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.

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)
A nice break from the usual
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.
Stay with it!
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.

Ugh, Blah, a shame, too bad, so sad.
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.

at the beginning, one would think of manga like Ichigo 100%, or Suzuka. but as the story progress, you can at the very least distinguish the difference. though still on the chapter 7, but the story so far already give suspense on what will happen next. there's not a lot of manga that give much excitement while waiting for the next release. hopefully the next chapter will satisfy the excitement it had given. but still a good manga.
i'll be looking forward to this. i'll change this post after i read the next chapter.
5 chapters in..
Just read 5 chapters of it.. and I must say this is pretty good.
The arts pretty, I really like it. But the thing that caught me the most was the development that happened in just 5 chapters. Usually many series tend to start out slow or drag out. The main character starts out as the typical weak protagonist.. but even now he is already developing into a guy with a stronger determination and will, and character development is so so so important.
Started good, ended bad
Had to change my comment for this. Series started out great, but as time went on, it just got worse and worse. Too much drama, too much plot-induced stupidity on the part of the main characters, and the MC, who was once decisive and growing, did a complete backpedal into a typical wishy-washy protagonist who does nothing but hurt the girls around him. Plus, by the end of the manga, I lost any like I had for Yuki. So much potential wasted.

Don't worry about the weakling....
Though he's horribly weak in the beginning, I feel he makes progress fast, and his later bouts of self loathing are far less annoying and mostly just comic relief.... By chapter 5 he shows severe improvement, and I love the art for this story, so compounded with the other unique characters, I'm going to ride this one out since it looks good....
