"Happily ever after" isn't the same for everybody.

Self-discovery is not always awesome, as Noshiro, Ayumi and Makoto are all finding out the hard way. Even the self-assured Sanada seems to be struggling. The final volume of this complicated love story proves that hanging on to that blue sky feeling of youthful love is an elusive and unpredictable task.

This series had all the feels, short and bitter sweet. Honestly teared up a bit. I really really hate ambiguous endings so that knocked out one star but other than that it was a fantastic read. I give the series overall a 4.8/5. I wish there was a epilogue that took place a little further in the future like maybe 2-3 years??
What a beautiful story about self discovery and growth. I was on the edge towards the end, because I didn't feel like there were enough pages to wrap it up, but it ended beautifully. It wasn't a definite answer or anything, it was more open, but that really suited the story. I like the way the author handled the characters and their relationships with each other, dealing with sexuality, and what it means to like somebody. It was all just so well done. And the story made me so fluttery. I really ...more

I can't explain it but I felt so... uneasy while reading it. Hiro's role played a huge part in this but the overall atmosphere of the story's just awkward. ...more

I like the story and its themes, but man was it skeevy about Hide’s character. Besides that, I like how the characters by the end are still trying to figure things out because they are still growing up.

...I’m lowkey disappointed with this???

Like...the past two volumes were wonderful and cute. 30 pages left of this final volume I was like “Huh??????”

...I mean it ended on a somewhat sweet note? But I feel like more could of happened? I give this book a 3 star, only cause it’s the last book of the series and I am really going to miss these characters and the complexities of the relationships they have.

Update: After thinking...yeah I changed my review to a 1 Star. Hahah...I’m sorry but

That Blue Sky Feeling is a refreshing look at being gay in Japan. Refreshing because it is more nuanced and less fetishizing than a lot that is out there.

Our story follows Noshiro, a guy who hates bullying and exclusion, and Sanada, a guy who has been bullied and excluded over rumors that he is gay. As Noshiro tries to mend the relationships Sanada has with his classmates, Sanada tells him that the rumors are true. Not to be deterred, Noshiro makes an effort to understand Sanada more and more,

A quick talk about the art...

It's passable but god, it's rushed. Backgrounds are gone... Hide's digital striped sweater is an eyesore (at the end). I mean, not awful in comparison to other manga or anything, anatomy is fine... just boring to look at.

For all that build-up, that last chapter felt very disappointing. It both wanted to explore this relationship, and then immediately backed away. Is there a sequel? I love me some UST (and resolution) but something didn't hit right.

Either way, it's

Cute but somewhat anticlimactic ending to this m/m romance manga series. I wanted more build from their relationship than I got, but, aside from a few problematic elements, the series is sweet throughout.
The art overall was pretty strong, with only a few instances of the Sanada character looking very odd. I felt like it really matched the tone of the story overall.

Gender, as sadly usual, is a strictly binary affair. That said we do touch on either end of the binary and the representation of gay characters in Japan was very interesting.
Not historically a huge fan of BL, I am trying to dip my toes in whenever I come across something that interests me. I've certainly read more then enough slow real

This series was almost great. It felt realistic in a lot of ways, especially the incredibly slow burn relationship between Noshiro and Sanada. Some readers will be disappointed that Noshiro ends the series still figuring out the exact nature of his relationship with Sanada and his sexuality, but that's also realistic, and it's kind of nice to see a character questioning without angst. But the entire thing is all but spoiled by the character of Hide. This is a 26 year old man who dates teenagers ...more

I'm so sad that this series is only three volumes long. I'd love to see what happens to Sanada and Noshiro after this series ended. They're such a cute couple of characters to follow. This final volume somewhat wrapped up in a way I had been expecting. I had thought there would've been a bit more of an emotional climax but I loved how sweet and wholesome it was.

It finished in a way that promised there was more to these characters journeys and we could decide what that was going to be.

This was a very cute end to this series. I really love how this series explores being gay, friendship, and first love. I would recommend it. There is an age gap romance element to it, but that didn't bother me. I don't see their relationship as creepy, it was more superficial than anything else. Give it a read! ...more

The three volumes kind of blurred together for me, but I enjoyed it all the way through. The ending was a little frustrating but I do appreciate that it's a very kid-friendly manga for the most part, there's absolutely no sex or even kissing. (There's just the creepy pedophile!!! Why is he still here??) ...more

The end came too soon for this wonderful exploration of emerging feelings while navigating close, intense friendships.

Does it have a happy ending? Yes. Does it leave me wanting a future installment? Yes.

Aww Noshiro is such a pure precious baby! This was such a sweet ending to this slow burn tale of self-discovery, friendship, and love. I am absolutely going to reread this series in the future.

5/5. 100% do recommend.

Super cute!

This is such a sweet story. It's more of an intense romance going on so you'd have to have storyline going into their college years to see it progresses, but it's a sweet coming of age, slice of life story that is still enjoyable even without hot feverish kisses.
