spoiler :- (misaki's precious and sad secret );

The people who are interested in this manga must have been caught upto the present chapter-276, as of todays date, well this spoiler is to those who are not interested in reading the manga but eager to know whats happening or what happend so far, especially her secret..

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The secret here is not so absurd one, the thing here is that she gets her hands over some info regarding yukari that is with rapid development in the genes and DNA field in science they were able to predict who will die before reaching the age of 16. so yukari will be having that genome in his gene so in order to protect him(the first love her life), she decides to do what ever she could.
And to her advantage as well as to her misfortune the govt officials approaches her saying that her genes are suitable for govt special notice and if she accepts it one her wishes will be fulfilled at any cost, but it comes with a price of her marrying some one who is too older than her.To which she accepts that condition, to save yukari.
And the party involved in the medical treatment regarding this terminal condition(that is yukari) must not be told of any of this or else his secret treatment will be annuled or dissolved.So she struggles and suffocate within her to let go of her first and most dearly love yukari.
I must suggest one to read the complete manga after done with watching the anime the manga is still is ongoing but the plot is getting interesting with the each chapter and it is also said that the manga will hit it's end soon if no disturbances were to occur.
Well there is still so much more I want to say regarding the story but I only felt like revealing the main and most important spoiler of the actual story.

Lots of Things to Say

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I am completely caught up on the manga, it's pretty good, but I have a few things to say:

Nejima is a completely generic main character, and I don't get how all 3 other side characters fell in love with him (Misaki, Ririna, and Nisaka). Theres nothing interesting about him whatsoever and he's actually kinda annoying because all he talks about is kofun and Misaki. He's also REALLY DENSE, because he doesn't feel that Nisaka, Misaki, and Ririna like him. I that he talks about kissing and loving Misaki IN FRONT of Ririna when it's obvious she likes him and her feelings are getting hurt everytime. Also, Ririna is more decent than secretive Misaki. I don't get why she hides all this crap from all her friends, including her "boyfriend" Nejima. It's so stupid because all she does is lie to everyone and keep secrets.

I am only continuing to read this manga because I ship Nisaka and Nejima. It's the only decent ship and its soooo cute. I think both Misaki and Ririna are very annoying, so I don't wan Neji to end up with any of those girls. Unlike Misaki and Ririna, Nisaka actually confessed his feelings and wasn't being a chicken, even when people might make fun of him.
(Nisaka is actually suuupperr hot. If anyone of you disagree, report this comment. I'll wait.....)
So I was literally fangirling my voice out when he confessed, but I think it was actually super retarded that Nejima KISSED HIM, even though he's STRAIGHT AND DOESN'T ACTUALLY HAVE FEELINGS FOR HIM.
And that's my Ted Talk.

i'm only reading this to see what comes of nisaka yūsuke's story at this point, even though i know i'm setting myself up for disappointment. i strongly dislike this manga. every character is incredibly annoying except for yūsuke, who doesn't get a lot of focus, and ririna/lilina who's a sweetheart. both deserve to be in a better story.

there's other characters, like misaki takasaki, could've been more interesting, but aren't, and are just annoying, and then the main character, who the author tried to give him a little more personality by giving him one (1) interest, but ends up being annoying too. like i like that he's a nice person, but he's just so fucking stupid. it makes absolutely no sense why any of these people are so in love with him. i wish i hadn't gotten attached to 2 characters from this, because i really don't want to read it. the premise also could've been interesting, i guess, but it's poorly executed, incredibly fake-deep, and melodramatic. the side characters are possibly my least favorite side characters from anything I've ever read, especially the government officials. i really fucking hate them.

i don't recommend this manga but i can't stop you if you want to read it. if you do i hope you enjoy it more than i have.

Yukari marriage huh? I wish this thing will never happen in our real life, because we dont know how chaos our society will be with this kind of program. This manga author is trying to be fair with us, she never make both parties unhappy, I mean for people who rooting for Nejima X Misaki, there is still hope, but it looks really hard, I mean how the hell they can annul the notice. Its like they need like 100++ chapter to settle everything, cleanly. For Nejima X Ririna, looks like there is bright hope, with both keep develop each others feeling bit by bit, its quite unfair because its basic in human psychology study where male and female will automatically attracted to each other if they keep talking and meeting for a lot of time. Pity for Misaki fans but for now there is still a long way to go. I quite hate Misaki character because he looks like he want to give up his love & just want to go along with the government notice. He is a weak male lead by the way. But yeah, keep reading....

Gets better, especially when a character confesses

As of posting, I've read up to chapter 108:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ch 74-76 is the most beautiful confession (not the usual confession setup in manga) I've ever heard. After chapters of wondering what Takasaki thinks (or if she even cares!), we can finally hear it straight from her. After that, the chapters with Igarashi Shuu in them (around chapter 83) will slowly reveal more of the mysteries. Chapter 106-107 on Arisa Mimasaka's love and friendship can get quite deep too.

