Cute

This manga is pretty cute, but as many have mentioned, it is also really fluffy.

The main character is actually relatable, and most of the characters' actions make sense, but the author could've made this manga even better by going deeper into detail. The struggle of being a foreign queen paired up with a child king has been lightened by a lot, but the story is still enjoyable.

Niki, the queen-to-be, has a serene mind that tries to see beauty in all things (I've been trying to do this as well, and y'know what? The rain IS really pretty). She is also way more down to earth, due to her origin as more of a "tribal princess," this helps to show all the energy she has and stuff. Inevitably, her positive aura becomes a huge part of the king Livi's life--to the point that he becomes semi-insane if her life is threatened.

(I kind of understand that feeling. I mean, the poor dude has been in darkness for so long that he never wants to let go of his light again.) And despite being a child, he has the wisdom of a king, albeit he also has the cruelty of a conqueror. (niki is changing that side of him though, and I love that)

Either way, this one isn't all THAT cliche. Something about the two characters make me root for them...like a lot. I like both of them--thank goodness.

OH ALSO, if anyone is looking to propose to someone for marriage, this manga has some romantic quotes that just leaves people shivering.

One of the meaningful quotes (NOT related to marriage):

Niki is commenting on how the young king doesn't enjoy the beauty the world offers:
"Your majesty, even though you have conquered the world, none of it is reflected in your eyes."


So enjoy life guys! Go look at flowers! Go sleep under the sun~! Sing in the rain!

Too much fluff for me. Female lead is only capable of saying sweet things

Needs more haughtiness from the female lead. She's pretty much a princess in title with none of the mannerisms, experience, or competence, much to my disappointment.

She's more like the poor girl character paired up with the king. (Well, actually, her family's poor, despite being royalty.) She's optimistic and tries to show how pretty and beautiful and awesomely sparkly the world is. Better yet, when people talk crap about her, she has no retorts on hand. Of course, insult her man, and she immediately agrees to any stupid bet or challenge because she just HAS TO prove her worthiness to others. *sigh* For god's sake, you control the freaken' rain! You don't need to prove nuthin'.

Anyways, it does have its sweet moments. The male lead being younger and not having a complex about it is mildly refreshing. He also says some sweet things. They show hints of his dark side, but they're barely there. The girl is a pretty stereotypical shoujo lead, not annoying, but not particularly interesting. Even the villains are pretty boring. I dropped at the end of volume 2.

Verdict: Meh. Read if you feel like fluff.

So far, at eight chapters, I feel like this manga has great potentional. I love the two main characters, I've been searching for a strong, independent, and smart female lead. The male lead was a great mix of childish, arrogant, and cool.

The art is good and I feel that the main characters are slowly being fleshed out. I sense a little insanity in the young king, especially at the end of chapter eight...Wow. I get the feeling he's going to be a little too possesive. (Btw, the age gap is like four years and it doesn't really bother you.) You get the feeling that he'll grow up into an incredibly handsome man.

I honestly can't wait to read more. You get a mix of really intense, almost evil emotions and a butterfly sweet feeling.

Really Good!!!!

I really adore strong willed heroines like Nike.
He is not your typical shoujo heroines who always act weakly and cutesy and always easily swayed by emotions.
Nike is very likeable, she is simple, strong and independent.

Livius maybe a bit arrogant and immature at times but he knows how to protect his wife Nike.
Vice verse, Nile saves Livius back at times.

I really want to know how the story progress..
I don't mind the big age gap between them.
As long as their feelings are true and honest that's all that matters.

I was really touched when Livius told to Nike these lines:
"You don't have to worry about me ever letting you go"
"Even if everyone says we aren't suited for each other, the only necessary thing i'll ever need is you"
"In addition the difference in our height won't last forever"
kyaa!!!!! so sweet!!!!!!

Bit of a cliche, but amusing

The story is a bit on the cliched side and the art suffers badly from the whole disproportional appendage epidemic that seems to affect shoujo series more than any others. The author has a good handle on comedy and though the art leaves a lot to be desired is able to effectively communicate the feelings of the characters.

I think the art is something that will improve with time (I hope so at least) and the dynamics between the king and the princess are interesting to read. The king is said to be a child but he doesn't appear to be much younger than the princess so I'm not sure this is something that should be called younger male older female from how they look, but the king certainly acts young.

This isn't the first shoujo I'd recommend someone read, but I wouldn't tell them to stay away from it either.

I've only read the first chapter because that's all that is scanalated at the moment, but I love it!! The king is such a brat, but it's hilarious how Nike puts him in his place. Cliche, of course, but so sweet at the same time. Love it!!!!!
