I've always wanted to read this, but I prefer to read romance when it's complete. I just discovered that this manga was now complete, do I thought I'd give it a read.

I'm only at the end of volume 5, but I wanted to discuss it so far, even though I will probably marathon the rest of it tonight.

1st off, I don't really understand Yuki at all. It's clear that at this time she is the one that he truly likes, however, her self destructive or self sacrificing attitude is driving him into the arms of the other girl. IF she doesn't want to be with him, she should just say so and then cut off all ties. She's hurting both of them.

The guy is really a dork and if he had any brains at all, he would get Yuki out of his life because you can tell she will do nothing but bring him pain. I also predict that both girls will probably try to push him to the other because they want him to be happy.

This is when I find manga to be unrealistic. In real life we are selfish creatures and not self sacrificing at all. If real life, we don't purposely set our girlfriends or boyfriends because we think they we be happier. I get the feeling this attitude Yuki has will go on till the end with him taking turns with both girls. At the end she will provably give some stupid reason to explain her behavior or maybe not.

I'm glad I waited to read this because reading a chapter every week or so would of been hard to deal with.

I stopped reading around chapter 30 because it annoyed the hell out of me.

the story is based on drama, so the characters tend to be unreasonably. If they were rational the whole thing would be solved in 10 chapters

I'm in volume 10 or 11 now and I really want to stop reading but I just cant. All the characters have become irrational and are doing things that make little to no sense. Him and Yuki have broken up but instead of moving on, he just follows her around acting like they are best friends even though he his heat broken.

Even if he gets back together with Yuki in the end, there is no way they could make it through the long haul. Even with her trauma, they could of stayed together and been a little more patient. They hadn't even been going out that long. I mean, she will have to get over the trauma sooner or later anyway.

This whole story is just crazy. This is why I prefer shorter romance manga.

I just finished it, it's been a long night. All the overly dramatic drama left a bad taste in my mouth. I like romance manga but it seems that so many mangakas can only tell a romance story by adding unrealistic insane drama in order to lengthen the serialization going.

I can also understand Yuki's trauma, but if her feelings for Seji are true, then wouldn't if of been better to just takes things slow and give herself some time to heal. I mean, they only dated for a month. Unless she planned on staying single forever, she's going have to work through her issues sooner or later. Yuki just seemed to be able to walk away from their relationship so easily at anytime and it was always him running after her. Sometimes I like to see the girl chasing the guy down and apologizing.

Basically, if you like super dramatic romance manga with a dorky male lead who pines for a difficult girl, then you will like this. This story reminds me of Suzuka.

I like some of the character and the art as well, I just didn't like Yuki's actions. Everyone says Seji was indecisive, but he never wanted to part with Yuki at all, he just just responded to her actions.
