Description
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?

Sweet but SAD!!!

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.

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*

Too short

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 :\

One-Shot   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0
by MatrixM

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.

captivating story

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.

The oneshot had a better ending than the remake.   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Now that the manga has ended, I can make a review:

The original oneshot was a compact and simple story of two people falling in love, even though one is fated to die. The major difference in story between the oneshot and the remake is the ending.
In the original
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the girl chooses to die to keep the one she loved alive, and in reality she had a terminal illness
In the remake
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the boy ends up dying, she doesn't have a terminal ilness and his memory lives on in their child.


To be frank, the remake didn't add substantial development or plot that the oneshot didn't have. Sure it added more character development, but every page in the oneshot had served a purpose, and was paced perfectly, whereas the remake did falter in the development of the main characters, while sometimes getting distracted by the introduction of side characters.

Overall, a great read. A wonderful story of why some people choose to die for the ones they love, it helps you understand the motivation behind love, and the unreserved compassion that man can feel for those he loves.

That said, the story didn't gain much from being remade, the oneshot imho is the superior work. But well done nonetheless, Seo Kouji.
