Hanada (Manga) add (All reviews)
So a beautiful "rich princess" type transfers to a new school. She hopes to find her prince, and finds a princely type and a sporty/goofy/friendly type, and as much as she thinks she wants the princely type, she has been forced into a betrothal with the friendly type boy. Overall, the story kept my interest because it was just one big ride of humor mixed in with some romance.

Based on that, I should address that all characters tend to be tropes. You got the rich princess heroine, the friendly goof love interest, the princely alternate "love interest," the girl that won't give up, and the read more

You might not think that such a large, awkward age gap manga isn't for you just like I did, but I think you'd like to know that I was sorely mistaken. It's about two people forced into a marriage, one with stronger feelings about it all than the other, and how their very different background and personalities work together and make their new life together work.

The fact that Fuuma is ten is always in the back of my mind, but the fact that by halfway through this manga the reader tends to push that aside and focus on the character development and story tells me read more

A wonderful read!

Besides my own minor problems with the art style, it's unique in its own way, and the artist actually changes the style of faces slightly to depict age, despite it only being about 5 years (age 19 from about 24.) That's a new one in the repertoire, I really appreciated it.

Characters are believable, and the mangaka always knows when to apply comedic relief despite any serious occasion, and that really makes the story and develops the personalities of some of the characters.

The story flow also manages the predictability of the story, or should I say, "unpredictability." The reader will never know the read more

If you're looking for a serious romance, keep looking.

I expected a serious and predictable story from the start, but was taken for surprise when it was far from it, so if you're up for twists, this is your story.

The art is enjoyable and appropriate for most scenes, and the storyline is pure comedy with some disturbing implications. The story doesn't revolve around romance, for the most part, but intertwines the basics of attraction and lust with comedy and other interesting elements the mangaka has come up with.

The characters are a pleasant jumble too, giving you mixed feelings for everyone. Everyone has a major flaw that read more

I have mixed feelings about this.

The art is absolutely wonderful. It reminds me of other artists at some points, yet has it's own original and unique style. Some characters' appearances, however, can be quite confusing for those who don't pay attention.

The character personalities, however, are well done for those who are brought into depth. The villain believable, blinded by his goals to remember other things. The heroine is strong and confidant, and the leading male is comedic relief with a deeper, darker side. The other characters are just made out to look cool and don't seem to have much of a purpose in the read more
