From Viz:
All high school freshman Airi Hoshina ever wanted was to someday live in a cozy home with a loving husband, and find joy in the little things in life. As a result, she makes it her daily mission to get to school on time because school legend has it that the longer one's non-tardy streak is, the better boyfriend one will find. But just when her daily routine is working like clockwork, an occurrence of fairytale proportions threatens to disrupt her grand plan.

Um.. is no one else disturbed by the fact that she fell for a little kid? No matter if he occasionally turned into a boy her age... his mentality was that of a child. That kinda creeps me out. XD And all the guys liked her.. the ending was rushed, in my opinion, very anti-climactic, too... so.. yeah. Not particularly my cup of tea. It wasn't horrible, though. If you want a light, short read if you're bored, it should be fine. *shrug*

Not only were the drawings fantastic, but the love story was very cute too; it was simple and perfect. I liked that the length of the manga wasn't too long, only 4 volumes, but wasn't too short either.

One of the few series that an older girl gets together with a younger guy. I'm a fan of those because for some reason, they are always better written than the younger girl/older guy series. Maybe I haven't come across a bad one yet?

Hino's art is beautiful as always. Out of all her series so far, this is the best one.

This story was adorable. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves sweet scenes and a funny romantic story. this manga is one of my favourites.
The art was cute and pretty and none of the characters were noticeably intolerable.
Loved this a lot~

I read this manga for the first time when I was in high school; about 7 years ago. It was before I had learnt about Vampire Knight and all of that and I loved it. I have since reread it several times over the years and it never loses its charm.

It is the type of fairy tale that you need to take at face value to enjoy but the exciting parts still make me squeal and the sad parts always break my heart. The art is well done and there are certain character's lines that I will always hold close to my heart. If there was ever a sequel I would go out and read it right away.

The story is just so cute. The art is nice and the costume look gorgeous! This definitely is one of the best mangas. Totally luv it~~~~~~~
@ Konstantine2010: Maybe you are misunderstanding. Have you read the end yet? When Aram turns 17, Airi is 20. And the royal family members have long life, including Airi. So the age is not a problem at all

Overall I thought this was one of those unfound gems. The plot line seems original to me, as it's still in the 21st century, yet has twists of old prophecies and grudges. It's not a huge series, but it's one that's worth reading again and again. No, I'm not a Vampire Knight fan. One part of this just really made me start crying.
The art isn't heavily influenced by gothic style like Vampire Knight, but still has Matsuri's signature everywhere. Depth lacked at some parts, and sometimes the eyes get too huge for my taste, especially on the covers. It's definitely cute.

The plot line starts out somewhat confused, due to the main character's "culture shock," you can call it. It soon developed to it's full context further on.

The characters are simple to understand... but I find that if they had changed too much, as you'd want one too in a normal novel, the way the story would have meant to someone would have changed. You wouldn't have been able to really feel the story.

I would recommend this to someone in search of a fantasy hopeless romantic. I cried, and it wasn't even the end, so I'd expect someone else is probably as pathetic as me? Or at least I hope so!

An all time favourite. I've re-read this a LOT of times but I'm still not sick of it....yet. I still don't know why I like it, well I guess Airi and Aram just have these sweet scenes that makes we go "Awww" and "Kyaaa~".

This is a girly fantasy shoujo I'd definitely recommend. The characters are solid, as are the villains. The art does a good job of illustrating the fantasy parts. The humor is amusing, and the plot moves along nicely.

My greatest nitpick is an afterthought that addresses psychological concerns, and it's that she was primarily attracted to Aram's body. He was literally an adult with a child's mentality. Before Aram grew, his favor was one-sided. She changed her thoughts only after his body changed. The relationship would have never developed if his body wasn't attractive enough. She could not refrain from dating a kid for his body, which is odd, but, fortunately, not the bizarrest thing in shoujo. ^^;

Nevertheless, this manga has many good points! It's a cute romantic comedy that shoujo readers will definitely enjoy.
