GE - Good Ending  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Description
A follow-up to a heavy response to the original oneshot manga by the same title.

Good Ending follows the main character Utsumi's interactions with Kurokawa Yuki, a member of the school tennis team, in order for Utsumi to confess his feelings to the captain of the tennis team.

It is implied that the title of the manga is derived from the "good endings" that are achieved in visual novels.

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!

As a person who reads both shounen and shoujo, I have to say, if you remove the occasional ''Oonuma has big boobs'' comment, this one is definitely a shoujo. And whats worse, Utsumi is written like a shoujo heroin (seriously half of time I had to remind myself that he's not a girl...). I couldn't relate to any of the main three characters, and it felt like they were just the stereotypical love triangle characters (if you reverse the genders of Utsumi and Kurokawa you basically get every shoujo love triangle ever...). And don't get me wrong I love shoujo, but this is just so forgettable.

I don't understand how can a mangaka create such boring, predictable and bland main characters, while some of her supporting characters are very interesting (seriously why wasn't this story about Eri). The worst thing about this in my opinion are the comments at the end of each chapter that are supposed to make you anticipate the next chapter, but they are so cheesy and stupid that I almost puked every time I saw one of those.

I don't even know why I put myself through 16 volumes of agony with this. Be warned this is one of those things that although you'll know it's awful you won't be able to put it away until you finish it.
I don't recommend this to anyone.

Everything about it was a roller coaster

So the beginning started off being a typical shounen romance series: full of misunderstandings. It was annoying, but bearable. Aside from that, it had a pretty decent start. The middle, not so much. Mostly everything but like 20-30 chapters were enjoyable. Everything else just felt so unnecessary. Hell, I felt some of the characters were unnecessary too (ie. big-boobed girl). The climax of the story was mediocre. I personally, however, enjoyed the denouement quite a lot. It somewhat made up for the lackluster middle portion of the story. In the end, I felt attached to the couple. I guess it brought me back to what I was originally expecting from the story: pure romance, true love, yada yada.

Overall rating: Meh.

(relatively) nice piece of romance despite its many (relative) flaws

I can't relate to many reviewers pov that this show swiftly becomes downright moronic after a good premise. I think it just starts pretty light to get progressively more serious and complex (and sometimes yes, soapish and melodramatic), and that, apparently, doesn't please everyone.

For me, what kept the show together was precisely the lead female character bipolar personality, and the uncertainty around her feelings and behaviour (in many respects a darker kind of Madoka in Kimagure Orange Road ?). It was greatly supported by expressive art concept and drawing in critical scenes, by a good pacing of tension buildup and release, and by numerous well-thoughtout situations (eg the photography contest scene). I'm also thankful that the mangaka didn't rely too heavily on quiproquos and misunderstandings to push the story forward, making it feel more realistic than many titles i've read. Instead I find she did a good job at smoothly creating intimacy between the protagonists.

On the other hand, it's a pity she took the easy way out by just bringing down most of the credibility of male "competitors", leaving the MC as the only "default" alternative, reducing the ambient uneasiness and insecurity. There's also this universal shounen/shoujo (damn) feature that the whole universe is strictly limited to the MC's microsphere, without any casual external event whatsoever to pepper things up. But the one thing i could barely stand was the constant and always counterproductive imo MC's introspections and the surreal abstract sentimental lectures, to the point i eventually started skipping a lot of text.

Although overall it was too long for me too, with this genre i prefer too long over too short since it gives time to flesh out the characters and their relationships, even at the price of occasional lack of originality, repetition and awkwardness. Perhaps i enjoyed it more than most because i read it within a few sessions once it was complete ; or perhaps, as someone prompted in another review, i'm a masochist (and a moron on top of that) for being swallowed into these whimsical love games, for ending up feeling like "i want to go back to those days" ?
