Wonderful art and heartfelt characters. Some surprising and strange twists, and very dramatic and emotional -- this series can really make you cry! This is probably the most heartfelt of Arinacchi's works - each character has a touching and developed background and things end up being connected in unexpected ways.

As usual, the ending is kind of haphazardly put together, with some random new characters and elements thrown in. The ending is very bittersweet.

This is one of my favourite manga ever and sometimes it was so sad, that I had to cry a lot
T-------T *cry*
The story is so melancholy and the arts of Tanemura Arina-sensei are so beautiful, romantic and melancholy! Unique!!! The saddest volume is volume 4, I think.My favourite characters are Takuto, Mitsuki/FullMoon, Izumi (^^) and Jonathan. And Meroko. I also like Ohshige. I really liked the story between Moe and Hazuki and I want to read more and more from that great mangaka!

I'm starting at volume 4. And as far as vol1-3 is concern, I LIKE IT! I like the story of Eichi and Mitsuki more (don't know why I'm so attached with "ichi" name *sigh*) It's sad that those who have loved each other since they were young (I mean very young) have no way of being together... Really great story. I'm looking forward on reading the rest of the volumes >_<
The anime *they said* has different ending. When I found out there was an anime adaptation of this manga, I thought of watching it. But.. diff ending?... Having second thoughts ~_~

It's one of the most touching mangas I've ever read. This story actually helped me cope with a very sad time in my life, and to find new hope. I'm really indebted with Tanemura-sensei for this.

Beautiful. I adore the style the manga-ka has! I envy her...
It's sad, but it's amazing. That's probably why I like it so much...
BUT TAKUTO'S MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the few with a better anime

I saw the anime of this manga and expected a masterpiece, what I found was a good story with interesting chars, but nowhere near the anime. The anime and manga versions had quite large differences if I recall correctly, and many of the best things in the anime were lacking here. It still has good art and so on, but it disappointed me.

So although it is good, it left me wanting something else.

This was my very first manga that I purchased and I now hold the entire collection. It's a touching story that features a loss of a loved one and whether it's right to move on or not. The comedy is great and the art is incredible!!! *bows to Arina Tanemura for a job well done*
