and I thought shojou girls didn't have guts

So you're reading another shojou. The main girl is torn between her love interest and her friendship with another girl, who also loves the same guy. She's indecisive, she cries a lot, she stupidly lets her friend take him, and you hope she has an epiphany somewhere down the line. You can't read another page. You wish she would stalk her love interest, tie up him down, sex him up, and shove her bitch of a friend out a window and break her neck--OHSHIT, did I just read that? is this really happening? and it makes him realize his love for her? Some part of you is thinking, "this girl is batshit insane, this can't be right..." but deep down, you know that without her to balance out all the stupid impotent shojou protagonists of yesteryear, teachers would never get the forced blowjobs they deserve. Wait, what? Shh... it doesn't need to make sense. Just roll with it. You know how we do.You didn't even have to write that rape-apology letter, because he was fantasizing about your expert tongue for two years. Ah, who doesn't love happy endings. At least, we think this was a happy story. We are eagerly awaiting a reversed version of this, where the competing male love interest ties up the wimpy indecisive shojou girl and gives her the best lip service she's ever seen to make up her mind. You know what shojou, you're all right. You've come a long way, baby.

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.

great, except for the ending

First, I don't understand how someone can actually give a mark of 1 because of the art.
Seriously, look twice, THE ART IS GORGEOUS!
Maybe it's different from usually shoujo art, the characters are so skinny. They remind be of Arcana [the manhwa]. It's a really original combination between the original shoujoa art style and the manhwaka's art style. I personally love it!
Getting to the story, it's great till the ending that it's really unfitting.
The story is original, something new that starts out as a normal shoujo story, but ends up to me much more. First, please note that this story is marked as psychological as it's trying to define one's obsession for love.
We have Kako, our cute heroine that falls in love with her teacher. Of course she get's rejected at first and we all try to sympathize with her. The first chapter leaves you in a cliffhanger as we find out that her beloved teacher is kissing Yuri, Kaho's best friend. Anything pretty normal till now, till the second chapter appears that made me said wow. She doesn't run from the truth but try's to face it, her friend is a bitch [but in a way has the right to do so since she had Enjoe from the beginning]. Our desperate heroine follows the teacher to his home and actually violates him. Now you start to wonder which character is actually good here. Enjoe seems to be the only normal one since he is caught up between 2 crazy chicks.
But wait, then the last chapter make us understand that he has fallen for Kako, even thought he claimed he loved Yuri. Why? Because Kako was screaming for love while Yuri wasn't, since she already had it? In a way, from another perspective you get to see that the one who's actually stealing the teacher is Kaho, not Yuri. So in the end the teacher also has weird taste getting drowned by an possessive girl. Yuri was also possessive, maybe that's why he loved her, but Kaho is so much more XD.
Did I mention Kaho's lolita sister? She only appears once in the last chapter for fan-service, but she's awesome XD! This manga is filled with elements that normally you wouldn't combine and I love it because of that, full of diversity XD.
Now getting to the bad side, the ending.... It's too shoujo for such a non-shoujo manga.That type of love [with butterflies and flowers in the background] doesn't suit the 2 protagonists. I'm happy that they ended up together, but I would have wanted to see something more shocking scenes then a confession from the teacher with a plain kiss. Kako's confession was stunning, while forcing her feelings into him [*cough*, sucking his *cough*], but his confession was plain compered to her's.
Ending really unfitting. If you want to do something different do it from the beginning till the ending...
Still, it was something new so I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't recommend this to typical shoujo fans, just for those who want to try something out of the ordinary. ^-^
P.S.: again, the doll like art is great!

well i'm guessing most of the people who disliked this were more shoujo people
i personally have always found popular shoujo wayy to unrealistic and boring as well as predictable
this manga was very surprising and unique
dark and mysterious, and a bit of a phycological thriller and alot more josei than shoujo
although very intense and even messed up at some points i found it as a veryy interesting story and absolutely loved it
i dont recommend this for shoujo lovers, but if you're into a more phycological and josei kind of story this is perfect or you smile

i used to LOVE this, but then i reread it. The art is really...odd. The guys do not have eyebrows and the girls all looks like emotionless dolls. i guess its pretty if you like that sort of thing but the missing eyebrows are freaking me out...and also the author love drawing crying, dramatic looking faces and that really puts me off. But there are really no cliches here, so i guess this could be refreshing if that's your thing.

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.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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.

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.

I actually enjoyed this manga.
Art is very beautiful, and the character is unique.
I really didn't see the heroine go that desperate for a guy. It was always the guy who was chasing after the heroine desperate, and that made it cute. BUT, this manga was the opposite, actually quite dark and psychological one in fact, and that's what made it so unique and interesting for me. (:
It was a great shock for me when I read this. But it was the "good" kind of shock.
This manga, to the readers, is either you loved it or you hated it. And I guess I'm the 'loved it' person.
I don't understand why other people hate it so much that they gave so many 1s ! It's a fresh new change in shoujo manga, and the smut part wasn't even that bad. I mean, come on, you've seen worse in yaoi and other mangas with sex in them. Not trying to argue, but just sayin'.
SO, my point is, if you want a fresh new concept in shoujo with lots of jealousy, drama, and a little boldness in the heroine, I'd definitely recommend this to you. (:

PS : I hope there'd be more great mangas like this in the future!

I didn't like this manga very much. The art was kind of disturbing, although still kind of pretty. And the characters tended to be very creepy, in personality and apperance. I thought the teacher was just pure grade A asshole. he was really mean to Kako thoughout the manga, insulting her a lot, and being really mean and blunt to the point that she was desperate because of his un-want for her. He doesn't even change, until the end, and then its just feels more like wishful thinking, or playboy lust. Also, I felt like Kako wasn't really in love with him either. It felt more like a twisted form of caring and hate, and delusion of her teacher of when he was nice. I also suspect, it was his rejection towards her that set her off.
Anyway, I do give it an 7 because of the art, and some of the good moments in the manga, but I really wouldn't read this if I were you, unless you have time on your hands, and don't mind creepy insanity. (Not in the good way)

this was a pretty crazy manga, but i actually like it. i can't explain it but i really like it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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.
