Description
Ageha Shiraishi has been sentenced to death, suspected of murdering her four roommates. In her prison cell as she awaits her execution, she tells her warden, Kyousuke, that she is innocent and that she did not commit murder. Kyousuke does some research, but finds that she is still guilty. Upon his return, he finds his superior tied up and stripped. After setting her free, he finds out that he has been tricked, and it was Ageha in disguise.

Ageha can impersonate anyone to the finest detail, whether it be hair color, habits, or even voice. She becomes the first fugitive of the Talsis Prison and she declares that she will find the real culprit. Kyousuke now only has one clue, which is "the Ageha" (swallowtail butterfly) tattoo on Ageha's back. The chase between the characters involved begins as they move to grasp the truth!

Ageha Seemingly After Its Time, but Still Enjoyable

This is proof that cliches aren't bad and it's a matter of how they're executed. Depth does not always made a good work either. Sometimes it's the incredibly simple things that are more exciting. As much as I hate comparing works, this reminds me of Slayers with some more romantic gag. It's not a matter of magic, but Sci-fi. Also the elements aren't given great description and while treated as common knowledge, they're easy to understand. I don't consider this overwhelming in comedy but rather a simplistic style. Ecchi, yes, but barely and only for comedy. There's no emphasis on the "good parts" of the human body. To put it simply, this manga would be more appreciated without the sudden revolution of cliche stomping. I would like more scanlations though.

After reading the first chapter i was like "this reminds me of some anime i watched long ago" because the same characteristics as the people appearing in "Those Who Hunt Elves" were in this series.
I think this is still better though, but I hope there will be less cloth ripping in later chapters

Comedy falls flat.

I ended up stopping at ch 3 despite there being 9 more scanlated chapters available. I just got extremely bored. So it's going on my unfinished and never to be touched list.

It's about a prison inmate on death row escaping to prove her innocence. Not that it makes much difference to the story, but it's a world where aliens and people travel from planet to planet. Because she's the most famous escapee, she's got all sorts of bounty hunters after her, including her former prison security guard who she tricked and got fired for her escape. Because she's a master of disguise, the only way for him to be able to find her is to rip off everyone's clothes to see if they have a butterfly tatoo on their back.

I couldn't get passed the silliness of the entire plot. The artwork is just so so, and I couldn't find it in myself to care for any of the characters. All the comedy just falls flat.

But TurnA is correct in that this has a lot of the elements from those who hunt elves. At the same time, if you thought that was funny... But this is a nice funny story. The manga ka knows how to treat women despite the stripping going on. A lot of stuff made around mid 2000s lacks a certain soul. Like they have some quotient to fill.

Also I imagine that the guy is reusing certain abilities because he feels he can do a little more with them. I have a feeling that this won´t be a long manga.I also have a gut feeling that when it´s over, it´ll end up being quite good.

Those Who Hunt Elves SF?

Seriously though, when I read the first chapter, I go "heck, isn't this really look a like Those Who Hunt Elves?". Reminiscence of mangaka other manga that based on premises of bulky strong fighter, a great actress, weapon expert, and magician. Oh, and also a lot of clothes stripping. (We can found at least three element in the first chapter of this series)
I will not surprised if the same element appearing in the future chapters, but I really hope that this series can become better than reversed Those Who Hunt Elves sci-fi rip off by it's own right.

For now, 7/10.
