Mizuho Suga believes that people can be categorized into particular groups, behaving true to form. Since she can predict how others will act, she feels that she understands them. While attending the funeral of a former classmate, Haruka Origichi, she finds it unfortunate that someone died at such a young age. But her impression of Origichi had been that she kept to herself and was unnoticeable, and as such, her life must also have been unremarkable.

After the funeral, Suga is approached by Origuchi's mother, who mistakenly assumes that the two girls were best friends. The elder Origuchi wants to know about an ex-boyfriend that her daughter stubbornly tried to keep secret only years ago; apparently, Origuchi aborted their child before she became ill. Suga agrees to investigate this mystery, gradually gaining the assistance of former upperclassman Takashi Yanai, class celebrity Madoka Setouchi, faithful tag-along Remi Nishida, and enigmatic playboy Hikaru Narumi.

Although Suga was not close with Origuchi when she was alive, she is strangely determined to know the other girl better after her death. She starts to piece together the events that happened in their second year of high school. As Suga seeks the truth from those suspected to be involved with Origuchi, she must learn how to open up to others and be more honest herself.

It is hard to write a review of Piece without any spoilers, because the plot is really outstanding (completely surpass the level of any shoujo comics that I've read) and the story is full of with twists and turns.
The main character, Suga Mizuho received the news that her former classmate, Origuchi Haruka passed away. Upon the request of Origuchi's mother, Mizuho starts an investigation to follow-up the life of Origuchi and to clarify the missing parts of her highschool years.
This investigation slowly turns into a journey. A journey where Mizuho has the chance to learn the real Origuchi, a shiny, kind hearted girl. But read more

I borrowed Piece at my local library thinking "Hey, this looks nice" and I was completely taken aback by it.

Story: Our main girl Suga Mizuho reunites with some high school classmates at the funeral of one of their very discrete classmates: Haruka Origuchi. No one really knew anything about her, and Origuchi's mom seems to believe that her daughter and Suga were friends in High School even though that was not the case.
She has a favor to ask, she would like to find Origuchi's boyfriend, because apprently Origuchi was pregnant but got an abortion in High School.
Reluctant at first, Suga and two other classmates agree read more

Okay so this is my first review I will keep it simple
Story 9- I really enjoyed the story, I didn't even know if it was gonna be a romance at first and was very confused. But the more I read, the more it was "Pieced" together. Very fitting name indeed. I like how it really goes through each character even if they are background characters, it gives it such flavor. A touch of romance and a lot of story. Something I don't get to often with shoujo.
I give it an eight because I love this look, but I also know that it's read more
