All three volumes of the romantic comedy Haru Hana are complied in this one book. Yuana Kazumi's manga is a cute tale of a girl with an allergy to boys and a boy with no memory of his past, who both have a way to heal a person's spirits.

When Hana Yamada moves to Tokyo from Osaka, she is immediately sold into slavery by her older sister to pay off her debts at a relaxation room. To make matters worse, the shop's masseur, Haru, is the cutest boy at her school and his good looks cause her to break out whenever he touches her. Luckily, a cup of green tea is all it takes to cure her. However, that does not stop Haru from purposefully aggravating her condition.

Haru, though, has a problem of his own: after witnessing his mother's death at the hands of his father, he lost all of his memories. It will take a lot for these two to trust each other enough to work together ... and even more if they are to be friends.

Haru Hana is a cute and uplifting story. While nothing about it really makes it stand apart from other shojo manga, Yuana Kazumi has crafted a tale that will warm your heart and make for some nice, sweet, breezy reading.
