Plot:
A girl and boy decide they want to fall in love. He's introverted, mean and has terrible trouble articulating what he really wants to say. She's shy, cute and is the Ultimate Weapon. During the course of their relationship, interruptions of missions parts them for periods of time. Etc. (don't feel like writing anymore...)

Title: Saikano
By: Shin Takahashi
Type: Manga (there's also the anime version)

Have you heard of this? The art is simply adorable, much different than your "average manga style" and is for mature readers (due to some sexual innuendo). I don't take to shojo manga EVER but this was so adorable ^^;
Volumes: 7 (Complete) http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=1816Published by: VizAnime Episodes: 13 + 2 OVAs*This series has also live action film released

Wow, I didn't know about the live version...o__o

The mangaka also did Kimi no Kakera (Pieces of You). I <3 that manga o__o But there hasn't been scanlations of it as of late ==;

I watched the anime, but I haven't read the manga. For me, Saikano is a profound movie about love and war, and it's definitely for mature people. If anyone hoping for a typical shoujo anime, then don't watch Saikano. However, if anyone hoping for anime that will make you think afterward, then Saikano is your anime.

Yeah, it's pretty sad BUT it seems very true to life ^^; From what I've observed in the manga, the everyday tribulations of a girlfriend and boyfriend, the pressures of sex and etc. For mature audiences yes ^^;

Where can you read the manga? You can buy it ^^; snoopycool used to scanlate it until it got licensed by Viz.

I wasn't sad. I was bitter. It drove me nuts. Anybody want to explain why they didn't explain how the girl became the weapon and all that stuff? This show pissed me off :angry:

Oh no, really?! That stinks. I saw the commercial for it and it did look a little odd. The graphics were so fake. Anyway, by bad, what do you guys exactly mean? Like bad acting or just like entire movie bad, haha?

I've read the review of the movie from a Korean blog a long time ago.

So I don't remember much details.

But (I think if I remember correctly) there was very very few good thing about it.

Don't watch it if you have read the manga and/or watched the anime.

The movie will just ruin it.

Don't trust me too much though since I myself didn't watch it.

^I understand. Thank you for your help! If the movie is anymore depressing like the anime, then I'll just skip it, lol. I don't wanna feel like crap after watching something, even if Chise is adorably cute. ^_^;;
