It's good if you like Drama. Not good if you don't.

Sasuga-sensei is a true master of love triangle. I applaud her ability to create a relate-able male lead despite being a woman herself and her incredible skills to integrate Shoujo elements into a Shounen based manga. But despite all my praise for her, I personally think that her manga is an abomination and the worst I've seen since School Days.

This manga is interesting in the fact that it attacks the audience's moral compass directly. It works its way to the borderline of NTR and gives a unique feeling of angst that you can't get anywhere else. It's that sick feeling to your stomach when you are instinctively repulsive about a topic. But at the same time, your consciousness is allowing yourself to continue reading because it's not actually bad enough to put you off. Girls love this kind of drama. That's why it is used over and over again in Shoujo manga.

Most girls value love more than loyalty. Unlike women, men value loyalty above love. Or rather, for men, loyalty itself is love. To be more specific, what women define as love is really lust and what men define as love is really loyalty. That's why most men like pure and honest girl while most women like the bad and naughty boys. But that's not to say that all men and women are like that.

I can see why a lot of people like GE. It's because some people out there like that kind of drama. I on the other hand, prefer the purity of love. That's why I can't bring myself to like GE.

So I started reading this and was really into the story for the first 40 chapters or so. Then... I don't really know what happened. Maybe I was just getting tired of the pace of the story. Maybe I just wasn't that invested in the characters. Heck maybe I just got tired of the cliches and misunderstandings that seemed to pile up. Whatever it was, I really couldn't stand reading another 100 or so chapters and so I just started skimming over page after page until I reached the end. For what it's worth the title of the story is at least accurate, the ending is indeed a happy one even if it does come across as a bit rushed.

One big issue I had is the same problem I have with many manga around this length, it just felt like the story should have been half as long. While a lot of the drama was actually compelling for the most part, cutting the story in half would have really helped to focus things and make the story feel like less of a slog to get through. I mean I can only hear about Utsumi complain so many times about his love problems that WE ARE ALREADY AWARE OF before I just want to slap the hell out of him.

The characters are a mixed bag. For example while I find Utsumi to be a little TOO spineless at times (especially for a guy who has women hanging all over him) I don't find him to be unrealistic, and he's surprisingly easy to root for. Yuki is also a smart and interesting character (when she's not acting dumb near the end...) and the two make a pretty cute couple when they're actually together. However some of the side characters like Rise, I don't even know why she's in the story. Sure Rise adds in a little bit of romantic tension, but Shou already fills that role and it's not like Utsumi even considers dating Rise for longer than a minute. It's like the mangaka had a good idea for a character design (because I like the way Rise looks to be honest) but didn't exactly know what to do with her other than halfheartedly making her another rival for Utsumi's love.

I'll admit, this manga does have a quality that made me want to keep reading and made it hard to put down at first. After a time though the story is content to just be as mediocre as possible, making up misunderstanding after misunderstanding and making you wish they'd just have sex and get it over with already. Frankly, I recommend reading the oneshot that came before the story proper instead of this because it's 150x shorter and I think is ultimately more satisfying.

I do like this manga a lot the main character has some really funny moments, the art is really good and the story is filled with Drama. honesty im starting to dislike harem manga now, cause i personally think all the girls deserve to win the guy cause they all had some pretty bad events happen to them and the are all good in there own way but in some harem "there can be only ONE!!!" lol..... well unless they do the harem ending but thats unlikely for realistic manga like this.

on a side not i wanted to reply to some of these comments, first of all she didnt really wanna get raped man[ she was just in a desperate attempt to keep the guy she loves and him being in a relationship with the senpai isnt a bad bad thing man shes a good character and its only fair to give him more experience like some others. Its funny how other manga love to potray these fake unrealistic "Totally pure and untouched girls" all the time and its okay to not always have that (cause the majority arent like that in this day and age. plus if people dont like drama or every thing that harem manga brings then dont read them if they gonna be exactly what you thought!
UPDATE:
[spoiler]Im just doing an ending update for this series with my original comment now that its over. Id say yea the ending was kinda expected and okay. I mean i did like the Senpai chick much more than the main chick Yuki (even though both are likable) and i was routing for the senpai to a point but i knew it would be Yukis win in the end it was obvious. So yea i accept it none the less however the only thing i really didnt like was the Senpai chick (Shu i think) ending up with her douche bag EX in the end. That sucked a lot for such a great girl. Yea i know that they were implying that he changed a lot but all we really saw was a giant ashole the whole time and we were expected to randomly except that random as development in the end. That sucked but this was still a good series[/spoiler]

Simply nice. Simple story. Good ending.

