I really, really, really love this series. The story may be a bit predictable, but the way it's told is really quite extraordinary. I could empathize with the characters and every scene is wonderfully drawn. This is one of the only manga that I have ever gotten teary-eyed at, and I almost never cry.

Just finished this story and it's wonderful! The bonus stories at the end are also very funny. Only thing is, I feel sad for Butterfly thinking that her husband died and also having the scars on her back.

Beautiful Art

Art (10%): 10
The art is pretty and clean. Everything is just nice to look at.

Story (40%): 9
I normally don't like historical manga but this is more shoujo than historical if that makes any sense. The story is funny at some parts but also made me cry a lot. It is not a tragedy though. This is a nice short manga to read.

Character (40%): 9
The characters are likable but none of them are extraordinary on their own. The relationship between the main characters is sweet and cute.

Enjoyment (10%): 10
I cry at some parts and laugh at other parts. Sometimes I'm just amaze at the art. I recommend this manga to everyone even to the people that doesn't like shoujo.

Total Score: 9.2

Man...these people scared me and crap, I just got done crying.
This is a really good story to me it's not over cheesy and caked with crap. It's very original and artfully crafted, really good read.

I just finished reading this manga and I'm still drying the tears from my eyes. This manga is so beautiful in every single way. It's a beautiful heartwarming story with gorgeous art and a beautiful romance. The story is so sweet it touches your heart making you laugh and cry with the characters. Even the end was beautiful and the omake was funny and perfect. If I could I would give it an 11/10. I absolutely recommend it!!!!!

I love the manga, of course some things could have been a sidestory in which the hero was still recovering in leyte ( An Island in My country...which gives plus points for mentioning the place 8D) and the time he spent there...but wishful thinking. The characters are cute and the story is dramatic without going to super emo mode that you wish the characters could have just died.

Okay, I've finished in one go and really enjoyed it. I guess deep down I'm somewhat corny and actually, I've been reading a lof of josei and shoujo lately.

So, this manga is simple to its core: from the art, the characters to the plot. Everything is predictable and you almost see every cliche in the shoujo type. But isn't true that the simplest thing hits you the most? A typical Japanese young girl is sold to a geisha house, got a crush on the boy next door and dreaming of being with him. It's like a stereotype! However, as the author kept the story short, only in 2 volumes, you can clearly say the characters' development and the progress of story. There isn't any wishy-washy moment but very causual problems. In total, the manga gives out a feeling of slice of life.

I might be biased since I read this while remembering the good times of me and my girlfriend and how things should have turned to be. But all in all, give this manga try and you won't regret its simplicity and completion.
