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

Read many romance stuff so going into this wasn't new. Begins with telling of the two main characters childhood. However as the story progresses on how the main female lead learns whats to happen to her friend, she becomes sadden and makes the resolve to be with him for all his life and hopes what she learned doesn't happen. While it does sound like any other shojo manga, the story engrosses you in feeling the main males lead and his struggles to gain his own happiness or give it up for the happiness of another. The main female lead struggles to fight for her happiness 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?

Mayu met Takuma for the first time in the hospital. Her dad was doctor there and she was always playing read more
