Type: 1 volume
Thoughts: I started reading this two or so years ago…I finished chapter 3, the finale, today. The website I was using never updated it…I won’t state any names. I was expecting it to be waaaay longer due to how “dark” and “grim” the atmosphere was. Usually, the more “serious” shoujo tend to be longer, at least eight chapters or more, but you can tell this one got cut short real bad. It was rushed beyond imagining and well, I guess it would have been better off if I hadn’t waited for it to be honest.
You should know your clichés by now so I won’t point out anything specific, but to be honest, this book didn’t sit real well with me. There was so much that could have been done with it. You felt helpless and dumb throughout the first two chapters and the payoff in chapter three was so…not worth it? I guess you could say the approach they took was so below lukewarm that it was a sad attempt at closing a story that obviously someone wanted to end. And I know it’s asking you to care for the characters, but there’s so little you know about them that you just can’t and the obvious ways they try to make you care makes it a painful approach and a slap in the face.
Yeah, not so great payoff. Not so great characters. Meh story.
The one shot at the end was kinda cute, but cliché through and through.
Conclusion: You CAN read it, but I won’t make you.
