It was as if the writer for this little oneshot took a huge pair of scissors and just snipped every sister-loves-brother tale out there. I know he's adopted, but gasp! I love him! How many times have you heard that tale? Yet other mangas seem to carry this idea out so much beter than Suki ever could, like De Capo, for instance. It's every forbidden relationship you've probably seen, so there's no sense in reading this unless your a major shoujo fan or if you're trying to fil your maga list to the brim. The ending wasn't even unexpected; it wasn't as if I expected the girl to fall to her death at the end. Actually, I wish she did fall to her death, because A) That would make for an interesting twist in this oh-so-copied plot, and B) With the main character's death, I wouldn't be reading this right now. What I also didn't understand was her random anger splats, in which she yells at her brother and runs into her room crying soon after. I can't tell if the writer is trying to convey a "Oh my, she loves him so much it hurts!", but it's not done very well, in any event.
You've got your average big eyed, girl and your average chick stealing, hot guy. Nothing you probably haven't seen before.
Again, the characters reek of copy and paste. The deepest thing the girl says is "I can't say I love you", which I have to admit, made me smile the first time I read it.
Then the phrase was crammed into multiple sentences over the course of the thing, and as Marlin said in Finding Nemo, "Good feeling's gone."
Worth the Read?: Shoujo fans will probably love this little oneshot. I suggest only reading to bump up your manga list, to see if I'm just a grumpy old coot who gave this manga a bad review because I could, or, of course, if you're a fan of this brother/sister repeated storyline.
