I suppose the art for this series really throws people off. They're missing out.

Every addition to the story just made Ian's life more and more miserable and heartbreaking... I mean that ending was so unfair for him. But he didn't complain... not even once about anything that happened to him.

"She's gone, Jim... she's gone." - Ian
After everything he's been through... just to get that ending... cruel.

Really, it's been so long since I've encountered a story that just crushes my heart. T^T

I re-read the first chapter after I finished, and I picked up so much more the second time around. The character dialogue and meaning behind the words... like when Jim told her not to touch Ian's blood, and Jim's presence at the washroom.

Edit: Went out and bought the book. The second I found out it was available I bought it. :D

Damn... this is just too sad :/ But I don't regret, it was an amazing choice.
Ian really had an impressive life... And then I'm here thinking, what if this story is actually true? :s

This must be the most depressing story I've ever read. For God's sake how come there were too many bad coincides? I don't understand now, how can one person be so unlucky? Don't get me wrong, I don't like campy happy endings. I prefer sad endings as long as it's realistic. But the storyline in this one was so fake. Sigh

Do tell me what exactly about the storyline do you find fake?

Things like what was told in 'Not Simple' definitely happen in the real world. Obviously it seems many are either very sheltered, innocent or naive of this fact.

So cruel and yet so beautiful. I'm kinda loving Ono Natsume's art style, too.

This was great man, i just happened to see this on amazon and the synopsis looked interesting so i picked it up, kind of depressing but i love how it tied up all the loose ends in such a short amount of time at the end.

9/10 will read again :)

read the prologue again after finishing the last chapter, and then it hit me hard ...This was really depressing to see.

A powerful story in just 1 volume
