Boring romance, stupid female lead turned uber Mary Sue

The only redeeming qualities of this manga are that 1) the art is pretty decent and 2) Osora (the main female) didn't immediately swoon when the man male said she was his fiance. In fact, she seemed pretty upset about it and constantly tried to ditch him. Unfortunately, since this is a bad shoujo manga, she did eventually fall for him.

It wasn't horrible until about the third time Osora was almost raped. I don't understand why the men at this school are so sex-starved and why they all concentrate on her. Osora is also dumb as fucking bricks, and not in an endearing way. The romance was hideously boring with a typical mostly impassive, stoic love interest, and the "monster" forms of the students are unimaginative.

What really prompted me to stop reading, though, was when Osora went full Mary Sue mode with her

snow-white crow wings and being some legendary being or something.
I just couldn't stomach any more after that.

I am in no way a "Taste God" so you don't have to take my word for it, but I found it extremely annoying.
The premise was interesting enough so I started reading. The plot is slow on the uptake, the girl seems to shrink from chapter to chapter so that so towards the end it looks like a midget trying to hump dirty uncle harry. The art is ok, for 11 and a half volumes you get told about the big "mystery" then she reads the same book, what? 3 times and then in the last 2 chapters puff it is resolved and rather stupidly. instead of developing the existing characters, new characters are constantly introduced. and one of the things that really made me laugh, though I think it was hardly mangaka's intention, while the main heroin needs 11 volumes to say i love you one of her school friends, says it very casually in 3 chapters. There are many many more things but for that just read the other reviews, that are much more objective and detailed. I am writing this because I have the "I have started, I must finish it" disease and I am annoyed at the manga, at the mangaka and mostly at myself.

I liked this manga a lot, so it's very surprising that there are a lot of negative views on this...

It's pretty funny and I like the art (but others don't??)
I think around the middle it does get a biut over-dramatic, and I got a little bored...but I still read it to the end...

So people are just saying that people around her *seem* to rape her? I didn't get that offense... I don't even remember a lot of smut, after the first 1-2 volumes...

8 gets my rating.

i read up to around 20 chapters i think and i was sick of it. i didn't get why it was so popular tbh so i put it on hold. it was seriously boring and i thought it was kinda pointless too
but i picked it up again a few days after, and finished it today. it gets so much better, the storyline progresses much more and the ending is good, it suits it perfectly. there are actually proper and better arcs and the art looks slightly better too.

Reading this felt like I was stomaching garbage.
Actually, I would have rather have done that than read this.

I think this should get an award for being terrible because it takes skill to make something this godawful.

So we have this chick who supposed to be all plain and stupid and stuff (even though she has perfect hair, a cute face, and huge t*tties), who gets into this high school that she hasn't bothered to do any research on. But you know she's a shoujo protagonist and they're expected to be as dumb as bricks.
This could be used to make a somewhat decent story, or at least a mediocre one but alas it's horrible:
Unlikable protagonist who's the most unlikable Mary Sue ever. (Even Bella from Twilight pales in her comparison.)
Idiotic love interest Gary Stu who attempts to rape the Mary Sue every three minutes. All he can think about is sex sex sex. Because in a relationship where you barely know the chick, it's totally alright to sex her up against her will every chance you get (sarcasm). It's like this mangaka makes him this way to fulfill her own messed up sexual fantasies.
Stupid ideas. Making her some legendary, gorgeous white-winged tengu. Having every man she's ever had eye contact with fall in love with her. Wtf?

I can't believe I read this.
Or someone put their time and effort into scanning and translating this.
I need some aspirin.

the first time i read this i loved it. it seemed to have everything i wanted and need. at the time i was a huge shugo smut fan a was on the verge of reading every shoujo smut baka updates has to offer (i officially have now) and this seemed to have all th elements i was looking for. at the time i was used to ditzy weak female characters becuz lots of shougo smut tends to have those type of characters. so it was great i loved it and it was very memorable but i know after reading all the smut and going on to read normal shoujo i could never read this again and like it as much as the first time. i tried once and i was very throw off by the whole thing so i just decided to keep the happy memories of this manga in my head and forever remember it the way i saw it when i read it the first time. so im gonna say its a great read. but overall i guess that is debatable but the art is great no matter what type of story you like and the lead male is hot as a mother

I like this series... and not because it reminds me of Black Bird either. But I do have to admit that they are very very similar. Besides that I love the artwork. Very much to my liking. Though there are similarities to black bird, I still like the story. Read it <3

This manga is for stupid people. I can't believe people love this.

So we have a totally useless girl who is also a Mary Sue and she is surrounded by guys who want to rape her. Story? There is no story. It's just a bunch of random events where the protagonist Hiyo is doing stupid things and she is chased by guys or her fiance is seducing her.

Now, the setting is also lame. And it's not that I mind the school-setting. Hiyo attends to a school where everyone is a monster, but they look human with an animal mixed. Later, the author is adding vampires, deities, demons and seriously, wtf. She is trying to make things more melodramatic by,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Making Kurou getting seduced by another woman and then it is revealed that he is the bad guy. And so Hiyo had to fight him in a style a.ka Sailor Moon.

Also I couldn't see romance. Ok, her fiance was telling her some sweet words but still, it wasn't something deep. Most of the time their relationship was comical and he was just there to save her from the 'bad guys'.
And some notice about smut; I didn't saw any smut. There were only a slight ecchi scenes on the beginning but later there wasn't any smut. I was expecting a Midnight Secretary, Akuma na Eros smut scenes.

The characters are barely developed and most of them are boring. Even the male lead do not convince me, I found him pretty boring. And Hiyo is just freaking dumb.

I have also a big complaint about the artwork. It is supposed to be a soft smut title, yet the artwork do not match much. It's an artwork that fits more for a magical girl manga or just a light shoujo.

I picked this only because it was labeled as smut and second because I heard it was good like Midnight Secretary and it was nothing like that.

A main character running around almost getting raped by everyone only she is saved RIGHT in time by her gross pervert fiance or someone else that is also perverted. So really I dont know if you could call that being saved I guess thats the best it's going to get for her.

and I dont even know what the plot is. It seemed to be mainly based on perverted and ridiculous (and not funny) situations. Twas not my cup of tea. And although I didn't read all of it (I feel kind of bad still reviewing it but I really had to stop) it was really lacking in plot, seriousness and decency from what I could see. Maybe it gets vastly better as time goes on I really don't think so though... I mean as far as stories go it could be a lot worse I suppose but still this is 12 whole freaking volumes long. My experience with this one was filled with a bunch of WTF moments.

But I mean that's my opinion. See for yourself. It really just depends on your tastes because apparently 300 other people love it, which baffles me.

Ok ignore other comments because you HAVE to read for yourself to decide!!!
I love this manga so much that I have to read it over again a 2nd time!!!!
I agree that the main lead is always getting rapped and doesn't try to defend herself most of the time, but her stubborn and cute attitude make up for it! Considering how much mangas I've read (over 1000 but a lot I forgot name so not on my lists) I can defintely say the girl is NOT weak AT ALL! Ive seen SO much worse that will make you unable to pass chapter 2!
So give it a shot before deciding!
