I love this manga... It might be a little cliche, but it's still worth a read. The art's great and it's so sweet *-*
I cried... T_T

Okay, I've finished in one go and really enjoyed it. I guess deep down I'm somewhat corny and actually, I've been reading a lof of josei and shoujo lately.

So, this manga is simple to its core: from the art, the characters to the plot. Everything is predictable and you almost see every cliche in the shoujo type. But isn't true that the simplest thing hits you the most? A typical Japanese young girl is sold to a geisha house, got a crush on the boy next door and dreaming of being with him. It's like a stereotype! However, as the author kept the story short, only in 2 volumes, you can clearly say the characters' development and the progress of story. There isn't any wishy-washy moment but very causual problems. In total, the manga gives out a feeling of slice of life.

I might be biased since I read this while remembering the good times of me and my girlfriend and how things should have turned to be. But all in all, give this manga try and you won't regret its simplicity and completion.

Why is the ending like that argggggggggh.The thing I didn't get is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
why the hell didn't Chinatsu flipping tell his rich dad to not let him go into war ??
I really did enjoy this and I usually haate short manga but I didn't feel as though I was reading a short manga although I think this manga would of still been good if longer smile

The ending felt very predictable and rushed tbh and I knew that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when war was mentioned, their had to be a reason as to why it was (the mangaka wouldn't just throw that in outta nowhere -_-)
I loved the manga up until the end because I just felt like the ending was just thrown in outta nowhere and it just ddidn't suit the nice flow the story had going.I knew that the end would be like how it was when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
:four years was mentioned...
and at the end I was left thinking "err...where's the ending, cuzz this sure as hell ain't it"

All in all i'd say good story, random/uneeded ending.

Oh and don't read the comment below me if you don't want the whole manga to be ruined :/

It's pretty and its a very good read. Not groundbreaking in anyway, but still an amazing read. It's perfect for when you get sick of the typical shoujo plots

Man...these people scared me and crap, I just got done crying.
This is a really good story to me it's not over cheesy and caked with crap. It's very original and artfully crafted, really good read.

this is a nice cute little story, im glad it ended the way it did.

the art was nice/very cute and i think the length was just right for this one. overall i liked it.

i dont understand why monkey thought the end was artificial, I have to disagree its what made the story so sweet.

When I first put this on my "Contenders" list (personal list of manga I want to read) it had been labeled as a "tragedy" in the genre section. I avoided this story for a year. Let me tell you-- I DO NOT do tragedies. I'm one of those people who will end up crying on floor, sobbing uncontrollably about whatever the hell happened-- asking "Why did they have to die?!?!?!" For example, try watching "Life of Pi" (unrelated movie) and imagine me in the before mentioned circumstance.


So, needless to say-- I'm able to comment now, not undergoing such an episode. It's not a tragedy. You may or may not get a couple of tears in your eyes towards the end, because it's that good of a real story. Don't worry tragedy avoiders-- you will not see the floor tonight.

Very cute story, could have been dragged out a couple of more chapters (particularly in the beginning), but good nonetheless. Certainly worth a read.

A little too perfect maybe?

The only thing this story lacks in is in its flaws. The plot and art were used extremely well to embody emotions of the characters as well as the historic mood of the story as it unfolded. What stands out to me most is how much the story changes and how you can feel the main character becoming more mature - the time lapsing was perfect, not too fast or too slow. And I also liked that we get to see pretty much the full length of the characters' youth and happiness. In addition, I unexpectedly got teary-eyed near some sad parts and frankly the story moved me. I didn't expect it to because I'm personally not really into historical manga but the elements were presented in a very casual and realistic way that was never too much of one thing. In all, you could say the historic element grows on you the deeper you read on. However, the story was a bit predictable (I could pretty much map out every next plot twist) but it wasn't really a bad thing that things fell into their places either.

Rating: 9. Overall I personally wasn't blown away by the whole of it. I look back and only remember certain highlighted elements but not to the point where I would re-read it.
But I'd say its the perfect "romance/slice of life" for someone who wants a very clean and light read.
