Description
From Pinoymanga Scans:

Keisuke and Makura are childhood friends who grew up together almost like brother and sister. One day, due to a misunderstanding they had, Makura left the house angry until Keisuke's Mom is worried about Makura not coming home yet, thus Keisuke is told to go look for her.

Reluctantly, Keisuke went out to find Makura, He ended up at a place they used to go often, the sunflower field. Luckily, Makura was there. Keisuke joined her sitting on the bench and they began to reminiscence.

When Keisuke decided that they should head back home, her mother phoned him and said that Makura collapsed and didn't wake up. She also told him to head to the hospital immediately. At that same moment, he looked at Makura, who was not standing but floating in the air...

Read only Chap 1-17 for a good time. Summaries below, so beware of spoilers.

This is a series revolving around a modified story of Sleeping Beauty, but instead of putting the
Female lead, Makura, out of commission for the whole of the story, it allows the story to continue
having her around by making her a ghost while she's asleep.

So to summarize the plot up to chapter 17,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the story began with Makura being in love Keisuke, but was cursed and put to sleep, with the side effect of appearing as a ghost while she sleeps. Meanwhile, Keisuke, her childhood friend who's like family to her, realised that he was the only one who could see her, and thus took up the responsibility of searching for a way to wake her up, while at the same time, tried to give her a normal live as a ghost by taking her out to restaurant
for dinner and letting her watching tv, etc.

His search for clues on her condition led him to meet Yukihime, a beautiful senpai who's both an
idol and the granddaughter of the doctor who's trying to cure Makura. She would then become the 3rd party in this love triangle, while Keisuke juggled his feelings of affection about the two girls in
his life. After been attracted to Keisuke because he treated her differently from other people (re:
not like an idol), Yukihime shared information on his grandfather's research with Keisuke by
inviting him to her grandparent's home in another town. An incident at that town solidified
Yukihime's affections for Keisuke, and she confessed her feelings to him. Coincidentally at the
same time, something strange started happening to Makura. When she saw Yukihime hugging Keisuke, Makura started feeling pains in her left pinky finger. At that moment, another female ghost
appeared and helped ease her pains, while hinting that the curse was something that Makura wished for. She also said that the promised day was fast approaching and if Makura did not fulfilled her promise by then, she would die.

Makura hid that meeting from Keisuke, and secretly decided to support Keisuke in his relationship
with Yukihime, which was a misunderstanding that she had made right before she became a ghost. The next day, the three of them journeyed to Yukihime's grandfather's old research lab on a nearby
island, where they found an old picture of the other female ghost, and clues that suggested that
the solution to wake Makura was for her prince to kiss her. Keisuke struggled with the idea of
kissing Makura, but found himself trying to kiss Makura while she was asleep by convincing himself
that it was okay since he was just like family to her, and also because it was a possible solution
to wake her up. However, when Makura asked him why he was trying to kiss her seconds before he did so, Keisuke realised that he might have tried to do it because he wanted to kiss her, but instead
came out with a lousy excuse, which made Makura mad for his untruthfulness. Keisuke revealed half
of the truth about his approach the next day by telliing her that a kiss might possibly wake her up.

While at a festival, Keisuke finally realised that he couldn't allow another guy to be with Makura,
and made up his mind to tell her his thoughts. When he found Makura however, he was told by Makura that she wasn't going to be a burden to him anymore, and forcefully kissed Keisuke, thereby breaking the curse and disappearing. Keisuke met the other female ghost in a dream of his past, and the ghost told him that Makura had returned to her own body with that kiss. Keisuke returned home and was given a welcome-back-embrace by Makura at the train station.


And that's the story up till chapter 17, which is a definitive end for Pajama na Kanojo, mainly
because Makura stops wearing pajamas all the time in the remainder of the chapters.

And now for the review. The story up to this point was pretty good. It is a cliche story about a
boy trying to help a girl who was troubled by supernatural circumstances, however it had a couple
of mysteries centered around a mysterious girl in an old picture that was seeded consistently
throughout the story, so that the reader would not forget the plot. This helped push the story
forward and separated the series from other love triangle mangas.

Coupled with the beautiful art, which was especially obvious in close up shots, it made the characters' emotions look easy to read, even without reading the dialogues. The character's personalities were pretty well defined through the dialogues and character designs, though the first few chapters were a little shaky and inconsistent in terms of artwork. The panel distributions and panel transitions were very smooth, since the author wasn't afraid of using big panels when the situation calls for it. In the end, regardless of the cliched conclusion, it was the journey that mattered. And it was a good journey, in that you can understand the characters' motivations and emotions, even if some of the decisions they made didn't agree with you.

The next half of the series is made up by chapter 18 to 26. Here's a brief summary about what
happened.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Makura returned to school. Keisuke and Makura's relationship returned to normal, but Keisuke did not have the courage to ask her about the final kiss, and was therefore unable to find out if she remembered anything from when she was a ghost. Yukihime mistakenly thought Keisuke had accepted her confession, and regarded him as her boyfriend while Keisuke was confused and went with it. Keisuke started a new astrology club and his friends joined in. A new girl was introduced, and a sub character, who might be in love with Keisuke, was given way too much character development.

Along the way, while spending time with Makura in the club, Keisuke saw sides of her that he didn't
know about, and his feelings for her started to grow. However, this also caused him to become more
attentive to Makura's action, and it made normal conversations between them awkward. Furthermore, Makura was also starting to hang out with Keisuke lesser and lesser. It was then discovered that this might have been because she was moving away. Even though Keisuke tried to get her to stay, Makura told him that being around him was making her feel terrible, mostly because she was convinced that Keisuke was in a relationship with Yukihime. Keisuke decided to reject Yukihime and chose Makura. However, he was unable to determine the reason that was making Makura feel terrible, and so he didn't confess his feelings to her.

