I didn't have the highest expectations when I started reading this manga, but I was already completely hooked after the first chapter. The characters are not some flat boring stereotypes, I found all of them interesting, even the ones I disliked. For the first 50 chapters or so, I thought this was one of them best mangas I ever read..
Unfortunately after that there was a few things that made me seriously pissed off. First I was slightly annoyed at how Maria's personality changes, without spoiling too much, I think she gets too caught up in her feelings and become less independent, which I found
a bit annoying.
But what really ruined it for me was something that happened around chapter 70, it made me so angry I went from reading the manga constantly, to ignoring it for weeks.. I did consider giving it a lower score, but up until that point I would have given this manga a 10..
I would still recommed it, because it was so great up until this point.
The art is beautiful and most importantly, the characters were easy to tell apart :P. I think in a lot of mangas the characters look exactly the same, this wasn't the case here.
I would say, try reading the first chapter, if this manga is for you, you will know after reading that one chapter. :)
there should be an option to put "is trying to read it but is very conflicted about it" status.
don't get me wrong. it's good. and the depth of the characters personalities really intrigues me to read more. but maybe it's because it's not the typical shoujo manga that i really get pissed about. i'm just so used to reading them that something like this is really "ehh" so to say.
but this is only my honest opinion. i haven't even caught up to manga to really have a full opinion on it. but i just feel the need to tell you that it may start to
piss you off, but you might just love it in the end.
so to say, i'm only on chapter 20.
forgive me for being to judging to soon into the manga. but i feel my that my feelings should be shared.
