i've been reading this for 3 years now, following the scanlations and it is one of those series which never gets me bored.it just makes you keep reading, knowing that at some point takuma will die. i haven't finished the manga yet, though ive watched the movie (because i became impatient with the scans). i must say, the ending of the movie was okay, so-so and a bt touching actually, but i cant wait to read the manga ending. i mean, does takuma die? (given the tragedy tag), or does he live? true that happiness doesn't necessarily have to be when you're alive. anyway, it's not cliche, nor boring, the heroine is strong willed and takuma (oh my god, he's just so cute when he's breaking down >.<) is just so pitiful and the plot is like koizora (but way better). anyway, reccomended for any shoujo lovers and drama freaks smile
edit: i finished the last chapter and my heart hurt like hell. i remember my first impression of this was a smutty corny shoujo. typical with a bit of twist. But now that I`ve made it through, I changed my mind and this actually made me teary more than thrice (which never happens except on stuff like koizora and some really deep stories.) it takes a lot to make me cry but this only takes a few pages to make tears stream out of my eyes. I like it because it comes from a guy`s POV and even though there might not be real guys like Takuma (who loves Mayu so bad), at least he exists even in a manga. One of the best. I could reread this over again without stopping midway.

Propogates a horrible misconception

I initially enjoyed reading this series since it was a fun read. However now, I'm only left feeling disturbed by how Aoki Kotomi distributes her misconceptions about organ donation via her manga. It's one thing for the teenage protagonists to misunderstand brain death, however for a doctor to make the same error can only be blamed upon the author's biased and misconceived notions against organ donations.

Brain death is the permanent termination of all brain activity and thus is legally valid as a determinant of death. When there is a complete absence of any brain activity over a span of time, the complex brain functionality required to cry from emotional pain (I'm assuming emotional pain due to the lack of any mentioned physical pain reflexes) as described by the doctor in this manga is impossible. Yet he never questions a misdiagnosis and merely accepts that the brain is alive during brain death. By having all the main characters supportive of this stance with the doctor as the only authority and no opposition refuting this claim, the contradiction that the brain is simultaneously alive and dead in all instances of brain death simply becomes the manga's truth.

I also find it somewhat disturbing that despite the donor and his family having consented to donating, other characters would work towards convincing the family to oppose the donor's wishes. Organ donations are already so scarce in Japan due to the lack of donors. Aoki didn't need to further proliferate such antagonism towards signing the donation card with her manga by providing such erroneous reasoning.

If you're sick of typical shoujo mangas that have no plot, this is an excellent read. Why? Well... The roles are flipped in that the vulnerable one is the guy and the tough one is the girl.

All the events that lead up to the end is necessary in order to give you a sense of life... a slice of life. There are opened wounds that cannot be stitched back together, but it's just how it is in real life. You can't have everything that you're asking for, because life is fair, not excellent. You'll feel a wave of emotions... happiness, anger, sadness, loneliness, hope. Honestly, there were parts when I wanted to give up reading. BUT I'm glad I didn't stop. There's a purpose to every arc of the story.

In my opinion
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it got the happy ending it needed to compensate for the way that Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru ended... life is fair and not unfair. In order to have the happy ending for this series, one needed to have a sad ending. BECAUSE happiness is more precious than sadness, we needed to sacrifice the happiness of two people to gain the happiness of two others. Isn't that implied though? Yori did tell Takuma to marry the girl he loves. We all knew that one way or another, they will be together... Mayu couldn't exist in a world without Takuma, and Takuma is the same. I'm not implying a sad or a happy end... because I, for one, know that the end is bitter sweet... much like how I viewed Koizora.


Another thing...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
for those of you guys who finished it and read the manga, it's funny how the ending for the movie is definite, while that of the manga was so vague that both parties of happy ending and sad ending are left satisfied.


Overall, I think the manga is surprisingly well done. As I've said, there is a reason to every detail in the story... AND for those of you who are impatient about the ending, I can spoil some parts of it for you. Hit me up with a message. smile

Some edit I should make: Your degree of enjoyment while reading this is highly determined by your age and intelligence. I was around 16(?) when I first read this and found the manga sappy but still really liked it. It's been 4 years now and I'm reading it, and I found the entire thing full of BS. It's probably because I'm in the medical field and know a lot more about heart diseases, but reading about Takuma's disease and the author's ideas about organ transplants just make me face palm. But if you're the type who can ignore faulty details, the manga's not too bad.

Although I wouldn't call this a great manga and recommend it to everyone I know, it's not that crappy as well... Certainly, everything is very typical shoujo, except for the most part, Mayu has the cliche shoujo male lead traits (ie good at everything) and Takuma has the typical female personality (ie always needs to be protected). But I do find it interesting that the story is told mainly from the point of the guy. I would say that compared to the author's other works, this is her best (which really isn't saying a lot honestly).

I do think that there's too much crying and whining about death though. But I suppose if you don't talk about that, there's not much else to talk about...

Regardless, it's a decent manga. I wouldn't highly recommend it, but it's a good read if you want to spend the time reading it. Wouldn't be a waste of time.

