Half & Half is a love story that I can only imagine as tragic, yet beautiful. It has that classic Seo Kouji feel to it, that both brings in his delightfully intrinsic art style, and his fabulous characterization.

I started this manga on a whim, after completing another one of Seo Kouji's works (Kimi no Iru Machi) and found it to be both the shortest manga I have read in a long time, and the most heartbreaking. It is my new Shinichi Nagakawa and Yuuki Sanada are my new Romeo and Juliet.

If you are a hopeless romantic looking for something special; This is it!

Half & Half is another manga by the well-known mangaka, Seo, Kouji. Delightfuly short, emotional to the core coupled with an outrageously good premise and idea, this manga manages to steal the show from some of the other mangas that I have read recently.

Comprising of 13 chapters (the last one is set to come out in a month), Half & Half manages to delve into the themes of betrayal, love and the misfortunes that both of these themes create. Our two main characters are left to deal with these problems after both of them die, resulting in an inteference by god that allows both read more

While being a little short, this manga by Seo Kouji is a must read for any lover of romance.

Half & Half delights the reader with a good story that goes straight to the point, its art is simple, yet it manages to deliver sucessfully the whole range of emotions that the story needs. It could have been better, but it gets the work done.
The characters are really likeable, although, they may look cliche at the beginning, yet, we see them growing in the story until they reach their pinnacle of maturity.

In my opinion, it also has a few flaws. Maybe it lacked a little read more

Manga: Magi no Okurimono
Both are bittersweet romances that deal with love and death. However, Magi no Okurimono deals also with loss in a very mature fashion. If you were a fan of the bittersweet mood of Half & Half, you would also enjoy Magi no Okurimono. The length is comparable, and the art is just as fantastic as Seo Kouji's, if not more so.

Manga: Kimi no Iru Machi
Same author and creator Seo Kouji

- Boy and girl live together
- Similar art and atmosphere although Half & Half is more mature
- Female leads look similar and act in a familiar way

Manga: Ashita, Boku wa Shinu. Kimi wa Ikikaeru.
While Ashita, boku wa Shinu* is a light novel and half&half is a manga, both share similar setting in which the male and female protagonist share a body with the intervention of a mysterious power after one or both characters died at the prologue. Of course, during course of residing in the same shell, the couple gradually fall in love with each other. Bittersweet romance and just maybe tragic.

Manga: Shinigami Lovers
Both revolve about a couple who are tied to death. They're not accustomed to each other at first, and learn to love each other by the end of their lifespan.

The only difference is that, Shinigami Lovers's male protagonist is the shinigami and it is the female protagonist who has to die while Half & Half's male and female protagonists undergo a situation in which one of them must die by the end of their 7 days living on Earth.
