Miki begins to learn more of what it really means for Hiro to be a Deliverer and despite his insistence that Deliverers cannot fall in love with humans her feelings for him grow deeper and deeper. When Reika returns to threaten everything for Miki she realizes that she has a painful choice to make.

Still....LOVE IT!

I am anxious to read the last two books in this series, but have to wait till I get back to work to get my copies that are on hold for me! Great series for readers who are not totally into graphic novels or manga. Black and white pictures, but the details are great.

In the second volume of Miki Falls, Miki and Hiro's relationship starts to blossom. Miki starts to accompany Hiro on his jobs and has difficulty when her best friend is involved. I enjoyed this as much as the first. The end gave me goosebumps!

The ending is really adorable. I really liked this seris because they are romantic and not sick like some comics you read these days.

FYI: If you didn't read the first story in the series yet (MIKI FALLS: SPRING), and you don't want the story of MIKI FALLS: SUMMER ruined, then STOP!

Hiro has not only let Miki become his friend and let her into his world a little, he's even letting her see his work. Sometimes he even takes her with him. But Miki wants more. Whenever she tries to push, even just a little, Hiro shies away. Miki can't tell if it's just her, or if it's Hiro. He claims

Phew, this volume *was* a little better, although Miki's nosiness is irritating beyond belief and Reika's character is beyond stereotypical. I mean, she even has a name you want to spit out with sound and fury when you see her (I'm not saying it's not a nice name- it's very pretty!- but it does make a good name for a bitchy villain, too).
The artwork still irritates me, and, like in the first volume, the story is told and explained far too much in text when really, the advanta

You know that a novel slash manga is a good one when while reading it, it bestows upon you another novel slash manga; when it beckons your muse to come by and hit you wither her gracious fan one last time.
So thank you Miki Falls 2: Summer for that, and I wish that none of my friends would ever read you so they wont have the pleasure of pointing their fingers at me and accusing me of being highly romantic!

it only gets 3 stars because the art and paneling was so good. the story was pretty lame to me, high school love story. no mystery to solve like book one. didn't really care about this one at all, as it was rather soppy.

I think this was a really great story, it was also very easy to read. I think the ending was really interesting because at the end Reika was telling Miki things about Hiro, and then Miki decided to not see Hiro, but then as the days passed She went to see Hiro.

This review is applicable for books 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Miki Falls series.

*SPOILERS*

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with the last book in the series, Miki Falls: Winter. From the first till the third book in the series, I was hooked. I wanted to know more about the characters and how they develop as a result of the situations they are made to endure. Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me. There was little to no development of the main characters and no mention of the other characters

Marathoning this series was a great idea. I'm loving rereading Miki and Hiro's story! Miki Falls: Summer took the reader deeper into Hiro's story, and his relationship with Miki. It also introduced a new influential character... I don't remember how she affects the rest of the series? How will Hiro's superiors react to his falling in love with a human? Not having picked up these books since middle school, I don't remember a lot of what happens, which is kind of exciting! I cannot wait t

As Miki forms a bond with Hiro she finds out he is a deliver- a person who tries to preserve love. She isn't bothered by that until she find out that Hiro and her can't be together.They both love each other so they decide to keep it a secret. But can they really keep it a secret for long? To be honest about the second book, I really didn't see this coming at all. I thought it would be different bu this kind of surprised me, which kind of made me like the story and plot a bit more interesting.

Recommends it for: People who liked the first volume!
So, I finished this book this morning within a matter of 30 minutes, so I think I can say that I enjoyed it! It was definitely a compelling follow up to the first volume, Spring. It was interesting to see how the job of the Deliverers worked; [SPOILER] how they observe and take notes, and how Hiro did those incantations to capture that couple's love inside Anra. And I loved the artwork especially!

Anyway, I definitely recommend this manga to anyone who's wondering if they should continue on with

I really wanted to like this series. I had heard very good things about it. However, I found all four graphic novels to be boring and had very little motivation to even finish the series.

The animation is pretty 85% of the time. To me, it read like a storyboard, which I guess you could say is how graphic novels are supposed to come off. However, It took me away from the story, more so than when I have read manga in the past.

Not my cup of tea.

In my opinion, this was better than the first book in the series "Miki Falls Spring." Maybe its just that I didn't like the suspense of the first book. Mark Crilley's drawings are really good as always. The story line was pretty strong, and left you with the satisfaction that the characters actually learned something in the story. Cute book for preteens and up.

I really enjoyed it. Loved the ending! It was a very "awww" moment. As an aspiring artist, I really appreciated all the wonderful drawings and I felt the story had developed more from the first entry. I'm glad I'm reading the series now because I can keep greedily reading them all without having to wait for the next publication!

The thing i love about mangas is that they are easy to read regardless and they always have different styles of drawing his characters sometimes to come out 2d sometimes but not all the time i think it's the way he draws his faces but the story is moving on and they got caught by reika so yeah defenitely reading the next one

It's a fairly popular concept: supernatural/immortal boy falls for a normal girl and their love is forbidden. But Mark Crilley brings it to life in an all new way in Miki Falls! I thoroughly enjoyed this book (LOVED THE ENDING SCENES) and am excited to read the next one.

I'm really glad I bought this series and so glad I got them all at once because the first one was no enough. I went straight from Spring into Summer and all the way through. I love the way these are written, the way it feels so much reading a novel. I love the art, the characters, the story. Just love love love.

This book is so good it's not the same as the other stories I read, i'm looking excited to read the next volume..
The actions attract you to know what's going to happen next and the for myself I felt as if I was watching a movie.

I'm finding the side story about the job of the Deliverers more fascinating than the main story, which only seems to get in the way. Still, there are some cute moments & I would like to know how it all wraps up (this is book 2 of 4).

Better than the first one. I like how when people storm off the sound they make when they walk is 'chep chep chep'. I have a theory where all this is going, I'll have to keep reading to find out if I'm right.
