I was never actually going to make an account on this website because really I never thought I had anything important to say, but then I came across this page about Koizora. I've seen the drama and part of the movie and was curious about the manga for it. From what I've read people don't seem to like it that much. plus most people who have yet to read this have only seen the movie. I do not know if the manga is any good and I do not plan to find out anytime soon. What I do know is that the movie is horrible if I had watch the movie before watching the drama I probably would have hated Koizora and tell people that the story is too sad and hiro is not all that great. but I luckily found the drama first. Its about 6 episodes long an hour each, but Its great, plus the actor that plays hiro is really cute!! smile I absolutely love hiro and was so pissed when in the movie hiro:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in the movie after he sleeps with mika he actually says his ex girlfriends name in his sleep


this does not happen in the drama thank god.

one thing I liked especially in the drama was:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she doesn't get raped in the drama, hiro saves her in time. plus he was actually thinking of killing his ex because of the whole thing. you can just tell how much he loves her. plus u see how much she loves him


In the drama you can really see how much hiro cares about her and loves her. Yes their is still a whole lot of drama and sad stuff that happens, but if your willing to watch a tragic love story then please give the drama a try. Even though after watching this I just sat their staring at the screen crying, every time I think about this drama I feel my heart ache but i do smile. i really loved this drama you know. I was completely head over heels for hiro and still am in a way smile but please again I warn you stay away from the movie at all costs. just in case you want to check it out heres the link

sorry if this comes out wrong I'm just starting to use the codes.

this site also has the movie if your curious, but please watch the 6 episode drama first.

Big spoiler do not read unless watched or knows what is going to happen anyway.

mika doesn't cause harm to herself in the drama and though sad stuff does happen hiro is always their for her and loves her very much, so much he went to her house every day begging mika's parents to accept him. he even changed his appearance to make them accept him better. the whole thing about hiro betraying mika after discovering he has cancer does happen, but her friend was half a sleep and they did not run off together plus she was kissed by her friends boyfriend too right after. sure hiro was harsh to her afterwords but he just didn't want her to suffer anymore. (i do not agree with what he did though, but his reasons were not wrong or not thought out) he really loved her and in the drama he did brake and was going to patch things up with her and tell her the truth because he loved her and missed her so much, but she was with another guy (only for tutoring) hiro misunderstood i think, but he saw how happy she was with that guy and new that no matter how much he loved her and wanted to steal her away for himself. he was going to die and leave her in pain and this guy there was making her smile and could be with her a lot longer then he could. It was hard on him too. anyway they do meet up again and the ending is really sad yet touching (just so you know if your being bad and reading the spoiler without watching the drama.) I thought it was really sweet that all the photos were of her and the little wedding they had and even though he was at the end of his life he still saw her. they spent the last second of his life with each other even though she wasn't even in the same room as him. I also think he saved her in the end even after he was gone. watch it if you haven't and you'll understand.


I highly recommend this!! the drama version!!

You have to be able to love tragedies if you want to read this. Mika gets hurt a lot throughout the manga and Hiro is responsible for most of it. But if that's not your cup of tea or your bowl of rice, then read something else. In the end this is a romance with a sad ending, while 90% of the theme of their romance is saddening as well.

I haven't actually seen the drama/movie yet so this review is purely based on the manga.

Personally I found it average. The pacing was a bit obscure, I felt the plot was on a fast forward button that left no time to develop an attachment to the main pair and then kind of slowed down up to a point where it was getting near the point of painfully slow. And then it ended on a cliffhanger (though you can see where this is going even without watching the drama or movie).

