Woah. When coming on here, I was all like "I don't need to throw my two cents in. We can all see how mediocre this is."
But apparently that's not the case, as the other two comments are positive. I suppose it all depends on your point of view... And how many times you've seen the same cliches. xD
Anyways, for those considering reading this, here's my opinion:

This manga was mediocre at best. The whole thing was so rushed it was funny. Some big, horrible, dramatic thing would occur, and five pages later the issue was resolved. Three more pages, and the next big, horrible, dramatic problem arises. She fell in "love" with the male lead in some indeterminate amount of time; but I'd estimate it at around two weeks. Even though right near the start she'd claimed that she was romantically attracted to someone else.

(Her brother)
Two weeks, to get over someone you'd loved for years and fall madly in love with some guy you just met.
On top of being rushed, it was just plain bad. Right at the start if the second chapter, you find out that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Her and her brother weren't blood relatives, and he even loved her back.
The aforementioned fact is confessed to the male lead, but not to the female lead, whom it actually concerns. It was discussed for the two or three pages in which it was revealed and explained and then never mentioned again. And that ending was just plain awful:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Her brother, who died in a car accident at the start of the first chapter and returned as a ghost in the end of it; can no longer remain in the human world for reasons the mangaka could not be bothered to explain - reasons the female lead doesn't even question. She finds this out when she is a ghost as well, standing in front of him in a random meadow I assume to be part of the spirit world. She, however, is not dead, and can still return to her body if she wishes. Or, instead, she can go with her "beloved" brother, living with him forever as a ghost. She chooses to live. That doesn't bother me. It's her reason for choosing life that bothers me: It is not the cliche reason you would expect, which is that she is so madly in love with this guy she just met that she chooses him over the only family she's ever known. Nor is it the awesome reason I wasn't naive enough to hope for but was air-headed enough to wish for; which is that she actually grew a backbone and decided that, in fact, she doesn't need to constantly be around people to survive. Maybe, just maybe, she could actually walk on her own two feet, slowly get over her brother's death and gradually move on with her life, eventually becoming a strong, self-reliant young woman.
But no. It wasn't for either of those reasons. It was because she wouldn't need to be alone. That was all she ever talked about the entire manga. "I don't wanna be alone, I don't wanna be alone". It was like she didn't even care who she was with as long as they doted on her sufficiently.

It didn't even have any cute fluffiness to help wash down the cliches.

Wow. o_o
Well, that is my way longer, way rant-y-er, and way meaner than intended review. I honestly don't think it was quite as bad as I made it sound, but those are all the facts of what happened in the manga, listed in the correct order. It was okay, and the art was cute and different, so still a decent read if you're bored.

It was good enough to make me sob like a baby for a moment there. For some reason the ending made me super sad even though it was incredibley happy.. Maybe its because it was kind of bittersweet.

I like this manga a lot. The artwork was nice, and refreshing to look at. Although it was a bit too short, and it would've been nice if the mangaka expanded on the backstory, and maybe added more depth to the characters. The ending also seemed a bit rushed, with events just suddenly happening, so I felt a bit lost. But overall the characters were endearing, the plot not overly cliched, and it was quite sad in some places. I reccommend it for a nice, albeit quick read.
