Saikano is a must read for any shojo/romance fan. Or anyone, really. Somewhat mature (in content), but I recomend this to 13+ because of this. Its depressing, its heart-warming, its awesome.

This is hardly your average shoujo manga! It twists your emotions in a knot and won't let go. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next volume! Unfortunately, at the time I purchased my copy, volume 2 wasn't released yet! But YOU'RE the lucky one, potential buyer! You have 3 volumes readily accesable to you with no waiting like I was forced to endure! Don't even read the description on the back! It'll ruin part of the story! Don't ask questions, just go buy the first 3 volumes...

Saikano is a very heartfelt book, the story is very radical and unbelievable, yet it seems to make sense with the characters. The sweet drawings are great to look at and blend well with the storyline. The manga-ka has been able to add the element of time to the drawings, which makes the story very real, sad and lonely. This manga has to be read to be appreciated.

I know that there are some good mangas out there, but saikano takes the number 1, its is a stoty that combines every thing in one manga, if you loved evangelion, this one is way better,

This series is awesome! It has a huge touch of romance, but is a little bit sad, it makes your heart feel like shattering, but to the joy of happiness. I can't wait til volume 2 comes out. ^_^

Saikano has to be one of the most dramatic mangas that I have ever read. It was very emotiional, as seeing that she wanted to fall in love, but she was the ultimate milatary weapon. It is recomended for romance/shojo manga fans. Saikano is one of the very few must-read mangas out there today.
