    I haven't got very far and the actual romance has yet to really begin, but I'm already loving it almost as much as I did the drama (and I think you already know that's quite a lot ) If the romance is anywhere as good as in the drama, then this is going way up on my list of best romance manga for sure :3
    The romance is actually better because there are some things (very romantic btw) that sadly didn’t make it into the live-actions. Mmm...just out of curiosity, what chapter are you on atm?

    P.S. Out of the three versions, Meteor Garden (first season) is the one that is the most canon, so if you enjoyed watching that drama you’ll definitely love the manga.
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    @ M3J

    Wow! Amazing read! Thanks you explained it better then I would have imagined, and perhaps even better then I would have read myself.

    I agree, the thing is both Utsumi and Shou and Utsumi and Kurokawa make a nice couple for various reasons, like I said it all comes down to the story of course, which couple would be better considering everything that has happened in the story. For example the main thing we thought in the story at first was that Kurokawa would just help Utsumi but later well it turned out the mangaka would focus more on Kurokawas relationship with him.

    Haha, yeah well like I sad in this rant before it will be good either way as long as it is not Oonuma, it will be hard if the author trolls us with Oonuma and Utsumi being together. >.<"

    Well everyone is friends now with Utsumi, sort of, that was the goal of the mangaka, even though the way he makes friends with everybody is in a nice and honest way. The misunderstandings sometimes are just hilarious.

    Shopkeeper? I was talking about Utsumis friend, not baldy the other one. XD

    Yeah I read somewhere she interfered, once again thanks for that read it was really good.

    @ Destiny

    That would murder my Internet connection. >_>

    Glad to hear there are more good guys then I thought there were.

    Well if some horrible or tragic past is involved then it is understandable.

    As much as i am a fan of good villains, I may not like him because this anime is not some action anime and being a villain here means he is a bad person.

    Good.

    Um, Goo(Renji) x Good(Chihiro)

    It was a joke thing a good person gets together with a good person^^.

    Ooh. I'm not too sure what chapter I'm on since the scans don't seem to show it, but I've just finished volume 7 It's the part where everyone's on Doumyouji's island. The romance has certainly kicked in but at this point I'm not sure if I can say it's better than any of that in the live-action versions I've watched...

    I did watch Meteor Garden (though memory fails me as to whether I watched all of it or not) and liked it a lot! I personally preferred the Japanese version though~

    What about Kimi no Iru Machi?? I really like how down-to-earth the characters are. In fact, I would even say it's close to being one of the most realistic romance mangas out there.

    And it is more horrible and tragic than you think…especially of…one of the main girls in ef-melodies.

    Horrible, despicable, evil, loathsome and many other not very nice adjective is the way in which I would describe the villain of ef-melodies.

    or is it after that?

    Since I’m not sure what part you mean, I can’t compare it with the live-action versions…if it is after the incident between Makino and Rui then it is better than Meteor Garden and the others because it was a few moments that didn’t make it into the dramas.

    It terms of being the most faithful to the manga, I liked MG better. However, in terms of acting, music, and everything else, HYD was my fav.

    Thanks. Thought it'd be too long; certainly was for me. O_o

    I think the mangaka was using Utsumi's like for Shou as a way to get him closer to Kurokawa, and then use Shou liking her senpai as a way to really get Utsumi to be with Kurokawa. Either way, it's a good pairing for Utsumi. :P Kurokawa doesn't seem as clingy as Shou does, though.

    And I'll drop this manga. -.- She's seriously soooo annoying, I can't stand her. :\

    It is, and even awkward most of the time, like when Shou caught him and Eri in a closet. xD Sometimes it's sad as well like when Kurokawa caught him hugging Shou.

    The guy that has perverted thoughts and is Utsumi's friend is pretty epic. He also comes out with great advices and good observations!

    No problem.

    And let's hope she doesn't interfere again, or I'll be setting something on fire. <_< Probably a book I don't care about, but something will be ablazed with rage!

    The story is pretty ordinary, but the character development in the manga is great. I would say the author is a master at developing romantic relationships between characters. Go read it at MangaFox.

    Thank you for the info, Newkerzy! I’ll add it to my must-read manga list.

    Another great manga/anime romance is Honey and Clover. When we hear the word “romance”, the first thing it comes to our minds is “requited love”. But one of the things that make Honey and Clover a great romance series is that it focuses on unrequited love, showing us the good things and the hard/painful things about unrequited love. Throughout the series we accompany various characters while they live and go thru their unrequited loves, but in the end, and this is the part I really like, Honey and Clover showes us that there is a point/purpose in loving someone even if you’re not loved back,

    Because shojo series aren’t the only ones with good romance stories and romantic bits, there are some shounen series that are pretty good in the romance department. Like Bleach. ^_^

    Thank you so much for the link!! As long as Ichigo and Rukia are interacting, I’m more than satisfied. ^_^ And maybe it’s not a very romantic moment, but it does show, in some way, how deep the bond between Ichigo and Rukia is.

    Edit: I found it, here!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for all those links!! They helped me a lot with the symptoms of the IchiRuki withdrawal I have been suffering for the past few weeks.

    And…may I ask why you do like Ichiruki? What are the thing you look for in a manga/anime pairing? And what are your favorite romance manga/anime series?

    Ichigo and Rukia have a deep bond despite only spending such a short time together when they first met. Even though it is not canon, I think that it is a kind of love. It just feels natural to watch them interact and yes, Rukia can read ichigo's mind .

    Since I just finished the last episode a few minutes ago, I need to gather my thoughts because there's really so much that I like about ef.
    If I'm not wrong does ef stands for ever forever ? I'm not really sure but I thought that's a really nice name if it is.
    edit: I was wrong, it stands for euphoric field~

    Re: Romance in the Manga/Anime/Asian Drama World

    Reviving this thread with a new topic of conversation :

    I’m currently watching a new K-drama called “Secret Garden”, and one of the things that the male lead said caught my attention, he said:

    "If a man ever tells you he fell for you at first sight , punch him…its just another way of saying he wants to get you to bed and stop wasting time" - Kim Joo-won

    That phrase made me think about various things, one of them being love at first sight of course. Which leads me to this question, when regarding romance in manga/anime/Asian drama, do you like for love between two characters to happen as a result of their interactions? or are you a fan of love at first sight between two characters?

    As for me, I’m not very fond of two characters falling in love at first sight or because the story says so, I like it better when two characters gradually fall in love with each other as a result of their interactions, as a result of each one of them finding things about the other that they like, I like it better when pairings/couples are formed in that way.
