Preliminary
Story (4) - The story is a prime example of what an unhealthy relationship looks like. It Sets itself up with some girl who goes out with a childhood friend who says he hated her for torturing him when they were younger. The story is then all about their relationship with the fact that the main girl is a track superstar effecting their relationship over time, but it's freaky as fuck and totally unrealistic okay. The story is primarily character driven so the main problem is with the characters and how they act rather than the actual plot itself, which is a relatively common shoujo plot.

Art (9) - For as fucked up the story is the art is wonderful. It's not anything to write home about in particular, but it suits the story so well and shows male arousal so well which you usually don't' see in shoujo. It's very beautiful, yet simple art.

Characters (3) - Oh god literally every single character is so fucked up I don't even know what to do. The main girl's only redeeming point is that she is a track genius, but she is so pathetic and dependent and obsessive over her boyfriend it's sickening. Every other word that comes out of her mouth is "megane-kun" which isn't even the guys actual name. Her best friend also has major problems as well, but i won't get into that. Now if you think the heroine is fucked up wait until you meet "megane-kun" this guy is a legit psychopath who goes out of his way to destroy his girlfriends life so she will only need him. It is so disturbing watching him manipulate her and everyone and her. The only mildly likable character is "megane's" rival, but even he has some weird shit going on.

Enjoyment (6) - I don't understand why I find this so enjoyable, honestly, this manga is like a train wreck i can't take my eyes off of. I hate every single character, yet I still read this and mildly enjoy it. Idek, man, idek.

Overall (5) - If you are looking for a messed up story about a psychopath and his needy girlfriend coupled with some really pretty art then this is the story for you. If you are looking for something mildly realistic and slightly relatable then this is not the story for you. This author for whatever reason really likes writing some weird ass kinda messed up stories, so if you want another one read S+M by this author.
