A manga version of The Fault in Our Stars, wherein our introverted protagonist discovers his classmate's secret - she has a terminal disease with possibly only a year or so to live. It's long on schoolboy fantasy with the quiet, thoughtful lad being drawn out of his shell and away from his books by the attractive and outgoing girl, but it plays out so sweetly I was quite won over.

Ok, like...I knew what was going to happen from the beginning this really got me.

This was cute, beautiful and sad and so much more. This story was definitely not as straightforward as the description makes it seem.

The only downfall were the final 2 chapters, they felt a little rushed and some parts felt slightly unneeded, but man oh man, this was another good one.

If you like Orange or Your Name...this is another manga that you should read ASAP.

Dopo aver visto il film d’animazione, il live action e letto il manga, posso dire di aver visto tutte le sfaccettature di questa opera e averla potuta apprezzare a pieno. I vari livelli del loro rapporto (dall’amicizia, all’amore, alla metafora per la vita sociale) sono ognuno scelto e reso al meglio in ciascuna opera, e in tutti i casi la storia risulta splendida, valida e toccante. Manca il libro, introvabile in Italia.

So I found out about this by walking around Barnes and Nobles and I saw the wack-ass title and thought, "Sounds like it's about zombies, but the cover shows nothing about zombies. I must find out what's up."
It also sounds highkey cannibalistic, but worry not! No human pancreai (because pancreas' is stupid) were consumed in this book. There's more explanation in the book, but from what I remember (I read this really fast so I don't remember much), it was part of an old belief or an old saying.

I was going to rate this 3 stars and then I got to page 340 and didn't stop crying and I couldn't rate it anything other than a five. There's a bit in this that completely came out of nowhere, even though I made a passing comment about it earlier in the manga, and I honestly can't believe how much it managed to blindside me. I had to put this down for several hours just so I could cope.

This is really beautiful. Above all it's about finding love, not in a romantic way, but in a true form of frie

Dying to get to know you.

Rated Teen this sounds like a strange tale of cannibalism but in reality is a story about a girl with a pancreatic disorder that has numbered her days and a boy that doesn't know how to have friends making an important connection. Prepare your heart as two young people with many differences find a common balance in the secret they both share. So yeah this story has death, alcohol consumption, some violence, and some moments that could have lead to sexual encounters thoug

I'm not the strongest Manga reader, but this read very easy for me. It's a high 2 and for MOST of the story I really liked it. However, there was just one scene that really bothered me and totally skewed me being able to give it a higher rating. It could possibly be a Japanese thing, however, I would certainly hope not bc this action should not be okay in any country.

Precioso, aunque demasiado largo para mi gusto.

No os lo recomiendo si sois sensibles y no os apetece llorar, porque vais a hacerlo.

4.5 stars!

This is a very solid and emotional story despite its weird English translation of a title. The plot twist for sure got me, I was not expecting it at all 😦

Recogiendo el testigo argumental de uno de los best sellers dentro del género Young Adult (Bajo La Misma Estrella), Quiero Comerme Tu Páncreas repite la fórmula de protagonista-adolescente-enferma-de-cáncer para adentrarnos en un relato sobre la importancia de aprovechar el momento y conducirnos a un final inesperado que trata de acabar con los clichés que normalmente encontramos en este tipo de historias.

Wirklich schöne, wenn auch traurige Geschichte.

Jetzt ergibt auch endlich alles Sinn. Aber die Story ist zu tiefst traurig :'(

I tell you! I have dust in my eyes!
"We've all wound up where we are because of the decisions we've made. All the choices you've made in your life, and all the choices I've made, are why we met that way. [...] We can't even chalk it up to fate or something. We met each other because that's where our choices led us."

I knew I was going to cry. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.

And because I'm a glutton for punishment, I read this anyway, and I regret nothing.

It was the title that first caught my attention, as it is a very "WTF?" kind

I recently saw the emotional train wreck that is this movie; I damn near cried in a theater full of other sniffling otaku and don't regret a damn thing. Being I was so invested in seeing the movie and hadn't read the light novel, I waited to read the manga until after I saw the movie; I didn't want to spend the time comparing film and book like I'm often guilty of doing. The movie was amazing, if you haven't seen it you need to. Now, on to the manga.

Having seen the movie I don't think this manga

Esperaba más. Más llorera, sobre todo, porque aquí sabes a lo que vienes. Después de Angel Beats! y Your lie in april me lancé a este manga en busca de más caña, porque un buen manga de llorar es algo maravilloso y a veces está bien fastidiarte una tarde hecho una bola en el sofá pensando que nada tiene sentido. Quiero comerme tu páncreas parecía el siguiente escalón lógico en las historias que te dejan el "kokoro" hecho trizas.

Y todo el comienzo del manga es precisamente eso, lo que necesit
This book reminded me so much of Orange: The Complete Collection, Volume 1, mostly because of similar themes of death, friendship, and student life. It's crazy that this book managed to still hold a twist, despite knowing from the very beginning that Sakura has a terminal illness. Sumino still manages to surprise the reader.

It's a heart-breaking, but also extremely touching story. I love the gentleness of it and the building of friendships that occur within it. There's a quiet strength radiatin

The title seems weird but lies in the pages of this manga is a poignant tale about learning to live, opening yourself up to others and being yourself. This is the story of a girl who is dying and decides to only tell one person other than her family about her prognosis. As she starts to open up to this boy, who is shy and has no other friends, she starts to embody the fact that he doesn't care what other people think about him. As the boy and girl draw closer he starts to realize how important s ...more
