Description
[From Peccatore Sanctuary]:

It was love at first sight for Iwaki Kei. Entering the drama club was to get closer to Kyoumizu, but the only roles Iwaki seemed to get were Passerby A or commoner B. On one fateful day, Iwaki saved Kyoumizu who was suddenly attacked by someone, and since then, he was called the "Princess' Knight." Jealousy from classmates ensued, but Iwaki did not seem to be overtaken at all. And, Kyoumizu has also become attracted to his charm... the topic of Happy School Life!

The echo of the story-within-a-story was well done.

The main story runs parallel to the metadiegetic story of Romeo and Juliet. The primary setting in which all the action happens is Shakespeare's play, as the members of the drama club prepare to perform a version of his play in 2 months time. The echoes of themes, like unsuitable partnerships, bullying, loyalty and unswerving affection, were done elegantly.

There was no adult explicit levels of intimacy, not saying that it wasn't sexy; it was just discreet of delivery. The emotions of jealousy, anger, fear, loss of control, trust and hesitancy all came across vividly through the emotional drawings. Personally, I always feel a bit let down when the traditional shoujo trick of flowers substituting for detail is applied, but if one likes purple prose manifested in illustration, one will like the intimacy scenes.

It was a simple, likeable story, but the delivery had some depth and thought. Even though all the characters were eventually idealized, they still had personalities that were alive and vibrant--from the frustrated Captain who eventually showed the depth of his love even though he wasn't perfect, right through to Iwaki who lacked much in the self-confidence department. Even the little uke had endearing courage.

If you don't want to get too whacked over with plotting, psyche or philosophical pondering, or you don't want to anguish in emotion,than this sweet idealized romance is for you.

It's incredibly sweet and although the plot is a bit clichéd, it's worth a read. I really enjoyed watching the characters grow. Also, I was surprised to find the art not as old fashioned as it appeared to be. Give it a shot, you might be surprised.
