From JShoujo Scans:
Kikukawa Shiori wakes up from a motorcycle accident only to find out she's lost her memory! Try as she might, she can't remember anything about the yankee-looking boy who claims to be her boyfriend, her kind-hearted and good looking older brother, or her aloof and introverted younger sister.
When she goes to school for the first time since her accident, she overhears people talking about her---and the things they say aren't flattering. From what she hears, she was a terrible person before the accident. Was she really as horrible as they're making her out to be? And will she ever get her memory back?

Yep, I just can't stand to wait for more releases of the chapters!! It's soooooooo interesting that I'm dying for more. I'm dying to know more about the main character's past and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
somehow I knew that maybe she was just purposely acting a bad person to keep some secrets(and I'be got feeling that Akio likes her too) :) )

Anyway, I just can't wait for more!

Absolutely love this. I'm usually not one for overly dramatic plot devices (such as amnesia, body switching, comas, ect) because they're usually very flat, generic and depressing ways to start a story - but in this case, it's created a wonderful one. I don't know if I was a little crazy in the odd hours of the morning I read this, but it actually made me cry quite a bit. The drama is genuinely hard to bare if you put yourself in the shoes of the protagonist. She is admirable and painfully relatable when she feels out of place and contemplates the position she's in. And the drama involving her friends is realistic enough where it never gets too out of hand or annoying - plus everything is relevant to the character's hidden past. But most notably, the flaws in personality and actions of the characters in the story feel refreshingly human - frustrating in many ways and difficult to come to terms with but in a very good "things will probably be alright in the end" kind of way.

Overall, I adore this story. It's a gem in terms of originality and plot, yet still quite a bit sad and maybe improbable when it comes down to how much amnesia can change a person's personality. That's the only questionable thing (except not everything has been revealed yet..)

Hoping that this will continue to be scanlated sooner! Can't wait for more.

Its Pretty Good

In my opinion this is a VERY good series, and as far as i have read, this does not have inappropriate content, so it seems like a series for everyone.I believe that the art style is actually quite realistic, because there is none of those very big eyes. The story may be a bit hard to understand and its not one of those 'cute' romantic stories, Its not cliche either which makes it really good. Im not sure if i would recommend it for those who are under 13 years old, but if they can understand it, then that would be fine (10 to 13 yr olds are getting smarter these days).
So all i can say is that i enjoyed this series very much, and am hoping that they can release the next chapter. I might also try this author's other works, if there are any.

This is my favorite manga-ka and for good reason. She can take a concept that could quickly become cliche and puts a whole new twist on it.

The main character, Shiori, is very likable and you really feel bad for her (post-amnesia). She isn't whiny, she's not a crybaby, and she really does her best while trying to grapple with a terrifying past. The part of the story I thought was very realistic is when the poor girl hears a rumor about how she might have an STD and has to muster up the courage to go to the OB/GYN by herself, as she's not comfortable talking with her 'family' about it. Overall, the pace of the story isn't too slow or too fast, the art is great, there are no big cliches.

This is one of those shoujos meant for late teenagers (17-19) as opposed to most shoujo (more of a 13-16 range), imo.

I have to say I disagree with this series being labeled 'shoujo' despite running in Cookie. The raws have almost no furigana and 99% I changed it. Other than that...

A new twist to 'amnesia' and 'identity crisis' for sure. Iketani Rikako takes it to a whole new level not only with clever dialogue, but with her storytelling. Very little ideas are original anymore, but how an author can make a unoriginal idea original through improvisation, background detail and character development makes them a master. This mangaka has done it. I look forward to new upcoming twists and turns.

I don't know what to say. I ignored this series when Jshoujo released it. The title and summary weren't that appealing at all. I mean, it is not the type of story I usually read. Thankfully, I was really bored and had nothing to read and decided to give it a try. The first chapter was a little "UGH," but it kept getting better. Im satisfied with the flow so far. The story is awesome. The level of mystery is just right. The development is not too fast and not too slow. I keep craving for more as I keep reading. Although this is not the typical shoujo romance manga someone might usually seek, but I tell you...this one's really good.

