that was absoloutly beautiful, probably the most powerful and saddest manga im probably ever going to read, that was truly a pleasure to read, and yes like many before me, I couldn't help but cry, his words in that letter just tore at my heart! If possible im going to be buying this manga! I hope I can!

Will be looking for this man's work in the future! 9/10 (purely just because the ending literally killed me aha)

I finished this manga during class (yes, I'm a bad student) but this manga is so sad that my tear could not stop flowing out (imagine me being in my room, I'd flood my house) good that I have a cold today, I blame my cold for making me cry.

I really wish that he didn't die...I really wish he didn't.
This manga is short, but it is also one of the best I've read.

I came up this manga totally by accident but it was the greatest way how I could spent this 1,5 hour. Great pics, great plot, great message, unfortunately great ending, but I wish, as everyone, he wouldn't have died TT^TT

If only I could read it again without knowing the end!

Had to say I was a bit skeptical while reading the first chapters, with its rank in MAL and all, but damn. This ending, his letter... I've never cried this much while reading.

I literally cried a river. My mum was like 'WTF, your eyes are red and puffy. What happened?!' me: 'I was reading this manga and *explains to mum about the manga* and the ending was really sad.' mum: 'You cried? At a manga?' me: 'YOU HAVE NO SOUL!'.

This isn't the greatest manga ever by any means, but damn if it wasn't beautiful. Almost teared up in the last chapter.

This goes for me, too.
This is probably one of the mangas I will always remember.

This was so sad. Isn't that always the way? People become happy and overcome their pain, and then they don't get a very long time to live that.
I really love this manga, though.

Wow, what a brilliant conclusion. Almost had me break a tear. One of things I especially liked in the manga was that Sumomo Yumeka constructed every bit of it so precisely that every single word, every single drawing, didn't feel left out at all; every bit of it seemed important; had the manga been a little longer, I suspect it wouldn't have been this brilliant.

Great manga, it had a amazing story, best part was when yuu said to live and Please find a way, to be happier than anyone else.. There were some parts that were sad, mainly the part where they knew they loved each other, but fate in death separated them.

Behold of my awesomeness~

This is such a bittersweet manga. Really touching. Juri and Yuu's pasts were very saddening to find out, especially for Yuu. The last chapter was so sad though and I (as many of you) cried rivers. Probably one of the most touching manga I've read ever. A masterpiece in my honest opinon. I was supposed to be finishing off my holiday homework but spending an hour or so reading this manga was so worth it.

Amazing job to the author of the light novel and this manga. <3

I haven't read much manga at all, but wow. I don't think I'll ever read something this good ever again. This manga really makes me rethink my stance on the death penalty, being supportive of it. I had to stop several times, take my glasses off, and just bury my face into my hands in an attempt to stop my sobbing. I am so glad I read this, it is a true masterpiece. 10/10.

Impressive. That's all I need to say about this series. I prepared to read this series thinking that it was just an overrated manga that's ranked 2 on MAL, but now I know that definitely doesn't give this series justice.

I've never been able to cry while I'm reading something. Without music creating tension, I can't get my eyes to water into tears. However, this manga has brought me the closest to tears in my whole life. I felt the tension just by the words and the art. The characters made me want to fall into despair with them and cry in the corner.

10/10 for sure.

Damn this made me feel like a little bitch, such a damn sad ending. I was hoping for something more happy but damn. This made me rethink my stance on capital punishment and Jail in general. Such a strong and emotional story, that touched on many grim things like rape, suicide, prostitution, murder, and poverty. One of the best manga I've read.

Just awesome. It's been long since I cried so much reading a manga! The final is so well written and drawn. Of course I would have liked a happier final, I don't know how, but I didn't want him to die! :( Anyway, the story is just amazing, I truthfully recommend to anyone. She couldn't have done it better! The film is excellent, but the manga is awesome.

I can't wait to read the novel!! =)

10/10 with no doubt

Um, yeah, it was okay, but didn't really affect me emotionally at all.

This was actually my foray into the manga world. Maybe manga’s just not my cup of tea… I've never been into comics.

I didn’t really get attached to the characters, and whether that’s solely due to the medium or not, I don’t know. For example, I don’t understand the character of Juri at all, and why she’s so depressed. I mean, I get it, the rape, the mom, but… really, I find it all way too weak to justify the level of her depression, to justify the withdrawal and desire for such an extreme as suicide for someone as old as she is. Don’t understand the aunt either, and the mother wasn’t developed at all. To me, Yuu was the only good character.

It’s not that I’m emotionless; there’re plenty of anime that brought me to tears. It’s more that I can’t empathize with characters I don’t understand, or characters that aren't developed enough for me to form an attachment.

The story also felt way too short to me. I’d really like to see more development in the characters and in their relationship. And with such brevity, the plot didn’t really have time to break more than one dimension, a dimension that felt pretty contrived honestly.

I might have to agree with the above poster here. It was beautiful, but I definitely wasn't crying rivers. Maybe it's because I read Deep Love last night so this just didn't impact me as much. I couldn't feel much empathy for Juri I guess. 8/10

Hmm, I wasn't even close to crying. Guess I don't have a soul.

On a more serious note, it was really good, but I don't think it deserves the #2 spot.

Yes it really does. In these 8 chapters I grew pretty attached to the characters. They were really believable. The ending was bittersweet.

9/10 for this Manga.

Till the end I was hoping, that somehow, somehow Yuu would be saved.But the ending left room for no hopes. T.T

Pretty sad and thrilling ending with a strong finish. This manga definitely had that touch of romance mixed with psychological feeling to it, at least the way it was presented and how it tried to make readers feel the emotions and what was going on with the main characters' minds - Yuu and Juri.

I didn't cry though but this manga was brilliant. I will score this a 9/10 but considering a masterpiece. I will be re-reading this again likely.

This manga certainly did an amazing job of sending it's message. Also, the emotions that i felt just by reading every dialogue is just beautiful and tragic at the same time.

Definitely would recommend this manga to ANYONE.

uhh.. i cried a lot T_T last chapter was very emotional to me, by the time he realized that he actually want to live, it's already too late... He even didn't get the chance to celebrate his birthday T_____T but at least he got the most beautiful present from her, a chance to listen to her playing the piano... oh man, this is so sad :((

I'm glad that She decided to forgive her mother and live her life, thanks to him..
