Ever since the day Ran Kurono's older brother was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she's a woman forever. For generations the Kurono family has served the Ohtori family as their First Knight, but 11 other lower knights with ill intentions of using the Ohtori family's authority vie for that title. Not only that, but Sei is being tested for being suitable for the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei's trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei's untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.

If you are not into Shoujo you most probably won't enjoy this manga.

Art: The art is very high Quality and beautiful, just a look inside the manga will give you a very good impression

Ran the protagonist is the archetype of kick ass cross dressing female characters in shoujo manga. Powerful, Beautiful, Kind, Strict, Protective, Honest to the bone, but also Soft, Elegant, Romantic and Caring. The portrayal of read more
