A volume composed of three one-shots by Kaneyoshi Izumi sensei.
1. Ni no Hime no Monogatari
A prequel to Joou no Hana, it tells the love story between the legendary premier of Kou, Seisui, and the second princess of Kou, Ninohime, briefly alluded to in the manga. Very similar in style to its sequel, the difference in the character's personalities is refreshing and pure. By leagues and miles this is the best one shot of the tokuban and worth a read if you enjoyed Joou no Hana.
3.5/5 would recommend to fans of Joou no Hana and to other readers
2. Circuit no Joousama
A terribly told story of
karma and catharsis, it follows Ei through her rise and fall as a Race Queen (whatever that is? and is poorly portrayed/explained) and the romance that is tacked on as an accessory to the story. The characters are one-dimensional, predictable, and wholly unrelatable. There's no character development. I'm honestly hard-pressed to find a manga as horrible as this one-shot.
0/5 a waste of my time
3. Chijou 20m de Aimashou
So badly written I don't even want to write this review.
0/5 As horrible as Circuit no Joousama
