Description
From Aerandria Scans:
In this grim and realistic take on classic fairy tales, Prince Ludwig, a female corpse collector, is ordered by his father to find himself a wife more suitable than the women he often brings into the castle. Along with his servant Wilhelm, they travel across the land in search of fair maidens from classic stories in hopes of finding Ludwig a wife.

wow for some reason i hated this the first time i was lookin at it
however i decided to give it another go

and WOW

i loved it, some of the stories are twisted with ingenious twists on the original tales, and some of the stories are just plain heart warming ><
And is ludwig ever hot!!!
k but you dot have to be a female to love this because the story and the art is perfect (it was actually my hate for ludwig that made me drop this, but after the 2nd chapter+ ludwig's character really drew me in)
if you know some of the actual bro grimm's tales and the disney versions you will absolutely love this

the only reason im gave it a 9.1 was cuz the last chapter was like
WTF confused (to those that have read it you should understand the confusion of how the story went from
horror to shoujo >insert cheesiness<)
they should have just stopped with the 2nd last chap and it would have been epic

but even the last chappy was good
therefore you must read this

man, man....

this manga is hilarious... the art is perfect, and the characters are quite extraordinary : a protagonist that looks like a visual kei, a red riding hood that kill, a witch that loves cosplay and an insane snow white. and where again would you find a protagonist that sly, smart, mean, cruel, pervert, lazy and necrophiliac if it's not in yuki kaori's manga? a very well work of picturing dark side of humanity.
and the way she mixed and matched, and ruined the brothers grimm classic tale into a perfect combination that will deconstruct your mind of pure and kind princesses.. it's smart and brilliant...! the dark comedy's part is top of the top.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
the ending is quite a mess with so many previous characters came up, but it's sure a very entertaining way to end this series (the ending was come too fast though, i want more :'( ...


ok, have a good read... wish it would be a nice good-nite tale wink

Ah Ludwig Kakumei<3,
If you thought that the Brother's Grimm fairy tales were dark, think again. Kaori Yuki takes it to a whole new level.
The characters are awesome, and well-developed.
And it shows the darker side of people, and what they'll do to achieve what they want.
The only "negative" thing, was that I wish it didn't end so soon, I wanted to see more of Ludwig, Wilhiem, Dorothea, and their future adventures.

I'm one of those girls who enjoy reading harem--blah. This ain't the type of harem story with all the girls going onto Ludwig for Ludwig's attentions (well, actually, yes, Ludwig is good looking and has random girls going onto him). True, it's got him going onto multiple girls and stuff, but at different times--what am I saying, err, time meaning spans of days and stuff in between. oho. I did not make sense there. ANYWAY.

Personally, I liked the frog prince story and sleeping beauty story and coming in of

Ludwig, I'm very laughing at this point, is AWESOME. One of the best character's I've ever seen--PERIOD. First chapter was kind of freaky, but as it went on, it became less, err, 'obsessed', shall we say.

Ludwig's mother is awesome. THAT IS ALL I SHALL SAY. Too bad you only see her for like the last chapter(s?) or so. And so is Julius. Can't go wrong there--boy trying to kill other boy--ah, the S&M loving witch (Dorethea?) was so cool. Wihelm (or was it Wilhem? Or Wilhelm?) the servant was cool. Little Red Riding hood--assassin, was cool, because she totally was going to kill Ludwig and make Wilhelm (whateverhisname) her slave instead, only Ludwig stole him away during their childhood. I liked Hansel and Gretel~ Sleeping Beauty I liked most of all. biggrin So maybe that has a bit to do with how Ludwig liked her too~<3 Ludwig's father is an idiot. You hate him. But then when Ludwig's mother comes in, you can't help but laugh out your stomach. You're literally reading and crying at the same time going: "That poor fool, he deserved it, and that's why I'm laughing so much at this fitting punishment-!"

Ludwig, you are my hero, wanting to get a bride with big boobs and a pretty face as the pervert you are. You're not afraid to dress pretty, and he wears unisex shoes--oooh, he's dressin' pretty~

Ludwig's mom is an awesome character.

THIS IS ALL YOU SHALL KNOW. NOW READ this manga. >D

an amazing story.. (stories?) prince lui.. he made the story! he was soooooo pretty. made me feel like a fangirl. heh;

beautiful art, a plus for me, but i can't even explain how good it was. the twisted fairy tales, it was nice seeing them told in a new way. the comedy really brought up the rear. and it was just so cuteeee~~. i mean, the story in general wasn't cute, but.. ah, you get my point, right?

and i'd like to think that sleeping beauty and him ended up happy together.. although.. was she a ghost or alive or what? o-o'

i kinda wanted more stories.. and to see prince lui in love more hehe >D. but it was an amazing series. DEFINITLY recommended. i'd give it an 11 if i could.

this story has many exciting twists!!! i like it but... i dont really love it...

yuki kaori-sensei added more flavor to the classic fairy tales!!! i dont think if i can read those fairy tales the same way again!!

its nice but its not really the best...i think that theres something missing in here i just dont know what it is... uhmmmmm...

prince Ludwig is such a sadist with a couple of masochists and all the girls in his journey has big boobies...i dont really like the boy-with-really-long-hair-with-matching-long-nails-look...it just made him look gay!!! too add up his mole in the corner of his eye (reminded me of Nuriko <fushigi yuugi>wink

but aside from that all its a really nice manga!!! it actually made me smile!!! the genre doesnt give it justice ya know?!! it should more of a mystery other than a horror!!!

definitely a must read!!!

Don't be mistaken by the category. Though there are some gory scenes, it isn't much of a 'horror' if you ask me. 'Mystery' is well fitted though.

I was moved by the story of Princess Maileen, and how she died because she was serious about a prince that was using her. How every time a traveler walks by the tower, she kept hoping that it's the prince coming to save her.

It's good, but isn't the best. I attempted to read this before, but always stop when I finish the THIRD PAGE (not third chapter, people ;D). But I gave it a chance yesterday (late at night), and I'm glad I did.

insane male procrastinator.
well, he's not very typical,
but the twist on Grimm's fairy tails was an added bonus.
a little dark at times, but the comedic relief lightened it up a bit.
a lot lighter than yuki kaori-sama's other works.

Comedy w/ a touch of romance, Ludwig Kakumei is a crazy twist from your sappy fairytales. An awesome refresher after too many cliche shoujo mangas.
