Damn I liked how It started I was kinda hoping for satomi being more brave but she ended up being so hopeless I really liked her at first bc she was going to revenge and forget about him BUT damn didn't happen she ended up being just a replacement. I hate that. I don't like the guy either, but I'm quite sure about his feeling for satomi's sister.
The plot was going to be so good but as always the girl lose her pride.
Such a sad ending. but the extra story was really catching.

This story starts off quite screwed up, but it makes it worthwhile to read. What makes it damned near impossible to keep going is the shitty English and out of order pages. Everything is all over the place. I'd like to say the mangaka screwed up and didn't make her characters very consistent, but how can I be certain when the scanlators jumbled it up? I know it's a lot of work to scanlate, I did it for many years, but I felt like I was listening to a bunch of fobs trying to tell a story and I hate hearing that from my family or at work; I hate it even more in my head!!

First of all.....WHAT THE HELL... The main male character's personality is all over the place.. He is so twisted, weird, and I don't understand his real intentions and I really liked the female lead until the moment when she becomes obsessed with the guy.. i really felt bad for her.. But I wanted to hit her so she could wake up and give up on him. I actually preferred the other guy..
And the story..I felt that the story wasn't felt that there were some missing chapters and since the chapters weren't in order, I was kind of confused at first..

I like the story but it feels like it lacks something like the details. I don't understand the male lead and his real intentions. Maybe the author wants to leave everyone wondering what will happen next, it's already completed though. Such a cliffhanger. Oh well, some things are better left unknown. Is it really completed already? -_-

Interesting and a little twisted. Not as bad as the rating indicates.

The last chapter which tells the story from the sister's perspective helped to make the story much clearer. It has intriguing and complex plot but the execution is a little bit messy. The main guy character is true intention are really hard to figure out, i feel like his actions illogical sometimes.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
his competency as a doctor and his silent but unwavering for the sister is what makes me like him. But the way he treat the girl is so messed up. One day he insists they get married, one day he refuses to marry her. Make up your mind! And for the main girl character, people condemn her for being
weak-willed, but I understand how she turned out that way. She had real deep inferiority complex and judging by her reaction after hearing the nice guy confession in the last few pages, thought that no one has ever cared for her. Poor her. She missed a chance of happiness with the nice guy. At least the ending seems to imply a better future for both of them or else this is gonna be too depressing.

It's pretty bad when you have to reread every half a sentence because it's not making sense. It really messed with the flow.
Sad thing is, I think this is one of those twisted stories I would normally like. Here's to hoping some other group translates this better ... but even then I would only give this a 7 maybe a 8.5
