I myself was doomed with this manga. I fell in love with the side-ish character Kai, and thus I resigned myself to pain. But anyway, the manga is very touching in some ways and has a lot of morals about how to deal with others and yourself. Personally, I think it could have been shorter and achieved the same effect (though hopefully with a different ending), but if you're a shoujo fan, it's worth a try. If you end up liking Kai, do yourself a favor and judge where your happiness ends and your disappointment begins and stop reading.
The plot is actually not that cliche, and the characters are well-developed. Each character has his/her own struggles (realistic struggles, mind you). They all fight their way through the turmoil and build stronger relationships with each other. I really disliked the coupling, but I read through till the end anyway.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
the word blue really desribes this manga
after ao and riku break up there pretend relationship there is not a single happy moment in the whole story. its just drawn out and depressing especially for a highschool love story.
i hated all for characters. the only reason i kept reading is to see if tako and yoshida would end up together and they didn't. unless you are really into over dramatic over kill dont read this series

I really liked this one .
judging from what other people said about how it started to get boring after volume 2. i disagree .
yes it was very cliche , but the fact that the characters were lovable characters, it was so heartbreaking to see that all of them cried. all of them felt hurt in some way. this manga wasn't only about the battles of love, but the battles of friendship too. this is definately, one of my tops. the last chapter especially , made me cry a lot . even with that happy ending , i still can't help but feel sorry for the supporting characters..

I don't know what to say. It was really kind of depressing. The female lead cried so much, I'm no longer sure why everyone thinks she's a smiling cheery happy girl. And I felt bad for the secondary characters. That was about it.

;__;

I honestly thought this manga would have a better development/ending... I agree with some of the comments made, the story just became annoying.

The main character became insensitive annoying jerks and I actually liked the two supporting characters better; And expected a better ending for them, because neither of them really deserved such an ending. >__>

It was super, until around the end of v4/start v5, where my love for the characters at the beginning turned into annoyance and hate. Everything just went haywire, and it felt like the story went round a huge circle. Melodramatic and frustrating. Reminds me a little of Bokura ga Ita.

Although I have a slight aversion to love triangles, I thought it was done quite well in the first few volumes, so much so for me to carry on reading. But, unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and reading the end wasn't entertaining, but instead painful.

Disappointing

When I started, I just expected so much more. I didn't think that by the end of this manga that I would start disliking the two main leads and feel so passionate about the two supporting characters.

At first, I liked Riku, but as the series progressed, he turned into such an annoying static character for me. The main reason was that he was so indecisive for his feelings between the two girls. This trait continued throughout the whole series. First, Ao made the decision for him. Next, Kiyono made another decision for him. He never decides for himself and that honestly frustrates me.

Ao, on the other hand, just seems stagnant throughout the rest of the series. Her character never really develops after the first three volumes and becomes a little uninteresting. You know she's suffering and that's all you really get to know about her after a while.

No one really liked Kiyono much, but I thought she made sense in a way. She is deeply in love, but she was able to move on. This shows a change in her character and how she matures. Kai undergoes some changes also as you see more of him. Instead of being the cool neutral guy, he falls in love, has desires, gets angry, gets hurt, feels regret, feels pain, and earnestly tries to make the girl he is love with feel the same thing for him.

The supporting characters have so much more development than the main characters that I ended up caring more for them. This could explain why this manga ended on such a sour note for me.

the first two volumes where riku and Ao are together are awesome but the ENTIRE rest of the series is just them misunderstanding each other, not saying they love each other and going out with other people.ITs dragged out bullshit.jesus, just CONFESS already!

The art is nothing amazing really. Its good enough. The plot is nothing unique either, there is plenty of love triangles out there and a few pretend couple mangas out there as well. What made this manga so good? I believe its the characters, mainly the female lead Ao. She is not a very strong female lead who is vastly superior nor is she a weak female heroine always unsure about her decisions. She is kind-hearted and her character really appealed to me. Chapter 10 was the highlight for me really. Her decsion though sad made total sense and well it just showed how strong she is. She does cry but only in situation where any normal human being would cry. There is no love at first sight here. The love happens slowly as if its creeping up on you, you can notice the signs. Even her love rival is good character. some mangas make out the love rival as some nasty, arrogant, beautiful bitch. Not in this manga. The love rival is also good, and kind hearted and tries to supress her feelings for the sake of her friends. She has her own flaws and her own problems. You cannot hate her and that makes this manga much better. The male lead is also good. He is not your typical uber popular boy with fangirls rushing after him. He is a very cheerful person, also kind hearted and looking out for his friends. This manga is definetly a must read just because of the characters. You cannot hate any of them, and their feelings are potrayed in such a way that that it is understandable. They do not make decisions that make you hate them or decsions that are totally unrealistic. The reader is made to understand why these characters are doing what they are doing lol. Also it is decently paced so you won't find it boring.

Honestly I was expecting a stuuuuupid cheesy story after reading half of the first chap
but it turned out to be amazing. All the characters are so likeable. like Kimi ni todoke, the main character makes you really love her. The story line is sweet and a little sad because the " love rival" is just as sweet and unique as the main character.
Anyway I strongly reccomend this to someone looking for a well done shoujo school life romance
