Propogates a horrible misconception   
Rating: 2.0 / 10.0

I initially enjoyed reading this series since it was a fun read. However now, I'm only left feeling disturbed by how Aoki Kotomi distributes her misconceptions about organ donation via her manga. It's one thing for the teenage protagonists to misunderstand brain death, however for a doctor to make the same error can only be blamed upon the author's biased and misconceived notions against organ donations.

Brain death is the permanent termination of all brain activity and thus is legally valid as a determinant of death. When there is a complete absence of any brain activity over a span of time, the complex brain functionality required to cry from emotional pain (I'm assuming emotional pain due to the lack of any mentioned physical pain reflexes) as described by the doctor in this manga is impossible. Yet he never questions a misdiagnosis and merely accepts that the brain is alive during brain death. By having all the main characters supportive of this stance with the doctor as the only authority and no opposition refuting this claim, the contradiction that the brain is simultaneously alive and dead in all instances of brain death simply becomes the manga's truth.

I also find it somewhat disturbing that despite the donor and his family having consented to donating, other characters would work towards convincing the family to oppose the donor's wishes. Organ donations are already so scarce in Japan due to the lack of donors. Aoki didn't need to further proliferate such antagonism towards signing the donation card with her manga by providing such erroneous reasoning.

2 years ago i found an article, Aoki Kotomi said that the planned ending is sad ending (the movie) but it changed because of her fans begged her. Dont worry about the black frame at the ending because she use it for night scene (see other chapters) thanks to the moon. so, his dream came true.

It's amazing... The art is good, and I just love how the story's shown from the guy's perspective. Everything was so realistic. I loved how the story began when they were little, but didn't skip straight to the present day after a chapter or two. This manga showed the characters grow up and changed. Although I typically dislike the "let's make each other jealous" thing, I think it really worked for this manga. Before the guy learned that he was going to die before he reached 20, they were very honest about their feelings. It was really quite cool how Mayu declared to her entire class that she was going to marry Takuma. The characters in this manga are very elaborate. Mayu isn't one of those girls that are supposed to be strongheaded but aren't. She's supposed to be strongheaded, smart, stuck-up, and not a total ditz, and the author totally nailed it for her. Dammit, I hope the guy lives... I'm such a sucker for happy endings (Screw the bitter-sweet crap).

In response to cowslaves comment: Just to clarify, this manga is NOTHING like Haou Airen. In my opinion, Haou Airen was more of unrealistically screwing the girl (Yay, a f*** festival) than going through realistic problems in life. And while they're both tragic, the Boku no Hatsukoi is much sweeter.

Emotional and realistic

That's something you can't often say about shoujo manga. I'm very sure it'll end with his death, because of what he thought at the end of the first chapter, when they promised to marry each other when they turn 20.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
"I made the worst promise ever. A promise I wouldn't be able to keep."

At the same time her father said something about "not being able to cure him with the current technology". Which means maybe he'll be able to cure him later on...

Want to read it *-*

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.

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.

Truly wonderful series

this is probably one of the best romance series that i am currently reading - the flashbacks and encounters between mayu and takuma are really touching and takuma's conflicting feelings and actions really cause you to empathise with him. for a while i wasn't sure whether i was going to continue with this series because i just couldnt stand it if this turns out to be a tragedy, as it's seemingly going to be, but regardless of how it's going to end, this is a superb romance manga and i would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has a soft spot for them.

This is one of the best ones in my personal opinion. I've read heaps of series but most seem to lack depth. I enjoyed this series more than most mainstream stuff because at the very least, it managed to make me believe in their love for each other. Admittedly there are times when they are selfish, rash, or make you want to shake them, but at the same time, if they didnít act like that out of desperation for Takumaís life, it wouldnít make sense in context with their situation. I canít say I absolutely love either of them, but I certainly donít dislike them either. They are flawed and human, and perhaps it drives readers up the wall once in a while but I believe itís mostly due to their circumstances. Iím just satisfied that theyíre not the shallow, brainless types I usually see because in this particular manga, I care more about the overall storytelling than the characters themselves. I just really love the way the mangaka leads us through the story with Takumaís monologues and the smart use of paneling. The tone is very down-to-earth and full of heartfelt feelings without coming across as cheesy. Iíve dropped series upon series that tried to be emotional but just made me cringe from the cheesiness. Obviously this is a sad story, so there are parts that may be heart wrenching, but also parts that are bittersweet or comical. The key is that it is well balanced. The balance is something most artists fail to grasp, but I think Aoki-sensei did an excellent job until the end. On another note, I am personally not a medical student so I donít know how realistic the technicalities are, but Iím just reviewing about the story of Takuma and Mayu trying to fight fate. I think it was refreshing and well-developed. Honestly, you donít have to read much (just one chapter will be enough) to see if you like it or not because they are each pretty representative of the series as a whole. I say definitely try it out if youíre not too prone to tears.
