Perhaps, I will read it. After Good Ending, an another "romance-manga" is on my reading-list
As a current KNIM reader, I would advise against it. There are sure better romantic mangas than this one
But is up to you
Just got done reading volume three and I must say that I rather like this story. It's definitely one of your more typical Shounen slice of life romance stories, but a good one nonetheless. I thought there was pretty good pacing, good characters, and great character development - more on this last part in the spoiler tags. However, like all stories like this, I can definitely see it reaching a repetitive point down the road. In the meantime, I'm definitely going to continue reading it.

It had some great progression in different arcs in between the repetitiveness. It is still hooking me up.

Yeah, i really enjoy reading Knim too. It get repetitive, but the author make some changes introducing new characters and bringing back the old ones later. Something really unexpected(at least to me) happens.
just think that his love relationships kind of develop too slowly
True that at one point it was really getting repetitive but I think that with the latest developpement things are getting more intersting... this manga is a roller coaster.. sometime its good sometime its bad...curently its good
Just caught up last night and a new chapter was released today.
To be perfectly honest, I'm not really that thrilled with Eba ( or her sister) being thrown back into the story. I sort got used to the story not being about her and really liked seeing Haruto and Asuka's relationship develop. I realize that there has to be some trials and tribulations thrown in to make it entertaining and at some point Eba has to be a focal point again, but filler stuff like Shiori and the love motel stuff were plenty good for me. I wish there was a little more of this sort of stuff before this started to happen. But I did read in bulk so I can completely understand if others don't share this viewpoint. Having to wait for new chapters is certainly going to stretch out the series and make the up and downs much more drastic.
This week chapter was really frustrating...Haruto really is not a good main character... he is really begining to get on my nerve... getting trap that easily by Rin.. anybody who's normal would have seen the trap miles away... anyway.. lets see how this goes
Recently, the chapters cut the thrill for me. I do not like the present girl of Haruto, instead I like Eba more even though she's being a ***** right now.
The first 90 chapters of the manga were the sweetest of all! But the current chapters seem to drop the intensity off.
i am kind of confused, i read the first few chapters of the manga, and then i watched the first few episoded .....
it seems that the anime is either picking up at some point in the manga , or its doing a big ass flashback or something
can someone shed some light on this?
OVAs jus cover some parts of the manga. It' more like a bonus.
and when i read the first few chapters of the anime, i was expecting these two episodes to be the "beginning" of the story, when it was a complete sequel type story with flashbacks
in other words i ruined the fact that he winds up with ebi (which was kind of obvious anyway) for myself
so the moral of the story is, do your homework before watching any anime, if you are actually interested in the manga's story,
if i had any idea it was only a two part OVA, i would have read the manga first, and then watched it
