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

    initially i thought souma lived bec he got strength and a will to survive after what masataka said to him, but they will never meet each other again. however after re-reading the last scene, souma might have died under that sakura tree. it's bec masataka thought to himself that they will definitely meet again under the sakura tree and the last scene showed souma bleeding there. maybe masataka returned to meet souma only to find out that he died there. technically, they still met each other under the sakura tree.

    this in an open ending so it really depends on how you interpret. altho i am still im denial (obviously we all want them to meet and live together happily), the second ending makes more sense to me.

    either way this is a fucking masterpiece that i will never read again bec it's so tragic and heartbreaking.

    This manga is masterpiece really is beautifully drawn and written, the character and the era at that time substantially written, everything is in exact part. I cry a bucket every time seeing Souma, what a sad character, beautiful yet very fragile and had a tragic life. Masataka is a very cool and perfect character, looks fragile outside yet has a strong will. Both character are easily love. I agree Watase Yuu must create another yaoi, though her non-yaoi mangas great also.

    As for the ending, it's beautiful but still sad and tragic, the open ending way I would like to have my own imagination of it, everything can be changed, no..no.. Souma and Masataka only have each other, Souma physically strong he won't die that easily, I believe soon after masataka finish his school they will met again someday...though I wish sensei is the one who continue with promising oneshots /extras in series.

    Is this the only yaoi that yuu watase has ever made??? Man, i wish that all she published were only yaoi!

    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.

  16. Leimaymay❤ June 30, 2015 8:20 am

    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.

    • Anonymous June 14, 2015 1:57 pm

      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

  19. Glow June 13, 2015 8:23 pm

    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. http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/sakura_gari/an/sakura-gari-chapter-9.html/90/
      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. :)

      4. I would say that it also may be because Souma was ready to go to the police to come clean about what he and the others had done in that family. That being the case, it would be fitting that he would want to spare Masataka of any involvement. Especially since he wasn't sure if he would even make it back from that.

    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.
