Nagakawa Shinichi and Sanada Yuuki both get involved in an accident and die together, but they are given a chance to live again. A voice lets them survive for seven more days. However, after the time limit, one of the two must die again.

Also, their lives will be shared, including emotions (guilt) and physical sensations (pain). They are told not to leave the other's side, else both of them will die. Now, with each of them wanting to save his/her own life, how will the next seven days of non-separation be like? Will they get along?

"They are told not to leave the other's side, else both of them will die."

why not do this near the end when they tried to kill themselves? is parting in some minutes are that hurting? yeah.. maybe..

Good oneshot though, aside from that plothole, the romance is good and the the tragedy is overwhelming....

For a oneshot, it is plenty good.

Most of the oneshot I read doesn't have decent ending. Well, couldn't blame the mangaka, maybe they try to make it a series. Only a few oneshot could bring story to a decent closure, and this is one of the few.

As for the series counterpart of this story, it did what the oneshot couldn't do, character development. I think the mangaka tried to make readers empathize the story and the character more with this series. Will see how well it comes out.

The ending twist is somewhat ... disappointing (a bit forceful and Korean-drama like, which I dislike most). Should ve extended to some more chapters to captivate the love developing between 2 characters, since IMO its the best thing about this one-shot (and is what this mangaka is best at, after reading some of his works).

There is a series that does extend this story, somewhat changes the plot to be more logical and is at chapter 3 at the moment of this writing. It is however way less emotional evoking :\

The one-shot was great. To be honest I find most romances that aren't tragedies boring >.> And though it was kinda predictable, it was still emotional and done well.

the series doesn't seem to be off to a great start. In fact I was thinking that this was better off as a one-shot but seeing as there's a 7-day time limit I suppose it won't go full retard due to running too long for its premise.
As of ch1, it's already fallen to using nudity/ecchi. :/
EDIT: Right, ch3, it's pretty predictable and shithouse. stick to the one-shot then move on.

Pretty good Oneshot

The ending is sad but there wasn't enough chapters that I can really relate to the characters. I agree that the manga should have at least 7 chapters one for each day because only 1 chapter doesn't make this manga that great. The oneshot is good but the execution like imapepper2 said is poor.

A 'Complete' Story

The famous Seo Kouji . . . Well, how lucky am I? The first and, at this point, the only title of his I have read is Half & Half, with which he debuted. Good thing I have been putting off Suzuka. XD

Well, yes, I highly recommend it. The story is nice and the ending is beautiful, although I wished for more seriousness. I liked how it was not emphasized that it was 'god' who gave them a second chance, but I wish more had happened between the two romantically. Also, fan-service was unfortunately lacking.

Give it a shot. The artwork is pretty good. *Thumbs up*

It's so sweet!! But really sad!!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Spending time together in a moment. Mutual feelings with each other. Very sweet. But the sad ending. Because in fact, one of them willing to die for their loved ones. And ends with the woman who would die for the man, because she does have the disease and do not want to make the man died in vain. (Think in terms of other way)

Damn it really hurt. I hate tragedies, but I loved this one, though it should have been longer and the characters further developed.
Btw I really like billy111786 idea.

I was expecting a lot more from this story. Seven days together with someone that can have no secrets and can’t leave you side and this is the entire story we get? The artist loves to draw and paint, really?!?

If that is the limit to the depth of understanding a person is able to experience when connected to someone so intimately it is possible to feel every emotion a person has than what a waste. Maybe I am unique but I am able to learn this level of “understanding” from conversations with co-workers who I have a hard time remembering their last name.

I think this story deserves at least seven chapters (one for each day).
