Description
From Twisted Curiosity:

Meguru is an ordinary schoolgirl on a school trip. They stop to take a break and she is determined to confess her feelings to the boy she likes, Yashiro.

When they get back on the bus, however, a strange man grabs her and says that he's bus-jacking them. He shoots Meguru for putting up a fight and she thinks, fading into oblivion, ?I wish I could go back in time?. The next thing she knows, she has woken up in her bed at home and quickly finds out that it's the day before! What in the world?

Ok, it was a fun read and the main character is really funny and likeable. That said, it was kinda confusing, and i had to read the part
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
of the revolving lanterns
more than once to get it (maybe).
But my suspension of disbelief was seriously challenged towards the end:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So she gets shot, stands up, throws away a bottle, is kicked, confesses, freaks out, knocks out a man with a weapon, picks up a gun, shoots some bullets, hears the reply to her confession, and THEN passes out? And she's fine 3 days later? What the heck?
And the convict going on the bus to hook the two high schoolers up was kind of meh.


All in all a decent, but confusing read, with some lights and many shadows.

This short manga was really awesome XD
you'd think that Meguru would just go back in time to reverse her death
but it actually gets way more sophisticated later on
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the moment she realized that all the events will happen despite her attempts to prevent them from happening
and then suddenly she travels forward in time to the moment when she gets shot -.-I had trouble wrapping my head around that -_-

Also Meguru is hilarious, she's that clumsy yet energetic and understanding manga character that's very entertaining to read

The romance between Meguru and Yashiro is rlly cute as well XDXD
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I love how Yashiro and Meguru thanks God for the returning of their feelings for each other in the end. It was soo cute ^^
But it was RLLY random how Yashiro suddenly wakes up after being shot and asks Meguru to go out with him -.-
and is was HILARIOUS how Meguru, at the end, starts randomly shooting in the bus because she was upset that her love letter was exposed to everyone :3

the plot was very suspenseful too wink Near the end of the manga I was rlly curious as to how Meguru is going to confess and reverse the circumstances

Therefore, i personally think that this manga is rlly unique smile It's a great short mystery-romance-drama manga ;D
I rlly recommend ppl to read it XD

... It reminded me of Shindere Shoujo to Kodoku na Shinigami ;P (lool cuz it is by the same author - just realized -__- )

In this case: time loop + shoujo genre = bad combination

Main character is annoying, what she does has no sense whatsoever. Final showdown is ridiculous and absurd. Translation is REALLY bad, for example this:
"I'm the only one out of everyone" - which probably should be - I'm the only one who will survive.
"If I leave this as is, we'll all probably die" - should be - If I won't do something, we're all gonna die.
"Without an adult, you'll hemorrhage", the girl was shot and bleeding, so probably what was really written there is something like - without medical help (or without adults help) you may die from loss of blood.

Story itself is so so, but bad translation adds even more to overall negative impression from reading this manga.
For people who want to read story about time loop/second chances much better choices would be Haruka na Machi e, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi or even All You Need Is Kill.
