Unique and well-written take on Romance  
by Akemi Mokoto

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
Unlike most romance manga, which like to blend comedy, drop in nonsensical moments of drama no couple would experience or romance that doesn't even reach kissing until the final page of the final chapter, Scum Wish does something different and does it well. It takes the romance genre to a more realistic level, at least for the age of the characters and the country it's from. Plus, each character is extremely unique, well drawn and the best part is that the romance develops chapter after chapter instead of developing ones every 20 chapters like other romance manga. So this is an excellent work of art in my book.

Good art, story has no real flow, nonsensical

The art was good, but the manga literally did not have a flow. One moment they’re in one location one moment they’re in another, then we’re in someone’s head then we’re in another persons head.

People could delude themselves and say this is a story of unrequited love or something deep. It’s more like a highschool drama with unlikable people who have nothing but flaws, and are always horny, who, I swear, have mental illness (schizophrenia?).

Ugly and realistic

If you’re looking for a heartwarming story, this is not it. If you are looking for likeable characters, this is not it. If you are looking for redemption, this is not it. Instead you’ll find a story that explores the ugliest desires of our heart and how it manifests itself in our relationship with others.

As an adolescent, we all hear about romantic love but do we really know what it’s like to desire that kind of affection? How far will you go for infatuation? At what point in a relationship does love actually exist?

The characters aren’t warriors of justice. They’re flawed, selfish, immature, and do stupid things fueled but their desires. They don’t know how to properly share how they feel or manage their emotions. In these aspects, they’re brutally realistic. We all want a fairy tale love story, but ugly and painful feelings remind us we’re alive. This manga makes you sit with unpleasant feelings and many may not like it.

I tried to read this. I gave it a chance. It's nasty. This needs to have the romance genre removed because this ain't romance. It's just a bunch of mentally ill people fooling around with anyone they can get their hands on.

The ending was good but still not quite right. Kinda vague because we couldnt really see what happened to them after. Did they finally become happyconfused? Or did all of that bs about letting each other go end up in vainconfusedconfusedconfused? WE DONT FUCKING KNOW

So lonely and heartbreaking

I was searching for something exactly like this, that is well written.
My heart is breaking and throughout the stort, I felt I could relate and agree witb a lot of elements and ideas presented in this manga. Equally, the characters' stories left a lump in my throat, especially when they cry. Their tears portrayed such strong emotions....
And the ending was so beautiful. Highly recommended.

Unlike I guess a lot of other people, I really liked the ending. Maybe not the manga for you if you just want ships to happen. I think the relationships portrayed are done very well by the author because sometimes love is vague and those that seem undeserving of someone kind do. Relationships aren't perfect, cute, fluffy things that are often shown in manga.

The panel where Hana and Mugi have their last hug and their thoughts really hit me hard.
Relationships end and start, the two figure that they do like each other but not in a healthy or in the way they want.

The story is pretty twisted and a good bittersweet romance in my opinion. A lot of people hate on the teacher but she is there for a reason.

The art is also really good.

So they go through all of this shit with all these different people to realize they like each other, and then decide not to get together because it's not based on love? What? So the slut who destroys men gets a happy ending, but our leads don't?

The pain of unfulfilled love  
by Dr. Love

Rating: N/A
Great bittersweet romance that deals with adolescent love adeptly. Hanabi is a great thoughtful female MC whose character is immensely developed. Each character gets their own shine. Though Moca could've benefited of some more and definitely Kanai-sensei. The strong core cast of this story are Hanabi, Mugi, Akane and Ecchan. The art is delicate yet pretty.

Starts good, great middle, disappointing in the end

Alright, this manga series actually made me create an account for this webside to write the following comment. I will try to talk about the manga without direct situations, but it will be a rather big spoiler nevertheless.

The series starts promising, with a clear 2 main character plot a little bit more focused on the perspective of the female protagonist. The structure in which the story is told is only more or less linear, but makes very good use of flashbacks to show what the other characters knew and felt beforehand. It is a bit like Memento that the plot falls into places after several chapters sometimes, even if the original szene is already done for a while. Full points on story telling and art from my side.

With a good, but maybe a tad bit slow start the series is a great read as soon the author gives dept not only to the second Main Character, but also to the side characters. With flashbacks we get insight in their motivations and much more important: In their own a bit screwed but normal perspectives on the world. This is where the manga shines, as he uses the plot to portray the emotional world of anyone not ending up in a happy relationship. I tried listing the different motives that were familiar to me in this series, but to cut it short: It very well displays the tension and feelings between appearance and inner perspective, love and selflove, desires and admiration and more general the different prospects on love. The high point of this series in my opinion is chapter 13 where we get a good understanding of the inner life of one of the important side characters.

Afterwards it goes downhill. It doesn't end up being a bad series, but I have to admit that I stopped by chapter 29, picked it up again to read to chapter 33, just to see that it got even worse. On the one hand the tension build up can't be kept for such a long time. I wish for a good, a bad or just a realistic end, but no avail. Some might find it to be realistic, but it falls into the typical japanes plotholes. Newly introduced problems feel a bit artificial, as talking could resolve them easely or there are a bit far fetched, because japanese dating culture is a bit strange, when seen from the west. While a struggle with depression or two-timing might be an appropriate thing to end/follow along on one character developement, but on all of them? I've read that japanese had a different connotation or cultural imbeddedment for fucking around, but that's a bit much even for a liberal western big city boy. I started to find the actions incomprehensible and cringeworthy - a rather big change from the initial good start and storytelling.

I've been in several situations displayed in this manga myself and at a certain point you have to stand up and open yourself, talk about it and if shit is not going to work out, get up and leave. I still give this manga a grand total of 8 points for making me stirred up quite a bit, which could be considered an archievement.
