Synopsis

Most girls are crazy about jewelry, but not Anis Yamamoto. Not since her father gave her a rose choker as a child, claiming it was a protective amulet which would safeguard her from harm; however, if she ever took it off (a feat easier said than done!), she would be afflicted by a “punishment” of some sort- not like it matters to her, since the attention it attracts around school from faculty and students alike isn’t something she’s particularly fond of. But after a certain incident causes the choker to disappear, she realizes that this punishment her father spoke of might have been a bit more than she bargained for!

I found Barajou No Kiss while searching for a reverse harem. While it does have some original qualities, this series does not escape from many of the dreadful romance cliches.

Story: (7)
Anis has a choker given to her by her father which she cannot take off. One day, though, she loses it and while searching for it she discovers she's the Dominion of the Rose Knights. The title includes 4 cards and the servitude of 4 boys, all of which go to her school. It's starts out rather basic and drags on a bit to reach its main plot, and even now at chapter 20 the read more

Story 9/10
Anis Yamamoto was given a rose choker as a child by her father, telling her not to take it off under any circumstance because if she does a severe "punishment" will be given. Up until she was in highschool, the choker was still there (to choke her), but after some weird bat thingie bumped into her, voila! The choker came off! After chasing the little guy who bumped into her, she came across her teacher! Dun dun dun! And there she learns she is the "Rose Princess" and her knights are also students of her school! What will happen? (The cliche question)

Art 9/10

Agnes loses the choker and now has 4 knights to serve her forever, whats a girl to do? The manga has had only a few chapters translated so far but from what I can tell the story seems pretty unique; unique enough for a reverse harem of 4 knights summoned from cards, with special powers and loads of roses!

The characters each have very different personalities to each other (all of whom are really well developed especially the knights and its hard to just like one) and the female protagonist I suppose is meant to represent your average school girl who couldn’t care less read more

llustration: Amazing
Plot: Good
Characters: Nice

Story.... Well here is the deal. The story starts and lets you amazed. It makes your curiosity BURN!
Bu then, as it continues on, you find yourself grow tired... I mean when will anything be explained here?
And then, in just 4 chapters everything randomly starts to pour the half filled glass...
Don't misunderstand me, I loved this manga...
But I have to warn you it is a bit confusing...
AND the ending was kind of... curt!

Anyway, See for yourselves :)
Still I'm definitely recommend it for Fantasy, Love, Reverse Harem lovers

Both are written by Aya Shouoto, but SLH is her earlier work. They both have supernatural undertones and quirky guys. 
Both mangas deal with a girl surrounded at school by beautiful boys she can't get rid of. Though the plots are different the characters and humor are very similar.  
Pretear is one of my all time favorite manga series, and I simply could not stop noticing the similarities while I was reading Barajou no Kiss. In both, a girl who doesn't quite fit in suddenly finds herself surrounded by a group of (rather attractive looking) knights. Neither are your typical mahou shoujo because they both go beyond simply fighting evil. Both heroines are suddenly involved with the knights without quite knowing the whole story. Both sets of knights hide parts of the past and their history from her, and things are a lot more complicated than they appear. If you're a fan of one,  read more 
The leading ladies have powers that could influence the world, so their bishie knights have to protect them from people who wish them ill. In Heart no Diamond the knights should not fall in love with their princess, but in Barajou no Kiss the knights are free to love her. Enjoy the enticing knights! 
They the same because she got to kisss cards for her guardians to all come out. And she have aleast 5 boys you will see the last one at the end of the book. She is so lucky You should read this book. 
They both have great plots, good looking guys ;) (bit of a male harem in both) and both seem to find themselves in interesting relationship situations (bit of a spoiler, so that's all I can say =]) Hmm... The female protagonists are also pretty spunky, but not overly aggressive. They're smart, savvy and independent. They somehow make the best of what happens, and can stand on their own two feet. A really lovely plot line in both. =]
