From Taciturnity Scans:

Ever since the day Ran Kurono's older brother, was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she's a woman forever. For generations the Kurono family has served the Ohtori family as their First Knight, but 11 other lower knights with ill intentions of using the Ohtori family's authority vie for that title. Not only that, but Sei is being tested to see if she is suitable for having the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei's trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei's untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.

Hana no Kishi had potential and the thing i hate the most is when a great manga finishes in it's most crucial moments, it seems the mangaka had some urgent things to do because obviously the ending was so rush, I didn't even see it coming. sad but it was great while it lasted.

Like everyone else I didn't really like the ending. I felt the ending was rush, the manga from the beginning had great potential but somehow lost it towards the end. Maybe a little more about how everything came together and then ending it would of been a good way to put an end to a good series, but it's just me.

it was a nice story over all. i would of liked to of seen a bit more to happen though. it does say she launches her plan after leaving the school but i would of liked to see a little or at least them getting together since it was said theyd wait for each other after the whole plan was over and such. and if the bro and the head chick get together in the end. but over all i enjoyed this story.

Hmm...I like the story. Although there are some parts that are cliched, the plot is still great. You can see the growth of the characters and they will give you a very deep impression. At least that is how it is for me. The only thing I don't like is the ending. It is very abrupt. Like the author got bored with her work and just decided to end it. Yep! you read that right. This manga is finished. biggrin

The story was great I have to admit that.
The real problem is that you get hyped up for the best part with all the risks with the family and then BAM!! The author delivers the killing blow by suddenly shutting down the manga....
This series had great potential but bad execution imo

The whole story plot is okay, with a little twist of there and there. However, one thing that I detest about it was the ending. It's totally ridiculous, I mean like, I wanna see Ran with long hair and a wedding gown marrying Ibara, or even double marriage on Ran x Ibara and Sei x Rin marrying on the same day. >_> the ending totally ruined it.

At first I had high ratings for this so therefore I setted a high standard. But now after seeing the last chapter, I was highly disappointed. WTF is wrong with the author? Why did she had to rush such a good manga?! For those who wish to see Ran wearing a dress and get marry, I will say that you will be angry as well.

People don't like it..??
Is that possible!?!?!?

I agree with the person who said it was simple, yet AMAZING.
Because it is.
O_O At first I was unsure if I was reading a shoujo or shounen, and the author drags you along until her gender's revealed. xD!

SO good!
One of the best genderbender shoujou's I've read!
Because It doesn't involve:
*boy dorms *Love triangles *ex girlfriends.
xD it's NOT CLICHE (for those who care about cliche, I for one, wouldn't care if it was c: )!

It's super good, and the main character is unique! I won't say all that happens, but believe me,

It's really good c:

No. Just no. This manga is what you expect of a typical cliched shoujo gender bender manga with some vague "I trust my allies, nothing can go wrong themes." Ran and Sei are too good to be true and pretty one-dimensional characters.
As far as love-interests go, Ibara is your typical good looking, get out of mess and make bigger ones kind of person and Rin seems pretty disposable to me.
Art is great but slightly over the top.

I thought this manga is going to be something different and thus, I gave it a try. I know how things will be going for Ran when ...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ibara realized that Ran is a girl. Yeh, common plot -> They will not see Ran as a boy anymore... yeh... and the plot suddenly changes to imply signs of romance between them... hmmm okay...

Oh, and ~ at first I thought Sei was the main character but it seems that there's isn't anything in her role. She feels a vessel... [I don't know if anything is going to change later on but I was hoping for something from her... lolz... maybe that will change in the later chapters... i dont know... =/ ]

Having to have read up to chapter 27, I think the plot is just plain average. So far, the scene was just fighting and repeating itself
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
e.g. "Ran's getting emotional which affects her fighting spirit...then Ibara comes along and motivated her" plot. I know Ran's a girl and may tend to feel emotional and get carried away but I was hoping something...

and yeah as per the previous comment, why is everybody (well, not everybody but most of them) falling for Ran?? I know Ran was supposed to be another main character but I feel that she's taking up a lot of the limelight...

talking about romance... there's pretty little romance other than the obvious pairings.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ibara x Ran , Ran's cousin x Ran

There's isn't much character development for Sei and Ran...everything feels shallow so hmm... I guess I'll continue reading to see how it goes...

Don't read this if you're expecting a lot of romance from this.
Read it if you're free and into the art/knight story plot.
