I really liked this collection of short stories, each of them had piece of the unexpected. Each story has a different setting.
*The first deals with a demon possessing a childhood friend.
*The next starts with an unexpected 'daughter'.
*Then there is a fantasy about a princess and a kingdom protected by a god.
In the last a rich young girl who's father is trying to make her marry and she runs away.

Art style-wise, Akuma no Puzzle is nothing groundbreaking. The characters are drawn well enough to be likable.

Characterization-wise, I like how the mangaka developed the characters. The women aren't badasses, but they're not helpless, crybaby wimps either. They're even fairly entertaining, even at the height of their mandatory naivete.

Lastly, I must especially mention the male lead in the fourth oneshot (July Bride's Yuu, who's just the epitome of coolness), read more
