Description
From Esthétique:

"I am a human, but a doll...
Feelings are not needed. Physically alive, but not mentally.
I am a painting trapped inside a rusted frame.
The cold skin of a statue.
Like a stuffed bird--
Killed and set for display.
I wonder...
I wonder, on whose display I will be placed..."

Includes extra story, The Dancing Marionette (Vol 3).

The art may be a little intimidating, but ti it none the less beautiful.
The story isn't really captivating, but the characters are well developed.
Although, this story hasn't gone very far yet, I still enjoyed the opening of this story.
I have to say though, what pulled my interest into it was the art, but I really do enjoy Kim Mi Jung's work.

When I read that discription, I imagined something completely different.
I think this is a big spoiler, so...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I though the girl hersilf was some sort of a living doll, but it was like in an episode of the anime "jing the king of bandits" where a girl was sold like a piece of art, that was in fact, painted on her body by her father..


What can I say, not a really good read..
The artwork is pretty nice, but not so fantastic either..
The idea I had in mind about this story was blown away by some other, strange story, that I did not like..
The characters were.. Really doll like, with little emotions.
It had its nice moments, but other than that- nothing special that you should waste too much tome on..

When I first read the description, I thought the girl would be a doll, but it was actually a human. I thought it would have some fantasy pretty much.

But it's just a historical drama with great atmosphere. However, it is not that innocent, I warn you.
So far is good.

The story starts off mysteriously, and it is intriguing to me.
Wonderful artwork, each page and each corner is full of
stunning detail and eye candy. Gorgeous.

I was a bit surprised towards the later chapters of volume
one. It slightly reminds me of Chobits, but the stories
are much different.

A very satisfying read for art lovers and slightly darker reads
!

Loved it! Some might not like it because of it's dark and 'mature' themes, but I thought everything was well conveyed, and well balanced! The art was awesome, very moving at times >u< The pace was good, nothing seemed particularly rushed, though by the end, you kind of notice Suzette grows really quickly.

I had a different storyline in mind when I first stumbled on the description, and thought she was a real doll or something more 'fantasy' like. Turns out she's a human, which made it more realistic.

This manga is very similar to Hana to Akuma, except darker. biggrin

This manga was really dark. Some people will think it's a bit too much and probably won't be able to take it but some may find it unique and beautiful. I thought it was in the middle. It was alright but not something i would read a second time.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I couldn't stand that after she gets raped, it's like he was totally fine with it as if it wasn't a big deal. I mean yeah she's like a prostitute anyway but still, coulda had more feeling to it. The romantic as well as character development was too slow for me and everything was a bit too much. Everyone made such a big deal about her having tattoo's on her stomach and it was just wrong how everyone treated her like a sex toy when she's only 14.


It was okay... but a bit too much for me.

Good, decent read.

Just don't expect historical accuracies; it is insane how historically inaccurate this manga is. But still, I liked it. It was fun, the main male character was very likeable and sympathetic. He wasn't some brash "I'm hot, rich and I'm going to bone you!" kinda guy, but quiet and clever.

I just wish the ending hadn't been so rushed. That's why I gave this a 7 not an 8.
