From Aerandria Scans:
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.

Art is top-notch, everyone said so.

What everyone failed to praise to high heaven is other factors of this manga: Storyline, character development and tiny details.

Dont get discouraged from the first 2 chapters. Those are a bit "hit on the face" style. The later chapters developed much nicely, they always made me wonder what the "Snow White" chapter is all about.

Ludwig Kakumei is one of my favourite mangas by Kaori Yuki. As for the genres, it's a very complex manga: mixture of comedy, horror, drama and fantasy in Grimm style. The stories are sometimes gross but there's a source of humor in every chapter and the drawing style is awesome as expected from Kaori Yuki. As for the ending, I'm very curious because I doubt that there's a girl in the world of the tales who is much to Ludwig's taste and neither an evil person nor an idiot.

Don't be mistaken by the category. Though there are some gory scenes, it isn't much of a 'horror' if you ask me. 'Mystery' is well fitted though.

I was moved by the story of Princess Maileen, and how she died because she was serious about a prince that was using her. How every time a traveler walks by the tower, she kept hoping that it's the prince coming to save her.

It's good, but isn't the best. I attempted to read this before, but always stop when I finish the THIRD PAGE (not third chapter, people ;D). But I gave it a chance yesterday (late at night), and I'm glad I did.

Kaori Yuki, even with lighthearted series such as this one, can spin it into a brilliant story, worth reading. The art is as always top notch. And it adds an interesting twirl to typical fairy tales. Good job as always, Kaori Yuki.

This story is defiantly a thriller! I love how it's such a mix with fairytales and I love Prince Ludwig and his personality! The story is very detailed in it's thoughts too. It's packed with horror, fantasy, romance, and is sooooo funny! Love the comedy in it. It's an excellent way to the see prince find his girl throughout all of them smile

I apologize but I can't help but find the comment below mine rather ..unnecessary.

Anyhow, moving on, I highly recommend this piece! It's one of Kaori Yuki's most lighthearted works I've ever encountered. A nice approach to something a little more different from her usual darker works. This series begins rather caliginously and grows into something, well, I could say.. cute, even! Comidical actually. However, despite the more brightened atmosphere, each arc still ends with some lingering eeriness.. which I personally find very intriguing.

And as always, once again has a Kaori Yuki masterpiece leave a lingering sentiment in me.
