About a woman caught between 2 people. Her former lover and husband.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The only one you should feel bad for is the husband. A nice guy who's brother takes his wife from him. The bitch is conflicted for the longest time only to cheat on him with his brother at the end. The real kicker is that she cheats on her husband while he's in the fucking hospital. She claims she doesn't want to be with either of them, but she will probably end up with the brother who was a gigantic piece of shit. He even tells his brother (husband) that he will sleep with her if he wants. What really baffled me she was supposedly conflicted, but her actions contradicted that.

this manga is perfect. seriously.
definitely one of the best josie manga out there
the characters were perfect, each and every one of them, even the mother.
let me tell you something, this is coming from a girl who read hundreds of stories with the same premise before, but i dont think i ever enjoyed a love triangle this much before.
one thing that makes this manga unconditional, is how you can completely feel the pain of all the characters, especially the main girl. another thing is, the main girl was amazing, it didnt take her too long to figure out what she wants and she dealt with her decision in a very mature way.
i really enjoyed reading this manga, dont miss out on this one coz it really is one of the best josies you'll ever come across

I held off this manga for ages, because of fear it would be just another melodramatic clichéd love story. The premise is clichéd,

Woman torn between 2 brothers, explosive lover and kind man, really?
but the characters are surprisingly well developed. Unlike other commenters, I actually don't find Sarasa indecisive at all, the mangaka managed to protray her emotions while still keeping her

faithful to her husband and not crossing the line into annoying shoujo b*tch

Too dramatic, but all in all, much better than I expected.

Yeah, I can get that it was rather mature but there was just too much crying, too much conflict and so on. Rather, there were many times when the characters could've simply stepped away. Yet they didn't. Why? For the sake of having a 2 volume story, that is. Besides, I don't like characters who spend all their time getting upset nor scenarios which feel heavily scripted.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
By having both of them being brothers and having the story being a tear-jerker and slightly depressing story only made the storyline even worse.
I'm sure that there was some sort of message or even moral conflict to be found. However, it was drowned by all that melodrama.

I liked it at first but it got really overly dramatic towards the middle. Honestly everything that happened is the Sarasa's fault. She created the mess for herself to fall into and selfishly ask others to agree to her requests to ease her conscience. She doesn't even considers Rin's feeling's. Everyone was in pain because of her decisions. She's completely undecisive; which is the worst quality I find in typical shoujos.

I didn't finish this manga yet. But I think it's just a little more realistic than usual. That's why I liked the weakness of the characters : the mother, the brothers and the woman who is engaged and can't throw away his pride just for the name of love. In real life, aren't we all like that ?

most annoying main character...

Oh Lord, i dont think i have read anything so annoyingly dramatic. Sarasa has to be the most idiotic heroine i have ever seen, all she does is cause pain to both of the guys, and uses both of them when its convenient for her, she doesnt seem to mind hurting the man she supposedly loves, she was the most selfish weak pathetic character i have ever seen in a manga. one character that annoyed me too was the girl with short black hair, she seemed to be permanently attached to the main guy in the manga. the husband was also pathetic, his wife leaves him, and he still tries to control when the two get back together. the only good thing about this character is that Rin changes for the better, but in some ways i would have preferred him with the black haired chick rather than the pathetic Sasara.

Although the series up to the end mainly had me close to tears, I think that the hope and their sincerity made it worthwhile in a way.

I felt this manga for a josei should have been better but it was way too dramatic, thankfully though the way things developed was far better and made me glad i read it. The art also got better after the first volume.

Its quite a change from the shoujo manga I enjoyed but still a good read. I just wish there was a chapter of them reuniting together... but maybe I'm asking for too much. This is josei, I was warned in the beginning. I went to sleep at chapter 6, what a drag! I kept on thinking what the next chapter was all about...
