I thought the guy was really insane and their relationship would involve violence since he was described as mentally unstable..I was waiting for some"super-downpoint" of their being apart or so...HOWEVER..I like him being that 'pervy'...artfully done and she reciprocated him that well without looking like dense heroine.

Love love love it. It was so sexy and heart pacing. A part of you felt the moment, I live for these kind of manga's. The couple is so fragile, but its not exactly a normal romance its not pure or fluffy puffs of stars and hearts which you'd expect from other age-gap shoujo's. Highly recomended!

I would like to say not to condemn the main character for being weird and stuff or creepy..i got this quote from i drama which I've watched not to long ago "He's an artist so he has the right to be eccentric.." I think it's the adjective that suits him best..

For me this is a very good read..i can feel how fragile the characters and the selfishness because of love..wanting to trap them in your world but at the same time, thinking that sunshine is best for her etc...

and really i don't find it perverted at all..well wanting to touch comes with love and so on

i would totally recommend it!! i hope i expressed my feelings well too smile)

I came across this when I was flipping through the related section of a manga I was reading and I was astounded. The deep emotions and the utter inner turmoil just rocked me to the core. The couple themselves were sweet and adorable but with the added in deepness, it just made every action they did more meaningful. The summary doesn't give the manga enough justice, seriously. ^^

This manga is pretty intense. It's not disgusting or disturbing but it's very very deep.. it definitely goes beyond the "simple love" that other shoujo's have but it's what makes it different. I don't really know what else to say... it had a sense of fragility which made it so beautiful and it has a really deep meaning to it so I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking for a romance that goes beyond the typical shoujo stuff.

good growth!

i really liked the character growth; it was even more impressive because there wasn't much "outside" drama to build or tear their relationship, it was all internal and between the two of them. it was an intense love, and i liked it a lot. smile sometimes the emotions were a bit too intense for the situation, but i believe in their own way they were justified...

the art is beautiful too~~ i wish we knew for certain

whether she was able to see again or not... i'd like to think so... so yeah, i'll just go ahead and say yes. :) even so, i really don't think it would matter which is the cute part! i also think their relationship is continuing to grow stronger and stronger

i also think it wasn't creepy; it just delved more into the male protagonist point of view, and the lust he was inevitably feeling for her battling with the childlike notion he's had growing up. i believe that, although he was a bit more... drawn... to her haha. wink

So, I didn't see the intensity that everyone was talking about. Maybe it's because I've read way more intense works. I did like the story however. I thought that it was sad and emotions were tangled and unclear. But not as dark as I was expecting it to be. It was good :-)

That was an intense one...

People who complain about Seika not being old enough or being in jr high probably didn't really read this manga thouroughly enough - it's clearly said that she is 16 and thus she is 1st year in highschool - even Akiharu keeps constantly talking about highschool ... so far to that topic

All in all I really liked this manga eventhough the end was kind of to be expected.
The tragedy really boosted the intense factor which made me impatient of whats happening next and I couldn't stop reading until the end.
I recommend it for people who are looking for a shorter story which is a bit more exciting and heart throbbing.

Okay, so before reading the actual series, I briefly scanned over the comments here, and I was actually expecting some sort of really disturbing, near horror manga. But of course it never turned out to be that. It's not especially psychologically too sick/disturbing either. In fact, I wish the author had gone even further with Akiharu's creepy fascination with Seika's physical features (artwork looked pretty scary, especially in the beginning). Honestly I thought the plot was really going somewhere along the line of Psycho or The Picture of Dorian Gray, but no, those parts that were mentioned never developed/explored in the plot (-_-) Instead I eventually just get tired out by all the false alarms. Silly couple. Silly, silly couple.

I am still not sure if they're pure or sick. They act normal. The guy is like the perfect boyfriend and she is a perfect girl. It's just... off. Also the twisted and strange mentality being described here is being perfectly off set by morie satoshi's clean, white style. This just threw me from one emotion to the next. I've never felt so yanked around.

I can't shake the feeling of fragility in their relationship. It's like the whole thing could collapse into some mutual destructive depression. If she ever left him I can't see either one recovering and, frankly, there are some yandere tendencies going on that I don't like at all.

See? This is what this manga did to me. I'm over half-convinced those two are real people. I can't even concentrate on the words or art or anything because those two characters have me watching their every move. I can't think. It's like I don't even have to. They don't need me or their story. They only need each other. It's creepy.
