Volume 5: Sinful Love: Your Future is Mine
Private Prince is a typical romance manga, sprinkled with timely comedic situations...
The story involves a prince (Will) transferring to a university in japan and a girl (Miyako) who has a dream of becoming a historian (actually it is rather an obsession!). Miyako is desperate, as her thesis involves the late princess of Etolia but she hadn't even started work due to lack of raw data. Fortunately Will happens to be the grand child of her, she goes to meet him but finds out that Will has a fetish for big boobs rather (she has rather big ones) and then he sets forth a
condition which sets the life of Miyako to take a turn for the better and maybe for the worst.
The story has a good pace and one never gets annoyed as it progresses. There are no fillers which makes it a very good read. The hesitation of Miyako and the aggression of Will set forth many troublesome situations and also many romantic encounters including sex which are beautifully expressed and make an emotional impact on ones heart.
The art is outstanding and really delves the reader into the story of the manga. As private prince is a romantic one, the emotional scenes should be the focus, and they are fabulously rendered and drawn, drawing out the expressions of both the protagonists in a lovey manner. It is so captivating that I even resorted to my room, the whole 8 hrs I continuously red it.
The main protagonists, Will and Miyako are the focus of the story and thus are wonderfully explained with their backgrounds and grown with care. The experiences of Miyako as she falls in love with Will, makes her more confident and the slowly maturing Will makes a really good combination. Apart from them, the supporting cast is also given a healthy dose of attention and their life affairs and their relationships are all given appropriate time. Which also impact on the protagonists' lives and thus make the experience even more richer.
The enjoyment factor is really the best part of the story. The deep story, excellent artwork and great characters bring about a real delightful experience. One can never get bored by the frequent troubles faced by the couple (rather by Miyako), the usual surrenders by Miyako due to her inferiority complex against the world of Will and then the encouraging Will who always gives her the confidence to make her able to stand by his side, really captivates the reader and even after the satisfying ending, one really is left for more of the same!
Overall it is a must read for romance genre fans, I highly recommend it!
The story is really great. Despite of containing all the motifs we are used to (affair with another lady which is fake, family problems, the characters ending up in stupid situations because instead of talking to each other they have sex ;-) it is ok. Mainly because of the setting - royal family, prince charming and an average girl.
EM has a cute and very precise style of her own; one may love it, the other hate it. I'm definitely in the first group. It's a tenner because of the fact that finally the characters don't look as in every other manga drawn by
They're cute, well drawn but sadly cliche. the girl is shy, clumsy and inexperienced and never ever does she think twice before getting into another fishy situation. the guy is perverted, good-looking and mean, but as the action develops we discover (suprise suprise) that he is in fact kind-hearted and a cool bishie.
definitely fun to read. not too long. has a positive ending :-)
I recommend this to josei lovers, it's labelled shoujo but it has some josei in it:)
Highly enjoyable and fun read. We do see some pretty predictable scenarios but nothing goes stale. The story moves along quite nicely and doesn't dwell too long on character inadequacies.
The art was great. The Prince reminds me of Tamaki from Ouran and our main girl, who is supposed to have a F-cup bra wasn't drawn to look like that. Her proportions fit. Can you imagine drawing F-cups? They'd take up the whole page! I did think there would be more smut but the sex scenes were tastefully presented.
What seemed at first to be a typical smut manga, where the seductive male lead seduces the female, turned out differently than I expected.
Private Prince focuses more on the troubles that Prince Wilfred and Miyako have to overcome before they can both truly love each other. It is deeper than most romance manga plots and had me hooked throughout the entire read. Expect a lot of drama while reading Private Prince.
Well, the art is pretty well done, but isn't too distinctive. It does get the job done though and the characters sometimes look pretty well done.
Private Prince revolves around the characters Miyako and Prince
Wilfred. Both characters are well fleshed out and are three diminsional.
Overall, Private Prince is a great manga, not the best, but nevertheless a good read.
