a very interesting and real manga...it started as a shoujo genre, but at this rate, it'll finish as a josei genre, in my opinion...light-hearted romance and a bit of comedy
Sunadokei is sentimental, melancholy, and introspective. I love the tone of the story, but the plot was rather forgettable.
The ending felt rushed and forced, it wasn't very convincing even though it was a fairytale ending which I had hoped for.
Years make for Character Growth
A little cliche at times, but reads well and certainly involves a level of character development. I like who Ann, Daigo, Fuji, and Shika become by the end of the series. They're older and wiser and lament over their decisions less often.
I do wish Ann was less of a stereotypical ditz, though.
yes reallistic and dramatic i understand why peaple like it, but still i read manga so i can escape harsh reallity of life from time to time, but this just bring me right back at it , cant stand it, i just seem like its too heart breaking. i couldnt read it after the first volume. well some people like this stuff a lot. its interesting how some people read manga to feel hard emotions and some to escape from them, mmm perhaps i should start a topic about this... je
I want to know what happened!!!!
This manga was one of the first manga i bought when move to America so it has a special place in my heart. The story is just damn beautiful!! But unfortunately, manga in America is way too expensive for a poor gal, so i result to reading it online (i will buy all of them one day!!! When im a millionaire!).. But this manga isnt finish translating yet! ARGHHHHHHH! The movie didnt give me much hope either.. i just want to know what happens!!
finally got around to finishing this thanks to later volume scans, viva google. how nice would it be if people with mutual feelings could weather all. fact is they can't, life gets in the way. deep stuff. always remember, people's feeling are a witch, and life is all curveballs - people act out of character and no matter how deep sometimes you have to grow apart to come together.

This manga to me just seems to be the type that I start reading and start out to really enjoy then it becomes a little too hard to read. Nothing really all too good ever seems to happen. It's just one drama after another. In the end it seems like the kind of manga that I quit reading then read the end just to see how it turns out.
who's better, Daigo or Fuji ?
honestly, for me Sand Chronicle is one of the best manga that i ever had. it's give a lesson. it's not over a wasted love story but also show the struggle..
and, back to my topic. Daigo is a gentleman, kind, and protective. He is honest too. Fuji is a kind, care, and helpful.
Sometimes, if i dream about Daigo it can be happy. But, Fuji is kind too. Ah ! I don't know who's better but if i can choose one, maybe i would like to choose Daigo.. *LOL
I started reading this, I kid you not, about 12 years ago, in a spanish translation page, and sunadokei was just licensed in spanish, at that time, I didn't know english, the time passed and I read some other chapters in english. I found today that there were scans of the english licensed version. I really liked this manga, is a typical coming of age story, but it's pretty good. I think it was never popular only because it was always licensed, instead of other shoujos of that time (that no one cared if they were licensed) like Hana Kimi or KareKano.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I'm so glad they end up together, they were meant to be
its so damn good this far...i cant wait 2 read more..is daigo would end up with ann? ^o^
