I don't know why....

I really don't know why, but I do feel.... a certain melancholy.
It was indeed a wonderful read: the atmosphere is incredibly endearing, the characters are lovely and compelling, and in the end you just want them to live happily ever after. I mean both the kids and the adults. The art is sweet to the verge of tears, really, however, like I said, in the end you can't quite grasp what is missing. Or perhaps nothing is really missing but a secure, positive sense of closure, in which circumstance it's not the artist's fault but the artist's genius. This is not to say the manga is anything near inconclusive or open-ended - it's not. There's only this painful colour (something to do with the art, can it be?) that makes you feel a little empty in the end, or perhaps with too many feelings. I've never experienced anything quite like this.

Please just read it.

It was a nice and gentle read
I really wish there was more T.T
The couples were very adorable and the best words I can use to describe it is "warm, fuzzy, and soft"
definitely worth reading

First Impression...

After getting past the first impression this left and reading the rest as almost a different story it was a cute slice of life of the characters. You never got really pulled into the characters themselves - just a lot of surface interactions and simple romance. I feel there could have been a lot more depth if several pages had not been wasted on such a bad misunderstanding/first impression set up.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The false rape/incest with step-parent was in poor taste. Not only did the mangaka set it up that the love interest misunderstood but also very deliberately (and admittedly skillfully) twisted it to make the reader also believe our protagonist was in an unwanted sexual relationship with his not-blood-related-father. Then to turn around and laugh at the love interest for protecting him based on that deliberate mislead just further rubbed salt in the insult.

However, after that initial sub plot, the story is a simple and sweet romance good for a quick read.

the main couple was cute but kinda meh. minimal characterization and seemed run of the mill.

i LOVED the story about sunohara's parents, especially motoi the trans man. i need his backstory right now!!!

"I thought you had a beautiful face."

Different. No angst. Hopeful. Somehow, educational.

To reiterate what some others have said, Mizu no Haru has fantastic, three-dimensional characters that sucker you into worrying for their wellbeing and mental health. This, despite a very positive (even idyllic), calm feeling permeating the entire work. This feeling ends up giving you a sense of closure, apparently, but I'd tweak that observation to say that there's a simple, sweet tinge of nostalgia at work. There's this "you don't have to regret anything, ever" stance taken by the couples in Mizu no Haru. I don't know that this trivializes the homophobia that's probably inspired by the author's reality and that keeps forming the one and only obstacle; personally, I think it's reassuring.

...That said, there's a lot of sameface and even a couple of big ol' yaoi hands making their appearance, so no 10/10 for you !!! #mess #handsfordays #lorthahmercy

I do wish the author could have continued to be more prolific and improve their style. Their writing is fantastic. As it is, PLEASE TAKE SOME TIME AND GO TO ACME-DAN'S SITE... DOWNLOAD THIS IMMEDIATELY, grab some tea or coffee, and enjoy.

There's something very subdued about this manga. It's sweet, but not saccharine. It's not too much of anything which makes it feel like somehow it's not enough; but because of that it's not overly burdened by tropes or cliches, which is refreshing in this genre. I highly recommend reading this series if you haven't already. It's only one volume, the art is beautiful (although it is a sketchy style, if you dislike that), and the characters are more or less three-dimensional. I really enjoyed this manga; I wish there was a sequel to see where the relationship between Sunohara and Yoshino goes.

It felt slightly boring. Even though it had some drama the general feeling was very low in energy. I couldn't get excited at all over the characters.
Not bad, but not really good either.
