SynopsisIt 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.
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.
Beautiful art. The costumes are elaborate and the character designs are all distinctive. For once it's easy to tell all the characters apart.
The heroine is compassionate and conflicted. She was the "crybaby" back home but is resolved to fulfill her mission and survive. Not enough of the manga is out yet to comment on the other characters.
Dark, but very enjoyable. Great for anyone who wants a slightly more mature story.
This is a really great idea for a manga. I'm excited to see where the author takes it. read more
