Description
After losing her parents when she was young, Rio has been supporting herself and her brother. Rio believes that it's useless to rely on others. One day, she buys a trump card of the jack of club, modeled after Sir Lancelot, believing she could gain good money auctioning it off the internet. That night she meets Sir Lancelot in her dreams, which recur every time she sleeps. When Yuuki-kun asks her to go out with him and nearly kisses her, Lancelot suddenly appears out of nowhere and says he has come to save her?!

I totally admit that art is just amazing ( lancelotttt :] ) but character development was dull probably because it is quite short but also I have a problem with the way this mangaka ends her manga. I mean it feels so empty although her plots are good she finishes her stories so unremarkably and cliche

This manga can be separated into two parts. The good parts, and the bad parts.

The art of this was actually well drawn, with the character's expressions well depicted. The story seemed original enough that it made me want to read it.

However, there are a great many things bad about this manga. First off, What I want to say is that it had potential. The manga had potential to be a really good shoujo manga, perhaps even to the point where it is heart-breakingly good.The characters were very cliche, though that is not what bothered me the most. After all, what would a manga be without some cliches? No, what bothered me the most was the pacing and the plot. The plot was a bit scattered, and the pacing of the story went way too fast to even get a grip upon the emotions and feel of the manga. Also, the plot, as in the way the characters dealt with the situation, was not at all realistic. For example, what happens between Yuuki, Rio, and Lancelot felt unreal, like it had a very shaky foundation and would collapse at any minute. Lastly, the characters in the manga felt a little flat to me, with minimal character development, if any, with one character being too perfect, the other being too whiny, and the last being....just being spineless.

This manga is not among the mangas that made me squeal everytime I went to a new chapter. Perhaps, if the series were longer, with more plot and character development, and perhaps a little bit more jealous rivalry, it would be better.Yes, the manga is cute, and yes, the drawing is done really well. However, the only thing I have to say is that: just because there are incredibly hot bishies like Lancelot, who makes up 5 points of my rating, doesn't mean that it automatically deserves a 10.

I usually try to stay away from cliche shoujo and I am getting tired of it...but somehow for this manga I didn't get tired of it at all. Like the previous comments, I agree that it is cliched but done in a very good way. And oh yes, Lancelot is the hottest bishie ever ^^ Now if only someone would finish scanlating this....come on it's only a few chapters!

I've always loved this mangaka's works. Her art is so flowy and beautiful, and her stories are cliche, but wonderfully executed cliches are better than plots that try too hard to be original, ne? 8D; Besides, if Lancelot's character is actually based on history... huhuhu, things are going to heat up with his past! Lancelot is so cool and cute x3 (at the same time, lol~)

Anyways. Seriously, Shimaki Ako really knows what makes a girl happy. <3 Highly recommended. ;A;

I really love this manga. Lancelot is a dreamguy, really. He is so hot, sweet, and funny. *sighs* Wish guys like that were real. Anyway, this is a great manga, and I wish for more chapter releases soon.

Lancelot is too yummy to miss out.

Actually any of SHIMAKI Ako's manga is good. Her drawings are just amazing.

I love this manga!!! I simply adore it!!! This is one of my favourite mangakas, her art is simply superb and as cheesy and cliche as some things might seem, she can still make me squeel like mad while reading her works!
