LOTS of ups and downs... i had to put this down many times out of frustration but i persisted and was pleasantly surprised that i was satisfied when it was over. the ending wasn't perfect but it wasn't bad either. also i hate the island prince guy who becomes kurohime's fanboy, i was wishing every time i saw him kurohime would tell him to go screw himself and stop thinking he's so special and had a chance with her after "zero" who's the real man and only one deserving kurohime's affections, died/disappeared.

Definite Re-read Material.

A simply amazing read. I felt that there was a bit much.. flaunting at times, but it didn't really take away from the experience.
Alright. The time travel arc. If you don't want to nitpick to any significant degree, it wasn't sub-par; it just wasn't on-par with the rest of the series.
The story really hit home for me, which is why I give it a 10 (art improves chapter by chapter as well).
I just wish it was longer. Few loose ends/questionable ending.

Just like everybody else said, i thought the start was a bit shaky, but the first arc as a whole was amazing. But i thought that zero, as a character, becomes less and less likable after the first arc. The beginning of second arc was alright. Reading time travel arc, however, was very frustrating. And just as the manga start to move toward the end, it got a little more interesting, and i was prepared to give it something between 8.5 - 8.9. however, the last chapter, particularly the last few pages, made me feel betrayed. I was like, seriously? That's the ending? It was unexpected in a very bad way. It upsets me pretty bad.
The art was good, interesting how the heroine looks different all the time though. I don't really understand the point of that. It's like she's been drawn by different artist or something.
The plot up to the first arc was amazing, after that it wasn't that interesting.
The romance was alright. The action was great. And the ending was attrocious.
It was an okay read.

This was one of my favorites until I hit the arc where time travel came into place.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I felt almost betrayed by the author. Once time travel started happening the author was basically like, "Remember everything you JUST read? Well it was pretty much pointless and misleading. You know that main character? Yeah, well not only is he dead but he really isn't Zero."


The plot becomes increasingly hard to follow to the point where you have to wonder what the heck happened to the author. Its like he had a clear idea at the beginning then went through a lobotomy and picked it back up.

Overall a good read until the aforementioned arc.

Almost awesome...

This manga started out as one of the best things I had ever read. The first ark was amazing and the beginning of the second ark was still great. But then all of a sudden the story just starts to take a dive once they get to time travel. It's almost like someone else entirely wrote it. If I had known the second arc would've ended like that I'd have just stuck with the first arc. I do suggest reading it, but well just don't expect much from the end.

like most guys say here after the awesome first ark it becomes total nonsense. its turns into one of those crazy Manhwas that has some crazy and twisted storyline (non sexually ofcorse, dont worry its not that f ed up lol) .

p.s loved the male lead in first ark, zero is the best character in manga eva

I do agreed that that the story is a bit "fail" in the end. (you may say the author just rush to finish it)
But the quality of the images that was improving every chapters make this manga work more than 6/10.
I would give it 7.5/10.
But i 'm very attach to the characters (I must say Zero = one of the best characters of manga's world)
Personalty i like this manga so i give it 10/10.

Although the first arc of the manga is fantastic, the plot afterwards slowly loses its positive qualities. Around chapter 40, reading the manga was difficult because it was boring and lacking progression of the main plot. The ending could have been better, but it's not.

Nice End but Too Many Plotholes

Truthfully, I didn't expect this manga to end this early since I was waiting on some of the plotholes to be filled up and more action for a least a few more volumes. Anyway, this was a great manga overrall as the story and characters was interesting and very refreshing. My compliments to the author doing a great job with this manga.

Read the whole 18 vols in 1 sitting. I feel like it dragged on and the ending seemed kinda rushed, but a interesting and unique read indeed.

The romance developed too quickly, having Kurohime find love and becomes all lovely dovey seems questionable. But it is still good and throughout the whole read there are romance, humour, light heartedness, seriousness, development, twists, fantasy, and more. Though the time travelling? Hmmmmm.

A recommended read!
