Nagakawa Shinichi and Sanada Yuuki both get involved in an accident and die together, but they are given a chance to live again. A voice lets them survive for seven more days. However, after the time limit, one of the two must die again.
Also, their lives will be shared, including emotions (guilt) and physical sensations (pain). They are told not to leave the other's side, else both of them will die. Now, with each of them wanting to save his/her own life, how will the next seven days of non-separation be like? Will they get along?

Damn it really hurt. I hate tragedies, but I loved this one, though it should have been longer and the characters further developed.
Btw I really like billy111786 idea.

I was expecting a lot more from this story. Seven days together with someone that can have no secrets and can’t leave you side and this is the entire story we get? The artist loves to draw and paint, really?!?

If that is the limit to the depth of understanding a person is able to experience when connected to someone so intimately it is possible to feel every emotion a person has than what a waste. Maybe I am unique but I am able to learn this level of “understanding” from conversations with co-workers who I have a hard time remembering their last name.

I think this story deserves at least seven chapters (one for each day).

another captivating romance-type of manga. the story itself will move you to tears. as you would expect from Seo, each scenes will enlighten you to appreciate the real beauty of true love. Love in the very essence, is sacred. and the story shows how a person will go all the way for the sake of ones love. It will be interesting if the manga will be adopted into a series. It may surpassed the stories Seo have created so far.

Mixed feelings after reading this. Although I tried to stay away because I dislike tragedies, I went onto a manga site and clicked the RANDOM MANGA button. It gave me this.
I read it. Interesting plot. Average read, not bad.

I don't think it was a tragedy, since they got to meet each other.
Though one of them did die, they had enough love to last forever. Just as she said, that was God's gift to them before one of them died.

wrong decision of choosing the guy to live instead her... because she knew already she was dying....
she should have told the guy her situation then sacrificing the guy fir her then after half of a year she will eventually die.. then they will meet up soon in heaven...

cheezy but practical/.....LOL

While i agree with Monkey about the story being short and simple, I don't agree with the twist at the end. Its was somewhat predictable, but that isnt what i had a problem with. What i had a problem with was
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The cliche part of "I feel ___ when im ____".

Other than that, and the somewhat predictable end, It was a good read.

A Good Short Story

I really liked this. The story is short and simple, but has an interesting twist at the end. The artwork is good, the characters are likeable, and it even made me stop for a minute to think about how much companionship and love really means in our lives. I wouldn't call Half & Half "brilliant", but I would recommend it as a great read to anyone looking for a short story.