My first thought of this manga was: "Oh, ecchi and harem. The main character must be weak and suck." And it was true during the early chapters.
But then, halfway through, I just cannot stop clicking on the "next" chapter because I am really curious on how things turn out. There's a lot of misunderstanding and tears, and sometimes I can't help but want to slap the girls, but the point is, all those annoying conflicts will help them to be a better person.

The plot is simple, right? Afterall, there are many manga about high school life, romance, chasing after dreams, and building a future with a person you love. Still, within that simple plot, comes good story with good ending smile

I always love a story with character growth, and GE absolutely has that element. Of course, I'm not interested with the ecchi part, and the story itself doesn't have that much fanservice on the latest chapters, thanks to my relief ,lol. Welp, some might realise on how the story is kinda rushed, but it's acceptable for me.

I love how the characters find their own "good endings" in the end of the story. Yuki is a strong girl at first, but as we continue on with the story, it turns out that she has a weak and lonely side. On contrary, Shou is a cheerful girl but even she can gets emotional and hate someone.

It was a normal manga to me. But then, it suddenly turns to my favorite, and now, it is even in my "BEST" list. The epilogue wraps everything all. And I feel very satisfied of everything smile)

I think that it is a bit too long and thats why the story is a bit loose and rushed in the end but it really ends nicely. It is nothing to compare to any shoujo manga: I was smiling and sad while reading it. It has a bit too complicated with all those triangles and has some contraversal plot points but it is much more realistic and mature than what you usually read in school manga.

Anyway I recommend you to try and read it: I really like how MC grows and matures through the series.

Frustrating experience

For a story that had (at the beginning-mid part) some relatively mature themes, I'm surprised by how immature it is overall. I'm not sure if the author even knew what s/he was going for, or what he wanted to convey through the story. There's a lot of unnecessary drama, filler characters, and filler chapters.

The thing is, it manages to catch your attention enough to keep reading, even when you're frustrated at what you're reading. Even when you know it's awful, you keep going. HoneyDippedLemons' comment just 5 or so below mine is a very accurate one, and I feel like I wasted my time with this. Though I wouldn't say that the characters are bland and boring, they are so stupid to the point of being unreal. While Yuki's character at the beginning was interesting, smart, and felt real, she ends up as a stupid kid that frustrated me to no end together with Seiji.

All in all, the manga should've ended around chapter 100 or so, maybe a bit more (or less if you remove the fillers), while keeping steady progress with the events in chapter 87, it had a lot of growth potential. For how much attention Yuki's trauma got during the story, it's interesting that it's never shown how she resolved it either other than letting the reader guess with a rushed ending.

Don't bother. The frustration and time consumed are not worth it. Unless you have tons and tons of free time I guess.

Finished reading it and the only reason I read it is cause it's completed is highly viewed and what I got out of it just a huge disappointment of a character who lacked an ability to communicate and make decisive decisions with his relationships it made me bag my head so many times against the wall.

The manga overall is a very good read. It will hold your attention through each chapter wanting to read the next. I did notice many similarities to Kimagure Orange Road which a big plus if you ask me as manga today are mostly eye candy. The manga primarily focuses on romance, drama, love triangles and the pain that comes with each decision. My only gripe is the ending which was very good, but I wish it wasn't rushed and done in 2 chapters only as it is not fitting for a 16 volume manga. However even if it rushed, everything is complete, no loose ends remaining and there is even a time gap for those like me who look forward to such things.

I read this after a friend recommended it! I'm glad I did. Sure everyone has their opinion of it, but at the end I was smiling and had watery eyes. It was a good read for what the mangaka was trying to do with it. It was more realistic than most mangas, too.

Try it. You might just like it!
