This manga was very short and light hearted but it was slightly more entertaining than a very typical shoujo manga because of it's very funny and cute points. The male lead errs on the side of handsome - a little childish, unkempt, and observant - and his funny small gestures helped to keep the story interesting. The plot gets convoluted when the love triangles start (they're not very good) and the story was nothing epic, but it was cute in it's own way.

It started off pretty good, both in terms of plot and art. The plot was that of a typical shoujo. The art wasn't very detailed but the characters were well drawn. The main characters was not likable at all in my opinion. The second volume says it all. Her unfaithfulness was blamed on her insecurity, but still, it feels like her feelings for the main guy was extremely weak. It's almost like today I wanna marry this guy, tomorrow I'm getting back with my ex kinda feeling. It pisses me off. And the reconciliation was so unbelievably unbelievable. Then the whole time jumping thing in the third volume was like so out of nowhere, I mean, what the heck, it was like a whole different manga. The ending also could've been more grand.
It wasn't a bad manga. But i would rather read a cliche manga without this kind of drama.

Now that i reread the end of second volume and the beginning of third volume, I just want to decrease my rating for this manga, so frustrating. =.=

Like the have say before, to enjoy and to not get confuse you need to read the manga in one go, only 14 chapter. Is really cute but really unreal, just read this for a light read or if you are new in manga.
In the end you won't regret it because you know what you are going to get.
is a very good manga you need to enjoy it.

Well, this was an average shoujo manga. It has flaws, but can still entertain shoujo fans.

I didn't particularly like either Yukiya or Maiko. Especially Maiko, notably because of how she dealt with the love triangle with Yukiya and Shizuru. She did some pretty unfaithful things that shouldn't be excused with insecurity.

Worth a read I guess, but there are a lot of better shoujo mangas out there.

its ok. i guess if was really disappointing and it made me really angsty through the whole thing. the ending wasent long enough and was also very disappointing for all that drama i expected a kick ass ending not that is was bad. but it certainly wasn't great. if you want to waste a lot of time then defiantly read it. but i just feel that it was a bit of a waste. i dont regret it but it was a bit of a waste.

The second time!

This is actually my second time reading this manga. I remember picking it up a couple years ago, reading the first chapter, and then forgetting about it. Now it's fully scanslated, and I'm glad I picked it up again. Despite being categorized as smut, Soryanaize Darling focuses more on how love always prevails. Cheesy, yes? But don't let that deter you.
The main character, Maiko, isn't the traditional shoujo heroine (although she does have some very shoujo-esque characteristics). Due to the 3-volume limit of the series, yes, she does fall in love rather quickly. But. The decisions she makes during the course of the manga show that her mind set is much more mature than the traditional shoujo heroine's. It's really hard to dislike her. Nagase's a hybrid of several stock characters. Nothing hugely significant about him (although he has quite a few more layers than the average shoujo hero). Shizuru (the alternate male lead) is quite lovable. Although you'll probably find yourself leaning towards Nagase-Maiko, you can't help but cheer for the valiant Shizuru. The supporting characters are fine. Nothing to get excited about, but they don't ruin the story either.
The plot of the manga is quite interesting. Traditional shoujo live-in situation with a time-traveling twist. I'm not going to lie, the time-traveling bit gets a little heavy near the end of the manga, but I can understand why the mangaka decided to use it. Most of the conflict in the plot stems from Nagase and Maiko's uncertainty about their relationship, and that was the main focus of the manga. For me, the best part of the manga was when Nagase, Maiko, and Touya were living as a makeshift family. Really a cute bit.
The art's nice. The setting's average. No real complaints as far as art goes. Maiko's overexaggerated chibi expressions are pretty great.
Overall, it's a nice, warm-your-heart, fluffy shoujo piece. It doesn't delve into any serious issues. It doesn't bring anything new to the table. But it's cute. Don't expect anything more, and you'll leave the manga with warm fuzzies.

This manga was really entertaining. The characters were good, the art was good and the idea was really interesting. (Though the first time I read it I didn't enjoy it as much)
There were some parts that I wish the mangaka hadn't put in there such as the part with Shizuru san or whatever his name is. I felt really sorry for him.
And the most disappointing thing was the abrupt end.
But it was a feel good manga so I recommend it biggrin

Loooved this manga. Sometimes the story comes and goes so many times that you need to stop for a while and think how things are happening because there is this "paranormal" factor that makes things a bit more complicated to understand.

I loved the art, one of my favourite main male characters... absolutely adorable, I found myself some days after I have read this drawing him in my notebooks during a specially boring class.

It's a pity that it is so short but it's absolutely worth reading. ^^

The art is nice, at times it looks like someone else drew it coz it looks so different, but i liked it.

the story is nice too, but i think it got more complicated than it needed to be. the whole psychic powers, traveling in time, was a total turn off.... i think it was just a tool to make it a happy ending for all the characters... which is annoying, but still.... a nice read

I liked this: it was really sweet and funny, while at the same time some moments tugged on your heartstrings. What I truly loved were the twists; they were actually surprising and well pulled-off.
But the art (while beautiful) got sloppy at frequent intervals. And while the ending was happy and a reasonable ending as endings go, it just felt anticlimactic.

Conclusion: Sweet with beautiful art (even if it occasionally got sloppy). Perfect for a decent-sized light read and a quick smut fix.
