Easily the best manga I have ever read! Mars is a romance full of heartbreaking twist and turns, but ultimately happy resolutions. It is a must read for anyone who enjoys romance! Add on a unique and elegant art style that beautifully portrays the character's feelings, one understands why Mars was once a best-seller in Japan. For me, the reason I rank this novel so highly is due to the world it creates and wraps the reader in. Talking about attainable futures and letting go of aspirations for the success of relationships, Mars captures the ugly and seldom portrayed parts of love: jealousy, painful pasts, and sacrifices.
