actually it was based on a famous novel which was based on a true story, Seo Kuji just did the manga version of it, it wasnt his own story. Just like how he is doing for Love Plus -Rinko

But it was still done by him, both story and art. And what's the source on the novel? I'm interested in reading it.

No, I know what you mean, but still...we can argue that Vinland Saga and Historie aren't original work then either.

What's the source on the novel anyway? Do you know the name or whether or not it really is based off a novel?

Kimi no Iru Machi means 'A Town Where You Live' iirc.

Oh how I already see Seo going to the same support group as the author from GE for her "indecent" handling of Shou
Going to be really lonely here in this thread since "most" people will stop reading for they hate what's become of KNIM... or wait, are they really going to stop reading?

@Waven atleast Shou was defendable and I myself defended her along with many others, but Eba is just disgusting

Ye I realize that I'm virtually the only one left that still roots for the main girl, as I always do in any series, I don't care anymore, not going to defend her anymore, all that's left is to use massive irony now and then
still don't see what's so terrible about the plot development either, I quite like how this opens up to some nice upcoming drama although the possible paths are pretty straightforward.
Hey since like everyone hates this series right now for taking a turn that no one expected (hence the disappointment) does that mean KNIM is groundbreaking and will be taken as an example for future series and you guys just fail to appreciate it ? just thinking

@Waven: As Dark Mage said, there's a huge difference. Shou made a mistake and felt sorry for it, plus she and Utsumi were never going out in the first place. Eba pulling what she did is about 1000x worse. There's no defending that.

You know, it takes alot to make a guy like me to change preferences, I usually stick with the girl I like in a manga, until the manga finishes, no matter what she does, like in Ichigo100% I stayed true to Nishino, in Suzuka I liked Honoka and stayed her fan (even so, I m not unhappy with the ending as I never really exactly disliked Suzuka as I understood her reasons and understood her as a character, so despite being a Honoka fan I could sympathise with Suzuka), in GE I like Yuki and I intend to stay her fan until GE runs its course, in Umi no Misaki I m a Shizuku fan and plan to stay her fan.

But its only KNIM that forced me, for the first time, to change my preferred girl. I was a very strong Eba fan in the beginning but Nanami slowly gained my respect (and this respect was born even before she started acting cute) and I became her fan(even though I know she is never gonna win) while I not only stopped being Eba's fan, I became someone who is absolutely disgusted by her. My point is, I m a pretty tolerant guy who forgives and is lenient and genrally backs up my preferred girl no matter what she does, but Eba just crossed those limits.

It is time for me to take a break from this manga a little bit. I will read it again, but only when 10 chapters pile up. I am so infuriated right now that I am sickened. At the moment I hate both main characters. Eba, you are unforgivable in my eyes. Haruto grow a pair and stop chasing Eba. Unforutantely when Haruto does this, Eba will prolly try to invade his life again. If Haruto takes her back, then I will drop this manga.

The hurts, insults and what else that Yuzuki gave to Haruto is OVER 9000!!! And I'm shocked to see that Haruto is up for more!! Yuzuki doesn't even deserve an Half and Half ending if you know what I mean... the roaches are everywhere but I can't believe what's still stuck in Haruto's heart!!!

Lots of people won't stop reading this, some because they always read manga to the end, some because they don't care about Eba at all, and some because they like such plots. But I'm sure a lots of people will stop reading it, or at least will put this manga into "hiatus". Like me, for example, I'm not reading KNIM since "Tokyo trip", just lurking on forum and checking spoilers. Mostly because I expected a plot twist like this (I was expecting NTR elements in this manga, not the exact plot).

You should compare current development to REC manga and chapter 24 (I think), in which female protagonist suddenly cheated on male protagonist. Lots of people were pissed not because she cheated, but because she was not punished (I think, I've dropped REC around chapter 30), nor she has shown any sign of guilt. Many people dropped REC after that chapter, but some people are still reading it, because it's still ongoing.

IMHO Eba has 4-6 chapters to redeem herself, or lots of people will really start to drop this manga.

That's why I'm beginning to wonder why I'm not that bothered at all by Eba while everyone else seems to rage like hell, it's not like I let girls in real life toy with me either so I really don't know where this is coming from. Anyway, I appreciate my own attitude here, spares me what you guys are going through right now.

@Arturro: Wait, so Eba is a b**** in heat now that "cheated" on Haruto because she's a bad and unfaithful person? - c'mon guys, keep it rational.
