Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5

Opinion: I find the graphics really mature and sketchy. A lot of people don’t like it but I think it’s original. I’ve seen way worse. -shrugs- I kinda like this style. It seems to match the tones of the story really well. Serious but youthful.

Storyline is so nice at the beginning. I honestly cried when the heroine fights with her boyfriend. Especially at the baseball stadium. The feelings are so raw and sad. They love each other but it’s like putting a square peg in a round hole. It just won’t work. So sad. Okay, I cried.

But then things take a turn for the worse. I would have given it a 5 but from volume 3 onward so much shit hits the fan to the point where you’re like: “… SERIOUSLY!?” It stops making sense. If you like melodrama you’ll love this, but a lot of you will toss your cookies from the over exposure.

Overall I still like it and if you enjoy drama you’ll love this. :)

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: None

  1. alot of people complain a bout her artwork but personally I love it, I dont really see anything wrong with her portions; Have you tried Honey by her?

  2. Yeah I actually really like it. >_< Especially the way guys are drawn! I haven't tried Honey! I'll check it out. (thanks for the recommendation!) The only other one of her series I've read was H.
