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 don't think it is anything like Love Monster - which I find irritating. The girl seems to have a pureness, unlike the girl from Love Monster who was always being touched ^^;;;; by other boys.

I love this story~ I think it is really sweet, and the devil is hot. They have a tender love that goes beyond that of some dumb manga. The main guy (devil - Siva) is someone who deserves respect, and the girl is not some bimbo idiot-- she is 15 and has a pure heart. She does whatever she can for Siva and considers him irreplaceable.

Siva is quiet, but we are starting to see his feelings for Lys... he probably followed her at first because she has his heart, but the reader can see that she has melted his heart. Some may say that he follows her for his heart, but his reactions to her hugging him and showing emotion can not be mistaken for anything -- it is love.

To the people who have given it lower marks - how can you tell after one or two chapters what it is? It wonderful and a delight to read.

Chlorophyll is nuts

I think this manga is going to be a great one. It doesn't look like it has a lot of longevity though. The art is fantastic and the story, which is what I judge a manga on, has great potential. The author is new though (or at least she is to mangaupdates) so its difficult to know what to expect.

Chlorophyll is nuts in ways I don't comprehend. Hanatsukihime has no relevance whatsoever to Love monster. In fact I cannot see any way to compare them other than the fact that it has devils (could be 'monsters' from love monster). I can see how he got the fact that Lys is stupid (jumping from a window to save a ring) but one event may not govern the whole manga. I'm thinking he didn't read the whole chapter, because he seems to have gotten a bunch of the facts wrong. (which I won't mention for spoilers-even though it's only 1 chapter in biggrin )

Really Recommended read! Like a lot of others, I hesitated to read it, but am SO glad that I did. I mean... the plot is really good (for something with 2 volumes and 8 chapters *o*) and it wasn't boringly cliche, I'm fine with cliche... just when it makes the whole manga predictable. The ending was quite beautiful too XD but I wash I could see a Siva/Lys child *drools*

Art: Beautiful♥
Story: Great
Length: Reasonable (I kinda wish it had an extra volume.)
Characters: Nice for the Serie's length.
Romance: Sweet and Pure
Overall: Stop reading this comment and start reading this wonderful book.

It was a short and sweet tale. Artistry was absolutely stunning. Love the concept. Very touching. My only thing is that it ended too soon. Wish it was a bit more detailed.

a girl was saved by having a devils heart. She travels to find him as a dancing girl. She doesn't really know that the devil is traveling with her. He keeps saving her all the time while she fights to live her life. He then gives up on taking his heart back but he goes nuts and in the end she takes her life to save him. But the other monster saves her by giving her child's heart to make her live. Sad but beautiful tale.

This is BY FAR my favorite manga ever! I've read it repeatedly and it's never lost its touch for me. smile I simply adore the Arabian-desert-esque setting of the manga. It's beautifully detailed and most importantly, it's different since practically the majority of shoujos are set in school. I really loved the tattoo marks the characters had, as well as their clothes!

Lys was decent - not your typical shoujo lead. She tries to be strong, but obviously she's physically unable to protect herself too much. Siva was pretty much your ideal shoujo male lead!

He was so cute when he threw fruits at Lys, paying her for a date xD

It started out as a typical fluffy romance, but halfway through, it becomes much more serious. The best part about the manga is the plot twist near the end! It was unexpected, but it also made sense smile none of that unrealistically cheesy happy endings! I only wished that their romance was a bit more conclusive, but definitely check this out! Her other mangas are equally as awesome!!

This is an okay read. The plot and characters are just kind of middling; they aren't amazing but aren't terrible. The art is very pretty except for

the main guy's "demon" form. Honestly, it looked a little too silly and bishounen-y, but that's my personal opinion.

Overall I think this manga suffers from being shorter than it should be. The relationship between the two main characters is already established by the first chapter, so you get the feeling that you're jumping into a story that's already nearly over.

What beautiful art! What a beautiful little fairy tale that kept me on the edge. The length of two volumes was perfect and the ending -- what a twist. I recommend this short little tale if you want your heart to beat from suspense and the shimmering love that unfolds.

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.
