Wish they Author took their time to develop the characters relationship more.
love the Art . Love the story concept. They looked so lovely.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the beginning was just a little confusing to me because the story made it seem she WAS in fact supposed to die or else why would he show up? Then they we kept together by this chain by the story was kind of rushed that it all seemed like a blur.. Some filler story got put into it that doesn't really matter to the main story all that much. And the issues were not really that important.. She makes a simple wish. They are in love all is well

This Manga was VERY cute with attractive characters. Especially the Male and Female lead. Now in terms of the plot line I thought it was very original and creative and not to mention 'sexy' ( I mean come on how can you not love two lovers being chained together) But it could have been more widely explored. Such as some other evil force comes and trys to make Miku and Sei's life a living hell or something that would have made the plot more exciting. But in all it was mainly just fluff. My only qualms about it is that I wish it was bit more darker than it lead you on to be. Such as actually witnessing the deaths of some of these people, and maybe even Miku performing a thanatos lover on someone. Also I think Sei's character could have been more 'dark' as well, I mean he works in the UNDERWORLD for peet's sake atleast show some devilish qualities..Maybe a bit more possessive of Miku and more hardcore when it came to taking souls. 'sigh' But alas it was just sweet and comical with slight foreboding. I recommend reading this if your into the whole shinigami thing of course or have a fetish for I suppose slighty girlish men(bishies) and want to read a romance that involves death and stuff, without all the sex and actual death happening.

It was okay, but it was too fast paced (ex. pg 1: I love you/ pg 2: school/ pg 3: I love you)... The artwork took some getting used to as well... And the plot was nothing special. I recommend this series to those who have nothing else to do and are bored...

I love this manga. i reallyyy love this manga. I thought the storyline was interesting. I love the creativity Miku had in painting nails and i can't lie....I Reallyyy love Sei smile wink grin He was sweet, mysterious, even shy and had his own insecurities as an Shinigami. My heart ached when...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Not long after Miku realized she loved Sei, she, in an way, allowed him to "Be With" someone she knew as an last wish before she passed away.
I didn't really know what to make of it. But

i am happy she stay with Sei in the end.<3

Highly recommended!

Where did the character development go? Maybe because it was to fast paced and there was not enough room to give them depth. Whatever the reason the story line could have been better. The art was good.

This series was excellent, however way too short. I feel it should have been much longer and that way the story line could be flushed out more and have more in it. Very cute characters and story though smile

ughh the cute shoujo manga. the art was good though, as destati said, sugary. the story was pointless and the ending was too flat. but compared to other shoujo mangas, this one was actually fine because i could actually stand reading it (though i skipped right to ch.10). not for those who cannot stand sugary sweety mangas.

A nice, warm, fuzzy feeling. I much enjoyed this romance.
Even if the love and devotion seemed too overwhelming, I guess that's the way it's meant to be.
I know of another manga that deals with Shinigami, Full Moon Wo Sagashite, but they both have different story plots. This is a one of it's kind manga. *nods matter of factly*

The series is too fast paced. There's almost no character development. Even in the first chapter, the story just states that the girl likes the shinigami. Everything just feels forced and after a few chapters I realized that I didn't care about what happens to any of the characters, so I dropped it.
