If you've seen Mars starring Vic Zhou and Barbie Xu you would know what i mean..

they kinda have similarities.

Barbie got raped by her step father and after that got scared of men. Then she met Vic, a playboy classmate of her. They're love story is complicated but i like it.. when i read Bitter Virgin I kinda thought that Mars was based on it, though i don't know if it is..

Who thinks they have similarities other than me?

Really? I never got that vibe. (And you should know that Mars started out as a shoujo manga by Fuyumi Soryu, and I prefer to address the main chars as Rei and Kira) In Bitter Virgin, Asahina's fear is extremely violent, and I get a much more desperate feeling from it, and it also includes so many themes that were never present in Mars. The whole thing with motherhood, and the guy's sister losing her baby and becoming bitter over that... that went in a completely different direction than Mars. And in Mars, I get a feeling like a more conventional romance, since Kira's rape didn't obstruct her relationship as much. I dunno... there seems to be a lot of 'traumatized girl' series out there, and these two aren't the only ones.
