From Turtle Paradise:

16-year-old Kizuna stalks the city at night, flirting with middle-aged salary men and coercing them out of their money. The thrill should be enough to satiate her, but Kizuna remains unsatisfied with her everyday life… That is, until the beautiful Inoue Yuki, also living in “Birdcage Manor” approaches Kizuna with a job proposition- to model in the nude for Yuki’s cousin, a painter and fellow resident Yusei Asai!

There are so many great things about this manga, but I especially love the characters. Especially the main character; she's just so hilarious. And not in a stupid-shoujo-lead way, but in a... this girl is so realistic and sarcastic that I want to be her best friend. But yeah. It's great.

Edit: So, the ending chapters are kind of a let down, but Kizuna's still an awesome heroine. If nothing else, this story gets 8/10 from me because of her (and Yuki, why not more Yuki?).

This really is a great manga! Gorgeous art and plot! I love the plot. I love how I am pretty certain about how it is going to end, but, at the same time, I HAVE NO IDEA. The writer has an idea in their head and I cannot follow. It's nice sometimes to be taken for a drive and have no clue what road the driver's taking. It's all about the journey!

I haven't really read anything like this; the main character is very uniquely characterized, and so is the setting and plot. The characters are all special in their own way; they have individual traits and pasts that make them who they are. Still, with that being said, I didn't really enjoy this. The art was lovely and varied, and here was a nice bit of humor along with the drama and romance... but I just didn't like it!

I totally understand why other people love this, since it's definitely a high quality work, but I guess I didn't like Kizuna all that much. She was a great character, but I don't think she fits with Asai well, since she'll never really understand him. Plus, I feel bad for Yuki, who's awesome, and suits Kizuna more. Speaking of her, Kizuna's character is strong and unique, but also young, inexperienced, and sort of selfish. She's very realistic, overall... just not my cup of tea. She's still young, so it's understandable, but I find her to be inconsiderate and mean sometimes. I also find Asai to be like that, as well- he doesn't consider Kizuna's feelings, and even at the end, he
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Asks her to wait for him even though he says he might never love only her? C'mon, man. That's a little callous.

Basically, this might be up your alley, it just wasn't up mine- the characterization is great, the plot is incredibly unique for a romance shoujo, and there's a lot of psychological stuff that's done pretty well. The art is also good, and suits the story well. With that being said, I didn't like this- even if it's a "different" romance story, it's still a romance story... and I don't think it's a very good one. The two main characters don't connect very well, and I don't know if they could ever be truly happy together. Also, I happen to like Yuki much more than I like Asai, so that makes me like the main couple even less. Still, that's personal opinion- I can't deny this is a well-thought out and well-executed manga. Just not for me.

Wow, this manga just blew me away... I normally don't review mangas unless it was uber horrible or brilliant and non-cliched..... This manga just totally exceeded my expectations and I had no idea it was going to turn out like this. It may seem like a simple and normal manga at first, but you just keep turning the pages and become so immersed into it... It has that magic that seduces you and you don't even realise you're up to the last chapter! I finished it in one go. And that's SUPER rare. I always fall asleep but it's currently 3:52am and I have managed to stay up just to finish this beautiful manga. Totally recommended. Don't get put off by the prostitution tag because there is none lol.

Also, I don't know what the other people are saying about the heroine... She isn't typical at all. Her character development was amazing. Her willpower and strength was so admirable (not physically, I'm talking about emotionally etc.) I actually really like her character and that is so rare because I hate almost every shoujo heroine that exists LOL

It's enjoyable & reccomanded for the shoujo fans out there. The art, is also good. The plot is detailed. And the lead female isn't all pushy and cowardly. I really enjoyed it and can't wait for the next chapter!

Ah well, it's that kind of manga you read when u see that the next chapter is out and u feel like "yeah, well, only around 30 pages, so i'll read it" but u'd never read it all in 1 go, and u'd be skipping lots of pages...
10 for art... but I guess this genre just isn't my thing smile

theres a lot of unanswered questions especially toward the end. however, this is mangazition of novel, so it is understandable for more in-depth story one need to read the books. still, it is great as it is with beautiful airy art and engaging characters. plus point for the translation, they did a great job making them sound so upbeat.

This manga surprised me! It was different and it wasn't cliche or shallow at all which for me was a breath of fresh air. Two things i really loved about this manga is the character development and the pace of it all. I really loved how each character overcame a huge obstacle that allowed them to break out of their shells and comfort zone. They grew stronger together and learned from each other. I have no idea why people don't like the main character because she's quite strong! She's never been a whiny, quiet, submissive character at all! Anyway.. the pacing of the manga was amazing. Nothing was rushed or too slow, it all had great timing and the pace of it all (hope this makes sense) was perfect. The art was beautiful too but I really loved how the mangaka was able to show us each character's world and how different they all were. The world of a painter who's time has stopped and the world of a teenager who's realized how much time has passed, struggling to find herself. Both characters breaking out of their worlds, joining reality together. It's beautiful, it's a slice of life and very much worth the read.

It's a fun story,and the art is really nice, but god art doesn't mean a good story, and in this case it wouldn't even matter since it's a different author and artist, but anyway,it is a good story,the only thing that bugs me is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that there seems to be love triangle forming and I'm not too fond of them especially since the girl is going to have to fight with the ghost of the guy's dead girlfriend, and I don't mean that the actual ghost makes an appearance,but the guy has said that Kizuna (the girl) is not half the woman his dead ex was and when he feels like he's letting go of her memory,he goes to the place where she committed suicide to relive the pain all over again. I feel that's a waste,because what self-respecting 16 year old girl is going to want to waste her time fighting with another's ghost when there is someone else who's interested and free from past ghosts? I mean it could turn around and she could fall for the other,or remain uncaring for either,but that's likely not happening , it is a shojo after all....)

So that is my only complain, since Kisuna for the most part is an interesting heroine for a shojo
