GE - Good Ending  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
A follow-up to a heavy response to the original oneshot manga by the same title.

Good Ending follows the main character Utsumi's interactions with Kurokawa Yuki, a member of the school tennis team, in order for Utsumi to confess his feelings to the captain of the tennis team.

It is implied that the title of the manga is derived from the "good endings" that are achieved in visual novels.

(relatively) nice piece of romance despite its many (relative) flaws

I can't relate to many reviewers pov that this show swiftly becomes downright moronic after a good premise. I think it just starts pretty light to get progressively more serious and complex (and sometimes yes, soapish and melodramatic), and that, apparently, doesn't please everyone.

For me, what kept the show together was precisely the lead female character bipolar personality, and the uncertainty around her feelings and behaviour (in many respects a darker kind of Madoka in Kimagure Orange Road ?). It was greatly supported by expressive art concept and drawing in critical scenes, by a good pacing of tension buildup and release, and by numerous well-thoughtout situations (eg the photography contest scene). I'm also thankful that the mangaka didn't rely too heavily on quiproquos and misunderstandings to push the story forward, making it feel more realistic than many titles i've read. Instead I find she did a good job at smoothly creating intimacy between the protagonists.

On the other hand, it's a pity she took the easy way out by just bringing down most of the credibility of male "competitors", leaving the MC as the only "default" alternative, reducing the ambient uneasiness and insecurity. There's also this universal shounen/shoujo (damn) feature that the whole universe is strictly limited to the MC's microsphere, without any casual external event whatsoever to pepper things up. But the one thing i could barely stand was the constant and always counterproductive imo MC's introspections and the surreal abstract sentimental lectures, to the point i eventually started skipping a lot of text.

Although overall it was too long for me too, with this genre i prefer too long over too short since it gives time to flesh out the characters and their relationships, even at the price of occasional lack of originality, repetition and awkwardness. Perhaps i enjoyed it more than most because i read it within a few sessions once it was complete ; or perhaps, as someone prompted in another review, i'm a masochist (and a moron on top of that) for being swallowed into these whimsical love games, for ending up feeling like "i want to go back to those days" ?

Just finished marathoning the last 22 chapters that have been rotting in my hard drive... It was "meh." For something that went longer than it should have, its two final arcs were really rushed (they were crammed into eight chapters) and ended very conveniently. The only consolation I got was that Oonuma didn't mess with the plot anymore (I hate it whenever she shows up).

I'm going to keep this short since I don't want to think more about GE than is necessary: it is one heck of an emotional investment that will put your nerves and logic to the test - and not in a good way. There are a lot of other clichéd shounen romance titles that are worth your time more.

It's really fantastic peace of work, but ...

It's really fantastic peace of work ... but it's comic (and it is laughter through tears), that the ending of "Good Ending" is really bad. Last +-20 chapters (exclude very last chapter) are totally unmanaged, and author is dropping to total mad story spins.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And Touru was totally unmanaged from time when he comes to real life contact with Yuki ... I think he ruins the story a lot.
And author forget about how Yuki overcomed her trauma ...

As some people under me mentioned, it would be better, if it were shorter.

But to its better parts.
Thats the first manga what I read, where characters are not acting like they are totally insane. Where, if one character is in love, and is asked to help another person to hunt down person she loves, she refuses (character 1 - in love with char. 3 - is asked by char. 2 to help hunt down the char. 3, and char. 1 refuses). There are so many situations, where "real life logic" wins on a "manga logic", and thats really enjoyable. Story spins and feeling changes are quite believable, all characters are very good managed, have good character builds and are acting just like they have to - according to personality.

Lead male character for me is one of best so far, because he acts just as I woluld be acting (most time of first half) biggrin

Final: Really enjoyable manga, even if its bit confusing sometimes. Author is playing really god with feelings of reader and keeping shorten and enlargen the distance between main chars, what makes really good tense. Even if last chapters are really bad managed, other parts are incredibly good, and that makes it a really worth-reading manga with heart-taking story.

