Mars is an extraordinary slice of life

This manga was like a great novel. It took me on a realistic journey of the trials tribulations but most importantl, the love involved in in life. It showed me that love is not all about romance and infatuation - it also includes accepting everything about your partner including their past because that is what makes you who you are. Mars also showed me that someone can still get close to their parents even after a turbulant childhood, that you can get over the mistakes of the past and form stronger bonds as two adults as apposed to parent and child.
AWESOME manga, it may not be perfect but it gets a "10" from me. i can't wait to read it again

I've always held the opinion that Mars is one of-if not the-best shoujo mangas out there. I intend to reread it very soon.

this manga is sophisticated, romantic to the appropriate extend, funny, balanced, smart, interesting, and so much more...the relationships are very well-developed...the characters were explored in each of their own way, so that in the end, you can't help but love them all (even the bastardly antagonist)....it's mellow, strong, sad, joyous, and completed on so many levels.....this is one of those manga that once finished, you have to let out a satisfying sigh, feeling completely full-filled, yet still lingering a sense of wanting for more.....this just an amazing manga....one of the rare fews that actually teaches you something about life....

the reality and heavy topics really got me.
there were funny moments,
the heavier stuff always seemed to weigh it down,
making it the perfect balance.
it started out just like any other manga,
but every volume stacked up the goodness,
making it worthwhile.

I couldn't get past the first major arc

I liked it, but I didn't get past the first arc, with that chick from the past and his twin brother. It was just plain annoying. The story would conclude that this was what happened, and make you think it was the end of that, but then it just keeps adding and adding on. For example, instead of just telling us the ONE *real* reason of what happened/who killed his twin, it was just layers. First, it was an accident. Then it was the chick from the past. Then it was suicide. Then it was Rei. OK!!!!!!! Get on with it already!
If someone spoils me and tells me the later arcs are not like that then maybe I will pick this up again. But jesus, it was just annoying.

It's pure love from the beginning to the end.

The author portraits with maestry the universve that we confine inside ourselves... and with extreme accurateness, she captures the subtilty of the nuances of a human soul... Our fears, our desires, the secrets we don't confess even to ourselves... our selfishness, our lack of humanity and our need for love and salvation...

Whoever start reading this story, will get deeply attached to the main characters, a kind soul and a troublemaker: the perfect couple. We might think at the beginning that Rei is the one protecting Kira, but when you read this, you realize that Rei is the one asking for redemption.

It's pure love from the beginning to the end.

A deppley intriuging and moving manga. The mangaka deals with some difficult and confronting issues, whilst still keeping the flow of the story. I was unhappy with the flow and the focus on Rei round about volume 5... but then kira soon got her chance in the lime light so i was happy!

I laughed, i cried, i recommend it!

Good, but not perfect

MARS was great, but it felt like it went on too long, and the ending was waaay too abrupt. I liked it and all, but there was just... something... that kept it from being perfect, as far as I'm concerned at least.

I guess i did it backwards and saw the drama first a couple of years ago, but i really enjoyed it then and i was glad to see that it followed the manga entirely. Perhaps it was because at the time i was in the mood that i was able to cope with all the drama this manga involves so i was pretty prepared while reading it. I really like most of the mangaka's work so it was no surprise this was a good read.
