It is a tad but repetitive but actually ended quite nicely. I liked the entire series.
The problems that they solved were very real. You could easily believe them happening.
The ending felt very true as well. Would you want to let go of the first friend you had?
I've rarely seen something like this from shonen and I like it.
The art was amazing. So realistic. A lot of skill and a lot of time and effort. I applaud you.

Reason for Reading: Next (and last) book in the series.

Volume 3, the last in this trilogy, continues on with the theme of the previous books with Picasso drawing the heart of another student and diving into the picture. This story revolves around a boy who has not gone to school for the past several years as he is in a state of depression where he feels that nothing is worth it; life is useless and all pursuits pointless as the world will end one day and we are all going to die anyway. His mothe

Okay, wow. Just wow. The ending of this book is just an emotional gut punch. For something that's disguised its self as a weird fluffy thing it really did just pull the rug out from under me. All of the most silly things are explained (but not all of them, which confuses me a little) and Picasso finally gets some closure.

I really like this series, but this one seemed less poignant than book 2, so yeah. Jeanne is such a pretty maid! I love her as a girl since that's who she truly is. “He bumps into people and passes out. He's weird like that.” What's weird is that it's happened so often to Picarin that people don't really care anymore. It's horrible that Yuto thinks it's pointless to have dreams because the world will end. Yes, the economy may be bad, but that doesn't mean people should stop fighting for what the ...more

After a tragic accident takes the life of his only friend, Chiaki, Hikaru Hamura, or "Picarin," is given a second chance, but he must continue helping people or he'll rot away. When someone near to Hamura is in need he is compelled to create an image of their 'secret heart,' which is usually highly detailed and full of personal symbolism. Then Hamura and Chiaki, who has stayed with Hamura to help him as a tiny angel, dive into the picture (Hamura is seen by everyone to pass out) to help the pers ...more

I likes this series more and more as it went on, so I'm sad that this was the last volume (though it did have a really good ending).

Poor Picasso; we finally get to see what's in his heart this time. So sad, I would have cried if there weren't people in the room with me; but I'm sure I'll cry when I read it again. Oh, but aside from the very nearly boob-flash shot, yeah, it was a good way to finish it all.

This has to be one of my favorite short manga series. The art is great and the story is pretty unusual. I like that the main character remains reluctant til the bitter end and he is so amusingly pervy!

I saw the ending coming a mile away, but that doesn't mean the series was great summer fun. It's lighthearted, experimental, cute, meaningful, and pretty.

A interesting finale, still the story lags behind the wonderful artwork, but still is enjoyable.
