TLDR: Very enjoyable first chapters that made me wanna read more but once I reached the second volume, I found myself skipping through most of the pages. Romance feels very forced and unnatural. Also very political which might be interesting for some people. Sadly, I only enjoyed one or two characters of the main cast. Art is very beautiful and typical for a shoujo manga.
More in detail
The plot was a bit too messy for me. Maybe because I went in expecting something a bit more... tragedy-like. At least that's what the text on the back of my volumes hinted at, so perhaps that's why I'm
so disappointed now. There are lots of attempts to build a universe within the manga and I think it worked pretty well. The plot felt pretty boring to me, but maybe that's because I'm not that interested in the politics of a fictional world.
Very, very, very beautiful and delicate. It fits the manga really well and the covers are beyond stunning. You can tell how much care and love the author used to draw this manga.
I really loved the female MC and her family, as well as some servants, but most of them were very forgettable and not very enjoyable. I especially don't like the main love interest, which is kinda unfortunate in a love story. They'll probably get more backstory as the chapters go on but I honestly am not interested in finding out more about most of them.
Enjoyed the beginning a lot, then quickly lost interest and motivation to keep reading. I think I just expected the wrong thing, thus not enjoying the more political parts. And again, the romance didn't feel very believable to me which is one of the most important things in a romance manga. Also the comedy elements in the manga were pretty cliché, sadly.
