Not calm and deep love story as it's claimed to be

The beginning was really nice and I like the art, the story starts with sweet breezy feeling about a quiet and reserved girl who fell in love at the first... listen, listening to his coversations. But this story is not about her, as the title suggested it's about her boyfriend. If you read the story, you would know which guy the title refers to... because the whole story is actually about him! His selfishness, trying to change, struggle, and letting go.
What I don't like about this series is that it takes sudden turn into a psychology roller coaster with poorly executed story. Dramas are thrown one after another making the story more and more unrealistic. Karasuma character is unnecessary at all. He was created for the sake of twisting the story. Probably it wasn't meant to be a long story so author was forced to throw a bunch of stuffs to prolong the series, lacking good ideas, confused, and ended up ruining the story.

I would almost say reading this series was a waste of time. I like this author (the drawings are nice) so I was disappointed. I continued reading it despite not particularly liking any of the characters or the story because I was hoping for some amazing conclusion with a happy ending and I didn't even care which guy she ended up with. My hopes were not realized. There were miniscule moments where you think Nanoka will change into a good character but then she goes back to how she was. The ending was very grey.

The story was so intense and melodramatic in the front but towards the end, it suddenly became way too calm, with everyone finally understanding and sacrificing their feelings even though they were fighting for it with their lives at first. Doesn't flow well in my opinion.

Like all other comments overdramatic, only reason I'm reading it is for wangst and to see how ridiculous it gets. Let's see, overblown misunderstandings, amnesia...what's next, terminal illness?

If it ends the manga faster, I'm all for it. Don't count on this to be the next R and J.

There is good drama and bad drama. Then there's "I don't know how to end this story so I'll just smash some drama right after another one over and over again." It's ridiculous.
One misunderstanding can lead to another yes, but atleast solve it logically...

Imma go read Bokura Ga Ita instead, that one is DRAMA but has actual conlusion, development, nice build up, and it connects.

Nanoka no Kare is a story that tries waaay too hard.

Nope goodbye outta here see ya. I've been on one too many dramatic rodeos and I'm jumping off this horse.

Like everyone else has said, the first 8 chapters were lovely and refreshing. Such nice sweet characters who had the maturity and hearts of saints. But then I read to chapter 11 (the beginning of the end). I tried to reassure myself things were going to be okay by reading these reviews, but I was shockingly wrong.. Because several reviews have all said the exact same thing about its overly dramatized spiral of misunderstandings, reading 50 more chapters to see it for myself would only drown me in my own tears. Very sad that I can't bring myself to read anymore of this, I saw a lot of potential.

Save yourself, jump ship or don't board at all.

So far I've read up to 8 volumes of this. I feel like the author is trying to make a problem into a much more dramatic issue, which is a problem that is not that serious to begin with and ending up resolved very fast. The problem itself is presented to the audience, the drama keeps snowballing with misunderstandings etc, and it is resolved. This process is so extra and ridiculous. I already know the author and the writer is different but I want to point out that this is like the anxious first love sometimes not going to great type of issue from Toumori's Hatsukare ADDED with the intense rising action dramatic moments from Akuma to Love Song, except what's happening is literally NOT THAT INTENSE as they present it to be. I always think that good mangas are able to hold the intensity it is presenting in the story, but this was not one of those. The art is not that special, I feel like Toumori has not put in her all in this one like there was no usual wow factor in the art although she is one of my favorite manga artist.

Aside from all this, the characters are very shallow, not developed much at all. Very one dimensional, except the main female lead Nanoka. I disagree that she's weak, I think she has developed much over the chapters. She is reserved, kept to herself. She is constantly reaching to fix things and she's very human and down to earth. The main male lead Hayata's development was okay. Sometimes I feel like it's actually going somewhere, but sometimes I just give up on it. Takato is developed, but I feel as if the author is focusing on him too much. He is my second favorite character in this manga. It's not because I don't like him, but because he is not as big of an obstacle as they, I mean both main couple and the author, are trying to make him out to be. There's not enough going on with him half of the time to have him in so many chapter cover and chapters making an unuseful and unnecessary appearances. I feel like he's just "there" to be "there", you know? That's the same with the dramaticness of this manga.
The rest of the characters are just poorly developed, no comment on that because it's pretty self explanatory once you read it.

Starts good, but becomes just another shoujo cliche very fast   
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0

It starts out really good! The main heroin speaks her mind and isn't some helpless shivering puppy that needs help all the time. The main guy isn't some jerk, and is really nice and mature even though he is younger.

But then, surprise surprise, the main heroin's ex appears, is really handsome (of course /s) and forces a kiss on her. This is cliche, but still acceptable.

Now, the reason the main guy broke up with his previous girlfriend is because she was cheating on him. Naturally, what do we do if someone harasses us and our partner is sensitive to infidelity-related things? We keep it a secret from him, of course. (/s)

From there on out, the ex, who is obsessed with her, keeps popping up at all the right moments, when she then finally is together with her boyfriend, she keeps comparing everything to her ex.

In the end it's another cliche shoujo manga where a lot of needless and stupid drama is created because the characters are not able to open their mouth and talk. The obviously never heard of a thing called communication in a relationship.

It's still one of the better cliche shoujo manga out there. If this is your thing, you'll like this one.

The manga still had a lot of potential, but with every chapter that comes out in the wrong direction, this potential decreases, and right now I'm not sure if it is still able to become something more than a cliche.

Note: this review is up to chapter 52. If I read the rest, I'll update the review accordingly.
(Sorry for the rant, I'm just frustrated, because the first 8 chapters or so where really good)
