Synopsis

It starts with poisonous herbs under the cradle. Then under the sheets. And inside the clothes. Even mixed in the milk that they feed the newborn. This way the child gradually gets used to poisons and becomes the perfect assassination tool - the “Poison Princess” whose every kiss, tear and even touch bring death. Her only chance of survival is to fulfill her duty as an assassin and find a way to live on in the enemy land she is sent to… if her heart is strong enough.

Story
Great idea for a josei. The heroine's body is saturated with poison, preventing her from ever being with anyone she loves. Her mission is to kill the king of an enemy country, but he seems to be a decent ruler and his handsome sons further complicate the plot. It has horror elements, including her best friend being burned alive and the suffering she went through eating poison as a child.

Art
Beautiful art. The costumes are elaborate and the character designs are all distinctive. For once it's easy to tell all the characters apart.

Character
The heroine is compassionate and conflicted. She was read more

A girl who could never be free, a boy who was crazy, a boy who was perfect, and a protector.
The first chapter was confusing but it get's better around the third. It was sad, sweet, romantic, dark and just radiated hope.
Through the whole story you find yourself debating who your routing for. An incredible story of love and pain.

User Recommendations

Both mangas have main characters whose bodies are so saturated with poison that they have become assassination tools in themselves. However, Dokuhime is dark and twisted, while Apothecarius Argentum is lighter and "more shoujo"
It's sweet and sad and a little dark. It's absolutely perfect