Overall, I thought it would be a shallow romance story at first, but it gets better and deeper (into the message) once it hits its stride.

At first glance, the government arranged marriages (Yukari system) seems like a convenient plot device. Eventually, it'll have deeper implications as we see more of the characters. It's origins are quite interesting too, especially if the story starts touching on the political, not just the destiny and technological aspect.

From my experience, interesting romance stories use some form of misdirection. From characters misunderstanding each other to readers misunderstanding the characters. This story does that in the long term.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I was suspicious of Misaki Takasaki 1) right after Yukari Nejima's confession and 2) when she was avoiding him. However, after Takasaki re-confessed in chapter 75 and Igarashi talked about Takasaki's love in chapter 97-98, those suspicions flipped. We'll see in later chapters how more info will be revealed.

Fairly Dystopian

Before I get started, there are several spoilers, so if you want to jump into this manga blindly don't read.

So this story is set in a time where the Government assigns you a marriage partner based on their "science." They claim a near 100% happiness rating with their pairings that are based partially on genetics and partially on data collected from every person from the time they're born until they're 15. Apparently, people are even able to choose if they accept the pairing or not with no consequences! Except if they turn the offer down it'll be a permanent strike against them and people that do get divorced even with this "perfect" get ostracized.

What we have here is the perfect mixture of eugenics programs mixed with government control, all tightly bundled in a package that says "for the greater good." They sugar coat the system, but do their damned hardest to get these people together, going as far as dragging them into a classroom to watch porn as an "educational film" and then telling them all to go to some private rooms to get some hands on experience.

Then there's the general hopelessness of the cast. A lot of people just accept their spouses because apparently the government can do no wrong in this setting, even though the entire system is rife for abuse. The government workers claim they don't take looks into account when pairing people, for example, but the only ones who would know that are the people running the system - the very people who would abuse it like nobles in the olden days that would steal the wives of commoners.

Even then I'll still read this since I want to see what kind of wreck this train is heading for, though my suspicions suggest it will end with a "see the government was right!"

Koi to Uso

There is only a handful of women who can create a genuine Shounen Manga. Musawo is NOT one of them.

For most romance manga, regardless of its demographic, sexuality plays a big role. Staying true to romance, Koi to Uso is more romantic than it is idealistic. Meaning that it focuses on the characters interpersonal feelings far more than it does with their morals and ideals. But unlike most Shounen Romance, Koi to Uso has a touch of Shoujo themes. Themes like love triangle and wavering feelings which can possibly lead to infidelity alongside the feelings of jealousy and angst.

At first, I thought that this was gonna be the Romance to top them all. The romance that will go beyond a mere fictional story. Idealistically speaking, there is only really three types of love. Some people love in order to give love. Some people love in order to get love. I think most love in order to give and receive. To love, to be love, and both. I thought that Koi to Uso will be dealing directly with these ideals. With it's marriage system and how things started, I thought it was going to be more idealistic than it is romantic. But, all my hopes were lost in vain. Koi to Uso is, like most romance out there, just a love story between people that has nothing to do with reality or ideals. That is all I'm going to say.

I really like those kind of manga where people are forced into relationships, since I like to see them struggling to be with their true love instead of someone that was forced on them. However, to often the main character just gives in halfways and accepts his/her fate. I have seen this trend in dozends of titles, so I'm hoping that this manga will be different. How stupid. They both love each other but are unable to be together because of a piece of paper? Give me a brake. If the system was invented to facilitate relationships, those who find love on their own should be exempt from it. And as of now (ch 25) it seems to go in the direction of the MC's love interest being coupled with his best friend. If that happens and the MC fights for his love this will be a great manga, but if he let's his best friend have his girl and develops feelings for Liliana it will be just like all those other manga that dissapointed me.

I don't get it

Yes Maikel, I do find it frustrating that the girl gives up quite easily. It seems like she (and he) were so passionate about their love and she not only gives up immediately, but even helps his arranged partner on her path to fall in love with him - a forced love at that.

At this point (only 14 ch. so far) I see him eventually turning towards his arranged partner while his original love is becoming a cold, emotionless doll. I'm sure or at least I hope that it's hurting her inside and that she is doing this because if there is no other way to be together, she wants to help him anyway she can. Otherwise, I can't understand her actions at all. It's still early, but I hope it doesn't end the way I believe it will - with the arranged couple.

For me, this is one that I would wait until it's completed, then skip to the last two pages of the last chapter to see who he ended up with. If it's the first girl, I would read it in its entirety to see the journey it took to get the two to their destination. If it's the arranged partner I would mentally flip a very small table and move on.

Does anybody else find it frustrating that the girl in this story gives up quite easily?? It actually bothers the hell out of me. True love shouldn't be supressed by rules.

I therefore really hate arranged marriages
