Maria Kawai transfers from St. Katria Girls' School to Touzuka Public High School, and her arrival sparks interest for two reasons: St. Katria has an excellent academic reputation compared to Touzuka, and Maria is incredibly cute! When her classmates speculate upon her transfer to their less-than-impressive school, she flatly informs them that she was expelled for violence against her former teacher. This is characteristic of Maria—despite her angelic appearance, she will tell the unadorned truth regardless of social niceties, and as such, people often compare her to a devil.

On her first day, Maria is introduced to Yuusuke Kanda and Shin Meguro, two unlikely friends. Yuusuke pretends to be cheerful and fun-loving, but in reality, he is uninterested in many things and people. In contrast, Shin acts cold and distant, but can secretly be quite caring.

Yuusuke proposes to Maria that she should put a "lovely spin" on the things she says to make her words sound less harsh, even if her message remains the same. Unfortunately, Maria cannot master this "lovely spin" when speaking, but people seem to be touched by her voice when she sings. Can singing help Maria convey that she is lonely, that she wants to be liked by others—and most of all—that she wants to be able to like herself?

I remember reading this awhile back, and seeing it's title once again was so nostalgic. This manga was heartbreaking. But I thoroughly enjoyed the emotions it put me through. One minute I was happy about how things were progressing, and before I knew it, I was crying. This manga brought me on a roller coaster of amazing, and sad emotions. And I would recommend this to someone who was looking for a sad romance. But if that's not your thing, or even if your not even looking for that type of story, please consider reading it. I feel in love with the characters and the ...

My problem with this manga is how much I expected from it and how it ended up to be a huge disappointment. I really enjoyed the first part of the manga (though there were some hard-to-believe situations, specially when it comes to the teacher's behaviour), but at some point it just started to make no sense. From now on there will me some mayor spoilers so pls stop reading if you don't want to see them. (The conclusion is free of spoilers.)

I think you can resume this story as "look, these people are going through difficult situations, look how they'll change and how they ...

This story really reminds me of Usagi Drop, just for the way that the ending butchers my enjoyment fo the entire series.

Without going into to much of spoiler territory, though this is about the last arcs, I won't mention character's names. However, by the end of the manga, the amount of rape apologists themes and excuses is very insulting and disheartening. I can't tell you how I felt in the last arcs, as it was like a punch to the gut and to the heart. It was like a betrayal. If you are a victim of sexual abuse I would skip this story, at least ...