All the bad reviews I've read surprise me. I found this to be a great manga. I wasn't as pleased with the final outcome as I was with Ichigo 100% but it was still satisfying. In all for a romance style manga as it was I can give it a solid 9. The artistry was great the story touching and though I personally preferred a different girl for him to end up with, I refuse to spoil anything by saying more than that, even the choice he made still felt right. The only thing I felt could have been better was the story of his choice of career was left vague and seemed almost tossed in. A must read in my book, I can't wait for there to be more of her work.

A Really Bad Soap Opera

Utsumi falls in and out of love repeatedly. He also falls into precarious situations with girls repeatedly. We see him in extreme bliss then we see him in utter sorrow. This is a drab manga with boring characters and a dull story. It rotates from school setting to out in the city to a Japanese festival. The plot is merely falling in and out of love.

There are no interesting side stories, no unique characters, no charming incidences or humorous occasions.

Fans of Twilight and the Hunger Games should definitely read this. Illiterate and shallow people will find something at their reading level that they can identify with in this manga.

Low rating due to MC

I've read up to chapter 44, but I'm seeing where this is going, so I'll put it on hold at least for a while. The reason? Simple:
The story is not bad, but the main guy just pisses me off too much. I could bear with him being just weak and a little indecisive, but he's worse than that. He basically thinks with his penis. And what's more is that he also feels all guilty just to repeat the same mistakes everytime! I mean, seriously? I don't know if he'll be able to grow up a little in the next chapters, but right now he provokes too much rage in me to handle. So, if you're searching for a MC you can sympathize with, I don't recommend this manga. If you don't mind, then the story is fine.

Apparently most people generally didn't like where this manga went. I actually had no issues with it... maybe I just had lower expectations? I was like, 'Kay, I'm here for pointless drama and over-the-top romance that I could read a chapter of, every couple weeks, and not get bored of.' In that regard, I feel like I got what I came for.

I suppose there were several things that keep me around. Like, the art's really awesome and fresh. Also I really enjoy the jokes, a lot of the character interaction, and the dynamics between the secondary characters all the way through the story. I found the creator to be rather clever, on those points. As well, the pacing and comedic timing are always pretty slick in this.

I feel like the main issue was what seems to happen in a lot of popular manga--it's like you can hear the mangaka going, 'Oh crap, people still like this? Okay, how else can I stir up junk for the characters to deal with so we can keep it going... the publisher won't let me end it!'

Too Long

As the title suggests, this manga was way too long IMHO. It really just needed 3 volumes to get the same messages across. Cliche events, check. Forced love polygons, check. If the author broke down the stories and focused on the different couples, instead of rushing them, I believe the manga as a whole would have been better. But, instead she dragged the main romance, from the beginning to the end, and it got really awkward.

I found this really similar to Kimi no Iru Machi, but with much less development.

So much potential. Lost potential. After the 1st Shou arc the story went downhill from shonen romance/possible harem manga into tear-breaking shojo-esque soap opera. I'm very sad I started this manga and had my hopes up thinking that maybe, one chapter, it will go back to its origins.

Honestly I liked the manga at first, it showed premise not to be another cliched unrealisticx10 harem story. Well the whole thing is unbelievably predictable (up to chapter 150) with the only unpredictable twist being the one that enraged all the japanese Otakus
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(Oh god a girl had sexual activity hurr durr, by the way it wasn't rape or anything, they were filmed during consensual intercourse, I mean yeah it's still bad but its a manga for gods sake)

Character development is horrible too, Male lead stays an emotionally unstable wuss for most of the time, female lead actually has reverse character development (from strong willed personality to emotional frailty caused by a trauma that she suddenly cant get over with). Well the other girls have acceptable developments at least. It seems to get worse but thank god its looking like this one's ending soon with a cliched "Good Ending". Could have been a (for a shounen romance) good Manga but dragged on for too long and introduced too much unnecissary and unlogical drama
