Suki Desu Suzuki-kun!! (好きです鈴木くん!!, lit. "I Like You, Suzuki-kun!!"), alternatively known as The Lovin' "S", is a manga series written and illustrated by Gō Ikeyamada. It began its serialization in October 2008 in the magazine Shōjo Comic and ended in June 2012. The chapters are collected and bound in tankōbon format by Shogakukan under the Flower Comics label. An original video animation for the series was released in late 2009, along with a game for the Nintendo DS in the summer of 2010.
The story of the manga centers on four classmates who just entered the same junior high school together. On the first day of school, a boy named Hikaru Suzuki sees a talented girl named Sayaka performing lines from a drama on the school's rooftop, and he cannot take his eyes off her. Even as Hikaru becomes interested in Sayaka, his longtime friend Chihiro secretly pines for him. On top of that, a boy named Shinobu Suzuki — no relation to Hikaru — is falling for Chihiro.
