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.
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.
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..
The deepness of the humans, read it and appreciate the knowledge that has within it
2 days...2 intensive days... and 12 volumes later.. i've finished it... FINALLY! i can't say i didn't foresee the ending, or that it was a horrible one either...cause it was just .. right for the story... But what i do can say, is that this one it's by FAR the longest manga that i've EVER read!, and that i don't regret have spend time reading it... It's complex.. yeah... Repetitive... yeah... extreeeemly long.. yeah! Would i read it again?.......without even thinking about it ... If u have the time u would realize all that this story has to offer, and the multiples atempts to understand how the heart or even the mind of humans works... cause this is just a story about humans trying to understand humans... is as simple and profound as that...

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
story line very good. someparts really long first 3-4 volume seems boring then its getting better and better
One of my all-time favourites, I don't need to go into too much detail but this manga will keep you reading due to the mystery of the past lives, and the destructive personality of Rin. Super involved, great characters, romance and moral premises, love love love. Could read it over and over.
Complex characters, interesting struggle. This is worth reading.
The main characters, Mokuren and Shion, are strongly portrayed. The author shows why they do what they do. At first readers are kept in the dark along with the side characters. Slowly the actions of the characters all make sense to the reader as newer chapters reveal the different sides. Even when intentions are clear to the reader, characters in the story are still judging other characters. It's more complex than an unjustified hate group in a story, like the typical gang of jealous girls, which actually appeared in this story (Mangaka handled this pretty well but could have done better). The mangaka clearly justifies why characters dislike or feel threatened by another and thus act out on what they believe.
By revealing the motives of the characters the way the mangaka did, the characters become complex and have substance as a person.The mangaka doesn't tell you who the person is, like in most overly simple characters in shoujo and shounen genre. because of this I became fond of Shion, Mokuren, and Rin. I can't say the same for Alice since her portrayal remained pretty weak, but she was amusing. Maybe the author found no reason to explore her fully since the story was more about the past and the struggle Rin has because of the past.
Let me say this, I truly and honestly really loved this series. With that being said, there were parts of the manga I could have done without. I thought that the addition of some of the human characters in the Present were unnecessary. Of course I realize they were probably added because the main characters and some of the supporting had their limits. But it was incredibly boring to read those parts, but obviously I managed.
It was a shame that more of the past was not explained. It just felt that there were holes missing to the overall story and the plot was not planned out very well. Though, there were gut wrenching parts that made me love this series.
I've noticed the progression of artwork from Please Save My Earth to Global Garden to Boku wo Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari (PSME 2). The artwork is fantastic in PSME, but for some reason the artwork in GG and PSME 2 cannot compare. Maybe she just had some great assistants to help her along the way. Anyways, I put off this series for so long because I'm not into manga that's about teenagers anymore. And I seriously regret not reading this years earlier.
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
