this is like reading a korean melodrama instead of watching.
alot of the same-plot lines and so much DRAMA. some of it got melodramatic enough that i started laughing when i should have been crying. it follows the korean makjang formula so it was pretty predictable.
i think i would have liked it more when i was 13, but then i've always gone in more for action and adventure stories rather than angsty romance, so maybe not.
not a good pick for those who dislike shoujo cliches in general, and melodramatic angst in particular.
i did give it a 4 instead of a 1 because i like some of the art and because it unintentionally made me laugh.

The first two volumes were great, but then it got worse. MCs became beyond idiotic and the series' tone became inconsistent. Emotional stuff became rare and weak.
Highschool period became a bit better, but not for long.

Car crash? Really? I mean, the idea wasn't bad, the execution was lacking.
And then suddenly Kou's death. Seriously? And rejected transplant. And experimental procedure. And really stupid ambiguous ending. Have some guts and do it properly.
Transplant wasn't an option before?

Really disappointing. If you want a manga about mortality, read Ai-Ren. It handles it better.

To be honest at first I was avoiding this manga like the plague because I thought "ah crap It's just gonna be so sad and heavy and i don't know if my heart can handle all that today" but little did I know that it would give me the opposite feeling. This manga was filled with so much Love and hope and the idea that it's all so fragile made it even more beautiful.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I thought Takuma trying to avoid Mayu was very realistic, i mean if it were me I'd probably do the same because truth is, what kind of person would make someone fall in love so hard knowing that in the end they'll only leave the person. But I loved that he chose to love anyway.

I love the characters-- Mayu is such a strong female yet so vulnerable. I love how she never stops believing, how she doesn't deny her feelings but looks at everything straight on, wholeheartedly and openly. I love Takuma's determination to stay alive because of love but most of all I love how much they love each other. This whole manga can be cruel at times especially since you, the reader, want so much for them to be happy and when you see them pray so hard it really hits the heart.
Don't get me wrong, this manga is NOT gloomy or dark or completely just downright emo, it's about hope, growth, strength, acceptance, choices, friendships but most of all it's about Love. A very deep Love that gives you a fluffy yet prickly feeling. It has a great balance of funny scenes, happy scenes and sad scenes.
Don't assume the ending either because well.. it's all about perspective. What YOU choose to believe.

Highly Recommended. Loved every bit of it.

I picked this series up on whim when I was bored and it turned out to be a really great read.
The story has great balance, with scenes that make you burst into tears and scenes that would make you laugh. It's described in a very realistic way which makes you think "yea I think I would do that if I was in that situation". The author also managed to express the character's emotions really well. It makes it hard or nearly impossible to hate any of the characters. However, there are some parts where I feel that the author could have put a bit more detail into it to help make the readers feel all the emotional pain the characters are going through.

Overall it's definitely a good read if you're looking for a shoujo that doesn't have stupid characters, is realistic and has a nice plot. It definitely isn't a light-hearted shoujo that you could just glimpse through. You'll need to read it slowly to feel all the emotion in this manga.

Emotional Rollercoaster

This is one of the most touching mangas I have ever read. The mangaka really has a way of portraying the emotions accurately - from the confusion when the main character, Takuma, was younger to the determination and hope when he grows up. If you are expecting a light read, this is not the manga for you. You're gonna have to take it slow with this to really grasp all the emotions and feelings the mangaka so wonderfully portrayed. Honestly, I think this would suit an older audience 16+, but if you find you enjoy it, then that's awesome.

There are mixed reviews for the ending, but I believe the mangaka ended it splendidly. It did not feel "rushed" to me because the rhythm of the narration went smoothly with each frame. It made me really want to know what exactly happened with Takuma and Mayu but in such a way that I felt that whether he died or not, everything would be okay.

To be honest I usually avoid from Mangas like this because usually they ended having a ridiculous plot full of cliches and plane characters but in this case I'm really glad I gave this one a try n__n. Great story, realistic, emotional and really funny at a times. My only complain was that the end felt rush and ambiguos, I will love a sequel *0*. In my opinion one of the best shoujo mangas ever.

Okay, I'm not crying nor are my tear glands are connected to the ocean,but... I loved it!!!! I've always loved a good tragedy, but I didn't quite want anything tragic to happen. That's how much the author involved me in the story. The ending was unclear so that gave me the freedom to create my own.

Kou is no longer brain dead, and married his girlfriend. Takuma and Mayu are married. Kou's brother and Mayu's friend are also together. Now the story continues with a love triangle surrounding the children.

To be honest, I've got a teary eye while reading several mangas. But there are only 3 that had seriously made me cry from the bottom of my heart: Full Moon wo Sagashite, Fruits Basket and Boku Kimi. Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu felt realistic throughout the whole series. The romance was extremely beautiful between Mayu and Takuma.

SPOILERS: I had kept swallowing my tears throughout the whole series, until Kou collapsed and "died". That broke me into pieces. I couldn't stop crying. Then it was Takuma's letter to Mayu before the surgery that had me crying so much. I was so sure that he was going to die. But then the last page turned the tears of agony into the ones of happiness and relief.

The best thing about the manga was the balance. It was tragic, it tore my heart into pieces. But it also made me laugh so hard. Funny and happy moments they all balanced it so well. Oh god, this is my new favourite manga!
