In return for a business loan of 50 million yen, the prestigious Kamiya family gave their daughter Haine away to the Otomiya family. Haine, now an Otomiya, is appointed to the student council of the exclusive Imperial Academy, a private school for the aristocracy. Even though Haine is of proper lineage to be on the council, she finds herself struggling to find her place among the many secrets of its elite members, especially those of the president who holds her heart--Shizumasa Togu, aka "the Emperor".

I loved this series~!

I thought the story was fairly original. It captured my attention because it was realistic. I could actually see how most of things would work in real life. The plot-line was intruiging and it wasn't really predictable. Some parts of it we're kind of cliché and predictable but most of it wasn't.

I love all of Arina Tanemura's art. Her art 's really detailed. You could see how all the folds in the clothes are realistic and I love the way she draws her eyes. The clothes are very pretty too!

The characters were interesting. Although it was kind of wierd with Maora and read more

The story focuses on Haine Otomiya and Shizumasa Togu's relationship, but Tanemura also takes time to explain the other characters' stories as well. As in Full Moon, there were some pretty surprising twists and turns which make the story very interesting. The ending... was cliché Arina Tanemura, and was the only part I didn't like about the story. But when I think about it, there really isn't any other way it could have ended. All of the characters have interesting pasts, and the overall story is pretty enjoyable.

Art--As usual, Arina Tanemura's art is superb. I love the way she draws hair and clothes. Her drawings read more

EDIT - 12.29.08

After I had read the manga again, I can say clearly- I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong, I still love the manga but I was too overreacting.

The story is very unique and everything, but when I read the first volumes again I simply got bored. Only the arc in volumes 7-9, with Kazuhito, were awesome (or maybe that's because he's my favourite character in the manga?). The first ones were just school stuff and were... BORING.
The art was amazing as I remembered, but like the first reading, I couldn't stand Haine. She was so stupid, I wanted to hit read more

I just finished reading this and I am hooked. Well, it's not often I stumble upon great shoujo manga and I am glad this is great!
The story is about Haine Otomiya, an ex yakuza who falls in love with Shizumasa Touguu, a koutei (emperor) or prez of her school's student council. She has fallen for him since she was 10 and when he came to her rescue one snowy night, the feelings are reignited!
However, Shizumasa wears a stern face and refuses to accomodate her. However, Haine is tricked by her friends and she becomes member of students council with the task of being Shizumasa's read more
