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!
