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 has beautiful art and a cute story line. I really liked Siva and their love story <3 Haha, I recommend this if you want something short and sweet but with an actual plot that doesn't quite fit cookie-cutter molds. smile

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.

I rather liked this one. The plot was very nice and smooth, and there was character development. However, the female character is a bit too typical at times and even the guy's actions are sometimes predictable. But the mood the author creates covers this and the final climax and ending was well thought out, which is why I give this a high rating. Might reread this in the future. smile

It has some really awesome art. And Siva makes me skip my heartbeat. He is so cute. And Lys' outfits are pretty. Its my first time reading a manga like this. Lys is strong willed and different from your typical shoujo characters. If you wish to read a manga that has demons, beautiful art, a good plot, awesome characters then this is the one for you. After a long time, I actually cried while reading a manga. Basically because I hadnt read anything like this lately. There were tears continuously rolling down my eyes TT^TT

A very lovely story I must say.

The pretty artwork was really what captured me to read this to begin with because it resembles the work of KAYONO without the ecchi stuff, haha. The demons are my absolute favorites because she draws them either very prettty and ugly. The silver demon really is a masterpiece in my eyes.

I thought it was a sweet story which, albeit short, made an impression on me. The relationship between Siva and Lys is very cute and I think it shows how love can be felt in different kinds of way.

I definetly want to read more of her manga in the future; mostly because I'm just a huge sucker for her excellent artwork. o(^_^)o.

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!!
