I've known about this manga for a long time, but never read it because I tend to hate fantasy mangas. But, I finally decided to try it since it's so popular. The first 2 volumes are a bit dated and silly. The manga was a little drawn out in places, and sometimes I wondered if certain events in the story were not necessary to the main plot. The artwork may not be the greatest, (especially due to its 80s/early 90s look) but it improves greatly by the end of the series. Overall, though, the plot was one of the most well constructed and well played out I have ever read in a manga. The story pulled me in to the extent that I had a hard time putting the manga down. I even cried a few times. Don't let its fantasy/sci-fi genre deter you, this is an amazing work.
this manga is a worth reading!!its so good...but r this manga really end in vol 21? i read it from vol1-12..and seems its end already..
A classic that will stir up anyone's emotion
Don't let the artwork turn you off. I was wondering if it was really good when I heard people sung praises about this manga. So I decided to try it out and it was GOOD!! The beginning art was very old art (as you can see), but it improved by the time it reached the middle and the storyline doesn't help 'cause it made me fell in love with the manga even more.
The story is about your typical a 13-year-old student, Alice, who lives nearby a 7-year old young neighbor Rin. Rin always tease Alice whenever he sees her she hates it. At school, she stumbled upon the two boys, which she had a misunderstanding of the relationship and fled. Later on, she met them again when she was at the zoo with Rin, whom she was asked to babysit for the day. As the two guys cleared up the misunderstanding, it turns out that they both have the same dreams. They even say that they have a deja-vu with Alice. Back at home, Rin angrily said he also have a deja-vu with Alice and asked if she was going to marry one of the boys. Testing to see if Rin was jealous, she said yes and in response, Rin dropped what they bought earlier at the zoo from the balcony. She then slaps him, which lead to him to tip over and fell off the balcony. From there,the story starts to unfold upon Rin's mysterious power and the mystery of 7 people's past; their connections and relationships; the dark truth; and the ending twists that shocks all of them.
The overwhelming emotions I had when reading this manga was powerful enough to make me semi-cry. The character development is strong and slowly we learn about the 7 reincarnated's past and the truth of what really happen. The story helps take it further with its twists as it uncovers the truths.
I really enjoyed this series and I glad I picked it up. It should be a classic that everyone should try reading and see how touching this manga series could be.
One of the best
This is one of the best mangas I've ever read (and I've read a lot and there are specific reasons for that: firstly - it's organized, no chaos, no meaningless chapters and epizodes secondly - characters - they are originall and not boring, they act instead of dwelling on and on thirdly - concept, plot doesn't have weak points forthly - length - it's perfect, it's not too long and not too short, and everything is explained fifthly - when you start you have to end it, when you leave it in the middle its pointless to even begin
great work. I feel like this is so similar to Kaguya Hime (one manga I love dearly as well). U might want to check it out if you love PSME
This manga is so good. Some of the plot can be draggy at times. Or more like scientific explainations, I always skim through those, they are so long. But overall I don't think anything big hinders the plot and a lot of things are cleared up at the end.
I really liked the parts where they showed the childhood of Mokuren and Shion. It's incredibly sad. The OVA was pretty good too, although they finished halfway (or less) of the manga. I didn't mind. The music was really good.
hmm.. i don't understand some things... i really love this series alot but my mom doesn't like it at all.. ? hmm.. well i mean yeah oppinions but dude.. how can she not like it that much...?
story line very good. someparts really long first 3-4 volume seems boring then its getting better and better
It leaves a warm felling, you feel full and satisfied, what it tells, how it tells it, and you can't help but love it in the end. It leaves you a happy feling
lol, i wonder if thats even understandable, but well pretty much everything of how wonderfull this is has already been said, lol.
Now, for those (and i've seen theres quite a lot them) that stoped reading it, well i can of agree i hated arisu and i hated rin, i hated gyokuran (i really really hated him) i hated shuu, well i've hated almost every main character at some point, yet, i've come to be fond of them, they're just so human that you can't help it, they have their flaws and ups and downs and well. I can say just as a lot of you, i almost stoped was it not for the intriging plot lol, but by the end, you just come to love them all so, you don't really have to worry, unless you like perfect characters, cause theres none in here lol.

An intense psychological romance story, the sci-fi/fantasy parts are really engaging once you get into it and the characters are very vivid. Admittedly the first few volumes were of a lower quality than the rest, I found it difficult to relate to the main character and the whole thing just didn't really interest me, so I stopped reading the first time, but something of it stuck with me and I went back to read the rest. The main character, despite being a crybaby, is really strong and I ended up liking her a lot. The climax is really great, action and angst and love all mixed in there, there are some really great twists and something of the message behind it will definitely stick with you. I would recommend it to anyone, even those who don't normally read shoujo but appreciate sci-fi and psychological themes. Just persevere if you're finding the first few volumes a bit rocky and I guarantee you will find something worth your time.
