I've never played the game or seen the anime so I can only go on this plotline.

It is different to most school-life shounen romances- [possible spoilers, but not too much]
Spoiler (highlight to view)
rather than spending the majority of the manga trying to get the girl, it happens in the first chapter

it starts out very good, and i kinda understood the protagonists feelings throughout, even though i thought he should have taken control of the situation, but (without details) I didnt agree with the ending at all.

definate spoilers- dont read unless you've finished this
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the plot suddenly takes a turn with two characters attempting to kill each other at the end. this kinda spoiled it for me. it could have been done so much better, the actions were entirely out of character and unbelievable (and not in the good way). i am pretty sure that there are alternatives (and more believable ones) to this.

over all, i recommend this to someone looking for a short, plot filled story. not the best romance I have read, but better than alot of the cliche ones that drag on forever

I'm so shocked right now. Who would've predicted that both girls were/would turn into psychotic freaks ??? Just goes to show how deceiving looks can be.
Okay, so it started as a cutesy manga with your typical girl-likes-boy, girl-sets-up-boy-with-another-girl, girl-gets-kinda-jealous-of-the-two. I kinda didn't like Kotonoha for being with Makoto 'cuz, my defense, I'm a sucker for best friend dating best friend stuff. But, I looked at Makoto who seriously reminded of Manaka from Ichigo 100% ("I like her, but...I like her too. I shouldn't hurt both of them. I can't decide which one to pick.", blah, blah, blah) and at the latter part of the manga, I branded him as a bonafide playboy (just look at his face!! He looks like a kid!). At least he took the responsibility to tell Kotonoha that he was two-timing. And he got what he deserved at the end.
Well, in the end it was Sekai who let me down a lot. Oh man, did she turn out to be a BITCH and an unbalanced lunatic!!! That was so twisted of her to set up the guy with someone else in the first place and then tell him that she 'loves' him! In chapter 12, man...when I saw the "errand" she'd gone to run....I'll just say this to Makoto - Dude, I pity you so much for having a mentally unstable girlfriend now.
Finally, I felt really bad for Katonoha, having to bear the brunt of the mishaps of the other two characters...this is the most twisted ending I've ever seen in a manga. Totally made me go WTF after I shut the last page.
I checked back the genres this series belonged to and saw horror and tragedy after I'd read it...could've seen that earlier.
Anyway...if you have spare time read it for its not too long and is sort of entertaining....the beginning is. The end is well....crazy to say the least, and if I want to be diplomatic, i'd go for different. Not your usual stuff, but not too shabby either. I still say that if those girls had to go psycho, it should've been known or hinted at at first. But then again, how would it cover up for the disturbing factor?

Ok so this manga is about a love triangle and as most people know those can get a little messy and complicated. But this is just ridiculous! The main guy goes through the whole thing just doing whatever the hell he wants and only half heartedly protesting (at first) when Sekai starts putting the moves on him. He starts dating both girls (lucky SOB) and then suddenly he realizes oh this is wrong. The manga ends with both girls absolutely losing their minds over this guy who really has nothing special about him at all... Makoto is just so dang average is every single way it's actually a little weird.

So a quick breakdown...
Pros: clean artwork, cute girls, plenty of kiss scenes, a very different type of ending from the norm, and mostly believable character interactions (till the end at least)

Cons: almost no depth to the characters, Makota seems like a good guy but turns out to be a playboy (hey in shoujo isn't it supposed to be the other way around?), nothing really bad happens to the two jerks of the story but the good girl(?) gets stabbed to death (WTF)

Pro/con: is a short enough read that you won't absolutely hate yourself for reading it once you see the ending

I had to give it a 5 rating..... not good... not bad.... it simply is

oh my god. It looked like a normal shounen romance story when I first saw it in onemanga... until the last two chapters. wtf?!

The main character kinda reminded me of what's-his-face from Ichigo 100%... except for the part where he goes at it with Sekai; that was total jerk material. I didn't even mind Kotonoha.

Sekai bothered me the most. She liked him since the beginning of the book, yet she doesn't confess to him. She sets him up with the girl. and then gets jealous of them. and then kills her. what the hell?! It was your fault they got together in the first place. Gaah. I just wasted half an hour of my life reading that shit.

The manga isn't really great, but its pretty good. If you're tired of the same old same old high school romance, this one does is markedly different. The main character isn't afraid to get to it, which is something you rarely see in this genre.

The anime is very different in a lot of ways that are for the better imo. Makoto and Sekai are totally beyond redemption. I didn't feel any sorrow for any of them. Makoto is a hardcore jerk for the majority of the show and only gets worse and worse until its like... if he was dating my little sister, I would have had to beat this guy's ass. He has almost no redeeming qualities about himself and he never shows remorse for his actions unless it means that he isn't getting any.

Sekai is a little better, but not by much. By the end of it, you'll probably dislike both of them as characters, but it is an enjoyable show.

Well i have to say Ive seen the Anime and I decided after reading peoples comments that it was a bit different so i gave it a go... its still definately a tragic story and i have to say that it started off so good, it was really only the ending that sucked and even then id have to say i enjoyed it its just that i think they could of done a lot more with it ... granted its based off a H game but still it had such good potential.

i dont kno whow to create spoiler alerts so ill try not to spoil, but after that incident with the nechlace it was obvious she was a crazy chick and he should go the other, but hey i think he should of gone the other in the first place.

this version of the story shows a better light on makoto and in the end i think he was more of a victim than the girls this time round, as they are crazy ... crazy ...

I can only give this a 8 as i enjoyed it but i just think there should of been more and that the ending could of been better.

It started out okay, maybe a little typical, and seemed to be a fun read. But the infamous ending was the worst and that's why I can't give it a good rating at all. It starts out even cutesy but later everyone goes psycho. The genres are misleading, and the ending, although the series itself is not horror, is freaky. Perhaps one of the biggest and craziest twists I've read, especially considering how innocent the series started out. What kind of twisted series has everyone die at the end except the one who caused all the problems? I nominate it for the best WTF ending in manga history!

Manga or anime, those girls need help. Though in the anime I can understand Sekai's side.
I enjoyed this a good bit, just wish it was longer. Maybe other story arcs could be introduced too. Too bad. Art was anything too grand but all in all I think it fit the story.

I don't think Sekai is nice at all. It doesn't matter if she really loves him, you shouldn't be messing with a friend's boyfriend the first place, and do not get me started with the whole matchmaking thing. It's HER fault that they are together, and she ends up killing Kotonoha for it?

I just watched the anime, and I must say that it's completely different. XxSakura-HimexX, Sekai didn't get pregnant, she lied about it to get Makoto away from Kotonoha. I guess she was the "mastermind" behind all those because she wanted to be with Makoto so badly, that she hooked him up with Kotonoha, so she can be with him. That's why you see her kissed him, and it was revealed in the end of the anime that it was true, because Kotonoha found it out all herself.

[Edit by mod]: Possible spoiler?
