I don′t know what to say in the first lines when writing a review;
Last Game is a very cute and simple manga;
Yanagi, who is the smartest kid in their class -- the best in tests, track and all in all activities in their class. But when some new student, Kujou, transferred in their class, Yanagi didn′t remain in his top place. She was replaced by Kujou , who is now the best in all activities, though she is not full of herself, unlike Yanagi. They were classmates since Elementary until highschool, and Yanagi seems to have feelings for Kujou, though he is not much aware himself. Yes, Yanagi likes Kujou, but Kujou doesn′t seem to be aware of things called “Love”.
Ten years had passed, they are still school mates even when they are in the University, Yanagi had a girlfriend, but her doesn′t seem like to get over with Kujou. Yanagi declared to Kujou to have their Last Game, that if he can make Kujou realize her feelings, he will put a ring in her ring firnger -- will Kujou realize her feelings for Yanagi ?
The story is cute and simple. Though the narration or story-telling is not much good. Because they leaped through a long time, 10 years in only 3 chapters. But, yes, the story is still hand-able, it isn′t boring nor cliche.
The art is Cute and not much like some manga who′se faces are squished. Seriously, there is a manga like that, though I don′t want to tell what it is. Last Game′s art is simple, but cute and pretty. It′s not like something that is hurried for being passed late.
The characters are great, and they don′t make me want to kill them, like some characters in Shoujo, Romance manga. Who are seriously meddling in some couples problems. Their personalities really suits they, what was it again ? Their faces, is accurate to their traits, for example, Kujou, she is not sociable, and rarely smiles, in short, she doesn′t have that much of an emotion.
All in all, Last Game is really great! You should try and read it. This isn′t cliche nor overrated. read more

"Last Game" is a really simple and cute manga. Even your rivals can become your friends... or something more meaningful. The first chapter really caught my attention and now here I am excited for more. If you're into romance and cute mangas (like I am) this one is perfect.
The story is really good. You don't have to think too much and the plot is predictable. Yanagi, a rich boy who was used to be the best in everything in his childhood got surpassed by a girl. Now he wants to be better than her at least in one single thing. This is how they enter their last game, their last "competition".
I really love the art, it fits the manga type. You can understand what's happening because the draws are not confusing. The characters are well-drawn, they have good face expressions (you can see how they're feeling only by looking at them) and their clothes are simple and pretty. The art out stands more when Kujou and Yanagi get romantic at each other, I think the authors put more effort in these pages.
The characters are great. The two main characters' personalities fit into each other. I really love Kujou. Although she's the usual shy and pretty girl we see a lot of times, she's certain about her feelings and doesn't act like an annoying girl with a childish attitude. I don't have much to say about Yanagi, he's a really cool guy and is really sweet towards Kujou. The other characters are good too, they have their own unique personalities and give more emotion to the story.
The manga is still ongoing but I'm really enjoying it. I always get excited when a new chapter comes out. Like I said, if you like cute romance mangas, this one is definitely for you. My heart is always melting while reading this.
I find this manga amazing. Maybe I wouldn't give this a 10/10 but a 9/10 if I wasn't completely obsessed with romantic stuff, but I am so... 10/10 (: read more

It started out exactly like Special A-ish. You got the rich boy who's good at everything, and the poor girl who's also good at everything+love. It totally screams SPECIAL A!!!!!
I kept reading. Even though it was similar to Special A, it wasn't as competitive as Special A. It sorta gave a warm happy feeling.
It's a good read. If you liked Special A then go on and read this.
The last game is a great read if you like happiness and love.

It takes that concept of Kimi ni Todoke of Kujou the main girl, being a shy girl who in this manga is (Sawako)who before idolized Yanagi (Kazehaya). But Kujou is dense about how she feels about Yanagi.
It takes parts of Maid Sama like Yanagi being rich like Usui, and a gentlemen, only caring about Kujou. Like Misaki, Kujou has a part-time job and puts family over everything else.
Last Game takes the concept of Speical A of how Hikari hates loosing to Kei, but in reverse. Yanagi hates how he loses to Kujou.
The only think that I don't like is how they're in college but they way they're drawn makes them look middle/high school. But overall I would recommend this. It's a very innocent love story of two oblivious people falling in love with each other. read more

Last Game is a GOOD cliche though. I love the transparency of Yanagi [to the reader] and the naiveness of Kujou. There's only 14 chapters up to date online though.I guess it's a good enough manga for me to be impatient when waiting for the next update.But it is still a relatively good manga. Art is simple and plot isn't sophisticated.

