Hayame Katsuragi has never been afraid to call out the wrongdoing of others. If she sees someone being mistreated, she will intervene instead of feigning ignorance. Up until now, this way of doing things has never backfired on her. But when she confronts her cheating husband Masahiro about his affair, he does not beg for forgiveness like she thought he would—rather, he asks for a divorce.

Furious, Hayame leaves home with a single suitcase of her belongings. Carelessness leads to her being robbed and having to camp in a local park. There, she is pestered daily by a high school student she had previously witnessed bullying others. The apparently wealthy Issei Kataoka seems to take pleasure from making fools of people who covet his riches. After she refuses his money, Issei offers Hayame something even more valuable given her current situation: if she plays along with his games, at the cost of her pride, then she can live under his roof free of charge.

Promise Cinderella handles a sus age gap with grace. The couple have a ten year age difference, but they don’t really act on their feelings until the ML, Issei, turns 18.

That being said it is a slow burn romance and you might feel frustrated how they are beating around the bush but in this context it works so well!

The first few chapters might feel a bit rough to get through, since Issei is a MAJOR arsehole in the beginning. If you manage ...

An age gap comedy romance drama with a lot going on! FL is fun and refreshing; she's 27 years old with a strong sense of justice and will swing on anyone acting up. ML is 17, and a HUGE asshole in the beginning. Honestly considered dropping the series because of how awful the situation between FL and Ml was. His character development is pretty fast imo (thankfully), so it does get better. The side characters are really fun too! One big downside (other than the age gap and initial lack of chemistry) is that basically all of the arcs ...

Promise Cinderella presents an engaging yet problematic premise with its age gap romance at the forefront. The manga's strength lies in its ability to create well-rounded and relatable mature characters. Hayame Katsuragi, the 27-year-old protagonist, emerges as a resilient and courageous individual despite facing immense hardships. Her transformation from a housewife to a homeless divorcee adds depth to her character.

One of the central themes explored in Promise Cinderella revolves around individuals who have experienced failure in life and grapple with self-esteem issues, often leading to self-destructive ...
