This manga means a lot to me because it was the series that got me into buying manga. Mars is very much a teenage soap opera with drama on every page. The art is great the story is great and it has a short list of characters making it easy to follow. The characters grow and discover what is important to them and over come many of there personal problems. I recommend this comic to anyone that likes romantic/shojo/drama.

i've just finished this manga and all i can say is..why didnt i come across it sooner!its really nice..i really like the main characters.Rei and Kira are so sweet together.ah true love.aside from love,there are some disturbing plots like suicide,mental sickness,the usual dark stuff.so this series is definitely not your fluffy shoujo manga.

I've always held the opinion that Mars is one of-if not the-best shoujo mangas out there. I intend to reread it very soon.

the reality and heavy topics really got me.
there were funny moments,
the heavier stuff always seemed to weigh it down,
making it the perfect balance.
it started out just like any other manga,
but every volume stacked up the goodness,
making it worthwhile.

this is another one of my favorites. I like how you get to see characters develop and deal with their issues. It deals with a lot of emotions which I thought was one of the reason i wanted to keep reading. I really liked the characters too. haha

This could be well placed under the tragedy category. I'm growing tired of stories filled with endless disgrace for solely dramatic purpose. A story can be dramaticaly intense without having to go overboard, but in this case the author clearly wants to be dramatic tossing every dramatic tool at hand: so far we have suicide, murder, rape, emotional trauma, family issues, psychological disorder, etc etc... Cheap. I guess I'm far from done searching for a nicely written drama.

...,imo, is absolutely fantastic! unlike other mangas, i feel like the characters are alive, and the eyes are especially detailed.

of course, the plot is superb, too, so i strongly suggest reading it.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
this manga is just so stupid, I don't understand those of you who valued it up to even 6 above ! wthey? it's so bad, predictable, no drama at all. I mean, come on in the real world no guy like REI would even notice a girl like KIRA though she's pretty, doesn't mean he'll make a move cause all his mates might think of him as a douchebag who likes lame-ass girls. come on you guys, there is nothing good about this manga at all. i have wanted to stop since vol.4! but I thought "I'd give you another chance" I was ITCHING to stop on vol.5 but now that i have red vol.6 I have decided. THATS IT, this manga is not worth the time of my life. sooo bad, well if you like these sort of stuff sure, whatever. it's just so predictable, too much sugar i mean I WANT DRAMA, i want both to suffer just to give a better scene at the end of the suffering! do you get what I mean? i love mangas like bokura ga ita, vitamin, hana yori dango, those ones that shows REAL TOUGH CHICKS, unlike this sissy lolita who cries and cries and cries like a loser she is and he'd always be there to RESCUE HER. The characters show NO DEVELOPMENT whatsoever, you hate them even more. i liked kira in the beginning since she showed will power and passion for art, own principle and resistance towards men, but COME ON, 2 secs later she started falling in love for him I mean WHAT IS THAT, the mangaka should really consider some strong background establishment on the characters. TOTALLY LAME MANGA I HATE IT SO MUCH

Ps I am sorry for those who actually liked it, i dont mean to tease your taste in mangas im just saying that this manga doesn't suit my taste. so I apologize for my french, I'm just so peeved.

SEE YA,

this manga is incredible!!! the progression of the story was perfect* and the characters were well developed! this is a highly recommended manga, you will regret not reading it. The art is good too. This manga is one of those deep manga's such as kare kano, fruits basket..etc.. but this is more realistic and slice of life. all i can say is that.. this manga is incredible smile *you should also watch the drama*
