The art was beautiful. The plot was interesting. I just fealt like the story kept turning from nature to juvinile too often for me to have a solid liking to it. Some parts were also a bit choppy. I didn't think it flowed nicely. As well as rushed.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
starts with a boy talking about fairies. Then there is some girl that came into the picture. He talked about not wanting to be truthful because of her then all of a sudden he was and they liked eachother. Then his evil self did some crazy stuff. Then he's in the fairy world for like 2 seconds. Then he's back and in another persons body. Then he acts like someone's grandchild. Then some crazy stuff happens with one of the fairy gods and Ian is the last key to opening the doors to the demon world. Then they are all saved and Ian and tokage are saved. And everyone sees fairy's. Ps some guy is really a weird chick. After story: raven and isiah start a demon collecting company. The story is so freaky I was freaked out all night about it. It's about haunting curse and killings. Interesting read that one. Didn't get the last page thigh. Why add that? So it can B. C. ?

I absolutely love this mangka's work. Her art is dark and gothic looking, which I like. Her stories are dark and gothic. If you don't like stories that are like this, don't read this one. I don't like this one as well as Godchild and Cain Saga, but it a great read. I found it kind of short, it could have been extended a little. It did work the way it was though. The characters had dept and you got to know enough about them to care what happened to them - especially Ian and Rin. You actually feel sorry for Ian. The little fairy who helps him is a nice touch. The story is somewhat complicated, which may turn some off, but you just need to pay attention to what you are reading. The story is unique in its theme of bad fairies - I get really turned off by the cutesy fairies in most stories. Highly recommend this one.

Fairy Cube is dreamlike and magical and somewhat overcomplicated. For a Kaori Yuki fan it's a delicious read, but if you are unfamiliar with her works, you'd be better off trying some of her more popular manga.

Absolutley detest her other works! This is the only good one! I just love how he turns into a cute little boy and tries to get close to her like that. Then I found out about Detective Conan and was like "Say what? Hell yeah!" The best part of this series was when he was like detective conan - the mystery solving.

So cheesy

There are so many reasons why this manga was bad. The only reason I bought the first volume is 'cause I was like "OOH, A PRETTY FAIRY!" Yes, I am that kind of person. But it's soooo corny. So Ian is the very unfortunate boy, and Rin is the amazing unfortunate girl. I DON'T CARE. When these characters have no depth, it ruins the series as a whole. Not to mention some of the characters were so similar I couldn't tell them apart.

this didn't really grab my attention in the beginning, like a few others have said, but i'm so glad i followed through. in kaori yuki's style, this is really a magical read. with elements and characters that really really make you delve deep into the story.

it wasn't just about the "main characters", each character had their own story, quirks, and unique personality. also, each one managed to change throughout the story. a LOT of information for such a short story, but it's not very overwhelming. and of course, beautiful artwork. (hehe, i did like isaiah more at the end~ >3)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
i only wish that it followed rin and ian's relationship at the end, i mean holding hands is nice and all but.. xD they never got to act like lovers.. :<


bravo~

i was a bit dissapointed, though, the lead hero wasn't as charming as prince lui was in ludwig kakumei. oh well, he had his own charm. ;P

Kaori Yuki's Lightest Work

Honestly, this was a very refreshing read: Plenty of action, a good plot, not a lot of her usual melodrama. It's very original, and leaves a soft feeling at the end. The artwork is astounding, and Fairy Cube is worth reading just for that! For only three volumes, there are a lot of pieces to the plot, a lot of background, and plenty of tie-ins between characters. She captures the feeling of 'magical' very well. This makes a great re-read too.

This serie was indeed one of the best i've read. The atmosphere was truly magical as well as the feelings it give me. The characters had depth, not the usual good vs evil, even in a magical world they had both calitates and deffects and their reasons seemed quite realistic.
At points it was a little difficult to read, some of the ideas were presented in a very confusing way, even so i'm happy i gave it a chance.
I highly recommend this to any reader with the least bit of imagination.

Kaori Yuki Must-Read

I'll admit that Fairy Cube didn't grab my attention at the beginning. Despite the fact that I really enjoyed Kaori Yuki's classic, Angel Sanctuary, I haven't made it a point to read any of her other mangas. Boy, was that ever a mistake because I wished I had given Fairy Cube a chance when I first encountered it in Shojo Beat.

Though it's a short 3 volumes, Fairy Cube has a lot of the same intriguing elements that made Angel Sanctuary so great. Here Yuki spins a fantastical tale of a world inhabited by fairies and demons, a world that only Ian can see, but humans cannot.

Once again, we encounter a theme reminiscent of Angel Sanctuary, a battle between good and evil. Caught within the middle of this war is our young and hopeful hero, Ian, and a medley of characters ranging from the seemingly evil Tokage to the enigmatic Kaito. It's a story about love, adventure, and heroism - all told in the hauntingly beautiful tone and art that is characteristic of Kaori Yuki.

Though the plot does get convoluted here and there, don't let this discourage you from reading it all the way through. It's a notch above most of the cookie cutter shoujos out there and a must-read for any Kaori Yuki fan.
