lovely art AND story??
Omg..... lemme just gush about how hot the man guy is for a while... don't mind me.... I love the cover art btw.... as many have already said, this series features great romance + fantasy elements. I Love It!
This maybe the most substantial comment I've ever write on a manga.
I haven't read the novel yet so, all my comment will just be based on the manga. It's purely fiction, with all those "fairy doctor" thing, thieves and aristocrats so I had doubts on reading...at first. I thought it ends in volume 2, however it still extends and focus on Edgar's misery. This manga never fails my expectation, while reading this I was wishing that it won't step into "cliche" zone...The romance plot is quite vulnerable, it was carefully done not to make Lydia turned into a Tsundere and doesn't made Edgar into a drag.
I understand if the ending or the romance between Edgar and Lydia might be a turn-off to some readers, but do understand how FICTION works. After all they went through, it's not like things would normally fall back into pieces...it needs time, duhh.But knowing they felt the same way..of course it's an assurance that they do both wanted each other. Remember. ....too much is boring.
This manga is incredible! Extremely cute and adorable!!! BUT!!!! It ended. I'm not talking about any kind of normal ending. It was as if it was literally cut-off! Unfinished!! SOOO disappointing!!!!!!!!! It had so much potential too!!! It's sad to know that such a good manga was ended like this...When it was still going, it was enjoyable but now, sometimes I feel like it was better to not read such a good manga like this, just to see it end so unfittingly. I know there is a novel but still =TT-TT=
Good manga, bad anime
I really enjoyed what's scanlated so far of this manga, so after having this not updated for nearly a year I decided to check out the anime-- which turned out to be terrible. It's so much more hella cutesy-shoujo waff when it comes to everyone and especially Lydia in the anime. It's disgusting. (Not to mention that the opening song SUCKS, for the record.)
Lydia isn't as helpless or ~desirable~ to every male on the planet as the anime perceives her to be, and I really hate how everything boiled down to romance being the driving factor of the climax. I know that it's shoujo and all, but geez, the fluff can come in moderation! I just hope that the manga doesn't go down the same path that the show did. At the very least, the raws hinted that it wouldn't be as idiotic.
I really like it, though it gets confusing at times and sometimes Lydia gets on my nerves when she's so easily tricked and sometimes lacks common sense. But she can be strong at moments, though usually needs her helper to guide her. But then there are aspects i like about her, like how she's a fairy doctor and does what she can to help the fairies, even if people look at her like a weirdo she still wants to properly do her duty. Plus she's actually pretty good at it. And once she does make a decision, she goes through with it, no matter how dangerous or scary it may get(though that's also the part of lacking common sense, i'm contradicting myself aren't i?) And it makes sense that she doesn't understand the horrible past ermie, raven, and edgar have gone through. It's not her fault she's had a sheltered life, i mean realistically speaking if any of us heard what they'd gone through, most of us would be pretty damn horrified and shocked. Anyway, i do like that even though its pretty unbelievable to her, she still accepts its. Basically i like the story so far and to see how it goes and i recommend checking it out.
At first i didn't feel like reading it but i just could help but read it and i find it very amusing in some ways and its very mature so i doubt anyone young would like this manga.
This manga is unique, you can relate to the girl and understand her easily and with such a hot guy you cna't help but want to find more about him
I'll admit, my first judgement of the heroine was that she wasn't the brightest button. I thought that she took things completely at face value, was gullible and incapable of deception simply because she could not imagine it. I also thought that she was very lonely and therefore vulnerable. A victim. I thought that the hero was the prince charming type; that he would sweep her off her feet and commit himself to her in a highly public manner thus vindicating her and freeing her from her troubles. The faery angle was going to be noting more than a gimmick.
But I was wrong - neither the hero nor the heroine have conformed to that initial impression. She asks questions and is not completely sold by the Earl's story. He has yet to show just what sort of person he is though you suspect that he isn't as black as he paints himself (which is very black). Nevertheless he is a mystery. Even more shockingly there is a plot! The mangaka is making full use of British mythology and they contnue to create intrigue and suspicion. The conflict between the 2 main characters gives an edge to their relationship and there is an added sexual tension between them which is a;ways fun ^_^
Its more authentic than some historical, European manga that I've read - although there are still mistakes. People still address the Earl as 'Earl' which doesn't ring true - it should be Lord I think...
Still, this shoujo isn't predictable. Now that is worth reading! For the moment anyway.

It was a good read....
The anime got me off topic and now the manga made me crazy. I have not seen any man in the world of manga as beautiful as Edgar, though I fall for almost everyone when I read manga or watch anime. But yeah, the anime was really good and the song in the anime were also really good.
Hakushaku to Yousei is seriously one of the best mangas I've read *nods* You don't find many where the girl doesn't instantly fall and succumb to the lead hero's seduction The anime was awesome but short T_T The manga is going pretty well, making sure to include all details left out in the anime ^^ But I still prefer the light novels best ;P

I watched the anime, and I think it's really good. It's a nice blend of action, romance, comedy and fantasy. Really refreshing The art is really nice as well and very clean, and Edgar is total eye candy. The characters are lovable and enjoyable xD Definitely reccommend it.
