It is said that the longer one's punctuality streak is, the better a boyfriend they will have. In accordance with this, Airi Hoshina strictly follows her routine in preparation for her dream life: to have a loving, wholesome husband and family. However, Airi's life takes a fantastical turn when a young boy appears from her hand mirror.

Named Aram Astale Ei Daemonia Eucalystia, the young prince of Astale is fleeing his kingdom to evade a magical spell. Unknowingly, his portal leads directly to Airi's hand mirror. Though he avoided the brunt of the spell, his escape did not completely save him from the magic's effects: a spell that was originally supposed to turn Aram into an old man instead ages his body to that of a 17-year-old whenever it is dark. Now, the only way to turn him back is a kiss from his beloved maiden. Busy trying to find her one true love, Airi wants nothing to do with it, but Aram insists his soulmate must be her!

Well, this is my very first review... so bear with me! So let's start!...

Story: The story in my opinion was different from the regular shoujo/fantasy/romance setups. It was captivating from beginning to end... in fact... I didn't want it to EVER end.

When you can finish up a manga or anime and have that content feeling of satisfactory closure, but yet want more... you know the author did their job.

Art: What can I say... Matsuri Hino's art is freakin' incredible. Completely beautiful, soft, magical, and SEXY! She's the true definition of a Shoujo Mangaka. If I ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm going to try and keep this sweet and simple.

Reading this story, I had no expectations. The story was alright. Knowing this was shoujo, I tried to think optimistically throughout the story and not get annoyed to a point I wanted to stop. The story was very predictable, and then again I say to myself-it's a shoujo. A 4 or 7 year old of course doesn't act as mature as Aram acted most of the time. I got confused about their ages especially. I'm going to guess that they're three years apart, even though the ages keep changing throughout the story. The only part I ...

I read a preview of this years ago when it was sent to me by Viz. Finally got around to reading the whole thing. It still wasn't very good.

I'm unsure if it's poor translation or what, but it seems like pages of story were removed in several places. Characters skip over important emotional and plot moments for no reason. For instance, after Airi nearly falls to her death off a cliff and gets rescued by Aram, after Raz is disappeared, Airi is immediately apparently over whatever happened between her and Raz, and we only learn after THAT scene is skipped straight to wherever they're staying, ...