Last Game is pretty much my most favourite shoujo manga I have ever read. Compared to other 'typical' shoujo manga, this has a very interesting story.
One day, a girl called Kujou enters her new primary school class. She came from a sad background and 'poor'. There is a boy called Yanagi, has is the top of every class. Kujou is the typical dense girl, quiet but very smart. She beats Yanagi at everything, but Yanagi is used to being number 1 all the time so he declares Kujou as a rival.
10 years later, fate comes between the both of them. They meet again. Yanagi decided to play the final game with Kujou, to see who loses or wins.
The story is very exciting and it isn't too fast to cope or too slow that you want to die of boredom.
The art is very pretty as well and you can tell that the illustrator really put some effort and time into it.
The characters are very interesting, but the best thing is that each of them have a separate background and finding them out one by one.
I would rate it 100/10 but sadly I'm not allowed to. >.< It would be those types of manga when you start you can't stop until you finish it. I can't wait till the next update of Last Game comes out. read more

Well, most people are saying that this manga is like Special A, it sure gives that felling on the beginning because of the constant competition between both main characters. Still I don't know why but my felling is a little different, Last game is more lovely than Special A, there are some differences that for me make this more enjoyable (in therms of cute scenes) than Special A.
Last game story is quite straight forward, Boy loves Girl, Girl loves Boy but doesn't know and another Boy shows up to stir thins up a little bit, even so it's quite enjoyable to read, with her dumbness you can expect a lot of funny scenes were the boy is "rejected" and the Girl starts getting some feelings for him too.
I don't wanna spoil anymore for you, just read it you are sure to enjoy it, oh and the Art and Character development it quite good. Overall is a good manga to read, it cannot stand against all those big love mangas but it can make its point. read more

Actually, I'm curious about this manga because my otaku friends keeps on talking about this. That they love reading this. Something like that. Then~ It started last day that I read this manga. And it's quite like similar to the other manga's out there. But I do love Kujou's personality as well as Yanagi-senpai. :33
But.. I just want to say that every writer, mangaka or person is unique in their own personality as well as their talents. Soo, I think this is just similar to others but not like the idea that it was like copied. I do love the mangaka of this manga to make a good manga like this. ^_____^
Simple. Yet beautiful. Believe me. read more

But when you read it and give it a chance, it's amazing. It captures you with the very first page. At first you see the perspective of Yanagi, a prince like character who thinks highly of himself and is practically perfect. Then he meets Kujou, a girl who has average looks, not afraid to speak her mind, and manly in many ways, but she exceeds better than Yanagi, getting better scores. This of course as you say, pisses of Yanagi, who is angered how an ordinary girl like Kujou is better than him, making everything he does a game or competition with her. But as time passes by, Yanagi starts to develop feelings for her as he learns that she has a heart, tries her best and cares for others than herself, all with a beautiful smile. This story tells of Yanagi's goal making it the last game. Who will win?
The story by now may seem like any ordinary manga, Yanagi and Kujou will (maybe) eventually realize their true feelings, or maybe a love triange will apear (?!). But the story is brilliant with it's pure setting, it adventures into a story with not the typical story but making it into an adventure for Yanagi and the red string of fate. The story is a colision of comedy, romance, and "doki doki" moments giving it a score of 9 for story.
The art is cute. Of course it's not the best, but it's cute and unique in it's own way, enough to spot which guys are hot or which girls are cute (XD). I'd give it a 7.
Character, i think this is best. Sure you'd find characters like Yanagi, but what makes him unique is that the mangaka makes him seem like any ordinary pure boy falling in love for the first time. I love seeing his innocence and pretty childish personality making it hilarious and cute. I LOVE kujou's personality. It's definatley not the typical girl personality! She's strong willed, and quite straight forward. Although she's smart and athletic, she's really dull when it comes to love and friendship. Her personality makes me laugh but also warms my heart. I also love Souma, he's good looking, cute but really selfish and usually a fake prince, although i think he may have a soft side. Giving character 9.
I really enjoy and LOVE this manga. I reccomend you read it if you wish to have laughs and heartracing moments. Overall 10 marks. I can't wait for more and this is truely and amazing manga. read more
