So much hate on KNIM? TO ALL THE HATERS: Don't read KNIM if you don't like it, simple as that!

So, I decided to look back on the page of one of my fave mangas, KNIM, and I see alot of negative comments on how people REALLY dislike this manga now since Haruto went back to Eba, and how he dumped Asuka. I also don't get why people even hate on Eba. I seriously don't know why everybody hates Eba... I do know for a fact that there were a lot of people hoping for a Haruto x Asuka ending, but Eba>Asuka for me.

Anyways, back to my general thought. As I was saying, I'm seeing a lot of negative comments on KNIM now, and how the manga should have ended earlier and what not. And how in the world is Haruto a jerk? He loved Eba more then he loved Asuka, as simple as that. If he went on with Asuka, he would have been hurting both himself and Asuka if he kept going out with her even though he had feelings for Eba. (That's how affairs happen) He was just being true to his feelings.

I, for one, love the story and am eagerly waiting for each new release, so all the haters(who don't like the story anymore, who gave KNIM bad reviews) can just NOT READ and drop the manga and let the people who enjoy reading KNIM, read KNIM.

So yesterday, I caught up to the last chapter released of this series (currently 145) and I have to say I'm quite... eeeh... disappointed I guess. Incoming spoilers.

The whole series starts of great by putting up the story's setting and introducing the most important characters. Then some twists and turns and we see the relationship between the characters. All is good and even though I'm not a big fan of Eba at this point, and raged a bit myself, everything is all fine and good. Then everything becomes a mess. Eba decides to cut off all contact with Haruto, and somehow Haruto ends up going to Tokyo. Now the Hiroshima cast is left behind and we are introduced to a new cast of characters.

Now that in itself isn't bad, but my main problem is probably in Haruto as a character. Just how are he able to change his feelings like that? Let's say all the feelings of love he has had has been real. Going from Kanzaki to Eba is understandable, as he has made more memories with her than Kanzaki anyhow, and there is a connection between Eba and Haruto from the past (which I think the title is reffering too? "The town where you live"). Then he suddenly doesn't have any feelings for Eba anymore and moves on, and decides to date Asuka. Alright nice. In the last few chapters, he used about 5 seconds to decide that he didn't love Asuka anymore and liked Eba after all. <-- What? And while the characters personalities does somehow develop, many are just simple 180 degree personality switches. Nanami went from a cool, collected and "sane" person to a clutz. Eba went from a clutz and what to a calm and collected person (Though there are fallbacks to her original personality) Asuka's stomach... whatever happened to it? Oh and Haruto. He's indecisive and kind of naïve, but in the middle, it looks like he's really giving what he is doing real good thought, and while the difference in personality is sudden, I think it went for the better. Then bam everything went back to the shit :D

Sorry it's a bit of a ramble. Let me try to write something that's kinda more informative:

While the initial story and setting was great, the series has derailed way too much from its original motive. The series should probably have ended after Haruto and Yuzuki ended up together and her family problems were resolved. Because that was the reason she came to Hiroshima, because Haruto said to come at the summer festival some years ago. When the story moves to Tokyo, the plot just isn't there anymore. There are too many weird contradictions in the personality of the characters, and when their college life begins, the hiroshima cast is brought back just like that. While I guess it's a great thing that they got back in the story, the execution was poor. There were no prelude to the time skip, and nothing that indicated that all of them would come and enroll in the same university. Haruto's feelings is a mess, and I think a romance shouldn't have a male lead like this, because he is, most likely, using Asuka as a "stress-reliever". He did say at one point that he geniunely(if I spelled that right) loved Asuka, and that they would be together tens of years later. But somehow that's all forgotten and he's back with Eba again. Feelings changes, and I don't have a problem with them changing, but here, it's way too sudden, making it seem improbable and awkward. And if you're going to look at it as a probable thing, then it's just that Haruto is a shallow jerk :D

Well, I think I began rambling a bit again, but I really think this series could be a lot more interesting and fun to read, but Seo's twists in the story and generally how he presents it just really doesn't click for me. Added with the fact that the plot derailed, and the male lead is just jumping back and forth, it just isn't worth it imho.

Hopefully this is somewhat helpful, and anyway, it's completely up to you how to feel about this series. I'm not an Eba fan, so that could, of course, be one reason as of why I don't like this, but if you want to see an Eba end, please also just look at what Haruto really is doing as well as how the series is presented. I think you'll understand the general lacks of this manga. All in all I can say that Haruto as a male lead sucks and shouldn't end up with anyone. None of the girls deserve to fall in love with him. It's just cruel for them, because in the end, Haruto is a jerk.