Actual content wise... personally I felt it got seriously unrealistic. The start of the relationship was quite rushed (perhaps due to the pacing) and I felt like they barely knew each other before she got pregnant.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
AND THEN IT GOES HAYWIRE. So okay, she's miscarried and self harmed once and somewhere along the line he works out he's got cancer? Perhaps it could excuse the going back to drugs, but it certainly does not excuse the coercion of Mika to perform sexual acts and burn herself with a cigarette under the ruse of going back together with her and then deciding not to. And bearing in mind he knows his girlfriend has just gone through all this suffering and has previously self harmed so clearly isn't in a strong state - I do not see how it could be 'love' or a need to 'protect her' that drove him to severe the relationship but leaving lingering threads and run off with one of her close friends (well, okay so the friend was kind of there to steal her boyfriend) and just leave her with no explanation. I don't know about you but I think breaking the relationship off in amicable terms would have been fairer. And then the whole being with Yuu and not forgetting about this horrible ex of hers. So okay the manga left it at hinting Hiro is dying but to be honest it seemed Hiro was pretty much a backup character from early on in the story and it seems preposterous that Mika would then break up with Yuu to stick to Hiro after all this pain as I believe the drama or movie portrays it (reading forums). Sure if it was just on amicable terms it's understandable but who would want to get back with that kind of nightmare?


To me there wasn't enough emotion tied to such a complicated plotline. It felt like the author shoved Mika on a road and then flung whatever miserable event she could think of at her without developing any of these occurances or new characters and then tries to link it to the original idea.

Perhaps the movie or drama is better - if I get round to watching it I'll edit this. But certainly this seems like a story that had potential but was kind of mangled along the way.

Would have been an absolute perfect love story if Hiro would have recoverd from cancer ( Not everyone dies of cancer their are tens of thousands who beat it live with it ans survive for years to come) After he recovered he returned to woe the love of his life Mika and they had a little girl together. Or even if he went into remission, they got back together had a kid then it sificed again and he died. Atleast i wouldn't feel so much regret and loss. it just missing something.

I loved this. I really did. I identified with it so much: the drugs, the disease, the rape. Pretty much everything is in this drama and it's not overpacked. It's well done. And I see people hatin' on the manga, so man, if this isn't good, then the live action must be amazing. There wasn't one character I didn't like and the art is gorgeous. Thank god the plot wasn't over complicated or messy. It flowed beautifully.

Like most readers, I had finished both the movie and drama before starting on the manga version. I am an exceptionally huge fan of Koizora and I collect everything possibly linked to this beautiful story. In the beginning, I really didn't like how Mika was in the manga too. She was too ordinary and Hiro was just meaner; both characters differ from what I'd expected. But actually, I'm quite sure this is the ACTUAL version of Koizora (discovered that in the novel versions, which is supposedly the real, correct version of the mobile story).
Haneda had really followed the novel ver. of this, which explains the difference between the movie and drama. The movie is amazing yes but those were 'beautified' versions of Hiro and Mika, where the popular bad boy & and pretty girl gets together. Besides, they can't possibly fit in a whole bunch of missing details in just 2hrs+. I found the manga ver more real, despite the certain brutality, semi-nude scenes and slight long winded-ness. The story still remains as a tear-jerker but it's kinda sad the manga version will pretty much never match up to the highly publicized movie. It's still pretty good though, not the art style but the plot(:

This series had me gripped all the way through chapter 19. I couldn't find the last few chapters anywhere, so I found and watched the movie. After watching the movie from roughly the point that chapter 19 ends and I got to say, Mika becomes less sympathetic in my eyes even after finding out the reasons for Hiro's actions. In my opinion Yuu is the only sympathetic character around Mika.

Well, until now I didn't know that there is a drama/movie about Koizora and I didn't read any comments about. That's why I started reading it very unprejudieced. But well...don't read the comment below mine if you're not so far yet! It's a spoiler PoshSam x[
So...I reeeeally adore this manga! It's long ago since I've cried for a heroine in a manga but actually I did for Mika...! When I finished the manga I want to watch the drama/movie and it may sweep me off my feet if you all say that the manga in comparison is bad xD Well, I LOVE this manga

whats up with the movie koizora that made everyone fall in love with it? i watched half of the movie and throughout i keep thinking that the main guy is a dick. he tells the main girl what to do and is all edward cullen when it comes to her, like manipulating her emotions and making all the decisions, the only thing i liked was the part where he went to the temple to pray for their endangered unborn child, that was pretty freakin sweet other than that, he's well annoying.
