I've read a lot of mangas & this one is DEFINETLY in the top 5. I love it so much. It's cute sweet & the art is BEAUTIFUL!
Sure the boy is younger than the girl, but don't let that stop you he's a hunk! =P
Great story. Whenever I think of great artist, I automatically think HINO MATSURI!!

I'm giving it a 9.6/10 because it was just awsome, but the last volume I felt was a little rushed in ending, but still an awsome read.
DEFINELTY recommended! Give it a try, you'll fall in love

This is probably the only older girl younger boy manga i actually really like. And the age gap thing
I'm not a fan of that either but I really loved this.

A good story with so many cutie moments. I've already fell in love with it ^^
Content, art, characters - all are good, but I found the ending a little bit fast and simple. Just want to read more~ ^^

This manga is one of those manga’s you can just read over and over again (which I have done). It’s stuffed with so many cute moments and added with good characters and an interesting premise this manga is definitely recommended.

Plot- A very nice plot but somewhat simple and the problems, while troublesome and creates a more interesting plot line, I felt they could have been developed a bit better. I would have also liked to see the world of Astale be developed a lot more, with its culture and its politics. But the short story was still had quite a nice plot line.

Characters- They were all nicely done and portrayed. You really disliked the antagonists and yet when you heard their reasons behind their actions you had to feel a bit bad for them. The heroes you rooted for and wanted to see them win over their adversaries. Airi was a perfect heroine for this story, hesitant at the beginning to be involved with anything to do with Astale but slowly she grows a bit more willing to help out and accept her role in that world. It was a nice transition that I enjoyed. I also enjoyed seeing Aram grow up mentally as he took on more responsibilities throughout the story. These two characters matured nicely through the series.

Art- Was excellent, nothing much else to say!

Other- At the end of the story I felt it fell a bit below the standard the story had set before. It went quicker than the pace had previously been and there seemed to be a couple random events that were never resolved. But while the ending wasn’t as good as the beginning it was still good and I’m glad it did a little time skip into the future. The age gap between Ari and Aram was a bit to large for my liking to (and Aram was just so young!) this point was helped along by Aram's maturity for his age and by the fact that he transforms into the body of an older boy it was a bit strange and I can see how some people will dislike the manga because of the age gap. All in all I recommend this manga!

8/10 – Was good

I read this series a long long time ago, much before Vampire Knight.
The story develops very well, even with just 4 volumes. The art is clean and gorgeous.
In fact, Matsuri Hino is very talented as a mangaka; the plot, the dialogue, the artwork, everything fits perfectly.
So the reason I give it 10 is not because I'm a Vampire Knight fan.
Matsuri Hino-sensei had specified that she wanted to write more about a twist about Nakaoji, but no space was left. **what a sad thing sad

If you're like me who likes cute/sweet/romantic comedy manga (especially cute, sweet, fantasy, and romantic), then you'll really like it.
But if you're not into this type, then you wouldn't even care to read it.
This story is very different from Vampire Knight. Anyway, just because you don't like vampire story or 'Twilight', it doesn't mean should go against Hino Matsuri's manga or Vampire Knight. All her works are great.

By the way, in the story where the age difference between Airi and Aram is specified:
Aram became 17.
Airi said: "I'm 20 *cough* years old, is that all right?"
REASONING: it's not because she's 20! She is 20*cough* -->
the "cough" has omitted the last number --> age: 20 something --> age: 2x
So, the age difference is not 3.

I loved it. Every bit of it! It was really cute, the characters were awesome, and the ending was just how I wanted it to be...perfect. It's kind of confusing, but you'll understand it quickly enough.

Recommend it to shoujo and fantasy fans. ^^

Um.. is no one else disturbed by the fact that she fell for a little kid? No matter if he occasionally turned into a boy her age... his mentality was that of a child. That kinda creeps me out. XD And all the guys liked her.. the ending was rushed, in my opinion, very anti-climactic, too... so.. yeah. Not particularly my cup of tea. It wasn't horrible, though. If you want a light, short read if you're bored, it should be fine. *shrug*
