Ending is controversial, could have been done better but is understable despite being highly unrealistic as it has underlying concepts that are shown throughout the series.

The story was amazing, even with

, probably a 10, but then the author commited a terrible mistake.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's obvious that the ending was changed in the last 3-4 chapters, maybe he was pressured by fans to choose Hina, but he changed his mind too late. The moment Natsuo told Hina that he was chasing Rui to the US, it's obvious that was his answer to who he loved more. They even had a kid. Then the last chapters suddenly Hina "sacrifices" herself (it wasn't even a sacrifice, as she always caused problems for keeping all to herself), and the author makes him marry her out of pity, even making the kid not have a normal family life. Such a waste.

I rarely leave comments but I felt like I had to for this one. I'll go through a few points in regards to its weaknesses and strengths. It is rather long so do bear with me but I wanted to talk about the manga as a whole and not just praised it overwhelmingly or just trash-talking it. (TL;DR at the end available but do try to read from the third paragraph as I highlight some strengths of the manga.) Similar review I read online -----

Spoiler Alert!

As most people have said, ending was rather badly done and quite anti-climatic. It's not really about the end itself

Natsuo ends up with Hina
but rather the last events the led up to the ending. For me, I've pretty much knew all along who he's gonna end up with and I have no problem with that. With that said, I felt that the story should've been brought back to

and their rekindled relationship to justify the ending more. It makes sense that people would be mad that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
practically a lot of character & story development was done when Natsuo and Rui were together. Even as it was about to reach the end, the story was still about Natsuo and Rui. If the author had done a better job to redirect the reader's line of thought back to Hina rather than just use the 'how much she sacrificed and protected from the shadows' card.
I'm sure there's many things to discuss about the ending but that's the gist of it. Some other comments have also made good points about the ending despite it being delivered in a hateful manner lmao.

Other than that, the cliche stuff, the fan service, usage of explicit scene, blah blah blah. Most people treat it as a bad thing in manga and it's true that it's not the best thing to put in a manga but it's not like the usage of it was so bad that it undermines all the other aspects of the manga. I personally think it's a given that those scenes and events will happen due to the nature of the manga itself. If you read enough manga in general, both good and bad, this manga would seem like one where it is suitable to use those cliche or fan service stuff. All in moderation ofc, which I think was achieve.

Now, onto the abundance of sub-plots. Some said that sub-plots were brought up all of a sudden and then vanished without bringing an end to it. I think this can be reflected on our growing/teenage to adult stage. Characters were introduced here and there, different hobbies/ activities are discovered, different conflicts between different characters, difficulty in conforming to society, finance problem, depression. It shows what teenagers in that stage, maturing into society but still unsure of oneself, "using that freedom to do soul searching" as said in the manga, it shows what they go through. I'm sure most people can relate to some part of the manga. It's not a depiction of perfection or how something should happen. It's how would different people see things in a different way and how would struggling people find ways to deal with their imperfections. People commented about inability to control emotions and how some events seem stupid but in reality those things might just happen too.

Character development as well as different aspects to society was rather well done imo. Like how we tend to get roped into addiction such as drugs, how society could not view homosexuality as a norm, how we dwell on our past trauma, suicide, self-harm, prostitution, forbidden love. Those parts of the manga really shines through and it really shows how nothing is perfect and how we cope with the consequences and reality of society.

In the end, it isn't a chick flick or a super cheesy manga, no extremely cool male lead, no romance that stays perfect throughout the story. You get the point. Sure, the manga ends badly in terms of ending, the pacing goes off in a few parts but is it bad enough to dismiss the other good aspects I mentioned? Not at all. Instead of groaning about the imperfections, try to enjoy it and not let yourself get blindsided from the good parts.

TL;DR : It's a good read but do not create expectations of your own and expect them to go a certain way. Also, do not read if you're only a fan of romance manga/ flicks. It is more of a teenage drama and should be enjoy as such with an open mind. Also, artwork is fantastic and amazing.

All the chapters are wrapped up KIND OF nicely until
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the author decides that she did not want natsuo and rui to end up together, so just with 4 chapters decide to switch to Hina. The plot is twisted, stupid and classic sacrifice and fate thingy where he choose Hina due to her frickin SACRIFICE.

But honestly, this story used to be good. Until it's not. I entirely blame the last 6 chapter for this

I don't know what I should say about this series because I don't if I love it or hate it.😅 But one thing for sure that is I can read it forever! Kind of addicted to it. The story if so f**ked up and awesome. Always makes my heart go crazy. The characters are total shit but I love them. I read every single chapter as soon as it is released.

I was hooked up on this series after reading the first 3 chapters. The story is light and interesting, the characters are lovable and the art is great. I would recommend it to any Romance fan.

However starting from around chapter 192 it started going downhill. The author crashed everything ignoring the foundations she has built for the main characters so far.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm not sure why SASUGA Kei felt the need to add the overused "Long Distance Relationship" & "Lets Break up since we are hurting each other" crap, is this a trend in Japan? Not to mention dragging things till chapter 215 and ending it with such a lame break up, "Lets go back to being family"! Seeing how a couple would overcome their life challenges is more interesting than seeing them give up halfway for no good reason. Imho, Rui was the main strong point of this story but the author decided to destroy this character with a lame and overused excuse.
I'm rather disappointed. Having read GE, it is obvious where the author is going with this. I hope she decides to take a new direction and not do the same as she did in GE.

When i got to see the pop up notification of chapter updates of this manga my heart wouldn't stop beating so fast.. because of this ultimate drama genre I hate.. this is the only drama genre I've reading cause i cant take the so much emotion.. the reason i read this because of the harem comedy genre not expecting the so much emotion if you read enough.. suggested to those who can handle hard emotion and not suggested for weak in emotion.. cause this will drive you crazy!! Just like me

When fanservice exceeds

I began to read this manga after having read "Good Ending", that I enjoied, even if the final is a bit weak.

Here the art is very good and the story interesting, at least to the resolution of the triangle Hina-Natsuo-Rui.

I just read Vol.17 and decided that my patience is over. So many female side characters eager to grab Natsuo and then forgot by thea author just after thieri main scene is over...
Moreover, even in a chapter with interesting relation between the characters, fanservice or better said explicit sex scene are everywhere, with really no impact on the story.

In my opinion the author has lost control of the story, hence the abuse of fanservice and more.

Goodbye Rui and Natsuo, I liked you a lot
