I was very fortunate that my boyfriend lives in Singapore, as this series only had the privilege of being translated into English there, and in Australia. Being in Canada, I was so sad to hear they hadn't translated it into English yet, but as stated above, I was happy.

I have waited and waited to read this volume for years now, ever since it was first mentioned. I loved it. It was very very good. I hold a great love for Fruits Basket, as it was the first manga series I ever had the pleasure of r

Gimana perasaanmu kalo saat malam ulang tahunmu, ada cowok tampan yang ngasih kamu hadiah berupa gaun merah muda yang indah? Padahal kamu sama sekali nggak kenal sama cowok itu.

Itu mungkin perasaan yang dialami Sakuya, ketika malam ulang tahunnya, ia dan saudaranya (Kanade) kedatangan seorang lelaki tampan yang memberik

I get a little crazy fan-girl about Natsuki Takaya....

This isn't as good as Fruits Basket, if that's what anyone was hoping (I know I was.. Shamefully) But it is still a capturing tale!

The artwork is beautiful, I adore her style, even down to the frame layouts. It's all so crisp and clean and easy to understand. That said, as with many of these that are translated, there is often a few errors in understanding, but these were few and didn't take anything away from the enjoyment.

The storyline is o

Can't help comparing it to Fruits Basket but it's an interesting beginning, although too introductory, so I have high hopes for the next volumes.
Francine Soleil
I really love the writing and the characters. But I think my favorite part is how much Saku loves the stars and the people around her.

Hmmm...bingung nih ama ceritanya...temanya belum jelas..tokoh utama karakternya mirip ama tokoh di fruit basket...seorang anak perempuan yg hidup dengan tegar dan ceria meski mempunyai masa lalu yg kelam.Dikelilingi oleh teman" yg menyayanginya karena sifat nya itu.Trus ketemu cowo misterius yg awalnya sangat ramah,tp belakangan malah bilang benci banget sama si cewek...Greget utk komik ini belum dapat sih..tp bolehlah dilanjutkan utk baca buku berikutnya..3 stars utk permulaan :-)
Januwarsi Niratisaya
Karakter2 dorky dan quirky ala Takaya selalu bisa membuatku tertarik. Langsung tanpa pertimbangan apa2. Ditambah kemampuan Takaya untuk menyuapkan twist dan plot langsung ke pikiran pembaca, tanpa permisi dan langsung mengakhirinya. Hanya saja...sedikit lame di bagian tokoh yang secara kebetulan sekolah di tempat yg sama. Tapi sementara ini coba tunggu dan baca lanjutannya saja.

Recommends it for: anyone who liked fruits basket
It's a cute story.

It seems that the whole deal with a girl with a boy name is used in this story too

knowing that sakuya is probably a boy name

and that yuuri and chihiro are girl names as well

the story is really touching too and i definitely recommend it
Rhea
Horrible english name and horrible start. It wasn't interesting at all and i think there was a lot of pressure for Takaya to deliver like in "Fruits Basket."

Not. Good. At. All.

I think I'll end up reading this only because Tohru and Kyo's kids are in it!
Carmen
Ya he terminado la melodia de las estrellas. Me ha gustado, aunque mis mangas preferidos son los de ikeda, tanto por el dibujo como por la historia, y aunque este me ha gustado, me ha parecido uno mas. Es bonito y agradable para pasar un rato.

i bought it in japanese so i was looking more at the storyline but it looks to be an awesome read once translated

I think it is impossible, literally impossible, for me to read something from Natsuki Takaya and not love it.
Lottie Eve
