One word that could sum up Kyou no Kira-kun for me is... bittersweet.

Story: 8/10

I don't think the story is very common but it's not original either. I mean when you say very common shoujo, for me it's:

"Unpopular girl will fall in love with the most popular guy in school. Many things will happen like girl confessing to boy but will get rejected but in the end they will end up together... but another guy will appear."

Something like that. Well Kyou no Kira-kun still has the same theme of "unpopular girl" and "popular boy" but there's a catch. The boy is sick and has only a read more

"Its a promise.. 365 days before the blink of my eyes, ill keep staring at you"

The premise is fairly common, with the presence of manga's such as koizora, the theme of tragedy seems to reel in to both genders appealing to the readers sympathy.

The story starts off with a girl named Nino who is a shy girl who has a funky parrot who she likes talking too, and of course the main protagonist who is told he will die in less than a year.

The characters are fairly normal for a shoujo manga, there is nothing special about them. Apart from the fact read more

Like a previous reviewer has said the premise of the story is pretty common. The male assumed love interest has some sort of disease and knows he's going to die.

Obviously death and disease being the main theme its still slightly depressing but in a more bittersweet way than a pessimistic way.

One of the nicest things about the manga was the way in which the main characters are characterized. The protagonist is read more

Cutest manga ever.

I feel like I wanna leave it at that but I wont.

Nino is a shy girl who befriends, or is befriended by, Kira who is told he's only been given 1 year to live. It's a story of he developing relationship between Nino and Kira and how the people around them interact and grow.

The art is stunning, Nino is like the cutest, sweetest person ever, Sensei her pet parrot is also an interesting addition making this an even more unique manga, Kira is a wild yet lonely boy with the nicest hair ever. And we're just seeing a new person being introduced called read more
