Similar to Pandora hearts in the sense it falls apart in the last quarter.

The series kicks off with Our Crimson Prince of the Demon realm sent to earth to find someone and have to take there soul but he must avoid the angels as they are stronger than the demons will try to arrest them if they see them on Earth. During his search he meets a girl who is totally unrelated to everything. Absolutely unrelated. Due to various circumstances he now lives under the same roof as her and her grandma. Now he continues his journey while remaining undercover. But what is he supposed read more

It's really good, the story have that typical demon and angel or human and demon fell in love but their family or clan won't allow them too because of responsibilities blah blah blah, I tough I won't like it to be honest but the reviews got me and I ended up reading it.

The first chapter can get a bit confusing because of how things are happening so fast but as you go read further like just few more chapters you can understand it, actually it depends to the person. As I read further I loved the characters more and more and I got more read more

I must say i loved this manga, with only 5 chapters (atm) it already convinced me!

Characters 10/10:

"An easygoing-very-long wolf-clan-head Guy and uhm a super-justice-kinda-angel Girl"
Man, i hafto say that these characters are original,... well especially the super justice angel,
But about the main: Hana's looks are cute in its way, her hair is short, i, at first disliked that it was THAT short, but i gradually came to like it.. also i think the mangaka made her hair a bit more puffy, so yay~ Ahum, so the guy, Jirou, kinda a read more

I really enjoy this!!
I fell in love with this manga right away from the very first chapter! The art is really nice, the characters are well shaped and the plot is just beautiful!! It's not that sad but somehow it really give me the "feels".. Too bad that the English translations is really slow.. But I'm sure you won't regret to read this if you like a very slow going romance.. ^_^
I really love a romance story that involved royalty and this one is no exception! Koujiro is a really good type of prince too! I love Hana's personality at the begginer arc but I read more
