This manga is one of my absolute favorites. When I was younger it was one of the first few manga's that I had read and I had only bought the volumes up to about the 11th volume. So I had forgot about its darker side and always loved its comedy and insightfulness. But when I finally got to finish the whole series, it amazed me on a completely new level. Not just because I loved the characters and the story,but because Tsuda Masami made me feel so in tune with the characters that I felt the pain and the loneliness along with them. My heart actually tenses with anxiety even when I know what is to happen next. Its so real to me, and so colourful, or vibrant I should say.
So, really what I mean to convey is that this is worth reading. It had so much more meaning than a typical shoujo manga and yet is full of comedy and lightheartedness too. The character growth is phenomenal. And its just beautiful all around. Sigh, I would loved to meet this manga-ka so much. She's awesome.
