Toujou Souko attends a Catholic high school for girls and spends most of her days ditching class and trying to hook up with guys. She's in a hurry to fall in love and often gets into trouble. Ueda-sensei is Souko's homeroom teacher and all the girls idolize him on campus. He thinks Souko's a good kid and is looking out for her best interests... Yet he never meant to encourage her to try and seduce him...
What begins as a passionate affair becomes a true and undying love... Ai Girl is an angsty love story loaded with melodrama. It should be noted that this series has adult themes and high smut content.
This story at first is pretty good. I kept turning the page wondering what going to happen next. It's very explicit so if your not into the whole show a lot of naughty things then don't read. But the ending everyone....... major cliff hanger like you would never believe...... i can't believe how horrible it is.
About a girl who does whatever she can in the time she wants. this story is a real page turner made me love it. I loved the storyline at first but the writer never progressed it. As the story continued in the beginning... I think I'm in love.. it's full of the things that make the perfect manga... Forbidden love, naughty scenes that show alot. but towards the end im sure you will receive a big surprise
I'd say the art is pretty good, doesn't take much to impress me as long as it's not horrible as if it was drawn in a car that was driving on a bumpy road. i love the naughty scenes, they were drawn out very nicely :P
Each character has their very own unique personalities. I liked them. If they weren't how they were in the story I'm sure it would not be so good at first. I liked him.
I reallllly enjoyed it at first. I really did. I was like "omg im in love with this." I couldn't get enough. But the end I was like... wait wtf this can't it? WHAT HAPPEN TO THE BEAUTIFUL STORY THAT I WAS IN LOVE WITH?! but i'm pretty sure you would enjoy it at first, and if you like the type of manga with real twisted endings, you might in fact love the whole thing all together. What can I say, I'm a sucker for sweet endings.
I wouldn't exactly recommend to watch this, but people should try to read different things even if they know it wont have the out come they would like. This manga is pretty good like i stated before until the twisted ending. if you think you might enjoy it go for it.

What would you do if you only had a year to live? Would you perhaps create a list of hundred things to do before you die? Maybe even just go out and get laid as much as you want, or just live like nothing has happened at all. If you was to ask me what would I do? I would live every minute of my life, the way I would like to do it and to make sure I have no regrets and love every second of it. Oh, and experience love. Never dated, I know I'm a loner.
So... anyways, this is what the female protagonist Toujou, Souko has been left with. A chronical heart disease that will only last her till the age of 17, and seems she is only 16, she only has a year left and that will be the end (apparently). Firstly she is with her boyfriend giving him a bj but nothing more. Her sensei (forgot their names -.-) said this "You should find someone you truly love" (well it was something like that anyways). Continuing on, she was thinking about what her sensei said to her, and thought it was best to break up with her old boyfriend. Now wouldn't it be lovely if the guy was just like "oh ok, no more awesome bj, oh wells off to find someone else" wouldn't it? By how the character looked to me, you know for a fact that something more is going to happen. Guess what it is?... If you said go in for some fun fun, rapey time, then you would be correct (who would have guessed, and if you didn't, then man you need pay attention in things you read). You would probably maybe be thinking this. Well she's a slut right? what's wrong with that, not like she's a virgin or anything. That's where you would be wrong! Actually, she is a virgin and is only willing to give it up to the person she truly loathes for. Moving back on the scenario, we're they succesful? Of course they wasn't! In fact the teacher just comes strolling in, said some cool line, kicked the douche bags ass on the floor, guy got up with a knife, and because he doesn't know how to use a knife and stab someone who is standing still, decided to just rip his shirt, exposing a tattoo. All of a sudden everyone got freaked out and left. Hey wait, Komirai, you must have left something out, right?! Nope that was pretty much it, yeah I know, I was like WTF?! as well. They don't even tell you the significance of the tattoo. All they said he was a teacher and fucked off! Anyways after that, she truly fell for her night a shining armor. Don't they always? So her relationship with her teacher begins.
Story (3/10) - Now, I didn't get to read it all to the very end, mainly due to the fact that on Mangafox, it's only up to Chapter 9 of Volume 3. But I did see someone post what the outcome is, but I have read enough to get the gist of it and do a review. Anyways, the story is meh, ok. I mean the contrast of the story is good, and really had potential in my eyes, but again it leaves no impression on me whatsoever. You might keep turning the page to see the outcome, but even that gets short lived because it's even done and resolved in the same chapter or in the next, there is was no suspense. The story had no deep connection, no deep feeling to any of the characters, there was no real hardship and no real hard to get the teacher part either. The only thing that goes for it is her condition, the story moves at such a compelling rate, that it's hard to keep up and leaves the reader confused at what he/she just saw or read. The teacher didn't even really give up much of a fight, you know add something to the whole drame. But, noooo! He just finds out what her secret is, and now I'm just going to do anything I can for her, sweet isn't he? Or is it just pity?
