This review mostly contains how I felt while reading this manga. I didn't write much about what the stories are about since there isn't really that much to tell coz all of them are one shots. Haha.
First Story: The Lie Becomes Love Under the Moon
Lame. The story was a collection of puking trigger lame dialogues. I mean c'mon when the main guy introduced himself it was something like "I am Shade Avantine, I am the fearsome alchemist you vampires call the demon Earl of Garland" I was like, uhmmm dude, you being fearsome instantly vanished the moment you said you're fearsome. Heaven's bells! No fearsome character would say I am the fearsome blabla it's so lame. And don't even get me started with the heroine. A super naive bordering on being so stupid kinda personality. There is a fine line between a character who believes in the goodness of people and someone who is just plain stupid you can trick her into killing herself. I'm not even sure why the title is that coz huh? I don't know where the title is in anyway reflected in the story. Plot wise I don't like anything about the first story but the art is great so there's that.
Second Story: The Bride and the Prince
The second story is connected to the first but unlike the first story which almost made me wanna kill someone, this one is so cute! I like it! It's simple and not really that great yes, but Prince Arnaud and Princess Cristina are just so cute. The plot was average but everything is just so much better than the first. Prince Arnaud (the first story heroine's younger brother) is charming and Princess Cristina is so likeable! I know that this is a one shot story so falling in love with each other should be fast paced but unlike the first one which happened in a very lameass way this one is enough to not raise my brow. Haha.
Third Story: The Beautiful Lady and the Vampire
As all stories are connected from different timelines, this one happens a few generations after the first and second story. Princess Josette, a quarter of a vampire is the grand daughter of the second story protagonists Prince Arnaud and Princess Cristina. Josette or Josie for short wants to marry for love and have a love story same as her grand parents which found love with each other. As she searches for her love she stumbled upon a girl named Stella and everything follows after that. Haha. See? I cannot even write the plot coz it will reveal the whole story. Nevertheless it is not a yuri or shoujo ai story so you can guess now that Stella turns out to be a guy named Eric and of course in the end as everything in this whole series ends, they end up together. The story is okay and Josette is likeable and not at all annoying.
I blame that all the stories in here are formatted as one shots MAYBE that is why there's very limited story the mangaka can write. But huhu I know it is not an excuse. One shot stories can be better than this! Nevertheless it did not annoy the crap out of me (except for the first one) so I guess all in all I can say that I recommend it to anyone who just wants to pass the time and besides the art is great. Just a little warning: DO NOT EXPECT MUCH. It's okay I'll give you that but it is not something I'm gonna crave and read again like ever. It is just a one shot for just a one time read. read more
