From: Easy Going Scans

Yuan Ge, a director at an advertising firm, is interrupted in the midst of a meeting with the news that his long-estranged wife has passed away. He barely finds time to grieve for her, a woman he had long since ceased to love. Several days later, he is struck by the vision of a young girl on a subway bus, but she disappears the minute he looks away.

This is a story of lost love, and of one man's personal journey.

Needs more love   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

The manhwa deals with a successful salaryman coming in terms with his long-estranged wife's untimely death. Do not enter into this expecting a romance and new love. It explores the fickleness of the human heart. In search of big and better we often lose sight of what is actually important, and that is the main theme of the story.

Once Again's charm doesn't lie in its plot, which was not undecipherable to a veteran reader like me, but in its melancholy narration and the author's execution. The characters in the story are limited, however they are excellently portrayed in a manner in which you can actually empathise with them.

The art is much, much better than those of most manhwa. So don?t be discouraged by it.

The manhwa is pretty short and worth giving a shot. Definitely read this if you are a masochist and want to shed some tears and bigrazz

An emotional read that tears hearts apart   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

For such a short manhua it has a very emotional and well thought out story. Without giving much away about the manhua, it deals with how a workaholic man whose wife has recently died deals with her absence. The cast, while small, is developed well and each of their actions and thoughts is genuine and believable. This is turn, allows the author to weave a complex and emotional tale that will pierce your heart with melancholy and heartache. Most people will likely be disappointed with the ending since it does not have a usual happy ending that comes with finding love. It is perhaps better that this story does not have the usual happy ending since the emotions that the author deftly creates within our hearts would be diminished. This is not a story of finding love in something new and finding happiness with it. Instead, it is a story of remembering a forgotten love one once had for someone and the regret that comes with the discovery of the reason why the love was lost or forgotten with never having the chance to rectify that mistake with that dear someone. As with many masterpieces it is a story of love, regret and forgiveness. My only regret with this story is that it will most likely never become a well-known or popular read which is a shame, since it is a beautiful story that masterfully breaks your heart asunder and leaves you wanting more.

turns out no happy ending and tht he was slowly hallucinating and finally coming to realize his loss AND his faults for the cause if not just lack of preventative methods for the loss

I read first chapter with mixed filing but with more of it it started to make sense. Almost all manga are about happy ending but not this one. Thers not much manga about job/private life so i you wana find something new this manhua this is very good choice for you. Its sad history but it make you rethink about your life.

Loving it so far!!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Maybe it's abit premature of me to be giving it a rating since the manhua has yet to end! But it's been so splendidly written that I feel obliged to at least try to bolster its appeal to people. I would definitely love to see this work receiving more recognition from others.

You can tell from the title and blurb that this story will be one of self-growth and of great characterisation. The story is -surprisingly- seen in the perspective of the husband who after dealing with his wife's death rather indifferently finds himself fascinated (and infatuated) with a girl he sees on the subway.

The girl isn't simply an ordinary high school girl and when he discovers who she is and realises the significance of her existence, he re-evaluates his own life which you see in flashbacks.

These are my ratings!
Characterisation - 10 (an ambitious, power-hungry guy goes on a trip down memory lane to regain some of his compassion back)
Plotline - 10 (haven't come across a story like this before, so it's abit intriguing.. I'm open up for anymore suggestions if people know of anything similar to this because I'm loving it so far!!)
Artwork - 10 (can't really fault it.. the artwork is clean, and not too intricately detailed)

This is a really good manhua but why is it only one volume!!! And they didn't even warn me it was a tragedy. TT______TT This is a real tear-jerker for me. I was hoping it was some fantasy/supernatural genre where

he was given another chance to go back to the past and re-patch the love he and his wife once had (hence the title) but it actually ended with him in regret! so sad. so really sad. But so good. People should really give this a read. I only gave it a 9/10 because of the ending. Hopefully the author picks it up again to do a second season of it? =/
