I was tempted by the plot of forbidden love, as those always seem to be decent reads. But despite its alluring prelude of the two main characters kissing under a cherry blossom tree when they have never met before, attracted to each other "at first sight", the romance gets rather weak as it started too early and focuses mostly on whether they will "do" it or not for two of the three volumes.
The art, despite the annoying ubiquity of the big eyes, is rather decent and does not intrude in the already staggering plot in a large amount. It is clear and focused and author read more

I picked this manga randomly (real meaning: I saw the review on the front page and entered. It became one of my beloved habits). This is the main result, I guess.

After reading the summary for the first time, I thought about two things. First, this story has to be dark or at least very deep. Second, the plot may be slower than it's seemed to be.
I was wrong,
So wrong.
'Ai Hime' turns the forbidden love story between an uncle and a niece quickly into a light, heart-warming shojo manga. It would be even plainer, if the age different issue didn't appear. However, read more

For the most part, I was rather disbelieving when I heard some people claim that after reading so much manga, this still remained on their favorites list. Seriously-- thirteen chapters?

But I decided to give it a try. ...and almost dropped it.

You see, the first two chapters, I felt, had the romance going at breakneck speed. It was so sudden I seemed to be rolling my eyes at it already.

However, beyond that, Ai Hime's pace was pretty good, considering the bounds of -thirteen- chapters. It was enough to show the development of feelings, especially the girl's (Mao) without letting too much dead air hang around. read more

This manga is perhaps one of my favourite shoujo mangas of all times. It starts out as a classic boy meets girl. The female and male main characters meet for the first time beneath a sakura tree... surely fated to never meet again. And then of course, they meet again! The female protagonist finds out, that in fact, the boy she kissed is her "uncle" (not blood-related though), and she would be his "niece" and her parents ask her "uncle" to take care of her while they're away. Before I say anymore about this manga, you should know a couple things:

-The age difference between the read more
