It's a beautiful story AND it has beautiful art. Usually shoujo mangas are so light and happy and annoyingly silly, but this one is dark and mature. I loved the psychological stuff behind the romance. Even though you see stories about a good-girl-who-falls-in-love-with-a-bad-guy everyday, this one is different. Great depth. Rei and Kira's love for each other is really intense. Plus, I loved loved loved the ending, it nearly made me cry.

Wow... just Wow...

I just finished reading this, and God, its masterfully done. Defiantly the best not-comedy shojo out there. You just can't compare it to other "great" shojos, because it blows them all away. Its a class of its own, and the very highest. Giving it even a 10/10 seems to be insulting it.

It is a little dramatic, but at the same time, its so realistic, although fake at the same time. The way it centers around the two main characters so heavily is amazing; it puts new meaning on the feeling we humans have, that the whole world revolves around us.

This is the manga that made me love manga. Rei and Kira are realistic (as are the people around them). Yes, there is a bit of drama--but the good kind; it's not melodrama.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Kira's reaction to being raped by her stepfather is incredibly realistic, as well. She seems to almost disassociate herself from her peers. I also love the symmetry of how her first sexual experience with someone she loves seems to bring her out of that disassociative state.

This was one of the first series I've ever finished, read it a looooong time ago, but I enjoyed it and it was a pretty good manga, had a great plot also. If you're looking for a great Shoujo, Drama, etc book this is for you.

I absolutely love this series! And, while, yes, it had plenty of drama, I agree with the comments about how the serious storylines were balanced out nicely by some very light-hearted, funny moments. Overall, the completed series left me feeling very satisfied and content.

Do you get me when I say: 'too dramatic'. It's like the world revolves around the two main characters, everything that happens surprisingly manages to have an impact on the main character in one way or another.

Well I guess its meant to, but come on:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
His girl friend gets raped by her stepfather and her mother abandons her for the stepfather, his twin brother and his mother commit suicide, his ex attempts suicide, he thinks his fake father is his father but intriguingly his father is the brother of the father he thought he had, his real father dies in a freeking car crash and his best friend dies in a motorcycle accident. =.="

Fascinating isn't it? ...Dont get me wrong, all this crap actually managed to entertain me... Somehow.

Edited by mod: Next time add spoiler tags, okay?

Very good, but a bit overloaded with drama.

Yeah, as the tile says. This is a very good manga, with a well developed
plot and characters you like and care about.
Of course being a psychological drama series it's packed with a lot of difficult
(if not disturbing) issues that many people have to deal with in their everyday
lifes... It's hard to say if it was planned that way, but I got the feeling that author
went a bit overboard with all the problems that the two main characters have to deal with and overcome
Spoiler (highlight to view)
mainly the fact that Kira was raped by her stepfather was a bit too much for me to bear (seriously it would be better if she acted the way she did towards men because of a bullying or smply because of shyness and not because of rape)
. Anyway I really liked the series, just when I read it again I'll gladly skip the most disturbing scenes...

I'll give it a solid 9.5

This manga was like a great novel. It took me on a realistic journey of the trials tribulations but most importantl, the love involved in in life. It showed me that love is not all about romance and infatuation - it also includes accepting everything about your partner including their past because that is what makes you who you are. Mars also showed me that someone can still get close to their parents even after a turbulant childhood, that you can get over the mistakes of the past and form stronger bonds as two adults as apposed to parent and child.
AWESOME manga, it may not be perfect but it gets a "10" from me. i can't wait to read it again
