Koizumi Yuta is a 14-years-old boy who has quite a bit of a problem. The princess of the magical world, Lucia, has to procreate with him. That child would have the ability to engulf the entire world for 7 whole days. Mikamoto El and Kasukabe Rie are the two angels assigned to make sure that doesn't happen. Kasukabe Rie happens to be the girl he likes. Just how is he going to survive this ordeal?
This is an incredibly standard harem romcom with a tsundere as the lead. Still, while it isn't terribly unique, it was pretty good for what it was. While there isn't really much in the way of character development, and relationship development is actually pretty weak for the genre, where it does succeed is that it has a lot of interesting characters, wherein despite having so many, they all seem to work together and there's no feeling of them being underdeveloped for the most part. In terms of plot, it is underdeveloped though, in that it doesn't really go anywhere for most of the manga. Rather than an overarching narrative, it's more like a set of
loosely related episodes, and in the end while it does get a bit intense and there are cool moments, it was rushed and the way things end up is somewhat weak. Still, the individual episodes while not contributing much to an overarching narrative, did contribute to a common theme of unity between the various factions around Yuta, and it does a pretty good job of following that all the way to the end. Furthermore, these individual episodes in and of themselves were pretty amusing with some solid comedy. The art was also really good.
Prepubescent boy that enjoys scantly clad hot chicks going after a boy? This manga's for you.
Story is fairly basic but with a fresh new twist, girl forced by father to marry/copulate with a guy, girl is resistant, girl falls in love with boy. Although this is a proved true storyline with a few twists (girl is demon princess) this happens in the span of 2 chapters...
The art for this is very good, especially if you enjoyed the mangaka's previous works like KnIM or Suzuka. While reading this, I immediately discovered who the mangaka is, due to the defined artwork.
Characters are the standard set for
a harem manga, no surprises here, but it works if you enjoy the genre.
All in all this is a must read for fans of Seo Kouji, and harem fans, and I look forward to upcoming releases
8/10 so far... I think this is a fair rating of this and that the current 7.47 average is actually way too harsh. First off, the mangaka known as Seo Kouji is without a doubt my favourite of all drama writers. For me, Kimi no Iru Machi and Suzuka are the most ingenious stories I've read and I do hope this manga will also develop into something along the lines of their greatness. I would keep comparing these 3 manga however, Princess Lucia is very different. Seo Kouji has taken a risk of adding the supernatural element to his work as well as more comedy.
If it weren't for the serious nature of the art I wouldn't think it was the work of Seo Kouji.
The reason why this manga is an 8/10 is because it is an all-round very good manga. The story is very good with the romance of a devil princess and angels. The art is just as you would expect from Kouji as well as the uniqueness of the characters. The overall enjoyment and rating therefore comes to a fair and well-judged 8/10. I would recommend this manga to any lovers of supernatural harems and ecchi scenes, also lovers of romance and tsundere characters.
