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.

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.

Cute but...kind of disturbing?

If you don't read into it AT ALL this is a pretty cute series, and I wont lie, I did enjoyed it. However, the age gap is slightly disturbing to me. She's 15 and he's 7. Even if his body does transform into that of a 17 year old in the dark...he's still 7. I mean I get how she's lonely and likes having him around and I could even see a companionship kind of love that gets confused when his body looks older, but it still seems wrong if you think about it at all. I don't know how you fall in love with someone who is mentally 7 when you're 15. I mean, it wouldn't matter as much at the end when he's 17 and she's 24, but 7/15 is a bit much. So yeah, I guess it just surprises me that no one else seems to be upset by this? Wouldn't something like this count as shoutacon?

That aside, it is really cute. The feelings don't really seem forced, and I liked all the characters. The plot was fairly original. Nothing too deep, but a cute shoujo series. The ending/last volume felt a bit all over the place though. So I guess if the age thing wont bother you, I'd suggest it.

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~
tho i wish VERY badly that it lasted longer =]

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.

This is such a great manga! It's cute and it's innocent (not perverted or sexual like so many mangas now). It's got a nice mixture of magic, mystery, and romance. I think everyone should read it! It's nice and short too, so it's a good read that doesn't take weeks to finish!!
