Easy-read, may have some plot twists (?)

It's hard to tell how far a manga can go just by reading 2 chapters (excluding a prologue) but I love it already because of how easy-going the heroine is, and how atypical she is compared to other shoujo heroines.

Don't be expecting a sappy shoujo story or anything that you've read so far. The heroine is not someone who cares much about romance, and actually has a HEAD on her shoulders where she sensibly thinks of others and herself before silly love matters.

I really like this manga, and I think it has a lot of potential. A bit curious on what happens next - can't wait for future chapters! smile

A Little Twist on the Typical

The characters and art are what carry this one. The heroine is definitely the odd sort in this manga--and I like it. She's similar in some ways to the typical shoujo ditz in that she's persistently optimistic and naive--but she's not optimistic in the way that most are. Instead of being like: "I'm suffering but I'm going to make the best of it!" She's more like: "Such terribly dramatic things are happening to me, I love it!" She's a fan of the horrific and dark because she's obviously a horror novel bookworm, and her practical obsession with how much everything costs while gleefully accepting things that would shock or bother any normal person is kind of funny. As for the romantic interest(s?), the male lead is gorgeously drawn and kind of interesting in his own way. They make a good couple. The other characters are all very likeable, even if they turn out to be the bad guy. Or become the good guy. Or both. The whole thing has a bit of a mysterious beauty and the beast sort of feel to it (er, kind of?) but keeps it playful with all the characters' antics. Overall a fun read and the plot wasn't bad either.

Interesting & Just Plain Awesome Characters xD

In all honesty, I read this manga with the expectation it's going to be like "those mangas", but somehow I forced myself to read at least a little bit since:
1) I was curious, and
2) I just wanted to get over the manga and x the tab out.

.. Well, wasn't I smacked really hard across the face?

In the end, I was DREADING the ending coming closer!! (There's only about 5 chapters uploaded so far D': ...). It's not only humorous, but the heroine is clever, and although she may be naive and a tad ditsy, I can't hate her like the other shojou heroines like that. She doesn't cry and spend hours thinking about how sexy her new husband looks, and feeling all insecure and mopey instead of actually working hard. She just... acts like herself. She doesn't blush like that, or even show any obvious dislike to the marriage. It's just... ack!

I don't know! DX

I mean, the mangaka just created her so darn well, that she has this likeable personality which I just can't hate! The same with the main guy- sure, he's done some pretty terrible actions, but he hadn't exactly to the main character herself- he didn't rape her or molest her or continuously reprimand her or whatnot. He treats her like how he would really treat anyone, but her blunt, honest, and straightforward yeah-the-heck-with-it-oh-well-I-actually-love-how-this-arrangement-is-so-far freaking AWESOME personality does interest him, and thus he treats her a little bit more kinder than others.

The drawings amazing, as along with the story, and it's one of those mangas which never update fast enough but I'm just dying for them too!!! biggrin

Yes, the historical tab might throw you off, but trust me- coming from me who doesn't really enjoy history, (or historical manga for that matter), I thought that it was pretty good. It wasn't too over the edge and dead boring, but it was enough so it didn't just seem like some kind of half-assed slapstick comedy. I really think you should check it out! smile

It's a very unique manga. First of all, I've never come across a character such as Alicia and I feel that her personality fit very well with Licen. The plot wasn't super amazing but it was interesting enough to make me read to the end. The romance isn't sappy or corny or cliche at all, it was also unique and wasn't rushed or anything. Their relationship is very odd but weirdly lovable and cute.
I know i've repeated this many times but overall it's just a very DIFFERENT manga. give it a try!

I love these types of stories. There's the promise of romance, a nice protagonist I'm glad the story is following, cool characters.

I really am happy this is being scanlated quite often<33

I really liked (most of) the characters and the plot was beautiful along with the art. I just really hated Nora's guts though... -__- Still can't get over the fact that Kashburn is still going to keep her as a his (supposed) lover even though he and Alicia have already fallen in love and gotten married. Not the mention the fact that Nora is a complete witch and keeps tricking Alicia to her death....
But overall, this was an excellent manga and I am going to continue on by reading the new sequel that's been released! I hope everyone else also does so! It's called Shinigamihime no Saikon: Baraen no Tokei Koushaku. Enjoy your reading smile

I really love the main character!! Her personality was superb(what I was looking for) and I think it'll be her personality that bring the male lead closer to her. Anticipating the progress!

If you love a concise, well-executed storyline that isn't overly complicated, or cute, non-cliche characters, read this. Alicia is adorable. Her situation is set up for her to just watch and stand by, but she's got her own will too. It's one of the most unique ways I've seen her character type used. The other characters have distinct personalities as well. The novel it was based off of was obviously very good, and the artist really captured the mood.
Good stuff.

I don't understand why some people think the protag is annoying - She's ditzy, a little bit airheaded, but she has her feet on the ground and knows where the limits are, and apologizes when she crosses them. She's a realistic with an imagination and isn't focused on stuff like "oh no hes no talks to me he hates me wah i love him all of a sudden", nah, she does her own thing. The development with the love interest is subtle, but it's there and strong, extremely from his side. There's also some comedic value in this. The main guy isn't angsty or broody with a stick up his butt when the heroine does something he doesn't like (she took her chances but felt bad about it), so that was a plus. There wasn't anything needlessly dramatic about anything, except for the whole "princess of death" title she was given.

As for the plot, some twists there, but it's more towards the end. Enjoyable

The art is great, the execution is great, I just only wish it was longer! Off to the sequel smile

It was a pretty good read - something to save for when you're bored and have nothing else to do.

Pros :
1. Hot guys
2. Suprises you
3. Art work was good

Cons :
1. Heroine is a little too dim-witted
2. A lot of back-stabbing
3. Personally, I didn't like how the story went, but it wasn't like something drastic happened that made me feel that way. I just would have done it differently.

I LOVED Ruark. He was soooo adorable.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He had me there at the end of the last couple chapters. Totally wasn't expecting that priest-guy either.
