Well,I love this manga.My number one manga ;] Its not a manga with the big cute round glittering eyes,or the kawaii fan girls or anything.Sure,its the good-girl-hearts-with-bad-boy,but.! It has more depth to it.It can make you cry,laugh and smile.This manga really makes you think about life.Its not those little light-hearted ones where they make you sad a little bit and next thing you know,the series is done.its not like those other shoujos where you read it one day,and then the next day you forget.Its DIFFERENT.Its unique cuz it leaves an impact.Very true to life.The characters have flaws but are still great throughout the series.And my gawd,the art is GORGEOUS. So to me,this is series gets an A++ Definately my most favorite manga ;]

I really enjoyed the story form the beginning till the end, there was a point when i was disappointed at the flow of the story but soon I forgot about it and sank into the story again the ending was great too not to mention that in the end was a really umm stressing part so for a minute I thought that the ending is not going to be what expected though some times its good I dont think the manga would have left me with the same warm feeling I have now if the ending was different.
I think that every body that love shoujo stories should read this one and enjoy it as I did.

thanks for the attention,

Alisa

I see where sakura1083 is coming from. I also prefer the light hearted stuff. There are manga that over do things. Mars might als be one. The thing with Mars however. There is some proper chemistry between the characters. The interaction between the character is natrual. It's realistic in a sense how the characters act. The events might be to much, but everything around it is awesome.

Made me think a lot about my own life

Yes, this series has a lot of drama. It sometimes seems like a soap opera. Love triangles, amnesia, car crash, childhood trauma, mental illness, bad parenting, suicide, violence, bullying. . . the list is long.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The rich troublemaker and poor kind girl cliche is another big one. Everything was conveniently solved by the rich dad, which is the one thing keeping me from giving MARS 10/10.


But underneath all the action is the author's understanding of humans. We get hurt, but life goes on. One accident alone can cause overwhelming pain, and all the deaths around us can make our world seem crazy. All we can do is keep on living. So we stand up again, and put a bandage over the scars. We all can either die or keep existing. This manga made me think about how I've taken a lot for granted. The messages the author delivers through MARS really resonated with me, and i found myself crying at how immature this manga made me feel.

There are lots of plot holes in this story, and the characters are all flawed-- i don't like the main guy for his violent temper, for example. But to me, MARS is a sincere love poem to humanity. For all the pain and cruelty that we give each other, we humans are a beautiful paradox of fragility and strength. Humanity is just like the God of War, Mars, cruel but kind, and burning with violent passion.

I recommend this to everyone who has ever gone through hard times.

I already watched live action (Taiwanese Drama) long time ago, and at that time I donít know that this drama is adaptation from manga. I never thought that.

When I know this manga, I pass it, since I already watch the live action; Iím scared that I will disappoint with this manga. Since I like the live action very much. But I was wrong, I love this series. I love this much much than the live action.
The art is good, I love that. I love how Souryo Fuyumi draw Rei, and after I finish this manga, I feel more happy about my life smile biggrin

Although it may not seem too dark at first glance, just assume that the darker points in the beginning is the typical tone of the entire series; not to say that's all Mars has going for it. It was a great read that left my heart in shambles at one too many points in the story. My only gripe was with some of the psychological aspects being a bit far-fetched, namely
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when a certain someone is able to fool several professionals to release him from the institution (some psychiatrists/psychologists are undeserving of their title/job due to how terrible some of them are, but to fool several of them is beyond me),
but I'm not so hyper critical to allow that to devalue Mars as a quality series.

Any one who rated this less than 9 was clearly unprepared for the story... So it's my suggestion... If you're looking for a fluffy romantic read, please forget this one.
But if you are ready to invest some time and emotion with the story and its characters... You have to try this. Don't let the old art scare you... There will be no starbursts in the heroine's eyes in this one. If anything, you would be pulled in by the artist's beautiful eye to details, her perfect sense of proportion... and irresistible narration.

Everyone has hidden sides... denying that is a lie. Discover how Rei and Kira stop hurting behind their public facades; watch as the playboy and the quiet artist heal each other.

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.

This is the greatest manga I'ved ever read! (period)

It's a classic, for me nothing can compare this. While reading it I felt a very strong emotion and now I'm having a hard time reading a new manga (sigh)

You could feel all the emotions of the characters.like they're real especially the drawing.
This is one of a kind and very special manga to me...

I'm glad I have a chance to express my feelings about this great manga.

The characters were great. Emotional, unpredictable, intense, and somewhat real feeling. Mars stirs up your emotions and really leaves an impact on you. Actually, it affected me so much it's almost embarrassing. ^^; It was definitely one of the most intriguing and unique mangas I have ever read. It really gives you a new perspective on things; some unexpectedly dark, others ridicously simple and cliché.

I will forever, unconditionally love this manga. No matter how many times I reread it, it never fails to captivate me. You will not be disappointed, READ IT. It is absolutely perfect in every possible way. ^_^
