First off, love the cover. Second, a little sad the series has ended. But you know what? I'm glad I got around to catching up with it. It was adorable, feels, cuteness, just want to give the main character a hug and cheer him on in wanting to be himself. Also, honestly, not a fan of the amnesia storyline. If done well, sure. But alas, uh no. And liked the ending. Give this series a read.
I think it's a beautiful story. I love the ending though I'm sad that it's over. Definitely worth buying.
I never actually bougth the book but judgeing from the cover I would say they get married unless the author just wanted to see them in a wedding scene, which I doubt highly. I have read others in the series and while I find the art cute and the chapters as a single story each cute I found Ryo starting to annoy me a little. i don't even really know why but she just did. Personally the book as a story in whole dragged a little. If you read each chapter as a single story then it's fine.
