I am not a big Manga reader because I am very picky as to what I like. MARS has been criticized as 'unoriginal', and I would have to agree. However, I don't think anything is actually that original, and that it is the way it is done that matters most, not whether it is brilliantly innovative or not. I'm sure this plot has been copied before: shy girl with self-esteem troubles and bad boy with a dark past falls for each other. But MARS is well-made, the dialogue isn't annoying, story is filled with philosophy, it makes you laugh and it makes you happy, and it is very cute. Sure, there isn't much to say about Kira and Rei's relationship: they're in love and that's that. That's what is enjoyable... Soryo does not have to insert unnecessary, petty drama into their relationship to shake things up, and you appreciate that she doesn't do that kind of thing to make their relationship shallow. And lastly, don't let the 'romance' label discourage you from reading this! It is mostly romance, but it is really well done. All in all, it is a wonderful manga. The artwork is unique (you may have to get used to it, but it is quality) and the translation is top-class. This is a classic.

Someone recommended the show. The show so far is really good. Volume 1 of the manga is also good and to got to say I can't wait to read more. Near the end I was thinking, well that was a little dramatic and creepy.

My favorite manga series by far! At first, I was a little skeptical about reading MARS, since upon first seeing the cover, I wasn't too fond of the art style. However, I soon fell in love with it. Besides, what's not to love about Rei? &hearts

This series is filled with both romance and suspence. It's a thrill ride for the readers and the pictures are amazing.

Rei and Kira are so cool together. They just fit beautifully like a jigsaw puzzle. This stuff is a no nonsense right to the point feel good romance. Now that is manga.

When my friend recommended for me to check this out from my local library, I was glad I did! I instantly fell in love with the series, and I'm almost done reading it! Now I'm wanting to collect the novels to constantly read over and over it's a series you just CAN'T put down!

This book got me off my feet and asking for more! Though I think they should have more chibi characters in it, there's nothing you wouldn't love about this manga series!

I first read this when my cousin let me borrow it. about a month later(when i had enough money) i bought #2-5 to read. this is a great series and i recommend it to anyone who likes romance and a bit of tradegy and comedy(yes, odd combination, but that is what makes it so interesting!)

This volume is by far one of my favorites out of the entire series, it's the teaser that gets you hooked and makes you want more and more. Who could resist an innocent highschool girl and a bad boy? Or is that really all there is to them?

This is possibly my favorite manga book of all time. I still have to read the rest of the series, but if it's anything like the first one, I'll never be able to stop.

I love this series, I have read all but the last one, and I am dying to get it. This manga series is remarkable, the characters are my age, and they go through similar things today, and I love that the 'sex' in the series is based on love. (yeah that does sound corny!)

Okay I started reading this during the star testing at school because my friend lended me this book. I didn't expect such a great thing to read. I haven't ever read magnas' and if this isn't something geniune, I don't know what is. The book is a good read and anyone who thinks otherwise are completely hard pressed to find something to compare it to. I hopefully will be getting the whole series soon and read them until the very end. I can't wait to finish the series!

It took me an hour last night to read this and it was wonderful. This is the classic tale of Bad Boy and Goog Girl intewertwined in their own romance. When you first read this, it seems as though Rei might just be your average popular boy. As you read on, though, you discover his softer side. The side reserved for Kira. This is a wonderful tale of love against all odds. By the end you'll be dying to go out and buy the next volume.

Mars is a great manga/romance novel that I reccomend to anyone 13+. It is one of my favorite series. Kira and Rei are two of many fantastic manga characters!

An absolutely beautiful and heart warming manga.... and I'm only about half way through it!! The story is dramatic and stunningly romantic, and the characters are so multi-dimensional it's unbelievable. Just when you think you know........ well, wouldn't want to ruin it for you. ^^

The first one has to be the BEST one out of all of the rest of the Mars series. The drawings in the book were really touching. I just can't wait to finish the series I really love this manga. The fact of a bad boy changing the life of a quiet artist girl really makes the manga WAY more interesting to read. I recommend this manga to anyone who hasn't read a manga before it really is the BEST manga in the world. A MUST READ.

I keep telling myself that I need to lay off the manga and anime because I need to concentrate on my school work and writing, but this was too good. I hate my sis, I haven't been able to buy the books for myself and she won't let me read them again. Yeah, these books caught my attention from when I first saw the ad in another manga (not quite sure which one).
