Description
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.

this series has a great blend of action, romance, and comedy. 1st couple arcs were kinda boring. But when the series goes into Zero's Arc, it's awesome. People should really pick up this series especially when u dropped it because it is a great series after a couple volumes.

While it is repetative, for me it's not at a point where that is annoying yet. The art is cute and Kurohimé isn't some stereotypically unorigional female lead. If the plot just keeps repeating then I'll probally be lowering my rating, but I can only hope it's building up to a big contrast or something, we'll see.

"nothing short of a god-like main female lead,"
That's kinda the point of the story, no? ;P

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.

It started out boring, but actually a good read

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.

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.

Most Beautiful Protagonist Ever!   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I'll say it again, Kurohime is the the most beautiful protagonist you will find in Manga. That should about sum it up for the artwork.

As for the plot, if you read the first three volumes, your reactions would likely be the same as many others (myself included). You would feel that despite the mesmerizing artwork, the storyline is repetitive and cliche. Again, the artwork is the only motivation to continue reading.

However, if you are patient enough to read through Vol 4 where the story ultimately picks up pace (at a rate of 0-60mph in 5sec), you will find yourself in
the tight grip of a beautiful woman/or man (which ever your prefer). Unfortunately, I am caught in Kurohime's tight grip but I don't want to get out.

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.
