Description
Shirayuki is a young woman born with unique apple-red hair. After catching word about her hair, Prince Rajin sends orders for her to become his concubine. With nowhere else to go, Shirayuki cuts her hair and escapes to a neighboring country. While traversing through the forests, she meets a young man, Zen, who helps her after she boldly cures his wounds. He soon, however, becomes poisoned by an apple meant for Shirayuki. What will happen to Shirayuki? What is Zen's true character? A refreshing fantasy story between an optimistic heroine and a prince who constantly stays on her watch.

It has a bad start that is not interesting at all but afterwards, as the arcs starts it becomes very good.
This manga has everything needed:
1) A strong and determined female lead which cries rarely(when appropriate) thus not an exaggerated MC which is either super strong or super fragile
2) A decent male lead that is not arrogant,tsundere or whatever clichés that are available out there
3) Great and neat art as from the middle of the story
4) Great and lovable characters which are well drawn and funny
5) This story doesnt really have a fixed plot and its an asset if you dont like manga which are stretched and stretched till it makes you lose interest
6) A good and simple love that doesnt go through misunderstandings or other stupid situations
7) Historical background
8) A light hearted story that develops slowly and thus makes it interesting
The only bad point in this story is that the couple is fixed from the start and thus the reader knows there's no chance for the love rivals

It wasn't very interesting at the beginning but i decided to read it abit more before giving up on it. Around chapter 20 (when i noticed) it got very interesting and was much better than before so i reccommend not giving up so easily

One of the best shoujo

It's calm with an easygoing pace. Like some other reviewers below have mentioned, it doesn't have much of an excitement factor, so I think some people would probably get bored pretty quickly. However, once you look past the uber-relaxed pacing you'll find some rare treasures that aren't commonly present in shoujo: realistic, complex, likeable characters that don't conform to tropes (the main heroine is kind yet strong and witty, the main male character isn't the cool, tall, cold lead commonly found but rather endearing), beautifully intricate yet clean art, and a slight fantasy twist on the setting that makes the story more enjoyable and interesting to read about. Highly recommended; just make sure you approach it with an open-mind.

This story is meh. I stopped reading after chapter 7, came back and continued and dropped it.

I admit that this does invoke warm feelings, but the story is just bland.

It's simple, sweet, with likable characters and neat art. Besides that there isn't much else, so if you're looking for an exciting, gripping manga I suggest you turn straight around. I made it all the way to the 4th volume before I gave up. Up until then, the characters are pretty and sweet but unremarkable. I gave the manga a seven because it had the potential to be something greater, but since I read all the way up to the 4th volume without seeing any deep plot or character development I couldn't give it any more points. It doesn't hurt to try it, but don't force yourself to read the whole thing.

I really like this series.
At first i didn't give an inch in reading this because i read the reviews first...
Biggest mistake ever!!!!
People have different taste and the mangaka's cannot please the taste of all readers.
There are some who are bound to give bad reviews or always dissatisfied even if it is good.
Lesson learned from this... Read the manga first before disregarding that as no good before even reading it.

This series is a gem...
The heroine is nothing like in any shoujo...
Shirayuki is very independent, strong willed and chooses her path by her own power and will.
Zen is very admirable and supportive to Shirayuki.
He isn't a jerk, a pampering prince and an easily swayed hero that is mostly in shoujo setup...
Really really love this series..
I'm SERIOUS here. I rarely give good reviews and this manga is worth it...

this is a great manga. the art was awesome, shirayuki's hair looks like erza scarlet's (fairy tail) which is so cool and charming. Also I love their outfit >< ... zen looks so cool in all his clothes ... so royal ,,,

everything in this manga is good enough for you to waste your time to read it.

I had to plough through the first 7-10 chapters and i am really glad that i did....because the manga has grown on me and has become something really wonderful a Shoujo Gem as may i add

don't be put down by the initial chapters coz this manga really picks up later on and cultivates into something really awesome for a genre such as Shoujo and guess what this is by far the least Cliched shoujo i have read

all the characters are really awesome, including the secondary characters....so many people to root for so many sub plot romance going on including ....i am deeply invested in the couple as well the side couples of this story (KikixMitsu make it happen)

great manga...highly recommended

10/10

The first 7 chapters are terrible. The first chapter especially is rushed and does not give the reader a feeling of connection with he characters or between the leads. Read it anyway because after that rocky beginning it blossoms into something charming and absolutely worthwhile.

This manga have beautiful art. I love how the mangaka draws her characters and clothes also ornaments on them.

You got different type main character that shoujo manga usually have.
The main female character is smart, kind, strong, brave, and support her love interest with her own way. She also have self-respect and common sense. She is not the type person that only can accept her fate without change it.
The main male character is smart, strong, kind, brave, not some stupid prince or just has handsome face character. He is independent and protect his love interest with his own way.

Although the story kinda slow but development in it make it interesting. The story got intrique and the characters you got not just good or bad character. They have their own reason for their action.
