Ahh I read this after reading the reviews about how awesome this manga was and honestly it seriously is a freaking awesome manga.

The storyline starts off with a girl Sarasa living in the shadow of her twin brother who is the "chosen one." Shit goes down and eventually Sarasa lives out her tale. The pretense of the storyline is definitely unique but nothing too out of the ordinary. It takes place in historical times with emperors and kings and all that jazz. (Reminds me of Akatsuki no Yona but less shoujo-y) The only big miss for me is that the author includes so many read more

Jesus let me say right off the bat this manga is in my top 5 which is pretty insane cause I'm really picky with mangas. PS If you're coming here after reading Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki kun, you're in for something so similar but so different (but in a good way!)

Just as Gekkan Shoujo is very comedy based it's very present here! Let me tell you I seriously can't remember any other manga where I've actually laughed out loud so many times. This is seriously freaking hilarious. If you especially love the comedic style of GSNK then you'll love this one (considering it's from the read more

Let me start off by saying that this is a very light hearted manga! I enjoyed it because it was a very chill read. This would be good to read after reading some intense manga for recuperation haha.

The plot overall is a typical shojo plot. Theres a girl and she falls in love etc etc but it doesn't drag like a regular shojo manga normally does, which was extremely refreshing; hence why I said it's a very chill read. The story line progresses pretty smoothly and it was cute overall. The manga doesn't really have a lot of depth and therefore goes by quickly. read more

I compare this one with the "1st season" of subaru and honestly I feel like nothing really has changed? There definitely has been character development and the artwork seriously got better imo but the plot kinda remains the same. Subaru is already this genius dancer and she's trying to improve herself in different areas. She always pulls through somehow and I can't shake off the feeling that her life is too good to be true. I feel like it's all just gonna come crashing down but who knows. I can't find any english scanlations after chapter 72 even though the mangas finished!! Ugh the struggles. read more

Subaru (Manga) add (All reviews)
Let me just start this review right off the bat with the fact that in the first 10 minutes of me reading this manga I was literally in tears sobbing. Now idk if that's cause i'm just an emotional wreck but I think thats still amazing regardless. And I'm seriously not exaggerating when I say I was sobbing.

I only got into this after seeing it under suggestions after finishing Glass Mask, and there are definitely similarities. But this manga, unlike Glass Mask, is intense and in a sense really morbid. I would definitely recommend this only for the mature readers. If you're read more

Ok so after much contemplation on whether or not I should read this, I gave it a shot. Honestly my first impression was "holy crap this manga is over 50 years old and its still ongoing! And dam this art style is old and not really my cup of tea." Despite that I swallowed my doubts and read on.

This manga is actually really captivating. The storyline keeps you on edge and it didn't take me long for me to get over the fact that I thought the characters were ugly. If you enjoyed skip beat, this is a more serious version. Skip beat is read more

I've just finished the series after binge reading it from chapter 1 and this is my raw unbiased review. (PS there might be some stuff I say that you might consider a spoiler so read at your own discretion. I never blatantly spoil anything but I hint at stuff so yeah)

The plot is honestly meh.. Like it was enough to keep my attention and allow me to have me finishing the story without stopping but that's only because I was expecting something. I thought there would be more but there wasnt (?) Ugh idk I kinda feel unsatisfied even though it technically had a read more

Haha honestly I give this manga a 10/10. I've never been so obsessed with a manga before. The artwork is beautiful in my opinion and the story line is attractive and interesting. Seriously one of my top 3. The romance is great as well. It's not overbearing but it's there enough for it to be part of the story. I seriously love this manga. I'm always smiling stupidly at cute scenes and have even cried because the story got to me. I've re-read this several times as well and enjoyed it every time!

The characters are also great all in their own aspects and I've read more

This manga was absolutely amazing. I've always been hesitant to read this and I'm ultimately grateful to myself that I gave it a shot. I don't think I've ever cried this much while reading a manga. I literally broke out into sobs and had to muffle myself because I was reading this at like 1 AM.

The story is very interesting and the art was outstanding. The way the mangaka played everything out fit together like a puzzle piece. I enjoyed the fact that it jumped from present to future in a methodical way. I honestly would recommend this to everyone. This is something everyone read more

Okay so I personally feel like this manga was not as good as it could've been. The characters each were pretty deep but I feel like they weren't explored into enough, especially the main character male. Honestly this is pretty refreshing compared to all the typical romance mangas but I felt very unsatisfied upon finishing the manga. Overall the art was beautiful but I feel that there should have been more development with the story and the characters as well.

(SPOILERS AHEAD!!) Ok so honestly the way that the manga started was very unsettling for me. She meets random people who want her to model read more
