I'm keeping the high rating because the romance and dialogue was very sophisticated, how all the characters conveyed their feelings and how the story always had a interesting element.
[in spoiler just in case]
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the end... what a way to ruin something! BOO!! is what I said.. geez. Terrible. Abrupt and stupid! After all that build up and THE ENTIRE THEME! is just.. meh. I mean come on! "I'm leaving" "ok that's fine" was what he said but even worse than that. He had no explanation. And she comes back but after 10 years!!! I thought the title of this story was perfect and cute and tasteful but the ending ruined that completely because I don't know what happened with Rena after that. Basically the theme was cast aside. Oh and the sex was for the most part unromantic and almost trying to be comedic which I'm not really into. But there were other elements I loved about the story and that's why I gave it a high rating to begin with.

The ending is abrupt, but it wasn't really the author's fault: the magazine this was in got cancelled and it was too close to his planned ending to get picked up by another magazine. So he just had to wrap it up in the time he had left.

I really, really enjoyed the series but the ending chap 94-95 really?! The author could have done at least 5-10 more chapters and ended it well. Now I am just left with a sour taste in my mouth... I so wanted to love this 100% of the way but I feel this series has failed me! I've read all of the authors other works and this one ended so poorly Grrrr! I wont give any spoilers. /sigh (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻)

Aside from whether Rena's disease is a pure fiction, I like how the characters deal with it. This manga indeed contains adult materials, but they're not mind-wrecking. Instead, it's kinda encouraging, slice-of-life things. The idea is so original. The plot is solid and awesome. Rena who can't live without Agawa's kiss, even though they don't love each other. And Asou, Agawa's girlfriend who has to deal with Rena. How Asou-Agawa's love development despite Rena's problem. How Rena deal with her family and her dream-boy (which is, thank god, not Agawa) about her disease.Everything's wrapped beautifully.
Asou is a great woman, and she's my favorite character here smile
Anyway, if you're 18+, fine with some nudity, and tired of stupid smut or shallow shoujo ordinary plot, I highly recommend this manga. Super interesting.

Best since "Strawberry 100%"

Both manga have the terrific quality of showing us highly believable, somewhat idealized relationships. Of course the semi-lolicon subplot in this one is absurd, but the depth of understanding of the amazing messes that people can get into when they're trying to work out a relationship is as spot on here as it was in "Strawberry". The only difference is that "Strawberry" had younger characters

As for the semi-loli subtext, well, having it in there is just another example of the unique genius of manga, IMHO. Having read literally thousands of manga, I've come to realize that having an element in the story that's JUST over the line of standard morality is the genius of this form.

Cartoons with titillation. It's a brilliant combination! The use of cartoons is a great advantage for the storyteller because it make it possible for him to present impossibly beautiful people and impossible adventures. The addition of slightly transgressive titillation elements in turn makes up for the one great drawback of cartoons -- there can't be enough text/conversation in them to fully convey the characters' feelings and thoughts and by doing so hold the interest of a smart and/or adult reader.

This is one of the best manga I've ever read. As far as I'm concerned it shows how amazingly much truth about human feelings a cartoon medium can convey.

at first the plot seemed ridiculous but it was surprisingly good...
I want to see how this end... Rena x Amagi seems pretty "obvious" so I hope that's not going to happen.

kudos to the manga-ka. Some serious shits here to get away from the overwhelming amount of wimpy romantic shounen. Quite a strange way to form an awkward triangle. And horny situations bigrazz. Really curious about the ending, as I read the raws but didn't comprehend what happens at the end.

I really liked this series in the beginning but I didn't like the direction it took after a few volumes. What could of been a really good romance just turned into a really dumb story with no real meaning at all.

Like usual with Kitazaki Taku's works, it's pretty twisted, but the kind of twisted I can appreciate. If you don't get too absorbed and don't take it too serious, it's a pretty addicting and fun read. Recommended.

As some others have said, this is one little messed up series XD Should be tagged as "psychological" as well. Not too easy to just read through, sometimes the drama, jealousies, twisted stuff, etc are scary as hell. But very interesting! It's definitely quite a different kind of manga, totally worth reading smile

Oh and also, 100 points to the mangaka for making the main character a hot guy \(*o*)/
