I didn't think this series was that horrible, actually I liked it. The art is nice, especially the covers for each volume. I just gave this a lower rating because the actual plot fell so far from my expectations. Saki is a good protagonist, independent, cheerful, and she even has common sense! Midori is also an interesting character, but the conclusion was so disappointing! I honestly thought that the plot would be more about her powers but in the end only one other person knew about it. And seriously, what kind of father is that stupid!? Meh, but read it if you like (false) incest.

I really enjoyed this. Actually, I had no idea what was going to happen and was worried that this would be a cheap "Oh noes, I gots superspowers and I mus learn hows to use dem" kind of story. Yet, it turned out it was more focused on showing that although people lie, they don't do it out of maliciousness or evil intent.

Really, the first two volumes weren't that great. The art was a tad bit bad. Dont worry it got better. Anyways, the characters were what made it really good. You could see from the beginning that Midori really did love Saki and that he wanted to protect her. You could also see Saki's blooming feelings. I thought it was nice that she was such a great catalyst, she got pretty much everyone she talked to change. The ending was my favorite. (I love happily ever after endings...Sometimes) Chibi Kou was adorable too.

It was in the wee hours of the morning when I came across this manga. I read all the comments before just deciding to go for it, I had time to kill. I enjoyed this manga a lot more than the comments would have made me believe I could. I thought it flowed well, if maybe a tad overly done with the mystery behind everything and maybe with a small bit of creepy thrown in. We saw the struggle behind our heroines life and decisions. And while the manga didn't focus on figuring out her 'power' I actually liked that it didn't. Sometimes weird shit happens, because of this power she was able to overcome a lot of things and along the way understand people. I liked how things were tied off at the end and I always love a happy ending. <3

Ditto with kichiX's review. Aside from that, the manga started out great, and the second volume wasn't so bad either. But the third was just a huge disappointment. Maybe I'm biased because I wanted Saki to end up with Kou, and because I find the whole "Midori is actually not your blood-related sibling lol" thing just an excuse so it wouldn't be considered incest. Kudos though to the author for making a unique gimmick. The art is a nice mixture of old shoujo style with modern standards. I really like those eyelashes.

I liked the main characters. I liked the fact that they were grey. I liked the fact that Midori was nice. I liked the character development in the first volume. I liked the fact that it had a nice ending. I liked that the "jerk" actually, truly, realised he was a jerk and stopped being one.
I find it a fault in most mangas that the main characters are almost never conflicted in their actions morally. It's almost as if the characters know they're in a manga and act according; unrealistic and always doing the "good thing". Saki, in a sense, is not like this. She acts more like a human in the first "arc". Although she does the right thing in the end, she was content to accept her "friend" (I forgot her name) being bullied after she exposed her lies. The ending of this first arc is not clear cut either; her "friend" is neither her friend again nor her enemy.
Saki's love with Midori is exactly what fit in this manga. It crept in without Saki noticing, and as such didn't take much "shoved in your face" development from the author. Midori may have been 2-D, and his "secret" may not have been up to much (although in a manga, unless the hyped up secret is something along the lines of a secret government plot to wipe everybody out, it's always going to be a disappointment) but at least he was nice. And his niceness didn't really have any ulterior motive. I never got the feeling that he was playing with Saki for his own ends, but rather he actually cared about her.
The third volume is different from the first; it focuses more on the aforementioned "secret" and the relationships between the three/four main characters. Although it would have been nice if the manga had continued in the same vein as the first volume, I didn't find it that bad.
Overall, this is a nice manga, with a decent ending and characters that are more human than most.

Ok but just not... great

This story had an interesting enough plot, and the beginning was pretty good with some interesting questions but as the story progressed and came to its end... it just seemed to fall just of being anything really good or memorable.

Plot- I couldn't help feel from the first volume that the second volume should have been much more. There were secrets that turned out to be pretty shallow and not well explained and left the first half (which was pretty good) feeling pretty silly and dramatic with how easy it would to resolve the conflict. I know I'm probably not making much sense, but Midori's later reasoning’s sounded pretty lame and not really.... plausible. I just couldn't accept some of the answers to the questions and that made it pretty anticlimactic for me when I was expecting something more.

Characters- Ok, the main female is pretty amazing! Though she goes through hard time and difficulties she is always working to help others and herself, she won't just sit there and cry. It's really refreshing to see such a strong female lead!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Especially since she falls in love with the nice guy and not the jerk...or used to be jerk I guess... still
Midori however was very shallow and one dimensional and even when more of his past and character are revealed he was pretty boring and dull for me and not a very compelling character. As for the romance... it was shallow, fast and just... meh.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm not a fan of incest, and only read it because I saw the tag that said 'false incest' and I already knew that Midori was not really Saki's brother.


Art- All right, Midori looks a little strange form time to time. Nothing special or grand, but passable.

Other- It's just an all right story for me. Interesting plot, great female lead and yet it just doesn't meet up to its possibilities and ends up just becoming a forgettable story that I couldn't really enjoy. Too bad, it had potential. It's short, you might want to read it just for Saki, but I wouldn't recommend it.

5/10- Was all right

Just boring enough to not make it exceptional but just entertaining enough to keep you from stopping. This manga is just very middling. The romance is meh and the issue of Midori an the female lead being
Spoiler (mouse over to view)

just isn't explored enough. It's like the female lead doesn't really care much about it except as an obstacle to keep her from Midori.

The manga basically ends once the two main characters get together. Literally right after their first kiss, there are about 5 pages of epilogue and then it's the end. So if you're looking for substance, you'll be disappointed.

It was cute, though, and a good light read.

It's better than the usual shoujo fare, and I like how it didn't feel rushed despite it being only 3 volumes. I also liked all the characters - ALL of them. They had their own faults as well as redeeming qualities. The premise of a shoujo heroine with the ability to detect lies was what hooked me in the first place, since I figured it would bypass the annoying 'I'm lying to the heroine in order to break apart her and her love interest' or any plot devices like that. I also liked that the love was understated, and not in a dramatic, "OH MY GOD I LOVE SO-AND-SO." (For example, Kou in chapter 8.)

The art style is clean and pleasant to look at, and it's not confusing to follow. I also like how the mangaka reverses the colors so whenever someone's lying, they appear mainly black with white outlines -- it really underscores the impact of the lies. Despite it being so short, the manga achieved in producing a full story with strong characters and plot.

Most shoujos I read, I usually expect that it will be like the rest which is where there are no new scenarios (example: girl gets cornered by jealous snobs. Almost every shoujo I ever read) But shockingly (to me) it was good.

Only problem I had though, was the ending. I really hate those type of endings especially how

it's not so cliche in the end, where they weren't blood related sibling.
LOL, that part doesn't suit my taste XD

but after all, this one's a good manga
the idea is unique, every problem cleared, and many moral lessons

hem about the artwork, nothing special for me
but everything's illustrated well
