Due to time and internet constraints, I only read the first two chapters, but I liked what I read. It was dark, sexy, and somehow so beautiful that only the word 'poetic' feels apt to describe it. It was beautiful on the surface (the art was amazing), the flow of the words was eloquent ("pure white skin" "I'm afraid I'll dirty her" "my palms are stained black"), and the overall feel was one of innocence tinged with the inevitable lust of young minds. I don't know how it ends, but I hope it holds out that aura of mystery and passion and terror of an angel being slowly and willingly corrupted for the whole series.

Internal struggles

It's nice reading about a love story which highlights the madness and anxiety of someone falling in love. Although 90% of the inner voice in this story belongs to the guy, I was still satisfied with how the author showed the effect of insecurity in a relationship. This was tagged as psychological as most of the story is about coping with internal struggles, but the dramatic twist in the middle kind of left me with a depressed feeling. Then again, the manga ended well so it deserves a good rating.

The drama was intense.. But I fealt there was no build up in the beginning which I didn't like... Wish the guys weren't so skinny.

I thought the guy was really insane and their relationship would involve violence since he was described as mentally unstable..I was waiting for some"super-downpoint" of their being apart or so...HOWEVER..I like him being that 'pervy'...artfully done and she reciprocated him that well without looking like dense heroine.

Love love love it. It was so sexy and heart pacing. A part of you felt the moment, I live for these kind of manga's. The couple is so fragile, but its not exactly a normal romance its not pure or fluffy puffs of stars and hearts which you'd expect from other age-gap shoujo's. Highly recomended!

I would like to say not to condemn the main character for being weird and stuff or creepy..i got this quote from i drama which I've watched not to long ago "He's an artist so he has the right to be eccentric.." I think it's the adjective that suits him best..

For me this is a very good read..i can feel how fragile the characters and the selfishness because of love..wanting to trap them in your world but at the same time, thinking that sunshine is best for her etc...

and really i don't find it perverted at all..well wanting to touch comes with love and so on

i would totally recommend it!! i hope i expressed my feelings well too smile)

I came across this when I was flipping through the related section of a manga I was reading and I was astounded. The deep emotions and the utter inner turmoil just rocked me to the core. The couple themselves were sweet and adorable but with the added in deepness, it just made every action they did more meaningful. The summary doesn't give the manga enough justice, seriously. ^^

This manga is pretty intense. It's not disgusting or disturbing but it's very very deep.. it definitely goes beyond the "simple love" that other shoujo's have but it's what makes it different. I don't really know what else to say... it had a sense of fragility which made it so beautiful and it has a really deep meaning to it so I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking for a romance that goes beyond the typical shoujo stuff.

good growth!

i really liked the character growth; it was even more impressive because there wasn't much "outside" drama to build or tear their relationship, it was all internal and between the two of them. it was an intense love, and i liked it a lot. smile sometimes the emotions were a bit too intense for the situation, but i believe in their own way they were justified...

the art is beautiful too~~ i wish we knew for certain

whether she was able to see again or not... i'd like to think so... so yeah, i'll just go ahead and say yes. :) even so, i really don't think it would matter which is the cute part! i also think their relationship is continuing to grow stronger and stronger

i also think it wasn't creepy; it just delved more into the male protagonist point of view, and the lust he was inevitably feeling for her battling with the childlike notion he's had growing up. i believe that, although he was a bit more... drawn... to her haha. wink

So, I didn't see the intensity that everyone was talking about. Maybe it's because I've read way more intense works. I did like the story however. I thought that it was sad and emotions were tangled and unclear. But not as dark as I was expecting it to be. It was good :-)
