Oujo Alexandra felt like an inspired sequel to the play of the two sisters in the sister manga Glass no Kamen. I mean it felt like an illustrated play which is very fun to read.
It's a about a princess who losses her ability to see in an accident that changes her life and her confrontations with her stepmother and her children (It's an infusion of Cindy, Snowy and the imagination of the mangaka). Although there are holes and the message of trust solves everything feels too wishy-washy, it's a fine piece.
Maybe because it's an old manga the characters were typical fairy-tale flat characters
such as the goody-two-shoes princess and so forth.
A breath of fresh air. Short, easy to read and optimistic. It's not a happy tale, it follows the princess's misfortunes but at least for me it wasn't heavy especially with the princess's attitude toward everything.
