Description
A schoolgirl who was adopted by a family experiences hardships at school and home. Her foster family treats her as Reika, their daughter who had died a couple years ago. Suddenly, her real blood-related brother appears before her, who has been searching for her for years. Now her life is turned upside down. Will she learn to trust other people again?

Flower of Eden was slated for release on January 2006 by TokyoPop, but was cancelled after author Yuki Suetsugu admitted to copying numerous panels from Inoue Takehiko's manga titles Slam Dunk and REAL. Kodansha has ceased distribution of all 12-volumes of Eden no Hana.

Wow...I was literally crying out "WTF!?" the entire time I was reading this...and I literally COULDN'T STOP MYSELF FROM READING THIS IN ONE STRAIGHT SITTING (not to mention download the raws for the last volume). I'd have to say that the best part of this manga are the character's relationships with each other. There are a lot of big decisions to make in this manga and I love how each character handles them. All in all, great manga that keeps you engaged the entire way and won't let you stop before you finish it! biggrin

FYI, if you're not into storylines dealing with sexual abuse, I noticed that this manga does not dwell on it at all...so read it!

Struck a Cord

Eden no Hana is one of those stories that can be frustrating at times, but heartwarming most of the time.The frustrating aspect of this manga for me was the fact that most of the characters were indecisive about who and/or what they wanted.

But, I could tolerate all of that because this manga was essentially very heartwarming and it struck a cord somewhere in my heart---it's like the author was writing a story more about the sentimental aspects of relationships than the drama of it all.

[spoiler] What really frustrated me after I finished an unfinished story was the fact that the manga was discontinued because the author plagiarized panels from other works.That in itself was very upsetting because the story seemed real and believable, but the ending seemed rushed and inconclusive---it's too bad! After 40 chapters, you'd think we'd actually get some physical romance between Midori and Tokio, seeing as there was so much sexual tension throughout the manga ='[ [/spoiler]

Sorry radnip, but you're wrong

Sexual abuse is not legal in Japan. The only reason Midori's abusive adopted brother didn't get sent to jail is because she didn't tell the authorities. Rapists get away with rape and sexual abusive all over the place, in America too, and that doesn't mean it's legal.

Also, Midori is not a stupid helpless chick. The fact that radnip categorizes her as one is very insulting. She was abused and raped; of course she's gonna be somewhat broken after that. On the contrary. I think she's actually incredibly strong to be able to endure all of that and still move on and try to live a normal life.

Sure she's not supergirl who weighs 90 pounds and can beat up 300 pound guys. That's because this story is realistic. No one who ways 90 pounds in this story goes around beating up 300 pound guys. But even though none of the people in this story is super physical, they all have strong personalities, which, I think, is more important. Midori especially has a very strong personality and she doesn't have a problem with telling Tokio off when he's being stupid (their relationship is so much fun)

Anyway, aside from that.

The plotline of this story is very interesting, as long as you can deal with incestuous themes, and the mystery of the past is extremely intriguing. Very nice balance of lightness and comedy and darkness and tragedy.

The art is lovely. I'd give it maybe a 9 or a 9.5 out of 10.

The characters are interesting and different from each other, and their relationships with each other are complex.

Overall, this is definitely worth reading. And by the way, for those of you who think the story wasn't finished, it was. All twelve volumes have been published, and so far eleven of them have been scanlated in English.

I was seriously on a roller coaster on this one. The art is beautiful, and the Midori in the beginning is strongly reminiscent of that girl from Bitter Virgin. Then her brother saves her and they get serious brother/sister complexes. As a fan of incest manga, I find myself really enjoying this series. I don't care that the mangaka was caught for ripping off Inoue Takehiko's art. I'm following this series till the bitter end.

Well done, but legal sexual abuse in Japan very annoying!

First, I have no clue whether sexual abuse is or is not legal in Japan and I do not know whether the victim's name is or is not protected. In either case, this story says it's not, that the abuser gets to do pretty much what he wants, and that there are a lot of other abetters of sexual abuse in that country. I found that to be a very annoying aspect of the story.

2nd, there's only so much stupid, weak, helpless chick I can stand (2 volumes) before I say this is a story for guys who like helpless chicks. As a chick who hates helpless chicks stories, I'm done with the story. I'll go back to reading about 90-lb chicks who can beat up 300-lb guys smile

Discontinued.

i just finished reading off whats translated so far and i gotta say its fantastic, its like what i read in a review (i think it was here) that its more like a Josei rather than a shojou.. and i gotta say i agree with them.

Its got a good pace and it hasent got any typical shojou tendancies (although i hope they stick to the whole main girl x main guy tendancy in there) all the characters are fantastic including the main girl herself and that glasses boy to (forgot his name) he is such a sweet heart... Tokio to... and Masamune just rocks as well XDDD (gotta love the joke in chapter one.)

Anyways i totally reccomend this to anybody who has a civil mind.

Also.. i hope things go well for Tokio in the end...

I've read the first 5 volumes of this story and I've loved it. Its very unfortunate about the controversy surrounding this series meaning it will never be completed sad

In any case, really well paced story. I adore Tokio, hope he gets his girl biggrin Midori, while not particularly likeable herself, has a lot of depth and interesting dark backstory, she stands as a good contrast to her brother. Midori is starting to grow on me.
I also love the other brother and sister (Tokio's adopted family) I forget the names! But they really make me laugh. I really really want to read the rest of this story!
