i might be crazy for saying this but i didnt like it as much as i wouldve expected(since it had high ratings). sure, it got me interested to read on but after everything, i wasnt really satisfied. it may be that psychological manga isnt for me? or maybe the ending was too abrupt for me? idk. another problem that i had with this is its lack of consistency, both in the mood and the dialogues (i know that some dialogues were meant to contradict because of psychological issues but i just felt that some contradictions were forced along to way so that the author can fit it in their storyline. maybe it's just me). and while one or two tragedies might suffice, this manga is the epitome of tragedy overload. however, i applaud the author for making me feel fear. there were a lot of disturbing characters here. i dont regret reading this.

Really good! But really dark. There were things I loved, things I hated, but in the end it's a really character-driven plot and since I loved the characters, I stuck it through to the end. I thought the art (which is really gorgeous!) really matched the persona of the story - which was moody, if I had to give it a word. It gave a sense of wistfulness to every scene, which lent the story depth and a seriousness most shoujo manga tend to forego. A very interesting change-of-pace, if a bit chaotic for my liking - conflict everywhere, no breathing space for its protagonists. Just when they're getting happy, a bomb hits! That sort of thing. There wasn't a real plot flow to it, just a string of rather unfortunate events thats stockpiled its characters' misery. But don't get me wrong (lol) it's a really good read, just slightly depressive. Not something to read to elevate your mood, but a riveting story nonetheless.

I found this manga completely by accident when one of the scanlation team's used it as their recruitment page, and am so glad I did.
When I first read it I was glued, and even now when it's satisfying to re-read it even though I know what's going to happen. The reasons behind the character's actions and their behaviour, when revealed makes so much sense and explains everything you wondered about. The characters are deep, and although they take somewhat extremes of personalities in the case of Rei, it's what makes this manga. There's so much I love about this manga, I almost can't say anything at all, just that you should read this if you ever have the chance to.
Out of the many mangas that I have completed, only three got a ten from me, and this definately deserves it's place as one of them.

This is the greatest manga I'ved ever read! (period)

It's a classic, for me nothing can compare this. While reading it I felt a very strong emotion and now I'm having a hard time reading a new manga (sigh)

You could feel all the emotions of the they're real especially the drawing.
This is one of a kind and very special manga to me...

I'm glad I have a chance to express my feelings about this great manga.

If you read this don't stop part way. You have to finish it because then you understand everything. Why Kira is weak and why Rei is so brash. The characters become extremely well developed. In the beginning it is definitely typical shojo but as the series gets on it becomes so much better. It can be a little dramatic but it's not irritatingly unrealistic. I certainly recommend this manga for an older audience because even though it starts out innocent it gets a little... intense.

But all in all this is a great read.

The characters were great. Emotional, unpredictable, intense, and somewhat real feeling. Mars stirs up your emotions and really leaves an impact on you. Actually, it affected me so much it's almost embarrassing. ^^; It was definitely one of the most intriguing and unique mangas I have ever read. It really gives you a new perspective on things; some unexpectedly dark, others ridicously simple and cliché.

I will forever, unconditionally love this manga. No matter how many times I reread it, it never fails to captivate me. You will not be disappointed, READ IT. It is absolutely perfect in every possible way. ^_^

You wouldn't understand how great this manga is if you haven't read the whole thing.

Okay to be quite honest, I hated Mars at first. I only read the first volume and to me it was the typical 'bad boy falls in love with shy girl and changes' cliche type of manga. A year later I decided to reread Mars because of all the positive feedback it was getting. And boy am I glad I did.
Mars is now one of my favorites.

The characters are much deeper than they seem. They both have their flaws. Once you learn their backstories, every single action they've done makes sense. The characters are so well crafted at points that I believe they could be real people. Kira is weak, she's very weak, but everything she does makes sense. She's weak because this manga is realistic.

The only drawback for me was that the whole thing felt like a huge soap opera. A realistic soap opera though... If that makes sense. But lots of people like soap operas (me not being one of them).

In all, Mars is basically a slap of reality in your face. It has cliches, but it's so well done that they don't ruin the story.

slice of life style to me. Honestly it reminds me of Hana Yori Dango and i dunno....its very deep but at times i felt like it was so SERIOUS.If i wanted soap opera drama i would watch them not read manga. There are a bunch of sad story arcs and it just left me feeling depressed. Worth a read, but not a favorite of mine.
