Honestly, I can read this over and over again. I first read this series in high school circa 2003/4 and I couldn't help but re-read it. Definitely one of my top 5s. This series is definitely a classic. You can't help but love it.

Don't get me wrong but I'm into this stuff. It makes my mind work up all the time. That I have to read every single lines so I could understand the story as a whole smile

Family problems, Phobias, Chasing dreams, they just appeal to me so much. And putting romance and making LOVE to conquer all this problem just made it more amazing.

The art was beautiful. Classic. Not like nowadays Overload cuteness a-lot-chibi-like characters.

All in all. It's just a masterpiece. And I'm glad that I had the chance to read it smile

The character development is phenomenal. Character development implies the growth of characters over the expanse of the manga series. Stopping after what--one volume?--is trying to take a swim in the pool with only one foot in.
PLEASE, for the life of me, look up Antisocial Personality Disorder before you read this, or in the midst of reading it, or have finished reading it. Just look it up. It's very intriguing and adds so much depth to Rei's character. You'll understand how he charms so many people yet does not recognize the "morality" of whatever he does until it manifests itself in Kira or his nerves. He does not recognize the line one shouldn't cross to protect someone's individual rights. The neurotic aspect to Rei is a nice contrast to this disorder. Yes, Rei is a psychopath, a sociopath.

Mars was the third multiple volume manga that I read and definitely didn't disappoint me at all. It's a classic manga that will make you fall in love with the characters and the stories. The change in the main characters is well done. Every volume leaves you hanging for more. The depth of the story is something that i cant forget and definitely recommend it!!!

this manga has all the ingredients to be a really good dramatic shoujo
it's perfect for people who are entering manga's world
the story is quite real.....a little too exaggerated to be slice of life

i have read it twice.. and i would read it again

This is not just a light romance, but a serious psychological manga. If you loved Kare Kano, this is a must read. The depth of their relationship is amazing, including their painful pasts, struggles with life and absolute agony. This one is a heart-cruncher by definition. It is a reality check, really, as it shows an imperfect relationship that sticks together despite the flaws. The characters grow in this manga, so if you do not like the first few chapters, carry on with reading it.

This manga is very dramatic, it's silly. To crush someone's fingers with a dumbell or threaten to kill a person for a crush? Wow, it's so stupid it's unbelievable. I stopped after chapter 1 because I have a feeling the rest will be just as dramatic. The main characters don't ever really have a proper conversation, like a good one, it's not really developed. Kind of like they just randomly talked, and love eachother. Wtf.

love the plot. the art is phenomenal. the feeling is all dramatic. but that's what threw me off. i don't like dramatic feel. i want to feel the excitement, the laughter. the joy. but i felt too much heavy tension and some of the characters are just unbelievable. though i would admire kira and rei, i wouldn't say i want to be them.

i might be crazy for saying this but i didnt like it as much as i wouldve expected(since it had high ratings). sure, it got me interested to read on but after everything, i wasnt really satisfied. it may be that psychological manga isnt for me? or maybe the ending was too abrupt for me? idk. another problem that i had with this is its lack of consistency, both in the mood and the dialogues (i know that some dialogues were meant to contradict because of psychological issues but i just felt that some contradictions were forced along to way so that the author can fit it in their storyline. maybe it's just me). and while one or two tragedies might suffice, this manga is the epitome of tragedy overload. however, i applaud the author for making me feel fear. there were a lot of disturbing characters here. i dont regret reading this.

Really good! But really dark. There were things I loved, things I hated, but in the end it's a really character-driven plot and since I loved the characters, I stuck it through to the end. I thought the art (which is really gorgeous!) really matched the persona of the story - which was moody, if I had to give it a word. It gave a sense of wistfulness to every scene, which lent the story depth and a seriousness most shoujo manga tend to forego. A very interesting change-of-pace, if a bit chaotic for my liking - conflict everywhere, no breathing space for its protagonists. Just when they're getting happy, a bomb hits! That sort of thing. There wasn't a real plot flow to it, just a string of rather unfortunate events thats stockpiled its characters' misery. But don't get me wrong (lol) it's a really good read, just slightly depressive. Not something to read to elevate your mood, but a riveting story nonetheless.
