For starters, I actually think that this scenario is very likely to happen in real life, but this author has such an original way of telling it, I recommend this Manga for those of you who like tabooed love.

I feel that both the beginning and especially the ending were a little rushed. The introduction of characters were fine, but the character development happened too quickly. The ending had many gaps and much more could have been added to the story, but don't let that discourage you from reading it for yourself.

Story:It was a pretty generic shoujo manga story but if you like shoujo then you'll enjoy it. However, it was kind of a depressing story for me overall but that seemed to give it a sense of authenticity.

Art: Well everyone looked way to similar for my taste but otherwise the art was pretty great. Especially all the extra pages, they always had really intricate clothing (the art in the actual manga was not to complex).

Character: Main characters seem to have the usual shoujo boy and girl types. Characters not overly developed but you can get a sense of what a persons reaction would be ...

Story: The story was written wonderfully. The author made it really realistic; I could see it happening in real life, because it gave so much details and information about how the person felt and how the other felt.

Art: The author did a good job on the art too; the characters didn't look much the same and the scenery was beautiful. It had everything you could see in real life. ...
