Not as dark as I though

This was so pure and beautiful. I thought the love between the two was so innocent to the point I wanted to wring my hands haha But the darkness was so beautiful, the way they clung to each other. I thought the story was very endearing. It wasn't as dark as I was expecting it to be, which I guess is a good thing. But The the dark moments were simplistically beautiful.

Honestly speaking, I absolutely love this manga! I would not care of whatever things the other users are saying regarding this manga, but one thing is clear for me, I absolutely love this manga. It would be a first for myself to read such a dark themed manga till the very end. It wasn't difficult for me to finish it, though there were moments where my precious tears flow down like those of a waterfall and filled buckets to the brim. However, there is one thing that I has been bothering me ever since the Mangaka unravels Kei's past... Why are there many sadistic characters? Maybe it was just my view on the reactions displayed by the other characters but everybody seems to be so indulged in being swallowed by darkness and pain. They refer these elements as 'beautiful' and such that I had to try so HARD to understand what is so very attractive about being depressed. But putting all of that aside, this manga was refreshing for me as I am not one who would often read dark themed mangas. I was absorbed and I actually felt pure bliss and relief after the last bonus chapter. Way to go, Saito Ken-san!

I read the description (but not any of the comments) and was expecting it to be like Faster than a Kiss; similarly light-hearted, airy, and taking an extra-ordinary long time for the main characters to get together. Having read it, if I was forced to pick another manga it was like, I'd probably say the darker parts of Mars were akin to it.
To be honest, I didn't really understand this manga. For example
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kei's determination to live only as a punishment, to continuously ruin the happiness he could have only to claw it back and then hate himself for this is not expressed exactly. It is explained obliquely and I still don't feel like I really understand it all. I guess you could say that it's because he feels responsible for his mother's suicide/death but I feel like that doesn't explain the whole Iori thing.

I think a more mature reader will appreciate it to a fuller extent. It leaves a kind of nostalgic, bitter-sweet aftertaste. I'm glad that all four volumes have been scanslated, without the ending it's, well, not exactly depressing, but heavy. Don't read this expecting a light shoujo.

I read the first chapters like 1 year ago and thought it was the typical manga where the main girl get rejected and played around by the main guy. I always thought of picking it up and finally i did it, and i so regret that i didn't read it before. And this manga is awesome, the characters are really realistic, and one can see how they grow up in the story and teach us life lessons. The romance is really sweet and i like how the main guy wasn't a typical perfect guy..If you think you are mature enough to let aside the typical shoujo themes or want to read a realistic manga that makes you think, then you have read this awesome manga. You won't get bored!! The manga maybe it's a little dark but the main girl and the other characters give every chapter a positive view of point of don't giving up and to not make the same mistakes, moving on and to care about others. The most important thing in this manga, i think, it's that it's really easy to judge instead of undertanding a person and that a real love is one that supports you in good and bad times ^^

I've only read a couple of chapters, and I've decided to give it a whole volume to entice me, but so far it's very.... dull?
I don't quite understand why I don't particularly care about the main two of this shoujo, when I am usually such a victim for cutesy live-in-lovers. There seems a substance lacking to their relationship, and it develops too slowly. She finds out his feelings and six months later... nothing? Seriously girl.

I dont really recommend this...
I managed to finish reading this series (forcefully <-lol)
It's a little boring as the chapter goes by... and yeah... perhaps I'm a little off the manga or something... but I don't feel anything from the manga.

yeah... a little waste of my time reading it if you ask me...

Very little happens in the course of 4 volumes, and I found most everything to be too uneventful, and mild. Instead of drama/ fights to move the story on the characters just cry & talk about flowers and hug and then the problems go away. It's only interesting when they talk about the guy's super dark past, and I wished the manga would have spent more time on fleshing out that aspect.

i was very depressed when i read this so i just cried a lot and i was feeling really numb the whole time AND I LOVED IT!! it fit my mood perfectly i mean it was so creepy,sad, awesome, and the editors just hilarious...i enjoyed it, i wont read it again for a while though because although it was sad the heroine was a bit on the stupid and clueless side but the guy lead makes up for it even though he starts acting like a little butthole in the last few chapters

Maybe because I was so sleepy? I was reading this 4AM haahaa

Honestly, I felt nothing. It was sweet when she finally confessed, but I have NO clue what happened to him, Iori and the editor. Someone please explain it to me?

It was truly a great peice! I have to admit, even though I was confused, the suffering of the male character. Aweesome <3

It started out good...

I avoided this manga many times as I think it is going to be heavy, but I finally read it...
It started out good, you know there is a tragic past but it is very sweet and the humour is great... then from Vol3 onwards, it just went downhill for me! I could not connect with the characters, especially that wrtier guy... the patience I have for him was wearing very very thin! And Vol4 I was beyond care and was just skimming through...

Seriously, I think Chouko is better off with the editor anyway! You don't need 2 pessimistic people in a relationship, let alone one that is a sadist!!!

I do not recommend this manga, it's gloomy and dark without significant reasons (well, if there are, it didn't come through to me anyway!)
