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.

Bad but not the worst
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.
Best Romance Series
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.
FRUSTRATING BUT CANT LET GO
@ KENNY AF i completely understand you man i drop the manga in a chapter where the frustration was more or less bearable to return 1 year later but its already been 1 year and 2 or 3 month i m scared to resume the manga to end up in a last chapter that is more frustrating then ever and continu those weekly frustration
It is horrible
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.
Can't drop it... but it's frustrating...
... '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.

first time reader manga
I don't know noting about manga I was looking online how to finish my story and I came across this manga when I was on my computer and type good ending. Wow this art and story was nice . It made me feel how the character feel piss off, sad, and happy. The person who did this know what she want ppl to feel when they read this manga. I mean how many said or think it suck but kept on reading it . I went to school thinking how bad I feel for the character and mad sad and happy . I want to write story like this. Good job keep the hard work
Im very fond of this Manga, and although it's a common romance story, it's still a very good one in it's genre. Well the main char sure is indecisive but thats quite usual in romance mangas. Again, the story is great with much diversity in romance, drama and of course comedy. It's kind of realisitc (speaking in manga terms..) and the art is very decent. Highly recommendes to everyone who is into this genre.
Fake charakter growth...
Even though the Manga started really nice and interesting I think it is rather frustrating then enoying. First I thought "hey he is learning and going to be mature and decisive at this point" but no, he's indecisively playing around with everyone and hugging people who are still in love with him even though he should be conscious that it's hurting everyone. Simply dissappointing - someone really needs to punch him in his face and show him how much damage he is causing due to his cowardly behaviour. (So much for character growth - he is as still almost as weak as in the start of chapter one..)

storyline running on hamster wheel
The story start out relatively ok, not crazy good but isn't too bad either. Things were developing nicely then for some reason the story line mostly turned into: guy does something stupid, girl gets angry, guy apologizing, both are back to normal, rinse and repeat. Really! that's all, the guy is lame, keep doing something stupid with another girl, then the girl he likes find out and get angry, then for whatever they would make up just for him to do something stupid again. CONCLUSION: this manga is very disappointing.
Worst manga ever read.
Being a realistic person, this manga is the worst manga I have ever read. That is a statement.
First thing, about the character, the main male character is a gigantic tool. He is mentally weak, insensitive, dumbass, push-over. Just all the characteristic you ever see in an alpha-male is missing in his personality, and what we know? This kind of guy don't, won't ever have a girl friend. no matter how ugly she could have been.
About the story. I wonder who the author was targeting at. Was that middle school student? or it could be elementary school student. Story lack of anything special. And most lines the main guy said could be included in "cheesiest line of the century". So cheesy, so unrealistic.
Excuse my English. somehow this manga series managed to piss me off after reading only, like, 3 chapters. To the point that I would sign up for an account here and give it my review.
