if the characters were capable of communicating clearly and directly like adult human beings.
* OutOfFocus: Quite a few characters come and go over the course of the series, like Nurumi Kanzaki or Kikukawa, but the character with the steepest drop in prominence is probably Nanami, who went from one of the major focuses and love interests in the series with plenty of cover appearances to boot, to one of the most minor supporting characters, with less dialogue & character interaction than the rest of the supporting cast and no more cover or chapter title appearances for about 100 issues. She also tends to appear at the back of group shots.
* PairTheSpares: So far pretty much the entire cast has gotten into a relationship. Even [[spoiler: Nanami, much to the [[DieForOurShip ire of her fans]]]].
* PleaseDontLeaveMe: All but actually said by [[spoiler: Asuka]] when [[spoiler: she]] feels the distance between [[spoiler: herself and Haruto]] grow after they come back from Hiroshima together.
** Haruto and Yuzuki also seem to have made a commitment to never leave each other again. (Cue interference from life.)
* PromotedToLoveInterest: Asuka and Haruto started out as awkward friends who gathered around Kazama, [[spoiler: after he died]] they decided to pursue a romantic relationship, [[MeetCute the spark was there after all.]]
* RelationshipUpgrade: One of the signs of this taking place between Haruto and Yuzuki is that Haruto stops calling Yuzuki [[LastNameBasis "Eba"]] and switches to calling her [[FirstNameBasis "Yuzuki" instead]].
* RuleOfDrama: Yes. Especially the plot starts focusing on Yuzuki.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Haruto and Yuzuki have this dynamic in the start.
* SecondActBreakUp: Mutual between Haruto and Yuzuki. [[spoiler: However Haruto and Asuka, not so much...]]
* SecondLove: [[spoiler:Asuka Mishima is shaping up to be this to Haruto]]. Whether or not it lasts on the other hand...
* SheIsAllGrownUp: She was [[http://mangafox.me/manga/kimi_no_iru_machi/v01/c001/4.html no slouch to begin with]], but [[http://www.mangareader.net/kimi-no-iru-machi/118/18 after two years apart]] Yuzuki became ''stunning.''
** Rin definitely qualifies as well.
* ShipSinking: [[spoiler:The aftermath of the Tokyo arc goes to no short lengths to tell the reader that Haruto/Yuzuki is ''not'' happening. Likewise, Nanami tells Haruto that he's too late when he returns home over the winter break.]]
** Although as of chapter 119, [[spoiler:the former has been slowly resurfacing.]]
*** And finally [[spoiler:de-sunk]] as of chapters 140-141, with [[spoiler: Haruto and Yuzuki]] being promoted to an OfficialCouple and even proposing marriage in issue 235.
**** And then [[spoiler:''re''-sunk]] in chapter 256. Anyone else smell an indecisive author?
***** And finally [[spoiler:'''re'''-de-sunk]] in chapter 260, just in time for the ending.
* ShotgunWedding: Turns out [[spoiler: Kiyomi's parents had one, which makes it easier for her and Takashi to admit that they are getting married and she is pregnant]].
* SkewedPriorities: An amusing example comes after Haruto and Yuzuki rekindle their relationship: when Yuzuki's parents initially decide to move to Nagoya and the possibility that they'll bring her along is in the air in chapter 153, Haruto is very overdramatic about it and resolves to convince Yuzuki's parents to let her stay in Tokyo, despite the fact that Nagoya is only 3 hours of Shinkansen high-speed rail service away from Tokyo. Later in the plot, Haruto is way more accepting and literally responds that ItCantBeHelped when his employer sends him to Kochi in chapters 247-248, despite the fact that Kochi would be at least ''7 hours away'' (going by Google Maps) and does not have any direct high-speed rail connections to Tokyo, meaning that Haruto and Yuzuki would only be capable of visiting each other on the weekends, which proved heavily stressful to Yuzuki. (Either that, or Haruto just fails at Japanese geography.)
