A dancer traveling with a mysterious companion is in search of a demon who lent her his heart when she was a baby. In exchange (for lending his heart), he will devour her when she turns sixteen. She hopes to find him before the time comes to ask if he could lengthen her life. The premise of this manga draws you in initially through its engaging first chapter, after that, however, it gets repetitive and tiresome to read.

The tediousness of her journey gets on your nerves as her adventure does not go beyond performing in front of one bishounen after another. Not that I could have anything against bishies, but it wouldn’t have been so bad if they didn’t have almost zero personalities. Unfortunately, the author just threw several insignificant, two-dimensional, generic characters in to stretch the story. For one to rely heavily on the encounters between utterly dull characters is a bad idea.

The only interesting character in this manga is Siva. But even his mysterious and initially ‘dazzling’ quality wears off as the story fails to hold your interest.

The art is the redeeming aspect of this manga. It isn’t visually stunning, but it is polished and the characters are attractively drawn.

This is a promising story that sadly does not deliver. If bishounens are all you need to stay hooked in a series, then you might actually enjoy this. However, if story matters to you, there are plenty of good romantic manga out there for you to choose from.
