Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: All I can say about the art: Damn them French costumes lookin fine as hell.
So cute. I really love the first story arc. I don’t like the other story arcs as MUCH but the main characters are too adorable to hate. The things that come out of their mouthes!
I’m so in love with historical pieces, ESPECIALLY European. French? French… royalty? I’m swooing! This one is definitely a gem among it’s kind. After the first arc I can see why people would trail off but the characters are just too darn adorable to leave alone! I also want that stupid romance to move at least a BIT.
Final Rating: 4/5
