Asa chun! © Hanaya En/Shogakukan [First serialized in Cheese! Zoukan] · Hana wa Knife o Mi ni Matou © Sakurada Hina/Shogakukan [First serialized in Cheese! and Flowers]. Published in Indonesia as Asa chun! and The Flower With Knife by Tiga Lancar Comic/3L
Four years we haven't seen each other, and he turns into such a hottie!? And I have to LIVE with him for a whole month!?
Akane's doki-doki days, start-OH! She feigns miserable under all that heartbeep pressure, but I bet she likes it. Him, her Childhood Buddy turned Live-in Lover, I mean.
Live-in Lover regardless, it isn't Asa chun! what carries teh Mature or [DEWASA] label; that "honor" is reserved for The Flower With Knife:
School girl Kako models for her art teacher, and she wants Enjo Sensei to look at no other girl but her. She confesses her love for him the day before graduation, only to be rejected by Sensei who tells her, "Your feelings are only an illusion." What's worse, she learns that her beloved teacher is already engaged.
Kako has problems accepting, which prompts her to sneak into his room, where she sees Sensei kissing Yuri, her good friend. Her emotions spiral out of control and...
Knife has to figure in there somewhere.

Other Hanaya En manga
Before Asa chun!, 3L published Hanaya En's Shoujo with a Male Lead Dakishimete Ii desu ka, the Can I Hug You name-dropped at the top of the post, in November 2010. But the first Hanaya En shoujo manga 3L licensed was the
Student Council, Transfer Student Ookamitachi no Gohoubi or Wolves Reward.
Other Sakurada Hina manga
As far as I know, 3L has only published one other Sakurada Hina manga before Hana wa Knife o Mi ni Matou or The Flower With Knife — the Kimi ni Moete Ii desu ka? shoujo smut retitled May I Burn Cause of You?
Smut actually tends to litter Sakurada Hina-sensei's backlist. There's the psycho(logical) Tarou-kun wa Yuganderu (Flower Comics compile: 2011.01); the
Incest, Sister Complex, Shounen-ai Subplot, LGBT Character in a Non-Yaoi/Yuri Manga Oujitachi wa Izonsuru (FC: 2009.02); Otokonoko wa Hachimitsu, first serialized In Mobile Flowers (FC: 2008.05); and Kanojo no Honnou, first serialized in Cheese! (FC: 2007.07).
In addition to the nookie fests, Sakurada Hina-sensei has produced fairly safe romances (at least, they're not obviously categorized as smut)—Hatsukoi ni Oboreta (Flower Comics: 2008.04) and Mitsu na Kotoshite Kudasai (FC: 2006.01)— and a couple of intriguing shoujo titles — Korosareru nara, Isso Sakura no Ki no Shita de AKA Dead Friend's Love Letter, formerly serialized in Cheese! (FC: 2011.06) and Bunbetsu to Takan (FC: 2010.09), based on the Sense and Sensibility lit classic.
Babble done. See you next 3L release ^^/
