All Miki Koishikawa wanted was an ordinary family and that's exactly what she had until her parents decided to move in with another couple (as in switching spouses!) and turned Miki's world upside down. Now she lives in a house with four parents and her totally cute stepbrother, Yuu. It's bad enough being brought into her parents' strange soap opera, but Miki will star in ...more

Soo...apparently Me of a Decade Ago really enjoyed annoying shoujos...which I don't remember that being the case...then again YA not being the juggernaut it is now, I didn't find a lot of these tropes as annoying since I only read the occasional "real" shoujo (I'll contend something like MARS leans more heavily in the josei category after the first couple of volumes since by that point Rei and Kira are trying to build a life and aren't interested in the petty games of HS relationships, but that' ...more
The tennis match was boring and I this volume in general wasn't like really about anything? Anyway the love triangle is not a failure up to now. I want to find out and see.

Things get interesting when Yuu has to partner with Ginta when Ginta's tennis partner gets a broken ankle. Since the two boys don't get along usually because of was interesting to see how team cameraderie cancels out trivial matters. Yuu and Ginta beat their opponent's and don't end up having to shave their heads. I am actually quite glad the author put that little bit in the back about how to understand Tennis. It helped clear up a lot of things from me since I was never good enough t ...more

4.5 stars (rounded up to a five). Some parts in this manga are quite predictable, at least for me, since I've read so much romance novels and manga before. However, it works really well in this manga, and the art, like in the first volume, is quite marvelous, too! I think I'm starting to have a crush on Ginta, but that's another topic. Plus, the characters are being developed beautifully, and the few predictable moments that I already mentioned are occasionally given some small twists to make it ...more
Another great chapter in the Marmalade series! The drama goes deeper, but I wish there was more about the ridiculous parents!

And the ending is fabulous! Excellent, yet sexy and dramatic cliffhanger!

can someone pls tell me how i can read this book "marmalade boy2"!! it's so annoying i can't seem to find anywhere to read it , my parents won't let me buy it, anyway where do they sell it!?:( pls if u have a copy i'd luv you to maybe send me a copy Marmalade Boy, Volume 2 by Wataru Yoshizumi i alos can't rate it !! plssssssssssssssssss :) thanks i'd b happy if u do !:D

I love this manga it's so cute. I've seen the show, but I wanna see how the manga is and so far it's the same as the show. Mikki does annoy me though 'cause she can be very dramatic and emotional. I thought guys got annoyed with that sort of thing. Ginta is too aggressive and needs to take it easy I'm not surprised Mikki wasn't scared off by him yet. Yuu is so funny and such a laid back character. He's my favorite. One of my favorite manga's.
If I wanted hot tennis action, I'd be reading Prince of Tennis. And what is up with the girls not playing exhibition games and running an oden stand instead?

Arimi is a manipulative little thing, and Ginta is still stupid.

And I was kind of surprised to find out that Yoshizumi Wataru is friends with Yazawa Ai (Nana, Paradise Kiss). Their styles are so different...
it makes me wish that i could play tennis, or at least understand it better. as miki and yuu's relationship grow, ginta feels threaten that he is on the brink of loosing miki forever. but can her heart still be swayed to love him again?

the character development in this book is spectacular. it really helps move the plot along swimmingly.
This series was fun and flirty and so full of drama I loved it. The characters were amazing and I felt that I could relate to a lot of the issue that were going on concerning romantic relationships. I loved how it ended up turning out and I was on the edge of my seat reading. This I absolutely could not put down!
En este tomo aparecen Arimi, Yû, Cinta y Miki como principales protagonistas con sus tejemanejes para conseguir cada uno a la persona que ama. sin duda, el golpe de efecto lo da Meiko al final del todo cuando se descubre con quien estaba saliendo....
Aaaaand the soap opera continues with a heated tennis match, plus antics between Arimi and Ginta. And poor Miki gets her emotions jerked all over by her insane (but well-meaning) parents.

Did I mention I love this story?

This manga has a pretty out-there premise, but managed to pull it off. Parts of it are very emotional and I think the story is crafted well.
Shannon (Twilight Sleep)
This was one of my first ever manga. An incredibly cute story, easy to read and easy to love.
