GE - Good Ending  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
A follow-up to a heavy response to the original oneshot manga by the same title.

Good Ending follows the main character Utsumi's interactions with Kurokawa Yuki, a member of the school tennis team, in order for Utsumi to confess his feelings to the captain of the tennis team.

It is implied that the title of the manga is derived from the "good endings" that are achieved in visual novels.

My father once told me when I was little that the definition of retardation is doing something over and over and expecting different results. (e.g. Banging your head against a wall and expecting it not to hurt over and over) I was enjoying this manga for awhile but I found the constant building and resetting of the characters relations to be actually pretty annoying. Not to mention random love interests that pop up out of nowhere and unneeded melodrama. The story really seems to be going nowhere fast and I think I will save myself some brain damage and stop reading...

Perhaps in the future I will look this up and read the spoilers on the ending but this manga is just too much.

Read the one-shot, loved the main girl. Currently reading the series and now I wish he'd go for the third girl in this mixed up plot. Frustrations abound in this rather rage worthy series. The art is great and the protagonist is better than most series. But the main girls in this case are....frustrating to say the least. Worth the read, but be prepared for raging on the level of Suzuka.

EDIT: I can say the problem of this series in one sentence:

too much NTR.

from the start there only 2 main heroine that close to MC
and it is just rolling over and over those 2, even with new side heroine :D
the story near same as the ichigo that they have going out then after that break up
well eventually i think the MC will come back to the one of those heroine, either yuki or senpai
just like ichigo 100% that roll over tsukasa :D

I'm pretty sure that Yuki and Seiji are gonna end up together...even after all the silliness. In all honesty, the oneshot was definitely much better--clear cut and to the point. About the only frustrating thing that I can think of with this one is all the random side character (i.e. lust interests) that keep springing up. Oh, and Seiji's kind of a tool at times, but that's about it.

I'll keep reading until the end.

okay this is my 1st time here (not important but.....uhhh.. you know...)

anyway. guys you might see a lot of people here telling you not to read this manga because it REALLY is Frustrating but i'd definitely recommend it if your into romance.
First off, the story is great. just imagine that your climbing a super tall mountain without any safety gear. one mistake and your just a blob treated as pudding for the dogs. yup it's that unsettling, frustrating, and nerve wracking. add in a stupid excuse of a man Seiji Utsumi(the MC) thats gonna stress you down to the core. but after all that climbing ,eventually, you'll reach the checkpoint there waiting for you is a nice view with The girl(won't mention might spoil...)ready to serve you some tea(Oh yeahhh....). Then just imagine that bowser comes along to take the girl and brings her higher up the mountain then its up to seiji to bring back the girl and have some tea.then once he does that bowser shows his @ss. and they do it all over again.

BUT. the story isn't like that Bowser is more of a metaphor. the bowser of the story is the normal sources of love quarrels like misunderstandings and whatnot(at the start it was mostly because of the MC's impotence bigrazz ).That ,basically, is the main reason why the two are not together watching the nice view and drinking tea. and its up to seiji or the girl to find their balls and confront the problem. and as the story progresses the degree of the problem rises. and it leaves the two utterly flabbergasted at what to do with their lives and with their realationship. then they find a solution to it but finds another problem. thus the reader finding himself literally drained of their hp.

And because of all these things that readers cant stop reading it. you'd want to know how the story evolves(mostly their luuuv).
so it's up to you if you'll read i definitely recommend it. -__-

I'm only reading this bc I like Yuki but I hope I don't see her regressing cause if that happens I'll stop. The main character Seji is stupid, stupid, stupid. He's always making out with any girl that kisses him, yet with the one girl that he supposedly loves he refuses?!!! I hope Seji ends up with Shou Senpai cause they are both so stupid and annoying. As for Yuki, I hope they bring in a nice cute guy that will sweep her off her feet, someone that will truly be hers, and hers alone. She truly is an amazing character.

I don't get why people expect a manga to be just like real life, why would you want to read about real life?

