Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Graphics are pretty. Nothing much else to say about that. :)
Let me start off by saying: THIS SERIES IS AMAZING. Now I must admit, I was a little disappointed for the first two chapters. It was really confusing and it was moving in an odd way. But once I got into the story I really got into it. I love the heroine who is a strong fighter but also a human being. The guys are great too. And the romance… surprisingly for this mangaka (I won’t go into detail about her other works) there is a lot of romance. Heart stopping awesomeness! And if you love fantasy, princes, castles and junk, this story is for you.
I have one beef. WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH JAPANESE PEOPLE AND RED HEADS!? I have read a total of TWO manga with red heads and they both make them look like desert people. Reminds me of Zelda. Red heads aren’t desert people! They come from Ireland!
Another thing I hated was the his and her mullets… but rest assured… it goes away. n____n
READ THIS. For the love of God read this. It will make you happy on the insides.
Final Rating: 4/5
