So it has to be said this story is an all too frequent example of a manga author who for reasons best known only to themselves decided to wreck their series with an incomprehensible and thoroughly unsatisfying ending. Sadly, one that goes well beyond a few bitter 'ship' fans that ultimately saw this series being widely deplored both domestically and overseas.
That distaste after reading is all the more bewildering given for most, the author delivers an outstanding story of thoughtful and entertaining character development - quite possibly some of the most interesting within this genre. There is a wide main cast with diverse and complex
personalities threaded through with an interesting enough plot that doesn't overshadow the characters. For this, the series scores well along with some cute art and genuinely funny story telling at times.
If you're reading, then by all means do carry on as the story is still enjoyably in the most. Just steel yourself for a disappointing end that will make you question the point of 100+ chapters and some frustrating angst in contemplating what the author was thinking when he decided to wrap things up as he did.
That said, there is a small saving grace in the epilogue released post completion. Something done almost to satiate fans and one wonders given it's only a few pages if it was really only done in a vain effort to ensure fans woldn't completely abandon the authors future works.
