Description
From Aerandria Scans:

"There once was a girl with a splendid flower blooming upon her chest."

When Lys was born, her heart did not beat at all. To save her, her mother made a contract with a devil: Lys can borrow his heart until the day she turns sixteen, but after that, he will eat her body. Together with her companion, Siva, someone whom she met by chance in the desert at night, she travels around as a dancer girl to find the devil who sealed her fate. One day, while they were traveling, they suddenly meet an egoistic prince and a ring spirit...

i loved this manga! it was different than most shoujos and the art is amazing. i'm not gonna say its a MUST READ since just because it floated my boat, that doesn't mean someone else would like it but i'd definitely recommend it to people looking for a short shoujo with beautiful art and a unique plot

The only good thing about this manga is the art. The art is simply beautiful. But other than the art, there really is nothing special or interesting about this manga. The story is mediocre, as are the characters. And the ending is just a failed attempt. The characters are transparent; they have absolutely no depth andthe chemistry between the characters, well...it's just a typical shoujo. Truth be told, if it had not been for the art and the fact that this manga was only two volumes, I would have never finished this manga.

Although I didn't expect much from the manga....once I finished reading, I can honestly say that I was in tears.....Really BEAUTIFUL Story.

I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this to people that aren't looking just for a cliche story.

Greatest Shoujo manga I have ever read.

All I read is mostly shoujo mangas, they appeal to me a lot, despite the many people criticizing it. This manga is just beautiful, I completely did not see the ending. I loved it. It was beautiful, sweet, warm, and I loved the characters. This manga truly expressed it's emotions clearly, especially the feeling of desperation. This manga is an A+, the art is amazing, the storyline is original, the feeling is just right.

I recommend this to everyone and anyone!

Wonderful! Read it!

I held reading this story off, I stumbled across it a few times and it looked just like the regular cutesy shoujo where everything is always wonderful etc. However I finally read it and found that to some extent I was right but I was also terribly wrong. Terribly wrong in a very good way!

Plot- See the description above, now imagine darker themes woven into the story. Themes like... death and killing. The plot was much better than I thought it would be! The pacing was very nice, not to fast but in the two volumes it completed the story excellently. In the beginning it was a bit redundant, but it quickly develops into something more and in the end everything makes sense and had a reason for being shown. If anything I want to get across that the plot if VERY GOOD! It really managed to grip me, and near the end I was wondering how in the world it could end well! Everything comes together so splendidly... just read it!

Characters- All the characters were WONDERFUL! Each one developed throughout the story, even the side characters. They were all wonderful and I couldn't help but get attached to every single one, the two mains especially. These characters coupled with the wonderful story line made the manga all the more better.

Art- Beautiful, especially the clothes and scenery! It was so intricate and detailed, helping the already great manga become even better!

Other- Before I end this review I just want to say... this manga was AWESOME! The story is just so great, blending happiness and sadness, fear and hope, pain and love... now I feel cheesy! But really, this manga deserves some more readers and I feel stupid for not reading it before!

8/10 - Was good

I read it in one day, it was really short but incredibly good! it's now one of my favorite fantasy romances! i will always remember it! it is definitely my type of thing. the romance is sweet and cute and it develops nicely! the main female is adorable and the main male is hot and i LOVE their relationship, especially the flashbacks! and the supporting characters are incredibly likeable and it is very easy to become attached to them in such a short time. I definitely suggest this manga! Its worth it!

Shoujo at its best.

First off, this really is shoujo manga, meaning it's manga that was created for girls. That being said, while it is possible for guys to like this manga, you have to remember it was created for girls, so don't be disappointed when it's romantic.
Now that that's been established, I think it's a wonderful manga. I'll admit I cried. Multiple times. During each chapter. Anywhoo. There's enough humor to cut through the dramatic and tragic parts so that the manga doesn't seem too heavy. The relationship between Lys and Siva is well-paced enough so that it's satisfying and reasonably believable. The characters are wonderful. The art is wonderful. The plot is wonderful (although admittedly a little cliche). The ending is actually pretty good. The series doesn't end in absolute tragedy, but it also doesn't end in an empty, happy, all-tied-up-with-a-bow way either. Overall, Hanatsukihime manages to spin a wonderfully romantic and at times tragic story without falling committing the sins of fast-paced love and cliched scenarios that are so common in the shoujo manga genre.

A fairy tale for everyone to enjoy.

Among all the manga in this world, there are bound to be many that are mediocre. Thousands of manga, and so many of them stick to the common tropes and cookie cutter formulas, not bothering to be original or impressive, but many of which may be enjoyable to read in their own right.

Hanatsukihime is not one of those.

Hanatsukihime is, essentially, a fairy tale. I read it in one sitting, about an hour and a half. It hooked me from eh very beginning to the very end. While this is a shojou manga, as a guy, I still enjoyed it, and honestly, while it is a shojou manga all the way through, it is still going to be just as entertaining regardless of your gender. In fact, I'd even say it has fanservice that may appeal to the males (for example, I don't think Lys ever wears any clothing that covers the midriff at any point in the manga, unless you count the cloak she sometimes wears) while at the same time, being a shojou manga (I hear the girls love Siva, and I can sort of see why).

The artwork is what you would expect form a shojou manga. The style is exactly what you would usually see. I loved the art myself. Definitely good artwork, good enough that one could read it for the artwork itself... though there's a whole lot more to be had here.

The plot was mostly character-driven. Everything is about the characters, and that is a good thing. Don't expect political intrigue or a quest to gain power levels, you won't find that here. There isn't really a lot of tension or drama, however, the managaka creates characters that are easily likeable and who readers care about.

Like I said, it's basically a fairy tale. Do yourself a favor and read this manga. There's no one who I wouldn't recommend this to.
