[Quiz] - test your shoujo knowledge ^^


See if anyone could get this right – what is the manga (title and/or mangaka) of the following picture?






For a first peep, I really thought it was a scene from Candy Candy. But well, I can honestly tell you it’s not. Below a similar but the ACTUAL scene between Candy and Terry in the manga:





more clues below in case you are still wondering : )



Okie dude, no more guessing.

This was actually scene taken from “Mimoza-yakata de Tsukamaete” (ミモザ館でつかまえて) by  ŌSHIMA Yumiko (大島弓子), 1973

Description: The protagonist Haruka is a new teacher in a secondary school. She decides to settle herself in the Mimosa pension. The owner is young man who offers her a low-rent on one condition: helping to prepare dinner every evening. Haruka accepts, but is astonished when she finds out the next day that Areira, the young man, is a student of her class (From Baka-Updates).
