I've read the first volume in Taiwan, and yes, the anime follows it pretty well save for some minor points and time shifts.

I like the anime art for the purple haired girl, in the manga she looks a little too bratty.

And Hiro still looks like a pedophile.

I just read Volume 2. For those of you who haven't read the manga yet, you better hope they don't follow the manga.

That book left me quite OTZ after finish reading it...

At the risk of spoiling the story, let me say one(two) thing(s)-

Hiro, you fuc*ing bastard, damn you for what you did and for what you are trying to make up for now.

Spoiler for Hiro:



Tetsu, you all surpassing fuc*ing bastard, damn you for what you have done. May your soul plunge into the deepest level of hell and burn and face your sin for eternalty.

Spoiler for Tetsu:


In conclusion, all the males in the manga (even the dark skin dude who forcefully held down Karada and kissed her) exhibits self-control that are in range with rabbits in breeding season.

I say all these, but, I would love to see the faces of the anime viewers should the anime studio decides to show these disturbing backstories.

But I guess not, because the anime is going for original plot. Shame.

In comparison to these, having Tetsu dump Karada in favor of Kotomi would be rather tame.

Not that I would want that to happen in the anime, either.

I just read volume 2 in Chinese, and I have to say, boy oh boy did this manga just jumped the shark for me. I was expecting a nice, surreal slice of life manga with a little drama sprinkled in akin to ARIA or YKK, but instead we get

Spoiler:


Such a downer... and where was Shoko during the whole second volume? I really hope the anime turns out better than this.

And Hiro is such a pedophile.

I had heard part of the manga spoilers before but after hearing them in more detail after reading this thread I really really hope the anime keeps going in a different direction. The manga seems kind of depressing.

Having watched up to episode 8 of the anime, I breathe a sigh of relief in that they don't seem to be going down the manga pathline.

But man oh man if they do the anime is doomed to failure.

If the evil parts of the manga really are that bad, then thank you all very much for the warnings. I guess I'll stay away from the manga, at least until the anime is over.

Well it's not exactly "evil", it's just that the mangaka kinda went off too far into the horny end of things and it doesn't work really well.

Oh my...! The manga spoiler changed the impressions I had.

Glad that I watched all episodes before reaching this thread (9 eppisodes of subs and 3 of raws). It still suck... and I thought that it's one of the best in 2006

wow...lol, i had absolutely no idea the manga was like that, and after watching the anime i thought it as acompletely innocent and slice-of-live type
I shall pretend the manga never existed and keep my good impressions of the anime.

Well I don't want to be mega-spoiled on the manga, so I'm glad you folks are putting that kind of stuff in spoiler brackets =)

I just read the Chapters 0-2 scans, and have some comments on that:
