From ShoujoMagic:

For heroine Ooba Kanoko, life isn't much fun. Her family runs a small restaurant, where she slaves and is horribly mistreated by her two sisters, parents, and grandfather. (Not to mention the fact that her name said aloud as "Oobaka no ko" = "stupid kid"!) Poor Kanoko cooks, cleans, and takes the blame when things go wrong. However, her life takes an unusual turn when her family suddenly loses what little money they had, and everything they own is about to be repossessed -- along comes a ragged looking, tall stranger with an interesting proposition that will turn Kanoko into a billion dollar Cinderella! At a price to Kanoko...

This is your normal shoujo but a good light reading. The only thing to say: how can something go on for 10 volumes and all of a sudden stop with no closure at all. Respect to readers is something that some printing companies/mangaka have to learn! sad

On Hiatus!!

Urgh! Was wondering how she was going to tie everything up in a single volume and then I reached the end!!! After all that is happening in the story, it ends on a proportional cliffhanger. Hiatus!, with no definite hope of the series continuing! I'm ticked.
NOT recommended UNTIL it's COMPLETED. Afterwards, have at it. It's a good story with likeable characters. A high point is how all the characters have their own unique personalites; not carbon copies of each other.
If you read it, be prepared for no endings on any front.

I read the summary for this, and i was like "OooH, sounds interesting!!" but when i actually start reading the manga...what a DISAPPOINTMENT! i dragged myself to finish vol.1, and heading on to vol. 2 in hopes that it would get better, but noooo. the story is pretty basic in my opinion (very much like 100% Perfect Girl and Haou Airen) and not only that...i found the artwork dang annoying! the girl looks so BLAGH...everytime i see her sorry face, i just wanna punch her (of course i restrain since i don't wanna break my mon)...but anyway, the guy married that kinda girl for a billion? he must be cuckoo in the head man.

So i just started reading volume 6 and the plot line is getting WAY OVER DRAMATIC AND CLICHE its tiring. Yes, its interesting but i why did you have to make the mistress, the wife's twin sisterconfused Man that is just cold!!! Plus it is modern times, slap your sister, spit in your husband's face, and just walk away! Sheesh I hate it when weak females go, what will i do, i cannot do anything but accept his order...UGH ANNOYING!!!! BTW that is how all the female seems in this manga that what killed it for me. Also I agree that the art kinda blows....

I oddly liked it, the plot line reminded me of the old bearskin fairytale, where the Devil forces a man to wear a bearskin and never shave/clean himself in exchange for all the money he wants. The man saves another and is promised the bride of one of the mans daughters. The girls think bearskin is ugly and force him onto the youngest daughter. Its nice to see something other then cinderella. I feel the art was good, better then most atleast.

It's not that good. The plot is old and boring and without the support of the drawing (hey Sakai, your drawing sucks) no doubt it's never stood out, lol .

Its true that the story and characters are that of a generic shoujo manga. However, in my opinion it all fits well together in a way that it rarely does with stereotypical manga. Overall it makes for a great read.
