Description
From Storm in Heaven:
After a scandal got him kicked out of his position at court, Takaaki's been idling the days away at his manor, impulsive and bored. Then one day his friend Naruhito stops by and tells him an insane story about the most beautiful woman alive -- and drags him off in his attempt to win her heart. Tagging along, Takaaki soon realizes that the "Princess" isn't exactly who she (he!?) seems to be. Who exactly is Princess Kaguya, and what is the dark secret behind her (his!?) past?

I should be asleep! But I'm not! Because I thought that I'd just read a very little bit of this manga before going to sleep, and BAM! I read the WHOLE THING AND WANTED MORE!!!

...And, and then, and then I got so excited I accidentally posted this comment before finishing it! I'm not posting while exactly coherent, but I laughed, I cried, it was better than Neko-tachi! Sorry for the perhaps obscure reference, but it's true. I give it a 9 only because it was too short and a little little little bit awkward in a few places, but aren't we all? The awkward part, not the short part.

I'm going to sleep now with happy dreams about amnesia. Which I won't remember, of course.

coming from junjou romantica, which annoyed me a lot, this is a breath of fresh air. hilarious take on the original. and the art is beautiful (mmh-mmmh, heian period). i am happy now; this is the mangaka whom i fell in love with when reading hybrid child.

but shounen-ai, no, i don't think so. the bit that might seem that way is only played for its humour value, and sorry, that doesn't count. calling this shounen ai would be like calling hanakimi shounen-ai just because it has a guy who openly professes his love for his male senpai (who isn't the least bit interested, ever).

Once upon a time there was a legend about a beautiful princess. Then, a crazy mangaka called Nakamura Shungiku decided to make her own whacky hilarious version. Enjoy.

Her Best Work

I think this manga hands down beats all of the mangaka's other works, especially Junjou Romantica. The story is hilarious and innovative, more so if you know the tale it was based on (Taketori Monogatari). There are not many mangaka who are able to do a spin on classic Japanese literature without falling way short of the original, but Nakamura Shungiku did very well with this manga.

Once upon a time, I can't read any of Nakamura-sensei's manga because her art style is just too chaotic for my taste. That is, until I read Mangetsu Monogatari. I should've known the humor will get to me. It's SO FREAKIN' FUNNY! This is not sensei's best, but it could be her funniest! biggrin

I'd recommend this manga to, oh, just about anyone! It's hilarious, for one thing. It's also heart-warming and very sweet. And there's even a light enough tinge of shounen-ai to keep the yaoi fangirls happy ;) What's NOT to love about this series?
