Okay. Octave is a serious manga, and for you homophobic lot, don't. This is a fantastic read, even if it is about a girl struggling to find the love of her life and it turns out being a girl. If you want to read something that isn't too long, has good drama, and sort of ecchi, read this. I really liked it because it's something that could actually happen. So, if you're not homophobic, or just against same sex relationships, read this. This story is rather interesting.

First off this is not a manga for younger people.
I do like this manga, but the main problem that I had with it was that it was mostly about sex and her trying to get through a few conflicting feelings. Personally I wished that there was a bit more plot to it more than just sex. Though it was entertaining to read I must say that. I spent a long time reading this and was entertained.

I can't describe the emotions that went through as I read each page. This story is a genuine treasure that can only be described by reading it for yourself. I can assure you that the feeling that you feel will after finishing these chapter will leave you with satisfaction.

The character development and the realism, Setsuko would have to be my favorite characters in this. I like how this actually took it's time over 36 chapters progressing the story. But I can only give this a 4 out of 5; sadly there are parts of useless drama stuff that they just throw at you. But other than that it was a very well made manga. I would like to pick it up if it's in English.
