In this grim and realistic take on classic fairy tales, Prince Ludwig, a female corpse collector, is ordered by his father to find himself a wife more suitable than the women he often brings into the castle. Along with his servant Wilhelm, they travel across the land in search of fair maidens from classic stories in hopes of finding Ludwig a wife.

Story: Seeing as how it's based off of classic Grim fairytales, it's not the most original concept in the world. A lot of people do the whole "tale with a twist" thing, but taking it for what it is I think it does a pretty good job of changing the twist in unexpected ways. It's definitely not for you if you're looking for something terribly deep and insightful. It's a nice, light-hearted, slightly gothic (putting those "light-hearted" and "gothic" together almost sounds like an oxymoron, doesn't it?) story to be read purely for recreational purposes. Btw, the first story with Snow White shows a very read more

A re-imagination of some of the Grimm Brother's classic fairy tales.

First of all, the art is some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of encountering. The character drawings are a real pleasure for the eye, highly detailed and expressive. Her well-defined traces give a strong, attractive image of the characters, and yet still she is able to maintain a full background without it detracting from the foreground. While I am not fully familiarized with Kaori-sensei's work, I believe well enough that this form of character design, clearly one of her strong points, is also one of her weak points, as I shall attempt read more

Ludwig Revolution is amongst one of the more odd mangas I've read. I did enjoy the spin-offs of many a beloved Grimm fairytale characters (Blanche and Sleeping Beauty were particularly interesting).

The 'dashing' prince bit is amusing, and the plot twists are fun to follow. Now an amazing story, but if you have time to kill on something that's a bit of a light hearted twisted tale Ludwig's adventures isn't too bad a choice.

We all read fairy tales sometime in our life, right? However, did you ever get the thought that evil witches might have a reason for being evil or the good isn't all what the seem? In this manga, it gives a different variation of some of the most beloved fairytales in our life from Cinderella to Snow White.

Typical beginning, pretty boy must find a girlfriend, or in this case, a wife for some reason. The main character, Ludwig (Lui) must find a wife to be able to succeed his father's throne. So, he sets off with his gullible servant, Wilhelm. The two of them read more
