He seduces girls, gets them and then dumps them. He specializes in the one-night-stand. He has no interest in love or romance. Dating someone would be a pain. This terrible guy, Hanada Shintarou, is nevertheless, extremely popular. But then he meets a girl who might just be the one who can change him and his low opinion of women. The only problem is that she despises him!

I started reading this series many months ago. At the time only 39 chapters of the 41 were available. I revisited the series two days ago when a new chapter was released. I am now waiting in anticipation for the final chapter and the conclusion of the series.

I really enjoyed this manga. The main characters are cute together and I like how the plot progresses. It's a fairly quick read, and good enough that I simply had to reread the series after reading its newest chapter. I plan on rereading it again once the final chapter is out. It's that good! And that sweet read more

The first three-quarters of Kirai are pretty standard shoujo stuff, if perhaps a better-than-average version of it. And then things take an unexpected turn that make this a decidedly more original and mature, if somewhat harder to process, manga.

Strict girl meets playboy who mistrusts women, but has no problem sleeping with them. They end up step-siblings, so she sets out to correct his bad behavior. They slowly fall for each other. If you've read much shoujo or josei before, you've surely seen a variant of that plot line. Kirai is a particularly good example of it, although for the first read more

Manga: Anata wo Shinjiteru: Sabishii Kodomo-tachi
They are both from the same author so the art is identical and the atmosphere is very similar too. They are both mature stories and they both partly deal with family issues. However Kirai is much longer and complex while Anata wo Shinjiteru is oneshot story therefore is much more simple.

Manga: Mars
They are both are for a more mature shoujo audience and don't have the typical "I love him, he's so hot, I'm so dumb, please love me, haha I'm only good for comedic relief and am super thick skulled" heroines. Although they have different plots and characters are very different, they both give off the same feeling that the love the main characters have is not some flimsy love, but yes they are imperfect loves (especially in Kirai). Mars touches darker subjects, but Kirai touches, well, touchy subjects (like trust issues, moving forward in your life, etc.) but both are really good stories with complex  read more

Now, at first, they may seem totally different. And they are QUITE different. Except, well, what can I say but that they both give me a similar feeling, and that if you like one, you might like the other. YMMV. Enjoy ~
