okay, not that bad
At first this series started out as interesting, you know, when takeru was bullying her and stuff. Then in the middle it got a little boring. However the twists and turns made it very interesting and forced me to finish the entire thing in a day. The ending was nice. I am happy, everyone's happy. Typical, but satisfactory. Everyone loves happy endings, afterall. I would recommend this to people who like a simple story, but just get past the first few volumes. Read on!!
It was just exhausting to me. Art: Definitely not my thing. As they say Art is in the eye of beholder, well my beholding eye didn't like the art at all. Characters: Annoying. Obtuse. Stupid. The only character I liked was Haru. There is the strong silent type and then there is the egoistical, egomaniacle, violent a-hole type. It doesn't mean that you belong to the first group if you just don't talk and be the main character. And if you keep getting violent, doing only stuff what you think is right without talking to anybody it rather means you belong to the 2nd one. See Takeru. I get the softhearted dudette do right type of shoujo heroin. But maaaaaaaaaaaaaan! If you keep crying every effing single time it gets just very annoying. I am fairly certain that after the middle, btw after she said for the umpteenth time, i am going to get stronger, she started crying and then for almost an entire volume she didn't stop. Enough already!!! Plot: The summary of the plot reads well on the paper. But it was really exhausting to get through in the manga. At one point I just wanted scream enouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggghhhh! That's when I stopped reading. But like I said at the beginning, Art is in the eye of the beholder and tastes differ. I do usually like strong silent types, the bad boys that are actually good boys. And the heroins that bring them out of the closet but this couple was just not it. He was too egoistic and she neeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvverrr stopped crying for Pete's sake!

Primer manga extenso, muy bueno!!
Okay.... Es 1999, sé que algunos tags de este manga ya se han visto, pero miren el año, los shoujos escolares enfocando en público femenino están creciendo. Además de agregar que es el primer proyecto de serie manga(con muchos tomos) de esta mangaka. La gráfica es adorable, muy original y hecha a su manera. La primera sinopsis que leí, es pésima solo se basa en el primer capítulo, da la impresión de que Takeru es un 'chico malo'. Los factores de 'visual kei' en muchas de las portadas me hicieron amarlo más, hubieron partes muy divertidas. Hubiese amado que este manga sea más largo. Quizás me pareció que en ciertos tomos el manga se apoyó fuertemente en alguna dificultad que tenga la pareja, sé que debe haber sido duro Takanashi <3

Después de la despedida de la ex-prometida de Takeru, sintió que la historia dio un gran paso... No era cualquiera... La madre de Takeru lo necesitaba mucho a él, el viaje, la despedida... Todo eso sería un gran roca para que la relación de los dos. No creo que haya acabado mal... Me hubiese gustado que sea más largo, soy muy egoísta. Pero creo que fue un final justo y adorable
Takanashi, I love youuu!... A Takeru también u.u'

the whole point of a manga is the art and plot yes.. we know... i can go with the horrible art sometimes but the plot must be good. but omg this one killed me i tried to ignore it but its so dawm annoying.. okay dont judge base on art . i stopped at chapter 20 and jumped to the finale it was dragging getting boring and i saw the drama. sorry for the bad critique but its my opinion..wasted my dawm time reading this. it kinda felt like torture
It was fine, I just dislike the roundabout ambiguous way Takeru expresses himself. It becomes annoying sometimes. It's a self righteous tough love that is actually useless, just say things clearly damn it -__-

I was annoyed by the fact that he decided to leave without even discussing it with her and then suddenly everyone's happy. Damn! 5 years, really? Usually when you really love someone, you want to be with them. It was just too easy for him to go away and be ok with the separation. Then Boom! happy end *Rolls Eyes*
Heart nearly exploded <3
The ending was perfect. Yes, the art isn't that great at first, but it improves A LOT. Like, looking between the earlier chapters and the last chapter, you can't believe it's by the same artist. It doesn't change enough that you don't recognize them, though, just enough that they're more beautiful and cleaner. It's a great story, and my heart was so full at the end that it almost hurt. I was THAT satisfied with this story. It's great, beautiful, bittersweet, and all-around one of my favorite manga.
Wow--what world is this? Where trouble quickly dissolves into rainbows?
The art is great! I especially liked the 90s fashion spread splash pages where the characters were dressed to the nines. The story is captivatingly told, but entirely too pure. Innocent from beginning to end. And that includes after they become 'adults.' So points off for unnaturally sweet unreality and blissed out endings. But I still kinda liked it--in a guilty sort of way. It does have a moment of brilliance when the main protagonist realizes getting hurt is part of getting happy. But mostly just too. Innocent.
I tried, really, to get over the MC's cross-eyed facial expressions. I think the mangaka was going for cute, insecure and nervous. It irritated me. I did read some of the comments about the art being a bit rough and normally, I can deal with it. But the cross-eyed protagonist isn't my thing. Story-wise (as far as I was able to read up to) it wouldn't step into the boundaries of uniqueness, but was something I could've kept reading. Too bad.
The story was so wonderful. The characters were memorable. I agree with some of the other users that this manga seems a bit like Marmalade Boy but a bit more enjoyable. The art in the beginning was a tad bad but as the story progressed so did the mangaka's art.

The ending told in Hikaru's point of view was a cute suprise.
And the last picture made me extremely happy. I had already watched the Taiwanese drama and was greatly happy with it. After reading the manga that inspired the drama, it made me want to watch the drama again for the 5th time. So I will.
Takeru is an Ass

That piece of human filth left her sad and alone for 5 years. Too bad Kayano couldn't have found someone else in order to make him suffer.
