Man, I just love this series more and more with each chapter. It's so simple and comedic but has a subtle depth that draws you into their lives and everyday things.. while I, like many others, would love to see a yuri ending between the two I'm honestly okay if it never develops that way, I enjoy it just the same.
I love this back story! It's so rare to have a longer running yuri series that actually has a really interesting and funny story with characters i'm genuinely interested in. If anything this is want to see more of, because sure one-shots are nice but.. sometimes you really just want more out of the characters, want to know more about them. uvu
At least for me I like how it wrapped up after the chaos and drama of the series, I'd almost like to see an afterward-afterward ~5 years later after they've settled into their lives or something, but the graduation scene was good enough.
I know I might be pressing my own views on the post-story but I feel like they must have probably talked things over after Jun finally snapped.. and after going home I'd hope. Neither really voiced their concerns about the other, Sayumi never explained why she was feeling so anxious and possessive, and Jun never told Sayumi that her neediness was causing her problems and a huge strain on their relationship. So, although the problem may have started with Sayumi (that we can tell from the given story) they both needed to put more forward instead of letting things go on to the breaking point. Talking can be a step forward if you put in the effort! I know that's not always the case, but in this scenario it would have been.
Well.. I guess I'm glad I found this series when I did, having never read it at all before I got to read it to the end!
It was certainly something. I have to say, although I of course love Yukari and Gaku being together, i did have a soft spot for Gaku and Alice's "relationship". Or at least the one that finally worked out in a way. Gaku loved and lost so many times, it is nice that she can't remember. This was such a strange little series but.. really touching too in a weird way.
It's easy to compare to Madoka's story in a way that Gaku and Homura were both obsessed to the point of insanity, but Gaku lucked out in her case, things worked out for her and although utterly confusing at times, i'm glad for the ending we got.
I'll definitely go on believing the final picture on the second to last page is canon too. uvu/ happy end.
I found this just by accident and was like 'well i haven't read this let's give it a whirl' and wow.. just wow.. there were a lot of points where I was pretty sure it was going to turn into a horror murder manga. I've never read a yandere series before that I can think of but damn this was a weird welcoming start to the genre. I'm usually somewhat ok with stalking in manga (within reason) but this was extreme insanity.
I guess(?) I liked the ending. It was at least alright but.. Akira should have worked harder trying to "fix" Koharu a little more. Well, maybe he did, it's a shame we didn't get to see more of their life with child.
I found myself cringing and muttering 'wtf' under my breath so many times during this though like whoa man.. whoa..
I really like this, yeah it's frustrating I want Yuzu and Mei to get together but I dunno, I don't mind it being dragged out. I enjoy the series a lot even though it's simple. I'd love more long yuri series like you see typical shoujo romances, sasameki koto was probably the best example of that i've seen.
Well at least my fear of Kashiwa ending up with Uozumi is calmed (for now, cause things don't seem set in stone in this series at all).. but I've also lost some faith in Kasumi so I'm heartbroken, I thought their relationship was a good one.
I gotta say, this is #1 right now on my list of 'manga i wish could be turned into anime'. I absolutely love it! The art is cute and really memorable, the characters are all really likable and quirky.. no down side!! I feel like the extras could fit in so well too. It's a sin /not/ to make this an anime really. I can hope anyway, sigh.
