Great character development has created intriguing characters. The drawing/style of this series is beautiful and in particular I admire the fashion or costuming of the characters.
Overall thoroughly recommended :)
Don't get me wrong, this manga is not that bad but I felt it didn't rise to its full potential. Discovery about male main character came too sudden and it kinda rushed things from then on.
Even so, the idea was interesting, art was good and I enjoyed most of it. And, from what I can tell, there are hints that something bigger is going to happen. I'll wait for that...
At the begining of the second part I was lost and confused because there's a serious lapse of time and you aren't told what is going on until like five chapters later and when I finally figured out what happened I became pissed.
So over all first part good and I'm waiting for something to redeem the second part.
This is an odd one.
In terms of art and character design they are both very good. Every character is unique with no stereotypical characters to be seen. Even though the story could touch a highschool you don't find the usual highschool class setting used. There are no more characters than needed and each personality is thoroughly explored.
In terms of story the first two volumes are followed in the anime adaptation and tie very well together, easily an 8 or 9.
From there, there is some slow development that culminates in a tragedy, and the story telling gets more and more confusing. Characters start changing aspect, personality, age and so on and continuity is gone. By the end some things are kind of explained but the main plot of the original two volumes is kind of forgotten. It's a shame but I found myself more and more disheartening at how the story progressed.
I guess the base premise itself didn't open itself to a lot of options, and given it was told very fast in the first two volumes, the author just wasn't left with a lot to fill 5 extra volumes.
Still, well worth the short read, specially if you liked the anime adaptation. read more
After chapter 19...
(Spoiler) Mike got killed and then the next chapters???
I became so confused by the continuous irrelevant chapters that didn't explain a shit what happened to Ririchiyo. Seemed like she was in the future (?) or that the incident where (Spoiler) Mike died was just a dream?
It got so frustrating that I stopped reading at Chapter 22.
This COULD HAVE BEEN an awesome manga if it weren't for what happened after chapter 19. ;/
