Hi guys I was wondering what your thoughts were on the tranlation from MARS manga to the live action sopaopera. I personally own all of the manga and I think they did a great job personally.

Well, I haven't watched the entire drama yet, but it was a bit funny at first... I had imagined Rei and Kira differently...
There is indeed attention to the little details and it's a good production, but so far it gives me a completely different feel than the manga.

I also read the entire manga series and have seen the entire Mars drama. I personally liked the changes that the drama made compared to the manga. The difference in the drama gave it more depth and more meaning, which is why I enjoyed it so much! I also like the differences between the drama and manga because it made both stories more interesting! I would recommend to everyone to read the manga first and then watch the drama!

Well I had read the manga years ago and i loved it. Usually i don't like manga to live action because they always seem to change the story so much. However with Mars, this was not the case. It still follows the manga pretty close. Initially i didn't like the casting of the characters because i had imagined Rei and Kira differently but as i watched through the episodes, I think Barbie and Vic fdid a good job making this one of my favorite dramas.

I have read the manga and watched the series too.
they are different is a sense, but still very closely linked. So for me it's easier to think of them as two version of one great story. And I found that both the manga and live-action are excellent in their own ways.


While the manga focuses more on Rei's and Kira's relationship, the live-action focuses on the tragedies and characters more.

About the casts, they are all too cute and sweet despite the theme being rather dark and heavy. I guess that's how life is. You really cannot judge people by how they looks outside >.<.

Anyway, I think people who didn't read the manga cannot really catch up on the live-action since it is a rather complicated story. So, people, I suggest you read the manga too! XD

I have nothing to say more than; they did a great job! I loved both the manga and the drama!! I think it's one of the best they've made from manga to drama!

I'd also like to point out that you do not have to read the manga to understand the drama. But I recomend you do read it but you don't have to. Because personally, I started with the drama and I read the manga after, and I understood the whole thing very well.

I'd say it's pretty damn good! And most Manga to Live action... well most are good, but this was real good. Mars wasn't really one of my favorites and didnt leave too much of an impression on me, but the Drama is all I can talk about with my friends right now ahahha, I'm so involved with this drama. I'm about to watch the last episode now.

haha the same as the series.
MARS by Soryu Fuyumi

I really enjoyed the live action series...I think other than Kira (Qi Luo), the actors/actresses were perfect for the role. Not saying that Barbie wasn't good for the role, just that in my mind i'd pictured her a bit differently.
I read the manga first, and it's been my favorite series for pretty much since i began with manga, and it's wonderful that there's a Live Action :D

I've read the manga and I've also seen the drama. I think they're quite similar, the only thing that in the drama is totally absent is the part in wich Kira wants to go work. I like very much the drama, and the actors too! Ling on that bike is really hot! Initially I imagined the characters in a different way, but after a few episodes I've got accustomed to thei appearence and focused on their acting. The cryng Vic Zhou is spectacular!
