Far from the company of humans, she is raised as one of the Dokebi, a magical race from Korean myth. Among them she is happy and content, until one day she loses the trust of her protector, causing the enchantment that had kept the secret of her true identity to be broken. She is cast out to the world of her birth and must find her place among her own kind.
(the following tekst may contain spoilers) Our heroine, Misty-rain, is abandoned in the human world, and picked op by a witch, and brought to the land of darkness, with the race of two-horneds dokebi (a mythical race of Korea). Here she grows up with a little trouble but still happy. after 12 years, she lost the trust of her protector, the great king of darkness, and is revealed that she isn't a dokebi, but a human. When she's in prinsion, she meets prince Sirius (the one, together with her always foe thornpricker, who made her lost the trust of her protecter) Prince Sirius feels quilty and starts to help her, but he falls in love with her. But 'cause Misty-rain isn't a dokebi, she is banned from the land of darkness back to the human world, who once abandoned her, there, she must seen to survive.
The story is a good story, and uses sometimes western fairytailes and greece mythologic to give a little special to it. It's a good story overall, and its gets an 9, its pretty original, but not that original, so no 10. The story has a good devolopment, at a good peace, but it could be a little faster, the way of telling is good done either. The way they brought it is good understandeble.
It has a good art, and its clear who's who. sometimes I have I mistake characters 'cause they look so much like eachother, here they have good their own face and character. Males and females are good drawn either, and the background are much detailed and well done. overall its a really nice art. but sometimes its to less detailed and its sometimes to unclear. so an overall of a big 9.
Whe have a strong heroine with a strong character. in the begin she has a lovely character, evil to her always enemy thornpricker, but always want a nice family, and want to have friends and peace. she hates humans (till she loses her memory) and always want to be a dokebi, even though she knows she is human (till she loses her memory) the second main character Sirius is a nice, who's head over heels for Misty-rain, is someone who knows what he does, and never gives misty-rain up, and still wants to sacrefice himself for misty-rain, who became quite cold after she lost her memory, he is nice, good, and sometimes anoying, but yeah, who isn't? And a big sub-role is Thornpricker, the always foe of Misty-rain, what she does is understable, and sometimes anoying, but whe must have an evil character in this story right? A story isn't fun if everyone frolic happily, hands in hands, in the fields right? and the other characters are well done to. so overall the characters deserve a little 10!
It gives me sometimes a good laugh, and it enjoyed me really, I read all the seven volumes in one day, And I really liked it, the combination with western tales, greece mytologic and the korean culture gives a good balanc between a sirieus story and a fun story together. its definitelly a story you have to read once,
I thought the story was quite typical, and even worse than that, the characters were very annoying. I was expecting more when I read the back about the mangaka trying to create a classic romance story. It wasn't at all a classic.
The manga was difficult to read with Misty-Rain, the protagonist, doing something stupid ALL the time. There were little problems that would be made so big that it would take quite a while to solve them. The drawings were just okay, I didn't like the way they were drawn. Even when you see the cover of an older woman with a man, Mistry-Rain, the main character, is actually a child.
Overall, I found that this manga was a waste of my time and I would not recommend it to anyone. read more
I love the first book of the series, a baby abandoned in a cabbage patch and taken in by magical beings called dokebi's sounds really great, the first book shows her life living among them and thinking she was one. When her human characteristics start to come out the king of the Dokebi take her to the human world, in which I believe the series goes downhill. Misty rain seems like moody selfish and dingy at times. From her going to school and living with some strange boys it is a generic manga then, with cliche things happening. I believe this could have been a great manga with a good idea just took in the wrong direction.read more
