Cool Art, but lacks..

I've read up to chapter 8, and was expectant with the potential this manga had. The art is very good, and not your everyday sparkly-eyed shoujo. Now the content should be predictable yet interesting, but it suffers the major flaw called flow.. There is an abundance of vagueness that is left unjustified for the plot to continue, like school life per se (specially in this unique school), which must've been well-forged in the early chapters. 2) Logic. The protagonists, though strong and virtues, and even other characters, make complex solutions to simple problems. 3)Unrealistic(getting away with kidnapping and other heinous acts w/out getting into jail!!confused), well this is manga! Of course, it's fiction, but it should not be absent of laws. Thus, a certain degree of realism should be present. Even the interaction between protagonists and antagonasts are cliche' and their transformation is too sudden that you won't recognize their previous character...

It's not a bad series, by any means. But what happened in the case of this manga is that the author began with a semi-ridiculous comedy/parody and transformed it into this whole family/school drama that you can't quite take seriously. And all the characters are cliche no matter how you look at it, so the only redeeming factor of this manga is the humor.

It's a bit fluffy, even for my tastes (with all the talk of "justice" and whatnot), and the all the characters (with the possible exception of Dougen) could use a nice smattering of reality into their faces. Or at least, stop trying to act so serious. The plot, which moves at a relatively rapid pace is one part predictable, two parts ridiculous, one part "dramatic." I'm still not sure whether the manga-ka wants the reader to take the so-called drama seriously, but my hunch is that she does, which is a shame. As a whole, the story is put together quite sloppily with what seems like little thought into one sequence of events before plunging into another, sprinkled with cliches and ridiculous yakuza scenes. The balance of drama and comedy (which is I think what she was going for) is poorly executed at best. One minute we have a snapshot of an obviously power-obsessed, reputation-obsessed, and otherwise creepy overbearing family (that is threatening to literally destroy people) and next we have a ridiculous yakuza scene, complete with all the cheesy dialogue.

I really don't know what to say. The way I read it, and the way I recommend people to read it, is lightly. Take all the drama with a grain of salt and laugh it off, because all the situations are so ridiculous. Give the "aww" scenes a little smile and the parody scenes (that can really not be taken any other way) a little chuckle. You do that and this manga is enjoyable.

It's humor. Badly executed at times, and with more drama than many would appreciate in the genre, but it's funny. I gave it a few chuckles, but I'm pretty sure I was just laughing at the ridiculousness of the entire thing, despite the premise being somewhat, and I use the word liberally, original. The cliches the manga-ka threw in are beginning to stack on top of each other, but at least we have a character that is intended to literally be omniscient, the doctor.

My recommendation, to sum it up, is to read it like a comedy. Fast, with little thought, and when you have time to burn. Laugh at the obviously fabricated amounts of drama (it's way too..... far-fetched (that's a nice word) to be real), and enjoy the admittedly ludicrous (and terrible) plotline. And yes, there are actually is one. But it IS funny.

Kind of.

I actually really liked it. Its very well done, and though many say the plot sucks, it doesnt. At first you think; "Ahh, here's some villiany dude who wants to destroy things for no reason and the main characters are going to kick his ass". But, and this is a giant but, thats not how it is.

The antagonist, who in my eyes isnt really a villain, has his reasons for what he does. Although he does what he does in terrible ways, he seems like a pretty honest person (behind that cold exterior). The more I read the more I understand that he is just a young boy trying desperatly not to drown in his own emotions. His loneliness and burdens overwhelm him. In the end, I think he just wants to be seen for himself and be free. And the great thing is... The two protags are learning this and they can't continue to regard him in the same way they had. Slowly, they begin to see that they need to help him first. I can't wait for more scans.

Spoiler: You can't help but feel bad for the guy. His own parents force him to wear handcuffs (which nobody notices) so that he can't escape and his mother makes him "relearn" kindergarten. The whole thing is heartbreaking.

I just read up to ch2 and I have to say, this manga keeps me on my feet. I can't wait for more. For far, it's different then your typical shoujo manga. It involves justice and romance. I can't wait for the romance to come >_< the hero and the heroine are so adorable!

Can't wait to read what happens next. I like the leading characters' transformation. Hoping to see some more interaction from the two, and the doctor seems interesting and mysterious. I like how Mouchida Aki's art is similar to Youko Maki's. ^^

There's a lot of interesting things about the story that I really like but the story just isn't captivating though. She's cute and he's hot, but their romance isn't moving since this is more about fighting for justice etc, etc....The imagine transformation was good, that's always fun to read about. The female lead is strong and intelligent, also a good thing. Bullying was a factor, so I'll give it some points for that. But even with all these things going for it, I was kind of bored.

The first chapters were really gripping and fun, but as the series dragged on it felt like the author had no clue where to go with it. The series is over-dramatic, predictable, and the story becomes bland. The premise was interesting, but it fell short in the later chapters.

The main character is literally a Mary Sue. She has little faults and spends the whole manga fighting for justice in the school system. There is little to no character development. Which is a shame...especially for Naoji's character. He could have really been an interesting character if the author didn't make him so one-dimensional and unfeeling.

The whole story just feels like Hanako vs. Naoji and the the others. They don't go into depth with a lot of the characters. Even the main guy Tarou gets little to no development. Only thing I can say about him is that he's in love with Hanako and will fight anyone who harms her.

The art is good. That's really the only redeeming point for me. This manga should have ended at the 2nd or 3rd volume. It's literally 5 volumes of filler fluff.

I really like the plot and the characteristics of the main characters, very unique, it's not like your typical clique shoujo. The story progression towards the end is really interesting and gets you really hype up. However, I personally think that the ending ruins it all.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I think that everything isn't well explained, especially the last chapter. It's rather rush and messy. All of the sudden one student "rebelled" and they seem to just ignore his rebellion and brush it off with Hanako's "confession". Then the story suddenly ends with a suggestion of building an university beside the highschool and the gang graduated(?) One can easily see how confused I am through this spoiler haha.
