All the couples that end up in these last four chapters were the ones I were routing for! Although the last chapter wasn't super concrete, it heavily implies (view spoiler), which is still, even seven years later, my favorite couple in all of the manga I've read.

Forgive me. I'm being nostalgic. This series comprised of my childhood, and I so very, very much enjoyed it back in 2009. :(

I already did a review of the series in Shugo Chara Vol. 1, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I finished the series!
Yesterday, I was browsing through the shelves of my library and when I saw volumes 11-12, I jumped at them like a monkey. And I finished them both last night.

I loved Shugo Chara as a whole series. There was beautiful art, an original plot, and it's ADORABLE. Though the ending for this series was very, very, very, very, very happy, THERE ARE STILL SOME UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

Aww, I LOVE THE ENDING!!!!! (nobody will really read it, so I can just give this away. Except for you, Diana!). Not so much the begining or the middle.... Nagihiko is in love with Rima, Kairi has a small crush on Yaya when he already swore he loves Amu, Kukai is with Utau ( they are so adorable together despite their age difference!), and Nikadou is marrying Sanjou. The best scene was the end. Ikuto returns from his travels and attends the wedding and visits Amu at the amusement park, and Hikaru ...more

Review to follow!

... I got goosebumps for some godforsaken reason.

And with that, my love/hate relationship with this manga comes to an end.

4 stars.

This was a beautiful story, even though it was for younger kids. I loved the lessons it taught and how you feel in love with the characters. I'll be watching the anime, for sure.

I wish Amuto had a more definite ending.... Kaiya really took me by surprise, but I love Kutau.
A very good series :)

The end of this series is adorable. Like seriously, adorable. There's no other way to describe it. It does make it feel like a complete end.

The second real kiss in the series and it still wasn't even the main couple. UGH. xD My heart.

A good conclusion, but not the greatest. I like that we see how each person has changed in their relationships with each other and all the ways they're growing. Sad to leave this story behind, but feel like a lot of positive things are in the future for everyone.

It was a confusing first half, not very interesting should have just added this ending to vol 11th ending

This was a collection of short stories involving couples from *Shugo Chara!*, some of them being expected and some of them not.

The first story is about KuUtau (Kukai & Utau), where they keep texting to meet up for ramen contests, and end up falling in love. Short and sweet. I liked it.

The second story is about Rima & Nagihiko/Nadeshiko. As a couple, I like them. I like how this was a slower story that showed them getting to know one another just a little better before opening completely

First things first: this is technically not the final volume of Shugo Chara! Despite what the back cover might say, this is actually the Encore one-volume sequel to the main story, which ended in the eleventh volume. Naturally, the Encore volume is folded into the parent series to make it easier for fans to find it in bookstores and make things less confusing with different titles. Tomato, to – well, you know. It is more a collection of chapters exploring various characters' futures and feelings ...more

What a cute way to end the year (and this series!) Shugo Chara is such a sweet manga and anime!!

While I enjoyed all the chapters, my favourite one (and the one I really resonated with) was Nagihiko and Rima's chapter. Maybe I'm slightly biased because they are also one of my main OTPs, but the focus on spring, blooming smiles and being the "character of your own story" was really endearing.

I really loved it and it was such a great ending. All of the questions had been answered, except the biggest one about Amu though, but I was still well contented.

I was thrilled in every page and each story was amazing. This manga really deserves a great amount of praise.

It's over and I am so sad :( Still haven't finished the anime though, and there is Shugo Chara Chan! so I guess all is not lost yet....

I loved all the new relationships developing, and I was so happy Ikuto could make an appearance (✿◠‿◠) I just wish I could have more of this story and know what happens to everyone! Love this series so much.

Amu was a great character, she was a little whiny at times but overall she was able to fight and stand up for what she believed in. I liked her relationship with everyone else.

The guardians added some comedic humor to the series and you can't go wrong with a little battle magic.

For fans of Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew.

Just a collection of short stories. Not much of an overarching plot here, just trying up loose ends. Not much to say about it. Definitely worth reading if you've followed the series this far. :)

It was like a novel length omake. I found it tiresome. Super cute art, but self-indulgent as the myriad cast members each had their moment in the sugar coated sunset.
