Truly awful

A genuine waste of time. A mess of misunderstandings, dragged out plot, bad characters making bad decisions, and enough unnecessary drama to shame shoujo mangas. Kouji Seo's mangas are usually terrible but this is the lowest he has gone.

I will keep this simple, its a romance manga of a guy who is in love, lives far from his girlfriend and she suddenly stops talking to him, not responding to his messages. He decides to travels to Tokyo where she is only to find out she is dating someone else. I will tell you that her new relationship something seems odd without giving any spoilers. To start with the series you could watch the anime first then continue with the manga. Also the MC isn't some indecisive lead like most romance manga, nothing to worry about.

The series is highly underrated because of the main character and a choice he makes dumping the girl he was with only to follow his true feelings, but this happens in the first quarter of the manga and the manga just gets better and better from that point. Read the manga and you will be drawn in, don't listen to others and don't look at the rating.

Another bonus is this manga is complete with marriage... not a spoiler! just read the tags. smile

Wrong heroine...

If the story would have had another heroine.. OTL There were a bunch of better girls, I waited until the end to read it only to find, since volume one, a disappointing female lead. More than 10 or 15 girls and 0 infidelity... Where's the reality in that?

Just read yongzhi93's review   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

First of all, yongzhi93's review is incredibly on point.

Some points I'd like to emphasize:
1. This manga is not so much focused on the plot, so many have complained that it's the normal predictable stuff.
2. Despite that, the charm of this series comes from the characters and their growth. I would definitely say that all of the characters felt very real when it came to major decisions. I gotta say that anyone who disagrees with this point is not in touch with reality. That said, some situations that arise and maybe some side characters are not the most realistic.
3. Another source of negative reviews for this series stems from
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the main character choosing his ex over his current girlfriend of 1.5 years. It's as if all of these reviewers don't understand that it's possible, not to mention common in real life, to have romantic feelings for more than one person. Here the main character makes the honest decision to break up with Asuka because he truly has stronger feelings for the Yuzuki. It's much more horrible to Asuka to stay together if he loves someone else more.
Many reviewers disagreed with this decision in particular and have rated this series very negatively. I'd just have to say that not only do I feel that the main character made the right decision here, I also feel that just because the main character does something wrong or stupid does not make the manga itself bad. Not only that, I feel like there was enough leadup to this moment where it should not have been that huge a shock.
5. This manga has many very touching moments, not related to the core romance. This is definitely one of the strong points as the series goes on.
6. One of the main flaws with this series is the number of girls falling for the main character. It's kind of ridiculous. This gets better towards the end as the girls find other guys, but for a majority of the series it feels like everyone's in love with the main character.

too long....predictable..self deprecating

it was rather good in the beginning...amazing in potential in fact..... then..... it slowly went to hell
in the name of "drama" stupid predictable crap patterns happening left and right.... bringing shallow "depth" and "growth"....

serously...i dont mind long fact in many cases i love them... but this seemed milked...not just ecchi fanservice wise...but other types of fanservice in terms of events or type of specific development that is not tht necessary to move along the plot in a creatively good direction.....

seriously this should have finished up in the 4-5th volume...thats the amout of good material is in there and it would be a 9 or 10 even..... but..... man.... even if it should have been killed by the mangaka or the publisher by 12.....and even that would have been better than how i see it now....

A Town Where You Live...

Perhaps, this story may have surpassed Suzuka in the harem stats, however, Suzuka improves the importance of romance within the story's growth. Nevertheless, Kimi No Iru Machi never ceases to interest and captivate in so many ways from my point of view. The story was just a tad long, which was a bit unnecessary at times. But, this does deserve a ten, regardless.

Decent, but frustrating

Art is good, characters and story is believable. I gave it a go till 119, and then just stopped though. Why? Because the way some of the main guys/girls act is so frustrating, its making me rawr. Seriously.

There are a lot of different kind of people out there, so if it seems that everyone is the same, it might be a result of not knowing someone well enough. So noone is bound to behave according to someone's expectations just because his expierence is limited and mind - closed. With that being said: characters and their lives in this manga are believable; same goes for situations they are in. The art is decent as well.
Good, above average, romance manga.If you believe in romance, that is. wink

Excellent drama and romance   
Rating: N/A

Probably would be the best shounen romance I've read yet, if the ending can close properly.
While it's not the most innovative in terms of plot or characters and it does use many clichés, the personalities are exquisitely developed.
Be warned though, it'll be a rollercoaster of emotions with Haruto, the MC.
Admittedly the beginning can turn a lot of readers off. I had to give it a second chance myself because the MC seemed so unrealistically pathetic. The start aside, the story progresses at a leisurely pace going from the troubles of Highschool to the working reality. Many of the twists and relationships are predictable, but some can truly leave you breathless. The artwork is very good, the tact in the sexual aspects is surprisingly respectful, the story is fine and a joy to read.

By the same mangaka who did Suzuka (with a lot less cringe imo), relationships are built, broken and reconstructed in an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable manner.

The manga I'm sad about.   
Rating: 6.7 / 10.0

Kimi no Iru Machi is the manga I'm sad about. It used to be very good, exciting and intriguing manga, yet Kouji Seo did it wrong, making the manga worse, much worse than it first was. This is sad.

To be exact, Kouji did a very good job from chapter 1 to around 164; those contain drama, tears, love, romance, all you can ask for from a romance manga for boys. But suddenly, it was very obvious that he ran out of ideas, and therefore ended up making the story become a bad manga--boring and full of Fan Service scenes.

Now that the manga is ended, I should probably talk about its end. The final arc is not bad, just not good. It is not all emotionally beautiful as it could have been, but it still is, a little. I'm starting the next series from the author, Fuuka, now with the highest hope that it would be better, although I currently see nothing but badly inserted Fan Service stuffs from it.

The series would get a 8.5 at the very least if Kouji ended it earlier in a beautiful way. Such a big disappointment from the author of Suzuka, the story of Kimi no Iru Machi used to be even better than that of Suzuka.
