Oh my, what is there to say that hasn't already been said...IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME AND REINS SUPREME OVER ALL ROMANTIC MANGA!!!!!!!!1 *clears throat* I'm really at a loss for words here. Truly.

But seriously, I read this mostly because I wasn't allowed to. My older sister said along time ago that it was to "Graphic" so to speak. So I just thought recently "She'll never know" So I read it and fell in love! Unlike most people I enjoyed Aine's behavior. She was always soo cute, and I loved the way Sakuya acted. And I adored the ending. I cried. Then I wondered why my sister didn't want me reading such a sweet story. The world may never know. I certainly won't.

I recommend this to someone with alot of free time and patients. Every little bit counts!

My god this manga is the worst one i have ever read. the story lines okay but the "girl" and "guy" are so annoying. the only reason i finished it through was cause of the side characters. The story is so repetitive and it starts to read out as a typical shoujo manga. not recomended to people who expect a plot

one of my favoriate manga. It rocks and its funny, sexy, and a bit dramatic. Well i mean alot of shit happeneds so i guess you can say it was pretty dramatic. But it was great and i think that alot of people will like it. The charicters are hott the story line is fun and good, and its really good. I like the manga alot more than the anime i thought that they were really diffrent!! but both good smile

great storyline, although the author seems to be making it up as she goes along in the later volumes. still a good read though.

Mayu never dissappoints. I bought all the volumns, yes, it is THAT GOOD. The ending was amazing, a happy ending, and it leaves you wtih a safisfying feeling. The characters were nicely protraited, even the side characters got plot development. Aine and Sakuya is just the perfect pair, tho what they went through is alittle farfetched. Nevertheless, Mayu caputred the essence of people's life. If you look at the bigger picture, the storyline is really touching. Each of the events had its reasons to take place. I love how in the ending tied up perfectly with the beginning.

It's a fast read, entertainning all the way through, no boring parts at all. This seems strictly written for shojo fans. But still even if your not, there shouldn't be any reasons for you to not like it. Of couse there was a lot of smut, but that's just her style. However, as we all know it is usually the smut that brings out a person's true emotions in drawingform, sometime words just won't cut it.

This is something you can come back to read over and over again. It's just amazing written and drawn.

10/10 for Mayu!!! .

Ew. gross. disgusting. horrible. immature. unrealistic.
after reading this, i feel like giving it a 10. on the other (and sadly nonexistent) end of the chart.
You can't hate on me for saying this if you're a Shinjo-addict, because i've read most of her works, and more besides. I know my smut.
You know how there's music you feel like you have to dance to? i found manga i feel i have to puke to. both this one and haou airen, which is another
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
piece of crap i can't stand. who honestly reads raperaperaperaperape and likes it? answer, sickos and phycopaths, that's who.

beyond that, i'm a feminist. screw males. who do you think let you live? who's smart enough to live longer in the first place? SM's girls are wimpy, fake, and rediculous. oh, speaking of SM, her female characters are almost always the perfect fit for the m in sm.
i think shinjo mayu is bad for my heart (and my stomach). a 1 from me.

I started this story, and things were fine for around the first 5 volumes, and then I just started getting tired of the heroine, who never seems to learn anything or gain any confidence. I'm tired of seeing: girl does something stupid, guy saves her, she has confidence issues, he reassures her, repeat ad nauseum. If they'd stopped around chapter 35, it probably would've been OK, but I don't think I can take another 10 volumes of this! I moved it to my unfinished list. Some day when I'm feeling masochistic, I'll pick it up again.

It's a fun shoujo, but to be true... I'm getting crazy about the fact there are always problems with Aine XD
