I can’t live without you. You’re my sun. I would die for you.
— Rei Kashino, MARS
My favorite Manga- MARS
Kira Aso and Rei Kashino meet for the first time in a park when Rei asks a very shy and reserved girl, (Kira) who is sketching, for directions to a local hospital. Not wanting to speak to him due to her reserved nature, she instead draws him a map and hands it to him without saying a word. However, on the back of the directions, Rei later finds out is a sketch of a mother and child. This though, would not be their only meeting! When summer vacation ends and school resumes they are both surprised to find that they are in the same class.At this point Rei find himself infatuated with Kira because of that sketch of the mother and child. Later that day, Rei looks for Kira and walks into the schools art room to find Kira’s art teacher sexually harassing her. From that day on Rei promises to protect Kira in exchange for a painted version of the mother and child sketch on the back of the map. He also offers to “lend Kira his body,” She takes up his offer but not in the way he thought: A model for her art.
It was so much fun reading this manga and watching both Kira and Rei grow as individuals! I definitely recommend it!
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
For everyone who is angry because Haruhi and Tamaki didn’t kiss in the anime just remember in the manga they confessed their love, kissed, got married, and were the first of the group to have kids.
