Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: I really like the graphics. I have always loved this style. It’s a little more solid then the typical shoujo. A lot less sparkles and it’s a nice change.
I want to love this so bad. You don’t even know. This was written by the same author of “Shoujo Guard” (HATED) and the same author as “Hakuji” (Absolutely loved to bits and pieces), and you can see parts of both in there.
The beginning is VERY hectic without a solid foundation. You go from event to event not caring about anything or anyone. But where this author really shines is in her creepy messed up characters. As soon as we get to know the four guys and their problems, you get very attached. It deals with some very real psychological issues in an honest light. PS: I am totally cheering for Fuyu, all the way, across the sky.
On the flip side the heroine is flippant and hollow. She’s everything the boys need her to be. Her passion towards “Revenge” seems shallow. Also am I the only one very confused about why she has to be a boy? Really? It doesn’t add anything dramatic as far as I can see. Also the so called “Enemy” is a joke.
Read this not for the main plot, aka heroine exacts revenge on her fathers enemy, but instead for the lives of the tortured boys she saves.
Final Rating: 3/5
