Greatest Manga That I Have Ever Read   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Updating my comment since I finally caught up with it. At first, I thought it was going to go off-track and take a comedy route to the story (which would truthfully be just awful)... but it still kept up to pace with its storyline. This is a must read for anyone that doesn't mind shedding a tear or two (in my case, however, I don't think I can count how many times I cried... and now just thinking about this series makes my chest hurt, but I'm in love with this manga). This is just such a beautiful, sometimes heart-breaking, manga.

I can't wait for the next release. It's driving me nuts!

- - - - - - - -

For some reason I always feel that every manga I read is my favorite manga, but Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu has officially taken the spot. This has actually become my favorite manga, and surprisingly this series is the first of it's genre (Shoujo/Romance). I've always been a fan of Shounen/Seinen, but this manga has really shaped my views... for the better.

I seriously suggest you read this. The entire manga is so great that I can't put it in words. I feel that anything I can say about it would be an understatment. You'll hate the characters you thought you once loved, but only to fall in love with them once again. You feel their pains and sorrows, but you also feel their love. This is a feat that not many novels could even pull off.

Anyways, this is a MUST READ... even if you thought Seinen/Shounen (i.e. masculine manga) are the only things that appeal to you. That used to be me, but this series has changed my entire opinion on the Shoujo/Romance, for the better.

No matter who you are, read this manga! I promise that you won't regret it.

Also, Starry Heaven is doing an amazing job with this manga. Their quality is more than superb. The schedule, however, is on the slow side. But you have to understand that they have their own lives to live, and this project is one of about twenty others. Then again... who am I to complain? I haven't helped with the scanlation/editing process. Although I'm hoping to help out in the future in some shape or form (probably when I'm able to set up a paypal account), I have no right to talk when all I've done is express my gratitude.

Anyways, you NEED to read this manga. In truth, I would call it perfection. But that's just me...

It's amazing... The art is good, and I just love how the story's shown from the guy's perspective. Everything was so realistic. I loved how the story began when they were little, but didn't skip straight to the present day after a chapter or two. This manga showed the characters grow up and changed. Although I typically dislike the "let's make each other jealous" thing, I think it really worked for this manga. Before the guy learned that he was going to die before he reached 20, they were very honest about their feelings. It was really quite cool how Mayu declared to her entire class that she was going to marry Takuma. The characters in this manga are very elaborate. Mayu isn't one of those girls that are supposed to be strongheaded but aren't. She's supposed to be strongheaded, smart, stuck-up, and not a total ditz, and the author totally nailed it for her. Dammit, I hope the guy lives... I'm such a sucker for happy endings (Screw the bitter-sweet crap).

In response to cowslaves comment: Just to clarify, this manga is NOTHING like Haou Airen. In my opinion, Haou Airen was more of unrealistically screwing the girl (Yay, a f*** festival) than going through realistic problems in life. And while they're both tragic, the Boku no Hatsukoi is much sweeter.

uggh i cant stand it

Sometimes i just cant stand this manga. It gets really annoying. My god, its obvious they both like each other. takuma is a coward, "I dont wanna break her heart for going out with her." It sickens me. Both of them are trying to make each other jealous. How uncanny for the author to just have the ability to have takuma and mayu to see each other in the most awkward and misleading situations. I'm tired of this manga. It almost seems like a chore to read it chapter by chapter as it comes out.

I love this manga and a few chapters in I got hooked on this. It is seriously one of the best mangas I've ever read and will ever read. It is so touching at times that it makes me shed tears and you also got to love the humor. I have to say that it is a masterpiece and it is in a league of its own!

The releases are coming kinda slow and I can't wait for new releases cuz this manga is like soooooo brilliant>.<! Keep it coming scanulators!

Probably THE best manga I've ever read, Boku Kimi has a plot much deeper than your usual shojo I-love-you, you-love-me, kind of thing. 12 volumes may seem long, but once you get into it you'll wish for it to never end. Takuma and Mayu~ <3 amazing couple

i know everyone says it's really good, and i read a bit of it before i saw the ratings, but...if it's going to be as tragic as everyone says it is then i really don't want to read it. i'm not going to put myself through haou airen again.

This manga is so good but it's also very sad, so sad that I don't want to finish reading it. The story is unpredictable because you really don't know if the guy is going to die or not.

A manga with very well deserved fame, history is original, and lasts, but without a doubt what east manga makes so special, is the drawing of its author, that removed tears in one go to you but, the scenes say much more that what the words can get to say, a forced purchase.
