Synopsis

A follow-up to a heavy response to the original 2009 one shot by the same title, GE: Good Ending follows the main character Utsumi's interactions with Kurokawa Yuki, a member of the school tennis team, in order for Utsumi to confess his feelings to the captain of the tennis team. It is implied that the title of the manga is derived from the "good endings" that are achieved in harem visual novels. Although the story was once concluded in the one shot version, the full version includes identical characters and settings.

Good Ending is a shounen with romance as the main thing, and a bit of tennis. It's difficult to compare it with another shounen romances, because is pretty unique.
It has a wonderful art, and a good pace.

Utsumi, the main character, although has problems with love, wants to change, and little by little he does so. He is not perverted (only a bit in his imagination), is kind, and doesnt give up easily.
There are two main girls: Yuki, a serious, calm and intelligent, she helps Utsumi to confess, and Shou, cheerful and hiperactive she is the captain of the tennis club, and the crush of read more

The first romance anime I ever watched was "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien" (Rumbling Hearts); and since then no other romance has just quite satisfied me. Whether the characters were too shallow, the plot was too cliche, or any other wide variety of faults, I was always disappointed- until now.

For me, being able to relate to the characters is one of the most important parts of a manga/anime. If I can't relate, I won't even try to finish the manga/anime. Some where down the road, someone decided that making the main character a helpless, worthless sack of shit was a good idea, and for some reason read more

Good Ending is a very unique shounen romance and it isn't for everyone. I would recommend this to shounen romance veterans, but tell newbies to read some of the "classics" before this one in order to get the most out of it. This may also be a good read for someone who doesn't like how typical shounen romances solve conflicts.

GE is a combination cliche shounen and realistic story. The characters and conflicts are pretty commonly seen in other manga, but the resolutions are actually realistic. Accidents and misunderstandings occur but the characters actually question those events instead of running away. They seek read more

One of the biggest weaknesses of japanese romances set in high school is that most of them don't feel like a high school. The (supposed) teenagers simply don't act like... well, teenagers. They act more like five years old who think that kissing results in babies. This annoyed me greatly, but, thankfully, not every japanese romance is like that. This is proven by Ge: Good Ending.

Beginning serialization is 2009 and ending in 2013, Ge: Good Ending was created, written and drawn by Kei Sasuga.

Its story doesn't seem very original, but if you get through the unassuming beginning, it gets better. Insanely better. It takes advantage read more

Love triangles? Check. Disappointments? Check. Plot twists? Check. If you liked one, chances are you will like the other.

Manga: Suzuka
A similar foundation is shared by these series. Firstly, both Good Ending and Suzuka are relatively dramatic in nature - one that is filled with surprises, hidden intentions, and broken hearts. Secondly, sport is associated as a backdrop in both series.

Manga: Hetakoi
Seemingly slice-of-life type of romance stories full of drama and comedy.

Manga: Ichigo 100%
Both these serialisations revolve around the romance-related experiences of the male protagonist. Expect to see a lot of misunderstandings, confusion, jealousy, and drama mixed in with some comedy and slice-of-life aesthetics.

Manga: Nozoki Ana
Basically, the ecchi version of GE. If you read one, you'll probably know what will happen in the other.

Manga: Koukou Debut
Starts off practically the same, except the genders are switched:
GE - the main character (guy) gets coaching from a girl to help with his love life
High School Debut - the main character (girl) gets coaching from a guy to help with her love life
