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.

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*

This was the first manga i ever read and it is still my favorate. I love this manga sooo much. The story was just good, i wish that they made a drama for it in Japan i know there is one in Taiwan but i can't understand Cantonies. I wish i could learn... but oh well. 2 languages is enough for my brain... but ANYWAYS, Mars is such a good manga with a good story great charicters and a sensational love story. awww.... Kira and Rei are sooo great together, i wish Mars never ended. ;(

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.

A deppley intriuging and moving manga. The mangaka deals with some difficult and confronting issues, whilst still keeping the flow of the story. I was unhappy with the flow and the focus on Rei round about volume 5... but then kira soon got her chance in the lime light so i was happy!

I laughed, i cried, i recommend it!

This is the manga that made me love manga. Rei and Kira are realistic (as are the people around them). Yes, there is a bit of drama--but the good kind; it's not melodrama.

Kira's reaction to being raped by her stepfather is incredibly realistic, as well. She seems to almost disassociate herself from her peers. I also love the symmetry of how her first sexual experience with someone she loves seems to bring her out of that disassociative state.

this manga is sophisticated, romantic to the appropriate extend, funny, balanced, smart, interesting, and so much more...the relationships are very well-developed...the characters were explored in each of their own way, so that in the end, you can't help but love them all (even the bastardly antagonist)'s mellow, strong, sad, joyous, and completed on so many levels.....this is one of those manga that once finished, you have to let out a satisfying sigh, feeling completely full-filled, yet still lingering a sense of wanting for more.....this just an amazing of the rare fews that actually teaches you something about life....
