I stopped at Ch 6. It's a really depressing manga. Rape, Violence, Insanity.

    I feel like I've just watch the longest tragedy movie of my life. Really, this manga is more like a movie flow to me than a manga flow. It feels like watching a movie rather than reading a manga. At certain scene, I can almost hear the dialogue and background music playing in my head. Great read.

    WHAT THE FUCK? What a twisted story. I can't believe this manga came out from someone who wrote fushigi yugi! Anyways, still a good read.

    can someone please explain the end for me !!! is he dead .... or is it even the end?

    • letmesignup June 14, 2015 1:25 pm

      He is dead.. and the end of the story.. its really a sad ending for me T.T

    • Yue June 14, 2015 1:48 pm

      He's only dead if you think he is. This is one of those endings where you, as the reader, get to decide the what happened. It's an open ending free to any interpretation. Souma could have survive that day, or he died under the sakura tree; it's totally up to you.

      nope this is a tragedy manga ok he is DEAD end of discussion if y dont like the ending dont read tragedy manga then thats why they put the type so

    • can do it June 14, 2015 2:14 pm

      first of all, your answer is so rude, the genre tragedy doesn't mean that it has a sad ending, there's manga labeled as tragedy coz of the past or something like that. and secondly, it's an open ending , THE MANGAKA herself said that the ending depends on every reader.
      there's poeple who want to enjoy good manga but can't take the pain of a sad ending, what's the bad thing here? ha?

      I agree, not every genre speaks for the ending. It is what we make it out to be that determines how we will interpret it! :)

      I dont know if what i said upsets you but it wasnt my intintion !!! I just asked about the ending i thought i didnt understand so why are you being rude ! I did nothing wrong... Didnt i ? I didnt even say that it wasnt a good manga ! I really like it ... It seems real and moves you with every word .... It says that beauty and wealth isnt everything in this world

    This is my first time read this manga and I read it in one go.Maybe cuz it's full with sadness not to mention full of blood, I still confused 'bout something, and here they are:
    1.Is katou youya's father?
    2.Is Souma still alive?
    3.Did every servant slept with the young Souma back then?
    4.Why did Souma chased Masataka away?
    5.Could they be together again?

    I'm so sorry with these silly questions, but if someone kindly enough to answer these, you'll make mind light again, by the way it's 3am here and I'm dead curious.So sorry with my messed up grammars.

      I finished reading this manga a long time ago. But I just read the last chapter. So I don't have the answer to all of them, but here goes:

      1. Yes. Katou the Butler is the father of Youya.
      2. This manga had an open ending. So really its up to you to interpret the last moments of this manga. But personally I think he didnt die because he had just decided to live again and i would like to think that new will to live again would mean he made it.
      By the way, at the last page sensei did say that she left he ending unclear for us to interpret it.
      3. sorry i don't remember enough to answer that one.
      4. In a simple way Souma let go of Masataka because he loved him. In my opinion, I think it was because he feared that he would not be able to let him go the more he stayed with him. Masataka had his dream to be a teacher and do something in his life. But really Souma only had Masataka. Maybe in a sense it was that Souma wanted to let go of him before it got to the point that he might hurt Masataka again.
      5. This is like number 2. Its for you to decide. For me though, I feel that it was the last time they saw each other for that lifetime.

      Hope that helped. :)

    oh my god
    this manga, no, this story.. i really enjoyed it. they were mixed perfectly i think. my feeling just filled with a good sensations. it's the first time i felt so stunned to a love story.
    the ending might be unclear, but actually i felt relieved that finally the two of them were detached from their fears and those complicated problems.

    although so many tragedies are given as trial for them, and even maybe they will never be together again.. i still think that it's the best love story ever.

    I challenged myself to read it until the finish and finally I managed to do it. I almost gave up in chapter 5 , although filled with terrible problems . This manga eventually end up beautifully. oh now I'm relieved

  12. Ash May 15, 2015 8:25 pm

    I wish the manga would just stop when they both sort out everything..

    butttttttt, it's a good story

    One of the most Intense Mangas I've read..

  15. morimori April 11, 2015 11:03 am

    Just to tell u guys who feel sad by the ending, it seems u guys got it WRONG. In the extra page about the mangaka's interview, she said that she drew souma in that sakura tree because it's symbolize life force(masataka said so), so he will struggle to live from now on like that sakura after this both of them will continue to live forward. that's what the mangaka says, so c'mon be happy with me who become the fans of this GODLY MANGA

    It's 2 am here and I read it in one go. I lost counting of the aches that appeared in my chest while reading. I even cried. This is the first manga that can make me like a fish. I know it's a depressing story. However, I dun know why I am seeing this as a beautifully written one. I hope to see more.

  17. lala March 28, 2015 1:45 pm

    This story is soooooo sad!! I want some continuation where they will be together again, and have a happy endiiing. Ooooh!! . They show their love for each other when its too late, waah really good story sensei. so sad sakurako died
