Pride and Unrequited Love

This manga has lots of it.

If you want to read about a group of girls backstabbing each other to death and putting their "elite-ness" first and foremost, read this one.

It's quite interesting actually. A masterpiece on a certain level but I guess the way the story progresses might be a bit confusing. Honestly though, if you focus on the art per se and the lines rather than how the story went, you'll see its beauty. A good story for a Shoujo I must say. And different too.

And oh, you'll be noticing a lot of Shoujo Ai here and there. And drugs, and suicide, and love. Need I say more?

first anime, and now manga

Anime and manga are mostly similar, except some moments that were changed in TV series (for the better imho), and I think both are worth watching/reading. I would probably give the anime more points, for it was excellently done, and it was exciting to see all those heroes in motion. But manga is the original, i just can't give it less points). Besides it's old style of drawing is just superb and imaginative and kept me wondering, how this or that came to the artist's mind.
I disagree that only Kaoru and Rei were worthy. All the main characters were charismatic. I actually think, it is a story about passionate people. Nanako may be a crybaby and a little bit naive, which is natural for her age, but i wonder who would disagree that she also has a strong, kind and passionate heart ^^; And she is not a fool. After all, it was her letters.that made the story ^_~

The plot is sketchy and glued together by melodrama. Nobody but Karou is worth noting (and maybe the hero's best friend) for having spirit. They're all flat.

All the categories this is posted under are earned. 'Nuff said.

I ended up reading this instead of watching the anime, since there's a huge difference in length (3 volumes versus 39 episodes). I have no idea how the manga compares to the anime, but I certainly enjoyed reading Brother Dear Brother.

The art definitely isn't for everyone, though I've come to appreciate it's charm. The plot isn't for everyone either, since it's extremely dramatic and filled with tears, shoujo angst and sparkles. Years ago I would have hated this manga, but now I find it's excessiveness amusing. It's so insane that I can't help but love it.
The plot is interesting, and slowly reveals the small secrets scattered between the characters. Some of the themes, taken up in Brother Dear Brother, are pretty unusual for the shoujo genre.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For example cancer and drug abuse.

Some might say that the female lead is weak, but in my opinion she's just very normal. Not too strong and not too weak. I don't feel any particular like or dislike toward her.

One thing I realized while reading this was, that I didn't feel especially attached to any of the characters. Maybe this is one of it's flaws, but actually, I didn't have a problem with this. It felt interesting being a fly on the wall, watching these dramatic people tumble around in their intense emotions.
