From JanimeS:

The world of Siesta is set in fantasy Europe where there are people called bullet users who were discriminated against badly for reasons unknown to readers as of volume 1.
The discrimination has gotten much weaker due to Grande Corp's efforts to wipe out the decades-old pirate faction with the help of Bulletron, a battle suit designed exclusively for bullet users.

The story begins as the protagonist Dia Canto tells you a little bit about herself: how she became an orphan, how she met her foster family, and how she is very much in love with her step brother, Loe. However, her affection toward Loe is brutally crushed before it would even bear fruit and she goes out to vent her sadness. This is when she encounters Cid Leon, who she would ultimately be paid to "protect".

Awesome premise it never really lived up to. First two, three volumes are quite good, skip the rest. The end (last chapter in particular) was generic and even a tad bit infuriating. Pity, I adored this series.

I love this.
It has a wonderful main girl lead who actually thinks with her brain and not her emotions.
The plot is pretty nice.
The chemistry between the two are also well executed. (right now they have little but that's the whole point)

OK, this series reminds me of manga called gakuen alice in not really meany ways but w/e , there are some small similarities but i still like siesta , maybe even love it, but i would like to tell you of some similarities that i found witch is not allot but still

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
ok so her ability, being able to take other peoples ability just like GA's mikan she can take/cancel peoples Alices and turn them into stones and use it

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
guys that can get away with any crazy ass shit ? nastume. i know there personalty's are defiantly not the same but think about, and also they both have some powerful Alices/ability

dont mind me people im just really obsessed with ga so i noticed this stuff ,these are just a few similarities i found , i think the reason i like this series so much is because it has these small things but stand alone is awesome defiantly alot more mature then GA too ,anyways i should stop comparing.

but besides that i love the story , i love the art (but the body portions are weird), i love the development , and i like that i have no idea where im going with the story , WHY ? because i like to not know what comes next in the story ive read so much manga that was such a wast of time, this series is really making laugh out loud. also since there's no scanlations who wants to go bother yen press for the English version smile please let me know if u want to join me in my spamming smile

I really don't find this manga confusing at all. What I love about the heroine is that she's gone through some very difficult, traumatizing events, but she's brave, kind, and takes care of others without being annoying. I also like how she's calm and very realistic (she reminds me of Teru from Dengeki Daisy), but that she does fight back. I just really want to hug her when people are mean to her. <3 The male lead isn't bad, and overtime I may come to like him too.

At first the manga was fun and easy to understand, but know I'm just confused, what the hell is going on. The plot of the story feels jumpy, I have to read over the chapter in order to understand it. Overall I think this manga is quiet annoying now.

Interesting Clashing Leads

Really interesting and original, don't think I know of a series quite like this one or at least with the same types of male + female leads. The best way to explain it: deep-thinking shoujo girl meets hot headed shounen boy (and he's ACTUALLY very cruel, blunt and womanizing - not something you see in a shoujo, or at least carried out fully) with probably very subtle romance to come. I really hope the plot thickens and more character development comes in to play. Also, the art is great and I love how Dia is drawn, adorable!

This never was able to become one of my favorites because the scans took forever and were kind of confusing when found. Now that more is out (and hopefully continues to come) I can't wait! Definitely recommened. c:

First off: art is gorgeous, I love it. Character development is probably only a little above average; but that isn't surprising as the characters are all very, very original and so understandably would be hard to develop until later volumes when the audience has connected with the series.
ONLY CON: I don't understand why the mangaka has developed the protagonist so slowly, she's not a sap and she's a very strong female, which is nice, but she doesn't have much of personality, as of yet she doesn't have much of a voice in the series.

The plot is the main driving force, not exactly sure where it's leading but I can't wait for the romance to start blossoming, it's got a good pace and heave to it so I'm really looking forward for further plot movement.

Overall: Recommended, original characters, plot may be a bit slow, but at the end of volume 3 you can really feel it starting to lift off.
