It's always so funny when a manga is like "she's so tall", but it turns out she's only like 170cm.

It's a pretty stereotypical plot ("I didn't think it was okay to do X until she came along and told me it was okay to do X"), but it seems nice. The art is good, and the characters seem decent, even if they're a bit on the young side (I prefer high school romance stories over middle school; I think it feels a lot more believable - though maybe this is just because I had a horrific time in middle school).

I mean, they appear to be like 14-ish (she's a second year in middle school and the black hair girl is a first year in middle school). That's pretty tall for that age, right?

Feels like a new hit or not... As you said this trope is not original but art is cute and dancing is cool ... Kinda feels like a love triangle will comme if it becomes popular maybe it will have enough drama to become an anime like Citrus

Yeah "MC overcomes the totally existent pressure to not be traditionally feminine in order to be traditionally feminine" is not really the stirring coming of age tale it keeps being portrayed as.

That's definitely a trope I hate, as I've said several times in these forums. I wouldn't really say this is a case of that though, it seems more like she's just insecure about being kinda tall.

Uhh... alright. I guess it's just the art style then because they certainly do not look it. Her height also isn't very odd for high school (equivalent is 5ft 8in). Yeah, it's a bit on the high side, but I doubt she would have even been top 3 women in my rather small high school classes.

Statistically, average is a couple inches lower over there, I think, but it's not -that- different.

I know it's Japan, but It's not like it's impossible for a Japanese girl to be taller than 170ish centimeters, but that's almost always where the tall girls in manga fall. It's just kinda chuckle worthy. Especially since they never really look it, they usually look taller. Most notable in my mind is the manga Lovely Complex, the main girl is said to be around there as well but she looks more like six feet tall.

First of all, I'd suggest basing judgments on what school they're in on, you know, what they actually say, not on how tall you imagine they should be. Second of all, the average 17-year-old girl in Japan is 5'1". This is the weirdest and most baseless thing to complain about.

Chill, we're just talking, you seem to think we are making a bigger deal about this than we actually are, I know it's hard to parse out tone in text but I assure you, this is a neutral conversation.

god i hope not. I dont think it needs a love triangle or to be Citrus-like in drama style.


Feels to me like short-haired childhood friend might like her but has a complex of some kind that prompted her to ditch her for another partner without explanation. A stupid move if she does like protag-chan.

i have good hopes for this main couple as the dynamic between them feels so good.

This art style sure resembles Liz and the Blue Bird's

Or maybe, it's just me?

Japanese girls are on average about an inch shorter than their Western counterparts and those statistics are probably outdated. And that's a mean average. Based upon statistical distribution there should be a number of girls that are near the mc's height. It's a poorly executed conceit by the aurhor.

Kiki is 172 cm. Beginning of school year, 2nd year, so Kiki is probably 16; 1st years would be 15.

https://tall.life/height-percentile-calculator-age-country/

Kiki would be 93%ile among 15yo girls, with 1 in 14 taller. If we give her an extra cm, 94.9 %ile, taller than 1 in 20.

172 is probably enough for her insecurity when she wants to be a follower while dancing with girls. A bigger number might match the art better. She's being drawn as a head taller than other girls, which I think would be 15-20 cm difference. Given a 15yo average of 162 cm, +15 would be 177 cm... 98.9%ile, 1 in 100 level. +20 cm would be 182cm, 99.868 %ile, 1 in 760.
