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.

another captivating romance-type of manga. the story itself will move you to tears. as you would expect from Seo, each scenes will enlighten you to appreciate the real beauty of true love. Love in the very essence, is sacred. and the story shows how a person will go all the way for the sake of ones love. It will be interesting if the manga will be adopted into a series. It may surpassed the stories Seo have created so far.

Mixed feelings after reading this. Although I tried to stay away because I dislike tragedies, I went onto a manga site and clicked the RANDOM MANGA button. It gave me this.
I read it. Interesting plot. Average read, not bad.

I don't think it was a tragedy, since they got to meet each other.
Though one of them did die, they had enough love to last forever. Just as she said, that was God's gift to them before one of them died.

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.
