A story with so much promise it fills me with regret every time I remember its beginning and rage when I remember its ending.

I really enjoyed about 90% of the story. The art is good; it never felt awkward or lacking; nor did it impress me though. The characters were strong and vibrant; they really sold the world they inhabited. As for enjoyment, if you can read the whole story, chances are that you will either love it or hate it. Its not the kind of story you can read without caring about one way or another.

It made my heart race with anxiety, anger, despair read more

Okay, let me explain my scoring.

I love the art, it's a pretty fresh take on the 'harem' genre (it's rare to find harems centered around a female character), and most of the characters are pretty interesting, even if they start off as stereotypes. It does borrow HEAVILY from Utena, however, in terms of themes, a fairytale Greek chorus, and mechanics of the game played at the school, but it does switch it up enough to not be boring. There's also comparatively less fanservice than most harem manga.

However, there's a lot of things wrong with this manga, and 99% of them have to do with read more

The story of this manga is based on "Paradise Story" which is often included in the story and well-made to cover the whole events in the story.

This manga is having a slow start and will leave you different perception more you dwell with the story. It's not a simple one but full of surprise and deep thought.

The art is greatly drawn and kept like that until the end. Characters, battles, and events are drawn nicely throughout the series.

Throughout the story, I don't like how they abuse the girls in the story, making my enjoyment so low but more you know story, this story read more

Story (3): It has a somewhat good premise going on, but it reminds me to much of other mangas like Soul Eater with the girls turning into weapons and the masters being the boys. It's a girl battling against sexism and bias in a school where girls are seen as nothing as tools, sounds like some feminist ideology to be honest, and that's not why I'm giving it such a low score. I did like what the first few chapters told, but as soon as it kept going, it got confusing, dull, a chore to read through and the ending just leaves us with too read more
