i just want to say i love her artworks, it's fantastic. but her storytelling? not so much. i felt so disappointed after a while. i just waited, hoping for the author to put together the story a little better eventually, but nothing happened so i dropped it. it really had a lot of potential to go somewhere. no character growth. just abrupt romance. i rooted for neither of the male leads (although i did like both) because the female lead was absolutely unlikeable to me. i didn't dislike her, her character was just really bland.

Although, I actually wanted Yosano to end up with Satsuki but I can understand her being with Mamura. This series made me cry many times, it was a tough manga to read. I hate it but I love it (is this possible?). I honestly suggest all readers to read this, not just girls, but boys too. So you can understand what love is and what kind of hardship you'll go through.
This is very beautiful series, please I recommend it.

I think this one is definitely a readable and good one, art- and story-wise.

I do agree with the guys that it is typical and cliched. But I like its execution. Only problem is how rushed, despite making senses, it is towards the end. And I definitely don't like how usually, not just this but shoujo in common, elaborations on the guys' feeling are missing. I am pretty sure Shishio was devastated. And I am confused on how unconditional Mamuro has been. I don't dislike the female lead that bad, she was inexperienced for God's sake. It is just the choice of the author. She can try to make it work out for Shishio and Chunchun. But it can be the other way because somehow it seems more appropriate and approvable socially speaking. So somehow it is realistic to me.

But then I just feel damn sad for Shishio. I truly do. I think Mamuro is nice and all. But its just the struggles Shishio bears. It hurts for both him and Suzuma. Mamuro is the better person. But I still feel incredibly sad for Shishio. So so sad...

I really love this ending. This is the first ever manga I thought it's fine whichever guy she'd end up with. I was rooting for both of them. It's realistic
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
since it's rarely in real life you would end up with your first love. Moreover, feelings can be changed over time.

Is it the journey

People say it's not the ending but the journey to get there. I believe it's a combination of both. For me, a good story has an awesome start, a great body, and of course a satisfying conclusion which is something I found lacking in this manga.

I really hate it when characters lie for no reason except to keep the plot going. How many characters lie in shoujo simply because telling the truth would alleviate the drama.

Like the pairing

I like the choice she made.

One kept making her cry due to his own indecisiveness.
One decided to make a move even though he know he doesn't stand much of a chance and is true to his feelings. Not to mention all he wanted was the girl that he love to be happy.

Isn't it obvious which love interest is the better choice? It's better to be with someone who loves you, more than someone that you love.

It makes me like the pairing even more because he is not the first love. I hate how most shoujo always make the lead end up with the first love even though the second guy is OBVIOUSLY better. (Yes I'm looking at you, Strobe Edge)

It's more realistic, but maybe for this manga it was TOO fast. Nonetheless, I like how she chose the better guy. (One reason why I always like Josei better)

The premise is very usual, girl moving to a place meeting first love and enemy turn to best friend, unending love triangle.

It may turn out good with the characters but then, the way it portrayed came out of a spoilt tuna can. The idea that the author is making the readers believe that YOU CAN MOVE ON, was NOT EXECUTED well. Turns out, the girl really loved the Teacher but could move on like a blink of an eye? The logicconfused

The protagonist turned out to be a fickle, bumpkin girl.

Nope, it didn't make me believe anything that happened after the ending. It's not worth reading a 2nd time for me. Destroyed shoujo troupes my @ss.

Congrats to those who was caught in the fishing rod. Not me.

This manga was full of emotions! I cried like a snotty brat for everyone's share. I couldn't hate anyone. I could sympathize with each character. Feeling what each one of them was going through was intense, definitely in a good way. It was a great read! (still crying damn it T_______T)

in the end, whether it was happy or sad... the ending didn't matter because the journey was very satisfying.

Also I think this was more mature than a "shoujo".

I actually really liked this manga, which is a surprise for me because I don't like teacher X student relationships. However, I loved the main character and found her easy to relate to in most situations. I liked the almost realistic take on how things don't always work out.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like how things weren't suddenly okay with Yosano and Sensei. Things went down and they didn't magically disappear from either of their memories or get dismissed like in a lot of manga. When Sensei said he didn't love Yosano, she couldn't just laugh it off when he said he'd lied like a lot of shoujo characters do. She was hurt, so she did what a real girl would do: moved on. That's another element I really liked. Yosano didn't keep coming back to Sensei. She figured out what was good for her and what she wanted. She didn't stick with her first love for the sake of being with him. She let herself become emotionally attached to Mamura and eventually found herself unable to love Sensei anymore because she had Mamura instead.
I honestly didn't think I'd care for this manga, but it kept me entertained for a few days. It's also easily forgettable, however. I can't remember most of the major plot points and I JUST finished it. The ending leaves a good taste in your mouth, however, so I guess it's fine. My grand total rating? Ehhhh about a 6.5/10. It was cute, kinda cliché, kinda not cliché, and already I've forgotten every name except Mamura's.

It made me feel so bad, uggh!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But if any manga were to choose the second love over the first, this one depicted it the best. It just goes to show how society likes first love stories. The reason why her choice didn't feel perfect is because the author illustrated her love of both of them as true love(depending on the interpretation), which is something that can't change depending on the person. We like to think of love interests as soul mates, and other halves and this is the reason why we can't tolerate second loves. This viewpoint does not really show up in real life but it's everywhere in the shoujo world (of media). I think this is the reason why so many people, including myself, might have disliked the story, even though it was written so well, and prettily *sniffles*

Somehow, it feels unrealistic how she changed so easily, but hey, it depends on the person right? ... Right?
