It looks like your standard sappy romance manga but it's not!

I don't write a lot of reviews but I think it's a shame that this great manga has such a low score. I think that is largely due to misunderstanding the story and the characters.

Hakushaku to Yousei tells the story of a fairy doctor (a person who can see and communicate with fairies) and a man searching for a fairy-related treasure. The story is original and well told. The plot is character driven - not romance driven. So, even though there are romantic elements, your attention will always be drawn to whatever read more

- This story confused me greatly at 1st. I tend not to read the smaller texts in the manga, but in this case, if you didn't read every little thing in the manga, you'd probably be lost. For me as a reader, I skim read. I read, but I skim at the same time. I did that with 'Wuthering Heights' and understood the series pretty well. And yet with 'Hakushaku to Yosei', I was confused at the end of the manga which I finished not too long ago (due to the fact that I read online and the updates are a bit slow read more

I picked up this manga seeing how lovely the cover art was. Plus, I could see a beautiful ship approaching with the two main characters on it, Lydia and Edgar. The title was also alluring: The Earl and the Fairy. I adore historical manga as I do historical fiction, so I was sold on the description of a Victorian romance set in 19th century England involving fairies and other mystical creatures. This manga proved to be a delightful mix of mystery, love, and fantasy.

The author sets up the story quite nicely, describing the Victorian era by clothing, setting, and speech. Right away readers can see read more

I think the most important thing anyone should know before reading this manga is that it doesn't really ends. The 4 volumes encompass 2 story arcs and even though those stories are told to completion, the main plot is never resolved.
Crucially, the romance goes nowhere. It's a real let down to read the last chapter ever published and find all those dangling plot threads.

That said, let me nitpick a little:
* The art is nice, but the artist's narrative is really confusing, specially in fight scenes. It's made worse by the classic shoujo manga gimmick of going light on backgrounds/establishing shots, so that sometimes you can read more
