It was alright..and that's about it. It definately wasn't the greatest shojo manga.. The developement was very smooth espically between the two characters. The storyline is very glommy to me, but cheered up alittle near the end. However, the ending was awsome, haha. what can i say, imma a sucker for happying end.

Involving, moving, cleverly written and drawn. It's definitely one of the best manga around

The story and the characters didn't really get under my skin up after the 3rd volume, but from there the series really took flight and kept flying mostly high ubtil the end.
There is present and past drama, and of course potential love rivals, crisis, etc, as traditional in shoujo/josei. But the way they're handled makes all the difference, and for the better.
It's addictive, delicate yet extreme and down-to-earth at once, dark (bordering on disturbing even: it deals with madness, suicide, and child abuse) yet filled with hope, and has some nice romantic and funny moments as well. Plus, the mangaka knows how to draw human bodies and backgrounds and details when they're needed (you can notice her skills even more so in her recent *seinen* titles, like ES and Cesare). Last but not least, she can delineate multi-faceted personalities and rise important issues in a not-preachy way.
[edit by mod, Small hint ahead, could possible be a spoiler]
If there are cons - but I'm really nitpicking as a reader who went through tons of manga- ... some of the plot-twists seemed a bit too... calculated (is this the right word in English, I wonder), especially in the very last volume: I thought I could hear Souryo-san saying " we need something to pick up the tension just before the end, so let's summon that X psycho character back to mess things up again", and BAM, here the mess happens (you'll see when you read it ;) ). But even in that case it was pulled out well and allowed the plot and introspection to go further a notch. Again, it's the way some topics and clichès are handled that mark the difference in quality. And Mars delivers excellent quality on basically all fronts.
I'd recommend it both to male and female readers, unless you're thrown off by the sensitive topics I mentioned above.

It's pretty good. The girl started out as one I really liked. I still like her, but sometimes she's just really digging her own grave. Other than that, I really like this story. I've been avoiding this story for so long for some odd reason, and when I finally downloaded it out of boredom, I was happy I did. ^^

The arts doesn't appeal to me until i actually open the book and read them. Not much of a thing at first and i thought it would be horror thanks to the title o_O. But it is an amazingly sweet story and very erm.. life-style. love it biggrin

I mostly prefer reading seinen, but occasionally I'll pick up a josei manga. In this case, I'm really glad I gave Mars a try. It's got such a light touch, and surprising depth... It really is a fantastic romance, and I do mean a REAL romance, deep and thoughtful and moving, not just a childish crush sort of scenario. (I feel almost embarrassed saying all this, because usually I'm about the blood and the gore and the psychological perversity -- but in this case the beauty of the manga just drew me in.)

My other favorite by Souryo Fuyumi is Eternal Sabbath, which is seinen... I honestly didn't know until now that Souryo sensei had such a different style when it came to shoujo/josei. The art in Mars is really, really different than her art in her later works. It isn't as delicate or as sophisticated, but still a damn sight more polished and expressive than most of the art out there.

Don't miss out on this manga. It's really beautiful.

i really couldn't identify or bond with any of the characters and the story didn't pull me in at all. im sorry i thought it was horrible. but don't take me too seriously, i hardly like any shoujo manga.
