A collection of cliche stories centered mostly at school life.Half are over the top and the other half is composed of simplistic stories and almost all have a happy ending.Not much of a character development and the stories mainly focus on the events taking place.That's why seinen are and will always be much better in the romance sector.There are so many one shots that you will definitely find some you will like as well as many more which will either waste your time,find them simplistic and boring or even rage worthy like the marathon race.
Also the artwork is pretty bad and it's even worse considering that the scanlation is almost nonexistent.I would focus mostly on seinen if you want a decent plot or in shounen that the romance factor is not 100% the main premise of the story.

It was a good manga. A lot of good stories and romance. The downside of this manga is the characters. The author's character design are flawed. Most of the characters shown looks the same and had no uniqueness. When a new story begins, I wonder at times if the characters shown before were them in the next chapter. Overall the stories were good but because every characters looked the same, it is a 8/10.

It's definitely one of the best mangas out there. The main story (yuuki and futaba) was so great that toward the last volume, i couldn't really pay serious attention to the other stories since i just wanted to get to their story. Salad Days is a collection of one-shot mangas which, for some story, continues on for many volumes with other stories in between. However, to my surprise, that fact did not, in anyway, ruin the feeling of continuation of the story. Every story has its own plot. And it's very easy to relate to the characters as well. It's amazing to the extent where it is the second manga, after midori no hibi, that actually keeps me hooked to the point where i couldn't stop reading. I really tried to pause, but for some reason i just couldn't. Especially the last few volumes where yuuki and futaba's story really gets going. I definitely enjoyed this manga more, way more, than i expected.

To think that it was written over 10 years ago... Regardless, the art wasn't bad. Actually, it becomes gorgeous as you keep reading. I don't think the style was changed, but rather, i was so in to the story that the art just miraculously got better. It's a long manga, and i almost lost interest after the 5th volume, because i thought that since i didn't have a lot of time, i'd rather read something with a plot and character development. Well, i'm glad as heck that i didn't drop this. The plot was brilliant. The ending was also brilliantly satisfying, and it didn't feel like it's just the ending of the story, but rather both the ending of the story and the ending of the novel. It concluded everything. My only complain is that after i read this, my expectation toward the manga that i read next became higher so that i didn't enjoy the next manga as much as i should have.

Sometimes, something is much better when experienced it first hand. Give this a try. I seriously recommend this manga.

this is one of the best romances ive ever read!
it's a colorful salad that depicts various forms of love
it's sometimes hilarous, serious, bittersweet, or simply tearjerking
there were times i almost cried q__q
the characters seem almost real and if you dont have a heart of ice youve got to feel for them
especially yuuki and futaba; way to show how complicated love can get xD
must read for people who know heartbreak and are searching for comfort

It's a really good manga about love.
There isn't really a story but you can't be bored, maybe a little too much sweet. The best point is that every story take place in the same japan, i mean some char interact with another or live in the same city/building.
And all along there is futaba/yuuki story who evolve step by step in each volume =)
I m not really found of 1 chapter story but i really enjoyed those.
You should read Boys'Be if you enjoyed this manga (and i don't understand why boys'be isn't in the recommandation, it's just exactly the same xD)

When I used to read manga I used to feel nothing about the characters, either they got hurt or something, i fell nothing for them just enjoy the story but after reading salad days, i started have strong emotions about the characters and the story, i don't know if i'm glad of reading it or not but it's a great manga, I recommand it.

this is the best romance manga i ever read! it has a good story yet ended so beautifully~ no complaint about it! just perfect!
i even bought all volumes of the original licensed SALAD DAYS manga! this is one of my fave collection for romance manga, while ichigo 100% in the 2nd place.
i supposed to put SALAD DAYS and ichigo 100% in the same level, but ichigo 100%'s ending made me put SALAD DAYS in the 1st place !
the mangaka should make 'SALAD DAYS 2' rather than 'The School of Water Business'...
c'mon boys and girls, quickly go to the nearest bookstore, and buy the complete series! lol~

Maybe I'm old-fashioned in my thinking. Maybe I'm not right for typing the following comments. If you ever had a romantic heart as a man I would say read and learn. These things can happen. Love is the greatest mystery of all.

Lots of oneshots

Man it takes some determination to read this series in one go like i did. It is really different from reading a series with the same characters and a series with different characters also every other chapter. You also will need to have a good memory to remember the characters that will pop up every few chapter. I had a lot of fun reading this series and each of the oneshots were enjoyable.
