This is a great shoujo manga that manages to stand out amongst all the typical highschool romance stories out there. There is a great emphasis on the characters being more somber than you normally see in the genre and often being truly depressed due to their own situations (Be warned suicide is brought up alot). Despite this the author manages to keep things hopeful and comedic, so if you're a fan of dark humor it accomplishes this very well. In general the story is one of people dealing with their own issues and being uplifting for one another, providing each other with a bit of
Mikoto is a very refreshing shoujo heroine that is both interesting and relatable at the same time. I thoroughly appreciated not having a heroine that's overly peppy and driven but instead being more down to earth. Her relationship with Jin is well established and the romance scenes with them feel very natural with some genuinely thought provoking dialogue.
Overall a great romance manga with an emphasis on dark humor while providing an uplifting atmosphere at the same time.
