Description
From Manga Abyss:

Japan's law enforcement has worsened, and bodyguards are a necessity in the new era. Asahi is employed as a bodyguard for Kisaragi Sakuya, the talented heir of a rich family. Asahi was brought up in downtown Tokyo, and she is very compassionate. But will she always be able to stand strong against the utterly cold Sakuya? This is a powerful, shoujo, bodyguard romance.

This is the one shot of the movie that Ito and Makoto starred in from W Juliet II.

Yes it was fairly predictable but all in all pretty well done! If you're looking for something unique and new storyline this probably isn't for you but if you're looking for just a nice easy, good read this is probably something you'd enjoy! biggrin

The start of it is kinda boring, I fell asleep countless times just trying to finish reading one two chapters, but in the middle it got more interesting, I think that's when Asahi's past comes to play, then nearing the end, it somehow became mellow, like it became boring again, so to me this one wasn't very fascinating, it was ok, not bad, but not awesome.

Seriously I just have to comment on this. I have to agree, there was almost nothing original to this manga. After reading Tokyo Crazy Paradise, the action here fails to surprise you and after reading Marmalade Boy, the incest stuff just isn't well thought out. The plot is predictable enough. But still, I liked the manga. I had just read W-Juliet I and II and I was really amazed by how the spin off turned out to be actually better then the main story. I mean the characters had actual deepness. Not some simple classic shoujo stereotype.
I must admit, the mangaka has gotten a lot better with the drawings, in the firsts chapters of W-Juliet it was really messy, but now it's gotten much better. However, what really ticks me out is the way the main character is soo feminine. Don't get me wrong, he looks gay. Nothing against gay people, really. But I don't see a gay who's gay dating a girl. Neither do I see it as romantic. He was just way too feminine in the drawings. When it comes to gender bender, some writers pulled it off better, I mean, just because the guy dresses up as a girl, doesn't mean he has to look that way.

Sorry, I got a little bit carried away. Anyways, I liked the manga, the characters were well developed, I loved the way the girl could stand up for herself, although Tsukasa is still the best! Well, I've said too much already, give it a try if you don't have anything else to do.

I'm surprised to see naked breast in this series. Considering how conservative W Juliet was.

If this really were the movie shot within W Juliet, it's kinda funny to know what Makoto's reaction is with his wife's half-nude body. =)
