I love this series. There's a good bit of character development going on here, especially with the rival. And so pretty. The unrelated bonus story was ok, but it didn't quite live up to the main story. But at least it was just as pretty.
Mitsuki is doing well as a singer, along with the help of two harbringers of death. Her music is doing well and she still hopes to find her friend, who she loves very much.

I loved the first volume of this. Thought it was so good. This volume is not bad, but I didn't like it quite as much as the first one. This took a little bit to get into, but once I finally did get into it, I enjoyed it very much.

I really like Mitsuki. I think she is a really sweet character and I liked that she explained more...more
Although the romance is cute, there's nothing that spectacular about this series. We have the main character Mitsuki who has a passion to become a singer but has a tumor in her throat that requires surgery but it might damage her vocal cords. So she runs away and meets to angles of death that they assist her in becoming a world famous singer.

You got your drama, funny moments with the likable characters, romance, and all the other stuff you'd expect from a shojo manga.

Takuto, Meroko, and Izumi...more
Volume 2 consists of chapters 6 through 9, plus a standalone bonus story called "Gin-yu Meika".

Overall, volume 2 is definitely an improvement over volume 1, as it feels as if the author is finally getting a handle over the story. Where as volume 1 felt very sporadic in story (as if there were no long term plans), volume 2 starts to flesh out the characters and what possibly might be the true story of the series. As usual, things get a bit sappy and cheesy, but this comes with the territory of sh...more
Loved this series!!! I love all of the manga this author writes and draws!!!

Still good. Second read reveals plot hole concerning the relationship between Takuto and Mitsuki (and the age difference that is probably about 10 years) but hey this is in a manga where the 12yo turns into a 16yo whenever she needs to for plot purposes and in his mind Takuto never lived past 16 so.... I deem it not squicky. Still a little odd but I think it works.
The art is absolutely adorable! The heart warming scenes between Takuto and Mitsuki are just... So cute! And the way Meroko gets all gun-ho about it afterwards! Hahaha.

I definetaly reccomend anyone who hasn't read this before to read it. The tradegy, the drama and the love just makes you cry at some pages.
Again, very different and more fast paced than the anime, but just as good in my opinion! I also enjoyed the short comic at the end of the book which was about playing the piano and why we choose our hobbies. All in all a very good manga with very good art as well!
August 2013: 5 Stars
Yet another cute volume (although there were parts that confused me)! Just one question: who's the guy at the end that makes Mitsuki gasp? Is it *the* Eichi??
I can't wait to read volume 3!
I'm pretty sure I read this one, but I don't think I was able to get passed it before I started reading other books and forgot to finish the amazing sags of Full Moon Cherryblossom (english translation)!!!:)
This series is one of a kind Mitsuki's journey to find herself and live out her dream is touching and with some quirky characters to fill the pages I never felt like there was a dull moment

Jamas había tardado tanto en leer un manga u_u´, seguiré con los siguientes tomos para hacer un review más objetivo porque hasta ahora me parece demasiado predecible y cursi.

A definite improvement from the last volume. I still don't love it, but I'm getting more interested in finding out how the story unfolds.

I still like the plot and characters, but *please* tell me why do they always add extra-stories??? At least this one sucked. Sorry.

This volume was good. Loved the illustrations, as usual. It's deeper into the story... (duh-duh-dum!)
Jessica Moniz
The story at the end, with Kanon and Akiyoshi was so sweet, and I can't wait to hear more!
This series is an okay series, sometimes I don't know what exactly is going on but whatever.
