This is NOT a light read!

Don't be fooled by people saying this is a light read; this it is not! It's heavy, depressing and it gave me the ugly cry... But the story was incredibly beautiful (and very well written) and definitely worth your time. This moved my soul.

I still gave it a 9/10, because it felt incomplete. You'll know what I mean, when you get to the last page (-_-)

The pacing and story telling was good. The story was subtle and I feel that the characters actually lived. I often missed that living character feel in other manga and I think this is what makes it special. The issues doesn't really surprise me though... It can really happen in real life and reading this, it makes us think about life. Haaa... I like it very much.. I actually feel sad when it ended.. Thats a first-time for me...

Art is good. Story is consistent and well thought. It all comes through as quite emotional piece that is not over the top. I am sad that it is such a short story. Although there is wasted potential to tell more, author uses it to deliver feeling of sadness and loss.

I thought something looked familiar while I was reading this...
Lo and behold, the author of this fantastic short read also authored Meteor Methuselah, and I have to say, while the art is certainly familiar, this is quite the progression from her work, in a really good way! This is definitely a much more mature style and in my opinion maybe reflects the mangaka's own growth as an artist. Somehow, it even resonated with my own growth - I really enjoyed Meteor Methuselah in my teens, now I'm loving this manga. Anyways, I could write about how this manga is all hit-the-right-spots-seinen-maturity-coming-of-age-slice-of-lifey goodness, or I could just say that I think this manga will not waste your time, and that I highly recommend it!

Kami-sama ga Uso o Tsuku is about a boy who after befriending a girl is unsure about his choices in life. It is a tale of innocence lost and a child's dependence on adults to teach him/her the ways of life. At least, that's the way I took it.
It's short and features elementary children, so of course, there's ambiguity in the ending. But I feel that the length is just right for the story it tells.

Well done.
I felt a connection with this story, and the young main characters who still look at life so brightly, it's too much. The ending was so touching.
(can't even write a good review, but just know It's a one of a kind story, very well done)

Although this story stars primary school children, it deals with some mature themes, and the two main characters themselves are quite mature. Don't let the age of the characters turn you away.

Kami-sama ga Uso o Tsuku was really short, and I was sad to see it end so quickly, but at the same time, I think it was the perfect length. It was a beautiful story, really touching, well-written, well-illustrated, with lovable (and also despicable) characters. What I particularly loved was how introspective it was, and how tightly-focused it was on the main characters; it's my kind of read. Maybe I wanted more of an epilogue, but I think that's just because I'm spoilt; the ending is very good, just as it is.

Naturally, because they're simply children and this story takes place in their childhood, I wonder if there would have been a future for them... but nevertheless, because of their simple commitment and their mature understanding (and because I just want to), I choose to believe there will be.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a short, complete, drama-romance slice-of-life. I'm looking forward to this Ozaki Kaori's next work... One day I may even try her older work, despite it being shoujo.

The art is what first interests me to read it. It's very well drawn and coloured. I like the style quite a lot. But the point is the story (am I right?)

The story first seemed to be somewhat typical. Then the twist around the middle of the story made me 'wow'. Kami-sama ga Uso o Tsuku secretly develops feelings inside readers, then destroys the barrier covering them harshly--resulting in a great effect on your heart. It does presumably the best for what a short romance-drama story can do: go all out at one time. That one all-out is extremely effective, which makes the story so memorable. The end is also good, but seems to be able to be better.

Having 5 chapters is OK, yet I think it's a bit rushed at the end, leaving some things and issues unsolved. Thinking about it again, I'm quite annoyed by the 'introduction' part which is not really relevant to the story.

Some parts of the story are not sensible (it's elementary kids after all...), but that doesn't really matter because this is so emotional, and I love that. This story is not a pure tragedy, nor is it a complete comedy (in the sense of 'happy'). It stays somewhere appropriate in the middle.

It's absolutely awesome; I love this series so much that I willingly-blindly rate it this high. This is one of very few manga's with the rating of more than 9 from me. And I'm adding other series by the author to my wish list now..
