Description
Taken from Solaris-SVU:
Ikuru is a boy who doesn't have long to live. Growing up questioning the purpose of his life and the reason for his impending death, he's constantly confused and lonely. After learning that he doesn't have much time left, he requests that a special "girl" called a AGH-RMS (Artificial Genes Human Regenerated for Mental Support) be given to him. These people are genetically made so that they help heal and ease the mental burdens of the terminally ill.

This manga is cute, sad, and ultimately a story about life, death, and humanity.

Not much I can say about this, it's truely wonderful. A blow to the heartstrings, but gives you the fuzzy wuzzies as well. The art is a bite cutesy, but the story really draws you in that you hardly even notice.

Sad 'till the end, cute from the begging, touching all the time.

I'm not a friend of giving tens, but if I had to choose a manga for giving absolute victory over the others I would choose this manga.

Splendind, sad, sad, very sad, cute, cute, so very cute. And touching moments, mainly in the last chapters, but it's touching all the time.

I hated the paralell story, and those sudden switches. Were they flashbacks or a paralell-in-time story? I don't really know.

This seinen is a must read.
(BTW. I consider this manga more a seinen than a simple ecchi manga)

Poignant Story

simply an amazing piece in my opinion. A real shame it's not very well-known (around here at least). A must read for those who want to read a phenomenally poignant, yet tragedy, story.

This story ultimately hit me in the end. An excellent view into the life of an ill-fated couple who lived everyday to its fullest. Very touching. 10/10.
