Sakura is a princess who lives alone with a few maids in a mansion deep in the mountains. She's been engaged to the prince of the country since she was born. She doesn't like that fact, as she wants to decide her fate on her own. However, one day, a messenger from the prince suddenly came to take her to the capital…
Another great installment by Arina Tanemura, Sakura Hime Kaden is a fantasy shoujo manga that may seem typical at first, but once you continue reading you'll find it actually has a lot of twists. Although the main character, Sakura, is a bit cliché, this manga is unique in other aspects such as the storyline and the other supporting characters. Personally, I believe that Shinshi Doumei Cross beats this one out but honestly it may be too early to tell because as of now the manga isn't very far in terms of the number of chapters. However, if you're a fan of any of Arina Tanemura's other mangas, you won't be disappointed with this one.
Story: Although I'm not a big fan of fantasy manga, the storyline is actually pretty decent. It may not be the most original synopsis ever, but the plot is full of twists that you wouldn't expect. 7/10
Art: The art is amazing. Detailed and unique, Arina Tanemura has a great drawing style that I personally really enjoy. 10/10
Characters: The only character that I find a bit normal and boring is Sakura herself. Determined, strong willed, yet kind, she's pretty much like all Arina Tanemura heroines. Other characters, however, such as Aoba, Kohaku, Hayate, make the story more interesting and make up for that. I look forward to seeing them develop. 7/10
Enjoyment: As I mentioned before, if you're an Arina Tanemura fan chances are you'll like this manga. Although it isn't her best, it's still worth a read. From the very first chapter it's already full of suspense. 8/10
Overall: I suggest you give this manga a try. Although it may not be the best or most memorable manga ever, it's a fun read, just like any other Arina manga. 7/10read more
When i first came across this manga i wasent expecting much because there are so many shoujo/romance/fantasy mangas that i had just about run out of patience but i was wrong this manga is outstanding. When you first begin to read it you really fall inlove with the characters and get a pretty good understanding of who they are and what there goal is but suddenly the manga takes a sharp turn and then the characters you once thought you knew begin to change and their real personalitys come out making the manga amazing and unpredictable and though the fantasy plays a large roll in this manga it also has a large amount of romance and comedy that makes the manga fun to read but it also makes it so good that you dont wanna stop reading it i reccomend this manga to any romance fans out there even if your not into manga.
Thanks and hope you enjoy this wonderful manga series Sakura-Hime kaden!read more
Another great manga composed by the awesome author of arina tanemura. seriously i'm a total fan of hers, i just can't get enough with her manga stories and art. Truly, i really hoped for a historical manga from a great mangaka and now i've got it. Recently i was really into a manga that was historical or more so mythological? but its not complete so to satisfy my thirst for that type of great manga, i found this very entertaining. I always love the romance in Arina's mangas, it just makes me blush and my heart beat hard. Its soooooooooo cute
i may have not finshed the book but overall it is awesome :D some of the character ideas look like there from some of arina tanemura's other manga like aoba looks like takuto and the old lady (i forgot her name) looks like a old short version of haine :D you'll notice what i mean when u read it :3