This series got me and a lot of friends hooked, it's the best romance series I've read so far. It's way better than Kimi no Iru Machi and some others I've read. I've had this on my todo list for a while now since I've heard good things, and glad I finally got around to reading it. Yuki is probably the best female character I've ever seen.

I have never seen so much confusion in the development of characters as in this manga. The characters change their minds and feelings towards each other by the minute. Do not waste your time reading this manga.

... 'cause it's a guilty pleasure... and yet it's grade-A RAGE material.

As many have pointed out already, this manga starts off great. That's exactly the problem; it's deceivingly good at the beginning. It deteriorates a lot later on, but by then you're already hooked. You're gonna wish you weren't, so that you could drop it and be done with it, but you won't be able to, because by that point you will have developed certain expectations that you will demand to see happen (well, it's either that, or I'm just weak and can't bring myself to dropping it).

Alas, the mangaka knows damn well what every reader wants to see, and she's using a carrot-and-stick approach to us. It is only by then that you realize that the title of the manga is only there to mock you. This story's ending might prove to be good (at least we all hope so), but the development so far has been anything but that. It keeps promising good times ahead, only to disappoint everyone in the next chapter in the most irritating, nerve-bending way.

Now, regarding the characters... I'm going to mark this next part as a spoiler, but I really suggest that you read it anyway, because it will give you a pretty good idea of what you're about to get into; plus, I'm not spoiling much of the story, really.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First of all, there's Utsumi, the MC. Apart from the fact that he's a wimp, and dumber than a bag of hammers when it comes to anything romance-related, the guy is simply in denial of the fact that he has a penis, as well as all desires associated with it. Seriously. You could swear that he's a eunuch, and in fact he would be far better off as the MC of a manga about some Buddhist monks in Tibet or something. Now, I'm no stranger to shounen romance manga; I know that these "traits" of asexuality are more or less to be expected of male MCs. It's just that Utsumi is really THAT bad. In fact, the only worse MC I can think of is Haruto of Kimi No Iru Machi, and that speaks volumes.

Then, there's Yuki, the beauty on the cover, and as you may have guessed, our MC's (platonic) love interest. She's also about 90% of the reason I'm still reading this manga, because I took a liking to her right from the beginning. However, and it pains to say this, she's one of the very few characters I can recall in any manga I have read that actually have NEGATIVE (as in reverse) character development. She started off by being daring, strong-willed and determined; a woman who knows how to captivate the man she wants. But after she and Utsumi become a couple, she just happens to remember that she's carrying a huge traumatic experience from a past relationship that makes her feel extremely uncomfortable whenever Utsumi tries to man up for a change and become intimate with her. All of a sudden, all of the willingness and determination evaporate and what she's left with is tons of phobias and retarded decisions. It makes no sense... If you're such an emotional trainwreck under the surface, why bother seducing someone in the first place?

Finally, there's a bunch of other characters whose existence ranges from forgettable to annoying. The forgettable characters include the occasional girl that is after Utsumi's dick this month (that's right, this is a harem manga, much as it tries to prove the opposite), and the annoying ones include Yuki's brother and another guy called Tooru, among others (you'll see why, I won't spoil it here).

The story itself is like an unholy amalgam of shounen and shoujo romance, where all the bad tropes from both genres are put together and all the good ones are thrown away. It's like an over-dramatic soap opera set in a Japanese high school. If you're not into that sort of thing, save yourself a lot of time and don't ever pick this up.

I can't rate this higher than a 5. I guess it does have its merits, otherwise I wouldn't be still reading it, but seriously, it's only good if you feel like torturing yourself. The only reason I give it a 5 is because I admit that I'm a victim and I'm hooked to it. Maybe it'll be a lot more tolerable after it's complete and you can read it in one go, but right now, it's nothing but a weekly source of frustration. I'm pretty sure that when the story finally ends, I won't be saying "awww, what a nice ending"; I'll be more like "phew, glad it's finally over". No matter how good the ending might prove to be, all the preceding rage will be too much for it to leave a sweet aftertaste.
