The beginning of this story made me think that this was a really typical shojo but it turned out to be pretty good in terms of the story and the character development for all the main characters. Glad I stuck with this until the end.

The manga was alright; not great but not bad either so its good for a light read. HOWEVER the one shot/special chapter that was with it was definatly 10/10, it was incredibly beautiful and moving (even if it wasnt really what i thought it would be)

The extra story, Secret Garden, is one of the most beautiful things I've ever, ever read. Even if you don't read the main story, GO READ THE ONESHOT. That's why this is getting a 10/10 rating by the way.

Overall I guess you could say this is the kind of manga that you read when you want to fill up your time. I found the love triangles cute, frustrating and overwhelmingly annoying at the same time which is not a first for me. The story was alright but I guess it wasn't the type of story for me. The ending was a bit disappointing and yet satisfying. It really is hard to describe this manga without contradicting myself. But I wanted to comment on the most was the extra 'The Secret Garden'. That was one of the best extras I have ever read!!! it was so bitter and sweet and cute and adorable =D Everyone must read the extra even if you hate the main story. Although it may not be liked by everyone I found it perfect.

Secret Garden.

It wasn't the main story that I felt strongly about--it was the extra: Secret Garden that made me rate Katakoi Triangle higher than I would have. The main story was okay, I actually don't remember the specifics of it anymore. But the extra, ohgosh. It made my heart hurt so bad. Sooo bittersweet, sad, undeniably realistic. I felt crushed when I read the ending pages of it.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"After Jack disappeared, there was only one letter with news of him...and that was...he lost his life in a far away, distant land."
I think I received a serious blow. My heart fell with those words. Why?? /cries.

If your heart hurt after Secret Garden and you would like to inflict another serious blow, give Inoribana's Souai Metaphysica a go. It's a oneshot with a similar story. OHGOD. Am I a masochist? The pain of both stories combined...

Honestly, everything but the ending was good. It was a good love triangle manga, innocent and pure, but the ending grated on my nerves. I guess the only thing I can say is that it was kinda boring.

That was good. Seriously. I never ever ever thought that love triangles and unrequited love could leave such a warm and sweet feeling. It's also quite rare that I didn't dislike any of the characters and instead, I just wanted to hold them all and pat their heads... Super cute. Great narration. Loved it.

I usually avoid love triangles like the plague. Very rarely are they necessary to the betterment of the story and in most cases, only serves as a trite plot device to keep things moving. It probably doesn't help that the heroine always ends up with the jerkface either. Here, things are a little different. The setup is different from the typical, and the characters, though fairly predictably, are engaging and likeable. I like that the focus is not just on the melodrama, but on the dynamics of their friendship too. The humour, too, is well done and it's works well in keeping the atmosphere light and easygoing.

The only thing that bothered me was the pacing of the plot... It's probably because of the limited length of the story, but everything felt a little too rushed towards the end. Because of this, some of the script came off as cheesy and over-the-top.

Overall, it was a cute read. Katakoi works great as a happy little pick-me-up and I would gladly revisit the story another time.

The way the characters are drawn makes their heads look big, but at the same time, it gives the manga more of a 'shoujo feel' (in my opinion) which pretty much means its cute...
All the misunderstanding and comedy is hilariously cute, so are the small romantic moments, and the arguments between the characters makes you just feel sad ..... T.T
Himemiya is a good friend towards Sekiya, and the fact that Yuuki is dense, just adds more cute comedy into this manga.
So, to sum it up, this manga is... Cute....