This is definitely recommended for reading.

The lead girl is strong, makes her own decisions, and doesn't let people push her! Yet she isn't a tomboy or portrayed as masculine in any way. The plot is very interesting and it's easy to connect with all the characters. The art is wonderful! I'm DYING to know what happens! Every time I reach the end of a new chapter, I just can't take it because I want more! Even though it seems that there's nothing entirely unheard of in this manga (other than the extreme rarity of a strong, but not "manly" or "arrogant" female lead) it is still a rare gem of shoujo manga, in my opinion. Just give it a try!

I've had this series on my plan to read list for awhile now, but I had a lot of difficulty mustering the courage to begin it. I suppose I was just worried about having some sort of intense dislike for the main character and not be able to sympathize with her. I finally took the plunge and began the series, and now I'm just disappointed that there aren't more chapters for me to catch up on.

The mangaka makes it pretty clear from the very beginning what sort of personality Shiori has, and doesn't try to hide it in order to make her more likable. When I heard about her promiscuity with guys, the boyfriend-stealing, and the rude insults to her sister, I was definitely taken back. However, her good side begins to shine through and you can see her willingness to change. When thinking about her situation, if I were in her shoes, I don't think I could ever be as strong and persistent as she is and I admire her for it. As of now she has yet to regain her memories, but I find it immensely unlikely that she would ever return to her previous personality; she has overcome too much for that.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
From the beginning I assumed that Shiori had some feelings for A-chan (even the summary sort of hints at it: "good looking older brother"), and I'm sure that she had those same feelings for him prior to her amnesia. I suppose the typical cliche could happen and they may find out that they aren't blood related, but I'm not sure how likely that is. However, in one of the chapters A-chan has a flashback which shows his Mother (I assume it's her) saying that she wishes he had never been born. So it's possible that she had an affair which resulted in A-chan, which would only make them half siblings. But who knows, we'll just see.

OMG! it's so interestingggg o-o! can't say anymore! lost for words! want to read moreee >_> maybe she was like this before she lost her memories bc she liked her brother back then too?! :GASP:! maybe that was why she was never home and stayed out so late. but i would like it if it wasn't incest. i think the yankee looking boy would be a good bf to her!

EDIT- wow, this is getting more and more twisted. The brother is's up to volume 7.. i want the raws T_T

One of the better shoujo due to its heroine   
Rating: N/A

Six Half takes the old 'amnesia' formula to new places because the protagonist, Shiori, is one of the strongest shoujo heroines I've ever seen. She's also very conscious of her own feelings, and since we're privy to her thoughts, even though she may act in callous, childish ways (such as to her supportive brother), I sympathize. Shiori is rare in that she's a dislikable heroine whose amnesia has made it plain to her how dislikable she was-- and this self-awareness, in turn, makes her into a LIKABLE protagonist. She's very human, too, and multidimensional. Yes, she's strong, but the overwhelming circumstances she finds herself in would bring down most people -- she has to deal with her growing self-hatred, her friends have deserted her, her sister hates her... even she would feel alone. Her resolve to change herself into a better person is admirable; this kind of self-fashioning goal isn't a common theme in shoujo, but it perfectly illustrates, to me, why she's a strong character.

I'm only on chapter 5, but so far I'm giving this manga a 9 for its strong beginning; I imagine that it'll continue to get better.

And am I the only one who would be totally fine if A-chan turned out to NOT be her blood-related brother? Because Shiori's lost her memory which means her personality's I'm wondering why she's a blonde (looks that way) while her brother and sister have dark hair. Ah well~ Kai seems like a nice guy.

Ah, as a final note -- I like how (as of where I am now) there doesn't seem to be a huge emphasis on romance. Right now, it concentrates on the heroine's struggles.

EDIT: Caught up to chapter 11, and OH MY, I cannot wait for the next update. I can't remember the last time I was eager for more chapters...
