Typical ups and downs josei but good

The story can get a bit incosistent, anticlimatic at times. Skipped timeline gives a hole and complicated characters development is irritating. Even Madoka, to no end. I think the real-life drama help the overal look. Everybody stay true to their personality and it's good. The never ending misunderstanding just happen between the fl and ml.

Mature Themes  
by Divina=^.^=
January 15th, 2018, 3:52pm
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
A shoujo demographic manga that reads very much like a good josei. It deals with many mature themes, such as "breaks" in married life, loneliness, infatuation vs. having true comfort and friendship in a relationship, estrangement, as well as some psychological issues. Throughout all this, the overwhelming feeling this manga gives off is one of tenderness and warmth. It goes straight to the heart without much funfair or cutesy scenes. In short, it feels real. I heartily recommend it, especially if you are bored of reading the same old, same old high school stories.

I liked this overall, but...

there were quite a few characters I hated with a passion. The male and female leads were good, but they were surrounded by terrible people.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Madoka - I liked her, but she was kinda fickle and cruel. She dates Tomoyo and while dating him, she falls for Ono. She told Tomoyo she only saw him as a little brother and broke up with him. She likes Ono and then gets over him. Then she realizes she loves Tomoyo and has to deal with the fact that he's with someone else. Well, it's kind of her own fault all this happens because of her fickle feelings. She looked super cute with short hair in the second half.

Tomoyo - I liked Tomoyo. He was pretty tsundere, but considering some of the stuff he was going through then it's not surprising. I felt really bad when Madoka dumped him because she fell for that piece of shit Ono. He doesn't handle Madoka breaking up with him very well. Even though he's madly in love with her, due to the fact she hurt him and said she only sees him as a little brother, he felt tormented.

Ono - This motherfucker. He was in an affair with Tomoyo's mother. He was like the worst piece of shit character I've seen in a manga like this in a long time. The only thing I hated about the female lead, Madoka is that she falls for this idiot at one point. His brother is a piece of shit as well. He was slightly better after the timeskip.

Tomoyo's mother - She was the second worst after Ono. Now, it's clear that Tomoyo's dad worked a lot, but this woman was an awful fucking person. Instead of talking it out with her husband, she decides to cheat on him with a highschooler. She was very overbearing with Tomoyo and it came off as both of them having complexes about each other. The thing is her cheating on his dad caused him to have a hatred of her.

Madoka's dad - Another piece of shit who abandons his family to shack up with a prostitute. Aside from Madoka's mom, the prominent parents in this manga are awful fucking people.

Madoka's mom - She was cool.

Chizuru - She was a cool character as well. Sucks that she dies.

Runa - She was Tomoyo's unstable girlfriend. She was a pretty awful person as well.


Other than some awful character, it was a pretty good manga.

A bit dissapointing

I kinda like it at the beginning cause I thought the heroine was different from those shoujo stereotypes that I've countlessly read before.
But as the story progress it went downhill for me and it pains me to read it. I kinda stick to it till the end cause I want to know what happens to Tomoya.
Although it was a happy ending, it was kinda exhausting for me in finishing this. All the unnecessary shinanegans and the female lead being indicieve and dense made me really irritated...
It's only my opinion though...

It started out very good, the characters were really well written however the translation is lacking and was confusing sometimes.

And it's somewhat sad for me.

I am definitely happy for Tomo and Madoka. But it's Ono that makes my heart aches still even at the end. Since last year, I have been reading a bit of love triangles. And somehow, all the good bits have two really good guys. But one of them is always (a little bit) misunderstood and at certain degree sacrificing by letting the girls go. And it's just a tad retarded that they would eventually find a super speed love at a few pages, worse panels, at the end. I mean, come on! How decent can the mangaka be for these poor lovefools? Or maybe I should blame the manga publisher and the magazine. Goddammit!

Anyhow, it IS a really good read. But my heart aches too much that I hardly think I can read it again, at least for a very long while.

[End of 2018 Update] I kept my words, I read it again today. It's Ono that's still a puzzle to me, or he is quite unexplored (maybe intentionally by the mangaka). And I still disagree with his treatment towards the end.

And before I forgot, this manga development is real good. REAL life stuff (some can be compared while others I've yet to experience/observe/witness to have a say) with the good and not-so-good stuff. The latter included muddled, full of confusing and contradicting events. At the end of the day, there's grow and clarification. The communication in this is quite good too: both inner-self and between/among individuals.

Very good manga but too sad for me

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!

TWO DEADLY DRAWBACKS  
by cecropiamoth

Rating: N/A
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.
