Description
From JShoujo Scans

After a very public (and humiliating) break-up with her last boyfriend, things couldn't get any worse for 18 year old Emiko. Things start looking up however, when a good-looking guy stops her in the middle of the street to offer her tickets to an upcoming rock concert.

As it turns out, he's just one of three brothers from the Kanita family: Gaku - 18, Youji - 19, and Masaki - 23. A chance encounter with his older brother, Youji, leads to a whirlwind romance. He's impulsive, hot-headed, and even a bit self-centered, but she finds his frankness, though brutal at times, refreshing and she ends up falling for him....HARD.

An unexpected turn comes her way however when it's revealed that Youji and Yuri, a close friend of hers from back in middle school, knew each other long before she met Youji. They don't seem to get along at all----what happened between them?

Also Contains One-Shot:
I'm Going to Become That Star

Sanshiro, a happy-go-lucky 17 year old, gets a serious head injury that lands him in a coma after he jumps into the road to save a girl from an oncoming car! During his comatose state, he's told by a mysterious being (aka his pet turtle that died ages ago) that the girl he saved is actually the reincarnated form of the lover he had to part with in his previous life! Well, that's great and all, but the reincarnated form of his lover turns out to be...a 9 year old girl?!

I was glad they got back together in the end. I understand where the girl is coming from but it's not really the guy's fault that he had a one night stand with the other girl because that happened before they met. The thing is it's the guy's brother's girl. That's where the guy becomes an ass, and the friend being a slut. It's an awkward situation when things becomes like that.
The story is quite straightforward for shoujo romance.The tensions did draw me in when they were present. Likewise, I had few laughs in some panels. Sensei is capable of bringing a seemingly simple rapport between characters into something to be amused about.

I could go on and on,why this story and IKUEMI Ryo herself are sooo great,but in a nutshell: she just pulls off that thing when you read the manga, that you actually have to think about the characters emotions and actions,why are they looking like that now,or why does that scene come up when it has no relation to the current scene etc. and finally,later or at the end,the picture comes together.It's a great feeling,and after you read hundreds of superficial manga,with the same boring and melodramatic clichés,you kinda know what I'm talking about,and feel happy to find diamonds like these.

I liked the characters a lot,except Yuri,whom I couldn't relate to,she wasnt supposed to be an antagonist though,but something was off by her (maybe it's the fact that she resembled a really irritating character from Bokura ga ita with the same name on top of that biggrin scary...).

As the previous commenter said,the artwork might put you off,but it WAS published 1996,so what can we expect? Though i think it's pretty good,and somehow i love that they look more human than those over-the-top-too-beautiful-big-eyed characters from other manga. Well,the story itself makes up for it,even if you dont like it. wink

So do read it,though maybe you have to reach a certain age to enjoy something like this,as previously said,it's kinda josei,and less shoujo.

I really enjoyed this. The story is slow and well paced but you could feel the tension building in the background. A little inconsistency here and a little awkwardness there and you know ... you just know something is not quite right. This is the way drama is meant to be.

The protagonists are quite young so that's the reason this is still considered shoujo - otherwise, i'd actually have thought it's more suited to a josei category. The characters are all young and naive and caught in the trappings of youth. I know some people out there will feel a bit put off about a heroine who is so as utterly in love as she is with the main guy - but i feel it's warranted in this situation. You have this naive young girl who's really sheltered and then she meets this cool and collected artist type and BAM! The mangaka makes it really believable though and i was completely drawn in by the depth and simultaneously, the shallowness of her emotions. She loves him with this intensity that i don't think she quite understands herself - and then you throw in his past history and her own insecurities and you've got a helluva lot of angst.

I also enjoy the artwork a lot. It's a bit old i suppose but it's a lot better than a lot of the new stuff out there. Having said that though, the two older brothers are pretty dreamy =)

It's not been completely scanlated yet and i've only read the first half but i have high expectations that, like her other works, the mangaka will follow this through.
