Read my Title XD

The thing that keeps me going...is knowing of what's going to Happen NEXT!
Scarlet Chair is so full of msytery. I love the characters, they're not so 'TYPICAL' for a shojo manga..the heroin is androgenous, strong and yet, there's still a feminine side of her. She outshines the MEN and THAT IS a PLUS for this manga.

I love how the story connects and how the characters interact with each other. I still have doubts on who's the REAL VILLIAN in the manga though. But..we'll see!! 8D

Well-paced manga with interesting plot

The reviews say the plot is "confusing" or "the art sucks" well... I say, are those reviewers expecting every shoujo title to be a straightforward (i.e. cute but boring) work filled with nothing but bishounen?

I found the plot extremely refreshing, and the pace had me clicking for more. The heroine, like what the author says, is more of a hero, with the fake!Luca being the heroine instead XD.

Every character was interesting, in that they had their own motivations for the things they did, and some characters are not what they seem. Luca, whom Setsu almost kind of idolises... is especially not what he seems. I think this title would be enjoyed by people who love european-ambient political stories, and want something beyond self-indulgent eyecandy manga. smile

I don't think the end was tragedy though. There were just some things that had to happen. And that's what lends this manga a realistic feel.

I like Setsu as the main character because of her brave personality. She doesn't blush like other shoujo manga girls. I read all the three volume. I does not like the ending much. I hope they can make Luca and Setsu together. Its seems that 沙奇(the boy that help Luca and became the king) act as the boy main character.

Firstly, SLOW UPDATES.
It's almost been a year since the last update of a chapter.
But I can wait. (:
Second of all, great story. There isn't much character development, but the story development helps back up that lack of element that Scarlet Chair doesn't have.
I anticipate so much from this even though I wouldn't necessarily WHOA at the overall work.
But yes, it's worthy of any reader out there looking for a little something to read.
In the end, I gave it a 10 for some odd reason, not because I'm particularly loving the overall, but because I'm completely drawn to it.
Odd.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Even though I didn't really like Dorii Jin that much, I cried RIVERS when he died! D: Awesome; but so sad....CHAPTER 9! I DEMAND CHAPTER 9!! *end rant haha*
I just read Chinese raw (that I didn't get haha) and It was revealed that Setsu found the real Luca, and that the fake Luca's name is actually Saki. So Saki and Sestu get out of the castle, and Luca returns to the throne room. Before this, he promised to continue living, which is obviously a lie TT^TT Anyways, he goes to Kazuna, and Kazuna orders the intruders to bow down in the presence of the king. They probably didn't survive though, since the castle was razed the ground. There was also a flashback of Luca and Kazuna. Luca knew he was sick and wouldn't live for more than two or three years, so he went on the journey so Setsu wouldn't feel sad. However, he did live more that that, haha. Anyways, he wanted to give Saki, his best friend, who had nothing, everything he had: the throne. So sad. Depressing. Gosh. I cried rivers, I tell you, RIVERS.


...Now I'm wondering why this wasn't put under Tradegy... D:

A suspenseful and refreshing read.

One of my favorite mangas of all time, just wish it was longer!

But the nonetheless the shortness suited the manga, and the suspense and twists were very refreshing to see in a shoujo manga.
Art is not the most polished, but at the same time it is very original and the author has her own distinct style. It gives a fading yet rough effect.

I love Setsu and the fake-Luca's relationship. The romance is not over done and very very subtle. Some may not even see it. And Setsu is indeed more like a hero and fake-Luca the heroine, which is once again very refreshing and one of the reasons I love this manga. That does not mean that fake-Luca is a wimp, however.

The ending to me was honestly... rather heartbreaking. But it was inevitable and the ending was not entirely a tragedy, it was somewhat bittersweet. It was an ending that suited the manga and pretty much had to happen.

I recommend this manga to anyone who likes suspence-mysteries and strong heroines. The bittersweet ending and the heartfelt emotion is what makes this manga stay with you long after the last page. The thing about Midorikawa's mangas are the emotions put into it, she has a strong talent in portraying realistic emotions, whether it's loneliness or compassion. This manga has so many mixed emotions and subtleties that I feel people need to pick up to really enjoy this.

at first,i thought it was your simple,typical tomboy girl looking for her childhood friend. yup,it is simple.but the mangaka made a very interesting storyline,thus making it UNIQUE.
(As to be expected of midorikawa yuki..: ))
i really wish that she would be reunited with Luca (And that the series did not end as to where it was supposed to be)

i would really recommend it to all ages. : )

it made me go "wow" and UPON REACHING THE LAST PAGE, "shocks! its already the end?!?". this reaction was unusual,for there are shojo mangas that i have encountered that made me say "I already know the ending! end it already!"

I really want to buy her mangas and support her,but i haven't found anyone who sells her works here in our country.: (

Very refreshing plot, with some great twists. All the characters were likeable and I thought the art wasn't too bad. But I do agree with the comments about the plot being confusing--it definitely gets a bit muddled at the end, and it's hard to keep track of everything. Not impossible though, and definitely worth a read.

The plot is quite cliche in the start, but slowly as the story progresses, it shows that it's not like any other plot and it starts having a twist to it. So far till where I read, the story seems pretty mysterious to me and some relationships require guesswork.

I kind of like the story and characters so far. Truly a recommend.

The art was mentioned on other comments, and it is kind of rough, but in a very good way, it gives edginess to the characters.
It was full of suspense, I was seeing enemies everywhere and you never know for whom should you root or trust... that was refreshing. That's why I don't think the pace was slow, it's just that is full of subtleties. Except for the last chapter, it felt rushed.
The ending... I still don't know what to think about the ending. I can only say do not expect a fulfilling ending, you'll be disappointed.
Overall a good read.
