He's rich, he's smart, girls gather around him all the time, and he has always gotten first place on his exams... well, until Kujou transferred in his primary school class. She was quiet, plain, and poor, yet not once has she failed at beating Yanagi, both in academics and sports! Yanagi has made it his life goal to defeat this girl Kujou. Over the past ten years, Yanagi has followed her from elementary to middle school, from middle school to high school and even from high school to college to defeat her. Only when he decides to change the rules might he finally win! This is the story of their last game.

Also included are the following short stories:

V.1 - Kimi to, Shiawase. (Happy, with You.)

Unique twist to shoujo manga. I love it

While the story line and characters feel cliche, I love love love the unique twist to it. It's quite comical and I like the artwork. This is definitely a must read.

While the first chapter may be the reverse of S.A, it is quite witty in the later chapters so I think the author did a great job toward each chapter!

Great manga. Epic romance potentials all around. I don't really find it funny though; most of the time I'm too busy feeling bad for Yanagi -- trying so hard yet /failing/ so hard due to Kujou's zero social experience.

The best-in-school rivals have always been a great premise for shoujo (as long as one doesn't butcher it by making it too one-sided and stale like in S.A.). This one goes the extra mile to turn most of the shoujo tropes on its head -- with the guy obsessively worried over the relationship while the girl is 'full career' and doesn't have a clue of what love is... brilliant.

It's a nice romantic manga, dont get me wrong. But more than that i think, that, above all, Its Hilarious and Cute...
It funny that the female lead knows so much about Fighting (self-defense), Cooking, Academics and all that.. but she doesn't know much at all about... Friendship and....

This manga is AMAZING, HILARIOUS, so reverse! Hahahahahahaha...

Each chapter it's just like I can't stop laughing and everything. When something start to seem serious, there will be a punch and it's just AMAZING, HILARIOUS all over again.

I'm reading at chapter 8, and I think I haven't got bored of it yet. Maybe because there's development. And seriously, this is AMAZING, HILARIOUS.

Hmm, this is a very good series so far. The story began good and caught my attention. I like the characterization of Kujou and Yanagji makes me laugh. Overall: great read, funny, romanticly cute, and I am looking forward to this series.

So much better than SA

Okay, first off, I highly disagree with those people who says that this is JUST LIKE SA. Sorry to say, this is way better than SA. I'm not saying this out of hate for SA because SA was the very first manga I read, finished and loved. I'm guessing that people only say that this is similar to SA because of Don't-want-to-be-2nd-forever spiel of the male lead. But that's the end of the similarity of these two manga. The male lead and female lead cannot be compared with SA's lead characters. They are two different couples.

Secondly, the plot IS MOVING. Others just say that its plot isn't moving because they are still loving the typical shoujo with confessions in the first few volumes and the rest of the volumes focuses on the relationship that can easily be broken by the third wheel. on the other hand, this story focuses not only on romance. It goes beyond romance towards true love. It think it's quite adorable that the author doesn't rush things for this manga. After all, you can't feel true love overnight.

Overall, I LOVE this manga. It forms a great plot and you can see how characters develop in a step-by-step process. By the way, the art is really pretty. It's simple and pleasing to the eyes.

Do yourself a favor and read it. One of the best mangas that I'm currently reading by far. Fun, cute and innocent, it's like a reversed role romance with the cutest guy ever!
Seriously, if you haven't read it yet how have you gone this long without picking it upconfused

One of the best shoujo

I totally love Yanagi! He is sooo adorable everytime he freaks out over the smallest thing ^__^
I agree with a lot of the other comments; there are loads of similarities to Special A, but I loved that too (in fact SA was what got me into manga!) so I was really pleased to come across Last Game.
All the characters in this are loveable, and unlike a lot of shoujo heroines Kujou is smart, realistically pretty and isn't chasing after her love interest (in fact she's the one being pursued!) There's no whiny or useless women here, instead they're all strong-willed and emotionally stable.
To be honest I can't find a single fault in this; each character has a charming and vivid personality while the plot itself is (fairly) unique. Add a touch of humour, gorgeous art and plenty of "bathump" moments, and this just equals manga heaven <3

EDIT: So now i've currently read up to chapter 15, and it's started to disappoint me slightly because it's now turning out like so many other shoujo manga

since Souma seems to be falling for Kujou too.... *sigh*
so now i'm just hoping that it will steer clear of all that love-triangle nonsense and that it'll recapture the spark it once had.

This manga reminds me of S.A so much >"<
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The detail that the one who confesses first is a loser appeared in S.A too T_T
I just finished chapter 3. And if I have something to say, It should be that S.A is way to much better ^^ The author really have to do something to make this one different than S.A a little bit ~.~
