So, I didn't see the intensity that everyone was talking about. Maybe it's because I've read way more intense works. I did like the story however. I thought that it was sad and emotions were tangled and unclear. But not as dark as I was expecting it to be. It was good :-)

That was an intense one...

People who complain about Seika not being old enough or being in jr high probably didn't really read this manga thouroughly enough - it's clearly said that she is 16 and thus she is 1st year in highschool - even Akiharu keeps constantly talking about highschool ... so far to that topic

All in all I really liked this manga eventhough the end was kind of to be expected.
The tragedy really boosted the intense factor which made me impatient of whats happening next and I couldn't stop reading until the end.
I recommend it for people who are looking for a shorter story which is a bit more exciting and heart throbbing.

Okay, so before reading the actual series, I briefly scanned over the comments here, and I was actually expecting some sort of really disturbing, near horror manga. But of course it never turned out to be that. It's not especially psychologically too sick/disturbing either. In fact, I wish the author had gone even further with Akiharu's creepy fascination with Seika's physical features (artwork looked pretty scary, especially in the beginning). Honestly I thought the plot was really going somewhere along the line of Psycho or The Picture of Dorian Gray, but no, those parts that were mentioned never developed/explored in the plot (-_-) Instead I eventually just get tired out by all the false alarms. Silly couple. Silly, silly couple.

I am still not sure if they're pure or sick. They act normal. The guy is like the perfect boyfriend and she is a perfect girl. It's just... off. Also the twisted and strange mentality being described here is being perfectly off set by morie satoshi's clean, white style. This just threw me from one emotion to the next. I've never felt so yanked around.

I can't shake the feeling of fragility in their relationship. It's like the whole thing could collapse into some mutual destructive depression. If she ever left him I can't see either one recovering and, frankly, there are some yandere tendencies going on that I don't like at all.

See? This is what this manga did to me. I'm over half-convinced those two are real people. I can't even concentrate on the words or art or anything because those two characters have me watching their every move. I can't think. It's like I don't even have to. They don't need me or their story. They only need each other. It's creepy.

This is a really demented couple. Seriously. But, then again, I still read the whole thing. Maybe it's because it barely stayed below the disturbing line I've drawn. Or maybe I found this couple so strange that I had to see how it all would work out...

i was all like wow...

its so deep...the meaning is soooooo...it has enough substance and meaning to make up a series...wait...woooow...

you really have to read this its sooo beautiful...

i really have to give this a 10!!!!

<edit>

so basically this is a oneshot turned series.. i have read this before so i was incredibly surprised to found out that this turned into a series.. and after reading this i dont know if i should be happy about that or not.. the thing about this manga is that it can be incredibly dark and over shoujo flowery- fluffy at times and i guess thats something to like.. and also Seika-chan, i dont get what she is! its like she was so plain! i mean.. she just lets him do this and that to her.. and nothing she just gets along with it.. shes weird as well.. and as for Akiharu hes a unique character.. so that revives the point for the plain heroine.. i guess.. my rating used to be a 10/10 but know i guess that turning it into a series just dragged it.. im gonna make it 8/10

If I wouldn't have rated this manga with ten points already, I would have definetly raised my rating after reading some of the comments on this side.

a) She doesn't even LOOK like a 12, 13 year old. She does look a little bit young, but not enough to make it all disturbing. Stop ranting about it, it's ridiculous. If we would have never known the age of our main chara, nobody would make a fuss about it! He doesn't look like a 24 year old guy anyway...and the girl is 16, o come on. Which obviously brings me to point b.
b) Age Difference. How come nobody is fussing over it in Skip Beat, but here in Hakuji?
c) Molesting, pervert, etc. He's an artist, not your usual perfect I-will-always-protect-you-just-for-a-kiss-high-school-prince straight out of so many shoujo mangas. Meaning, it's realistic. Although the mangaka really focused more on that element, I admit that. But come on, it's not a smut manga (at least I won't count it as one) and by no far a hentai. Seinen is also a lot worse, so stop it. Focusing on that... can't you focus on the STORY? Or the ART? Or maybe also the CHARACTERS?

The art is - I have to admit that - only better than average. It gets better later on though, and it's still very pretty to look on. The story is very interesting, also because of the psychological factor. Characters are also very likeable, but the focus is on the two main characters. I wished others would have been involved more, but then again it wouldn't have stopped at two volumes.
I loved the artist element. It's an original part in a way, and I would have liked to see more about it. About his life as an artist, how he thinks about various things... but then again, I repeat, two volumes. And people who aren't really into art would be annoyed, so nevermind wink
Their relationship of those two was really sweet. The plot moves fast, but not too fast, and it's really okay! It doesn't posess much depth, but it's very entertaining. I enjoyed it ^^ I'll look forward to the final chapter and the extra!

This manga was really great. It had deep meaning even though it was a shoujo manga.
Art was really pretty, and I liked it. I don't understand how people were like, " EHMAHGAWD. HES HAVING DIRTY THOUGHTS, THATS NOT SHOUJO, THATS TOTALLY NOT CUTE. HES A PERV.". It's bothering me how they really don't understand deep meanings to this.
NO, SHE DID NOT FREAKIN GET MOLESTED. SHES LIKE IN HIGH SCHOOL. She's about same height as him. And she kissed him too, remember? NO, HE IS NOT A PERVERT. He was just confused because he is still like a child when he's 20. What did you guys read? It was all freakin explained in the story. It's not creepy at all. It's just not the usual kind of "a high school girl & a boy falling in love, having a love triangle, boy tells girl he loves her, end of story" shoujo thing. It has actually a unique 'deep' meaning to the story. So I guess if you are a girl or a boy who just likes to read those sweet little romance shoujos, I wouldn't recommend this. If you like a unique story with a deep meanings and psychology, I definitely recommend this to you. I just wish this manga was longer.

First of all, Seika is not 12 or 13 years old. If you read the releases properly, you'll be able to read in a chapter somewhere that Seika is 16 or so. Also, this manga is not creepy at all. It expresses Akiharu's thoughts, and... well, we can say that he is mentally underdeveloped since he was stuck inside painting for many years of his life. Many artists use different kinds of methods on how to be able to know/feel what their subject is feeling to be able to express it properly on canvas. It just so happens that Akiharu needs to touch Seika, but it's not like he's taking advantage of her. It's a mutual thing.

As far as art goes, I think it's very pleasing to the eyes. It also matches the story very well. I've never read a manga like this before, so I think it's pretty original--- plot-wise. The characters are well-made too, each character can stand on its own and has their own personalities. All in all, bias aside, I think this manga is a good read. It only has 6 chapters, but it's definitely worth the read. It's not creepy at all.

I thought the story was alright, and the first chapter had a lot more depth than the ones that followed it. I'd give it a 9 because i really enjoyed the first chapter, even if the next ones didn't excite me as much. and i kind like the artwork. dunno why. also, to clear things up about a comment made by ChiirokoChan, the girl's in high school, not junior high. she's like around 16, probably? not 12. because i agree, 12-13 would have been really creepy.