I mean there was no real challenge in their relationship and even their past was, meh like. No explanation on what was going on, it was jumping like they was time skipping as bad as they did in SAO or something. Jumped like 20 levels or something. Then they decide to pump it up a notch, it really wasn't needed at all! If they did the story correctly in the first place, like make us care for the characters, make us feel connected and make us understand what the characters were going through, ooohh nooo... fact is they decide to bring rape in, to mix it all up and confuse the fuck out of us. The fact that the main female protagonist mum was being fucked and raped constantly due to blackmail, and in the finale that somehow becomes a good thing in the end. Now, how the 'fuck' on gods earth does that work? Anyways, all the rape and blackmail did, was nothing at all! All it did was create tension between the reader who is reading it and the characters themselves. Although the male protagonist was awesome, strong and doesn't take no shit. But don't get me wrong, I was like "just get this rape shit over with", I even skipped pages just to ignore it all. I hate that shit, it was totally unnecessary, like I said! Now I did say you really don't feel anything for the characters and what happens to them and me skipping rape shit makes you think that, I do. No I don't care, I just hate rape and blackmail thinking that it does something to the story when it doesn't, I mean the guy just pops out of nowhere anyways. Now the ending I cant say, but on Mangafox it gets even worse and really ends up confusing you, on who's who, and whats even bloody going on. Enough! The story is alright, but I hate what they did to it. So, a 3 for being poorly executed.
Art (6/10) - The art redeems it a little, and is the best aspect of this whole Manga. But even that is just fair at the most. You didn't really take in the environment or admire any of the art. It was more like, "oh so that's whats going on, ok next page", or you just read the lines and turn a page. The art didn't make anything easier by explaining any of the situation. Even the feelings of the girl who is on her last legs of life, didn't appeal to me either. The art was dull, the art didn't give me a deep impact or understanding of what was happening and what they're surroundings were. The characters though I thought were alright, and nicely done, the female was pretty good looking too, ...well.. for banging I guess, but that's about it. Also, each section felt like those 100 pages you put together and flip through them quickly and it looks like a movie, I like to call them flip books, lol. It honestly felt like that, just *plop* in library, *plop* I know about your secret, *plop*, oh now they're both on the floor making love to each other, what happened to the inbetween? That can't of just been it right? Anyways, the art would be what was best for this Manga, nothing else was really all that good anyways.
Characters (4/10) - The characters were decent, they did the part they're were given and nothing more. None of the characters emotions or anything of a sort added to the story, or give you an impression. I mean, the characters are so forgettable, and no not just because they have a foreign name, it's because they left no impression on me whatsoever, I only just read this manga and I forgot the name the female protagonist fell in love with in the first place, and the only reason I know hers is because of MAL providing the name for me, thanks MAL! Saved me a bunch. The rest I couldn't be asked to look up, because I'm lazy.
The characters past didn't really give them anything more either, and we all know when we know of someones past it tends to deepen the characters depth or connection and possibly even understand exactly what the character is like and is. But in this instance, that would be wrong. It doesn't add anything to them at all. You still end up thinking, if he really is just doing this out of pity, and... he even said that he isn't kind of person. But then again he only really accepted her, when he learned the truth, see what I mean? You don't even really trust the characters and their actions. Always makes you wonder, but still nonetheless, you don't get the feel for the guy and the girl, well she's trash, dump, idiot and little selfish, but the selfish part I don't mind but being ignorant and ignoring other people around her is just being bitchy. She might have a life threatening disease but that doesn't mean everyone else is irrelevant and only thing that matters is, her! You damn bitch! Her mum became a slut in a matter of seconds, first you think it's because for the love of her child, but in the end she's just being a slut. Nothing more, nearly all the character are worthless apart from the male teacher, he is alright, I guess. *sighs*
Enjoyment (1/10) - There wasn't any, the only enjoyment was my expectations that it was going to be interesting and good to see how things turned out, but that was thrown right out the window before I could click the back button on my browser. But I guess you will still continue just to see how things turn out, but just because you do that, doesn't class it as enjoyment. It's like having to cut the grass, do you enjoy it? No you don't, but you still do it, don't you? Same thing, you wouldn't class that as enjoying something. Nothing more to be said.
Overall (4/10) - MAL classes this decent? Really? *sighs* Well I guess, it was alright it wasn't all bad and shit. But most of it was, so might of well have been. You will find yourself wanting to read more as you go along and you will just want to finish it, I think. I did just for the hell of adding another Manga to the completed list, haha. I really don't recommend this at all for any reader, and a definite no, no, if you hate woman getting raped, girls and woman getting blackmailed, hate seeing girls just giving their bodies up like it's a prize you can get at a fair, hate douche bags because they're just faggots in every way, oh and always dumb bitches who only think about themselves and what goes on around them. Other than that, then still don't read it, because it's just awful. Reason I gave it a 4 was because, I usually plus all of the Story to Enjoyment together in this case equals 14, then I divide 4 for the overall which equals 3.5 and seems I can't do that it is rounded up. Decent, tuh. -.-
That's all! I hope you enjoyed the review. If you have any awesome, romance manga's that haven't been animated or any amazing Ecchi (don't care about any plot, but would be nice) that hasn't been animated then I am looking for some good ones to read, I am looking myself. So if you have any suggestions then please drop a comment on my profile, thank you and goodbye and good day.read more
