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.

Can't drop it... but it's frustrating...   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

... '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.

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..)

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.

Bottom line: don't even think about trying it.

However the main character is a tool who has no idea who he likes. He was head over heels for his tennis senior but his friends just shoehorn him towards another girl(Kurokawa) all while another girl is making an earnest effort to get his attention.
Doesn't matter though, if you have half a brain then you'd know from the moment he was pushed towards liking Kurokawa she would be the final pick.

I can do nothing but laugh at most of the previous posters. Given recent events in the manga, it's fairly obvious (and was to many including myself the whole time) that all the stuff they were complaining about was simply setup and prelude to something much more dramatic. If anything this story is a very interesting mix of shoujo and shounen romance, and nowhere near your standard harem shounen fare, to say something of that nature is obvious ignorance of manga and storytelling in general.

I feel like there is almost no progress made in this manga. The male lead keeps chasing one girl who keeps pushing him away with very little development between them after the 20 first chapters and the male lead is chased by a bunch of uninteresting, annoying girls that only seem to serve the purpose of taking up space from the female lead, to keep slowing down the progress, it only makes me frustrated to see some annoying girl in a restuarant instead of the leads together.

The biggest fail this manga could do would be a Kimi no Iru Machi turn, in that case it will be dead cause then its just the mangaka looking to extend the story for the worse.
