Ever since the day Ran Kurono's older brother was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she's a woman forever. For generations the Kurono family has served the Ohtori family as their First Knight, but 11 other lower knights with ill intentions of using the Ohtori family's authority vie for that title. Not only that, but Sei is being tested for being suitable for the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei's trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei's untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.

For some reason, no matter how long it has been, I still find myself thinking about this manga from time to time. I wasn't sure if I even liked it when I first began reading it, but, now, after ruminating on it a while, I'm tempted to add it to my favorites.

This wasn't the first manga that I read that portrayed a female character in a traditionally masculine light. It was, on the other hand, the first one that did so unapologetically. This manga knew that there was nothing wrong with her position and her mannerisms. She didn't look like a girl trying to read more

This manga pertains to the genres which I rejoice the most - gender bender + strong female lead who has to for some reason keep her identity hidden from all. The determination and the will to bear it all with a smile really exhilarates my dampen spirits. Recommended to those who cherish a female taking stand in action physically and trying to fight mentally with her hormones.
The story has an interesting plot but is predictable, and at a constant pace with not many surprises or shocks except one at the climax which can be hinted but the lead and characters keep you hooked to read more

“What do you fight for?”
For me, there are two types of manga; Ones that make you feel as if you’re part of their story, living with them, sharing their life as their shadow. Then there are others whose character’s voice is so simple, yet unique that make you forget you’re not really there and that sadly, that is not you.

Ran’s one mission in life is to become First Knight. A promise she made to herself after her brother died protecting his charge, Sei. There is nothing she wants more than to protect Sei, the future of the Ohtori family, even if it means read more

First off, This is a Shoujo manga and it much be treated as such. means kick ass protagonist, obvious plot line, simplicity, drama over drama, and a romantic note with an equally obvious pairing!
If you are not into Shoujo you most probably won't enjoy this manga.

Art: The art is very high Quality and beautiful, just a look inside the manga will give you a very good impression

Ran the protagonist is the archetype of kick ass cross dressing female characters in shoujo manga. Powerful, Beautiful, Kind, Strict, Protective, Honest to the bone, but also Soft, Elegant, Romantic and Caring. The portrayal of read more