Fast forward 4 months, memories of Makura's dead mother made him decide to make an unannounced visit to Makura at her new town. After making a stop at a restaurant, Keisuke accidentally heard rumors about Makura having a boyfriend, and then saw Makura at the same restaurant. Thinking she was already attached, Keisuke promptly stormed out of the place, but Makura ran after him and cleared up the misunderstanding. The rumored boyfriend was actually talking about Keisuke. Keisuke told Makura that she was looking prettier now, and Makura confessed to him before he did.
The End.

And that is why I recommend stopping at chapter 17. Firstly, the 2nd half of the story does not address any of the mysteries presented in the first half, and instead slapped a superficial explanation to tie up all loose ends by having the female ghost appear to say goodbye, and carry the remainder of the curse off with her. Of course, that attempt failed miserably in my opinions, especially since the mysteries are one of the things that caught my attention in the first place. I mean, they didn't even reveal why exactly Makura fainted in the botanical garden, either in a flashback or an exposition.

Next, the artwork also started to fluctuate a lot in terms of details in the art. There were also quite a bit of problems with proportions in the characters. Not to mention the extra focus on sub characters. Even Yukihime herself made very little appearance and had very little character development in the 2nd half when compared to the sub characters. In fact, one would say she lost the depth in her characterization, and regressed into a girlfriend that's just there waiting to be dumped by the main character.

And of course, the ending was pretty abrupt. It came out of nowhere with no seeding or preparation, and characters were behaving strangely when compared to the 1st half, as if they were just trying to make things more dramatic for the final event. The whole 2nd half was also seen from only Keisuke point of view, instead of from both Makura and Keisuke's POV, like it was in the first half. It allowed the reader to be surprised by Makura's sudden moving to another town, but it also caused the story to become unable to reveal any of Makura's motivations for her actions, or address the truth behind whether or not Makura remembers anything.

Overall, I don't think very highly of the 2nd half, even with the understanding that it was a rushed ending due to being cancelled. However, the 1st half features a fast-moving story with decent character personalities. Also, there are lots of cute ghost Makura shots that cannot be denied of their cuteness. So read it if you like to finally see a good story where the main character falls in love with his childhood friend, (in case you don't know, childhood-friends-as-lovers love comedy stories are in very short supply)... but only up to chapter 17!

If I had to summarize this story in one word; repetitive.

The story starts off simple enough, childhood boy/girl friend begin to develop feelings for one another but can't be honest and open about it until a love triangle interest kicks things off with a misunderstanding and the girl blows the entire thing out of proportion. Next thing you know the girl's body is in a coma, the girl is now a ghost and the boy is wracking his mind trying to find a solution while the girl ignores the whole situation.

Doesn't sound too bad right? Except this is repeated every other chapter. The ghost girl acts extremely pushy but always pushes the boy away at the last moment, only to weep like crazy whenever the boy gets into misunderstandings trying to find a cure for her. Its extremely tiresome and repetitive since the bulk of most chapters is dedicated reminding us of their flat-out refusal to communicate.

Comments saying it's ecchi and all..YEAH. It's ecchi, and I LIKE IT. But this story isn't all about that, we got a nice, juicy love triangle. I honestly like both girls, this triangle reminds me of Ichigo 100% because of the similar art and 2 perfect girls. What's different is that both of the girls are assertive smile. And I love when fairy tales play an aspect in a manga, it's funny how the author forcefully make us notice Keisuke is the prince in chapters 9-11. Haha, and by the way, it's a good mystery as well!! I'm dying to know what's happening in both romance and the vow. Gosh, it's suspenseful.
I think a more important question is who would you go for? Snow White or Sleeping Beauty? Hehe, ignore the characters or not ignore them, but I'd like to know ^v^!!

As of chapter 10 the story is starting to get more interesting. The mystery behind the previous case. Why is everyone keeping quiet about it? What happened to the girl? What happened on the island? What is this vow? What exactly is it that happened to Makura?

As for comments about the ecchiness, PLEASE! if you can't see that this is tagged ecchi then you are hopeless. Don't complain that it's ecchi when it's CLEARLY TAGGED ECCHI!!! But even then it's nothing more than other mangas. There is absolutely NOTHING that jumps to mind that would make me think "this is overly ecchi" and believe me it would since I also don't like mangas that are overly ecchi.

The manga is clearly starting to pick up some pace. The way I see it was the first 10 chapters were to get the characters relationships and feelings for each other settled, and for setting up the mystery of the "curse"(?) that is on Makura, aswell as introducing other mysteries to the situation [Mentioned above]. I still stand by my 10 and will do so until either;

(1) The manga ends and I can rate it on the series as a whole and not JUST the beginning
(2) The manga deterrioates to SUCH an extent that I find it unreadable at all.

to kawashita mizuki's works. for instances; easy panty-shot, really lucky starting point for the young boy -- the one who is the closest to him can be considered the cream of crop --, another girl start flocking to him despite his (actually quite awkward) social responses. i thought, "oh, no, another inexperienced boy's romance fantasy once again."

if you're a male over 20, no, over 16, you've passed the age to enjoy this one.

This is basically pre-porn for youngsters. The story is only hentai/classic-shounen deep and the characters are the wimpy boy, the childhood friend, and the breasted beauty. This is what you read when you don't have access to porn (a highly unlikely situation). There is basically no value at all in reading this, but they do a good job at being mediocre, and that deserves about a 5.