Well, this manga kinda annoys me. I don't really know why it gets so many 10's...but that' s just me.
Anyways, let's start with the characters. Mayu. Strong, smart, beautiful. Totally great heroine, but completely perfect and nothing really differentiates her from any other perfect girl. No complexes, no birth marks or anything like that, nothing to make her special. She's just perfect, except when she cries and blushes too much. I mean, seriously, how Mayu and the Kou(i think that's his name?) guy kiss in front of takuma? plz. so cheesy and dramatic. It's so typical that yet another guy falls for the heroine. It seems that all typical shoujos have to have a heroine with multiple guys falling for her, but I wouldn't exactly call this typical. The thing is, I like how the author changed Mayu's hairstyle as she grew up. That showed progression, which I think is really important.
Takuma: Weak. He's just weak. But the thing is, if you look at him and compare him to all the other guys in the manga, he looks nothing like weak appearance-wise! I think the author needs to do a better job as depicting him as weak. Oh. But personality-wise is a different story. He is suchhhh a girl personality-wise. 'I don't want to hurt her..' blah blah. That may be sweet, but I wish he wasn't so weak and feminine. and the bleached hair? earrings? I've seriously had enough of shoujo mangas piercing the guy's ears to make him look cool! I don't understand why so many mangas do this to make the guy look cool! Like Takuma said that Mayu would hate him cuz he's changed, I hate it too. It's stupid and immature of him. And his hairSTYLE doesn't change at all! What's with mangakas, keeping the hair the same? At least Mayu changed. Ugh. So unrealistic.
I like how he blushed because of Teru though. Even though he likes Mayu, its only natural to blush. If he didn't, it would be too unrealistic coming from a weak guy like him.

Oh. And the love part. Do they really call this secret unrequited love? fail title. ITS NOT SECRET. AND ITS CERTAINLY NOT UNREQUITED. its so obvious that they like each other, and their love for eachother doesn't grow. It starts with a romantic atmosphere, and it doesn't really grow. If shoujo mangas want romance, they have to show growth. It all started lovey-dovey to me. And the whole 'she'll just be hurt in the end' from her parents, is so CHEEZY AND DRAMATIC. its just like an asian drama filled with drama. The plot? mehh...okay but with a plot you have to have unique characters. Not just characters with different personalities; I mean it has the usual playboy, d-cup bestfriend, nerd, etc. Not very special. AND childhood friends? wow. what's with manga and childhood friends? its screaming cliche. Anyways its better than typical shoujo but not a fantastic manga.

Good parts: It keeps you wanting to read more. It touches your heart slightly, but its just too dramatic for me. Read it when you're bored, but I didn't really cry from this. Recently, the chapters have been getting too stupid for me. And the mangaka killed Teru off too easily. Almost like nothing happened. WAYY too unrealistic. I mean SHE DIED. DEATH. That's big and she isn't mentioned or pitied after it really. The author would've been better off not bringing Teru into the story in the first place.

If you remove the whole 'dying at 20' plot than it would probably be the closest thing to a typical shoujo. Its good, but cmon. Don't hate me for not liking drama, but the author chose to make this dramatic. So don't tell me not to read this dramatic manga if I don't like drama cuz it could've done without it in my opinion.

SPOILER:
(I'm about 99% sure Takuma will die. They don't label it as tragedy for nothing. Plus, if he doesn't die than everything up until now would be a waste and total idiocy.)

yah...I give it a 7. Highest rating for me.

Really an awesome read and once I started, I couldn't help but complete the entire set of manga. The art is good (Aoki's unique and usual art style) and the plot is very well developed in the sense like there aren't any weird loopholes that aren't eventually answered by the end of the series. Also, it's one of the few shoujo manga where the characters don't irritate you as much (eg: the annoying girl surrounded by a harem of beautiful boys or a crazy love triangle etc). I especially found Mayu's character delightful, the way she isn't out to please just anyone and she has that soft side to her despite being mostly a Tomboy. I wish the movie version didn't cut out so many exciting bits. This might've been better made into a Drama but well, it's all good (:

Greatest Manga That I Have Ever Read   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Updating my comment since I finally caught up with it. At first, I thought it was going to go off-track and take a comedy route to the story (which would truthfully be just awful)... but it still kept up to pace with its storyline. This is a must read for anyone that doesn't mind shedding a tear or two (in my case, however, I don't think I can count how many times I cried... and now just thinking about this series makes my chest hurt, but I'm in love with this manga). This is just such a beautiful, sometimes heart-breaking, manga.

I can't wait for the next release. It's driving me nuts!

- - - - - - - -

For some reason I always feel that every manga I read is my favorite manga, but Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu has officially taken the spot. This has actually become my favorite manga, and surprisingly this series is the first of it's genre (Shoujo/Romance). I've always been a fan of Shounen/Seinen, but this manga has really shaped my views... for the better.

I seriously suggest you read this. The entire manga is so great that I can't put it in words. I feel that anything I can say about it would be an understatment. You'll hate the characters you thought you once loved, but only to fall in love with them once again. You feel their pains and sorrows, but you also feel their love. This is a feat that not many novels could even pull off.

Anyways, this is a MUST READ... even if you thought Seinen/Shounen (i.e. masculine manga) are the only things that appeal to you. That used to be me, but this series has changed my entire opinion on the Shoujo/Romance, for the better.

No matter who you are, read this manga! I promise that you won't regret it.

- - - - - - - - - -

Also, Starry Heaven is doing an amazing job with this manga. Their quality is more than superb. The schedule, however, is on the slow side. But you have to understand that they have their own lives to live, and this project is one of about twenty others. Then again... who am I to complain? I haven't helped with the scanlation/editing process. Although I'm hoping to help out in the future in some shape or form (probably when I'm able to set up a paypal account), I have no right to talk when all I've done is express my gratitude.

Anyways, you NEED to read this manga. In truth, I would call it perfection. But that's just me...
