The concept is interesting, but the story itself really really dragged for me. I would have gotten the same out of reading the first ten chapters + last two as I did reading the entire thing. Too bad.
worth reading till the end
At first, I enjoyed reading it because it was funny and cute. As the story progressed, it became this beautiful and unconventional love story, that I could not put down. It's almost like a play within a play possessing ALL of the dramatic elements in classical theatre but with a strong grip on realism, which helps it steer clear from becoming a soap opera.
Basically, the characters are rich, the plot is interesting, and the story was beautiful.
If you read this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I had
Couldn't finish it, I stopped at ch 10. Too much about BL which I'm not into, also I think living in the past is stupid. Keidai just is too pathetic and this story drags on and on about how much he's into Yuuma/Serena, meanwhile Yuuma is straight and he's into Seizawa/Loreius. Past lives could be interesting especially if there's a soul mate but the premise of this story ruins that concept.

That was so heartwarming.
This story was about a man who had a beautiful and precious past life, and a woman that he truly loved. In fact, he truly loved everyone. Now, he's living his life, still remaining true to his past, and honouring it. There is absolutely no doubt that he loved everyone from this past life, and it is truly beautiful
Beautiful in every sense of the word. The poetry of every line of dialogue was beautiful. The story and its deep effects on the main character's beliefs were beautiful. The love shared between any characters was beautiful. Even the art itself was absolutely astounding. The sheer emotion that was expressed in all of their facial expressions was breathtaking.
I highly recommend this manga. The summary makes it look like a comedy/romance, but it's more part drama, part psychological in a way, and quite a bit romance. It is absolutely beautiful. I am so glad I read it. I haven't found a perfect 10 manga in so long. :')
Picked it by coincidence at the library and it hooked me instantly. Saeki/Sirix never fails to put a smile on my face with all his gags and antics, all the characters are beautifully designed and all have their own backstories. They arn't there for the sake of being there. It didn't feel rushed at all and I felt everything came together when I read the final volume. Give it a shot, its an awesome series!
Loved it, but...
It was definitely good, but the whole concept of reincarnation, and me believing in soul mates tested my beliefs about it a little. In the end, the final couple was not to my liking, but it was hard to rate it low because of that, since overall it was good. I just kind of ignored how it ended, since it was the most I could do. The characters are all very interesting to watch, and it had me laughing a lot, so I really enjoyed it.
it had an interesting plot... but...
the first few chapters that I've read was too slow. I'll read on for some more and see if it changes... but it's more likely that i'd drop this out of boredom
i am probably weird..
ahh... i can't put my finger on but i find this manga super entertaining. it's sweet, cute, really funny and drawn really well. this is one of those manga's which everything is sorted out in the end, no lose ends at all. now that i think about it, i don't know why i keep passing this manga since i found it quite to my liking. lol. well, lastly my favorite character is Loleus/Mii. i really love her/his attitude in both he/his past life and the present. she/he's really an interesting character.
Decent read but not Impressed
The manga is really funny, very well drawn and I appreciate this authors story telling ability. I got caught in the very beginning but my interest started to quickly fade after the first volume. Seemed long and became uninteresting and I was forcing myself to read further. The humor, while great (I found myself literately laughing out loud at some things.) wasn't enough to keep my interest. The ending was very good though but the entire manga hardly seemed worth all the volumes you have to read to get to the good stuff.
I think my expectations were entirely to high because a lot of the reviews I read were something along the lines of "insanely brilliant" and "the best thing I've ever read". Hardly the case (for me anyway).
Recommended to all shoujo-fans.
Love it. I wonder why I didn't pick this up earlier. I really got teary towards the end when they were going in full detail of the past life. For some reason, I felt there were filler moments at times, but other than that, recommended to all shoujo fans.
And BL fans, don't get your hopes up (like me, lol).
