urrgh -.-.... I just finished reading this manga and all in all I can't say that it was bad because it had me pretty hooked and I finished reading this story in 2 days...but there are just some points that I just don't like...

- the first half of the story is pretty much always the same
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Momo likes something/someone >>> Sae steals it >>> momo tries to get it back >>> Sae pulls her next evil trick

after the third repetition of this I couldn't take it anymore but I kept reading
well after some events the "evil" person changed to someone else and the same drama again...

the art is not bad and some of the characters are likable...
my conclusion is that this is a typical shoujo manga with a 100% shoujo heroine and a 100% predictable ending...and for the next few weeks I'm cured from this genre XD

Characters are AMAZING. Drawn beautifully.
Story is wonderful! Yes is does have a lot of drama. Well. What can you say? Most Award Winning Work out there have lots of DRAMA in them. smile
The story isn't complicated as much as some people say it was. I actually understand it perfectly from beginning to end. It does have a twisted story but it's not that much confusing that you won't understand it. Actually, it is also one of the reason why am I so hooked to this manga. It just make so curious to what will happen next :>

Overall. It really is AMAZING :> One of the best I've read lately. I only gave a 9 because it failed to move me to tears on drama scenes. biggrin

It is a ton of drama. I want to strangle all but two of the major characters, especially the fetus. That thing can only be The Antichrist. Everyone seemed to come out better except for the blonde haired fellow, who will go off the be a rapist.

So, when I began this manga and the main character was with the main guy and everything, I was like "How sweet~"
But then there came Sae and thus she began to create mischief for the protagnists and I was at the edge of my chair, waiting for the mains to learn the truth. It continued liked this and by the next trap/misunderstanding Sae made, I was pretty much annoyed and I began to wonder, are her plans actually genius? My conclusion was no, and I decided the main characters were pretty darn stupid for:
1.Giving Sae chances despite knowing her evil-ness
2.Falling for those frikin tricks over and over.

And I have to say, I really like Momo if not for her naivety. I mean, seriously.
As for the main guy, he's REALLY naive or even just stupid.

So for me, these series were pretty...annoying.

This is one of the few mangas that I prefer the anime to the manga. I'm sorry, but it's true! The way Kairi's seiyuu says "Momo-chan!" just made me adore it - doesn't help that I watched it first, but then again, maybe I wouldn't have found the will to read it through if I hadn't. But yeah, it's the anime that earns it the 10/10 for me. (The manga is probably more of an 8 or so, but I haven't finished it just yet...)

I enjoyed this series, I've read alot of manga so I was pretty sure who she'd end up with but I had my doubts from time to time towards the end.

I didn't find Sae that annoying, some people seemed to hate her, I can't really see why, she plays the villain and she does it good. I was more annoyed at Toji for being so naive from time to time in the start.
Momo was also a bit annoying at some points but it was all really realistic tbh.
Some parts was a bit like, "why can't they just be straight with eachother" but it drove the stort on in a nice way. One of the best love triangle stories I've ever read.

P.S. I've seen this manga around for quite some time but always hesitated to pick it up because of comments and I didn't really take a liking to the cover of the book... It's really worth reading tho

Hahaha this manga is insaaaaane. It was the first manga I ever read and thus it does hold a fond place in my heart, but really, it's actually kinda awful. But kinda awful in a good way. It's like a love triangle gone super wrong and crazy, but kinda done right as well since at some points you really don't know who the main character will end up with (although more experienced shoujo readers probably would know...) but yeah, by the end, I realized it's really kinda stupid, but somehow i still like it, perhaps since it's my first manga... The character development is pretty good in the first half, but I feel like after a certain point they start focusing on the drama too much and the plot just spins out of control. Although by the end she ends up with someone, you really doubt how long the relationship will last because of all the swinging she does within the series...

I just started to watch the anime and it's not half bad. I mean, yeah it's the usual shojo manga, but at the same time it has a "real life" aspect to it. The artwork isn't the worst i've seen in a manga, and the storyline isn't half bad either. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves the romance/drama genres. To tell the truth, this isn't something i'd pick up again though...

I read this manga a few years ago and i liked it. After reading the comments on this site i had to reread it because i was shocked by the number of unsatisfied people. I think the plot was very good. The situations may be a little over exaggerated but they can also be believable. I don think Momo was a bitch. She's a teenage girl. Pretty or not it believable that a teenage girl cant decide what she wants and has a tough time making real friends. When one guy dumps u, move to the next. Sae was a good character too. Females can be that malicious. The manga really did have many cliche parts but so does life. I think people are being to critical. It's a romance story thats meant to be based on struggles with love. What were you expecting?

I for one enjoyed the series. It bought back memories of reading a simple good manga. smile

Frustrating series to read.

When I first started out reading this series, I really loved it. But now I hate it. Why? Because of the frustration I had when I watched each situation unfolds. No, it wasn't Sae's fault. Sae played the perfect manipulative villain. 2 thumbs up for Sae. She's the total star of this series.

What frustrated me was Momo. She's supposed to be the heroine of the story. More of the victim of the story instead. Momo pisses the hell out of me and she's do I say it? Weak? Indecisive? Stupid? Or all of the above? And she didn't even end up with her first crush. I guess good guys in this series are doom to be girlfriend-less. Sure, the shoujo-cliche of having the boy saving the girl isn't uncommon, but to have her not able to stand up on her and tackle the problem by herself? Come on, I want to see some girl power here! No damsel in distress!

What started out with a good potential story ended up be the worst story you want to read. Avoid it at all cost.
