..is the threesome. hella fun manga, best ending ever, if only we could apply this to Ichigo 100%

i really love Youko's character,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
her loyalty to minori is a win win attitude for a manga like this. Not to mention she held it back for years, that mustve been very very nice after they finally did it. i dont really understand their breakup during high school, i hope the Baby Leaf manga will uncover more of their past.

the first point i like about this manga is the art. i really like the way the eyes are drawn somehow, and the expressions of the characters. the lines are also clear and the whole of it is straightforward. the art is really a big plus for me.

i also like all the characters. i usually hate inconsiderate people like youko, but the author manage to pull it off making her look 'cute'. the 'meek' girl is also usually annoying, but here she is very like-able and serene. the moody and angsty main character is also not my usual cup of tea, but here in this manga he just work. and the combination of the characters also work, and you will not feel it is unbelievable for such different people able to be friends and friends-with-benefits.

the plot progression is logical and the ending is one of the best ending out there. i appreciate that no one will be left hanging. i always prefer the tenchi solution in my harems.

and the best part of this manga to me is the musings of the characters, their philosophical take on the situation, and their analysis of their emotions. it make their whole character become more real and developed and more like-able.

a great read.

I really love this manga.
You have to read the short prequel to understand stuff. Not about Youko and Minori. There are quite a few flashbacks to their past. Last chapter of Baby Leaf is about Ichika.
I like the way it ended. I wouldn't be 100% happy any other way.
This is a manga about three "broken" people. Ichika is dependent but can't handle fully committed relationship. Basically a pathological lover on the side. Youko is spontaneous and irrational one love she broke but couldn't let go. Minori was broken by Youko, but he is the most sane one out of the three. He tries to be normal.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If Youko left it would have been really sad, because the chemistry between Youko and both Minori and Ichika was great. And to give up on YoukoXMinori would be really bad. IchikaXMinori wouldn't work without Youko.
If you throw away Ichika she would be alone and broken. Really sad.

I loved the last volume with relationship between Youko and Minori actually moving somewhere.
And why fix what isn't actually broken? They have their own small world, they are happy, Why "fix"it?
Can you imagine Ichika happy as an independent woman? She is pathological but happy in this weird relationship.
Unhappy but normal or happy but broken?
I didn't like Ichika because she was in the way of Minori and Youko and yet she pushed them together. I doubt it would have worked out without her.
And to abandon her to the life of unhappiness? I wouldn't be able to forgive it.

I'm not sure if it's just me but I never feel like i got sucked into it. I didn't find the main character very likable but thats probably because I am a very positive person and reading a story in which the main character is always sad and angry I just can't connect. It's a very gloomy, dark story. But don't get me wrong I was able to follow it and read it through to the end with out getting bored. I just feel as though my expectations were a little different after just finishing a comedy before reading this one. All in all it's a good above average manga. I wouldn't put it at the top of my recommendations but I wouldn't stay away from it either. In the end it really is the type of reader you are.

The manga started off overwhelmingly great, I really liked the characters, I liked the fact that they were all quite broken in their own way. But seriously, what the hell. Lots of comments below say you need to be "mature" to fully enjoy this manga; but I honestly found how it all panned out outright ridiculous. If you really think this is the perfect ending to their situation, I'd say you're wrong.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Okay, they got so dependent on each other that they were a bit of a "package deal", but Ichika should have gotten "fixed" and independent. I found the ending extremely lousy, the last volume extremely frustrating. Oh well, maybe I didn't "understand" everything well enough.

I've been following this for years and just finally finished and I gotta say, I'm disappointed with the ending.

There's an interview where the manga-ka explains where the story came from and it shows at the end. Something about the editor recommending doing a story about a threesome or some such. So disappointing to hear because that's not what you get out of this story throughout most of it. The ending is also rather up in the air. It didn't come off as realistic, just as the writer not bothering.

Still, it's an enjoyable ride, especially in the beginning. It's a bit stretched out, especially with such a disappointing end. But if you think the characters will truely confront themselves with the reality and hard choices that they have to make than just start crying and or laughing now.

There's a part of this story I still remember. Where the characters discuss why they broke up, and I've always liked that because who hasn't perceived a slight just because your friend(or whatever) was busy(or some other reason), and I could relate to when the girl sees her ex having more friends or seemingly not needing her as much. There's a few points like that.

This just makes the ending that much less satisfying. It's so hard when something doesn't end well. It goes back it points a dark cloud over the experience, especially when you're working off your recollections. Still, before that happens, it's good.

This was really good. I've been putting it off for a while because I thought that it would be boring, but it exceeded my expectations. Thankfully. It was different than I thought it would be, but not a bad different. I didn't mind the art like some people did. it was geared towards a more mature audience so it completely fit for me. I did like the story. I thought it was a good change of pace and as I and everyone has said, it was for a more mature audience. Oh and the ending. Seriously. More word!! lol

I liked this. It had a melancholy feel but it ended on an upbeat note. Ambiguous I guess, but positive enough that I can be confident in a happy ever after. That's something I normally hate about harem stuff or love polygons, even when they end with it completely unfinished it's always understood that the protagonist will eventually have to pick one of the girls leaving the rest broken hearted. Happy ending for one, sad for however many extras there are. If I want to be depressed by a story all I have to do is look at the story of real life. Reading fiction is about happy endings to me, and this series delivered imho, without handing it over on a platter. I would have preferred a explicit happy ending, but what we got was fine too.

This one should have "must be a mature adult to read it" on the book.

This is a story of three adults who are all psychologically "broken", finding that other two fill their own shortcomings in some way. If you want a light, predictable romance or smut, or just general romantic stuff, this is the wrong choice. If you want something with significant amount of adult themes (in terms of psychology), this is a great choice.

The downside is, if you're not a grown up, you'll likely not understand what you're missing. This manga more or less requires a certain understanding and experience in life to truly enjoy.

In search of oneself   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

November 14th, 2011, 5:32pm
Like the title of my comment suggests, I see this Manga, regarding the characters, as a story to find oneself. Searching about the feeling within oneself and their place within life, within society and within the heart of those you love. Well the Manga itself starts like a grey wall where the author slowly and carfuly colors it, with some dark and some bright colors, without following a spesific parameter but creating an intense feeling of passion, dispair, love and self-reflection. But enough of this metaphorical chitchat - This manga is unique & deep and I love it for it's unusual plot (not a harem in common matter of sence) having an unique protagonists with their own relationships toward each other. I rly appreciate authors making this kind of seinen romance stories as they are on a whole different level from the standart shoenen ones or the ones only relaying on the nudity part without having any deeper meaning to it. This story will mix you up an let it appear questionable and strange at times but always intense and beautiful.

I recomend this manga to everyone in search of an unique romance story.

Ps: I strongly recommend to read the prequel 'Baby leaf' as it will clear some of the facts of the main stroy afterwards, and yes, it is a great short-story itself.
