I'm not crying my tear glands are connected to the ocean

Okay, I'm not crying nor are my tear glands are connected to the ocean,but... I loved it!!!! I've always loved a good tragedy, but I didn't quite want anything tragic to happen. That's how much the author involved me in the story. The ending was unclear so that gave me the freedom to create my own.

Kou is no longer brain dead, and married his girlfriend. Takuma and Mayu are married. Kou's brother and Mayu's friend are also together. Now the story continues with a love triangle surrounding the children.

To be honest, I've got a teary eye while reading several mangas. But there are only 3 that had seriously made me cry from the bottom of my heart: Full Moon wo Sagashite, Fruits Basket and Boku Kimi. Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu felt realistic throughout the whole series. The romance was extremely beautiful between Mayu and Takuma.

SPOILERS: I had kept swallowing my tears throughout the whole series, until Kou collapsed and "died". That broke me into pieces. I couldn't stop crying. Then it was Takuma's letter to Mayu before the surgery that had me crying so much. I was so sure that he was going to die. But then the last page turned the tears of agony into the ones of happiness and relief.

The best thing about the manga was the balance. It was tragic, it tore my heart into pieces. But it also made me laugh so hard. Funny and happy moments they all balanced it so well. Oh god, this is my new favourite manga!

I cried throughout the whole thing, I have read so many other tragic manga but this one is the sadist one of them all. In the end my eyes were all puffy and I was all red :')
The romance in it is so bitter-sweet, the art is unique and detailed and the plot is AWESOME
I highly recommend this :')

This is one of the best ones in my personal opinion. I've read heaps of series but most seem to lack depth. I enjoyed this series more than most mainstream stuff because at the very least, it managed to make me believe in their love for each other. Admittedly there are times when they are selfish, rash, or make you want to shake them, but at the same time, if they didnít act like that out of desperation for Takumaís life, it wouldnít make sense in context with their situation. I canít say I absolutely love either of them, but I certainly donít dislike them either. They are flawed and human, and perhaps it drives readers up the wall once in a while but I believe itís mostly due to their circumstances. Iím just satisfied that theyíre not the shallow, brainless types I usually see because in this particular manga, I care more about the overall storytelling than the characters themselves. I just really love the way the mangaka leads us through the story with Takumaís monologues and the smart use of paneling. The tone is very down-to-earth and full of heartfelt feelings without coming across as cheesy. Iíve dropped series upon series that tried to be emotional but just made me cringe from the cheesiness. Obviously this is a sad story, so there are parts that may be heart wrenching, but also parts that are bittersweet or comical. The key is that it is well balanced. The balance is something most artists fail to grasp, but I think Aoki-sensei did an excellent job until the end. On another note, I am personally not a medical student so I donít know how realistic the technicalities are, but Iím just reviewing about the story of Takuma and Mayu trying to fight fate. I think it was refreshing and well-developed. Honestly, you donít have to read much (just one chapter will be enough) to see if you like it or not because they are each pretty representative of the series as a whole. I say definitely try it out if youíre not too prone to tears.

This series almost broke my heart. Like shattered it into itty bitty pieces. I love everything about the manga. The story and the characters; the way it showed their growth and development. It's sad, but it was also heartwarming. Definitely tugged on the heartstrings.
My feelings for Takuma was definitely mixed. I understood why he did and said what he said, but at the same time I think that he would've done a better job if he was honest with himself and with Mayu. It would've certainly made their relationship with each other less painful. I still love the two of them however =]

all i could think was, the main male character is a flipping moron, he wasted so many years that he could have had fun happy memories with the girl he likes, with excuses and stupidity. his measures to protect her only made her more miserable. even if he believed he was dying he should use his time to make the girl he likes happy. he is a moron, and so is the girl for chasing after a man that treats her like crap, and dates another woman to make her hate him.

Although it ended nicely , I can't help but feel disappointed and unsatisfied ...[SPOILER:I mean what was the point in having the story just to have the guy live in the end ??SPOILER] , I know the mangaka tried to please us but I just felt so unsatisfied and completely dumb found ...

For me I was really hesitant about reading this , tbh I skimmed a bit and read the important parts then skipped and so on. The beginning was really sweet and tbh I kind of wish they stayed 12 for a little longer .The story just felt soo unrealistic and I would sat this is more aimed at a younger audience ,now that I think about it after their early stages this was flipping depressing.

I feel like if the mangaka had been a little more bold and more 'out there' it could of been A lot better.'Tragedy' I just don't see this at sad ...not one bit , she/he failed and the ending wasn't very clear either it felt rushed . Overall I would say I have more complaints towards this then pleasant comments , all I say is the reviews are always right , by today this manga is already forgotten , its just left me with a sum what dirty feeling .

It's shoujo manga. It's melodramatic. It's full of does-this-happen-in-real-life situations, and teenage angst. And I just love it for what it is.
Takuma's feelings are really full-on, and it doesn't drag on hopelessly forever. Although it's in the longer manga category, I enjoyed every bit of it and think it's length is pretty justified.
I really like this type of art, too, which is always nice.

On the note for the whole medical accuracy...well. I didn't really expect that to begin with, really...(i mean, would you, for a general shoujo?). But I agree with the point made by Iyransi about the bias against brain death. It's important to remember not everything you read is necessarily true or correct, and your beliefs should be reviewed by something a little more substantial than a fictional read.

The art style was bearable. For a while. But it ended up not captivating me as I went along. It was a pick up and drop series for me. It started out good, but I gradually just became annoyed with the entire thing. The problems got repetitive. There was barely any character development or relationship development. I tried all the way to the end hoping for these things, and it did not deliver, frankly only proving how static and dim witted ALL the characters were. I was really hoping and expecting a lot more since it seemed to be highly recommended.

One of the biggest things that bothered me besides the personalities of the main characters were the parents. The parents were probably some of where I drew the lines of this even being a good manga. They acted as childish if not more so than their off spring.They offered a weak obstacle (the moms so to speak) in their children's relationship.

Needless to say, I was not touched at all. The idea of it was sad and good. But it was not executed well at all. Even the ending did it no justice but made me dislike it even more. I think it was supposed to go into that deep trailing off and suppose-to-make-you-wonder kind of deal. Instead I was frustrated with all the loose ends and cliche cheesiness of it. It wasn't adorable at all it was just a disappointment. Especially the events leading up to it, having no basis for Takuma to not gain the heart from a willing donor. I don't think she did the research especially on Brain Death very well as even her most viable source of info in her manga didn't even take a logical approach to it and I hate to point it out again but this just once again shows the great stupidity radiating in this entire manga. Not to mention that everyone here are emotional driven fools!

This mangaka is highly praised. So I even went and attempted to read her other work. They were as two dimensional, some varying even better than this, if not some even worse. I don't think I will want to pick up a manga from this mangaka again.
