A young boy is saved by a mysterious gunfighter who uses magical bullets. She is the greatest magician in the world but disappears shortly after saving him. Having fallen in love with her, he trains to become a gun fighter and ten years later, his search comes to an end but his adventure has just begun. Kurohime is a buxom witch with the power to control magical guns. She once made the mistake of challenging the gods and was cursed for her foolishness! Transformed into a little girl named Himeko, she can only regain her former body and powers when she falls in love. But finding love in a world fraught with evil is no easy task.

Slowly won me over and then jumped the shark...

Unfortunately, I have to completely agree with poiso (the reviewer below me).

At first I thought this was going to be a very generic manga: pure-hearted boy and tsundere girl fighting evil. But thanks to this duo, their relationship, the emotions, the great artwork, really great design of monsters/gods and the action, I grew a strong liking to this manga.

...But then at one point, I just felt like they were just procrastinating and procrastinating the ending, adding unecessary elements that felt crowbarred in, unimportant stories - especially about other couples, plot elements I hated, and at one point I even felt like they overused the cute-girl-cries schtick.

Really great first arc, but unfortunately very dissappointing after that, in my opinion.

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!

Unexpected...

I've just finished this manga, and what can I say...1st arc and/or 2nd was rather good, but after that it's like I was reading different manga. Well, before picking up this manga, I wasn't expecting a lot from it, I just thought it'd be nice to read something light and easy (shounen, romance, ecchi...;d), but it was beyond my expections and like I mentioned, first few arcs were really good...
And thus comes the sad part...ending or like last quarter of this manga. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say...It's so ridiculous and silly. Feels like somebody forced mangaka to destroy all the effort that's been put into this manga...It's really sad to see yet another manga with
some potential being ruined like that...
I'd give this manga 5, but let's just pretend that it wasn't ruined and all of its potential was used.

The art and story are pretty good, but there are some plot holes and other oddball issues. Don't think too much about the plot after the first arc and just enjoy the story, that's all I can warn without spoilers.

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.

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.

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.

This is one of the mangas that I really enjoyed and would read once again just for the fun of it, although the ending felt a little forced and weird but the last page sure gaved me a laugh.
