It's pure love from the beginning to the end.

The author portraits with maestry the universve that we confine inside ourselves... and with extreme accurateness, she captures the subtilty of the nuances of a human soul... Our fears, our desires, the secrets we don't confess even to ourselves... our selfishness, our lack of humanity and our need for love and salvation...

Whoever start reading this story, will get deeply attached to the main characters, a kind soul and a troublemaker: the perfect couple. We might think at the beginning that Rei is the one protecting Kira, but when you read this, you realize that Rei is the one asking for redemption.

It's pure love from the beginning to the end.

MARS was great, but it felt like it went on too long, and the ending was waaay too abrupt. I liked it and all, but there was just... something... that kept it from being perfect, as far as I'm concerned at least.

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

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 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
