Very good manga but too sad for me   
Rating: N/A

It truly is a good manga, couldn't wait until the last chapters come out so ended up buying it in Japanese online. It was a lot more sad than I thought it would be since I was specifically looking for happy mangas with no drama and definitely not a tragedy, turns out there was definitely drama and there was a lot of parts that made my heart ache a lot. I should have checked the labels on the reading site, because on Mangapark it definitely says that there's drama, but it didn't say it here, so that was a bit stupid of me since I can't handle painful drama… :s

The transition from volume 5 to volume 6 was super confusing (I can't read Japanese) and I quite hated the two last books because it was just too much broken hearts and pain. But the ending is relatively happy, I'm just happy she ended up with Tomoyo, otherwise it would have killed me. But it was too much sadness before they actually ends up together, and that has really torn me apart.

Loved the funny parts, but couldn't take the sad ones. A great manga but not a manga for me.

I like the whole atmosphere of this manga; it reminds me of Obereru Knife in a way. The story flows well, and all the characters have interesting back stories that have yet to be fully revealed. But oh no, if she ends up with Ono! (excuse my lame pun) I love the comment before me who labeled Ono as "Mr. Smooth Operator" ahaha I was loling at that for a while. As a girl, Ono is definitely the attractive, mysterious, bad boy guy we kind of all want just a little bit, but he's definitely trouble! I hope someone picks this manga up, because I am ready for more! Thanks scanlators for doing this much so far!

No. 1: The slowness of scanlation. I really (potentially) liked this story when I first discovered it years ago, but lacked, and continue to lack, the extraordinary patience necessary to follow it.

No. 2: The presence of the Shoujo Curse. I had just started tentatively reading some shoujo when I stumbled upon this highly unusual shoujo manga that has both good art (by shoujo standards), and a very non-shoujo-standard heroine. I was starting to enjoy her story thoroughly when there appeared on the scene that standard shoujo character the Smooth Operator. One thing I had learned by that point in my shoujo reading was that girls literally can't resist these guys, even if they start out hating them. Something female readers may not know (or care about!) is that most male readers can't identify with such men at all. I'm one of those. Therefore, as Our Heroine started out justly suspicious of Mr. Smooth Operator, and then gradually began to warm to him, and as I recalled that the only other male in the running for her affections was too nice to have a chance within the terms of the shoujo universe, my interest in this manga quickly waned.

Recommended for girl and woman readers who are very patient.

I like Tomoyo and Madoka's relationship. It's just beautiful for me (I'm not bothered by the age gap at all, it isn't that big to begin with) I rly hope they don't break up or anything coz there are so many things going on in the series and it's kind of hard to keep up. Sometimes I stop and think "What is going on??" But I honestly don't mind where the series is heading just as long as Madoka doesn't end up with Ono.

I like the art. Somehow, manga with similar art like Bitou Lollipop always seemed to have a good story plot.

Great but disappointing in the end

I really liked the art and the fact that this wasn't the typical Shoujo with a really naïve and weak heroine etc... However I didn't like how the plot evolved in the lasts volumes

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Seriously, she just had to be a little bit more honest and Tomoyo didn't have to disappear like that. I didn't like the pitiful Madoka at that time (and why the short hair? She was so cute before with her long hair!) and that part of the manga was depressing...

As for their reunion in the end, I expected something more touching, and explicit. Seriously I don't even remember if they kissed at least!

So much potential but it could have been a lot better in the end.

Intriguing Plot

Iketani sensei's drawings are much more attractive than in Six Half. As usual, she pulls off a suspenseful plot that pulls you in with it's mysterious, yet believable characters. She writes suspense very well, so be sure to have time on your hands before reading it. The story does deal with some mature themes, though, so if you're looking for a fluffy shoujo, search elsewhere. Great story so far, anyways! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a realistic and thoughtful manga.

Good Female Lead!

The heroine is down-to-earth, open, intelligent, and confident in herself without being conceited. She's really very likable...but I really haven't grown to like any of the other characters. In fact, as time goes by, I seem to like them less and less. They are all very selfish (especially her parents) and none of them think of how their actions affect her or anyone else. The art is good, and the plot is interesting, but I really hope to see some good in some of the characters in furture chapters.

This is a shoujo that stands out from the crowd. There are underlying elements of low-key mystery and unrequited desires that gives this romcom an edge. This manga is reasonably well-drawn from the start, and it's extremely funny.

Because the heroine isn't a cold pillar of self-reliant ice and nonexistent tear ducts, I wouldn't call her strong. She is codependent on her relationships to an extent, but she isn't an overemotional puddle of tears and inferiority complexes either. The two male leads also have their own dreams and problems to deal with and don't dedicate every waking moment to thinking about the heroine. Interactions between characters seem to be more complex than the average shoujo.

A gem.

I came upon this by luck and decided to read it because of the beautiful cover (of Madoka and Tomoyo). I hesitated at first because the artwork wasn't very good (I'm very picky on the art), but I kept reading because I was so hooked into the story. It's really unique and funny. And the art is actually pretty beautiful. Totally worth your time! I usually dislike it when the female is older than the guy, but this is an exception ^^. The heroine is really strong (not in the way you would think so) and admirable... and not the type of girl who fusses about their looks or not having a boyfriend. If you're looking for something refreshing, new, funny, and cute, read this!!

Please update this faster ;w; I'm dying from the lack of non-cliche shoujo mangas..

It's a must read. Honestly, I was a bit hesitating before reading this manga because of the artwork but later then, I decided to read it and I don't regret it! The artwork becomes more and more beautiful once you get used to it. Furthermore, the storyline is different, but surprisingly good. <3
Give it a try if you have time, guys. biggrin
