Through the whole story you find yourself debating who your routing for. An incredible story of love and pain.

The story is about traained assasins by a obnoxious queen to kill neighboor countries' king just because...the queen is evil. Just that, she raise little girls to be assasins, put in danger their lives and the kingdoms because she's just a hateful bitch. Don't search realistic motivations to characters, they just doesn't exist in this manga.
The main character, Lycoris, is a extreme doormant, passive heroine. ...
