Shoujo at its finest   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Peach Girl is like the mother of all shoujos. It runs the gamut with just about every popular shoujo device Ė from catfights to love triangles, from petty school bullying to the typical relationship melodrama Ė Peach Girl has it all. For those looking for an unconventional shoujo, I advise you look elsewhere because in Peach Girl, Miwa Ueda takes us through the relationship woes of our bronze, misunderstood beauty with the flare and drama typical of your regular shoujo. However routine Peach Girl may seem on the surface, I still found it to be an enthralling read (especially the drama).

I see a lot of complaints about the wishy-washy nature of the main character, Momo, but I think fans need to look at it with some perspective. Love triangles are tricky animals. There are usually two variations of love triangles - the ones thrown into the story for the sake of creating drama, and then there are the serious ones that run through the entirety of the manga. Not a fan of the former (does anyone think that perhaps all the hate for the love triangle probably stems from its blatant overuse in shoujo?), but a big fan of the latter.

A lot of the complaints about Momo's indecisiveness are overblown. Whatever guy Momo happened to be dating at the time, she was devoutly loyal to him during their relationship. She may have had a few bouts of regret or what if moments, but she never strays. Itís not until we get into the final story arc in the last 3 or 4 volumes that we see a lot of Momoís insecurities with both guys come to a head.

I think itís naïve to believe that itís impossible for an individual to care for more than one person in their life, and if Peach Girl did anything else, it was to showcase this possibility. Momoís indecisiveness was realistic; she cared for both guys, and both loved her. Nothing in life is so straightforward as shoujos would have you believe - especially when it comes to love - and Peach Girl does a good job showing us that.

With all that being said, I was sad to see the end of Peach Girl. At 18 volumes long, itís probably one of the longer shoujos Iíve read, but I enjoyed each and every chapter. I look forward to reading Miwa Uedaís other works!

ETA: I also wanted to add that I'm glad Momo picked who she did at the end. Life is also about moving on, and in doing so, Momo was able to really find her best love.

Give it a break. Thats what u call DRAMA. Unnnahhh, i'll admit if her phone didn't run out of battery constantly she wouldn't be in the mess she was in. Its called the slippery slope effect. Fine she indecisiveness but thats what you'd expect. If she picked Toji over Kiley then END. Thats the end of the manga. No fun. This is a Shoujo manga. Read it in the genre column honey and also take note of the word DRAMA.

Nevertheless your typical romantic dramatic school life comedy and it still maintains its sense and I also gotta say that Sai is one freekin funny little brat.

I skipped to the last volume because I couldn't stand the way the story just dragged on and on.. What is it with Momo and her cellphone?? All the drama wouldn't have taken place were it not for the battery running out. And her indecisiveness really drives me nuts. The way she keeps leaving Toji in the middle of a trip.. Toji should have just raped her and then dumped her in the forest.

I saw the Peach Girl anime before reading the manga, and I truly enjoyed both. The only manga I'm more attached to is Sailor Moon. How involved the backgrounds are for each character really helps the story, and makes people's actions more understandable.

Great ending, great cast. Gets a little soap opera-ish at times, but keeps bringing you back for more.

Oh the DRAMA!

If theres a trip, you know theres going to be a typhoon. If you need to make a call, you know your cell phones batteries are going die. Thats like an absolute rule in this kind of manga.

Heres the story... Girl falls in love, girl gets together, girl breaks up, girl gets together with second boy, misunderstandings and drama, she ends up back together with the first boy. Eventually through much more drama realizes she loves the second boy. That pretty much sums up the story of this very irritating manga.

I didn't mind it that much up until the trip. Then it just felt like they were trying to extend the story by adding all that extra drama. It certainly didn't make it any better. If you're going to read this, read up until she goes on the trip, then skip to the last 10 pages in the final volume. You won't have missed a damn thing.

Errr, as much as i can tolerate Fuuko (Parfait Tic)'s indecisiveness, this one is totally can't. It's a surprise that I managed to finish volume 18 yet im clenching my teeth every single volume. The antogonist character development is plainly bad. It's probably because im so annoyed at the her childish acts but she's just the worst villain I have ever known. If I say villain, a real demon. I can't take her. and Momo's indecisiveness is the worst. she keeps on going back and forth between two guys plus its predictable who's she going to end up with. It's just bad. All she thinks about is just H.E.R.S.E.L.F and nothing else. She didn't consider the guys who love her but how these guys comfort her when one of them hurt her. She just takes advantage of them. It's just bad. I can't stand plainly it.

The main character was so bad, I wanted another girl to appear so both of the guys can leave her ... As for the guys, Okayasu was decent, Touji was almost as annoying as Momo, and Sae, the "best friend" just did not make sense to me, I mean who would bother to do so much cruel and annoying things just to get in the way...

I didn't read the whole manga (I read the first 4 chapters, and realized that it has the exact same detail as the Anime) so I stopped reading it.

But I also do not like the main character. The fact that she was so indecisive makes me tick. I remember how sad I was for both main guys because they really loved her, and all she can think about was herself. This was actually the first Anime I ever saw.

The ending is sort of sad, because she left that guy for another, and he was just standing there alone while she ran off (yet again, thinking only for herself).

i really really hate the main character >_> she switches between the guys at the same rate one would change their socks. an hour after crying her way away from one, she is already comforted in the arms of the other, and a week later it all repeats. its like they play tennis and she's the ball >_>
