Sakuragi Hinako has a hard time talking with others. In order to get over her paralyzing shyness, Hinako leaves her home in the country because she ends up starting school at the high school that has the drama club that she admires and ends up staying at Hitotose-sou. There, she meets Kuina, who loves books and to eat, Mayuki, who’s a bit older but smaller who’s good at cooking, and the quiet landlady with the hot body, Chiaki-san. A cute and fun drama comedy about the former girl who was paralyzed from shyness
The Hinako Note manga first kicked off in the pages of Comic Cune magazine in 2014. The four-panel comedy revolves around Hinako, an introverted girl whose quirky friends and and connection to animals leads to hilarity. For example, sometimes she ends up being used as a scarecrow while others see Hinako encountering surprise visitors in the local library.
