Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu (I’ll Give You My First Love) is a refreshing Shoujo, Romance, Drama, Slice of Life about the promised love that may not be fulfilled. A bittersweet tale that will likely end in heartache. If only it wasn't so melodramatic about everything...

Well here's an interesting manga that follows the story of two childhood friends; Takuma & Mayu who’ve known each other since they were 8 yrs old. They are close. So close in fact that they want to remain together forever, but Takuma may not be able to keep that promise, due to his heart condition. Knowing that, it read more

“There is a time limit on my life..”

Love, Laughter, sadness, tragedy….life.

I don’t read sad…anything. I prefer fluffy and funny (I’m a sap). But I had to read this one but I didn’t want read all the volumes and to be disappointed. So I did what any person in my shoes would do, I watched the movie first. Wow, that didn’t go as I planned at all. Further research proved that both end differently and having already gotten hit by one train, what was one more?

this is the most cry-making manga i ever read.
the romance in it, and the sadness, will make anyone weep in tears.
it has pure love in it, and the sad sweetnest of never being completley able to be happy.
but don't think that it's just some super-sad manga - it also has parts that will make you smile like there is no bad in the world.
this manga reflects so many emotions in it, that i'm sure anyone that will read it will fall in love with it.
