Everytime I read this manga, or watch the anime, or listen to the music.. it always has an effect on me. I absolutely love this series. It has cuteness, comedy, sadness, battles (of sorts), and it is a soul satisfying diversion.
This series is one of a very rare few that is a must read for me, right up there with Ranma (Favorite), Aishithiteruze Baby, and others. Different genres, but classics none the less.

I've purchased all the books for full moon, I'd watched the anime first then decided to read the manga which was a smart choice. The story is much more detailed and you understand the characters more when you read it. I couldn't help but fall in love with the Shinigami (especially Takuto ^^) Her drawings are really detailed and cute.
I couldn't help though get depressed sometimes when reading and end up crying in the sad parts. Mitsuki is such a troubled person for a 12 year old >< I dont ever remembering my life to be that troublesome, but I'm pretty easy going lol. Anyway by the end I felt so bad for Ecchi ( I didnt like him to start, I was routing for Takuto), his story was too sad T.T Though I felt the ending to be a bit empty, for me anyway, but i couldn't really see it go for longer then it did, but glad it was happy ^o^ I was glad there were characters like Johnathon and Izumi, funny =) they gave it some life to the story.^^ All the characters just worked well together.
Even though it was quite sad, it was also funny and cute ^^ I would reckonmend it to anyone who likes Arina's art/manga and anyone for a cute story. I really enjoyed this work, so give it a try =)

The plot is actually pretty good considering the fact that the story is targeted for 13-15 year olds. The main character takes on similar characteristics of all other female leads of Arina's manga. They keep a strong front, when they're weak inside. But I'd say Arina gives the best interpretation of this particular female lead's emotions. If you're looking for a cute story, this is the one I would suggest.
Because, let's face it, the manga that she's written after this one all suck.

I was very skeptical about the manga, usually music/singing subjects in manga or comics are poorly done because of the lack of sound to help set the mood. But I am glad that at least they did it so music isn't the complete subject of this series, despite it playing a large role in the series. I also recommend watching the anime, though, it focuses more on the music, than the characters, but it does play out differently from the manga.

A Really Good Shoujo Work

After hearing so much about this series, I finally read it! And I'm glad I did. It's definitely a manga worth reading; it's very good. However, it's not my favorite Arina Tanemura work, nor one of my favorite shoujo manga series, either. I didn't really find myself "connecting" to Mitsuki throughout the series. I thought she was a bit too stubborn and simple-minded. I found the antics and back stories of the shinigami characters far more interesting. However, the overall story was very good, the artwork was lovely, and the pacing of the story was good. Not sure if this is one I'll re-read ever... but it's definitely not one I feel was a waste of time to read. If it seems like I'm a little on the fence with this one, that's because I am. There are a lot of better manga titles out there... but this is definitely a really good one, too.

YEP, i actually cried at this xD;;

I have no idea what to say about the ending , because i love happy endings - but I also like it when someone dies in the end, which leaves like an "imprint" on us all ;D

I think this was pretty good, but also like others say, pretty empty.

I really enjoyed reading this manga. The characters were cute and wonderfully drawn. It made me cry alot as there were many touching scenes and just as many humorous ones. ^_^ The characer's were pretty in depth, although I think there's something still missing in them. And I absolutely LOVED the ending! =D

best work

Honestly, the best she has done after KKJ. KKJ was what set the pace for her, but all i see is overly dramatic moments and loads of "flower petals fluttering" right now.

Still, Full Moon deserves a huge thumbs up for the comedy and somewhat different looking characters (compared to all her other works). Though i wished her characters were more fleshed out, i think they got nicely introduced in a vague manner. Which isnt really bad, looking at the theme/feel of the series. A must-read for any Tanemura fan.

Io those readers who r going to read this, full moon isnt a manga that resembles any fairytale story. although the main character, mitsuki is only 12 years old, but her thoughts r way too deeper than her age. even i have to think for a long time to understand a little bit of her feelings. maybe at first there r some of u that think this manga is really hard to understand, but for me, if u tried to be in their shoes, maybe u can get along with the story. ^^ overall, this manga is not a shallow story, the mangaka doesnt lose the character's personalities along the storyline (well done!), i love the characters for who they are, so, GREAT JOB!

I really enjoyed this manga.

Tanemura-sensei is one of my favorite mangaka, mainly because I LOVE her art style. Even if you don't like the story or anything else about Full Moon, you just have to love the artwork. The characters are so cute and beautifully drawn.

The story was excellent, too. Iím not going to write about any spoilers, but I will say the storyline was full of great plot twists. It was also rather tragic, but in a heartwarming sort of way, and it ended happily.

I also liked the characters and the way they all interacted with each other. It seems like they all have a really sad background story, but when they come together, their antics are amusing and funny.

If you donít like stories about people in love, this is not the book for you. But, if youíre in into that sort of thing or you have an open mind to it, you will absolutely love this series.
