I really like it
o_o It's nice. *Great Art *Cute Story Line *I really like the Female Lead
It's worth the read, I think.
Same old song and dance
Feisty shoujo heroine x Cross-dressing cool servant. Also, it's the Edo period, so they're both courtesans. If you're really into master-servant relations and historical shoujo, this is a good pick. Otherwise, it's just your run-of-the-mill shoujo. On the up side, the protagonist isn't too off-putting, and it's pretty funny. On the down side, it throws realism out the window, the romance is pretty contrived, and it doesn't bring anything new to the table. From reading the summary, you'll know if you're going to like this. Also, as others have said, the group scanslating this (not Aerandria) likes to slap a gigantic logo on every page (so much so that it obscures the art and some of the dialogue.
REMOVE THE STAMPS PLZZ!!!
the complete manga is covered up by the stamps ... why do you wana ruin our fun :@ i love the mangaka ...n its such a waster of others work too the typesetting etc... please who so ever is the admin think about it well... or idk im really angry i did ruin ur scanlation its a warning from my side.... please dont mess with such beautiful art and such a cute plot....... and the stamps are horrifying ...O_O
w.e the 10 IS JUST FOR THE ART AND THE STORY. not for your group.. i did mark u a -100 . i mean it.
Please remove the watermarks
I love the story and the artwork but please don't cover every pages with the watermark sign. It is ruining the mangaka's work if we can't read or see the artwork. At least make it translucent so it would be easier to see. I agree with most of the reviewers here. Other than that I just love the storyline.
To Doko Demo Doa
i gotta say. Doko Demo Doa Scans.. you've really outdone yourselves. You bother with scanlating manga for the public, which is nice, and very generous of you guys.. but in the end, you just cover 50% of every page with a HUGE, OPAQUE and completely in the way logo of your group. I mean, what's the point of even scanlating the manga if the watermark just blots out all your hard work? I know it's hard to keep people from stealing your hard work and claiming it for themselves and calling it their own work, but having at huge logo that covers up the entire manga isn't exactly fair play for the innocent masses. Not a lot of people are privileged with being able to buy the manga locally, or possess the knowledge of knowing how to read manga raws and interpret them well enough to understand. So, when people find translated scans available online for reading, it overjoys them. Instead, you chose to drown their joy in disappointment since they'll never be able to enjoy the story fully from these ridiculously over-sized watermarks with their solid opacity. I truly commend you and your group for even picking this story up to translate to everyone else for free, but really, tone down on the watermarks. Even if you don't want to downsize your logo, at the very least, tone down on the opacity. Please.
Doko Demo Doa Scans, If you've read this comment, please, tone down on those over-sized watermarks of yours. This will please everyone of us out there reading your works.
trying to put the ratings up
i love the story, the characters, everything except for the watermarks of the scans... However, we're rating the MANGA itself and not the scans, aren't we? Nevertheless, im rooting for this manga =)) Hoping for more <3
Impossible to read
Those are not watermarks. They just stamp a HUGE opaque logo that sometimes covers half a page in every page making it impossible to read. Which honestly makes all the work they have scanlating futile since I pretty much understand the same % as in raws, with the difference that in the raw scans I can actually see the characters expressions.

Please!!! Somebody!!! Take this manga from Demo Doa!!! Or Demo Doa - stop doing THIS!!! It's impossible to read, it's impossible to see!! What's the point in translation?? It's so f... irritating!!! I understand your point, but it's not the way you do it!!! You're ruining good drawing and good and interesting plot. I'm not dropping this manga. I just don't understand what happened in the last chapters at all!!!!
Decent but those WATERMARKS!
It's pretty good for a shoujo, I'll give it that. It's like pyrite, imitating a good manga. The story's okay, nothing special. It's kind of fun but the character development is slow. And yes, like many others, I have to complain about the watermarks. In some chapters they're 80% of the page!! It's crazy! Some crucial moments are ruined all so that you have "Doko Demo Doa Manga Scanlations" ingrained on your mind. I understand the use of watermarks, and in some chapters they're ok. They're large, but they don't cover up anything too important (background, for example). I don't understand the need for them to be SO huge and in the way!!
Love this Manga; Hate the Watermark
This manga has always been on my wishlist, and I only got to it today. I noticed a problem with watermarks somewhere halfway into the current scans and just got to chapter nine, where it's come to the point in which I can't even see half of the page anymore.
I figured the first few pages would be like that because they don't want anyone to rip off their scans, but then I lost my patience halfway into the chapter.
The last watermark was fine because I could see partially read the text, but this watermark is ridiculous.
Until Doko Demo Doa makes the watermark less obnoxious or another group picks up this manga, I won't be reading it.
That being said, I really do love this manga and am glad I picked it up. It's a shame for me to set it aside again, but in order to preserve my good impression of it, it's the only thing I can do.
