I missed the tag
I missed the false incest tag on this, I got about half way through - and that first half was great - and then expanded the tags to confirm my suspicions (and read some more comments) - and then spent the latter half kinda creeped out

I mean it's not like I haven't read Oh we aren't really blood related siblings now we can freely love each other!! before, but something about this one just weirded me out a lot. To the point where I may have actually said eugh... at my screen during the last few pages o,O
I think its because Midori is basically presented as perfect from the start... everything about his love for Saki made me uncomfortable. I don't think the author meant to present it as strange, I think we're suppose to thing it's sweet and cute or something but I was mostly bothered. Maybe I'm getting too old for this sort of shoujo, I over think it and turn innocent things creepy things?
The last parts made this manga a must-read.
I just finish reading this. In a couple of hours, i finish reading the whole thing. It's a short manga, but i cried in the last few minutes. The story was predictable from the beginning till chapter 10, but the last two chapters was not how i foresee how it will end. I actually felt like I was watching a k-drama, very emotional. It ended nicely, short and sweet, i liked how everything turned out for Suki, Midori and Kou.
Only on chapter 5, but...
So far, it's been awesome. I find it a very compelling manga, and I love the lead. Even though I'm not going through the same things as any of the characters, they feel very relatable.
Plus, since I've been depressed recently, this manga gave me something to think about. I mean, I may be farther away from the top of the happiness scale than most people, but I'm not at the bottom, either. Yes, things could be better. They could be much, much, much better. But they could also be much worse. I'm glad this manga helped me remember that, because today that was what I needed.
Overall, an enjoyable, compelling read so far. The art isn't something to rave about, but I was just randomly reading Koi nanka hajimaranai. 'nuff said. xP
This is NOT mystery
I didn't think this series was that horrible, actually I liked it. The art is nice, especially the covers for each volume. I just gave this a lower rating because the actual plot fell so far from my expectations. Saki is a good protagonist, independent, cheerful, and she even has common sense! Midori is also an interesting character, but the conclusion was so disappointing! I honestly thought that the plot would be more about her powers but in the end only one other person knew about it. And seriously, what kind of father is that stupid!? Meh, but read it if you like (false) incest.
I really enjoyed this. Actually, I had no idea what was going to happen and was worried that this would be a cheap "Oh noes, I gots superspowers and I mus learn hows to use dem" kind of story. Yet, it turned out it was more focused on showing that although people lie, they don't do it out of maliciousness or evil intent.
Really, the first two volumes weren't that great. The art was a tad bit bad. Dont worry it got better. Anyways, the characters were what made it really good. You could see from the beginning that Midori really did love Saki and that he wanted to protect her. You could also see Saki's blooming feelings. I thought it was nice that she was such a great catalyst, she got pretty much everyone she talked to change. The ending was my favorite. (I love happily ever after endings...Sometimes) Chibi Kou was adorable too.

Better than I thought.
It was in the wee hours of the morning when I came across this manga. I read all the comments before just deciding to go for it, I had time to kill. I enjoyed this manga a lot more than the comments would have made me believe I could. I thought it flowed well, if maybe a tad overly done with the mystery behind everything and maybe with a small bit of creepy thrown in. We saw the struggle behind our heroines life and decisions. And while the manga didn't focus on figuring out her 'power' I actually liked that it didn't. Sometimes weird shit happens, because of this power she was able to overcome a lot of things and along the way understand people. I liked how things were tied off at the end and I always love a happy ending. <3

Could have been really great, but eh
Ditto with kichiX's review. Aside from that, the manga started out great, and the second volume wasn't so bad either. But the third was just a huge disappointment. Maybe I'm biased because I wanted Saki to end up with Kou, and because I find the whole "Midori is actually not your blood-related sibling lol" thing just an excuse so it wouldn't be considered incest. Kudos though to the author for making a unique gimmick. The art is a nice mixture of old shoujo style with modern standards. I really like those eyelashes.
I actually didn't expect much from this manga but it was surprisingly enjoyable. It's not too long and the characters were pretty likable. The pacing and the secrets made it a better read. Overall, this is worth your time if you're looking for something to read. The plot is interesting, the art is decent and the female lead is as realistic as it gets for a shoujo manga. It's the epitome of a light-read.
The only thing I didn't like was the end, which was pretty out of place and ruined the pacing.

I liked this.
I liked the main characters. I liked the fact that they were grey. I liked the fact that Midori was nice. I liked the character development in the first volume. I liked the fact that it had a nice ending. I liked that the "jerk" actually, truly, realised he was a jerk and stopped being one. I find it a fault in most mangas that the main characters are almost never conflicted in their actions morally. It's almost as if the characters know they're in a manga and act according; unrealistic and always doing the "good thing". Saki, in a sense, is not like this. She acts more like a human in the first "arc". Although she does the right thing in the end, she was content to accept her "friend" (I forgot her name) being bullied after she exposed her lies. The ending of this first arc is not clear cut either; her "friend" is neither her friend again nor her enemy. Saki's love with Midori is exactly what fit in this manga. It crept in without Saki noticing, and as such didn't take much "shoved in your face" development from the author. Midori may have been 2-D, and his "secret" may not have been up to much (although in a manga, unless the hyped up secret is something along the lines of a secret government plot to wipe everybody out, it's always going to be a disappointment) but at least he was nice. And his niceness didn't really have any ulterior motive. I never got the feeling that he was playing with Saki for his own ends, but rather he actually cared about her. The third volume is different from the first; it focuses more on the aforementioned "secret" and the relationships between the three/four main characters. Although it would have been nice if the manga had continued in the same vein as the first volume, I didn't find it that bad. Overall, this is a nice manga, with a decent ending and characters that are more human than most.

Ok but just not... great
This story had an interesting enough plot, and the beginning was pretty good with some interesting questions but as the story progressed and came to its end... it just seemed to fall just of being anything really good or memorable.
Plot- I couldn't help feel from the first volume that the second volume should have been much more. There were secrets that turned out to be pretty shallow and not well explained and left the first half (which was pretty good) feeling pretty silly and dramatic with how easy it would to resolve the conflict. I know I'm probably not making much sense, but Midori's later reasoning’s sounded pretty lame and not really.... plausible. I just couldn't accept some of the answers to the questions and that made it pretty anticlimactic for me when I was expecting something more.
Characters- Ok, the main female is pretty amazing! Though she goes through hard time and difficulties she is always working to help others and herself, she won't just sit there and cry. It's really refreshing to see such a strong female lead!

Especially since she falls in love with the nice guy and not the jerk...or used to be jerk I guess... still
Midori however was very shallow and one dimensional and even when more of his past and character are revealed he was pretty boring and dull for me and not a very compelling character. As for the romance... it was shallow, fast and just... meh.

I'm not a fan of incest, and only read it because I saw the tag that said 'false incest' and I already knew that Midori was not really Saki's brother.
Art- All right, Midori looks a little strange form time to time. Nothing special or grand, but passable.
Other- It's just an all right story for me. Interesting plot, great female lead and yet it just doesn't meet up to its possibilities and ends up just becoming a forgettable story that I couldn't really enjoy. Too bad, it had potential. It's short, you might want to read it just for Saki, but I wouldn't recommend it.
