Preliminary (10/74 eps)
The story of a prince out of touch with how to have normal human interaction tries to date a regular common girl.

This manga does manage to feel different from many shoujo manga in that it (intentionally for stylistic reasons) chose a rather off kilter setting, that is not supposed to be a fantasy setting, and yet at the same time, does not resemble real life either. It's this supposed to be Japan? Europe? I honestly have no idea.

The part that's disappointing to me is that while it feels like it has potential, it never feels like it manages to get off the ground. It ...
