Description
From Viz:

After her parents divorce, Anna Uekusa and her mother move from Tokyo to rural Shimane. Used to the anonymity of city living, An can't get used to the almost overbearing kindness of the people in her mother's hometown. But when personal tragedy strikes, An discovers how much she needs that kindness.

Note: Won the 50th Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo manga in 2005 and was adapted into a movie in 2008.

a very interesting and real manga...it started as a shoujo genre, but at this rate, it'll finish as a josei genre, in my opinion...light-hearted romance and a bit of comedy

Sunadokei is sentimental, melancholy, and introspective. I love the tone of the story, but the plot was rather forgettable.

The ending felt rushed and forced, it wasn't very convincing even though it was a fairytale ending which I had hoped for.

A little cliche at times, but reads well and certainly involves a level of character development. I like who Ann, Daigo, Fuji, and Shika become by the end of the series. They're older and wiser and lament over their decisions less often.

I do wish Ann was less of a stereotypical ditz, though.

yes reallistic and dramatic i understand why peaple like it, but still i read manga so i can escape harsh reallity of life from time to time, but this just bring me right back at it , cant stand it, i just seem like its too heart breaking. i couldnt read it after the first volume. well some people like this stuff a lot. its interesting how some people read manga to feel hard emotions and some to escape from them, mmm perhaps i should start a topic about this... je

finally got around to finishing this thanks to later volume scans, viva google.
how nice would it be if people with mutual feelings could weather all. fact is they can't, life gets in the way. deep stuff. always remember, people's feeling are a witch, and life is all curveballs - people act out of character and no matter how deep sometimes you have to grow apart to come together.

This manga to me just seems to be the type that I start reading and start out to really enjoy then it becomes a little too hard to read. Nothing really all too good ever seems to happen. It's just one drama after another.
In the end it seems like the kind of manga that I quit reading then read the end just to see how it turns out.

who's better, Daigo or Fuji ?

honestly, for me Sand Chronicle is one of the best manga that i ever had. it's give a lesson. it's not over a wasted love story but also show the struggle..

and, back to my topic.
Daigo is a gentleman, kind, and protective. He is honest too.
Fuji is a kind, care, and helpful.

Sometimes, if i dream about Daigo it can be happy. But, Fuji is kind too. Ah ! I don't know who's better but if i can choose one, maybe i would like to choose Daigo.. *LOL

by the end of volume four. Characters act out of character, they all blame, accuse and scheme.. all what made the first volumes fun and lighthearted turned into stupid nonsensical drama, real shallow.
