Story- This a quite original story. It shows a solid historical and cultural background by adding as two main protagonists, a french boy and a japanese girl in the Victorian Era. This is the story of Yune, a 13 year old girl who arrives in Paris in order to stay with a family as a waitress, and at the same time, to learn and study about the Occident.
Art- The art can be described as intricate and detailed in the sceneries, clothes and accessories. As for the characters, the art is very cute being the general trademark.
Character- The characters are the best in the manga:
we have a big contrast between cultures in characters while they try to adapt themselves to each other.
Yune is a delicate, polite, joyful and curious little girl who shows quite well the japanese habits while Claude, carefree, and at first, a typical individualist that later opens his heart to little Yune and both start to learn everything/understanding each other, developing an unbreakable bond.
Enjoyment- You will enjoy this manga a lot if you´re a fan of cute stories with well developed characters, accurate facts, great art.
This plot is mainly about friendship, bonds, family, affection, but you will find too some romance hints.
Overall, a great manga, with very cute moments and interesting characters.