Way to go Seo, making such great manga go down the hill.
Now it's all about fan service and casting characters aside for fan favorites.
Grats you won the worst characters ever award.
Now look what the fuck he did to Kiyomi!?
Pulled a 180 on us and made her fall for someone like him "although he is at least better than the MC." But that doesn't say much, does it?

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Basically is like this:
Haruto "the main character" starts dating Eba.
Then Eba breaks up with him just because some weird dude says, he loves her and he doesn't have much time left.
Haruto go to Tokyo just to chase after Eba.
Become friends with Eba's boyfriend "note: he didn't no he was the one dating Eba atm"
After a while the dude dies and Haruto confront Eba saying that he still loves her.
Eba then says they can never be together blablabla.

Haruto starts dating Asuka a pretty chill and likable chick for 2 yrs.
Then one day Eba comes back and claims that she still loves
[him too much freaking drama from 1 cocksucker].
Then after sometime they starts hanging out.
Back to his hometown together with Eba "Asuka couldn't go for some retarded Seo reason"and his old friends.
Chillingout with Eba who claims she fucked up her legs so can't go to where the others are going and ask Haruto to stays with her "note: there was actually nothing wrong with her, just her wanting time alone with Haruto".
Them almost kissing and bam!! Asuka somehow enters.

Haruto then tells Asuka there is someone else.
Guess who that someone is ~drum rollssssssss~
The one and only fan favorite EEEEEEEEEEEEbaaaaaa!!!.

So basically Asuka was just a replacement? lol.
And people seriously telling me that this guy is a great romance story teller.
Worst of all they actually love how Seo pulled Eba and Mr. Shitty main character back together.

shallow romance

the best this manga can offer is a average way to kill time. Seriously, you guys shouldnt be reading shonen manga if you are looking for sophisticated romance. On another note, I have some beef with the characters, Takashi, the best friend has such a 2d personality that its a wonder how he has stayed so long in the story. Kanzaki did a complete 180 in personality from a cool and collected girl to a complete deredere ditz after Eba went back to tokyo without a single explanation as to why. And the list goes on. Despite the shallowness of the characters and the whims of the author, theres some interesting drama mixed in that keeps you just barely interested to turn the next page.

It's really frustating to read/see how SEO Kouji treats his characters in this manga, poor characterization and character development of protagonists and secondary characters, poor build-up of plot; the plot is confusing and chaotic. SEO Kouji should have ended this manga a year ago, since he's really dragging the story with no actual development of significant importance between the characters. Yes, for someone like me who liked Suzuka and who never gave a manga a score under 6 out of 10, is now giving this manga a temp. score of 4 out of 10. Anyone wants a Nice Boat ending?

I really don't get what's Haruto thingking :-|
Oh yeah after some chapters that eba return, he fall for her so quickly. Then what's his feelings for Asuka :-| ? Even though some moment I saw the honest when he said "I love you" to asuka, but all those things ismeaningless after eba's back 8-}
Poor Asuka, she already try her best to get him :-<
Before Tokyo arc, it was a great manga for me, but now just a waste of time manga :-<

I truly believe that you have to read the manga to make yourself an opinion, and then say that is good or not.

dont waste your time reading the comments. Just read the description of the manga and then decide if you want to read it or not.

Just like his other works coughSuzukacough, another case of milking the cash cow. A prime example of the biggest problem plaguing the manga industry, authors dragging out a successful project ruining it in the process. I guess they have their reasons but how can you respect yourself as an artist afterwards is something I'll never understand.

This story should've ended after the first arc ended, up until that point it was frustrating at times but still readable. At that point the turn the story took was something the cheesiest soap opera writer would have too much self-respect to even think about. Bottom line, save yourself the pain and skip this.

Seo Kouji is a solid artist so I won't comment any further on the art quality other than to say that it definitely sells the series. The story of KimiMachi is pretty standard for shounen, and very similar to the author's other series. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing within the context, but you have to wonder how much longer he will continue to milk it. Needless to say that the series contains all your usual tsukkomi gag humor and fanservice because it's serialized in a shounen magazine. Deal with it, or not.

Basically, as with many manga series, you pretty much know exactly who the protagonist will eventually end up with because he/she's on the cover of nearly every book and chapter whether the focus is on that character or not. So what determines the quality of the series is all the stuff that happens along the way. Seo's stories involve a good number of twists and turns, suspense, semi-believable relationships, a well fleshed-out cast, and a long time span allowing for adequate character development. But again, any dramatic tension or mystery is tempered by the fact that you know exactly how things will end in the long run. (true enough, you can't easily 'turn off' your sentiments towards the first person you have genuine feelings for)

It's why I still read the series, but honestly, it's beginning to get a little old.

This is so fucking stupid. I hate all of this dudes series. I only read the first and last chapter. There is no romance. The main character is needy, weak, and can pretty much be called a girl with a dick. Thats why the girls like him because he is one of thier kind.
