I gotta to say it's kind of interesting to read just how much outrage the bad-awful-absolutely-not-okay thing Kako did has generated in the same population that rarely if ever bats an eyelash when confronted with worse abuse by the male leads. Moreso when, as much as I personally hate the "(s)he wanted it all along" trope, I felt Kako's remorse and horror at her own actions was handled somehow better than in usual narratives with a "pushy" love interest.

Anyway. Maybe it's because I had the misfortune of coming across "Korosareru nara, Isso Sakura no Ki no Shita de" first and my expectations were not that high to begin with, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much better the author art got (it's GORGEOUS, art book G O R G E O U S). The transitions were also miles ahead of her previous works and, for once, the male characters looked SLIGHTLY less like creatures of the night waiting to eat you alive. So much improvement all around!

With that in mind, let's say the twisted nature of the three main characters didn't totally caught me by surprise. Sakurada-sama just CAN'T write healthy female friendships, huh? That girl was a sociopath. Kako totally lost it and did come terrible things, but I didn't get the impression she was so far gone. The one I can't quite decipher it's the professor himself- did he really love Kako (or Yuri, for that matter, since he was so easily manipulated) or was this about his ego being stroked? I really can't see that "happy" ending lasting more than a few months, both leads feelings seemed so shallow...

The hidden gem in this volume (the one it totally justifies purchasing it alone) it's "Beautiful World". It's cute, dark and unbelievably beautiful and I really wish it lasted longer. I wouldn't have minded a whole series about Bill/Vil.

I must confess I really love sakurada sensei so much, I love her work its so outstanding is beautiful and the story is so unique and this manga was a proof of it.

°°The first story: I liked it and I hated it UGH love sucks but this was too much.
The story is about an stupid girl who is in love with her professor but he doesnt feel the same, so she become nuts and even she loses her dignity. Thats not right.
She didnt get the fact that he was nice with everyone, and he even gives a damn for her.
°Lets move to the professor; I think he started to like her since drawing thing, but he didnt want to cheat his girlfriend, he was honest with her (not with himself but well...) but he was pretty rude too, he was playing with her knowing she had feelings for him, such a lovely man.
°okay and there's this sinister character behind all.. the BFF such a witch, from the start she was just playing with those two, acting like an innocent girl while she was just enjoying the drama from afar
I didnt like the end I really wished for saeko to forget about the teacher and start a new life, he make her suffer denying his feelings for her and treating her badly.

ps I was really expecting a murder but hell no didnt happen T.T

Second story my favorite one..

Refreshingly disturbing....

The stories contain some strange content that would gross people out in real life, but in a shoujo story, this actually is a rather refreshing element. I like it, and I believe I'm perfectly sane.

this was a pretty crazy manga, but i actually like it. i can't explain it but i really like it.

i guess the reason why i liked it is because she got the man she loved. i'm the type of person who likes happy endings. even though she went alittle crazy, but in the end she really got the man she loved.

I read the oneshot beautiful world by chance, and while it is not transcendent, it's interesting.
I found out then it was an extra at the end of another story and I gave it a try. But the main story is freaking weird, the characters are twisted and not in good way.

MC's friend was a b*tch but MC herself is a creepy stalker, and the teacher is a f*cking paedophile.

On the bright side, I think the art is interesting. It's not exactly to my liking (girls seem to wear too much make up for instance) but in no way ugly. It's detailed and refined.
And the oneshot at the end is OK.

I don't recall ever rating a manga 1 ! but this one deserves it so badly.
This manga sucks! surprisingly, it starts out pretty well and clichéd as expected of a shoujo manga. Then it becomes freakish, disturbing and totally psychotic.... and the turning point, in the end, was somewhat irrational, in my opinion.
It definitely was different from any shoujo manga I've read. too bad it wasn't a good one, though.

I didn't really read the first three chapters as it got bad comments about it, and i read spoilers of it- and yeah, it wasn't really good... but seriously speaking, chapter 5's plot was flowing really good and the friendship-romance as well.......

BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT ALICE TO DIE!! IT WAS GOING WELL AND WARM BUT IT JUST WENT DOWNHILL LATER ON!!! THEY REALLY DESERVED TO DIE- THEY TRULY DO, but the demon doesn't really deserve the ending... he was just yearning for wanting friends, and finally got one, and treasured and loved Alice deeply into his heart, but was unexpectedly shattered by those relatives of Alice's 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。 if only chp 5's story was like an otome game, i prefer reading the happy ending instead of the bad ending (/ _ ; )

My rating is 9 but it's ONLY for the oneshot

My worst read so far.

This was - with no doubt - the worst manga I have ever read. Perhaps it's the worst story I've ever come accross.

What shocks me the most are the people saying they enjoyed it because it was so 'realistic' and therefore unusual and good for a shoujo manga.
This story was anything but realistic.

The art is quite nice (despite the fact that the teachers eyebrows look like tadpols) but the story was just unrealistic and sick.

There was a scene though, which I found hilarious. The problem about it was that it wasn't meant to be funny and the only reason I considered it funny was the fact that it was so poorly written/drawn.

Basically this manga is about a girl who falls in love with her teacher. He rejects her because she is a student and because he is already engaged. Nothing too unusual up till now - we get that quite a lot in the shoujo genre, right?
Things just start getting weird and psycho-ish from there on;

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The girl finds out that the teacher partly lied to her; he IS engaged - but to a student. And this student is her best friend who actually hated her from the start and only befriended her to make sure that she doesn't get too close to the teacher. They start fantasizing about murdering each other (e.g. pushing out of the window etc) and then laughing like maniacs about what they did. The reader doesn't actually realize at first that they were just fantasizing. You're just confused about how and why the hell they just knocked someone out of the window. But after understanding what happened we see the main girl stalking her teacher home. Once they arive at his place she ambushes him with her umbrella - it really was quite hilarious because she hit him so hard that the umbrella was bent to a "u" form.
The teacher had been knocked out by that and by the time he woke up again she had tied him up and - well she pretty much raped him really.
Afterwards she says sorry and runs away. Then a couple of months later he comes to find her and tells her that after "she had touched him" he realized his feelings aaaand we get the very awkward illogical 'happy end'.

Of course - some things are just a matter of taste and there seem to be people who do like this. But yea, personaly, I thought it was completely awful.

Rating: 8.0  / 10.0's awesome! And oh, I'm talking about the Beautiful World one. As for the main story, I liked it too, it was prety different, a GOOD different for me because I'm a perv. Anyway, please read the oneshot, if you are put off with the main story reviews. In fact, the oneshot is like cleanser if you read the main with it- it's completely different to the main story, it's sweet, touching and T.T.

unlike most people, i love the art. i think it have surreal alienistic quality, with the characters looking like demented dolls. they can look real creepy and demonic sometimes, but still gorgeous.

i dont understand what littlekittygroans below me read, because the teacher really DO NOT put her down in anyway. i think he turn her down real gently, even though she act very weird. i like kako, but i want her to be full blown yandere, but alas, we get this half-ass obsession. though the thing she do in his house is quite interesting, i dont read much manga with rapist heroines. the love rival is very boring, she is too cliche.

i think this manga should only read for the art is you like that sort of look. the others -plot, characterization, dialogue etc, really below par.

for beautiful world, it is like a school kid story, very straightforward and expected 'twist'. really, a waste for such amazing art.
