manga: gokinjo monogatari  

Title: ご近所ものがたり (The Neighborhood Story)
Mangaka: Yazawa Ai
Genre: Shoujo, Slice of Life
Length: 7 Volumes
Scanlator: Shoujo Magic

Summary: (from Shoujo Magic) Ever since he was small, all the girls in the neighborhood have fawned over Tsutomu Yamaguchi, whose name came from a song and whose adorable face closely resembles the monkey character Monchichi's. Even back then, it was enough to make his friend and neighbor Mikako sick. Now that he's a little more grown, Tsutomu looks like the lead vocalist of Manbou, Ken Nakagawa, and that makes him even more popular with the ladies. But Mikako -- now a trendy teen with modern sensibilities -- couldn't care less. Or could she...? "Gokinjo Monogatari" is a sharp-witted and stylish slice-of-life story!

*A personal favorite of mine. Somehow, all of Yazawa Ai's works are my favorite. If you like her other mangas like Paradise Kiss or Nana, you might like this one too. :)
