Manga / Suki: A Like Story

"I like you, that's why I like you."

A three-volume Manga by the powerhouse CLAMP, it follows the story of a Pollyanna named Hinata Asahi (nicknamed Hina). Living in a bare house, all alone except for two teddy bears, she is excited when Stern Teacher Shirou Asou moves in next door. What begins as a simple 'like story' (as opposed to a 'love story') slowly turns sinister as the reasons for Shirou's interest in her grows clear...


Tropes:

  • Lonely Rich Kid: Subverted in that Hina is nearly always amazingly (and honestly) cheerful.
  • Look Both Ways: Averted in that the car was intentionally attempting to run Hina down.