* SnowMeansLove: Haruto takes Yuzuki to see a local event where ice on a lake will crystallize into something that looks like a flower, it was after this that Yuzuki agreed to a LongDistanceRelationship with him.
** It was also snowing when Haruto and Asuka confessed to each other.
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: Miyu seems to have this problem.
* SquaringTheLoveTriangle: After he gets to Tokyo Haruto is in a pretty standard LoveTriangle with Yuzuki and Kazama, both of whom share feelings for her. Then Kiyomi Asakura shows up.
* StepfordSmiler: Yuzuki and Akari.
* TakeThat: To George Morikawa in response to his own TakeThat to the more recent plot elements of ''KimiNoIruMachi'' in ''HajimeNoIppo''... maybe. It's like he attempted to return fire without a witty counter.
* ThoseTwoGuys: More like that couple: Kaga and Yura, though they aren't in a relationship.
* [[ThroughHisStomach Through Her Stomach:]] This was Haruto's plan to win back Yuzuki from Kazama.
* TimeSkip: Two in less than 10 chapters.
* TrainStationGoodbye: How Yuzuki gets together with ''and'' breaks up with Haruto. At least the first time anyway... and the second time...
* {{Tsundere}}: Amagi, the chef that Haruto worked under part-time.
** Haruto for Yuzuki.
* TrueBlueFemininity: Nanami, who is usually gentle, sweet-natured & loves cooking usually wears blue.
* [[UnderstandingBoyfriend Understanding Girlfriend:]] Asuka was almost ''saintly'' in what Haruto put her through (His college buddy forcing him to the Goukon, the very existence of Shiori Amaya and the notes that get passed around about them doing it on their trip to Okinawa). However all that came to a crashing end eventually.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Akari for Haruto, Kiyomi for Kazuma.
* UnwantedHarem: A rather small one, but it's still there, around Haruto.
** Small? It may include [[spoiler: Yuzuki, Rin, Nanami, Akari, Shiho?, Asuka, Nagoshi and... possibly Kotone? At least 4, definitely.]]
** Really, when even newly introduced female characters somehow find their way into suggestive poses around Haruto or outright try to jump him, the series starts to be less of a romantic comedy/drama, and more of a harem comedy.
* [[spoiler: WeUsedToBeFriends: ''Everyone'' Haruto and Yuzuki were friends with before they got back together. To the point that Haruto was given the ultimatum to fix his relationship with Asuka or flat out lose their freindship, by his [[SarcasmMode Best Friend]] of all people.]]
* WhamEpisode: Chapter 49, 89, and 100. Especially once it's clear that [[spoiler:Yuzuki x Haruto is sunk following their friend/rival's death]].
** Chapter 119: [[spoiler: Yuzuki returns after a long absence.]]
** Chapter 140-141: [[spoiler: Haruto breaks up with Asuka. Yuzuki x Haruto is raised and recommissioned.]]
** Chapter 256: [[spoiler:Yuzuki x Haruto is re-sunk. Any bets on number of chapters until the re-raising and recommissioning?]]
** Chapter 260: [[spoiler:Haruto is transferred back to Tokyo. Yuzuki x Haruto is re-raised and recommissioned.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Averted for the most part, much to the consternation of most of the fanbase.
** Defied as of chapter 141, [[spoiler: just about all of Haruto's friends call him out on breaking up with Asuka and even Yuzuki gets called out for it. However they decide that their relationship together is what they want and pursue it regardless.]]
* {{Yandere}}: Haruto displays some yandere characteristics in the Tokyo arc, especially after he learns why Yuzuki broke up with him.
** Nanami might be a debateable case. If she does indeed have feelings for Haruto (though it's unlikely) then she would be this. For reference, please look near the top of the page under DEATH GLARE. Also, she has [[{{Yandere}} Yandere eyes]] that would give [[VisualNovel/{{SchoolDays}} Kotonoha Katsura]] a run for her money.
* YouAreNotAlone: [[spoiler: Yuzuki intended to leave Haruto's life forever after she said goodbye to his hometown, cue Haruto giving her one of these as well as a CooldownHug at the end of her speech.]]
