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.

Starts out good, then turns into a fanservice infested harem

Good Ending starts out great. We have a guy (Utsumi) who's insecure about himself, and he's got a crush on this girl who plays tennis. She's really nice, which is why he likes her. Another girl, Yuki, can tell Utsumi likes the tennis girl, so she decides to help him overcome his insecurities and help them get together.

Utsumi joins the tennis club, and finally gets to talk to his crush. They talk, they have fun, they even go on a sort of date because Yuki was pushing Utsumi to do it. However, when he finally confesses, she rejects him, saying she already has someone she likes.

Utsumi then directs his affections to Yuki, the girl who helped him get together with the tennis girl. He realizes he loves Yuki, and wants to be with her, but doesn't know how to tell her.

This is where Good Ending becomes Endless Bad Ending.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Suddenly not only does Yuki secretly like Utsumi as well, but some big breasted bimbo has set her heart on concurring Utsumi by literally raping him, and the tennis girl has a change of hearts and likes Utsumi now as well. All these girls like him, and even though Utsumi said he loved Yuki, he can be so easily manipulated by the big breasted bimbo and the tennis girl. Both times he wanted to have sex with them (and would have if they weren't interrupted), even though he apparently loves Yuki.

This manga just endlessly cycles through the same damn formula again and again, and keeps adding more people that want to throw themselves at Utsumi (turned into a harem). I guess that's what you get for being a shonen romance manga. I have given up hope that it will turn out good, because this isn't worth saving anymore. It started out great, but it definitely left a bad aftertaste in my mouth.

It had a good beginning, about a guy who gets heartbroken and tries to start again while struggling with his insecurities. Then after things wrap up with the girl he wants, the author decides to make this guy act like an idiot getting insecure for any girl trying to get his attention, bringing us back with the latest chapter to the first situation with the first girl. It's like if the whole plot were supposed to be endlessly being insecure between all the possible girls he could be with. While it might be fun for a while, the latest chapters just demonstrate lack of ideas and a story simply going around in circles instead of developing further. I'm seriously thinking about dropping this one.

...thats idea of drama is to pretend like one thing will happen, then do the opposite... and to throw random impediments into the mix to prolong resolution. I wouldn't care so much but for the fact that the quality is generally pretty high, and if certain key elements were tweaked this could have been a very good manga.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
And c'mon, do the girls really have to be tainted? It's depressing and totally unnecessary. The main girl was apparently maliciously deceived into having sex with an audience, and the alternate girl is now out of the picture being sullied by some random guy...

Falters after a while

Starts out quite strong with a interesting pair of leads: a boy shy and sensitive to the point of weakness (although the story is not dismissive of him) and a very assertive girl with a somewhat unusual appearance (though quite beautiful). Watching the male lead try to fight his weakness and approach the girl he likes is quite involving.

The problem happens when the initial plotline wraps up. It's awful when a series won't stop dwelling on something that should have ended long ago, but after Good Ending closes it off and moves on, it's nowhere near as interesting. It starts dwelling on...nothing, really, and really drags its feet getting to the next plot in exact the way it didn't during the first plotline. Too little happens in each chapter at this point to really call it good.

In agreement with Kouta; this manga is a bit deviant of its genre, but in a good sense. It is true that when the manga at its first chapters, the protagonist is as wimp as one could be (= big turn off). But only in few chapters later, thanks to reasonable development (read: isn't dragged on), the protagonist turn out to be so much better. The story of one male with several females in about-to-be romantic term never been this enjoyable.

(true that this genre has a lot of potentials that haven't been exploited, but for few years to come, GE can be said to be the best)

I've gone through 25 chapters of this, and I have to admit, it's a pleasant surprise. The protagonist is a twist on the stereotypical shounen romantic comedy lead. Instead of being hilariously (or pathetically) inept and landing in awkward situations for the fanservice after being led around and teased by girls, he's actually found one that decides to help him out. After that, it's as if nearly all the cliches fall away.

In short, this series has elements of realism, or at the least, elements we don't see in normal stuff of this genre.

On a true scale, where 5 is an average, enjoyable series, this is at least a 7 at this point. Hoping to see some more.

The mangaka really hate the protagonist, it's really hard for me to continue this series after the main protagonist is obviously a masochist. The main protagonist didn't learned his lesson and keep repeating the same mistake making me so pissed off.

First chapter sets up the Rest

I don't think you should drop it after just the first chapter. That's just setting up the characters. It gets better really fast, especially in terms of character and plot development. I'd like it if none of the shounen cliches were around, but having to only deal with very few is good enough. Plus, Yuki is always there to set those generic shonen assumptions straight.

Yuki's a strong character, which is great.

I got drawn in by the beautiful cover image up there, but the main character was such an annoying spineless whiner I almost abandoned it after the first couple chapters. Boy am I glad I didn't! Stick with this, it gets better fast.

This series has a strong start. I´m upto chapter seven and the only complaint I have is the cliche ending to that specific chapter. It´s such a false start.

But that aside, the writer has skill in working within the confines of what you´d traditionally expect from a shounen romance while clearly standing out. the characters are like 80 percent real, and only 20 percent cliche. You can say the same for development. Half of the advice is fairly good while some of it seems a bit diluted or worded with a manga cliche in mind.

Update: It's already turning into a huge disappointment. It's not bad if you haven't read many shounen romances or you don't mind them, but I look for the exceptions to the rule. This seemed like a good one at first but it's fallen hard. Plus, once you have three girls at once, it's basically a harem.
